Nordstrom has been quietly marking things down for days, and today the signage is up: the Summer Sale has officially started. Look for great deals (40% off or so) on summer items like sandals, shorts, swimsuits, white pants, and coverups — personally I’ve bought like four very similar pairs of denim shorts to try on and see how I like. Ah yes, and if you were holding out for markdowns on stuff you first saw in the Anniversary Sale, today is the day to check to see if your size is still available and on sale. (Here’s all of our 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale coverage, including our roundup of reader favorites, if you may have seen something here.) For today’s weekend open thread, I’m liking this floaty maxi dress — when the high/low trend started a few years ago I was decidedly against it, but now I like it as an easy way to avoid tripping over a long dress. This one looks like it could go to a variety of places depending on your shoes and accessories — date, church, baby shower, even wedding guess attire. It was $168, but is now marked to $100; lucky sizes in regular and petites are still available. Floral Ruffle High/Low Maxi Dress
