When it comes to summer dressing, casual elegance is my motto. I'm leaning into outfits that look polished and ooze an air of wealth and sophistication yet feel relaxed and effortless. For me, this means opting for elevated basics, sleek silhouettes, and casual-chic fabrics like linen and crisp cotton.

After perusing Nordstrom's site this week during its Anniversary Sale, I found a whole host of separates, dresses, shoes, and more that nail the effortlessly chic aesthetic perfectly. From mesh ballet flats to relaxed button-downs and poplin dresses, I'm sharing 35 pieces that are the epitome of casual elegance. The best part is you can mix and match practically everything on this list to your heart's content!

Keep scrolling for the versatile Nordstrom finds that you'll be reaching for all summer.
