Nordstrom Kids' Fall/Winter Shoe Favorites

I hope y'all enjoyed yesterday's post on my favorite picks for kids' Spring and Summer shoes from Nordstrom.  Today I'm bringing you my favorites for Fall and Winter.  I know the colder weather is finally behind most of us but it may be time to stock up on some favorites, since many kids' shoes are currently on sale at Nordstrom for a limited time.
Each Fall I buy a pair of New Balance Shoes for each of the kids.  Cannot say enough about the quality of these shoes.  Love that they're velcro too.  As a mother of four, anything to make getting out the door in the morning just a little quicker is a huge plus.  And I'm seriously hoping the girls pick these new fuchsia ones this Fall.
And clearly their New Balances have been worn well this year...even surviving a week at Disney without a single complaint about their feet hurting.

In the Winter I usually get them a pair of fun boots.  This year it was these Minnetonkas (currently on sale).  I actually loved them so much that I ended up getting myself a pair in brown here.  But if you lean more toward Uggs for your kiddos, many are on sale right now too.  Never too soon to be thinking about Christmas, right?
On rain boots...as far as Hunter Rain Boots go for the kids, I love them!  Y'all know how much wear I get out of mine.  While they're so cute I usually like to snag them when they're on sale.
And since they didn't have a sale on them when E needed a new pair, I ended up getting her these ladybug boots.
Well, if you're like me and have been waiting for Kids Hunter Boots to go on sale, you're in luck!
They're currently on sale now at Nordstrom.  The color block ones above are super cute and original!

Fun Fact:  I'm not sure if you knew this about Nordstrom, and it may only be at participating locations, but if you bring your chid in to Nordstrom and tell them you're wanting to buy their first pair of shoes, they'll do all these cute little things for your baby.  I think one thing is they give him/her a stuffed animal.  My sister just told me this a couple of weeks ago and I had no idea!  If only I'd known I'd have done it with all of mine when they were little!  Please let me know if you try this with your baby at your local Nordstrom.  Just another reason Nordstrom is such a great place to shop!

Tuesday Trends: Nordstrom Kids' Spring/Summer Shoe Favorites

It's no secret that I love finding great shoes for my children.  Y'all know by now that Nordstrom is generally where I turn to stock up.  With free shipping and free returns, I can always order a size or two and then send back the ones that don't fit.  Love that about their awesome customer service!

For me I always aim to find kids' shoes that can withstand a school year at least (given the fact that their feet don't grow too fast).  I usually purchase the same basic style each year and let them choose the color.  That way I know what kind of quality and fit they're getting and they're happy with picking a fun color.
In the Spring, I stock up on Crocs for the pool and outings, and sandals for other events and church.
If your child is more of a flip-flop fan these Havaianas in an animal print are on sale and they even have them in these Disney ones.  I know the boys would be all over these camo Crocs.
Saltwater Sandals have always been my go-to ever since W was little.  They're super comfortable and can even be sprayed clean since they're water-resistant.  Huge plus in my book!
The girls already have their gold ones ready to go for this year.  They broke them in this past Sunday. I didn't get a chance to order little L's Sperry Topsiders yet, but I will soon.

Nordstrom has a great selection of fun sandals that can match their mama's this year too.
These little Sam Edelman Gia Sandals are so cute!

Happy Tuesday!

Easter


I hope y'all had a wonderful Easter weekend.  It poured on Saturday but was pretty and sunny on Sunday.  So thankful for that!
We went to my parents' for lunch and dinner on Easter and some of my sisters came in town with their kiddos.  Unfortunately, Sister #5 couldn't make it.  But she's got some excitement coming into her life soon.  Her little son is due any day!!
W and W (cousins)
Hanging out while the children rode their scooters and carts in the driveway.
Remember, my Tory Burch Metallic Gold Miller Sandals are on sale during Saks' Friends and Family Event.  They're true to size.  I wear an 8.5 in these and an 8.5 in Jack Rogers.
Enter code: FRNFAM at check-out to take 25% off, plus free shipping with code: FREESHIP.
Also on sale at Nordstrom here!

FYI, while this exact color isn't available anymore, the J.Crew Camille Dresses available in Poppy and Black are marked down to $59.99 with code: GOSHOP at check-out.  I also own the black one as well and love the classic shape of it.  A perfect little black dress.  The white floral necklace is from J.Crew last summer and my earrings are these Kate Spade ones, currently on sale during Saks' Sale Event.  The perfect dainty little neutral studs.

Hope y'all have a great start to your week!

Saks Sale Starts Today + Lilly Pulitzer Buttercup Shorts

 

The Saks Friends & Family Sale Starts Today!
Shop early for the best selections.  Mother's Day is right around the corner, right?

Because my Lilly Pulitzer Buttercup Shorts that I wore this morning to an Easter Egg Hunt were such a hit with Instagram followers' comments, I thought I'd let you know they're currently on sale for 25% off during Saks' Friends & Family Event.  Same style, very similar print.  I paired mine this morning with these Lipstick Pink Hunter Rain Boots (also currently 25% off) and this top, very similar to the one I'm wearing in the photo above.  The one I'm wearing is a few years old from Lilly Pulitzer called the Vivi.
J.Crew Vintage Cotton Top (old, similar here) // J.Crew Factory Necklace (old, similar here) // Essie Bottle Service // Essie Fiji // Chanel Mademoiselle // Jack Rogers Nantucket Sandals // Lilly Pulitzer Buttercup Shorts (same style, similar print here)
<above photo is a previous OOTD>

For sizing reference, I'm between a 4/6 and wear a 6 in these.  I don't like them too fitted and a little lower on my hips.  The shorts appear very short on the model online, but she's 5'11" and these actually have a 4" inseam.  I'm 5'6".  Saks also always offers free shipping too.  I actually just ordered this pair as well.  Can't turn down a good Lilly sale.

Take 25% off with code: FRNFAM at checkout.
Enter code: FREESHIP to get free shipping.
Both codes can be entered together.

Happy Saturday!

Fashion Friday: Whereabouts + Loving Lately


On Wednesday we met up with a friend and her children at The Nature Museum.
We had the best time.  She looks like she could be their babysitter and is expecting her THIRD!  Little V was especially fond of her and kept bringing her toys and books and wanting to sit in her lap, not mine.
W loved looking at the chrysalis and explaining how they weren't cocoons.
Searching for butterflies.
Afterwards I took the kiddos out to lunch.  We're still enjoying Spring Break this week!
 On Wednesday night we went out with friends to watch the last Bobcats regular season game.
They won in overtime!
I know I blog about how much I love these but they sell out so fast during sales that when I see them on sale I want to give y'all a heads up as soon as I can.  They're currently marked down at Nordstrom for a limited time, from $170 to $127.

Plum Pretty Sugar just came out with a line called Pom Pon.
How gorgeous are these prints?
They're priced just right too.  The ones above are only $37!
I'm loving these boyfriend shirts too.

My new favorite sandals // Koolaburra Fringe Sandals // J Brand Cutoffs
 My new favorite bracelet // Jacinthe Bracelet
 I hope y'all have a wonderful Easter weekend.  Unfortunately it may rain tomorrow.  I sure hope it holds off for a fun Easter Egg Hunt we are supposed to attend.  Hope y'all have better weather wherever you're celebrating.
