Here's a funny: I tried on the shoes pictured above at Target today (sooo cute, soooo impractical), and had the delightful experience of picking many, tiny raisins off the floor while wearing them. That sums up the would-be stylish mom's dilemma nicely, don't you think?
I ended up buying the Eugenia Kim for Target hat below for $7.48:
For some reason, all the Eugenia Kim hats were on clearance, despite the fact that the collection doesn't launch until Sunday? Strange, but I am not complaining. The hats are cute and well made; the woven ones were too small on me, but I have a large head. The Cynthia Vincent shoes, which also supposedly haven't launched yet were well made and seemed to run a little big. The one above has multiple velcro straps, which also makes them very customizable. They were around $25, which is a pretty good price point for the quality, in my opinion.
