I took another look at the Nordstrom Half-Yearly sale over the weekend (#notsuprising) to see what items were still left. In the spirit of the Memorial Day Holiday I focused solely on Red, White and Blue picks. The orange adverse will thank me for the reprieve. So kick up your feet (#hopefullybyAPool) and peruse the best of what’s left and enjoy your Memorial Day! Look for many of these items to appear in a post later this week where I style 3 skirts and 3 blouses … 8 ways. I’m just waiting for the sun to cooperate to be able to take pictures. #sendsunshine #prettyplease
The Red Edit
I’m a big fan of the color red. I like to use it as a statement color to pop against more neutral colors or as a statement piece. All of these pieces meet one of those criteria.
Vince Camuto Machila Block Heel – (also comes in Blue and Olive) -I like the edgy studs and the tassel on the zipper. These are the very definition of statement shoes! If I hadn’t bought two pairs of sandals last week these would be on their way to my house. #thatgood
Lambskin Leather Moto Jacket – If you are looking to make a statement … there is no better way than with red leather. And there is nothing softer than lambskin. #redhot
Ballet Slipper – Classic and comfortable. This actually comes in 8 different colors – many with a contrasting cap toe that makes a statement itself.
BOSS Banyra Stretch Silk Blouse – Brighten up any color suit with this workplace staple. #silkstaples
Hugo Boss Vubali A-line Skirt – Words cannot express how gorgeous this skirt is. Look for pictures later this week on Facebook and Instagram and snap this beauty up before it’s gone. #I❤️Hugo
Kate Spade Bracelet – I own a purple and rose gold version of this bracelet. Mine is years old … it is that timeless. #statementbling
Sam Edelman Willow Strappy Sandal – Also comes in grey and taupe. If you want sandals with heels that are comfortable … cork wedge heels deliver (I’m speaking from experience here!!). #walkformiles
BOSS Demida Sheath Dress – This dress was also available in a gorgeous blue. Walk into a board room wearing this red number and everyone is going to take notice. #bosslady
Palm Blouse – This is actually from Ann Taylor (but also on sale) when combined with the pencil skirt below and the red sandals from the featured image you have the perfect ensemble. It also comes in a sleeveless version and petite.
Pumps – Red heels can be worn with ANYTHING as a statement shoe (#noreally). These are gorgeous and at less than $70 you cannot go wrong.
Alice & Olivia Off-the Should Dress – If you need a special occasion dress it doesn’t get any more special than this beauty. On sale for less than $200 (a bargain for Alice & Olivia).
The White Edit
White can be a challenge for me. It isn’t always the best color for my skin tone but nothing says summer more than crisp white. #INeedATan
Rebecca Minkoff Isobel Satchel – A white purse just screams summer and a satchel is always classic.
Chelsea28 Dress – I’ve highlighted this beauty in Navy before. I still probably prefer the Navy one but for those looking for a white dress this is a good! #callingallbrides
Sam Edelman Sandal – Nothing shows off a summer tan better than white … all the way down to your shoes. #IStillNeedATan
Madewell Stripe Tie Blouse – I have a similar sleeveless Blouse I wear all the time. The tie can be tucked into high waisted jeans or pencil skirts for a more formal look.
Vince Camuto Asymmetrical Top – I own this top in white and pink. It is an easy piece to throw on by itself that requires no tucking and still looks professional. You can also top with a jacket. #summerbreezy
Square Neck Tank – Another pick from Ann Taylor – I am always a fan of the non-traditional cut. This square neckline fits the bill perfectly. #notcookiecutter
Theory Ennalyn Ballet Tee – I recently purchased a navy ballet blouse and the lines and drape are gorgeous and unique. Packs perfectly and pairs with skirts or pants. #soversatile
Born Havana Sandals – A perfectly perforated white sandal. Plus, anything named Havana has to be cool. #mojitoInfluence
The Blue Edit
Vince Camuto Leddy Wedge – Comes in black, orange or blue. There is something very interesting about a ballet / espadrilles hybrid.
Cupcakes and Cashmere Linen Tee – I generally like my Tees to be taken up a notch. Linen achieves this perfectly! #tiedetail
Perverse Aviators – The sunglass silhouette that will never go out of style. Make then unique and NOW in blue.
Lucky Brand Star Shell – This fun casual Tee also comes in red with white stars. #hurryup4thofJuly
Classiques Entier Open Front Jacket – I would love to find a white version of this jacket – until then Navy will do. #navyisthenewblack
Classiques Entier Skirt – I ordered this pinstripe beauty last week (along with the jacket). Look for pictures on Facebook and Instagram as soon as it arrives. #pinstripesuit
Ted Baker Verita Dress – I have a soft spot for Ted and this piece is amazing. If this is outside your price range the Maggy London Solid Dream Crepe Dress is equally stunning but less than half the price. #twoforone
Tory Burch Marquerite Sandals – How fun are these for summer? Also comes in white, in a low heel version or as a two strap version. If Nordstrom is running out of sizes there were several other places this was on sale. (Bloomingdale’s, Saks and Tory Burch) #floweredfeet
Vince Camuto Lindel Open Toe Bootie – These also came in black, and taupe. I like the mix of bootie and sandal with details like perforations and peep-toes. Zappos also had them for the same price. These kind of remind me of my Vince Camuto Lavette sandal. Lovely!!
Franco Sarto Fidela Block Heel Sandals – Comes in blue, black or grey. I also featured these in the Spring Sandal Roundup. They were definitely one of the favorites. #roundtwo
