The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is as much a kickoff to summer as the official summer solstice on June 21 itself, and the major retailer is back and better than ever. This year, Nordstrom is offering up to 60 percent off apparel, comfy shoes, and must-have travel gear across the site, making for the perfect time to give your wardrobe the refresh it needs. I’m a sucker for a good sale, and considering I have a number of summer trips lined up for the coming months I’m on the hunt for breathable outfits and supportive shoes to take with me on my journeys.
We know that parsing through the more than 8,000 new deals on the site may seem daunting, so we went ahead and rounded up the 11 sales that are actually worth shopping if you’re looking for the best of the best in lightweight pants, spacious tote bags, stylish bathing suits, and more. But you won’t want to wait too long to shop because while prices currently start at just $12, stock is limited and the sale ends on June 5.
Caslon Wide Leg Pull-on Linen Blend Pants
Breathable, relaxed-fitting pants are some of my favorite summertime staples for travel, and these wide-legged linen trousers from Caslon are well-suited for airport days and sightseeing excursions — and they’re 33 percent off. With sizes ranging from XS to XL (including petite), these elastic-waist pants are the perfect, effortless piece to throw into your suitcase for any trip you have on the horizon.

Dr. Scholl’s Madison Slip-on Sneaker
Slip-on sneakers are some of the easiest shoes to wear if you’re hurrying through TSA or planning to enjoy a day of touring a new city, and these Dr. Scholl’s shoes are guaranteed to be the comfiest sneakers in your suitcase. Not only are they made with a unique insole that offers three different zones of support, but they’re also breezy enough to do away with foot sweat this summer.
