This happens every week: I go into Target for makeup, groceries, toilet paper. I leave Target with a new pair of shoes and I forget everything else on the list. This is why I like to grocery shop; not because I like to cook dinner and because toilet paper is essential to life. But because.... shoes. 

I found this pair last night and I couldn't get home, fall asleep and get ready fast enough today in order to wear them. But really leopard print heels -- can you blame me?

  13. Just bought leopard strappy wedges from there (online) yesterday. Can't wait to get them and wear them always!! God bless that store. And love the color combos in this outfit! I totally almost bought that shirt and now I'm regretting not getting it...

    ReplyDelete
  14. Haha, Target'll get you every time! They actually lose money on their food sales, but they know many people will shop for other things while they're in the store, which is why they keep on with the grocery items.

    I love that bag! It looks perfect for work/travel.

    ReplyDelete
  15. that happens to me at target too! :) adore the shoes.

  25. Ahh, girl - I am the same way with Target...it's why my husband insisted we get a RedCard so we could start getting a discount/refund on all my impulse purchases!  Love this outfit, btw - cargo pants never looked so good! :)

  27. Also, the first thing that crossed my mind was, "Kendi would wear these." I was so right!

  28. Target is the place where my money goes to die...I mean where else can I find shoes, clothes, and forget my groceries all in one place?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I have to go to Target tomorrow for the essential and I can't wait! I think I will add leopard heels to my shopping list :)

  34. Killer shoes is right. I've come to the conclusion that you can wear leopard shoes with almost anything. Or yes, actually really anything. 

    ReplyDelete
  35. I got BR's Mad Men leopard heels last season and wear them with everything - they are SO fun! Enjoy!!! I can't wait to see you remix them in all kinds of fun ways. Your whole outfit is fabulous. :)

  38. I almost got those today! I ended up with teal green suede wedges instead. I already have some Leopard wedges too so I passed on these. They look great on you though!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I wish my Target had such nice shoes! You look so effortless as always!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Lovely outfit! Those heels are to die for -- no wonder you wanted to wear them so bad! They look really good on you, and you're so lucky to be able to pull them off, I sure can't :(

  45. I went to Target today to get my dad a birthday card. I got a card, pretzel M&Ms, a Diet Coke, and a pair of shoes. Hey, they were on clearance...$15!! Target actually puts crack in the air vents so that you're always convinced you need to stay there.

  46. Those heels are perfect, I love a good leopard print! And yes Target is a magical place where I always, without fail, spend more money than I meant to.

    ReplyDelete
  47. LOVE them! Are they comfortable though? Sometimes it's hit and miss with stores like that.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Animal-print heels fierce up any outfit.  At work, I wear them to meetings with parents, just because I want to feel fierce.  I have issues...

  49. I think that's why Target places their clothes and shoes at the front of the store and groceries at the back. They get me every time.

  62. I saw those shoes today at Target and told my husband, "Oh, Kendi got these," as I had seen them on Instagram. He proceeded to stare blankly at me and ask who Kendi was.


    Offended, I stammered, "The girl whose clothes I'm always showing you on the internet!"

    Geez...men.

  63. I have those shoes & love them! What size is your top? Does Zara run small? I want to order it! Thanks!!

  69. I love those shoes! Unfortunately Australian target isn't like what you describe... it's more the place you go to get plus size t shirts and discount old lady bras... 

    ReplyDelete
  70. Those are fab! I always turn to Target for my yearly leopard ballet flats- I'll have to check out their leopard heels now :)

  75. I'm not a leopard girl but those are tempting-- I'd break my neck in a 4.5" inch heel though. Lordy! You wear them well.

  104. Target = one big trap. See, now that you've forgotten all your supplies, you're gonna have to go again and get MORE shoes! Seriously, it's the best and worst place ever :)

  107. oh I LURVE those shoes! A perfect summer to fall transition. I'd glady sacrifice about 3-5 toes to wear those around this year. Not 6 though. :)
