I went to Target and had a few minutes to browse in shoes...(you can guess what's coming)...and I made a couple of impulse purchases. Now first let me say that I've been seeing peep-toes like these everywhere, but have had no desire for them at all.
Until I saw a beige pair at Target and tried them on. I know the picture is blurry and terrible and you can barely see the shoes, but it shows that I stepped out of my comfort zone and paired them with some wide-legged pants I bought last year at Loft, and a cowl neck tank I've had for 11 years (yes, 11), and I think I have a pretty 2011 outfit. Please correct me if I'm wrong, because you know I've got zero sense of style.
And I saw something like this the other day and thought, "Why?" They look bizarre to me, but they seem to be popular.
So that's why when I saw these at Target, I had to give them a shot. The shorts are from Saks last year when I was feeling man-ish (do you have these times when you feel frumpy and plain and unfeminine?) and had a Pretty Woman moment. I found a young salesgirl and told her to get me an up-to-date outfit with shorts and top. I never would've bought these shorts - they're shorter than I'm used to, pleated really weird, and the zipper's on the outside, which is a style I'm not buying...oh, except I did buy them.
Lucas gave the shoes the stamp of approval - he said they looked like moccasins. Whatever...now for a pedicure!
