I Made an Under-$160 Nordstrom Wish List, and It's an Absolute Must-See

affordable Nordstrom shopping list



Honestly, leave it to Nordstrom to be stocking pretty much everything on my shopping wish list right now. I'm certainly no stranger to the retailer. If I'm being honest, I tend to make scrolling through its latest arrivals a weekly (if not daily) activity since its vast selection of affordable and trendy fashion items simply never fails me. On my latest visit, I focused my search on our very own Who What Wear line of accessories sold at the retailer, and excuse me for sounding a bit biased, but I kind of want it all.

It's not every day that my personal wish list features such wallet-friendly finds, but when they're this good, it would be a shame if I kept them to myself. In the below list, you'll find my must-haves like expensive-looking croc-effect bags and 2021's coziest trend yet. The best part? Nothing on this list tops $160, so I mean it when I say it's wallet-friendly. Ready to see some of the items and trends that are living rent-free in my head? Continue on for the five things that are topping my affordable Nordstrom shopping list at the moment, and shop my favorite options from Who What Wear for each.

1. Shearling Accessories

Shearling details are popping up everywhere lately, and the shoes and bags are what I'm most excited about. Whether it be the shearling-lined slides that are the definition of laid-back luxe or the cozy textured versions of classic bags, it's the key detail on the coolest accessories right now.

2. Chunky Ankle Boots



They're cool, they're comfortable, and above all, they're practical. What's not to love? Chunky boots are the shoes I'm prioritizing the most right now, and I wear them so much that they've honestly become more of a wardrobe staple than a trend piece to me.

3. Croc-Effect Bags



Regardless of what else you're wearing, adding a croc-effect bag ensures the look is polished and elevated. The best part is that the bags only look expensive, making them a smart buy. 

Meet my new favorite bag. The '90s-inspired shape goes with everything.

4. Sleek Knee-High Boots



I think every closet needs a good pair of knee-high boots, and I have my eye on our popular Cate pair that features a low kitten heel and sleek pointed toe. The only question now is which color to choose…

The kind of shoes that don't just finish the outfit; they are the outfit.

5. Square-Toe Shoes



Take any pair of shoes and add a square toe, and they instantly become modern. Whether it be classic ankle boots, flats, or heeled mules, I always look for a square-toe detail.
