Life’s Short – Buy the Shoes



I know, I know. Yesterday kicked off Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale, and you’re probably wondering why I’m not covering that today (or why there’s no Best of the Week either). Well, I haven’t had a chance to hit the store yet, and only quickly browsed online (which is open right now for card members), but I’ll probably get on that this weekend so you can see my top picks. HOWEVER, I did drift over to the regular items and discovered that the shoes are to die for right now. They’re cute and have good prices. I mean, $45 for those studded sandals and lace up gladiators?! You can’t beat it. The best thing is that almost all of these are on sale!

Since I’ve been trying to stay away from black shoes (funny, seeing as there’s several black pairs listed), my target has been to incorporate some color for my feet, so I’m pretty set on purchasing those coral studded sandals or the Topshop lace up’s that come in a snake-like print. Even better – I’ve been eyeing those Ivanka Trumps heels for months and now they’re only $55! I’m also obsessed with those blue, strappy sandals, but they’re a bit out of my price range… it’s still nice to look, though.

Decisions, decisions, people.

It’s been raining here in Cleveland the past few days, but tomorrow is supposed to be sunny, so I’ve got something super exciting planned! I hope you all enjoy your weekend, and let me know if there’s anything worth picking up at the sale!
