Good morning, friends! Nordstrom is running a Triple Points event, and I have some new spring try-ons to share with you. I took these pictures before my surgery in case I’d feel up to posting them.
Nordy Club Members and Cardmembers earn Triple Points on their Nordstrom purchases from May 5th through May 8th, so this is a great time to check out their new arrivals and spring must-haves while earning Nordstrom Notes three times as fast.
I also like to use this opportunity to refresh my basics that don’t usually go on sale, like bras, underwear, and shapewear.
SIZING NOTES: I’m 5’5″ and I usually wear a small in tops, a 28 or 29 in jeans, and a size 8 shoe.
Nordstrom Spring Styles
If you want comfort sandals that aren’t frumpy, I highly recommend trying these. They have a molded footbed, and the ankle straps offer additional stability.
And I love the fit of these shorts. If you like longer shorts, these are a solid choice. They’re a stretchy twill material with denim styling. The cuff is not sewn, so you can adjust them to your liking or even wear them un-cuffed if you want.
I’m wearing the size 6 here, and they fit perfectly but with no room to spare. I’m kind of in between sizes right now, so I would say these are true to size. I’m also wearing the Halogen brushed teardrop earrings. The’re lightweight and comfortable to wear.
I also picked up these shorts in the Smokey Twilight. This lavender shade is very much on trend this spring.
These Open Edit braided slides play into the puffy shoe trend that is so hot right now. Open Edit is one of the newer Nordstrom Made brands, and the prices are really good.
These aren’t leather, but I don’t mind that so much for a trendy style like this that will only be in style for a couple of seasons.
This top is not from Nordstrom, but I really like it. The weird thing is, it’s one size fits all? I mean, there is no way… so basically, if you’re typically a small or a medium, it should work for you.
And here’s a rear view. This top has a slightly curved hemline, and it’s a quality slub knit fabric. The shorts have a 9″ un-cuffed inseam so it’s about 7″ here, with the way I have them rolled twice.
Next up, I ordered this striped tank, thinking about the Memorial Day and July 4th festivities that are on the horizon.
I sized up to a medium for the chest area, but it’s pretty loose everywhere else, so it’s basically true to size. (And yes, I’m exchanging it for the small since I won’t need the extra room in the chest by Memorial Day!)
These are the white Wit & Wisdom Ab Solution Denim Shorts, size 6. And these Caslon espadrille wedges are super cute! I like how the perforations add texture and a feminine detail. They run true to size.
Speaking of July 4th festivities, this Caslon space dyed sweater is super cute for those of us who live in colder climates. Memorial Day can be dreary and cold here in Philly, so I like to have a long-sleeve option on hand, just in case. It’s cozy and warm.
And still thinking along those lines, this striped hoodie is a great little piece to have in your spring/summer closet. I love the nautical vibe. It comes in lots of colors; I had it in red last year, and this is the navy. It’s true to size; I’m wearing the small here.
I also ordered these Caslon stretch chinos to try because I get a lot of requests for non-denim pants. I really like the slim straight fit and the 28″ inseam.
They come in four colors, and the fabric is a comfortable 97% cotton, 3% spandex.
I also picked up this blouse. It’s very cottony — more of a casual material, but you can dress it up or down.
The blouse has some lavender in it, so I tried wearing it with these shorts, but I don’t really care for this pairing after all. I prefer it with white, or it also looks nice with blue jeans or navy pants.
I ordered this Halogen dress on a whim. I love the style and cut of it, but it has pockets, and they don’t lay quite right. It’s a shame because otherwise it’s a great dress. I’m wearing the small.
Maybe they could be sewn shut or something? I dunno, because I really like this dress otherwise, and I have such a hard time finding flattering dresses. It’s fully lined too.
Okay, finally, we’re back to shorts. These Calson tie waist linen shorts have been around for years. I had them in a small a few years ago, and I remember them being snug, so I ordered a medium this time, and they fit perfectly.
I love the navy crossdye fabric and the relaxed fit. They also have them in solid white, black, and olive. The inseam is about 3″ so they’re definitely short, but I set them lower on my hips and I don’t feel they’re too shorty-short. They have the olive and black in a 5″ length, for those who want a longer option.
And these are the Dolce Vita Indy slides. They’re really cute and comfortable for a flat sandal. I got mine at Zappos, but Nordstrom also carries them, just not in this exact color way. Mine are the Ivory Multi Stella.
