Walking Target Ad

Yes, I fell off the face of the planet. But I'm back! Not like I was getting any comments anyway...

After leaving a longish comment on Bobbie's blog about two items I purchased at Target yesterday, I thought I'd share with everyone else...which is, presumably, Bobbie again.

Anyway, I bought these boots:

But I haven't removed the tags yet for this reason: While the fit is perfect, there is absolutely NO ROOM for pants to be tucked inside the (heh) shaft. So I've been flirting with these (on eBay):

They flare! For the exact purpose of tucking pants into them! Nothing wrong with having two pairs of low/flat boots though...(well, three, counting the brown ones I already own and happen to be wearing right now)

Anyway, I had been wandering the aisles of Target, picking out sooo many different things to try on, like corduroy skirts and this adorable shawl collar pullover...

...but then I got a phone call from my good friend Cliff. Since we hadn't talked in so long and there was a lot to share (like his engagement!), I never made it into the dressing room. I ended up putting everything back on their respective racks and heading to the checkout line, when I spotted this cardigan:

I grabbed it and bought it, but now I'm having second thoughts. I mean look at it on the model-- not super flattering, is it? And is argyle a little too trendy right now? I mean, it's EVERYWHERE!!! I'm thinking that it might be a good idea to go back to Target and exchange the cardigan for other cool-weather options that might have more staying power (like the pullover, but it might be too casual for me now, if you can believe it). Bobbie, help me!!!

First of all, I do miss your blog posts.

Secondly, I am so glad you bought those boots. I adore them. You should've seen me hoping and praying and tugging and tossing. Quite a display of various emotions... and some pretty serious sweating... and I think I was sitting on the floor. The second pair... also very sexy but they are awfully close to one another look-wise. I would probably pick one (well... maybe not... but that's what I'd tell myself).

And I, overall, am not a huge fan of argyle on anything other than socks... and the occasional men's sweater. That being said, I love these two uses and would have to see the cardigan on but... if you are having second thoughts I think go with your gut.

Wish you were here and that we could go shopping. I need a shopping buddy. :(
