October Haul + Penne Pepperonata Recipe

This month's haul was all boots/booties with the exception of one flannel shirt and a bunch of soft toys that I couldn't resist. As mentioned in the last post, I couldn't help getting the Target wedge booties and also decided to get these Caslon booties since I'm always a fan of how comfortable this brand is for me. 

Here are some recent Target finds:

Left: Girls' Rib-Knit Peplum Long Sleeve Top, Spanx Faux Leather Leggings, Marc Fisher Izzie Boot. Middle: Wild Fable Women's Puff Short Sleeve Dress, Ugg Quincy Boot.
Right: Target Katherine Lace-Up Wedge Boots.

I was really into these super tall UGG thigh-high boots at first because I love how these will keep me super warm come winter when commuting to work but they're honestly super hard to walk and sit in so I'm hopeful an Aldo version I purchased recently will be just as warm and easier to wear.

I'm really into the recent flannel trend and this one in black, white, and pink that caught my eye in the H&M girls section when I went to pick up some plushies for the girls.
