I’m going to have to change Merchandise Monday’s name. It doesn’t fit when I don’t post my item until Friday. I don’t want to post useless junk either, I like it to be quality things that I don’t mind suggesting you spend your pennies on. It’s more like a personal review anyways, so I’ll work on a name….plus, if I remove Monday from the name I can feel free to post it on whatever day the inspiration comes to me! That’s exactly what happened this week. It was finally warm enough yesterday to throw on some spring garbs and head outdoors for a play date. While I was browsing my shoes, I happened upon my most ADORED cognac (cone-yack) flats from last summer and squealed. Going through your seasonal clothing at the start of each new season is the best. You get excited all over again when you remembered how much you loved that item. I remember them being out of stock last year about a week after I bought mine, so I sent a little wish up as I searched Target’s site just to see if they happened to restock them for this Spring, I was super excited to see that they had! You know flats usually starts to fray and fall apart at the end of about two weeks of wear? These don’t. I’m an avid toe scuffer too, I have no idea why, I promise I’m not clumsy, but even the toes are still in excellent condition! The straps didn’t stretch beyond belief, and they still look just as cognac as they did the day that I bought them. They have held up better than some of the $60-$80 flats that I have bought before, they are SUCH great quality at SUCH a good price. They match everything, like literally. I feel like cognac is such a great color to mix with black, it’s the perfect blending agent. Did I mention that these shoes are super comfy? I have issues with flat shoes, and stick to wedges or heels to avoid the discomfort that they bring but I’ve worn these for day long adventures and not a blister or sore arch to be found for miles! The best part is…they’re only 20 buckaroos. And they’ll last you all season and probably into next season, maybe even the next. You most likely won’t find them at your local Target store, so ordering them online is your best bet. They run true to size, and if you spend $50 you’ll get free shipping! Buy them here and wear them everywhere! I’d snatch some up soon though, before the rest of America steals them. Consider them a Spring/Summer staple if you need a good reason to buy them, because you can’t pass up a staple, right?

I’m itching to buy these beauties, but the cognac isn’t available at the moment…darn.
This skinny belt would be a cute way to tie your outfit together if you are wearing pants or shorts with your flats.
This crossbody bag would look adorable as well.
Just in case you were looking for a way to spend $50 for some reason, problem solved.

P.S. Do my pictures look bigger? I figured out how to make them upload to a better size for your viewing, so you don’t have to zoom in all of the time! Also, I designed a new signature to put at the bottom of all of my posts! I hope that you like it! Did you know that I do all of my own icon designing? I do it in Microsoft Word too! Crazy, I know! I may have to teach you one day…
