In Real Life: Target's March Shoe Highlights

I've decided to start referring to my "Off the Rack" posts as "In Real Life" - let me know if you like/dislike/don't care about the change. Moving right along, yesterday I checked out the shoe offerings at my local Target. It was the first day of spring and sandals were finally out! I fell in love with a pair of nerd-chic Mossimo flatforms but the back strap kept slipping off when I walked. I wanted to love them but they just didn't work out. So then I turned my attention to some pewter sandals that are a DVF "Opal" knock-off (which I posted earlier here). These wedges look great on and feel pretty comfortable. Other highlights include some brown and orange strappy wedges, very Tory Burch-esque, bright cobalt and turquoise platform sandals, ankle-cuff flats, and ankle-strap espadrille heels. Really, there are so many great wedges right now. Keep reading to see dozens more IRL photos - which ones did you buy or plan on buying?
