Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale

Nordstrom is now having it’s half yearly sale until June 4th.  A lot of their spring/summer clothes, shoes, and accessories are 30-40% off.  It’s their biggest sale other than the anniversary sale which starts July 14th and features their fall/winter clothes.  Here are my favorites picks for the current sale.

Tops:

Vince Camuto ($65) – this top comes in other colors but the blush pink is so pretty

 

Sanctuary ($41) – this cold shoulder top can be worn with shorts or jeans and will look great with a pair of espadrilles

 

Rebecca Minkoff ($59) – orange is a hot color for summer and I love the silhouette of this top

 

 Chelsea28 ($41) – this is one of the cutest blue and white striped shirts I’ve seen.  This is a must have.

 

Bobeau ($29) – this top also comes in black and pink.  I would wear it with white denim and the colorful espadrilles that will be shown later in this post.  I’ve seen this a lot on Instagram and it looks very cute on.

 

Caslon ($27) – the linen blend off the shoulder top comes in an array of colors and I appreciate the longer length

 

Bobeau ($35) – this great cold shoulder shirt comes in 1x to 3x

 

Vince Camuto ($59) – this floral top comes in 1x to 3x and will look great with light denim cropped jeans

 

Jeans: 

STS Blue ($29) – these are so on trend with the frayed hem and distressing

 

Treasure and Bond ($59) – the skinny boyfriend jeans have a step hem and lighter wash which is great for summer

 

Kut from the Kloth ($66) – these jeans are so cute and perfect for summer.  They come in 16w to 24w.

 

Dresses: 

Leith ($41) – white dresses are so perfect for summer and this one is simple yet chic.  You can dress it up or down.

 

Socialite ($27) – everyone needs a t-shirt dress in their wardrobe.  You can dress them up or down and are great to throw on when it’s really hot.  You can put a cardigan over them and wear them with boots into the fall.  I have given you three good options from this sale (one above and two below).

 

Socialite ($20)

 

Sejour ($59)

 

Jackets: 

Hinge ($53) – this jacket is beautiful and looks so cool with just a simple t-shirt and jeans or shorts

 

Zella ($77) – I’ve already shown you this jacket in my workout clothes blog post.  I love that it’s reversible and now it is on sale.

 

Shoes:

 

Sam Edelman ($80) – espadrilles are must haves for the summer.  The above and below are a couple of good choices that are on sale.

 

Kenneth Cole ($84) 

 

Tory Burch ($151) – these Tory Burch flats are so cool and can be worn with so much

 

Sam Edelman ($32) – I love the colors in these.  They will add a pop of color to a plain t-shirt and shorts outfit.

 

Vince Camuto ($70) – these sandals can be worn now and into the fall.  I love the color.

 

Accessories:

Tory Burch ($417) – rose gold and silver watch.  It’s beautiful and 40% off.  A great time to get this great piece.

 

Cluse ($59) – this is a great inexpensive watch.  I love the blush pink band for summer.

 

Chan Luu ($29) – this necklace will look great with an off the shoulder top.  It comes in other colors too.

 

This is a great sale with so much to choose from.  Items are going fast so if there is something you like grab it now.  If there is something that you like that is sold out in your size, I would put it in your wish list in a different size and check back to see if they have restocked it.  I stalk the site like this and sometimes it pays off.

Just a reminder the Nordstrom anniversary sale is a great time to stock up on fall/winter clothes and that starts on July 14th.  It is overwhelming but I will be here to help you find the best sale items.

The Latest Summer Fashion Trends

There are a few new trends that I’ve been noticing on Instagram and Pinterest: scarves, neon yellow shoes, and basket bags.

Scarves:

Wearing a scarf around a bun is very popular right now and I think it looks great for summer.  My hair is too short for a bun but I plan on wearing a scarf like a headband when it gets really hot and I want my bangs out of my face.  You can also tie a scarf around a ponytail.

 

Target ($10)

Another option is to just tie the scarf around your bag.

 

Neon Yellow Shoes: 

Yellow shoes look very chic when worn with a minimal outfit.

Nordstrom ($50)

 

DSW ($25)

 

Basket Bags:

This Cult Gaia Ark bag is the one that started the basket bag craze.  Unfortunately it is sold out but I have included some similar choices below.

Hitting The Gym In Style

Trying on shorts and bathing suits has made me come to the realization that I need to hit the gym ASAP.  Nowadays you can go to and from the gym in style.  Here are some of my favorite workout gear finds.  They actually make me want to go to the gym so they must be cute.

Gap Fit ($60) – these leggings are so cool and I would wear them outside the gym too

 

 

Gap Fit ($30) – I love how this tank is open in the back to show off a colorful sports bra

 

Athleta ($49) – a strappy sports bra that would look great with the open back top above.  This also comes in bright colors.

 

Nordstrom ($129) – this Zella jacket is reversible and will look as good on the streets as it does at the gym

 

Nordstrom ($99) – backpacks are very on trend right now and once again can be worn in and out of the gym

 

Nordstrom ($19) – you need this after your workout when your hair is a hot mess

The Best Straw Bags to Carry You Through Summer

If you’re planning on going to the beach or just want to add a touch of summer to your wardrobe then it’s time to get your hands on a straw bag.  These are some of my favorites:

Target ($35) – I love the shape of this bag.  The pom poms and tassels are so on trend.

 

Amazon ($20) – This bag looks much more expensive than it is.  It reminds me of a Kate Spade bag.

 

ASOS ($54) – This bag has a great muted print that will go with anything in your summer wardrobe.

 

Amazon ($20) – Amazon has a great selection of straw bags.  This one is so cute and I love anything French inspired.

 

Shein ($29) – This is the bag that I bought for the summer.  I think the print is so pretty and colorful.  I can’t wait to carry it.

I hope you liked my picks.  Remember that there are multiple uses for these bags making them an affordable and fun addition to your summer wardrobe.  Hope you are enjoying your spring so far.  XOXO  Michelle
