Spring Shoes with Nordstrom

Sweater // Denim // Sandals // Sunglasses // Bag

The weather has been warming up, and I’ve been living for quick walks through the neighborhood (while practicing social distancing of course) and soaking up the sunshine in my backyard. Current events have given me SO much perspective.

With all the uncertainty in the world, I’ve taken to celebrating the positive. I’m enjoying the little things, like extra time to enjoy my coffee in the morning, mid-day walk breaks with my husband and pup and more time to read. I’ve also been living with the mantra that bright days ARE ahead. While we weather this storm together, remember that sunshine (both figuratively and literally) is headed our way, friends.

I’ve been appreciating the changes a new season brings more than ever before. This could be because I have way too much time on my hands to take it in. One silly little thing I LOVE about this time of year is going sock-less. Yes, I told you, totally silly, but something I usually take for granted. How glorious is it to finally be able to trade out stuffy boots and socks for bare feet and sandals?

I recently picked up some new spring shoes from Nordstrom that I’m so excited about. I’ve actually taken to wearing them around the house and for our short walk breaks through the neighborhood. Nordstrom is always the first place I look when shopping for a new season. They carry the brands I love, have new arrivals daily and free shipping and returns which makes ordering online so easy. I am also extremely impressed with their customer service and how they are handling recent events (read about their efforts here), by closing all physical stores, remaining open online and still providing an amazing customer service experience.

My favorite and most worn pair of sandals for spring and summer are my Tory Burch Miller sandals. I actually ended up snagging a new pair this year because mine were so worn! I’ve never found a more comfortable, practical flip flop that can be dressed up or down and goes with everything!

Check out some more of my recent sandal and spring shoe purchases from Nordstrom below, along with some comfy slipper picks just in case you are looking for something cozy to wear during your time at home!

Statement Boots to Elevate your Winter Wardrobe

Winter officially begins in just a few days. I think Jack Frost got the memo early, as it’s already FREEZING. I’ve been living in all the coziest layers, softest knits and statement boots. Today I am sharing my favorite winter trend piece and a head to toe look from Walmart!

Cardigan // Pullover // Similar Denim // Scarf // Shearling Fold Over Boots

I am not a fan of winter. In fact, I absolutely hate being cold! However, I AM a fan of cute winter looks! I can totally get behind a chunky sweater and scarf combo! One trend I’ve been absolutely obsessed with lately is statement boots. When I feel like my outfit is more about wearing as many layers to stay warm, and less about being cute, I love adding a statement boot! From lace up detailing to sherpa lining, a statement boot can elevate any winter outfit!

One statement boot I have been wearing NON-STOP are these shearling fold over boots from Walmart. They come in 3 colors, are under $45  and are so comfortable! I love the chunky heel, sherpa lining and the fact that I can wear them rolled up or down. They are easy to dress up and down and comfortable enough to spend all day on my feet in the classroom.

Speaking of statement boots, Walmart has some KILLER options right now! This taller version of my boots looks so designer, but with a $50 price tag. I have these hiker boots in 2 colors because I love the lace up look, the shearling detailing and the memory foam sole! A great black bootie is a must have in winter, but this pair has a subtle croc look that totally elevates it!

Speaking of on trend pieces, I always find the CUTEST at Walmart! You might have noticed that I have been loving all of the finds from Walmart lately (check out some previous posts here and here!). This year, it became one of my go to shopping destinations for refreshing my wardrobe each season!

Walmart has a huge selection of on trend pieces! I love that I can try out the seasons hottest trends without breaking the bank! Most importantly, get free delivery when you spend $35. Their Holiday Edit is packed with on trend pieces for the entire family. From holiday looks to cozy lounge pieces you can gift, Walmart has you covered! Score the cutest budget friendly options without sacrificing style!

3 Ways to Style Golden Goose Sneakers with eBay

Last year I snagged my first pair of Golden Goose sneakers after eyeing them for the longest time. I put off purchasing them for awhile because they are pretty pricey and I wasn’t sure if they would be worth it. Fast forward a year later, and I now own a few different pairs. They are super comfortable and require 0 break in time, plus they can be styled so many different ways!

While Golden Goose sneakers are worth the splurge, why wouldn’t you try and save on them when you can? Any time I’m on the hunt for designer goods, I ALWAYS check out eBay first. After playing it safe and buying pretty neutral Golden Goose sneakers, I wanted something a little flashier. I took to eBay.com to find the perfect pair and was overwhelmed by the options. There are 100s of pairs available from pre-loved to new with tags. There are also a few different ways to make your purchase. Bidding on an item can score you a great deal, but I prefer to use the buy it now feature which is quick and easy.

When it comes to shopping eBay, there are a few tips and tricks I always use!

  1. When shopping for a specific item, either copy the exact title of the item you are looking for or describe it in as much detail as possible. This will give you the best chance for pulling up the exact item!
  2. If you are purchasing something but are unsure if it will fit, make sure the seller accepts returns. Not all sellers do, so noting this ensures that you will be able to return your purchase if it doesn’t work out!
  3. Check the daily deals section daily! They offer some of the best deals on anything and everything with free shipping!
  4. If you’re looking for a designer bag or accessory, make sure to check for the authenticity verified tag. The authenticity of the item is checked by an expert and guaranteed by eBay so you can shop with confidence.
  5. eBay runs special shopping events frequently! The current special event is select Adidas apparel on sale for 75-80% off and runs until 9/4!

Summer to Fall Mules

Mules are BY FAR my favorite type of shoe to wear! I think they are so easy and effortless and love that I can take them from work to the weekend!

Today I am rounding up some of my current favorites, from neutrals to options topped off with a bow!
