Happy almost MDW, team!
I am sure you know—especially if you read other blogs—the Nordstrom half-yearly sale is going on now! This is Nordstrom’s biggest sale until their anniversary sale this summer so it’s definitely the time to stock up! I thought I’d mix things up a bit and show you how you can grab eight of my favorite pieces—or their exact copycats—on-sale now.
(Also, if you haven’t yet, I’d love for you take my reader survey! You can take it here.)
MADEWELL LEATHER SATCHEL ($125—25% off)
(Click any of the teal product names to shop—couldn’t figure out how to underline them! #techology)
This Madewell bag has quickly become one of my favorite items in my closet. It’s large enough to fit everything I need in a typical day—umbrella, wallet, keys, Metrocard, notepad, but small enough I don’t mind taking it with me to happy hour after work. The Nordstrom version is slightly lighter than the Madewell version, but gorgeous none-the-less.
STEVE MADDEN INDI SANDALS ($79.20—20% off!)
At 20% off, you should jump all over the opportunity to buy these sandals! They are great quality, take no time to break in, and the perfect height where I could truly walk around all day in them and not hate myself. I am especially looking forward to wearing them at weddings this summer! These run TTS—I bought a 7 and generally wear a 7.
LOOKALIKE VINCE CAMUTO CUT OUT BOOTIES ($59.95—40% off!)
I picked these booties up last year at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and pretty much walked through them this past fall and winter. Caslon has a great lookalike version in two colors—black and gray suede—that have the same cutout detailing as my tried-and-true faves.
VINCE CAMUTO MINDIE GHILLIE SANDAL ($77.96—40% off!)
I love, love, love these sandals! Whenever I wear them I get so many compliments and they really go with everything. Though, I wouldn’t commit to these if you had to be on your feet the whole day as they are a bit high. I also found they run slightly large—I bought a 6.5 even though I usually wear a 7.
DOGEARED PEARL NECKLACE ($28.80—40% off!)
I love this necklace so much—I wear it almost every day. It actually appears in most outfit photos here on A Touch of Teal, you just can’t see it because it always falls under my shirt. The struggle is real y’all. This would also be a great gift to stock up on for your girlfriends, bridesmaids, or brides-to-be!
BP TROLLEY BOOTIE ($74.90—25% off!)
If you buy one thing from this sale, it should be these BP Trolley Booties. I purchased them in two colors back in 2014, and they have held up so well. I own this cognac color as well as the black ones. I know it is weird to buy fall clothes now, but you’ll save yourself money in the long run. Plus, these bad boys are so popular, it’s hard to get them in all sizes come September. Order a half size up—I wear a 7.5 and am a true 7.
RIPPED BLACK SKINNY JEANS ($40.80—40% off!)
So, I ripped my own black skinny jeans in the picture, heh, but picked up these Vigoss black skinny jeans during the sale. They run TTS and so far, so great—they don’t stretch throughout the day. I’m 5’4″ so they are a tad longer on me than what’s shown on the model, but not so long I had to get them hemmed. At $40, you can’t beat the price.
BLACK LEATHER WATCH ($59.40—20% off!)
While my black leather watch is Daniel Wellington, this one is a dead ringer and costs way less. Swap out the logo, and you’ve basically got the same watch.
I’d love to know what, if anything, you are picking up from the Nordstrom half-yearly sale!
