Ladies I hope you are all having a lovely long weekend, and Memorial Day. One of the fun things about holidays for us fashionistas, aside from the time we get to spend with family & friends, is the sales at various stores. One of my very favorites of those sales is the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale. Today I’ll share with you my best of picks of the #NSale, and an outfit featuring one of my most-loved purchases from it.


There are SO MANY lovely items in the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sales. To keep it true to the name of this series, I am sharing the best pieces at the most amazing deals. The best part is  they are all under $100.

One of my best finds at the Nordstrom sale, is this Frenchi Tank. I bought it in a couple colors including the teal I showed above. This will be the perfect basic to throw over so many bottoms in summer. I also picked up the Sun & Shadow Camisole in the pretty blush color you can see in my best picks. Isn’t it really cute?

I am re-sharing the Lush Maxi. ( I’ve featured it once before when I initially bought it) This dress comes in beautiful colors, and is super comfortable ladies. You wouldn’t want to miss it, especially on sale. Take a look at the Jade version – so gorgeous!

I think no summer shopping would be complete without great accessories. I was so excited to find the Kendra Scott earrings on sale. The bright green would pair perfectly with many summer outfits. I also can’t get enough of the Vince Camuto embellished flat sandals. Arent’t they wonderfully glam?

Now onto the look I am sharing today with this uniquely designed Leith skirt that I adored from the moment I spotted it.


Let me give you a little background on how this outfit came to be. I purchased this striped PopBasic top a couple weeks ago. If you’ve been reading TheBoxQueen for a while, you may remember that I like print mixing, especially when it’s stripes & flowers. To pair with my striped boat neck top, I was looking for an original flower print skirt.


When I saw this skirt I found more than what I was looking for. Not only was it a flower print, original piece, but it was also actually three dimensional. The tulle layer is covered with a confetti of colorful flowers. The skirt is also lined. I was immediately taken by this piece, and purchased it right away.



STYLE TIP: When you are pattern mixing the secret is in paying attention to details. You need to find one common feature/theme in your outfit to ground, and balance the busyness happening with the prints. It’s also a good idea to figure out the prints you like together. I always think stripes and flowers, or stripes and polka dots work lovely paired.

When I found this skirt, I noticed that it had blue mixed in the rainbow of colors. My cobalt striped top came to my mind, and I thought I could also wear my navy Mary Jane heels. The common element in my outfit balancing the patterns is the color blue.

    Love your outfit, and the idea of mixing prints. I’ll have to give it a try. Cannot say enough good things about the Lush maxi in Jade- I recently purchased it, and it’s a beautiful color. 🙂

    • Theboxqueen

      Cheryl I love print mixing especially with prints that go nicely together. I think stripes and flowers, flowers and polka dots and sometimes polka dots and stripes go super nice together. 🙂 You need to try and let me know what you think. First starting with subtle prints help a lot. Isn’t the Lush Maxi gorgeous. The jade color is such a stunner. Happy Thursday lovely. XOXO, Elif
