As of 12AM PST this morning, Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here! If you’re a Nordstrom Card Holder (like me! 👏), this means you can log into*  and start shopping immediately. If you’re a non Card Holder, as  of today you can log in and start adding items to your Wish List (click the box below ‘Add to Bag’ on each product page that says ‘Add to Wish List’). Non Card Holders won’t be able to purchase NSale items until Friday July 21st, but already having the items you want on your Wish List will give you a huge advantage, as sale quantities are so limited.


For my first 2017 #NSALE series post (see all posts in the series here), I’m sharing my 8 favorite over the knee suede boots included in the Anniversary shopping event. Effortlessly sexy and extremely dramatic, over the knee suede boots one-hundred-percent take the cake when it comes to outfit-making footwear. Neither stilettos nor red soles compare in terms of the drama and functionality of OTK suede boots, which is why they were the first items to sell out during last year’s NSale, not to mention the most popular items on my site during the Anniversary Sale last year. Similar to a little black dress in terms of versatility and price per wear, over the knee suede boots are one of the best essentials you can add to your wardrobe.

As intimidating and ‘for-models-only’ as they may look, over the knee suede boots look as amazing with a classic pencil skirt and crisp button-down as they do with denim. See my past post on 35 ways to wear over the knee boots in real life for tried-and-true examples. The pro style tip to remember is: when your shoes make major impact, keep all other parts of your outfit as simple as possible. These boots have no competition, so allow them to take center stage and you’re all set.
