Memorial Day Sales: Nordstrom

Let’s kick off the holiday weekend and sale round-ups with a stop at Nordstrom.

They don’t have a specific Memorial Day Sale, but they have the weekend coincide with their half-yearly sale.

Don’t confuse the Half-Yearly Sale with their Anniversary Sale.

The Anniversary Sale is incredible. It’s so good that I spend the entire week shopping it for you.

This sale is more of a low-key promotion that helps move seasonal pieces.

I went through 100 pages of sale items and found nine, that’s it, just 9 items that are worth considering.

These have solid inventory (when we go live) in prices that range from no-brainer to still a considered purchase with significant savings.

Let’s go shopping …

Memorial Day Sales: Nordstrom

Bay Cutout Slide Sandal

These Sam Edleman Slide Sandals are a fabulous find, discounted in a range of basic colors. Below is their “Honey Brown,” which looks rich and designer inspired.

But it’s also available in black, brown, silver, croco and a handful of other options, all under $100. These will sell out.

Tory Burch Mini Kira Woven Canvas Convertible Crossbody Bag

This bag makes my heart sing. How gorgeous?!

Originally $398 now $278, so still a thoughtful purchase but with great savings.

This is small enough to use as an occasion bag but big enough to keep what you need.

Vionic Merlot Sandal

From reader favorite brand, Vionic, these heeled sandals are available in toffee (below), black, white and gold.

Vionic is one of the very rare comfort brands that makes actually stylish shoes. They have a footbed with something called “A VIO MOTION™ technology” which offers contoured arch support, shock-absorbing cushioning, stability and flexibility.

Plus, they are cute and work with any number of outfits that require some height.

Now 33% off, making them just under $100.

Shirred Neck Rumpled Satin Blouse 

If you are looking for a simple but elevated top to wear with summer pants and shorts, this blouse from Vince Camuto is very pretty.

Available in pink and orange it has extra finished details, around the sleeves and neckline and a sort of crinkled finish.

I would wear this with white jeans and fun Tuckernuck-style statement earrings.

Available in XXS – XXL, this runs large so size down a least one.

Tulip Sleeve Mixed Media Top

I ordered this sweet top to pair with some of my light-washed summer jeans.

Here’s the thing, I would never spend $80 on this, but $55? For a fun outfit-making top – more my speed.

Available in XXS – XXL, I took the medium.

Variegated Stripe Stretch Cotton Sweatshirt

Pairing two things I love, a sweatshirt and stripes, I quickly scooped this up for summer nights at the beach, paired with shorts.

Available in blue and white or tan and white stripe for under $30.

I took the medium.

Button Front Crinkled Crepe Midi Dress

One thing I’ve learned over the years is that our readership loves a polk-a-dot print, so I had to share this retro-inspired midi dress, on sale for $64.90.

If you pick this up, consider having it hemmed to hit at the best place on your leg, and size up one this runs small, but I love it for a summer party paired with a neutral-to-you sandal or a pop of color like pink.

Jada Crystal Stud Small Hoop Earrings

From Kendra Scott, these stud hoop earrings are gorgeous, available in yellow or white gold-plate, for $44.98.

They are a great addition to your summer jewelry collection, easy to wear, affordable, feminine and a little different looking.

Cushion Cut Cubic Zirconia Stud Earrings

Finally, I just ordered these in both the platinum-plated (featured and on sale for only $29.25) and the gold-plated (regular price at $45.)

They are updated, and slightly oversized but still wearable. I think they will end up being my go-to studs for summer.

I have subscribed to your newsletter for several months now and find it very helpful and interesting. I do not have the Wardrobe Essentials Checklist. Not sure if I just didn’t see it emailed or was never emailed it. Please send me one if possible. Thank you very much.
