When it comes to shopping, I have a champagne taste and a beer pocket. I love the quality and durability of expensive brands—but not their price tags. So, instead of shopping at the mall, I thrift. And instead of Nordstrom, I go with Nordstrom Rack.
As I was scouring (read: procrastinating) the internet for a few new additions to my summer wardrobe, I found Nordstrom Rack’s Summer Getaway Sale. All summer essentials, from cover-ups to maxi dresses to sandals, are up to 89% off.
I found the best deals included in the retailer’s sales so that you can scroll less and shop more. Don’t miss out! These brands won’t stay this cheap forever.
First, The Essentials: Your Sunnies
Besides my phone and wallet, my sunglasses are the most essential item in my bag. I’m not a hat-wearer, nor am I a fan of being blinded by the sun every time I step outside. So, I was ecstatic to see that Nordstrom Rack had classic Ray-Bans for up to 57% off.
Ray-Ban Wayfarer 58mm Sunglasses
Originally $164 (57% off)
Would I normally laugh at buying sunglasses over $150? Yes. Have I always wanted a pair of real Ray-Bans? Also yes. Now, I (and you) get the best of both worlds. And thanks to these shades’ timeless style, you can rest assured these sunnies will always be en vogue.
For Poolside Relaxing: Smocked Flares
Usually, I have no qualms about switching out my winter and summer wardrobes. But I do miss the ability to wear my favorite leggings without burning up. Who wants to wear leggings when relaxing by the pool? No one, that’s who.
Smocked Flare Pants
Originally $135 (Up to 85% off)
Luckily, I found these ultra-soft, viscose pants from We Wore What. The elastic-smocked waist and flared leg make these pants as comfy as they are stylish. Plus, they come in three summery colors, including off-white, yellow, and powder blue.
The Perfect Cover-Up: Printed Duster
Speaking of poolside relaxation—this pastel snake print duster is the perfect cover-up for hot, sunny days. Thanks to the featherlight fabric and front-tie closure, you get just enough coverage without feeling stuffy.
Snake Print Ruffle Sleeve Duster
Originally $120 (83% off)
The bold snake print is a gorgeous blend of soft blues, purples, and pinks. Plus, it’s a whopping 83% off—normally, this duster retails for over $100. Don’t mind me while I wear this cover-up with smocked flare pants every day this summer.
For Adventuring: Drawstring Shorts
The best summer vacay shorts are versatile enough to wear to the park, museum, shopping center, or backyard. For such a tall order, look no further than Shelli Segal’s drawstring pocket shorts. These high-waisted shorts were originally $80, but you can snag them now for under $15.
Drawstring Pocket Shorts
Originally $79 (82% off)
The breezy linen shorts feature an elasticized drawstring waist and slant pockets. Not only are these shorts versatile enough to wear all day long, but they’re so comfy, you’ll actually want to.
From Brunch To Dinner: Gauze Maxi
A neutral, breezy maxi dress like this gauze dress from Lovestitch is a must-have for any summer vacation. The lightweight, breathable fabric is comfy enough to wear to a sunny patio brunch. Meanwhile, the expert design drapes perfectly over curves for a stunning, flirty date night look.
Gauze Maxi Dress
Originally $88 (65% off)
This effortlessly chic dress is available in 21 colors to match anyone’s taste. But most importantly, this dress is currently 65% off. And with a four-star rating and hundreds of positive reviews, the gauze maxi dress seems well worth the $30.
Beach To Boardwalk (And Back): Kailey Slides
Even a small sale is better than none, and these Kailey slide sandals from Steve Madden are no exception. While these sandals boast the smallest sale at only 24% off, they’ll pay themselves off in no time with their versatility and durability.
Kailey Slide Sandal
Originally $59.95 (24% off)
These straightforward, no-fuss slide sandals are available in three colors: classic black, cognac, and vibrant citron. The leather upper is soft enough to stay comfy all day but firm enough to keep your feet secure. And thanks to a contoured footbed, you can comfortably wear these sandals all day long.
The Nordstrom Rack Summer Getaway sale won’t last forever, and many items are selling out fast. I already snagged mine before they’re gone forever—what are you waiting for?
