Target Tues-yay, Shoe Edition

Hola Campers!  Hope you all had a great holiday weekend!  For your budgeting pleasure, we’ve rounded up our favorite steals from Target’s shoe section this morning.  Also useful – before you pop those tooties into open air footwear – is THE BABY FOOT PEEL.  Best $8 you’ll ever spend.  That little packet of what feels like fizz pops on your feet could turn Grandpa Bud’s calloused, normally-only-softened-via-a-belt-sander hooves into baby’s-bottom-soft feet.  Trust us.  (Grace Atwood does a helpful write-up on it here, but Steph just did this a few weeks ago and it’s not nearly as disgusting as everyone makes it out to be.  Definitely more Elmer’s glue-like peeling than a snake shedding its entire self… and ps, the nightly soaking does help.  So does hot yoga.  And hers started peeling after the 3rd day and were all done and buttery soft after a week.)

Without further ado, here are the Target kicks we’re into right now – and btw, these are the summer shoes we most often wear each season. No need to spend a ton of $ – these are cute and comfy and will do just fine!:

Listen, Eat, Wear, See, Read. Repeat.

LISTEN: “One Dance” by Drake, Wiz Kid, and Kyla. Go ahead and say howdy to your official, shiny new Spring/Summer jam. PS, remember the time two weeks ago when Drizzy left the stage and walked by yours truly after finishing a couple songs with RiRi at her concert in LA? Never thought I’d say it, but Drizzy’s totally dreamy………………………………

EAT: Mini Croque Monsieurs via Big Bear’s Wife. Or, what I imagine God feeds you when you step thru the pearly gates, right after you beg him to let you in. Serve these up at a par-tay and feed your friends the experience of Paris in an adorably miniaturized version.

WEAR: Faux Leather Moto Jacket by BLANKNYC, $98 – otherwise known as the perfect black leather jacket, also known as your Spring staple to wear over all your flowy dresses, or wear with black jeans and a loose tee. Seriously though, I went to a housewarming party last weekend and all the girls had on the cutest outfits with one common part of their outfit: a fitted black leather jacket.

SEE: Dinner at Tiffani’s on the Cooking Channel. Yeah, I mean, it’s not winning Emmys (or IS it; that’d be so badass) but I’m slapping this on here, cause it’s really fun, mindless TV. Every episode Tiffani Thiesen throws a dinner party with celeb friends who’ll seriously make you feel like you’ve stepped back into the 90s. And her recipes are delicious! Ask Steph – we always find ourselves watching this on my couch after my hubby’s gone to bed to watch something manly on Netflix, like some British show about soldiers who beat each other up and then eat each other.

READ: Sweetbitter is THE summer read, supposedly, and I’m excited to dig in:

Sweetbitter | Covet Living

It’s a coming-of-age novel about a girl who moves to NYC and gets a job working at a restaurant, falls into a love triangle, and well, here’s what one critic had to say: “I loved this novel so, so much. It’s rare that a book conveys with such unerring precision what it’s like to be newly arrived in New York—the story itself, but also tiny throwaway details like the sudden authority of the blue sky at dawn after staying up all night, or your bones bracing themselves for what comes next, or the exact mood of a Manhattan bar at three in the morning. I’ve never seen these things described so brilliantly before. Tess is a remarkable narrator: vulnerable and tough and smart, but more than that, she’s inspiring and riveting. This book belongs with all the great essential young-female-in-New York classics.” —Kate Christensen, author of In the Drink and The Great Man

That’s it for now! Have a lovely Memorial Day weekend and don’t do anything we wouldn’t do…………………………………………..
