Even if it weren't part of my job, my screen time designated to scrolling through Nordstrom would be alarming at best. I can't know for sure, and it changes all the time, but I'd estimate that at least five hours per week are spent devouring whatever's just dropped on the retailer's ever-evolving website. All that's to say that at any given time, I usually have a pretty good handle on what new arrivals are great, good, and just okay. And since my latest sweep—which spanned every brand, from Prada to Levi's, and every category, from everyday basics to runway footwear—resulted in a short but very sweet selection of items that err far more on the great side than even the good one, I felt it was only right for me to share my findings. After all, I don't spend all of that time on shopping just for myself.

Of the thousands of items I sorted through on this particular spring-focused online-shopping excursion, five in particular struck me as the best in the bunch. Of the five, the priciest one is still under $400 and the most affordable just $59. So no, you won't have to break the bank in order to secure one of an unofficial Nordstrom expert's top five items of the season. See for yourself which pieces made the cut by scrolling through the list below. Maybe, just maybe, you'll find them as impressive and buy-worthy as I did.
