Holiday Weekend Open Thread

Readers were singing the praises of Mott 50 recently, and because I’m like a vampire and hate the sun, I’m now drooling over this cardigan that you can wear as a cover-up with a suit, or just outside anytime. It’s rated UPF 50 for sun protection and even has thumbholes to cover your hands, it’s machine wash cold/line dry, and it just looks awesome. The cardigan comes in seven colors in sizes XS-XL at Amazon. Mott 50 Women’s Marilyn Open Cardigan

Nordstrom also carries the brand (but not the cardigan); of course the brand’s site has the most options.

Happy Fourth of July, everyone! How is your office handling the Tuesday holiday?

This is the kind of dress that another site or magazine will tell is you is a perfect desk to dinner dress — and it may be that, if you’re the kind of person who wants to wear one dress to the office and then to dinner. I think it’s a really sexy, cute navy dress, and I like the sort of halter neckline, the asymmetrical hemline, and the faux wrap style (which looks a little low in the front — something to be aware of if you’re considering this for work). This is from a new line I’m not familiar with called Cooper St, which looks like it has some fun clothes. The dress is $159 at Nordstrom in sizes 2-12 and is hand wash cold, line dry. Imperial Asymmetrical Dress

Two plus-size options are here (with an even lower neckline than the dress pictured) and here.

There are a million sandals out there with a kind of schlubby look, or a glam, disco-diva look on the other end, but if you just want a slight heel to wear with shorts for a put-together weekend look, I think this is your perfect shoe. It’s flattering, it’s secure because of the multiple straps, it’s comfortable because it’s from Sofft, it has a lot of colorways, and it’s got 211 reviews at Zappos with a 4/5 rating. It looks a great shoe for everyday weekend style, and it comes in sizes 6-11 in medium and wide widths. It’s $89.95 at Zappos and is also available at Amazon and NordstromSofft Innis Sandal

Suddenly, all I want right now for the weekend is light blue jeans that are ankle-length. I’ve seen them in a ton of different styles: whiskered and light, skinny crop, kick flare crop, even pull-on jeans. We’re past the rolling stage, so don’t worry about that anymore; the new thing is just cropped jeans. I like it — I think it looks clean and cool. These jeans from Articles of Society were $68 and are on sale for $40 at Nordstrom (lucky sizes only). Heather High Waist Crop Pants

Two plus-size options are here and here.

Psst: If you’re kind of obsessed with an oversized, slouchy sweatshirt for the weekend (or at least, if you were all spring), this one is great — I just ordered it in a second color.

There are two days left in the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale! (Here are our earlier roundups on workwear and accessories for work.) I was perusing it last night and there are a ton of good shoes for work left — I’m going to try to do a round-up below. But these strappy, sophisticated sandals seem perfect for all kinds of outings, from weddings to dates to dancing. (They also come in a sapphire blue I’m swooning over!) They were $149, but are now marked to $104; lots of sizes still left. Ruby Asymmetrical Strappy Sandal

Update: OK, check out my favorite 20 shoes for work after the jump! I excluded anything that only had lucky sizes left because like I said, there are TONS of things left — but of course if you’re doing a search for yourself filter by your size first.

If you’re on the hunt for affordable fake diamond earrings, I always hear readers singing the praises of Nadri. These are certainly well reviewed at Nordstrom, and I think they look kind of edgy and cool. They’re great for the weekend and for date nights, and in some offices they’d be OK, too — I do think they’re better for the weekend, though. They’re available in black hematite, gold, rose gold, and silver for $60. ‘Crescent’ Linear Hoop Earrings

Psst: Happy Long Weekend! We’ll try to keep an eye on sales over the weekend and post any updates — in the meantime we’ll see you back on Tuesday! Of course you can check out our roundup of the best workwear in the Nordstrom sale — I also managed to do another mini-roundup for accessories, including some pretty awesome ones. Full details after the jump…
