I'm an Avid Nordstrom Shopper—Here's What I'm Snapping Up for Summer

Those who know me well, know that my weaknesses have always been pastries, shoes, and Nordstrom sales (in more or less that order)—and when it comes to the latter, I consider myself a bit of a pro at unearthing the absolute best pieces from the multi-brand retailer before they sell out. I'm an avid Nordstrom shopper, you see. I could tell you practically every brand it carries; I can navigate its website faster than you can say "add to cart"; and I write about the retailer so often that I can spot a best-seller a mile off. Lucky for me (and you!), Nordstrom's currently having major markdowns through May and June, which means it's the perfect time to score some chic new pieces for summer and beyond.

Below, I'm sharing the must-have pieces I'm snapping up for the new season ahead. Included in the mix are not only majorly discounted must-haves but also some of Nordstrom's just landed new arrivals—from casual, cool basics and trending shorts to fun frocks and sleek sandals. Read on to get your Nordstrom fix for summer.
