I don't know about you, but I love doing a major audit of my wardrobe just in time for spring. I take stock of the pieces that I've actually enjoyed wearing over the past year, and I get rid of the ones that I didn't reach for as much. It's also the perfect time to add in some fresh selections that make it easy to mix and match outfits all year long. As a fashion editor in my 20s, I recognize how quickly a closet update can add up, so I've decided to clue you all in on the affordable Nordstrom finds on my personal wish list. 

Yes, you heard right. I've dug through Nordstrom's wide selection, and I've identified seriously gorgeous pieces that are all under $160. From versatile staples and everyday basics to fun statement pieces and cool accessories, there's a wide variety of fashionable picks that will give my closet a wallet-friendly refresh.
