I originally wanted to buy some 27 items from the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale, but somehow got that down to a reasonable 6. Read more to see which items became Nordstrom Keepers.


Online shopping is always a bit of a gamble, because you’re unsure if the items will fit, if the color/material is right or if the quality is up to snuff. Usually you can get a good idea by who you’re ordering from (Nordstrom vs. Forever21) and the price.

Nordstrom Keepers

I was pretty confident in my Nordstrom cart though. Nordstrom is very consistent with descriptions, photos and price/quality exceptions. So it was no surprise to me that I kept all 6 items I ordered from they Half Yearly Sale! Isn’t it wonderful when that happens?

Black Ruffle Top

The ruffle top is really soft and isn’t as long as it looks. The ruffle adds just enough interest, while still being black.

Distressed Jean Shorts

Call me crazy for buying jeans with holes in them, but I am obsessed with these. Don’t be surprised if I end up living in them this summer. When I wear them I feel like I look like one my favorite fashion Instagram accountshappilygrey.

But in reality I look like this:

[Insert the crying laughing emoji here]

Now that I’m no longer in college can I graduate from this small flimsy mirror to an adult one? Like this one from West Elm or even this one from IKEA? I digress.

Gold Hoop Earrings

The gold hoop earrings are a classic case of you-get-what-you-paid-for, but I’m still not going to return them. I already wore them when I went to Commonwealth Bistro in Covington, KY. Let me tell you how weird it was to put Kentucky into my GPS, but the Covington area is super cute! Digressing again.

Two Layer Ring

Simliar to the earrings, this ring was also a low-cost and low-quality piece. I still really like it and it actually fits my finger! I have really small fingers so it’s hard for me to find inexpensive occasional rings.

Pendant Necklace

I love this necklace! Colorful accessories like this are a great way to add some interest to an black wardrobe. 🙂

Black Wedges

The last Nordstrom Keeper are these basic black wedge sandals. They are Söffts so they are cushioned and almost guaranteed to be comfortable. Am I turning into an old lady?
