3 Vacation-Ready Looks with Nordstrom

Spring break is just around the corner, and summer vacations after that, so today I’m teaming up with Nordstrom to share three warm weather looks for your vacation planning and packing needs.

Even if you don’t have plans to travel this spring, you can wear these looks at home as soon as the weather warms up where you live. In fact, I plan to have all three of these outfits on repeat this summer.


KUT from the Kloth Amanda Boxy Jacket (S) // Madewell Whisper Cotton V-Neck Pocket Tee (S) // PAIGE Anessa Wide Leg Jeans (29) (option) (budget option) // Sam Edelman Bambi Raffia Slide Sandals (8) // similar clutch // similar earrings // similar belt

This first look is my vacation travel outfit. (I usually wear sneakers on the plane and bring the sandals in my carry-on so I can swap them out when I get to my warm weather destination.)

I love this pink denim jacket; it’s such a happy color, and it looks great with blue jeans and a white tee. It’s stretchy and comfortable, and it has a flattering silhouette. Plus, the cargo pockets and slightly longer length gives it an updated appeal. This jacket runs true to size, or size down if in between. I’m wearing the small.


My PAIGE Anessa Raw Hem Wide Leg Jeans are from last year, and I see they’re starting to sell out. I wasn’t aware of that when I shot this look! This pair and this pair are similar premium denim options, and the KUT from the Kloth Meg is a similar style for less.


My favorite way to wear wide leg ankle jeans is with neutral slides. It has such an effortlessly chic summer vibe, and these Sam Edelman raffia slides are my current favorites. I love the texture the raffia and scalloped edges add to the look, and the tortoiseshell buckle creates a pleasing contrast and keeps them classy. They’re very comfortable, with padding under the strap and in the footbed. They run true to size, or size up if in between.

STYLE TIP: Wearing the neutral sandal that’s close to the color of my skin tone helps elongate the line of the leg and balance the crop wide leg jeans.


I’m wearing the Madewell Whisper Cotton V-Neck Pocket Tee underneath my pink jacket. It’s a great price for this essential summer wardrobe staple, and it can stand alone if it’s hot where I’m going and I want to remove the jacket when I get there.

My second look features this sleeveless linen sheath in the black with the contrast stitching. It’s made of a breathable blend of linen and Tencel® lyocell, so it can withstand hot temperatures. It also looks great with a denim jacket top, if it gets chilly at night.

This is the perfect dress to take you from sightseeing all day, out to dinner at night. In fact, I wore the white one last year in Italy, and did exactly that.

I love how it has a v-neck in the back and an exposed zipper for a little added interest. This dress runs true to size, or size up if in between; I have the medium because I wanted plenty of breathing room.

The P448 sneakers keep it casual and comfortable for lots of walking, and you can swap them out for sandals for dinner.

Finally, no vacation capsule is complete without a stylish poolside or beach-friendly look!

One piece swimsuits are trending again, and after many years of preferring a tankini, I’m really enjoying the ease of a one piece. Not only are they easy to slide on and off, they keep everything smoothed out through the midsection, whereas a tankini can create extra lumps and bumps or accentuate a thicker middle.


La Blanca is one of my favorite swimsuit brands, and Nordstrom has lots of styles to choose from. They typically offer good coverage and modern styles that aren’t frumpy. The one I’m wearing here is their Island Goddess One-Piece Swimsuit in a size 10. It’s very sleek and simple, and the shirring through the waist is flattering on every body type.

And of course, every bathing suit needs a stylish cover-up for getting to and from the beach or pool. I wore this Sea Level Heatwave Cover-Up Shirtdress over my swimsuit when I was in Florida, and I love the relaxed fit and how it keeps everything covered.

It also looks chic and polished when you’re walking around or grabbing a bite at the poolside bar. You can wear it buttoned or unbuttoned, or even add a pair of denim shorts for more of a styled outfit.

Sunglasses are essential when you’re at the beach, and I’m a huge fan of these oversized square frames. Diff makes a similar style for less, and there’s also this super budget-friendly BP. pair.


As always, when you shop at Nordstrom, you get their free shipping and free returns. And don’t forget about their BOPUS (Buy Online Pick Up in Store) and contactless curbside pickup options.
