The periwinkle dress of your dreams

If you haven’t heard, periwinkle is THE Pantone color of 2022! Seriously, I'm in love with this beautiful color. And even more in love with this satin silk wrap dress!

This dress is definitely on the more expensive side of Nordstrom dresses, but one that's worth every penny – you might know the kind. Seriously – this dress may be one of the most well-fitted dresses that I’ve EVER tried on. A guaranteed bang for your buck!

But, if you’re looking for a similar fit for less, I found this other pretty satin dress that comes in a dark green, black, and champagne. It has a beautiful high-low cut with a tie belt to hit you in all the right places. 

Also, I just HAD to throw in these periwinkle Sam Edelman heels! Look at them. Are we kidding?! Sam Edelman shoes have similar soles to your fave Nike running shoes, so you can already imagine how comfy they are. These shoes come in 11 other colors and seriously will be the perfect pair of pumps to go with any dress.

The statement sweater dress

A combination of sleek, chic, and bold, this dress is the perfect statement piece for any occasion! I love the asymmetrical ruffle detail on the bottom and the classy neckline up top. The neutral color would be perfect to add colored accents to, or to keep all neutral like I did!

There's only rave reviews for this dress that fits like a glove AND it's just under $100!

Casual sweater dress

If you’re looking for more of a casual sweater dress, this pink one is for you. SO versatile – I dressed it up with heels but it would look so so cute dressed down with your fave pair of sneakers!

I love how it’s not too body-con or fitted, but fitted enough to give you some shape. (Plus it’s sooo cozy!) This dress would make the perfect Valentine’s Day look, too!

Anytime, anywhere

This might be Nordstrom's highest-rated dress of ALL TIME. Because it has nearly hundreds of perfect 5-star ratings, more and more colors have come out over the years.

I’ve worn this dress for years – even through many of my pregnancies! Even when my body has been more curvy, this ruched body-con never fails to look good.

This time I tried it in beige and think it would be SO cute paired with a flannel tied on your waist or a denim jacket. For SURE one you can dress up or down for any occasion. And it’s ONLY $59! Give me allll the colors.

Perfect for Valentine’s Day

Think the dancing emoji red dress, but in REAL life! PERFECT for your Valentine’s date.

This beautiful red dress is SO flattering with the ruffle going down the front and a pretty v-neck. I love that it's a faux wrap dress, so no more worrying about it coming down when you sit, but you still have that wrap dress look. Even the tie is faux so it will always make a perfect bow.

With a blouse-y, more generous fit, I give this dress a full 5-stars!!
