    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    Summer is coming to an end and I am very happy about it. Why? 1) Fall is approaching, and 2) THE NORDSTROM END-OF-SUMMER SALE IS HERE.


    I'm talking super savings on everything! Surplice jumpsuits, gorgeous tote bags, embroidered babydoll dresses, stretchy skinny jeans, ankle boots that belong in my closet...

    You get it. A whole banana bunch of everything is on sale.

    Here are some of our favorite finds the sale:

    Price: $64.66 (originally $98, available in sizes S-XL and in petite sizes)

    2. A faux leather tote bag large enough to house all of your day-to-day necessities. Wallets, romance novels, headphones, old receipts, loose change, three lipsticks because how can you choose just one, etc.

    Price: $19.49 (originally $39, available in two colors)

    3. A floral maxi dress because while summer may be over, is it so bad to start preparing for summer 2019? I think not, my friends.

    Price: $53.40 (originally $89, available in sizes 0X-3X and in five colors)

    5. A slouchy henley top trying to negotiate for more PTO days. It's sick of being worn every single day. It needs a break every once in a while.

    Price: $29.40 (originally $49, available in sizes XS-XXL and in six colors)

    6. A surplice jumpsuit currently playing peek-a-boo with the below model's torso. Slightly immature, but let's ignore that warning sign, shall we?

    Price: $38.90 (originally $65, available in sizes 24-34)

    8. A striped v-neck tee you can no longer call "basic." It's sick of hearing that word. It doesn't wear Uggs, it hates pumpkin spice.

    Price: $10.20 (originally $17, available in sizes 1X-4X)

    9. A button-front midi dress that belongs in your closet right meow. Would ya just LOOK at that gorgeous colorblock!?
