This weekend I made a surprising discovery: Target has really cute shoes. Actually, I’ve known this for awhile but I tend to periodically forget and then be surprised all over again when I see something like this in the store:
I am generally not a fan of animal prints. Like, at all. But these are very wearable and not at all tacky! The heel is a nice height, and I love the (probably fake) calf hair. Unfortunately they do not fit me properly, at all. The 7.5 was too tight, and the 8 was too loose and I kept walking out of them. But you should try them on if you’re in the market for some trendy, surprisingly affordable pumps.
I also noticed these boots online, and was really excited to find them in my local store to try on:
I may actually bite the bullet and get these. They’re not real leather, but they’re $35 so I’m not complaining. Great heel height, and they looked good under jeans (I just can’t make the jeans-tucked-into-boots look work for me). Sometimes black boots can be a little too biker-chick, which…is not the look I am going for. That’s not a concern with these boots. I also really liked the taupe suede version, which reads much more tan than the photo on the website.
These boots actually reminded me of boots a certain Ms. Middleton has been photographed wearing, and it turns out I’m not the only one to make that connection: check out this post on Kate Middleton Blog.
