Food and Style with an African Twist

Brown, Black and Red

I was talking to my work colleague the other day, telling her how I often see nice items that I like on Target's website but when I go in store to buy it, I haven't been lucky, especially with shoes.  Its either my size is no longer available or they don't fit properly.  The very next day, I was out doing my grocery shopping when I decided to pass by Target, just to try my luck, when I found these flats in my size and they fit perfectly.

Of course they were coming home with me, that's the sensible thing to do, right? A very loud YES I hear from all you reading. Okaaaay, calm down, it did make it's way into my trolley and through checkout and here it is making it's first of many appearances on the blog.  I just could not let it sit at home all on it's own as it was kind of begging for an outing or maybe, its the other way around, I was itching to wear it.

Thank you very much for visiting and reading my blog and Happy Easter!

  14. Oh yes. Yes. I'll have what she's having!!!! So pretty, those little darlings with your low key outfit and perfect bag. Excellent. Be you're proud of yourself!
    I don't know about your Target, but ours often keeps multiple sizes in back if you don't see them on their big shelves where it seems they must be. Check with your store, and then, for heaven's sake, don't tell anyone you know there that they do that ...unless they don't wear your size!

  16. Fantastic shoes! I have the same luck with Target, most of the time the stuff is sold out before I get there. I've taken to ordering online but sometimes the sizing is really weird so I order multiple sizes and see what's what once it arrives. I had good luck with the Peter Pilotto collaboration and ended up two shirts I love. I really like the clutch you are carrying, as well as that gorgeous watch! XO, Jill
