Okay, before we get into today’s post, there are couple of things I want to say.
I hadn’t originally planned this, but this week is going to be all Nordstrom again. And that’s just how it is. 😉 But I promise you it’s going to be all great stuff (I’ll give you a run down in a minute).
But next week it will be different!
Originally I had 2 Nordstrom posts scheduled for this week since it’s the last week of the sale, but then I also had my Shopping With Sheaffer: Reader’s Choice scheduled.
Well, that got bumped.
But no worries, next week you will get to go along with me to shop at Target!!!!!!
I’m going this weekend, and my idea is to put an outfit together from head to toe for $100!
It should be fun!
Next week you will also see a top that I’ve fallen in love with from
Piperlime, as well as some amazing jewelry from Accessory Concierge, and I’ll be participating in my friend’s Friday Favorites link up!
So what does this week look like?
I’m highlighting kids shoes today (but even if you don’t have a kid, make sure you read to the end of the post for some Score Report finds!)
On Wednesday it’s going to be Christmas in July!
I will highlight GREAT gift ideas found in the Anniversary Sale in case any of you want to start your Christmas shopping early.
I did this last year for the first time and got some really great feedback from y’all so I thought it made sense to do it again!
Friday is the Anniversary Sale SCORE REPORT.
It’s taken me HOURS to save all of your pics, but it’s been so much fun interacting with everybody and seeing what all of you have found!
On Friday you will get to see lots of pics (not all of them, there are just too dang many), AND the winner will be announced. I want the winner to have time to use the $250 Nordstrom card to shop while the sale is still going on! WooHoo!
But remember….at the end of today’s post you’re going to get to see some of the score reports I’ve received so far that I’ve loved!
Okay. Let’s get on with today!
Part 1 of my Kids Shoe post is HERE.
And today is Part II!
Luckily, the Anniversary Sale selection and prices makes it WAY easier.
In fact, you might even have some fun getting your kids some new kicks!
Here’s the deal, I wasn’t thinking.
We weren’t going to shop, we were just going to eat at the food court, play at the playground, and then head to the Lego store with our friends.
(Let’s just move right over that “kindergarten” word. If I think about it too long my bottom lip might start to quiver.)
Carter never really cares that much about his clothes, but he actually gets excited about a new pair of shoes! And listen, comfort is key with him. If they aren’t comfy, the little man won’t wear them.
He did make a serious mad dash for THESE babies.
They just spoke to him I guess.
Sadly, they didn’t have his size. Wink Wink.
(For the record, I totally would have bought these for him at 3. But at almost 6, I’m thinking no.)
He then saw THESE. And we both really liked them!
But they really didn’t have his size. Sigh.
With C’s help, we ended up with THESE (the same that we ended up getting for Camden, Candace’s son). I love them!
I like that grey is the base color, but the red and blue accents amp up the fun factor.
And they have veclro.
And now you get to see the precious pics Candace sent me of her boys in their new kicks! Thanks for sending them Candace!
(If you didn’t get a chance to see last weeks post about Candace, you need to make sure you do! Click HERE for a little introduction to Candace and to read about how she always keeps HOPE alive, and click HERE to follow along with us on Candace’s $1,000 shopping spree!)
Look how cute the boys are!
You can find their superhero shirts HERE (also available in pink for girls!)
Click HERE for Carson’s orange sneaks.
Click HERE for Camden’s red sneaks.
I love that he wanted to show that they “make him jump higher”! 😉 Click HERE.
Precious precious boy. Love him! Click HERE for Camden’s sneaks.
If you are interested in the shirts the boys are wearing, just wait till you read the back of them.
Brace yourself, because if you’re like me, you’re going to get all chocked up when you do.
Click HERE for this shirt.
And then wipe your eyes and clear that lump out of your throat.
And then order a shirt for any kiddos in your life that have a little super hero inside them.
I. LOVE. THIS. SHIRT.
Okay, back to the shoe post.
(Although I must say, I like the ones he ended up picking even better! The ones he chose are more big kiddish.)
They come in toddler, little kid, and big kid.
$36.90 / After Sale $54.95
I also wanted to highlight some more of the adorable kids’ shoes that you ladies have been sending in for the score report!
There’s just about TOO MUCH CUTE in these next pictures.
I mean, look at those precious faces!

And to make it easy on you, I used this handy dandy little tool to highlight many of the shoes I’ve already talked about, plus a few new ones!
BEFORE YOU GO LADIES…
Another SCORE REPORT PREVIEW!!!!!
I’m going to share a handful of pics that have caught my eye as I’ve been sorting through all of your Score Report Entries (fyi, I have over 400 pictures saved right now)!
When I saved pictures, I only saved them by category and the name of the object that was sent in.
So, I won’t be saying names because I didn’t save the names.
First up, this DARLING girl.
I might not know her name, but I do know that she is wearing the dark Kut from the Kloth dark jeans and that they look FABULOUS on her.
Best I can tell, she’s wearing THIS pair and she just cuffed them. Genius!
Click HERE for the jeans.
$52.90 / After Sale $79.50
Click HERE for all Kut items available in the anniversary sale.
Same darling reader, click HERE for her skinny cargo pants.
These are the same ones I highlighted and loved. I had to order a size up in these.
I am normally a size 5 in juniors, but the size 7 was better for me in these pants.
Click HERE for the pants.
$35.90 / After Sale $54
Another super cute reader.
She is wearing Zella work-out gear, which I hear is amazing.
I might consider getting some Zella myself if I worked out more than like 6 weeks a year. 😉
Click HERE for these UGG booties that come in this leather as well as in a water resistant suede.
$129.90 / After Sale $184.95
And look at this cute duster!
This reader said it’s the first one she’s ever purchased, but she loves it!
Hers is sold out, but they do have THIS one still. It’s brown and teal and looks really great on the model with a white tee and taupe booties!
$37.90/ After Sale $58.
And ya’ll. This next picture got me.
The sweater, the leggings, the boots.
ALL of it is just soo good. This lady knows what she’s doing!
Click HERE for the zip hem sweater that is perfect for leggings!
The detailing on this is so great!
$49.90 / After Sale $79
Click HERE for the boots!!!!!
$111.90 / After Sale $159.95
These boots have a small number of reviews, but they are all great.
Most do recommend to size up a 1/2 size.
I think these boots would look great with jeans and a tee…but I think they would look just as great with a dress! They just seem super versatile!
I’m guessing that she might be wearing THESE leggings.
And if she’s not, she should be.
801 near perfect reviews.
I wear a small in them.
That’s it for the Score Report Preview for today. You girls have found some really great stuff that I hadn’t found!
Now before you go, I want to leave you with one thing.
Look at this precious girl.
Her name is Meghan and she sent me the following e-mail this weekend:
My name is Meghan Hancock, and I am from North
Carolina. I am 22 years old, and I am in love with your blog. I am a
graduate student about to enter the “real world” as a Physician
Assistant in one year, and your blog has given me so many ideas for
developing my young, but professional business casual wardrobe. I too
was stalking this Lou and Grey dress, and when I read from your post it
was 1/2 off, I made the jump for it! I love it!! …
was so touched by your post about Candace yesterday, and my heart feels
so compelled to ask if there is anyway I can help you spoil these
inspirational moms, who are role models that I hope to live up to when I
someday have children of my own. Do you need donations? I would love to
help in anyway possible!
Have a blessed day, and keep doing what you’re doing! …
Thank you Meghan!
You are just too sweet! And Meghan is not the only one who has asked me about helping honor future special mamas. I told you, you girls who read this blog are amazing.
I love that you love to lift each other up!
So, I’m going to put my thinking cap on.
I’m all about the community that is being created here, and if we can use this blog to do some good, let’s do it!!!!!!
I’ll be trying to think of ideas, but if you have any ideas, please leave them in the comments!
Love you girls!
