Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale (or, as we refer to it, their Memorial Day Sale) has just started! And it’s a big one. So much so that it’s easy to get overwhelmed, and, per usual, the good stuff sells fast. The sale runs from now, May 26, through June 6, but case in point? These swimsuits: Becca’s Color Code (a team favorite) or Vix’s impossibly cute one have only one size left (already!).

Shana’s Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale Picks

  1. p448 Thea Sneakers – p448s are expensive, but the Thea style, which has a slight platform, is not only THE most comfortable sneaker I’ve ever worn (like walking on a squishy cloud), but looks really flattering on. Nordstrom has three pairs of p448 Thea sneakers in the sale that are worth considering: basic white, the pair closest to mine, and a cool, edgy two-tone pair.
  2. rag & bone Maya Straight Leg Jeans – These sold out at Saks really quickly, but Nordstrom still has a bunch of sizes (on sale). They’re rigid denim but soften with wear, and this soft gray color looks kiiiiind of amazing with white or gray. I’ve been wearing them a ton this spring, and the fit is TTS (I’m wearing a 26). They’re kind of an unexpected summer look with a strappy black cami, nude heels and a straw bag.

  1. MIA Lunna Platform Ankle Strap Sandal (more colors here): My exact color is sold out this year, but my mom has the black, and it’s honestly probably more wearable (and on-trend this season). These feel like absolute marshmallows on. My favorite simple summer sandal. True to size. (p.s. Dress is also on sale here: runs large; size down one.)
  2. Zella Spray Dye Racerback Bra: Again, my color is sold out, but the slate-y blue-gray I’m linking is arguably more wearable AND more flattering. (What can I say, I was trying something perky during quarantine.) There’s an extra shelf inside this “bra” so it almost functions more like a crop top with a built-in bra. Super comfy and love the style. True to size.
  3. Zella Spray Dye High Waist Legging: Reliable Zella legging quality and fit in the same cool blue as the tank linked above. Summery without being obnoxious. True to size.

  2. P448 Thea Platform Sneaker: I love P448 sneakers, they are beyond comfortable and the platform is trendy too.
  3. Alo Moves Membership: My absolute fav membership for working out.

JESS’ NORDSTROM Half-Yearly Sale PICKS

  1. Free People Easy Street Tunic: My forever favorite Free People Sweater is 40% off. It may be 90 degrees out, but some deals are just too good to pass up!
  2. The North Face Never Stop Wearing Jumpsuit: It’s an ‘Active Girl’s Summer’ ya’ll. We’re making up for lost time this year by doing all the things. And thankfully Nordstrom has my wardrobe completely covered with this stretchy, water-repellant North Face jumpsuit. This jumpsuit literally does it all, from: hiking, to yard work, and even our Memorial Day grill out with friends.
  3. Vince Camuto Drawstring Short Sleeve Romper: Stylish and flattering, without substituting comfort (made from 100% super soft lyocell), this Vince Camuto romper is the perfect go-to look for those slightly more sophisticated, summer activities. Pair it with espadrilles for sushi dinner dates in Easttown or pair it with your favorite white sneakers for a day downtown exploring ArtPrize Outdoor Festival.

Julieta’s NORDSTROM Half-Yearly Sale PICKS

  1. If you want a comfy chic outfit look no further than this jumpsuit (more colors here, and plus-size version here). Its super soft material is breathable, and the design is perfect. The V is not too low and the details at the waistline very slimming. I always wear these smoothing shorts under. You get a seamless look while smoothing any bumps and lumps.
  2. These Born Sandals feel like walking on clouds. This year they come in a lot more color options and I couldn’t recommend them enough.

CAM’S NORDSTROM HALF-YEARLY SALES PICKS

  1. I’ve been noticing Coach back on the scene and it makes my heart happy….reminds me of the ’90s! My Godmama had a collection (still does) and I used to have heart eyes over them. I think I will have to get one and this Coach Willis Leather Top Handle is a frontrunner.
  2. BlankNYC’s Good Vibes Moto Jacket is almost exactly the same as my own BlankNYC moto jacket, the one I am wearing above. I’ve been wearing it for at least a few years now and can’t say enough good things about it. It goes with everything! (And it’s a steal of a deal right now.)
