A Few Favorites from Nordstrom Sale for Travel


Happy weekend it's Memorial Day here in America and officially summer's kickoff. I've been just completely consumed with graduations and trip planning,  so I've done some shopping this week in preparation for graduation ceremonies and travel. I stopped in Nordstrom briefly yesterday and forgot the Half-Yearly is on. It's a good time to get those bits needed for summer. Loads of pretty dresses and sandals on sale. I always like getting a few new things for a trip and summer, so this sale always happens at just the right time.

 The Clinique Gift is out as usual and just in time for a trip with it's bag and small sizes. I also found this super lightweight  tote . To me this is perfect carry-on for my trip to Europe as it weighs virtually nothing, can take some abuse and its big! Really big. Big enough for another bag, books, magazines etc.


 I also got this black laser cut tote that can fold up in it and when I get to my destination, will become my day to day bag, big enough for shopping, etc, but not as huge as the carry-on. 

Both great prices right now and I don't need to sacrifice any of my leather bags which take a beating on these kinds of trips by being overstuffed, dragged through customs and security, nasty bathrooms and more.


  I appreciate that they're vegan and look as nice as leather. I'm also thinking of getting this cute white fatigue jacket for the trip as well. I know it's cool in Europe in June and this with a scarf this will be just right and light to pack.



Planning for or shopping for any trips?

Other nice ideas for travel this knit blazer , these super cute black flat sandals , and another great buy is this blue Burberry trench. I bought mine 6 years ago at this sale. I always keep my eye out for cool ones and this is a particularly cute one with oversize buttons and cool shape. 

If you have a fun occasion coming soon check out the sale the dresses. I particularly love this long sleeved shift and this mod shape and this twist back shift is easy for warm evenings.

  1. You're so smart not to drag your nice leather bags through an overseas trip. They never come back looking the same, do they? Love that white jacket and hope you get it. Sooooo fun to run into you at Nordstroms shopping. We only had about an hour which I spent in cosmetics mostly, so I really need to go back and look around more!!

    Happy graduation to both the boys! Wow, how did they grow up so fast?!

  5. Loving that white fatigue jacket.....what a great find and I'm sure you will use it for years! I hope you end up having warmer weather in Europe this time around. Love the bag choices! I always seem to come home from a trip with one strap falling off due to overpacking it with a million things! Those look pretty durable. Have fun and I can't wait to hear about it! April xo
