Now that I’ve done the roundup of my dressing room selfies from shopping Early Access at Nordstrom last week, I wanted to deep dive into certain categories to share my very favorites! Today I thought I’d focus on boots and other shoes, because unlike sweaters and coats, they are items you can style early in the season… some you can even wear right now! Below are five pairs of shoes and boots from the Anniversary Sale that you absolutely cannot miss:
BEST SHOE STYLES IN THE ANNIVERSARY SALE
the trend piece
Ok, I know these snakeskin print boots are a little wild… but I’m obsessed! I’ve been talking a lot about snakeskin ahead of this sale, and it’s definitely the biggest print trend I’ve seen this season. These boots feature a leg-elongating pointed toe (my fave!), and the shaft hits me at the skinniest part of my leg, therefore making them the MOST flattering style! They’re also really comfortable, thanks to the sturdy block heel. The best part about these beauties? They’re under $100! Such a great price for a trend piece like this. I have a similar printed pair by Alexander Wang I wear a lot (styled here and here for reference), so I know these are going to be useful this fall/winter. PS: These boots run big – I normally wear a 9 1/2 and bought these in a 9!
the feminine flat
If you’re in need of a stylish flat for work or travel, definitely don’t miss this sophisticated scalloped pair! I thought the black pair looked so pretty on my feet, however I just didn’t need to buy another pair of black flats – I have too many pairs as it is! I also really love the praline color, and am considering ordering them online to try. These shoes run on the big/wide side, so size down a half size! Also, these flats are only $69.90 during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale… they go back up to $109.95 on August 4th!
the everyday boot
The other pair of shoes I snagged during the sale is this chic pair of Vince ankle boots! I actually got mine in camel suede, but it looks like now they only have the black leather style left. I’ll keep an eye on them and let you know if the suede options come back in stock! Love the notched topline – it’s a stylish accent that instantly elevates this everyday bootie. Vince is one of my very favorite high-quality contemporary brands, and their pieces are always built to last. Highly recommend investing in these boots like I did! If you want to copy my camel suede boots for less, don’t miss this Sam Edelman pair – they’re more affordable (under $100!) and look very similar!
the transitional mule
These simple cognac mules are the definition of a transitional staple! They look just as cute with jean shorts and lightweight dresses for summer as they do with jeans and sweaters heading into fall. They’re on sale for only $54.90 and also come in black! These fit true to size and are super, super comfy.
the comfy sneaker
Whether you need these for everyday activities and errands or plan to trot the globe in them, these comfy sneakers are about to be your go-to. This is actually a style Meghan Markle owns herself! See her in them here. I didn’t try these on myself, but every review says to size down! These great sneakers are on sale for $59.90, but will go back up to $80 at the end of the Anniversary Sale.
