I act as a personal stylist for my friends given my role as a fashion editor. Yep, I'm the go-to person whenever someone in my crew needs help putting an outfit together or a few shopping tips. On that note, one of my friends messaged me that she has about $200 to spend on a few new spring and summer items and wanted my tips on what to consider for the season.

Nordstrom is one of her favorite stores (it's also one of mine), so I sent her three items I think she'd like. The items in question are modern and forward, but also highly versatile. As a preview, a pair of very-right-now capri pants (similar to the style featured above) made the list. Keep scrolling to check out my suggested items (the first three pieces in the edit). For further inspiration, I also rounded up other affordable finds I love at Nordstrom.
