If you’re a Nordstrom lover like me, then one sale that gets you really excited is the Half Yearly Sale, which is going on now until June 2. The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is a chance to grab deals on thousands of items for your summer wardrobe. During the retailer’s Half Yearly Sale, prices are up to 50% off (most are 40%) on cute dresses, trendy sandals, fun swimwear, and gorgeous accessories, everything you need to get your summer wardrobe in tip top shape for the upcoming season.
I like to shop sales for two things, big discounts on high priced items (especially designer pieces) and stocking up on basics.
Here are my favorite’s from this year’s Half Yearly Sale:
The Bernardo Winnie Waterproof Rain Bootie is a nice way to freshen up your rainy day footwear with a boot that pairs just as well with skinny jeans as galoshes, without all the extra bulk. Plus, the plaid trim and green color is simply divine. Currently on sale 40% off from $154.95 to $92.96.
For me, the ideal summer sandal is an espadrille and Sam Edelman’s have been stellar these past few seasons, both for comfort and style. They wear well out of the box, with no break in period required, and no excessive rubbing on toes or heels. These Sam Edelman Maura Espadrilles are available in a lovely neutral color (Natural Buff) that will pair well with everything. The platform style lowers the arch on your foot to two inches, without sacrificing height. Currently on sale 40% off from $129.95 to $77.96.
For a day at the beach, nothing beats sporting a flip flop. I prefer styles that use fabric to avoid any rubbing on the inside of my toes. The ergonomic design of Vionic flip flops make the Vionic Tide II Flip Flop comfortable to walk in. Currently on sale 40% from $64.95 to $38.96.
Embrace the warm weather with a straw bag, then amp up the hands free factor with this fun belt bag. If you’ve worn a belt bag in the past and are shy to do so again, sling this Kara Woven Bum Bag across your shoulder instead. Currently on sale 40% from $350.00 to $209.98.
Tankini tops are ideal when you want to sport swimwear without showing off extra weight around your middle. This Tommy Bahama Halter Tankini Top is reversible, giving you two looks in one, nautical and solid blue, perfect for packing light when you travel. Currently on sale 40% from $118.00 to $70.80.
When you want to dress cool, and didn’t have time to shave your legs, the Caslon Drawstring Jersey Maxi Dress will become your new best friend. The long style covers up hairy legs, while the jersey material is lightweight enough to keep you cool when it’s hot out. Plus, a dress make getting ready super easy, one item and you’re ready to go. Available in three lovely options and currently on sale 40% off from $69.00 to $41.40.
Whether you go denim, casual, dressy, or sporty, one classic piece in summer wardrobes is a pair of shorts. With a torn pocket, light wash, and cut-off style, these DL1961 Karlie Cutoff Denim Boyfriend Shorts are perfect for wearing to a baseball game or backyard barbeque. Currently on sale 50% off from $139.00 to $69.50.
Available in four neutral colors, the Caslon Cotton Twill Shorts are lightweight enough for a really hot day, yet still casual enough to sport when you aren’t in the mood for the heavier weight of denim on your legs. Currently on sale 40% off from $49.00 to $29.40.
When you’ve got to get dressed up, try mixing up your look with a pair of dressy summer shorts and heels. These CeCe Whispering Vines Linen Blend Shorts are lovely paired with a white top and neutral heels. Currently on sale 40% off from $99.00 to $59.40.
Brighten up a sporty look with these yellow Top Shop Waffle Weave Runner Shorts. Currently on sale 33% off from $18.00 to $12.00.
