October has been an ultra demanding month of #MomLife, but I finally found some time for myself to jump into fun fall trends with Neiman Marcus! My friend Dana invited me to a brunch for bloggers at the Short Hills location, and it was honestly the first time I’ve been able to shop alone in what felt like forever.
We were given a private tour of the styling suite, including a sneak peek at the AMAZING shoe salon and the Chanel boutique! After a yummy brunch from the NM Cafe and previewing looks from Alice and Olivia, Tom Ford, YSL and Rebecca Minkoff, I circled right back to the shoes. There’s a fantastic mix of high and low brands, and I snagged these grey suede platform sneakers from Vince! I’ve been needing a new everyday shoe, and the heel is the perfect height for commuting. I can dress them up or down and they pass the #momlife test — aka hiding the scuffs from toddler feet / stroller wheels.
Moral of the story? If you haven’t shopped alone without a baby / kids / husband in a while, GO. And if you’re in NJ, definitely head to Neiman Marcus at Short Hills! I recommend splurging on the valet parking, spending decent time in the shoe salon, and making a stop for lunch at the cafe. I didn’t have to give a baby a snack, I didn’t have to stop shopping to change a diaper, and I didn’t have to skip trying things on because of a mini tantrum. Online shopping will always be my go to, but for days when I need a little me time, you can find me at Neiman!
