Summer is here, and I’ve been trying to dress more casually. However, I wanted a few grab-and-go outfits that I knew were comfortable, so I checked out a few brands that are my favorites when shopping with Nordstrom.
You’ve heard me mention before that I use filters when I am shopping at Nordstrom. I filter by size, price, category, and brands. My favorite brands can all be found in one spot, and here is how you find those. First, go to nordtrom.com and click on women at the top of the page. Then, click on Nordstrom made in the categories to the left.
That is a real-time-saver; I used to go and type each brand by hand until I stumbled across that trick. Lol! I still shop several brands that aren’t in this category, but these are the ones that I shop most often.
Since I wanted to show you a lot of casual and comfortable styles, I thought that I would take the photos in a casual setting. But, of course, heat is a big factor in my decisions on what to wear since I want to stay as cool as possible during the summer months. So, let’s get to the fun stuff…here are four outfits that I know you will love.
The first outfit is a classic run-around town outfit. You can go to the store, run after the kids, or go to a cookout in this type of outfit. The cuffed denim boyfriend shorts are the perfect length (5″), and they remind me of shorts that I wore when I was younger.
They have a touch of distressing, just enough to make them soft and comfortable. The boyfriend style is a relaxed fit, and they recommend sizing down for these shorts. I ordered a size 29 instead of my usual size 30, and they fit great. Ordering a smaller size always makes me nervous, but it worked out fine this time.
The v-neck t-shirt with blue edging around the neck and sleeves gives the tee a cute and unique detail. But, the softness of this t-shirt is what you will love. The top has a sporty and retro vibe, and since I am retro myself, I am obsessed with this t-shirt. I am wearing a large, but I could have sized down to a medium for a slimmer fit.
This striped muscle tank looks great with the pink twill shorts, but it also looks great with jeans, white pants, or navy. I also love adding a denim jacket to the look for times when there is a chill in the air. Tying the jacket around your waist is a great way to keep it handy when the weather is warm.
These twill roll cuff shorts are by the same brand as the denim shorts. Once you find a brand that you know and love, you get familiar with the quality and the sizing of their clothing. These shorts have a 5 1/2″ inseam and front slant pockets. The shorts come in a whole slew of colors, but this pink color stood out to me.
I ordered my usual size 10 in these shorts, and they felt tight through the waist. They fit everywhere else fine, but the stomach area is where I carry most of my weight. After a few minutes, they loosened up and were comfortable. I feel like they run true to size.
If a tank is not your style, you will love this navy and white striped tee, and you can still wear it with all of the options as the striped tank above. Blue and white is a classic color combination that I wear a lot, and it would be perfect for a 4th of July celebration event. Here are some other options for adding this color combination to your wardrobe.
I love the color olive, but it doesn’t look great against my skin, so I don’t have many items in this color. However, these cotton twill shorts are a great way to add this color to my wardrobe without it being next to my face.
The shorts have a 5 1/2″ inseam and front slant pockets. I love the way these shorts look, and the fit is great also. I am wearing my usual size 10, and the shorts run true to size.
This sporty knit dress might be my favorite of all of these outfits. I was a little hesitant when ordering the dress, but I am so glad that I got out of my comfort zone and took the plunge. This is such a comfortable dress, and the ruching is so flattering! The dress is so versatile; you can wear it dress dressed up or casually. I am wearing a large in the dress.
Look at this stunning detail. Of course, you can tie the dress higher if you want, but I love this length.
These black sunglasses add some GLAM! They offer 100% UV protection as well as style. Also, the price is incredibly affordable at $15.
I styled the dress with two pairs of shoes today. The first photo was taken with a pair of square-toed ivory sandals, and this photo is with platform sandals. The slide sandals are incredibly comfortable with the Tenley flatform footbed. I am wearing my usual size 9 in both shoes, and the fit is perfect.
Everything I’m wearing today can be purchased at Nordstrom, and with their free shipping and free returns, it is super convenient. I love trying on clothing in the privacy of my home, but I hate paying for shipping and returns. That is just one reason I love shopping at Nordstrom; it never costs me anything to try new clothing styles. Nordstrom also offers BOPUS (Buy Online Pick Up in Store) and contactless curbside pickup options.
