Ladies its on!
The Nordstrom 1/2 yearly sale starts today. First come first serve this sale doesn’t mess around. This is a clearance sale so if you like it grab it while you can, sizes go fast!
In honor of this exciting event I am bringing you some of my favorite sale items. The site was live at midnight last night. I will add any additional items I find during the day as well as post updates to my Facebook page to keep you all in the know.
Grab your coffee and let’s go!
There are tons of great sale styles, I narrowed it down to my top three boots. You’re welcome!
I have personally tried on each of these myself; all three have great online reviews. I found they all ran true to size for me as well as for my girlfriend who helped model and took these photographs for you! You can thank her too.
All three are walkable and comfortable. I don’t do uncomfortable. I can walk all day in each of these styles.
Sam Edelman ‘Troy’ Boot | Was: $179.95 Now: $89.90 50% OFF | HERE
Available in black, gray and brown (my favorite!). The gray suede is really gray. It is less distressed in real life; I was hoping the toe was going to be darker in person.
The brown color has a burnished toe so it goes great with black and grays as well.
Here is how it looks on:
Sam Edelman ‘Penny’ Boot | Was: $189.95 Now: $149.90 20% OFF | HERE
Available in black, brown and whiskey (my pick)
Here is how it looks on:
Dolce Vita ‘Posie’ Wedge Boot | Was: $89.95 Now: $49.96 40% OFF |HERE
Available in black, taupe, cognac (almost sold out on line)

Here is how it looks on:
All trends covered here. A lug sole moto boot, a fabulous tall boot and a wedge bootie all wrapped up in one package!
The hard part is deciding!
You can have three fab boot trends covered for just under $300 or pick the one you like best.
A few others I want to mention
From top left, clockwise:
Rag and Bone ‘Newbury’ Bootie | Was: $550.00 Now: $329.98 40% OFF | HERE (love this for a splurge!)
Kork Ease ‘Natalya’ Burnished Leather Demi Wedge Boot | Was: $189.95 Now: $129.90 30% OFF, 4 colors | HERE
Jessica Simpson ‘Caufield’ Bootie | Was: $128.95 Now: $86.39 33% OFF| HERE I have not seen this one or tried it on, but I think it is a cute style and I like the color.
Joe’s ‘Abby’ Cutout Leather Bootie | Was: $198.95 Now: $133.29 33% OFF | HERE I have this in black and I love it for a fun bootie. Comfort wise it is just OK for me but I am able to wear it fine for a date night or lunch around town. Ran true to size for me.
Just added for Tory Burch fans!

I love all three of these styles and have personally tried each one on. All three run true to size and are available in multiple color options.
Bernardo hooded packable goose down vest | Was: $118.00 Now: $79.06 33% OFF | HERE
Available in black or gray (shadow)
Here is how it looks on. This was an XS but I needed a small so that is why it is a bit tight.
Lauren by Ralph Lauren packable down vest, no hood | Packable Down Vest | Was: $145.00 Now: $100.99 30% OFF | HERE
Available in 4 colors
Here is how it looks on
Here is a side-by- side comparison. I like them both. The main difference for me was that the Bernardo one is more fitted and has a hood. I bought the Bernardo in black.
I also like these two puffer vests by Michael Kors but was unable to try either on, as they were not available in the store. Both are very fun! HERE and HERE (this was already sold out in my size, I am hoping that Nordstrom restocks if for me!)
Laundry quilted jacket with removable hood (regular & petite) | Was: $168.00 Now: $83.99 50% OFF | HERE
Available in 3 beautiful colors. I wish I needed a jacket because I loved this style on.
Here is how it looks on. Color is more like photo above. My photo is a bit over exposed.
I also love this jacket, though I have not tried it on. From Caslon, now $76.80 HERE

Halogen High/Low Cashmere Stripe and Solid Gray Sweater | Was: $128.00 Now: $76.80 40% OFF |HERE
Here is how it looks on. It is longer in the back. I like it layered with a puffer vest, skinny jeans and boots for an easy run-out-the-door casual outfit,
Halogen Cashmere Shirttail Sweater (Regular & Petite) | Was: $148.00 Now: $88.80 40% OFF, in 6 colors | HERE
Here is how it looks on:
I love the cut of this sweater, it reminds me of Vince. It looks a lot like a Vince sweater for WAY less. For me it ran big and I did size down. Reviews are a bit mixed as some found it itchy. I am very sensitive to itchy sweaters it itched just a little. I was at a lunch yesterday and my girlfriend in the photo (thank you Michelle for letting me take your picture) who was wearing it with tall boots, so cute! I had to look at the label as I thought it was a Vince sweater! Anyway, she said it was not itchy to her at all. If you are comfortable layering it or don’t find things itchy, it may be for you! It is a wonderfully cut sweater with the longer back, shirttail hem and side slits.
Michael Michael Kors Thermal Cowl Neck Sweater (Regular & Petite & Plus) | Was: $99.50 Now: $59.70 40% OFF, in 7 colors (my favorite was the gray) HERE
Here is how it looks on.
I can see just throwing this on with jeans and boots and running out the door. I think it can be dressed up for a casual evening as well. Great price!
Halogen Side Zip Sweater (Regular & Petite), in 4 colors | Was: $68.00 Now: $39.90 40% OFF | HERE
I am loving the modern side zip styling. As you can see in the photo, I forgot to layer it with a tee so it looks kind of off. As you can see on the model, this style should be layered. This is definitely a casual sweater as it is a cotton rib. True to size.
Here are a few others I like that are currently marked down for the sale
Bobeau hooded space dye cardigan | Was: $48.00 Now: $28.80 40% OFF | 4 colors | HERE

I absolutely love this skirt! I personally own it and will be doing a post on accordion pleat skirts in the next few weeks. Since this just got marked down, I had to share. This skirt can be dressed up or down and looks A LOT like a skirt from a high end designer.
I have worn this skirt with moto boots to ankle strap pumps. It is more versatile than you would think.
