You all know how much I love a good stripe. Between the tees, button-downs, and many-a-dress, the simple pattern is one that dominates a large portion my closet. Thankfully, there are plenty of different designs happening with stripes so not everything I own looks exactly alike (though I’m a firm believer that one can never have too many stripe tees – no matter how similar they might be). This skirt is the perfect example of what I’m talking about. The stripes here provide the ideal background for a floral lace overlay. Not only do I love the shape (stripe skirts look best in a pencil silhouette, in my opinion), but I love how the stripes offer a bold contrast to the feminine lace. The black and white pattern gives the lace an edge, toning down the sweetness of the florals. Here’s the best part: this skirt – and many, many others – is 40% off.

Starting today, you can save up to 40% on all kinds of amazing things (this, this, this, and these) in Nordstrom’s Half Yearly Sale. This is one of the best sales they do. I mean… everything is marked down – from denim to dresses (this little Kate Spade shift would be perfect for an outdoor wedding and it’s under $200 now) to shoes and jewelry. (Side note: this necklace is a must-have.) Even my favorite pajamas are 40% off. This adorable beach wrap? $16. I told you. It’s everything. Better hurry though: the good stuff is sure to go fast.
