I worked on the sales floor of Nordstrom throughout college, spending my summers and winter vacations fitting guys in 'The Rail' section with boot-cut True Religion jeans and Seven Diamonds dress shirts. It was a great college job, but always got even better during sale season. Nordstrom customers (especially in Seattle) are incredibly loyal, and they look forward to the Half Yearly sale with a fervor that is only matched when Nordstrom's other epic sale, Anniversary, comes around. Every shift was both hectic and exhilarating—we were scrambling to make our commissions and keep the floor looking somewhat presentable at the same time as customers came through the revolving doors unceasingly for hours on end.
Flash forward to 2016, when I get to be on the other side of the chaos, and a whole step removed—shopping from the peaceful place that is my computer. Even a seasoned Nordstrom employee knows it's futile to resist the charms—and 40% markdowns—of the Half Yearly sale.
So here we are, Memorial Day weekend is just days away and the sale is in full swing. Rather than wander aimlessly through the pages and pages of discounted clothes and accessories—I did the hard work for you, and I did it with a theme. I rounded up 15 white finds from Nordstrom, all of which are perfect for your #MDW wardrobe.
What, a new fluffy white robe wasn't part of your packing list? What if it rains? Perhaps you're in the market for a fresh new crossbody bag. I am completely and utterly obsessed with both the Rebecca Minkoff 'Suki' bag (reduced to $135!) and the Loeffler Randall 'Baby Rider' bag (reduced to $177!) and am currently just trying to decide if I need one or both of them.
I also included Vince Camuto's 'Court' heeled sandals, because while they come in a variety of colors, the white version makes the perfect summer wedding shoe, IMO. Speaking of summer shoes, Vince's 'Edina' espadrille sandals have backyard barbecue written all over them, and Loeffler Randall's flat 'Petra' sandals are what beach dreams are made of.
Anyway, I'll stop talking and let you shop. Just click the little arrow on the widget down there to see all 15 of my Memorial Day weekend-worthy Nordstrom Half Yearly sale picks.
