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.

I keep seeing more great things in the Nordstrom sale, so I thought I’d do another little round-up of some favorite accessories, denim, weekend stuff, and more. (For example, pictured at top — this great sheath dress comes in teal and black and is down to $58, in regular and petite sizes.) Ladies, what have you bought thus far at the big sale? (Also, not on sale at all, but these two affordable, casual tops look great and are selling out kind of quickly: a cold shoulder top and an off the shoulder top.)

The below content is about the 2016 Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale.

The designer clearance sale started yesterday (we rounded up some of our favorites from the excellent shoe selection and took an early look at some of the more affordable workwear in the sale), but the real motherload just started today: the Nordstrom Half-Yearly sale just started. Tons of great workwear pieces are on sale for 40% off and more starting today.  I’ll round up a few particular pieces, but some general notes about the sale:

  • TONS of great Boss blazers, sheath dresses, and other basics — if you’re upping your workwear game this is a great time to stock up. Lots of lucky sizes only, so filter by that first.
  • The DvF portion of the sale is solid – lots of pretty, feminine pieces that layer well with suits, blazers and more. This cotton suit is nice, and I’m a bit obsessed with this dress.
  • Classiques Entier has a lot of nice work dresses in the sale — lucky sizes only, but super affordable price points
  • Lots of nice minimalist workwear from Vince in the sale
  • Max Mara sale section is solid – lots of suits, but lucky sizes
  • St. John isn’t always my cup of tea, but I’m drooling over half of their sale items — gorgeous dresses and some killer accessories
  • The Theory sale section is ok but not a lot of great urban workwear — lots of ivory linen, stripes, peplums

Some particular picks for workwear from the sale, mostly in order of price (low to high):

The Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale continues (see my top picks), and there are still a ton of great pieces left… including this chic colorblocked satchel. Personally I like the ink/violet/forest combination (pictured), but it’s also available in a more subdued black/fawn/charcoal combination.  I love the luxurious look to the leather, as well as the numerous pockets inside — perfect for keeping your stuff organized and quickly accessible.  The bag was $178, but is currently marked to $118.
