You only need three things to put together a casual, but totally fabulous contemporary summer outfit: a killer pair of wedges, a great pair of jeans, and a simple structured top. Follow this formula and you’ll always have something to wear that looks chic without having to put a ton of thought into it. I love those get dressed and go outfits on those days that I have a million things to do, but also just want 5 more minutes of sleep!!
And bonus, right now Nordstrom has some aaaaaamazing pieces to help you create the perfect contemporary look with investment pieces you’ll wear over and over! And, as always, one of my favorite parts is FREE shipping and FREE returns. Zero risk shopping? Yes please!
I’m absolutely loving the cropped hem on these jeans. The cropped hem is such a hot summer trend and makes showing off your shoes super easy! And the fraying is just the perfect amount of distressing to make these jeans feel casual, but still look dressed up.
You guys know by now that a classic white shirt is a total closet staple for me. This one with the bell sleeves is my current favorite child. The tulip cuffs and exaggerated sleeves lend a little bit of romance and drama to the top, but it’s still a slim silhouette so you don’t feel like you’re wearing your husband’s shirt! The pullover style is so easy to just throw on and go without having to mess with a bunch of buttons. This is the type of shirt you’ll wear over and over and be able to quickly reach for anytime you want to feel totally confident in what you’re wearing.
What more can I really say about this bag? It is the perfect size for my wallet, keys and phone and tan goes with everything! Did I mention that there’s room for snacks? This is a very important feature for a girl on the go. But it’s very best feature has to be that the top zips closed! Now when you’re in a rush you can literally just throw in the essentials, zip it closed and run out the door without worrying about things falling out.
I need every heart eye emoji possible for these wedges!! They’re seriously the perfect summer shoe, and everybody online agrees. They earned near perfect 5-star reviews! These wedges are gorgeous and comfortable which is all any girl is really looking for in a shoe, amiright? The color goes with absolutely everything so you’ll probably see these a lot this summer!
Here are a few more of my favorite contemporary wardrobe staples from Nordstrom; all things you’ll wear over and over all summer long!
