These summer staples are selling out everywhere!☀️

Sales are brisk in the swimsuit department these days, which makes perfect sense since this will be the summer of travel! But that’s not the only category that’s popular right now. Dresses are selling out, lipstick is flying off the shelves and pretty much everything related to travel is hot, hot, hot! It’s an exciting time in the world of fashion, with anticipation and optimism everywhere. The Business of Fashion recently reported that the fashion industry is targeting a “travel rebound,” and many brands are now investing in resort wear. So, what does that mean for us? Well, now is the time to grab a few swimsuits, find a great dress or two, and get all your favorite travel items together in time to enjoy a perfect summer season!

As you likely know, Nordstrom is always my go-to for most everything. They have the best selection of all my stylish favorites, and after working there for a lifetime (29 years to be exact), I kind of know my way around the store 😊  Keep reading to see what’s trending, what’s selling, and what you need for the perfect summer wardrobe. I’m sure you’ll find a few things you absolutely love!

Rails is a favorite brand, and this dress is perfect for warm summer days

Since we can go maskless now, bright colored lips are back. Chanel Lipglosses are my personal favorites!

These sandals go with everything, and they’re reasonably priced too

Love this pretty green swimsuit and the scalloped details on this one!

Purchasing a swimsuit can be a little tricky. It’s a lot more fun to make selections online and try them on in the privacy of your own home 😉 With so many choices, I’m narrowing it down to make it a little easier for you. There are some gorgeous designer styles by Lisa Marie Fernandez and Zimmerman, and then there are several I love by Chelsea 28 (also very well priced). Keep scrolling to see some favorite picks … all available on Nordstrom.com!











Cute Coverups

Finding a few good coverups is a must given that most of us aren’t wandering around the pool in just a  swimsuit (and if you are, you go girl)! There are many options, like this favorite style that easily go from pool to dinner — and you would never know it’s a coverup! This shirt style goes with literally every swimsuit, and this white one is amazing too.

Summer dresses are so easy, and you don’t have to think about coordinating an entire outfit. There are many options, and several at very reasonable prices. I think pretty dresses are the only way to go on hot summer days! Here are some favorites:


Farm Rio dresses


Rails dresses


Off the shoulder dresses


Comfy Flat sandals

Finding a couple of comfy, stylish sandals that work with all your outfits is the key to bringing it all together easily. Throw on a dress, add sandals (and a handbag) and you’re ready to go! Here are some options I love:



Must-have summer accessories

I can’t say it enough: these are the finishing touch to every outfit!! Sunglasses are magic, hats are pretty much a necessity for a day in hot weather, and pretty jewelry feels glamorous 🙂 Add one (or all three) and complete your glam summer look!
