Happy feet!

I didn't mean to go shoe shopping. Really, I didn't. I was at Target stocking up on essentials (tea, gum, kid's cereal!) when I spotted these black gladiator sandals. On sale. I've been pretty good about saving money lately, but when I put these babies on, my resolve crumbled.

I've been looking for the perfect pair of gladiators for over a year now, but couldn't find an affordable and comfortable pair. These are non-leather, too, another stipulation for my footwear that makes shoe shopping more difficult. Not these lovelies!

Sleek, stylish, and comfy enough for work and play. What's not to love?

Tee: Men's department, Urban Outfitters
Sunglasses: Simply Vera

Necklace: Borrowed from Mum
Bracelet: Gift, also from Mum

Jeans: Ann Taylor Loft

Sandals: Target

Bag: New York & Company

Also, a quick note to everyone who reads and subscribes to this blog: Thanks for all the love! I've been experimenting with a name change for this site, as web crawlers seem to have difficulties finding "Ip & Aud." I've decided a subtle change would be best, so you all know where to find me. My URL will stay the same, but if you've already linked me to your blogroll, please update and list me as "Ip & Audrey." Thank you so much! I love you all and cherish your support, witty comments and advice!

Your jump shot is adorable. I love you and I love this outfit! <3

Your new gladiators are perfect. I've never been able to find a pair that suits me either, but these make me smile (and want to hurry on over to Target). Also, I'm in the market for new jeans and I've been meaning to try out those at Loft for a while now. Since you're in the know, how do you like them?

They're cost-efficient and comfy jeans! But everything in the store tends to run big, so go a size smaller than you think you should. Trust me, they stretch. Those jeans I'm wearing in the photo are way too big on me now. :( And they fit well when I tried them on in the store. Of course. Let me know how your Loft shopping experience goes!

I adore your shots!! The sandals are ultra sweet, and there is nothing wrong about spoiling yourself every once in a while.=D There isn't a target around here so my quest for my summer gladiators is turning into a bit of a headache.

Those shoes are great.
P.S. I got the H&M dress just a few weeks ago.
Also, only one person has successfully guessed my college so far--I don't give to many clues. :)

ohh the gladiators are amazing! you sure did well to buy them, and they fit that relaxed outfit perfectly!

I think it's lovely that you want to come and explore your origins, you're more than welcome to come and if you do, do not forget to tell me! :)

have a lovely weekend.
