Awesome August : Day 3

For Lent this year, I gave up shopping.  I actually managed to go 40 days without shopping for myself, with the exception of a pair of shoes I bought for my cousin's wedding.  However, I feel like I totally missed out on this very cute yellow spring trend that seemed to only be a trend during the 40 days I was not shopping.  Go figure.

Since then I've had a yellow cardigan and a pair of yellow shoes on my wish list.  Every time I would come across a yellow sweater it wasn't the right yellow – I wanted baby duck yellow, not greenish-yellow or orangish-yellow.  And every time I saw pair of yellow shoes, the price just wasn't right or they weren't in my size... in terms of shoe size I'm totally average – somewhere between a 7.5 to a 9 depending on brand – so by the time I get to a pair of shoes I like, my size is usually gone.

Then the other day when I was at Target, this pair of dark yellow wedges that I had been eying were suddenly on sale – $12 and in my size! 

It's funny, but I used to have this weird irrational hate for wedges.  I'm not sure why because I'm a nightmare in heels unless they have a ankle strap of some sort... Then I got a pair of TOMS wedges and I was converted.  These ones aren't great for running, jumping, or climbing trees or anything, but damn do I look good walking from my desk to the water cooler.

Shop: Similar pair from Target
