It’s that time of year again! Obviously, I’m not referring to the holidays because they’re lame, but something better—Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale. Yes, seriously. Just when you thought you couldn’t spend anymore godd*mn money this month, well, think again because you’ve always got something stashed in your savings or in your coat pocket or whatever. The biggest sale started yesterday, so there’s a ton of time left to run to your nearest Nordstrom or to start loading up an online cart.
As usual, the store is offering up to 50% off many, many must-have items including Topshop, Rebecca Minkoff, Michael Kors, and like, a bajillion more brands. The sale goes through January 2, which happens to be the perfect time to stock up on a fresh and chic af new wardrobe to kick off the new year. Since all the good things always seem to sell out quickly, here are seven things you shouldn’t hesitate on and get ASAP before they’re gone.
It may not be summer weather anymore, but that doesn’t mean you have to swear off skirts for the next few months. In tundra-like temps, rock one like this with sexy black tights, ankle booties, and a super cozy sweater. This one is like $30 and comes with a button style everyone seems to be wearing these days, so it’s basically a win-win.
Windbreakers are totally in again, in the least ’80s way possible. Bible. Cop one early to get a head start on spring.
What’s another oversize sweater to your closet anyway? This one comes in two pastel, neutral shades and feature a fun, balloon sleeve that’s probs a pain in the ass when you’re eating, but still earns you a ton of compliments.
These are about as basic as UGGs, but like, if you don’t own a pair already, wtf are you waiting for? Rain sucks and f*cks up every other good pair of boots so buying Hunters on sale is kind of a no-brainer.
The limit does not exist for how many contour palettes one could possibly own. This one rings in at just over $20 and features a blush, bronzer, and highlighter that give you the perfect natural-looking summer glow, even in the dead of winter.
Everyone and their mother owns a pair of Adidas, Vans, and Converse. Switch up your usual go-to for one that’s a bit more underrated, chic, and insta-worthy, but still comfortable enough to go from the office to the bar in.
I feel like we can all agree on the fact that every crossbody previously owned is either lost or literally falling apart. In case you’re in desperate need of an upgrade, this minimalist trendy style is spacious enough for all of your junk without looking bulky, making it v worth the splurge.

Anyone who’s anyone knows that this weekend is the weekend that unofficially kick-starts the summer. Memorial Day weekend is basically a preview of what’s to come in the upcoming months after we spend too many hours under the sun drinking La Croix cocktails. I cannot fucking WAIT. By this point in the year, the weather has (hopefully) warmed up so that we can dig out our favorite shorts, new bathing suits, and flattering dresses to the many drunken pool parties, boat parties, and barbecues we’ll obviously be attending. The perks of this upcoming weekend don’t stop there, though. I’m talking about a 4-day weekend, which means no Monday morning at work (praise fucking be), much-needed getaways, and of course, the insanely good shopping deals your email inbox will be overwhelmed with. The biggest (and clearly, the best) would be the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale that starts today and goes through June 3rd. Trendy af styles will be 40% off, so now’s the time to get those sandals, tops, and skirts you’ve been eyeing on Instagram influencers.
1. WAYF Kean Wrap Crop Top
This isn’t like, a regular crop top. It’s a cool crop top with a v extra wrapped tie you can easily take from the beach to the bar. Both subtle stripes and nautical vibes are in rn, so definitely be sure to pack this with you next time your plans involve a yacht.
2. Topshop Twill Asymmetrical Wrap Skirt
Skirts are everything at the moment, so if you haven’t amped up your game since your Laguna Beach days, you should probs consider grabbing a couple of styles during the Nordstrom Half-Yearly sale. This simple black wrapped skirt can easily be worn in the office and to happy hour without any judgment or passive-aggressive emails.
3. Free People Counting Daisies Embroidered Off The Shoulder Dress
You’ll look both in theme and appropriately patriotic for Memorial Day and Fourth of July with this white and red off the shoulder dress. You go, Glen Coco. It’ll go perfectly with the new tan you’re bound to get this weekend and looks fab when paired with block heel sandals (see #6) that also happen to make your legs look miles long.
4. WAYF Polermo Wrap Maxi Dress
It wasn’t until this spring that I developed an entirely new appreciation for maxi dresses. But only the styles that are decorated with boho chic prints and make me look tall, lean, and classy. This chiffon style is obviously a reminder of why we love millennial pink, and it will def get you a ton of likes every time you post a Boomerang in it.
5. 4SI3NNA Crop Jumpsuit
The limit does not exist for how many jumpsuits you can own in the summer. Especially a black one (or two) that show your die-hard dedication for an all black wardrobe, regardless of the season (and make you look slimmer).
6. Mercedes Castillo Darea Ankle Tie Platform Sandal
And of course, with a new summer wardrobe and attitude, you need cute new shoes. Fucking duh. Wraparound styles always get you so many compliments, and as we’ve established, a low block heel AND platform gives you extra height without a ton of pain. It’s just a bonus that it comes in a neutral shade because then you know you’ll be wearing them out to plenty of nights of bar hopping.
