I Just Spent Two Weeks in L.A.—Here's What I'm Inspired to Buy for Summer

Despite having been born in L.A. and spending the first 25 years of my life there (compared to only the last five in NYC), it didn't take me long to acclimate to style and dressing in a new city. And sure, New York participates in summer, too, but when it's no longer a year-round vibe, you tend to need a refresher every time the season rolls back around.

I recently spent two weeks back home experiencing temperatures I wasn't quite prepared for in May and spending a lot of time observing those around me, and after that, I think my summer shopping list is ready a little earlier than expected this year. Conveniently, this all coincides with Nordstrom's highly anticipated Half-Yearly Sale, so I figured I'd attempt to do all my shopping among the markdowns. I'm proud to say I was able to find it all, from dainty and fun jewelry to laid-back denim to sandals of both the fancy and simple variety to so many dresses. To see what made the cut, simply keep scrolling.

Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2024, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch Summer House.
