Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017: Shoes

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Shoes

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here! I had a ball shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale with my friends yesterday! To be honest, I was a little leery of the Sale this year. Last year, we didn’t have much of a winter in Houston, so I didn’t get to wear very much of what I purchased. This year, I just kept it fun and only picked up what I loved, and lucky me, there were a lot of transitional pieces. Plus, once I got there, all my leeriness went away completely… Ha! Right now, it’s early access for card members only. If you want to shop the sale right now but don’t have a card, click here and sign up.

Without further ado, let’s shop the shoes! The sizing information is based on my experience. There were so many really great shoes, but here are my very favorites:

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Kate Spade Lenna

Kate Spade– I freaked out over these shoes! I love them! They are sneakers, but the tassels, the kiltie fringe, and the grey suede make them way cuter than average sneakers, am I right? Plus, they’re distinctly feminine, which I could use after my favorite “manly” looking high tops. Ha! These are going to look great with all my jeans! Sizing: Runs large; order 1/2 size down.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Treasure & Bond

Treasure & Bond– I LOVE these black flats! I have always loved the feminine look of a ballet slipper, and the dainty ankle strap takes the femininity up a notch! Sizing: True to size.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Halogen Hacorbin

Halogen– I have been searching for a pair of silver metallic shoes for the longest time. In fact, I ordered a pair last year but didn’t keep them because of the price point. Not only do I love this pair because of the price point, but I also love them because they are a mule, which makes them transitional! Sizing: True to size.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Vince Loafer

VINCE– If there is one color that is trending in the shoe department, it’s pink! How pretty are these pink loafers?!? You can pretty much wear an all neutral outfit and throw these on for a pop of color! LOVE! Sizing: Runs large; order 1/2 size down.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Sam Edelman Prentice

Sam Edelman– Last year, I realized I didn’t have a pair of black booties, so I wore the snot out of my black high tops (I know, you know. Ha!) Well, this year I will have an alternative. I am in love with these black booties. The back being down gives them an edgy, cool, effortless feel. I love the way they look with skinny jeans! Sizing: True to size.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale BP Bootie

BP– I missed out on this bootie look last year, so I was happy to see that BP is offering  this look at a reasonable price point. Sizing: Runs small; order 1/2 size up.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Steve Madden Bootie

Steve Madden– My friend tried these on, and she looked so hot in them, I had to try them on, too. I am in love with them. These will be my heel for the winter. I can wear them with jeans, pants, dresses, and skirts. Plus, they had this magical slimming and elongation effect on our legs. It’s a miracle boot! Ha! Sizing: True to size.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Kate Spade Wedge

Cole Haan – I could work a whole day in these wedges and not complain! They’re not too high, the wedge makes them sturdy, and they are so pretty! I love the sweet cross at the ankle! Sizing: True to size.

I love tennis shoes! And this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale did not disappoint!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Treasure & Bond Merrick Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Treasure & Bond Merrick

Treasure & Bond– I love these tennis shoes because they have throwback elements but are also updated! They are kinda preppy and kinda edgy at the same time. Is that even possible? HA! Sizing: True to size.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Adidas Sneaker

Adidas– I love the oyster color and white of these adidas. We’ve all seen the standard colors, so this color combination is refreshing! Sizing: Runs large; order next size down.

Nordstrom Anniversary Cole Haan Grandpro Tennis Sneaker

Cole Haan– Last year, I had a lot of people tell me that they loved my black high tops but didn’t feel comfortable wearing high tops themselves. Well, here is a great alternative! How cute are these black velvet tennis shoes?!? The laces have a leather sheen to them. Plus, they’re Cole Haan, so they’re really good quality! Sizing: True to size.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Puma Platform Sneaker

Puma– I was almost done shopping the shoes when I saw a cute girl trying on these tennis shoes, and then, of course, I HAD to have them! HAD TO! HA! Sizing: Runs large; order 1/2 size down.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Nike No Show Socks


And last but not least, MY FAVORITE NO-SHOW SOCKS are on SALE! These are the only no shows that I’ve found that don’t slide down! I love them! I bought three pairs, and I have a whole drawer full already. Ha!

That’s it for shoes! What are your favorites? I’m dying to know!




What I Wore: Colorado Recap

Colorado Recap

There is so much good stuff in this post- my new favorite top to wear with leggings, my favorite backless workout tank, and the power of a pretty white top in a wardrobe. Plus, I’ve updated the links to the items that were sold out! I had so much fun in Colorado, but it’s good to be home! Am I becoming a homebody? Ha! Oh, and thanks to all of you who followed along on Instagram. That was fun! I felt connected to you all, even while I was away!


This is what I wore on the 4th of July. It also happened to be our travel day. Can we just talk about how great of a color combination red, white and blue is? When in doubt, red, white and blue your outfit.

Outfit Links: Top – J. Crew, for similar here, Sneakers – New Balance, here and here, Earrings – Madewell, Necklace – Lulu DK, Necklace – Roberto Coin, Luggage – Rimowa, for similar here


As soon as we got to Colorado, we went on a hike. It’s a good thing I had my tennis shoes on. Truth be told, that was no mistake – I knew we would be doing some kind of activity as soon as we got there. I tried to be prepared.

Accessory Links: Earrings – Madewell, Watch – Kate Spade, Necklace – Lulu DK, Cuff – MantraBand, Sweater- Old

It felt good to get dressed for dinner after being in workout clothes most of the time. If you ask me, the accessories made this outfit.

I wore my favorite backless tank almost every day on the trip. After staring at the top of the girl working out in front of me and searching for the brand the entire workout, I finally figure out where it was from! I headed straight to the store and purchased four of these tops! They were perfect for Colorado!

Outfit Links: Top – GapFit, Sports Bra – for similar, here, Leggings – Onzie


I had another learning on this trip. When one packs for Colorado, not only do you need workout wear, but you need a backpack. There is something about going hiking while carrying a purse that doesn’t quite work. Ha!

I was so excited to get “dressed up”  and go on an “adult dinner” that I curled my hair!

This is the same outfit as the previous picture, but this picture shows the power of a pretty white top in your wardrobe. My outfit is pretty regular (jeans and sandals), but what makes this outfit is the pretty white top.

Here are a few pretty white tops:




Outfit Links: Leggings – Free People, Sneakers – Saucony, for similar here


I found the best new top for leggings! It covers both front and back! I sloppy tucked it, but it covers completely when untucked! 😉 I found it in black, and I linked it on Instagram. Then it sold out, but I found it again! Updated link below!

Outfit Links: Top – Michael Stars- (available) here and (sold out) here, Leggings – Onzie, Sports bra – Commando for similar, Sneakers – New Balance, here and here, Sunglasses – Celine, Bag – TOMS

These pics are not from Colorado, but they are from the days leading up to it. Plus, they restocked the camo leggings!!!


I am loving these camo leggings. Stay tuned for a “Everyday Twisty Hair Tutorial!”

We took my son to The Lion King for his birthday. This is what I wore. Later, we took him to play video games, so I changed into my red tennis shoes.

Outfit Links: Top – J. Crew, Shoes – M. Gemi

That’s my Colorado recap by outfits! If you all want to hear more about my trip, like recommendations, what we did in a camera roll type post, let me know. I couldn’t figure out if a post like that would be like a boring slideshow of your relative’s trip. Ha!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts this week. Let me know if you guys have any special requests!
