Meet Morgan! That’s the cutesy name of these Mary Jane pumps from Target. Unfortunately this photo from the website makes them look like frumpy, geriatric librarian shoes, like I should wear them with my knee-high stockings rolled down to my ankles. Just take my word for it, they are adorable shoes.
As much as I love shoes, I hardly ever buy any. I have a strong practical streak that doesn’t let me buy shoes just because they’re cute, and I’ll talk myself out of a purchase each time.
Except this time! These shoes have a 2 inch heel, and after being frustrated with 4 inch heels on every damn pair of shoes I see, I was excited to see a pair of shoes I can actually wear to work and not have to limp home on battered toes and throbbing feet. I like that they will look great with long or short skirts, as well as with a suit or trousers. When I tried them on and they were actually comfortable, I was sold.
As an honorable mention, I also love these peep-toe heeled booties, but alas, a 3.5 inch heel is too much torture for me.
