5 Fall Shoes to Carry You Through the Season

I was chatting with a friend, discussing fall shoes, and she asked what shoes she “needed” for the fall/winter. That got me thinking, what are the main shoe trends for the fall? What would I recommend a client buy for this season? What have I purchased this season? Well, it didn’t take long for me to figure it out -ha! I have five main categories, and depending on your lifestyle, you might need a couple of pairs from one section vs. the other. Or you may find that you already have a pair from four out of the five categories! Regardless, I’m sharing my favorites from each category that I’ve found while shopping at Nordstrom!

1. CASUAL EVERYDAY BOOTIES:

There are fun booties everywhere at Nordstrom! They are all so darling, but I’m drawn to the classic ones.

Here are my picks:

Booties (Splurge)

I like both of these booties because they are classic and don’t have any embellishments that will date them after one season, but I am in love with the first pair! I love the price point, and they are so comfortable! I also like that you can see the ankle, because it’s more flattering. I also like all the colors this bootie comes in! They remind me of this pair from last season that I recommended because everyone looks so good in them.

 

2. SNEAKERS AND ATHLETIC SHOES:

Wow, is the athletic shoe trend here in a big way or what?! Well, you know I’m happy to participate! Whether you like high tops or an athletic sneaker, you can’t go wrong!

Here are my picks:

3. A HEELED BOOT/BOOTIE

A boot to give you height and to dress you up a bit. This is the boot you wear with your dresses to work or church, or that you can wear with jeans when you want to dress up a bit.

Here are my picks:

4. A HEELED DRESS SHOE: 

This is the shoe that you wear when you are getting dressed up (obviously -ha!)! There is nothing casual about this shoe. These are great for when you need a date night shoe or a work shoe, or sometimes you can combine the two… or you may need a couple from this section-ha!

Here are my picks:

5. A PRACTICAL, CASUAL, WARM WINTER BOOT:

For the times when you are casual and you just want to be comfy. You know, the leggings, jeans, and pj times.

Here are my picks:

PHEW! Sorry for the long post, there were too many really great fall shoes to choose from in each category. I wanted to take the time to give you guys my very favorite options from each category. Sorry, it got a little lengthy. I know you skimmed, I would have -ha! But I hope there was a shoe that caught your eye! We’ll just blame it on Nordstrom for having too many cute shoes!

Happy fall shoe shopping!

Labor Day Sales: My Picks

Nordstrom is having their Summer Clearance Sale. Save up to 40%.

My Favorites:

 

Supergoop! is 20% off through 9/8, use code sg!365

This my favorite sunscreen and my kids, too! They request it. We just ran out of our Supergoop from the summer. This is the perfect chance for me to restock! Long story short, it’s weightless, not too smelly, and it’s void of “controversial ingredients”.  Supergoop! is 20% off through 9/8, use code sg!365

Anthropologie is offering an extra 25-40% on sale items.

My Favorites:

Club Monoco is offering 40% off through 9/5, use code FAREWELLSUMMER.

My Favorites:

Williams Sonoma is offering up to 75% off clearance items, use code SUMMER. They also have a 20% discount on non-clearance items, use code LABORDAY.

If you are like me, the start of the school year has you “recommitted” to cooking week night meals. Ask me in a month and this commitment will have fizzled. Ha! Well, I’ve noticed that there are a few things I could replace (hello, non-stick pan with the black stuff coming off), so I’ve got my eye on these. I’ve been eyeing this paper towel dispenser, and now it’s 20% off! Yay! This would also be a great time to buy a Vitamix.
