To say we're excited for our three-day weekend would be an understatement. In fact, we're so ready to be OOO that we've already begun planning everything we're going to do the second we clock out. Of course, we've scheduled ample time to shop all the Presidents' Day sales, especially Nordstrom Rack's. From Feb. 14 through Feb. 19 at 11:59 p.m. PST, the retailer is knocking an additional 40 percent off select clearance items, which means you can save more than 86 percent off all the styles you need to get through winter and all the outfits you want to rock come spring (which is less than 40 days away!). Considering the 2024 Nordstrom Rack Presidents Day Sale includes more than 1,100 items, it's a lot to wade through, so we've culled the best of the best for you.

From Sam Edelman leather Whitney flats ($120; $60) to Levi's Wedgie straight leg jeans ($80; $70), here are 13 styles you won't regret buying.

And even with all that going on, it's also got pockets! What more can you ask for?

Slingback flats are our vibe this year, and plenty of PureWow readers agree. How do we know? Well, they've been flocking to this pointed-toe pair that puts a sophisticated twist on last year's popular ballet look. They're constructed from genuine leather, which is known to stretch over time and conform to your foot (so it may be a good idea to order a half-size smaller, as many buyers have done), but they also boast a stretchy ankle strap that buyers say is super comfortable. One reviewer raves, "As a person who does not like a [traditional] ballet flat style, this is the perfect answer to that trend with something a bit more sleek, with the same comfort and ease."

Levi's are some of the most reliable jeans you can own, and this pair, designed with just a touch of elastane (in line with our go-to 3 percent rule for the most flattering stretch), is no exception. Boasting a high waist with a subtle ripped-out knee and frayed hems, these straight-leg jeans are effortlessly cool. Plus, they're designed to hug your bum for the most flattering fit, while still maintaining a relaxed look. Sounds like they're about to become our new faves.

If you live in New York, we don't need to tell you why you need to buy these cute and casual boots ASAP (uh, we just had a snowstorm), so here's why you should buy them regardless of where you live: According to reviewers, you can wear them every day since they're lightweight and comfortable—featuring cushioning that supposedly absorbs impact and distributes weight—making them a great pick whether you're hiking, treading through snow or running errands. Still, one buyer's review is what really sold us: "I wore these almost every day in Switzerland. They were very comfortable, and kept my feet very warm and dry while wearing in the snow for hours at a time."

This long knit cardigan will definitely come in handy as the weather transitions. According to buyers, it really is as comfortable and cozy as it looks, and it can keep you warm on chillier spring days. However, we wouldn't blame you if you bought it just for the relaxed dropped shoulders and breezy side slits. According to reviewers, it has the potential to become the ultimate transitional layer—just note that it's meant to have an oversized fit, so size down if you want it to be a bit more snug.

There's nothing worse than soggy Ugg slippers that you've worn to death, are we right? Needless to say, if yours are 2 years old or more, now is the time to upgrade while this classic pair is up for grabs for just under $50. Not only are they lined in UGGplush, but they're moisture-wicking, so if you run hot, have no fear. BTW, their wool blend is supposed to feel like genuine shearling, and since they have a grippy sole, you can totally wear them outdoors when you just need to grab the mail.

Want to step up your jewelry game in 2024? Don't miss this crazy good deal on a Swarovski crystal studded band set from Adornia. The brand is going viral on TikTok for its affordable designs that look similar to fan favorites at Van Cleef & Arpels and Kendra Scott. But specifically, when it comes to these supposedly cute and dainty water-resistant rings, buyers can't stop talking about how expensive and elegant they look despite being made of metal. Plus, they love stacking them and wearing them separately, so could it be the versatile set of your dreams? For $33, you can't go wrong.

This bra (from one of PureWow readers' favorite lingerie brands) will surely add a touch of romance to your lingerie drawer. But it's not just the pretty lace accents and non-padded cups that have us adding it to our cart. Buyers rave about this bra's ability to keep everything looking smooth and supported in the bust area and around their back (just thank its nylon and spandex material), and apparently, it's stretchy in all the right places (so it "does not feel like some medieval torture device," one reviewer adds). In other words, this is not just a sexy bra—it's also as functional and comfortable as it gets.

If you're anything like us, you can't resist a cute, packable raincoat, especially when it's on sale for $100. We may just end up buying two since the polyester and nylon jacket has all the features we love and then some, including a detachable toggle-drawstring hood, a snap-down storm flap and on-seam pockets to store small essentials like your phone and keys. More impressively, the lightweight style can be easily packed into the included travel pouch, so you can conveniently carry it and pack it away when it stops raining and the sun comes out.

These sporty kicks are our go-to sneakers in the spring and summer. Not just because they're wonderfully supportive with a cushy, foam insole that our feet are *huge* fans of, but also because they have a 1.5-inch platform that offers up some extra height (sans any discomfort). Don't believe us? Here's what one fellow shopper has to say: "[They're] very stylish, go with everything and in some ways can actually be dressed up or down! Great shoe—I highly recommend it."

There's no question whether we're stocking up on this flowy maxi dress before our upcoming vacays. After scrolling through tons of reviews (of which there are more than 2,000), we can be sure that it *won't* make us look like a big tent. Because as one buyer says, "[Whomever] designed this knew something about the female body shape. The dress is flowing, but actually hangs on the body very nicely (it has a shape to it)." Better yet, the rayon style has adjustable straps, a sleek V-neck and, yes, side-seam pockets, making it all the more versatile and functional. It's a spring and summer must-have if we do say so ourselves.

  • Size Range: S/M to 1X/2X

We love a good puff sleeve, and if you do, too, you won't want to waste any time scooping up this dress that is sure to turn heads this spring. Depending on your height, it may hit a few inches below your knees, so it'll look great with boots if that's your vibe. Just be sure to hand wash the dress to keep the polyester and rayon material feeling good and flaring even better.

Dreaming of wearing boots with dresses in a few weeks? Allow these sleek leather Chelsea boots to replace your current pair. They feature the style's signature elastic goring on both sides, a lug sole for ultimate walkability and a pull tab for easy on-and-off. Not to mention, one buyer swears they don't look “Ronald McDonald-ish” on big feet. "These boots not only look slim, but they are also very comfortable. I wore them out from the store after buying them [on] a trip and wore [them] all night and all day the next day and not one blister or pain," they added. Um, say no more.
