I'm a Picky Shopper, and This Is What I'd Buy From Nordstrom for Winter

Street Style

Anyone who has ever attempted to go shopping with me knows how (annoyingly) picky I can be when it comes to buying anything for myself. In fact, I can spend hours in stores and online without finding a single thing I actually want to purchase, whether it’s for an occasion, a new season, or just because. While this trait definitely has its downsides—you don’t want to know how long it took me to find a wedding dress—it also has its benefits.

For starters, I take these stories I write for you, our readers, very seriously as a result. When going through products to include in roundups, I ask myself first if I would spend my own money on something before suggesting it to someone else to buy. Hopefully, this shows (and you like what you’re about to see below). Since we’re on the heels of winter, I decided to comb through one of everyone’s favorite sites and round up the items I would buy for myself if I were in the market for outerwear, dresses, accessories, shoes, and more. Shockingly, I somehow ended up with a whopping 47 finds, all of which I am somehow pretty obsessed with. To see and shop my Nordstrom picks for the season ahead, just keep scrolling.


Puffers are an inevitable part of NYC life, but thankfully, brands are making them more stylish than ever this season.

Leather trenches are one of the season's biggest outerwear trends.

Tackle two trends in one with this houndstooth cape.


That simple sweater you want to wear every day once it's cold.

This color is too good to pass up.

Anything from Khaite is the ultimate goal this season.

I'm taking notes on how cute this looks with a miniskirt.

As I write this, our editor Lauren is sitting next to me wearing this shirt, so I mean it when I say it's good.


Nothing gives you that perfectly tucked-in look quite like a bodysuit.

Aren't Henleys just the best?


Lingerie-inspired details will never go out of style.


I'm all about utility-inspired details right now.

I love the Western touch on these.

It's hard to find skirts that look this good with boots.

Bag, Accessories, & More

The whole shoulder-bag thing is still going strong.

You'll never want to take this off.

Bags with black hardware are the most versatile, if you ask me.

Why shouldn't your bra be as on trend as your outfit?


These were my best friends last winter.

I have these in black, and they're one of the comfiest pairs of shoes I own, period.

White boots are risky but totally worth it.

People are always asking me for help finding actually cute waterproof boots, and these are the perfect example.

Even I am not immune to the appeal of cute and cozy house slippers.

Knee-high boots are trending harder than you can even imagine right now.

If I only buy one item in this roundup, it might be these.

I definitely do not need these, but that doesn't mean I don't want them.

I can just imagine how good these will look with straight-leg jeans.
