The Nordstrom Half-Yearly is a great time to buy holiday gifts or add a few discounted pieces to your closet.  For me, a sale like this is all about the shoes.  Because, unlike clothes, I really maximize cost-per-wear with my shoes.  Here are a few of my favorites from this year’s sale.

Boots.  So many good boots at this sale.  These Via Spiga boots are a great tall boot to wear to the office with tights and a pencil skirt.  And I love the rich, dark color of these Enzo boots.

Also found at the sale, these cognac Coach Mysie boots with just the right amount of prep, and these under-$150 Franco Sarto boots in black or taupe suede.

Pumps.  How amazing are these Charles David modern-Mary Janes?  I love them in the red, but they also come in beige and black.  And the Caswell pumps would look awesome with a skirt, under pants or with denim.

The Charles David Pact pump in textured burgundy leather also caught my eye, as did this $87 Sam Edelman pump with a black-on-black toe cap.  I bought these LK Bennett Shilo pumps in a nude-to-me color for spring.  They also come in this saucy cranberry color.  But the best deal in the sale in this under-$100 Charles David pointed toe pump.

Flats.  I have been looking at these sparkly D’orsay flats for months, and the sale finally convinced me to pull the trigger.  I think they’ll be adorable with jeans on dry-weather days, or with a casual dress in the early spring.

There are a lot of great flat shoes in the sale.  I’d start with these Nine West ‘Cool Dude’ Flats in red or blue patent leather.  Then, I’d go for these Isola Britt flats in a versatile tortoise-shell (smashing with black pants).  And lastly, I would not miss these under-$100 pointed-toe basic black flats from Ivanka Trump.

The Crowdstrike/Microsoft Meltdown forced me to take a few days off this weekend. No laptop. No billable hours. So we packed Sloane up for a visit to a local llama farm, stopped by the pool, went for coffee, etc. Few things are as funny as watching a 23-month old feed carrots to a ravenous rescue […]

Yes, it’s July 22nd, but there is a lot of living to do between now and the cooler weather. And given that three-digit temperatures are becoming shockingly common, you need something light. Enter the striped linen set. Wear it now, wear it next summer.
