Best of The Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale

May 24, 2017

Exciting news to share on this lovely Wednesday!

We’re starting the Memorial Day festivities early up in here, because Nordstrom already launched their Half-Yearly sale!

As you know, Nordies is one of my very favorite retailers for so many reasons. (Also, have you tried the Nordstrom cafe chicken club? OMG. YOU’LL DIE. Sorry, I’m getting distracted by food again, as usual. No, they didn’t ask me to blog about this sale OR the chicken club, just in case you were wondering.)

Nordstrom has a few sales per year that simply cannot be passed up, and this is one of them!





I’m listing a well-curated, easily skimmable selection of my favorites below, but first, let’s talk about a few specific things that you’ve seen here on the blog lately that are up for grabs at major discounts:

Wayf Hannah Dress: $38!

Okay, this is a never before seen outfit coming to the blog soon–BUT, I had to share a sneak peak of this adorable little dress! I got it on Shopbop but just found it on sale at Nordstrom for 40% at $38! (Whaaaattt?!) It’s selling out FAST so get on it before it’s le gone.

The Peony Tea Dress: $56

The “Peony Tea dress” by Topshop is THE CUTEST. From the beautiful print to the dainty ruffled detail around the neckline to the bell sleeves, you’ll want to wear it everywhere this summer! Runs small, size up! If you’re looking for some lace-up heels like the one’s I’m wearing here, there are also a ton of these included in the sale! Click here to shop all lace-up heels.

Cold Shoulder Wrap Midi: $71

This pretty periwinkle wrap dress is fully stocked and $71 at 40% off! My Steve Madden sandals are also discounted in certain colors! (Both items run true to size!)

Barbour Rain Jacket: $189





My Barbour rain jacket is one of my favorite wardrobe staples (it makes rainy days SO much more fun and also reminds me of my childhood!) This one is the “Trevose” which is not on sale, however, Barbour does sell a twin of this jacket called the “Cirruss” which IS on sale for less than $200 at 20% off! It comes in off-white and red, too!
