Happy Monday. But question…why is it always Monday and where did my weekend go? Thankfully I have a day off this weekend and I’m getting a much needed massage. August is going to be super busy for me, so I’m trying to get as much sleep as possible. I have no idea how I used to pull all nighters in pharmacy school ;) I’m rambling, but I wanted to share the best of the #nsale shoes.

Confession: I ordered 9 pairs of shoes from the Nordstrom sale. NINE. 9. You read that right. I did know however, that I probably wasn’t going to keep all of them. TIP: before I shopped the Nordstrom sale shoe section, I assessed what I already had in my closet and what I needed for fall. As you know, I’ve been so busy the last few years with school. I’ve moved several times and I still don’t have everything organized like I want it. I’ve given away a lot of shoes, clothes, etc. I finally narrowed it down that I needed a pair of brown booties and a pair of black booties for sure. I know that your newsfeeds are blowing up with #nsale information, but I choose to order from Nordstrom for several reasons. I don’t have to pay tax or shipping and their return policy is amazing! They have great customer service that is always willing and able to help me out if I need it.

Here’s what I kept:

nsale, shoes, booties, loafers, leopard, nordstrom

These black booties are super comfortable. I also love them, because they aren’t boring. The perforations add just enough flair to a bootie that is a must-have for fall. I can see myself wearing these daily this fall!

I had my fingers crossed about these brown booties (above), and I got so so lucky. The stitching adds the right amount of flair. I also love the distressing on the toe. They look worn in without looking dirty, if that makes sense. You’re not going to find me in a high heel bootie, so these are perfect.

Trust me, I’m sure you’ve seen 9283094 bloggers in these leopard loafers (above) already. Question: are they worth it? Yes. Are they really that good? Yes. Leopard is my favorite neutral, and these are comfortable enough to wear to work all day.

And in keeping with the loafer trend, I decided to opt for this suede pair. I have been wanting to try a pair of Kristin Cavallari shoes for a while, and I finally got my chance. These are like butter. The leather is so soft and supple. I am obsessed with these so much that I told my BFF and she ordered them, too ;)

Now for the best news? These are all under $100. Your closet and your wallet will thank you! As I wear these shoes this fall, I will be sure to share photos with you on Instagram. Be sure to check out my post on basics for fall from the #nsale!

A couple of housekeeping items: I’ve added a Nordstrom sale tab here if you want to see the best of the entire sale. I’ve also added a section of Arkansas recommendations that includes eat, primp, and stay. Be sure to check it out!

Thanks for reading & let me know if you have any questions or blog post ideas!




Happy first day of the #nsale open to the public! I’ve tried not to blow your phones, laptops, tablets, and desktops up with too many posts on the topic. I know you’ve heard about it by now. One thing I’m noticing though is we need more bloggers talking about the curvy section of the sale! That’s what I’m here for! I want to share nineteen curvy fall basics under $100 that are perfect for the upcoming (and hopefully soon) cooler weather.

If there’s one thing you can never have too many of, it’s a good basic tee. Luckily, the sale delivered well in this category. I snagged all of these pictured here, but the striped tee on the far right is my fave. It’s super soft & comfy.

My number one fave purchase is this sleeveless olive tunic! I am obsessed with it. I can see it paired with a pair of jeans and a cozy cardigan. The cowl neck is perfect!

The sweatshirt vest in the middle of the third row is a close second as to what I purchased from the sale. It’s the softest ever! It will look super cute with a striped long sleeved tee underneath. I love how long it is, so you can wear it will leggings if you so desire!

The jeans on the far left are my favorite jean purchase. The slit in the knee gives the right amount of flair to this pair. These are from SLINK, and the fit is amazing. They hug you in all the right places and are super flattering.

I’ve heard some really good things about the Zella leggings (bottom row far right), so I’ve ordered them as well. They are high-waisted and apparently suck you in. I can’t wait to share my thoughts. I also love these burgundy skinnies!

If you’re looking for other items, I have a dedicated #nsale page here.
