I Live in L.A.—30 New Nordstrom Items I'm Buying for the Perfect Summer Wardrobe



There's no denying it—Los Angeles has its own aesthetic, and I completely buy into it. It's the perfect mix of casual and elevated, and my favorite time to experiment with the L.A. vibe is definitely in the summer. Usually, I try to stick to a pretty tight uniform consisting of denim shorts, white ribbed tanks, strappy sandals, and fun jewelry. Since my summer clothes have been tucked away for quite a few months now, it's finally time to figure out what needs replenishing and which trends I want to incorporate into my rotation this season. 

So where did I do all this shopping, you might ask? Nordstrom, of course. Currently, Nordstrom is primed and ready for a stylish summer, and I wanted to snatch up the best pieces before anyone else does. Below, you will see a list of the items I think are the most noteworthy as a fashion editor slash Los Angeles dweller. Whether you live in the sunny city or not, this summer shopping list is classic enough to fit many style tastes and preferences. Just keep scrolling; you'll see.
