Yay Spring Shopping!

After a winter of shopping hibernation, I just came out of my cave a little bit. Emboldened by my easy decision to purchase the Target duffel bag that may or may not work as a gym bag (remember?) --



UPDATE: I just received this bag, and I am sorely disappointed to note that it has not silver but GREEN straps! This is an outrage. I can't have green straps. What a letdown.

-- I started clicking around the site to see what else had the tempting "free shipping with $50 purchase" tag. And, oh the cuteness I found! Here is what I scored for the grand total of $66 bucks.



Mossimo boot, can't go wrong for $14.99. I thought about getting these a while back and refrained. For fifteen bucks, I went for it, even though this is not technically a spring purchase.



Merona yellow canvas wedges. Bright color, comfortable (-looking), great with jeans, great for work: check, check, check, check. $22.99 for a piece'a that.



Exhilaration butterfly-print satchel, a steal at $13.49. I think it's pretty big, and so so so so so cute I can't stand it. There are a bunch of other cute colors and styles, so click around. Don't bite me!

Tonight I hope to get to the Atlantic Terminal Target and pick up a leaf bag for Betsy, who started me on this crazy journey. I just hope they have more than one, or I'm going to have a serious moral dilemma on my hands.

UPDATE! Success! The Brooklyn Target has oodles and oodles of the lovely leafy bag, which is sorta Orla Kieley-esque, without the Orla Kiely-esque price tag. I picked up one for myself as well, because how can you not for 17 bones? Gaze upon its loveliness:

I tried on those canvas wegdes and they definitely were the cuteness. I also wanted to get the 2nd bag you posted but my silly boyfriend made a face and spoiled it for me. It was certainly big--I was considering it as an overnight bag.
