I was originally going to title this story "A Fashion Editor Walks Into Nordstrom…" but clearly the only walking I'm doing is from my bedroom to the living room where I sit on my computer and shop online. One of my favorite online retailers for everything from beauty products to contemporary designers is Nordstrom. This probably doesn't come as much of a shock to you, but it's true. While I can't really buy the summer wardrobe of my dreams due to the fact that I won't be going much farther than my backyard, my summertime shopping list is hitting a little different this season, but that's something I've come to terms with.
With that said, I scrolled through an embarrassing number of pages on Nordstrom.com and was able to narrow down my ideal summer shopping list to 35 trendy but practical items. From heeled thongs to statement shorts, get ready to shop all the things this fashion editor is eyeing and buying for summer 2020, whatever that may look like.
The perfect pair of thong sandals to wear with just about everything.
I've been obsessing over all things backless for summer 2020, so this beauty is definitely going in my cart.
I think I've included these pants in every Nordstrom story I've written recently, but that's just how much I love them.
If you're going to wear jeans in the summer, I suggest choosing loose ones.
I have a lot of plain black swimsuit bottoms, but this top is really something else.
I'm sorry, but sometimes you just can't take the Orange County out of the girl.
Picture these with a black tank top and chunky sandals. You're welcome.
Long shorts are the one summer trend I plan on truly living in.
I have this bra in black, but summer feels like the best time to spice things up.
Summer jeans have never looked better.
Next up: Here are seven simple summer outfits to throw on when you just can't think.
