I Found the Chicest Dresses at Nordstrom and the Shoes to Pair With Them

I can never seem to find the right outfits at the right time. I’ll stumble across a gorgeous summer dress, perfect for a soirée out East, and just as I’m about to purchase it, I realize it’s the dead of winter and I have no parties to wear it to. Naturally, when summer heats up and I do have an event I’m shopping for, I can’t find anything I would even consider trying on. Don’t even get me started on trying to find shoes to match the dress that I finally settled for. Thus the dilemma of the chicken or the egg becomes the outfit or the event. And, of course, it’s a problem that only online shopping can fix.

The solution: preparation. I tasked myself with finding the chicest outfits for every occasion so that next time I have an event I need a dress for, I have the perfect silhouette on hand with shoes to match. For assistance on this undertaking, I turned to the trusty retailer that never disappoints and always seems to have something for everything: Nordstrom. Whether it be a floral, flowy sundress paired with strappy sandals or a ribbed-knit midi with ankle boots, never be without a fabulous dress and killer shoes for any occasion ever again. To top it all off, many of these options are relatively affordable, so you may find yourself adding multiple to your cart. Buy an outfit now for an event or use this as a guide when future functions arise. Style comes with availability and accessibility at Nordstrom. So keep on scrolling through to find all of the chicest outfits that you won’t be able to resist.
