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!

Workwear Hall of Fame: Felicia Flat

We’ve featured uber popular Felicia flat in a number of our roundups — but I don’t think we’ve ever done a Coffee Break on it. If you haven’t seen the shoe in person: this thing has some serious padding. I like the little bow on the top, and it comes in so.many.different.colors and prints and fabrics that there’s something for everyone (if you’ve been wanting a weird specific color like light blue suede or black polka dot, take a look at the options). Right now you can find options as low as $39 during the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale or lucky sizes as low as $29 at Amazon; Zappos also has a ton of options. (If you’re looking at one of the sale options, just a warning: they also come in little girl sizes, so make sure you’re looking at regular women’s sizes!) The shoe is $99-$119 on full price, with many available in sizes 4-13 and in three widths.  Sam Edelman Felicia Flats

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

nordstrom half-yearly sale 2018 - max mara suits on saleI mostly focused on more affordable things in our big roundup of the workwear on sale at the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale — but note that there are a ton of nice designer things. I was going to feature the simple, beautifully cut sheath dress from Max Mara that’s seen here under the blazer — until I realized that both the blazer and the dress were on sale and had tons of sizes left.  *blink blink* Well then. If you’re normally in the Hugo Boss range for suits, you may want to upgrade for prices like these: the blazer is now $713 (was $1190), and the dress is now $417 (was $695).

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):

The Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale: The Best Workwear for Women in the 2018 Sale

nordstrom half-yearly sale for women 2018

The below content is about the 2018 Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale.

I’ve been getting sale alerts for days, and it finally occurred to me: the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale is here! (It officially started this morning, but they started marking things down a day or two ago.) The dresses for work are the main attraction, I think — SO MANY GOOD ONES UNDER $100! — but there are also a bunch of nice blazers on sale. Specific brands of note: there’s lots to love in the sale from Hugo Boss, Boden (!), Tahari, HalogenTheory, Equipment, DvF, Kate Spade New York, and Lewit. Some of these finds may be a little party focused, but if you’re on the hunt or have a very feminine style they sales may be for you: Ted Baker, Maggy London, Adrianna Pappell, and Eliza J.

Good deals on underthings from NatoriHanky Panky, Chantelle, and Spanx – and great deals on workout items from Zella and Beyond Yoga.

One important note: things are selling out quickly in the sale — so if you find something you really like that’s in stock and in your size, you may want to check out quickly rather than let it sit for an hour (or day or two). I inevitably shop for myself while I’m doing these sale roundups and heard sad trombones a few times when things I wanted sold out while they were sitting in my shopping cart, so I just made a few smaller orders instead of one big one.

Anything we’ve previously featured that is now on sale (and still in stock) is tagged here.

Some particular picks for workwear from the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale of 2018, after the jump…

Suit of the Week: Hugo Boss

nordstrom half yearly sale for women 2018 - workwear and suiting for women

2018 Update: Gearing up for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018? Early access starts July 12, 2018 and the sale opens to the public on July 20, 2018 — sign up for our newsletter to get our picks for workwear and beyond! (You can check out some of our more recent Nordstrom sale picks here!)

For busy working women, the suit is often the easiest outfit to throw on in the morning. In general, this feature is not about interview suits for women, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.

I’m allllmost done with my big roundup of the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale for workwear… in the meantime, do note that there are a ton of Hugo Boss suits on sale. This “cozy grey melange fantasy” has all four pieces still in stock in a good range of sizes — some of the other ones we’ve featured recently are also on sale. (In fact, everything we’ve featured recently that is now part of the NHYS sale is tagged here.) They still aren’t cheap, of course — the jacket and dress are both marked down to $418, the skirt is $224, and the pants are $231.
