I’ve spent a lot of time recently going through the Nordstrom Half Yearly sale items (see my roundups of clothing, footwear and handbags, and some extra picks), but there are also many bargains to be had in the Memorial Day sales at other stores. Here are a few that struck my eye. 

Many of these items are available in an assortment of colours. 


  • Gap Slip-On Sneakers: I find them a little comfier than Vans. The tan polka dot is particularly fun. 

Banana Republic



  • Boden Erin Dress: A casual fit ’n flare in a machine washable viscose. 
  • Boden Amelie Dress: A Summer sweater dress in a cotton and wool blend. Ideal for the short waisted lass.
  • Boden Gingham Shirt Dress: A ‘50s style that’s 100% cotton, sleeved and machine washable. Waist defining and quite casual. It’s a bold pattern so consider yourself warned. 

There is lots more on sale at Zappos and Boden in particular. Have a great long weekend.
