Let me tell you a funny story about these slides. I originally saw them in pink for $90 by Sam Edelman. I was being cray, and I was about ready to buy them, when SUDDENLY my pal Ashley swooped in a saved me from a major purchase on such a trendy item. She said she had seen the same pair from Target for $24! And guess what? They're currently down to $18, girls! Even the "real" ones are on sale for $62 if you prefer those colors (and have more money than me haha!!). Also, my friend Steph said she had the gray "dupes" too! I needed to find them!
I was killing time at Target on Sunday before 10:30 mass, after I dropped my bff off at the airport. I had searched high and low for these slides on the Target site, but my size was sold out in all colors. These are TTS, by the way, and I have my usual 7.5.
Serendipitously, I found one of the last pairs, and they happened to be my size! Major score at the St. Charles, IL Targ! LOL.
Like, how can you even tell the difference?! To me, an oversized bow is an oversized bow, amiright?
They were the focal point of my outfit, but I went with some oldie buy goodie blue hued pieces. My eyelet shorts are literally 5 years old, but here are some similar ones:
Every woman out there needs a button-down or popover chambray shirt in her closet. Actually, I take that back. Every man does, too! Mine is super old J. Crew Factory. Here is another cute version-- super affordable, too! And another, depending on how dark you like your chambray.
^^ Let me tell you about these leg shots. Omg, Mike and I were laughing so hard. I had this idea in my head of these shots-- I had seen them once before on a fellow blogger's site. Well, the problem was I had no idea how to replicate them. The other half of myself in these pics is me on the ground of a rogue parking lot, propped up on my elbows, holding my abs so hard (dying) to keep my feet elevated. Thank God for Pure Barre Geneva, I tell ya. Mind you, this was like some mechanic shop in St. Charles, on a busy road. We looked like major freaks! All in the name of this foot shot I was trying recreate. I wish Mike had a pic of the other side of me. I was just laughing hysterically. Also, he took probably 15 of these and only 3 are even halfway normal. LOL
Here are the heeled version of the "real" Sam Edelman ones. Very cute, too!
Which color do you like best?! I am anxiously awaiting my college roomie/bff (and her husband, son and pup)'s arrival! I can't wait to spend the weekend with them!!!
