My Aunt Is 54 and Works In Fashion—We Both Lost It Over These 29 Nordstrom Shoes

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: My aunt is one of my biggest style inspirations. In my 28 years as her niece, I've never seen her looking anything short of ultra-chic and pulled-together, so it should come as no surprise when I tell you that it's basically her job to help people find their personal style. Practically everyone in our family goes to her for style advice (myself included), and since we both work in fashion now, I'm constantly texting her about everything from the coolest trends to know to what I'm considering buying.

Of course, she's just as much of an avid shopper as I am, so when I'm not going to her for style inspiration, I'm picking her brain on what cool finds she's currently eyeing. Surprise, surprise—we're both big Nordstrom shoppers (our whole family is, really), so I already knew that my aunt's spring shopping list was Nordstrom-heavy when I recently texted her to ask about what she loves for the season. We chatted about the spring runway trends we both like until the conversation turned into one big obsession over new spring shoes. If you glanced at our text messages, you'd see a series of links to the best Nordstrom shoes for the season.

Instead of keeping them to myself, I'm dishing on all the prettiest Nordstrom shoes that my aunt and I are both losing our minds over right now. Ahead are 29 perfect pairs.

Talk about a showstopper. We're both losing our minds over these celeb-adored It shoes.

Chic, summery, and under $70. What's not to love?

Tomato red is the color of the season, and these shoes are an easy way to add a pop of red to your outfit.

Nordstrom is overflowing with pieces from Tory Burch's new era, and these beautiful sandals might be my favorite pick of the moment.

I also sent this similar pair to my aunt because I know she appreciates staples with a little something extra to them.

We're both so into retro sneakers right now.

We both can't help ourselves when we come across a cool affordable find, and these look anything but.

Details like the toe shape and wearable heel height help make this pair stand out to us.

My aunt isn't much of a ballet-flats person—unlike me. But we both agreed this pretty pair is special.

My aunt is just as excited about the return of wedge sandals as I am, so I knew she'd be into this modern take.

If we're talking dream shoes, both of us are after Khaite's Western ankle boots.

Calling it now: These will be sold out before summer even arrives.

I sent these to my aunt as part of my Nordstrom wish list. I think they're so versatile and timeless.

Meanwhile, she replied the gold pair is more her speed, and I couldn't agree more. These will be ideal for all the weddings and summer events she has coming up.

When we chatted about spring trends last month, my aunt was all about avocado green, and these mules just might be the easiest way to wear it.

It takes a lot for a pair of flats to excite my aunt, but I have a feeling these are strong contenders.

If we're talking boots, nothing is chicer than these sleek stilettos.

The puffy straps make them both on-trend and ultra-comfortable.

Lug-sole loafers are the one flat shoe style my aunt approves of, so let's hear it for this $100 find. 

The shape of this heel is something else.

Like I mentioned, my aunt is allergic to basics that are too plain, which is why I know she'd be into these Tory Burch classics.

Sam Edelman is the Nordstrom brand we both turn to for trendier buys.

Next up, I just found a trove of cool and easy outfits to wear with sandals all spring and summer.
