I have good news, and I have good news: There's a big Nordstrom sale going on right now, and it's chock-full of items to make this your most stylish summer yet. Now for the details. The sale in question is Nordstrom's Half-Yearly Sale, and over 15k (yes, 15,000) items are marked down by up to 50%. Among those thousands of items, you'll find a slew of summer items that will see you through until roughly October.

As a fashion editor, my MO (well, one of them) is to provide you with shopping and outfit inspiration to live your best life in. It's easy to do that with Nordstrom, which has an especially vast assortment of summer fashion items for the choosing at a variety of price points. 

I say this a lot, but sales can be overwhelming, especially Nordstrom sales, so I'm here to make it a little easier for you. I chose 35 items I'd order from the Half-Yearly Sale even if I didn't work in fashion. (Translation: They're wearable, versatile, and trend-forward without being too trendy.) Scroll to shop them all before June 6 when the sale ends.

Next up, the under-$100 items Nordstrom can barely keep in stock.
