Some New Shoes

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!

I really like the first outfit, and I think the second outfit needs a long, hippie skirt.

Ooh, I didn't think of that! Sounds good - I think these fru-fru shorts are supposed to be worn with heels anyway. Thanks for the tip!

I love your new shoes - especially the platform and 2011 outfit. . . Great job on the shorts - I know you'll getting plenty of use out of them with your beach trips this summer! I love it when I feel trendy (it reminds me of undergrad!).

You look great! I love the peep toe pumps, and you look tres chic! I don't get the point of the bootie sandal thing either...though my very fashion forward daughter loves them!

Pammie, I was never trendy in undergrad, so this is new for me!
Lisa, I'm glad to know they're called bootie sandals, but that sounds awful. Maybe I'm too old for these....

I like everything else but not sure about those sandals...at first glance I thought you were showing what happened when Jake got a hold of them. *don't give me a nerve pinch for that!**
