We Love Target Style Challenge: Shoes

For the week-long “We ♥ Target” style challenge hosted by Whitney @ Along the Lines of Style and Heidi @ Literate and Stylish, today’s theme is shoes. Although I was this close to highlighting my strappy black wedges (seen here), I chose instead to highlight my most recent Target purchase of striped canvas flats. In the two months I’ve had these shoes, I’ve already featured them five times on the blog (including earlier this week, ha!), and I’ve worn them a few times more than that, almost every weekend inbetween.

This time, I wanted to make these striped shoes more work-appropriate. And really, this turned out to be like a work version of my casual look earlier this week featuring these shoes! Funny how I didn’t register that until looking at the pics. Plus, for my final library instruction class of the term (woo-hoo!), my choice of footwear paid off. These flats are really comfortable — perfect for teaching — and they also looked more professional when paired with my wide-leg grey trousers.

Pattern-mixing stripes! This did not go unnoticed by co-workers. 😉

The choice of striped shoes (and cardigan) was also good timing, as this week’s color challenge for my faculty union was to wear red. Fitting, then, that these pics were taken in the main courtyard of my college, right across from our library. 🙂

      Hmmm… I almost overlooked these shoes, as they stuck in with the flip flops, hanging against the back wall! So they weren’t in the regular rows of shoes. There were a couple of other textures, but OF COURSE I went for the red, white & blue (trim). 🙂
