Shoe Roundup

I’ve got a small shrine of footwear going, so let’s talk shoes!

Isn’t it crazy how, even in your 30’s, you still identify as early 20’s? But, then you hang out with people in their early 20’s and they confirm they are no longer your people. Kids, careers and relationships bring a lot of change that we don’t see coming and we don’t recognize as it all happens. Then, before you know it, your 20 year old single-pair-of-flip-flop-wearing self turns into this 30-something with a small shoe museum.

If you knew me a  decade ago, you know my dedication to flip flops was real. All year long. Rain or shine. Sometimes tall people just want to wear short, easy shoes.

Fast forward to today, I probably get an awesome pair of shoes with every third outfit I buy.

You guys would be proud of how my shoe ambitions have evolved in variety. Maybe shoes are just the only expression our weary bodies have left by this tiring point in life. Either way, SHOES!

So on that note, I have a 2017 blogging resolution: blog all the cute things the minute I find them. I’ve rounded up some amazingly cute shoe picks and a few of them have already become instant sell outs! It’s like I have thousands extensions of me out there stalking

Enjoy these picks and, if you can’t find what you want at Nordstrom, try calling the store to double check their inventory. Also, try visiting their site from a different source (i.e. via Instagram ad) for a slighty different inventory.


These beauties are my absolute FAVES right now and they are too good not to share with an entire look. For being statement shoes, they go with almost everything!

Here are all of my current favorite picks. Clockwise from the left:

studded heels (these are flying out) | black fringe (steve madden version) | pink pumps | grey lace-ups (jeffrey campbell version) | cognac pumps (similar) | oatmeal lace-ups | crisscross sandal (order now – these are flying too runs small, I wear a 9 and size up to a 10.5)
