Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: best women’s shoes!!

Let's be real, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is, hands down, the very best time to snag a new pair (or two or three) of shoes!! As I've been browsing (and shopping) all the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale shoes I've basically started counting down to the first day of fall, because “Hello, booties!!” Luckily I was also able to find some awesome mules and sneakers to enjoy right now in warmer weather. I tried on TONS of pairs, and these are truly the best and my favorite of the sale!

Lightweight cardigan

This lightweight cardigan comes in 8 colors and is a steal at $39.90! Normally $70, this cardi is so versatile and cozy! It's the perfect transition piece as we (hopefully) start coming up on some cooler evenings!

Crossbody purse

This is one of the most affordable (yet still designer!) bags in the Sale this year! It's only $150 and it's the perfect size if you don't want (or need to!) lug around a big diaper bag everywhere you go. It's sold out in white right now, but here's the same bag in black and red.

Cropped fit jeans

I just really love LOVE these jeans! They made it into my ultimate Anniversary Sale Denim Guide, and I'm obsessed with how they look with booties! The cropped fit is a fresh take on traditional denim and works perfectly to transition from summer to fall. Plus this designer denim is 33% off at $146.90 (normally $220!) so now is definitely the time to buy!

This is my FAVE tee of the Anniversary Sale! It's so inexpensive (only $15.90!) and comes in several cute colors. It's the perfect layering piece, so easy to front tuck, and suuuuper soft.

THE snakeskin booties

There are actually TWO snakeskin booties in the Anniversary Sale this year, but after trying them both on, THIS Snake Print Bootie was the clear winner! They are so comfortable, the leather feels softer, there's fun silver detailing on the back, AND I like the print better! I always feel a little bit more dressed up when I'm wearing a bit of a heel, and this block heel is seriously perfect. These are only $89.90 (!!) right now, but will be back up to $135 after the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

Leather mule

These leather mules are ultra-comfortable! They will be your go-to shoe for months. I can't believe how affordable you can get them too! They are only $44.90 ($80 after the sale!), which is almost HALF OFF retail!

Pointed toe mule

These pointed toe mules come in FIVE colors, and honestly, it was hard to choose which one to buy! I am just SO HERE for the mule trend: easy, chic, comfy, done! These are currently only $49.90 but will be back up to their retail price of $90 after the sale! (PS you CAN indeed wear white shoes after Labor Day.)

White sneaker

This lace-up sneaker is so lightweight it literally feels like you're not wearing anything! When I was shopping for shoes, the girl who was helping me showed me these because she was still in awe over how weightless they are! To say I'm obsessed is an understatement. Not only are these so comfortable, they go with everything and the feminine scalloped detailing is just too cute! Wear them with a dress, jeans, leggings, anything; for only $69.60 (Orig. $130!!) you seriously can't go wrong.
