Shopping: Nordstrom Summer Sale

May 21, 2015

First off, a big thanks to everyone who came out to last night’s J.Crew First Look event. It was a lot of fun and I picked up a few new goodies which has got me thinking it’s time for a little break from shopping. I’m thinking that June is going to be another #nonewthings month.

But there’s still nine days left in May so why not round up nine favorites from the Nordstrom Summer Sale that’s going on now. This sale is the best time to grab a few of the forgotten friends left behind in your shopping cart these last few months. If you’re in the market for a new bag, need a new dress for wedding season or realize your favorite dancing shoes are a little worn out – this sale will have you covered. Best part about it? If you don’t like it, you’ve got that free return option.

1. + 9. I love both of these bright and flattering options for summer wedding season. Yes, the pattern may put it out of play for multiple weddings with the same crowd of friends but you can break both of these out again for more casual affairs with the help of a denim jacket or white blazer. Added bonus: both are well under $100

2. + 6. + 8. Oooo me I love shoes. And despite the fact that I owe way more than necessary, I’m always on the lookout for good, neutral options. All three of these hit the mark. Love the mix up on the cheetah espadrille – just as versatile as a plan beige but a lot more fun. These white Joe’s heels have been on my wish list in about four different colors but I think the clean white may be my favorite. Last but not least, these simple, classic sandals are on big time sale and will end up being an MVP in your closet since they go with just about everything.

3. There is no big explanation on this other than the fact that I have a renewed love of backpacks and this peach one may be the perfect replacement for my overstuffed beach bag.

4. + 5. Get some bang for your buck with the sale and splurge on one of these blue bags. I am kind of obsessed with mini bucket bags after seeing one last weekend. So cute and such a great alternative to a clutch. This tote is the right color blue for all us Kentucky fans and will just about every darn thing you need. Especially for moms who have to carry a bunch of crap around but don’t want to resort to a diaper bag.

7. This Philosophy set would make the best little wedding shower gift. Pair it with something from her registry or just give it as a little happy for the bride-to-be.

    Looks like I have some shopping to do. Thanks for all the ideas.


  2. I’m doing my best to not shop and save for some upcoming trips, but I found one too many things I wanted to pick up when working on my Nordstrom Sale post yesterday. The struggle is real.
