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?

    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.

    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.

    I love that bag.  The one you linked to looks much larger and of a different color.  Is that really the same bag?

    I have a pair of leapord print heels from Naturalizer (on sale $20) and they are slightly metallic. I love wearing them! Thanks for this inspiration…. I have a similar pink shirt and look forward to pairing it with my heels 🙂
