the best liner socks for womenSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Real talk, ladies: which are the best liner socks for women? There seem to be a number of new options competing with mainstays like Hue socks, including fancy companies like Living Royal (pictured – I just bought a pair and am happy with them for the first two wearings!), Gekks, BombasStance, and I’ve even heard great things about socks from clothing brands like Loft and Lululemon. So readers, do tell: do you make a point to wear no-show or liner socks in the summer? Which are your favorite brands that are comfortable, don’t fall down, are colorful/fun (or not)?

sexy off shoulder topSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

If you always thought the off-the-shoulder sweatshirt was sexy in Flashdance, now’s your chance: this laid back top from Free People comes in a zillion colors and is on sale for $34-$45, sizes XS-L. I love a lot of Free People’s things for the weekend because they’re so soft, and I feel like they get the off-duty vibe just right. (The brand runs fairly large, FWIW – if you want a more fitted look you may want to size down.) Palisades Off the Shoulder Top

Looking for something similar in plus sizes? This top comes in sizes 1X-7X for $28.

I kept meaning to do another round-up of bags and accessories in the ongoing Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale, but time has gotten away from me, so I’ll make this our Weekend Open Thread. Tons of great stuff (particular notes on brands in the sale after the jump, as well as some particularly lovely flats and pumps all under $100, along with some more splurgey fun bags) — I’ll also try to update our other big workwear roundup, although at least check almost everything was still in stock. Happy Weekend!

We did our big roundup of the clothes for work in the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale that just started — but there are a TON of their best-selling denim styles on sale as well, including jeans from AG, Paige, Articles of Society, Wit & Wisdom, and more. AG jeans (particularly the Stilt and Farrah) are consistently bestsellers, and these medium blue ones look great for a variety of situations. This particular pair of jeans was $188, but the pair is now marked to $154, with a good range of sizes left. Pictured: The Stilt Cigarette Leg Jeans

Other great Memorial Day sales to check out (in addition to remembering and honoring the men and women who died serving in the US military, of course):

Wow: these espadrilles have more than 100 great reviews at Nordstrom, and come in about ten colors — if you’re looking for height (4″!) with a walkable heel (2″) these might just do the trick. I like more earthy colors with espadrilles, but that’s me – they also come in a bright cobalt and fun yellow, as well as a shiny gold — there are also several beigey shades and a black. (Pictured: olive.) They’re $149, and available in sizes 5-11 and Nordstrom, Amazon, and Zappos.  Alida Espadrille Platform Wedge

Readers seemed to be really loving the new very feminine collaboration between Nordstrom and the blogger behind Gal Meets Glam — and this midi dress is great for the weekend. It kind of reminds me of our long ago discussion of “the weekend you,” inspired by style maven Elsa Klensch’s statement that on summer weekends, “my fantasy … is to look as though I just stepped out of an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel wearing Gatsby-style long skirts and gently flowing chiffon scarves.” This dress seems to belong in a different fantasy (perhaps one more inspired by the era from The Notebook), but if you’re a city girl, just slipping on a dress like this can really take you to a different place mentally very quickly. The dress is $178, available in bone/blue (pictured) and beige/orange (lucky sizes only).  Lauren Botanical Garden Print Midi Dress
