Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one editor, staffer, or influencer shares their top 30 must-haves or current wish-list items.
Even in my best attempt to enjoy the long weekend away from work, I found myself wandering into Nordstrom to do a little market research. While I walked away empty-handed, there are a few pieces I regret leaving behind (including this insane Staud dress). What can I say? I'm excited for spring to begin. The turn of the season always signals better weather, outfit freedom, and a fresh batch of styles I've been waiting to test out. But as a selectively trendy dresser, I'm always after the pieces that fit easily into my personal style. Currently, I'm testing the waters by pairing a sequined top with relaxed jeans, a rosette choker with a staple slip dress, and metallic footwear with a classic suit set. It's always a goal of mine to find a balance between wardrobe staples and playful seasonal trends, and I think the following Nordstrom items accomplish just that. Keep scrolling to shop the arrivals I'm most excited about.
