The last time I spent 6 days inside a Nordstrom Store I worked there full-time. I just got home from a 6-day shopping trip to my favorite Nordstrom Store in San Diego, CA. The Nordstrom 6 and I hosted an event, I got to preview what the stores are getting for the Anniversary Sale, and I went LIVE on Instagram with my favorite summer picks. My camera roll and wish list are full of many things that will be on the NSale this year. There will be more online than in the stores and everyone can preview it on July 3rd at noon ET. Continue reading for a roundup of the summer styles I found from the best brands at Nordstrom right now.
SEE MY SUMMER PICKS LIVE ON IG
On Sunday, I shared some high-low styling suggestions to make a black and white capsule better than basic alongside a few of my favorite summer styles from the best brands at Nordstrom now.
I wore this black and white slip dress during my LIVE ON IG. A slip dress is one of 3 dress styles that work well on every body type. This one is so much fun because it’s in a fashionable yet timeless black-and-white print. It’s 100% silk, cut on the bias for the most flattering fit, and has adjustable straps. Wear it casual now with sneakers and a tank top or dressy with black and white sandals and a cropped cardigan. Here are 4 ways to style it this winter.
I had the black and white slip dress on over this striped Nordstrom tank for under $20.
I often recommend this white blazer with white buttons from L’agence. It fits similarly to my best-selling Veronica Beard “Miller” blazer but it’s a little lighter fabric and softer through the shoulder. The one-button style is a beauty and this vest has all the feels of Chanel.
FRAME is a favorite in my Jean Shop; their blouses are bomb and dresses are divine. I found these super lightweight black and white Palazzo pants in San Diego. They work perfectly in my Resort Casual Capsule Wardrobe. Get all the outfit combinations here.
This blue and white striped dress would work well in my new Classic Fashion Capsule. This puff sleeve shirt dress works great solo or styled as a tunic over pants in my Minimalist Capsule Work Wardrobe. This T-shirt dress has been a best seller every summer and part of this year’s Simple Summer Capsule.

Minimalistic Work Capsule
ALC does the best job of making fashionable yet age-inclusive styles. Their pieces are designed with quality fabrics that look and feel fantastic. This summer my favorite from them includes cropped tops ad high-rise bottoms. I shared this skirt and matching top in my LIVE.
ALICE AND OLIVIA
If your closet is craving some color Alice and Olivia have what you need now. The 3 dresses are at the top of my wish list and are so pretty in person.
CINQ A SEPT
I shared these silky Cinq a Sept high-rise joggers in my Simple Summer Capsule. They look so good with this matching camisole top with a cool racer stripe. You can wear the Khloe in black all year long. I love it over these two pieces as a modern-day tuxedo.

This slouchy hobo bag with versatile two-tone hardware stole my heart. The Nordstrom 6 and I shared several Givenchy bags at our summer styling event, including the 3 below.
The designer sales are still in progress. Here are some finds from Givenchy on sale now.
