Summer has fully arrived to the stores, and today I had a couple of hours to myself before it was pick up time for the kids. We met with one of my best friends at Nordstrom, and had a blast trying on clothes. These shopping posts are some of the most fun ones to put together for me. They are right from the dressing room, candid, and spontaneous. Let’s admit it, choosing my best picks from my favorite stores never gets old either. My hope is that they are helpful for you too. <3

Today I’ll share my Best of Nordstrom, May Picks. I found colorful, on trend, pieces that will
cheer up your summer wardrobe. I am also showing you how I paired separates together. You can find all the outfit details listed under the photos. The Shop the Outfit pics are also clickable. ( Find all my Go Shopping Series Here)

COLD SHOULDER TOP + RIPPED WHITE JEANS 

This outfit has got to be one of my very favorites as I LOVE both the cold shoulder pink top, and the destroyed white crop jeans on their own. These pieces look cute together, but you would also get so much use out of each paired with many other items from your closet. I ordered these online a couple days ago but wanted to show you in person before they arrived.

DOUBLE LAYER TANK +  DOUBLE LAYER MINISKIRT

I just love these two pieces together. The burgundy double layer tank is really pretty (shown with one layer tucked in), and the double layer miniskirt has the cutest print. The skirt has the same burgundy hue in its pattern as the top.

LACE FIT AND FLARE DRESS

I’ve been eyeing this dress online, and I had to find it at the store when I was there today. In person, the eyelet dress is even more gorgeous. I absolutely loved the neckline, and the length.

The neckline is unique, and is very flattering.

MIXED PRINT OFF THE SHOULDER TOP

This year Off the Shoulder Tops are on fire, they are everywhere. I LOVE this style, and I want to have a million different ones in my summer closet. This off the shoulder top is very girly, and romantic.

TOPSHOP MINIDRESS 

During this shopping expedition, I bought a Mother’s Day outfit. I was almost buying this dress instead of the one I bought. I love the shape & design of the dress & how it is defined at the waist. The length of the dress is also just right. ( For reference I am around 5 4′ to 5 5′)

V NECK TANK + DESTROYED SKINNY JEANS 

I love the V neck tank. It comes in a couple colors. I am wearing the exact same ripped jeans from the first outfit.

This bralette is so versatile, and can be worn under so many summer items as a layering piece.

OFF THE SHOULDER BLACK DRESS + FLOPPY HAT

This is such an effortless, casual summer day look. The dress is by Socialite and is also not on the Website yet. The floppy hat is beautiful, and such a sunny day necessity.

FRENCHI SLIPDRESS 

I thought this dress would be a lovely cover up for the pool & the beach. (I am actually trying it on over a bikini top here) The fit and length are the best to wear over swimsuits at a resort. You could lunch in the dress, or could throw it on for going to and from your room.

BELTED ROMPER 

This romper attracted my attention with its beautiful print, and I also really liked it in this green option. I do wish it was a couple inches longer though.

    All of these pieces are great summer styles. My personal favorite is the patterned mini with long sleeves. I also love the white jeans on you. I am glad to hear you ordered them.

    I really like the open shoulder styles, but I only find them versatile and useful only if they have straps. All of your choices are perfect for summer.

    • Theboxqueen

      Glad you like the choices Sibel! I know you like your straps with off the shoulder tops, thought you would like that pink 🙂 I love all the shoulder detail pieces of this summer. XOXO, Elif
