After months, weeks, and some extremely long days, Nordstrom's highly anticipated and long-running Half-Yearly Sale is here at last. I, for one, have spent all that time planning out what to buy. On the one hand, sales are the perfect opportunity to stock up on basics, a category that Nordstrom truly excels in. On the other, discounts and deals also make it possible to finally buy those trend-forward or investment pieces that you've had your eye on forever but could never quite pull the trigger on.
Personally, I prefer to spend sale season at Nordstrom doing a little bit of both. Because of that, I went ahead and scoured the entirety of the sale, pulling out the best splurge and anti-trend buys and rounding them up below. That way, whichever road you choose to go down during Nordstrom's Half-Yearly Sale—or if you decide to go my route and do both simultaneously—you'll be able to easily snatch up everything you want before someone else does.
