Is it just me, or is this year’s crop of spring trends particularly strong? From maxi skirts and granny jackets to cargos, flats, and—my personal favorite—elevated basics, I don’t recall a time in which I’ve wanted to invest in so many It-items at once. Of course, in terms of budgeting, it’s not quite as a great a thing. My shopping carts and wish lists can only be described as scary and some major editing will need to take place before I settle on what I can feasably purchase for the coming months.
One thing that I’ve been working on in order to ease the blow of my next credit card bill has been looking for affordable versions of my favorite pieces first, so that I can save as much as possible. Naturally, Nordstrom has been a trove of finds, so I figured I’d share everything I’m eyeing as of late—all under $150. Just keep scrolling to shop six of my favorite trends for spring and summer.
