    nordstrom half-yearly sale | top 5 under $100.

    Whenever a Nordstrom sale rolls around, everyone gets excited.  A retailer offering an amazing selection of trendy and high-quality items offers 40% off select items and there’s no excuse to miss it.  So of course, I’ve rounded up the five must-have items from the pages of selection.  The sale ends June 4th but there’s still time to take advantage this weekend.

    You may recognize this “shacket” from the outfit I wore touring Chicago, and it hasn’t had much of a break since the day I bought it.  Olive green can be a neutral with almost any color for summer and it’s the perfect solution to a lightweight jacket on cool summer nights.

    Topshop Ethan Shirt Jacket – $45

    There isn’t much not to love about this silky, flouncy shirt for the summer season.  The silhouette, color and ruffles all scream summertime dates, girl’s nights, concerts and whatever else this season brings.

    Ten Sixty Sherman Cold Shoulder Top – $23

    Seriously, how fun is this tote?  Big enough to go to the beach, yet small enough to pull it off for work and grab it on weekends for the farmer’s market.  Plus, that blue color is so fun.

    Steven by Steve Madden Chevron Tote – $54









    Espadrilles are back in full swing and I’m crushing on this lace up pair.  Elevate a jeans/tank outfit or style with a skirt for daytime functions.  Very versatile and a staple to add to your closet – also available in blush suede!

    Kenneth Cole Beverly Espadrille Flat – $72

    When the weather gets hot and muggy as we all know will happen, the first thing I reach for is a simple, comfortable and loose fitted tank.  Stay cool while still looking chic can be difficult, but this striped tank would make it easier.  I love the neckline and the draped detail down the front.

    Treasure & Bond Dobby Tank – $41







    Of course, there is so much more at the Nordstrom sale and I’ve linked a few other favorite in the widget below.

    Happy Friday!
