A Fashion Editor Goes to Nordstrom.com—Here's What She Buys for Summer

Lauren Eggertsen

I was originally going to title this story "A Fashion Editor Walks Into Nordstrom…" but clearly the only walking I'm doing is from my bedroom to the living room where I sit on my computer and shop online. One of my favorite online retailers for everything from beauty products to contemporary designers is Nordstrom. This probably doesn't come as much of a shock to you, but it's true. While I can't really buy the summer wardrobe of my dreams due to the fact that I won't be going much farther than my backyard, my summertime shopping list is hitting a little different this season, but that's something I've come to terms with. 

With that said, I scrolled through an embarrassing number of pages on Nordstrom.com and was able to narrow down my ideal summer shopping list to 35 trendy but practical items. From heeled thongs to statement shorts, get ready to shop all the things this fashion editor is eyeing and buying for summer 2020, whatever that may look like.
