Any New Yorker will tell you that black is our go-to color. No matter the season, New York City can often look like a sea of chic black outfits. I’m definitely one of those New Yorkers. A good black dress has become my uniform, and no matter how many I have, I always find myself wanting to buy more. However, now that spring is here and summer is just around the corner, I’ve decided it’s time to start adding a little color to the mix. I went to my go-to retailer, Nordstrom, to shop for colorful new dresses, shoes, and bags to help make my wardrobe brighter, happier, and less black. I found everything I was looking for (and more) among brands like Farm Rio, Staud, and Alice + Olivia.
