Our Editors Told Me Their Nordstrom Spring Shopping Lists and I Want Everything

Something that I know you probably already know is that we love Nordstrom here at Who What Wear. But is there anyone among us who doesn't? Honestly, if it was the only retailer on the internet, we'd probably be okay. There, you'll find everything from Prada's latest It shoes to a leash for your dog to a ridiculously soft blanket. So yeah, our Nordstrom carts are consistently full.

Our Nordstrom carts are especially full at the start of a new season, and with spring mere days away (finally), our shopping lists are reflective of the warm weather to come. I fully trust my fellow Who What Wear editors to discover the best stuff on the internet, and Nordstrom is no exception, so I asked them to spill their top wish list items, and they're all highly covetable. Scroll to potentially add them to your own Nordstrom carts. (Trust me—we'd be flattered).

Shop Allyson's list:

"This is one of those tops that would look cool (and completely different" with low-rise and high-rise bottoms. Click through to see for yourself."

"I'm not exaggerating when I say that I haven't been able to stop thinking about these since I first saw them. The rosette, the pretty color, and the walkable heel are my idea of perfection."

"I'm prepping for shorts season by ordering the newest pair from Agolde. The length and the wash couldn't be better."

Shop Bobby's list:

"I'm telling all of my friends to consider these pretty sandals. They look so expensive, but ring in under $60!"

"A longline trench coat will make any outfit feel all the chicer."

"Just wait until you see the back of this top."

Shop Nicole's list:

"It's just the perfect little going-out top."

"I already own these in black but I'm thinking I might need them in white, too."

"'I'm in need of a pair of non-black pants and these seem like the ones for me."

Shop Judith's list:

"I have this button-down in beige stripe and it’s the perfect relaxed silhouette and fit. I can’t wait to get it in classic white—guaranteed it’ll be the most versatile piece in my spring wardrobe."

"I’m all about silver accessories for spring. These chic sandals are currently in my cart."

"Vibrant, chili-pepper red hues are huge this year, and I’m leaning into the trend with this chic and versatile knit."

Shop Sierra's list:

"I'm already plotting a collection of cotton poplin fairytale dresses that I will live in this summer. This one is high up on my list. I love the charming scoop neck, fluffy straps, and elegant buttons on the back."

"I'm trying to upgrade my morning and evening routines and a smart alarm clock will do just that. I'm setting a boundary with myself to keep my phone in another room while sleeping and also love the idea of a gentle wake-up call. Spring cleaning is definitely happening and this update on my home will be the perfect finishing touch."

Shop Kristen's list:

"I love the lines of this off-the-shoulder dress—it's perfect for some upcoming events on my calendar."

"The Khaite belt I plan on wearing with all of my denim this spring."

"How I plan on getting a jumpstart on the red color trend from the F/W 23 runways."

Shop Eliza's list:

"I've been prioritizing fitted silhouettes as opposed to oversize ones more and more lately, so this COS poplin shirt is an obvious spring buy for me."

"Ever since Saint Laurent debuted its spring 2023 collection in September, I've thought about wrist cuffs and bangles constantly. I love the idea of styling them on top of tissue-thin sleeves and generally styling them in strategic, unexpected ways."

"I used to severely dislike snake print and really all animal prints when it comes to fashion, but leave it to Khaite to change my mind about them completely."

Shop Indya's list:

"To me this fragrance transcends just being a bottle of parfum—it's a whole experience! I first bought it before my trip to Italy last June, and now every time I get a whiff of this I feel the entire essence of summer in my body. If you enjoy neroli or deep complex scents, this is for you."

"I can already tell this warm weather season will be devoted to flirty midi dresses like this, and I'm here for it."

"Buckles are on the rise—on clothes, on shoes, on bags. Leave it to By Far to make this 2000s trend digestible for 2023."

Shop Anna's list:

"I can't stop staring at this updated version of Tory Burch's Lee Radziwill bag that features an oblong, cat-eye shape."

"For that authentic '90s revival shape."

"I've been surprised with how much tailored vests have stuck around. The elongated front here makes it look particularly forward."

"From the cutout heel shape to the tactful use of hardware, these are 10/10 perfect sandals. No notes."

Shop Ana's list:

"Unpopular opinion incoming: I love Birkenstocks' iconic Arizona slide. As the weather heats up in New York City, I'm storing my boots to make room for the amount of spring sandals I'll be purchasing this year. At the top of my list? The brand's elevated collaboration with Staud. It feels chic in a way that only Birkenstock sandals could be chic, while still remaining comfortable enough to wear while trekking across the city."

"I got a sample of Parfums de Marly's latest fragrance last month and I haven't been able to stop smelling it. Now that my teenie bottle is running out, I'm itching to get the full-sized version. Notes of mandarin, white peach, and and orange flower make it perfect for me to smell all spring long."

"Spring is the season I come alive when it comes to hosting. I moved in with my partner in the winter to an apartment with an incredible patio— a massive rarity in New York City. As a result, the only thing on my mind is spring and summer cocktail recipes for the inevitable gig of hosting duties I'll undertake once the weather warms up. Unlike my curated closet made up of thoughtful buys, all of my kitchen and serveware is made up of fun, impulse purchases I know will spark joy in my new home. Case in point, this sunshine yellow architectural jug from the MoMA Design Store. Not only am I planning on making a mean Aperol Spritz when the time comes in it, but it's the perfect color to put my spring tulips in, too."

Shop Copelyn's list:

"Black-and-white animal prints match everything and cow print is one of my favorite playful prints to spice up any look, even a white T-shirt and jeans. This medium shoulder bag is also the perfect size for everyday."


"With so many upcoming weddings to attend, I'm eyeing a spring dress that is versatile for casual and formal occasions. This voluminous pink dress feels dramatic and sweet at the same time."


"I love the dichotomy of this pretty pendant necklace with an organically-shaped pearl and kitschy embellishments. This twist on a classic pendant necklace layers perfectly with my everyday gold chain."
