I shop for a living, and this is what I'm eyeing from the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale

Score up to 50% off favorites from Tory Burch, Kate Spade, Le Creuset, Ugg and more — deals start at $17.

Start the summer in style — Nordstrom's Half Yearly sale is here just in time to kick off the season! (Nordstrom)

Memorial Day weekend has come and gone, but you can still save big at Nordstrom. The Nordstrom Half-Yearly sale (one of my favorite discount events of the year!) is in full swing and there are nearly 30,000 items on sale for up to 50% off — think huge discounts on brands like Kate Spade, Tory Burch, Ugg, Lancome, Le Creuset and more.

This amount of deals can be overwhelming to sort through, but don't worry — I've rounded up over 20 of the very best discounts to make shopping the big sale a breeze. Even better, some of my must-have Nordstrom Half-Yearly sale deals start at just $17, so you don't have to break the bank to bring home something fabulous. Keep scrolling to check out my list of editor-approved favorites. But don't wait too long to add your picks to your cart — deals this good are bound to sell out.
