5 Favorites from the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale On Now

Thursday, May 21, 2015

If I’m being honest, the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale doesn’t have as many standout Contemporary buys as it usually does. But, that doesn’t mean the sale isn’t worth a good look.

I spent a good chunk of time browsing through the Contemporary site section, as well as the Savvy and T.B.D. store sections. I narrowed my favorites down to these top picks, which I think have the just right mix of style and savings. Check them out…

This modern dress fuses a traditionally menswear henley with a feminine, body-conscious fit. The easy shape will feel effortless on a warm summer day, but still look sharp. Plus, James Perse fabrics are to-die-for soft.

Frame Denim is one of the hot new denim labels on the block, so it seems like a no brainer to pick up a “test” pair when the deal is this good. I particularly like the nubby texture of these Nordstrom-exclusive jeans – if it’s not true ring-spun denim, it sure is a great imitation.

Frame Denim Le Grand Garcon Destroyed Boyfriend Jeans

→ Buy the Frame Denim Le Grand Garcon Destroyed Boyfriend Jeans, $143.40 (was $239.00), at nordstrom.com.

I originally tried on this open-front Joie blazer via the new “try before you buy” online shopping service Lyon + Post. I fell in love with the combination of crisp fit and dark navy linen construction. But, I had already picked out too many other items and had to pass for the sake of my budget. Glad I did, because this sale price is fantastic.

Joie Mehira Blazer

→ Buy the Joie Mehira Blazer, $166.80 (was $278.00), at nordstrom.com.

This lightweight cotton shirt has a subtle, laid-back vibe that screams French girl street style. I’m picturing it tucked into black leather or coated denim pants, paired with midi heels.

Splendid Back Pleat Pinstripe Shirt

→ Buy the Splendid Back Pleat Pinstripe Shirt, $76.80 (was $128.00), at nordstrom.com.

One of my favorite things about big sales is that it presents the perfect excuse to try a style that seems a little too much of a risk at full price. Like these Joe’s jeans. Lightweight denim fashioned into a jogger pant style is risky, but so, so cool.

Joe’s Off Duty Groove Slim Jogger Pant

→ Buy the Joe’s Off Duty Groove Slim Jogger Pant, $99.00 (was $165.00), at nordstrom.com.
