This morning, while everyone was running Shamrock races and guzzling down green beer, I was in the deserted aisles of my local Target (as I had already celebrated St. Paddy’s Day last weekend when the weather was nice and not cold like today!).
Aside from the usual Sunday Target shopping list, I had seen an advertisement that shoes were buy one, get one 50% off. Unfortunately, that must have been only online, or my local Target didn’t get the memo, because all shoes were full price. That didn’t stop me from trying several pairs and going home to buy them.
I was pleasantly surprised at the cute shoes that Target had in store. I’ve never bought shoes at Target, but after hearing some good reviews, I thought I’d give them a shot. I tried on these simple black wedge espadrilles. The straps are elastic, which made them pretty comfortable. The style is great for anything from work pants to jeans to dresses and skirts. I paraded around the store in them for a while before snapping a picture of the box so I could go home and buy them through ebates* with a Target e-gift card that I had (see explanation below).
I loved these black heels but thought that a high stiletto might be pushing it for someone who just had knee surgery. I was pretty impressed at the trendy style and think they’d be a good pair of fun shoes for the summer.
I picked up these adorable plastic bow sandals for the pool this summer. Yes, they’re kids’ shoes. Even though I’m a 7.5 or an 8 in women’s shoes, I find that I sometimes can wear kids shoes because of the width. Kids’ shoes are generally wider than adults’ shoes, which is great for my fat toes.

In keeping with the kids’ shoes theme, I fell in love with these glittered girls’ flats. The roomy toe box in the size 6 was perfect and I couldn’t resist a little sparkle. However, I found them online in gold after taking the silver ones home so I ordered them through ebates* too! One pair of glitter flats is enough though, so I’ll decide which I like better when the gold come and return the unnecessary pair.
*For those of you not in the know, ebates is a great website that gives you cash back every time you buy something through their website. There’s no catch, I swear! If you want to check it out or sign up, please use my referral link here! I earned 2% cash back for my Target purchases online today. It might not be much, but it adds up!
These boys’ faded red canvas slip ons also caught my eye but I didn’t think I’d get enough use out of them to justify the purchase and closet space. What do you think??
I’m no stranger to buying little boys’ shoes for myself. Like the girls’ shoes, the toe box is wider is good for my feet. Last year I played flag football in boys’ cleats. It doesn’t hurt that they’re cheaper!
These girls gladiator sandals were almost too cute to pass up…but again, I wasn’t sure how much use they would get and I thought it was getting a bit creepy that I was buying kids shoes for myself. Aren’t they cute though?!
After Target, I went to Old Navy, but I’ll post my purchase from there another day because I bought something for an event that deserves it’s own post!
