Summer's return is already posing challenges for my wardrobe, so it's time to get creative. I simply can't last a day in anything more than an easy top and bottom or a one-and-done dress. But that doesn't mean my style has to suffer. This time of year, I take chances with bolder, more colorful separates and rely heavily on accessories to personalize my looks. Of course, Nordstrom has everything I need to beat the heat in style. Below you'll find all the items in my shopping cart, including striped wide-leg pants, gold shell earrings, and a woven raffia handbag. Let summer commence.
