Happy Weekend! With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in full swing, I wanted to pop in and share some of my favorite shoes of the sale. When pulling this list, I looked for classic styles and colors, with a few styles I think are making a comeback like the mule and slides.
Booties are always a fan favorite and with good reason! You can pretty much wear booties year round! I style mine in the fall with jeans and plaids or tees and long sleeve dresses, in winter with jeans and cardigans and sweaters, in spring with dresses and jeans, and in summer with dresses, and shorts. I tend to gravitate to the brown shades, but I purchased the gray pair this year because you know gray obsessed over here.
Mules have slowly been working their way back onto the shoe scene I personally LOVE them!! I own several different styles from heels to block heels to wedges. For this sale, I picked up the gray pair. I love wearing them with cuffed jeans or dresses. Slides are also increasing in popularity. I keep thinking it’s like an adult flip flop. 🙂 I love being able to easily kick off my shoes at work or when visiting a friends house, and both of these shoe styles give me that option.
If you are looking for a comfy classic black heel, these Charles David heels are perfect for you! I owned a pair previously and wore them so much because they were so comfy and had a professional look.
Alright ya’ll enjoy the rest of your weekend and be sure to leave me some comments letting me know what you purchased from the sale this year!!
SHOP THE SHOES
Hello and Happy Friday!! So for all my Nordstrom Cardholders, how did early access day one go for you?? I scored some AMAZING pieces this year. I can’t wait to style them on the blog. If you are an Instagram user, I shared a quick try on session on stories. I will also be sharing them here on the blog soon, so stay tuned! If you missed it, I shared some of my top picks of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in yesterday’s post. You can check it out HERE.
Now let’s take a sale talk break and talk about this gorgeous yellow floral top. I love the feminine look of this top with the floral design and ruffle details. I have a few sleeveless high neck tops like this and love wearing them for summer. They work with skinny jeans and shorts for the weekend, and this top style also works or work with skinny ankle pants for tucked into a pencil skirt. Side Note on this top, it does have some open crochet panels on it, so you will need to wear a cami underneath it.
Alright ya’ll, have a great weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!

BOOTIES & BOOTS
JACKETS & COATS
Hello!! A little black dress or LBD for short is a staple in any woman’s closet. It’s a dress you can quickly grab for the office, date night, a cocktail event, or a wedding. I have several LBDs for various types of occasions. But today, we are talking about the other dress I think every woman should have one of – the little red dress.
I love wearing the color red. It’s a bold, statement making color, and pairs well with everything. Add red to a fitted dress, and you have an instant girlboss look. Red is such a power color and can give any woman a quick boost of confidence. A little red dress is perfect for an important meeting, date night, and cocktail events. Basically, everywhere you would were a LBD, you can wear a LRD.
This dress in particular I love because the simple silhouette paired with the bold red makes it work for a variety of engagements. The cap sleeve, midi look will work in the office, while the body con fit makes this dress work for cocktail events and date night. For the sizing on this one, I’m wearing a US4 which fits like a normal 2, and I did have it altered taking the hem up about 2 inches.
Alright ya’ll, we are just a few short days away from the start of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Obviously, I’m a huge Nordstrom shopper and love shopping this sale! I also love helping you navigate the sale and find everything you are looking for. I’m planning to create a few more sale round up posts this year throughout the sale. If you have a minute, I would love if you could fill out my short survey below, so that I can create the sale guides that will best serve what you are shopping for this year.
