Killer Shoes


{Top: Zara | Pants:
| Shoes: Target | Bag: Jenny N. | Necklace: Acanthus}

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? 

  • Megan Quinn

    Love everything about this!! And the shoes are AMAZING!! :) I think I have the same relationship with Target that you do!

  • Mrs. Baker

    Haha same thing happens to me! Last week I came home with TWO pair!

  • Karen

    We don't have Target in the UK

  • K Bernatovic

    wow! amazing outfit. i love your shirt <3

  • Closet Fashionista

    Oooh, hello awesome shoes! But I LOOOOVE that bag ūüėÄ

  • Carrie

    Style in the City

  • Miriam

    $9! I picked those same pair up last night. I couldn't resist!

  • Whitney Jensen

    Definitely stopping at Target on the way home from work tonight to pick up a pair of those! 

  • ModaMama

    No, I can't blame you for getting them. ¬†I CAN blame you for not getting me a pair too ūüėČ ¬†

  • Amanda

    I don't blame you – your shoes (heck, your whole outfit!) is amazing!!! LOVE IT. and also, how do you come up with your poses?? i always feel awkward posing for fashion pics… :/ could you please reply back?!? thanks! :)


  • Jessbroyles

    I love this outfit!! Great top! And, how does leopard print heels manage to make feet look so sexy!? :)

  • Ashley Shippen

    im obessed!!! so cute with what you're wearing as well, Kendi!


  • nathyness

    I saw these at Target yesterday and was about to get them but then I didn't! I regret it now that I see how cute they look! Maybe I'll go back tomorrow.

  • Sara B

    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…

  • Anne Taylor

    You look gorgeous!

  • instantphoebe

    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.

  • Kelsey Wilburn

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

  • Kate Harvey

    This is a perfect, perfect look, I love it!!

    Something Ivory

  • Girl and Closet

    Hehe, yup, me too… I go in for groceries and leave with cardigans, dresses, & shoes! ūüėČ You look so fab Kendi love the new shoes and the way that you've styled them, so beautiful!! xo

  • Kendi Lea

    $9 — whoa, you get the prize my dear! I paid $30, but a still a deal. :)


    I know this post is about your shoes, but I can't stop looking at your bag! It looks so buttery and well made!

  • TheresaTran

    Gotta love shoes<3 haha Those are gorgeous! 


  • Whitney

    I just found a new excuse to go to target tonight after work…to buy those shoes. Thanks, Kendi! ūüėČ

  • Melanie

    Totally understandable.  Cannot blame you one bit.

  • MomCatDiaries

    Kendi, you crack me up. I do EXACTLY the same thing. The Hubs can't understand how I end up spending so much money at Target every week , but we still have no paper towels in the house!

  • Sandy a la Mode

    yup!! same thing happens to me at target! i LOVE target!!

  • PennyPincherFashion

    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! :)

  • Seekingstyleblog

    I am the same way! Target always has great shoes!

    xo Jennifer

  • nathyness

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

  • Liz (26 and Counting)

    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?

  • Kacie Ellis

    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 :)

  • Patricia

    I do the same thing when I go to Target :) 

  • jesscause

    love the colors in this outfit, and the shoes are fab, but they look a little high??? are they comfy??

  • GiovannaPacini

    Hahah Love this! It happens to me as well! Those shoes are too cute! Love them!


  • Andi__Smith

    Oh, this is trouble!  Now I want some.  I'll have to think of a reason to go grocery shopping tonight.

  • Lily Marek

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

  • Amandarin

    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. :)

  • Count To Four

    first off love those heels! and love that bag, great outfit, it just feels so comfy with that shirt!

  • Lauren

    love the outfit! The color of the shirt looks so good on you, and who doesn't love leopard heels?! That first photo of you is gorgeous!!

  • Tracie McAlister

    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!

  • ClosetVoyage

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

  • modernbuttercup

    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 :(


  • Kristina Jelcic

     Mmmiaow, great shoes.

  • bestie

    i have the same target disease…it's unpreventable!!

    last day to enter my DALiiA herbal all natural eyeliner giveaway!

  • Kelli Ryder

    SO cute! I love them!! Leopard is always a perfect addition to an outfit :)

  • Kristin

    It's a dangerous place! That's why I haven't been there in a while. These were worth it…very cute!


  • Sarah Harrell

    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.

  • Jackie Saffert

    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.

  • EnterKelly

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

  • Terri Smith

    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…

  • Kemi

    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.

    you hair looks awesome in these photos!

  • Anna Zakrzewski

    I'm convinced Target is the work of the devil.  I can't leave there without looking at pretty much everything and leaving with at least five things I didn't know I needed.

  • AlissaBurton

    what a find! & great looking outfit

  • Joyce

    Ooo sexy! Love them!


  • Jessica Camerata

    Been eyeing those shoes for a while now but know they just have to hurt! And you always seem to find the best stuff at J crew factory.  Those pants are one of my favorites of yours.  Love!

    xoxo Jessica

  • Laura Whitman

    Those shoes are SO ballin'. 


  • naomi

    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!"


  • Tanseyh2001

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

  • Perpetuity

    I'm the same way and was just there tonight! Guess I'll be back for these tomorrow;)

  • jackie

    these are perfect. just because…shoes.¬†

    also, i feel like your blog design changed again ever so slightly? i'm diggin it.

  • Alison

    Ha! You slay me. And so does those shoes!

  • Heather

    Gorgeous! Must. go. to…. TARGET!
    xo Heather

  • Erin Michelle

    I have that issue at Target with makeup and nail polish. On a different note, the colors in this outfit are fabulous together! 


  • emma Armstrong

    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…¬†

  • diane

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

  • phiphi’s blog

    I do the same thing at Target all the time. I just can't go there and not love at least 5 things. Nice shoes! 

  • marjorie

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

  • Sarabelle1243

  • Onna

    I love the outfit Kendi-super super cute! About the shoes-I`ve got the exact same shoes, but in black..they`re pretty (cant`t deny it) ..but really really uncomfortable ..

    Happy Friday!

  • Chaz

    I have seen those in Target and thought they looked a little hooker-y. But you really toned them down and made them look pretty and classy! This is why I love your blog! :)

  • Zadin

    I know where you're coming from. I've kinda developed a fetish from leopard print. Those shoes are certainly a must have piece.

  • Always Maylee

    Those definitely are some fabulous killer shoes!

    xo, Yi-chia

  • Julie Schaefer

    No I definitely can not blame you. Love them!

  • Chris

    Those are some fabulous looking shoes and you paired them well with your outfit.¬† There aren't any reviews of them yet on the Target site…. how did they wear?

  • Tracy

    ME too!!! Every time I go in Target I leave with shoes, sometimes more than 1 pair!! You look great!

  • Marra Mazzella

    You say your style is simple and it is…so simple and chic! I love the shoes with those pants and that top! I need to go buy an outfit like this now.

  • Taylor K. Long

    I usually don't like cargo style things, but those pants are fantastic!

  • Maja

    Gorgeous. Can't wait to cross the border and hit Target next month!

  • Coffeebeansandbobbypins

    I have been looking for a cute pair! I havent seen those in stores yet!

  • Kari Howard

    This is one of my favorite looks you've done.  I'm always looking for new ways to style leopard print shoes.  This is so, so good!

  • sensible stylista

    Ah! I love Target as well.  Those shoes are absolutely adorable.  I love the pop of animal print.  I'm super excited to see all the new designer pieces at Target soon!

  • Debbie Rodgers @Exurbanis

    Fantastic shoes!

    We don't have Target here in Canada – yet. I've heard rumours that they may be opening stores next year – sure hope so!

  • Caroline L.

    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 :)

  • Alexa (Alexa Loves Books)

    I LOVE the leopard print heels – they're gorgeous.

  • Jewel at eatdrinkshoplove

    I saw these at my target and worried about the comfort level. How do they feel? 

  • Angie Shin

    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. :)

    You look adorable!


  • Jupe_Cambria

    I can't blame you at all…they are killer…and besides, I'd be a hypocrite. I went home with leopard loafers last time I went to Target :)

  • Jeans and a Teacup

    Love it! I have a pair of leopard loafers cut I think I need to get leopard heels too!

  • KansasCouture

    Oh man, Target is SUCH a black hole. I always come out slightly disoriented with several things I don't need. But those shoes are hot! Definitely as important as toilet paper.

  • Elena

    Love the outfit and coral blouse!

  • Mindy

    Coral top + leopard heels = perfection! (I totally do the same thing in Target) :)

  • Missleila799

    lovely pants & adore that top color! you look great.

    Those are so wonderful! I love leopard print — in small doses, of course.¬†


  • Gillybarrere

    Such a great look! Love the contrast of colors, and then the pop of leopard. its flawless!

  • Mary Lindsey

    I love the color combination! The leopard heels look great with this outfit. :)

    Cute shoes… but I LOVE the pants.


  • Andrea

     You find the cutest shoes at Target! Mine must have the leftovers! Oh well. I will vicariously through yours!!

  • Priya

    HA! I totally feel ya on the "getting stuck" buying shoes at Target (which is the best stuck I know of. I think I have the sister heels of those in magenta, definitely cute, not the most comfortable, but you look fierce! 

    perfectly priya

  • Jacy Tilton

    I love your military inspired pants paired with amazing leopard pumps and pretty coral! Great look!!

    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 :)

  • Jessetter

    Also target is wonderful!!!

  • Kelly Rae Ehlers

    I was wondering the same thing!  It is the same bag but I think this one is in Arabian Spice:
