As a professional online shopper and lifestyle writer (yes, I love my job), as well as a lifelong New Yorker with a mom who worked in fashion, I can definitely say I’m good at shopping.
While I thought I wasn’t going to do a lot of shopping this season in an effort to contribute a little more to my 401(k), as soon as the weather hit 60 in New York, I knew that goal was toast. There’s just something about the sun on my skin and replacing my hot lattes with iced coffees that makes me want to refresh my entire wardrobe, house, and bathroom cabinet.
Currently I have about 928 articles in my Nordström basket, from investment cookware to new fashion drops and “It Girl” fragrances. Below, shop the top 20 editor-approved articles from Nordström which I buy in April.
I tried on these colorful strappy heels Sam Edelman in an IRL Nordstrom and they were so comfortable. I couldn’t tell you why I decided not to buy them right away, but I atone for my sins now and take them online.
Listen, I work from home on my laptop all day – I’m a tense, squeaky person. This acupressure mat and the pillow set is made of linen and filled with coconut fiber to prove what claims to be the “most luxurious acupressure session” at home. So, yeah, I’m splurging on overnight shipping for that.
Dagne Dover has created what I consider to be the perfect canvas tote. This extra-large size can hold your laptop, pool towel, Bridgerton box and your keys. In short, everything you need!
4. Ellis Brooklyn SUN FRUITEau de Parfum$30 – $105
A few weeks ago, I decided it was time to become a perfumer, since my perfumes previously consisted only of rollerblades caught in the checkout line Sephora. What better place to start than the fragrance that TikTok has already considered the scent of summer 2022?
Full disclosure: I already own four different pairs of these leggings, but these are definitely the best! Made from 100% recycled water bottles, I guarantee you won’t find a more comfortable pair for doing both a HIIT workout and light stretching than these from Girlfriend Collective. Also, my collection lacks a nice neutral navy blue.
6. Dior Addict Lipstick$35
While I patiently wait for the Dior Addict Lip Glow Oil to restock, I invest in this brand new lipstick. I also officially decided that peach and coral lips would be in style this summer. No, I don’t make the rules.
A cottagecore white mini dress for spring (and summer)? Innovative, I know.
Speaking of summer, it’s time to change up your old skincare routine. I have oily and very acne prone skin, so when the weather warms up I have to replace it with a lighter gel based moisturizer. I’ve heard so many amazing things about this hyaluronic acid moisturizer from Youth to the People and can’t wait to try it.
For very obvious reasons, I’ve added this to my cart. I advise you to do the same.
ten. BYREDO Blanche Eau de Parfum$196 – $276
With white rose, violet, and sandalwood tones, I’m set to die for with this fresh, clean scent from BYREDO.
11. BYREDO Blanche Body Milk$65
As we all know that perfume lasts longer on well hydrated skin (yes, it’s true!), I obviously also take BYREDO perfume body lotion match. Your daughter is doing everything she can to avoid smelling like the NYC subway this summer.
By anyone who wears clothes, Kimberly Noel Kardashian is believed to have created the most comfortable and best-fitting bodysuit ever. Plus, there’s no better summer basic than a sleeveless bodysuit – and this khaki green color is so trendy right now.
Every time I see this Charlotte Tilbury Blush Wand swipe on the cheeks of a beauty influencer on TikTok, I’m kinda dying inside because I’m not doing the swipe. Obviously, it’s time to add it to my cart and live my most glamorous and glamorous life.
14. Lisa Says Gah Denim Tote$21 (original $35)
Since I first saw this small tote bag, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. No lie, it haunted my dreams in the best way – I can’t wait to strut around with it all spring and summer (and fall and winter and everything in between).
Everyone has a staple beauty item that they never stray from, no matter what new and exciting product comes out. For me it’s the NARS Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil in the shade “Cruella” – aka the perfect, long-lasting red lip. It’s been a mainstay for me since my high school days, and it’s time to restock!
I’m also buying this just because I have no self control and love candle candles.
I was looking for a sleeveless long black dress to throw on during the summer for running errands, and *drum roll* I found it with this dress here, baby!
A rainbow themed silicone ice cube tray is something I didn’t know I needed until I saw it. Oh boy, do we all need this for a little burst of joy in our lives.
19. NIKE Daybreak Sneakers$90
I’ll be the first to admit that my collection of white sneakers has gotten out of hand. So to add a bit of color to my collection, I take advantage of this pair of NIKE Daybreaks. How sweet and cute is the combo?
As far as 2000s trends coming back into fashion, I’d rather eat raw chicken than wear low-rise jeans again. However, miniskirts are something I can get behind. This Reformation Plaid Mini Skirt can be dressed up or down.
I coveted the Le Creuset “Artichoke” color collection since its release. It’s finally time to get the dutch oven in this color, and you’re all welcome for dinner!
22. BP. Breadcloth pouch$6 – $12 (Original $12)
I definitely have a weakness for the color green. But I really need this canvas pouch since my gel liner exploded all over my old makeup bag. Sad.
24. Super goof! Play Everyday Lotion Sunscreen SPF 50$22 – $58
It’s the time of year to stock up on real jars of sunscreen! The loved one Super goof! play sunscreen comes in three different sizes. I’m mushy so I definitely get the 18 oz. jug. Safety first!!!
