Last week, I had a chance to pop into Nordstrom and try a few things on. As promised, I’ve got some reviews for you, live from the dressing room at Nordstrom. So grab a cup of coffee, get comfy on the couch, and let’s go shopping!
On the hunt for a comfortable pair of everyday shoes, I tried on a few hot sellers, from Paul Green.
I love the ‘Cayenne‘ peep toe spring bootie.
I’ve heard great reviews from readers, and my sales guy at Nordies claims it his #1 selling shoe!
Comfortable and super flattering, especially in the cognac color (and I love the pewter, above, on my friend Michelle). If I had an unlimited shoe budget, I would own this shoe in at least 2 colors, but for me, this shoe is too similar to my Vince Camuto ‘Evel’ sandal (HERE),
so I asked for the ‘Winston’ mule.
This is one FABULOUS shoe!
If you are in the market for a mule, this pair is soo comfortable (and many are not).
I love a mule with crop pants.
BTW, rolled up flares,as above, are NOT a new trend.
I was ready to take ‘Winston’ home with me, until I tried on ‘Hana’.
Tough call, as I loved all 3 of these shoes – for different reasons.
Like any smart shopper, I dialed up a friend for a 2nd opinion, and after much deliberation, ‘Hana’ came home with me.
I had a chance to wear my new kicks yesterday,
with this DIY chambray jumpsuit look. I was inspired to try this look, after seeing a similar look on one of my fave style bloggers,
Ann Krembs of Kremb de la Kremb, HERE.
(check out her style blog, I love Ann’s easy, everyday style, and flair!)
Before we more onto denim, I have a few other fab sandals to share!
Remember the Vince Camuto ‘Lavette’, featured in this Ask Suzanne Bell shoe post, HERE?
Priced $119.95, I’m loving this taupe color (Cashmere), on my other Michelle!
Looking for the perfect pair, to stroll around Europe this summer?
Eileen Fisher ‘Sport’ Platform sandal, available in 5 colors!

After shoes, I hit the denim department – to try on a few cropped flare jeans.
High-rise slim flare crop. Ran true to size. Note, the flare on the Jodi, is a barely-there-flare.
Rag and Bone High Rise Crop Flare
EEK! This pair looked so scary on me, but I wanted to share, so you can see for yourself. WAAAY to see thru, tight on the knees, and BRIGHT white – didn’t work for me at all. A pass.
I think the ‘Cropped Straight’ from Current Elliot or ‘The Kick‘ might be a better fit and not so see thru, if this jean doesn’t work for you either.
Hudson ‘Mia’ Crop Flare, Carve Wash.
These are a weird length (too long), and the hem is cut uneven – not in a good way.
But since I liked everything else about the ‘Mia’, I purchased the same cut in a darker wash (not available online), and had alterations hem them (below).
I think this jean needs to be the right length – showing off some leg and shoe, in order to be flattering. I had the length hemmed to right below my calf (about an inch shorter than here). I will be picking them up next week, so stay tuned.
So Ladies, I have much more to share – blazers and fun tops, but I’m out of time for today. Pop back on Wednesday, for Part #2 of my Nordstrom Reviews. I’ll be sure to share my newly altered jeans as well, so you can see if these are for you, or not.
And, a very Happy Mother’s Day wish to all the Mom’s out there, who work so hard everyday, for everyone – I hope you carve a little time out for yourself this weekend – you deserve it!
Have a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Great shoes & jeans! I love the Winston mules.
Andrea’s Wellness Notes
Me too. It was a really hard decision for me. I loved a 3 pairs equally for different reasons. I went with the platform as I can wear in in lieu of my higher wedges for shopping, lunching, work and still be comfortable. I wore them all day with this chambray look and even around the house (I usually kick off my shoes the minute I walk in the door) as they were so comfortable! Happy Mothers Day Andrea! xx

This was a super post to read! I liked all 3 shoes so I don’t know how you were able to choose! And your DIY denim/chambray jumpsuit is so adorable. That top is just too fabulous! (Isn’t Ann fantastic?! She is one of my fave bloggers as well!)
Oh yes, how I love Ann’s style! Such an inspiration! I really had a hard time, I really wanted all 3 pairs! Ah, a girl can dream, right? Thanks for dropping a comment!
