Spring Style Essentials with Nordstrom

There are a few pew pieces that are spring style essentials. Items that are closet must haves and can be mixed and matched with just about anything! Today, I am sharing some of my spring style essentials with Nordstrom!

Outfit – Tank // Cardigan // Linen Joggers // Espadrille Sneakers // Bag

There are a few essential pieces that I make sure my closet has from season to season. With the stay at home order, these essentials look a little different this spring! I’ve been on the hunt for the best basics that can be worn for lounging around the house and out and about.

Nordstrom is always my first stop when it’s time for a wardrobe refresh each season. They have a wide selection of items to choose from and I love finding the seasons best trends and classic closet staples all in one place! Not to mention, they have amazing customer service and their everyday free shipping makes ordering online a breeze.

When it comes to spring staples, there is one piece that is an ABSOLUTE MUST…a lightweight cardigan. I snag a new one every year that I end up wearing on repeat because I find that it goes with everything!

This year, I grabbed this one and I have to say I’m obsessed! It’s the perfect length and weight, making it a great option for layering. It comes in a bunch of color options, but I went with a neutral pick that I know I could pair with most of my closet. It will be easy to dress up or down, but has currently been great for working from home! See all the ways I styled it below!

Comfy shorts and joggers have been another one of my essentials! I am especially loving the linen options because of how easy they are to wear around the house and out the door! This pair is my current fave. They are so lightweight and easy breezy, that I’ve been wearing them to work from home. I can’t wait to wear them in the classroom when I go back to work and think they would be great for travel too!

As it starts to warm up, shorts are a must. I don’t know about you, but lounging around the house in denim shorts really isn’t the best option. I will be opting for soft, flexible options like this pair. They are comfy enough to spend hours at my desk in zoom meetings, but cute enough to make it out of the house! I am also loving the tie and paperbag waist of this pair!

Get the Look

I don’t know about you, but I am ready to ditch the long sleeves and jeans for shorts and tees. Sadly, the weather hasn’t received that memo yet. It’s absolutely necessary to layer up before heading out the door!

Luckily, I snagged some of the cutest affordable spring jacket options at Walmart for the new season. I actually look forward to layering up before leaving now!

From season to season, Walmart has been one of the first places I look for freshening up my wardrobe! They carry everything from staples to on trend pieces with prices that don’t break the bank! I love that I can score budget friendly options without sacrificing style!

This utility jacket is one of my favorite recent purchases. It’s under $30, comes in 4 color options and is an amazing piece to add to your spring wardrobe! It’s a great jacket to take from work to the weekend, layers up easily and is a great length! Is it crazy that I want all four colors now??

Check out some more affordable spring jackets from Walmart that I am loving below!

Dress (Size: Small // Price: $ ): This dress is SO sweet! I was drawn to the flirty fit and the detailing. It’s even prettier in person! From the ruffle sleeves and hem to the sweet pom detailing, this dress makes a statement without being over the top! I love the neutral color too that looks good on any skin tone! This is a dress that you can definitely wear year round!

Cream Cozy Up Cardigan (Size: Small // Price: $55 ): This cardigan is an absolute DREAM! It is incredibly soft! It’s made of chenille, so it feels like you are wrapped up in a cozy blanket. This is a piece that can be dressed up or down. It’s super warm too, so perfect for chilly winter days!

Darling Tee (Size: Small // Price: $24): The sweetest little tee! I love the embroidery detailing and the slightly cropped fit. I am wearing a small, but suggest sizing up if you would like it to run a little more oversized! This is one of those tees that you will be wearing year round!

Everyday Striped Long Sleeve Tunic (Size: Small // Price: $34): This top reminds me of something from Free People. I absolutely adore the stripe color combo and the oversized sleeves. It’s soft and comfy and perfect for wearing out or lounging. It was the very first piece to sell out…check back for a restock!

Ivory Long Sleeve Button Up (Size: Small // Price: $34): You can’t go wrong with a button up henley top! I wear these year round and this one is a real winner. Although it is described as ivory, I would say it gives off some hints of blush. It’s super warm and I love the slightly cropped swing fit.

Blue Keyhole Blouse (Size: Small // Price: $48): This top is another favorite. I thought this top would be perfect for the classroom! I love the keyhole and pom pom detailing that adds such a fun touch. Wear it with black denim and loafers and jeans and booties.

On my List Oversized Sweater (Size: Small // Price: $48): This sweater is probably the most versatile in the collection. It can be worn on or off the shoulder and is long enough to wear with leggings. I love the chunky fit (it’s seriously so soft!) and the ribbing. I’ve worn this with leggings, tucked into jeans and with a full length sequin midi skirt (see here).

Winter Storm Plaid Cardigan (Size: S/M // Price: $48): I love a good plaid cardi and this one is too cute! I haven’t seen this color combo and think it’s perfect for winter. It’s a great layering piece and is one that can be dressed up or down. I can’t wait to wear this in the classroom!

Mocha Cropped Sweater (Size: S/M // Price: $48): This sweater is a closet classic. I feel like it can be styled a million different ways! It’s slightly cropped, but the perfect length for tucking in or wearing with skirts! I love the chunky knit and the oversized sleeves.

Color Me Striped Sweater (Size: S/M // Price: $54): This sweater is my favorite! I am obsessed with the color combo and bright stripes. It’s just what you need in the darkest days of winter to brighten things up! It’s super soft and I love the oversized sleeves. Size up if you want a more oversized look to wear with leggings!

Weekends. Coffee. & Dogs. Tee (Size: Small // Price: $26): If this tee doesn’t describe a perfect weekend, then I don’t know what does! I love the oversized fit of this tee and that it is long enough to wear with leggings! It is SO soft and the color goes with everything. This tee sold out pretty fast…stay tuned for a restock!
