BP. Turner Sneaker, $27 (usually $45), Nordstrom

Invest in a crisp white sneaker this summer and wear them with, well, everything. This pair has bright multicolored detailing for a little more "oomph."

Chelsea28 Sheer Emroidered Midi Dress, $80 (usually $159), Nordstrom

Midi-length dresses are the style of the season. Wear a pretty floral one with sandals for a fresh daytime look, or throw on a strappy heel for a special occasion.

Halogen Lace Pinstripe Tank Dress, $66 (usually $110), Nordstrom

Your destination wedding dress shopping stops here.

Treasure & Bond Print Ruffle Maxi Dress, $53 (usually $89), Nordstrom

With sneakers for day or strappy sandals for a night out, this ruffled floral number will be your go-to all summer.

Another summer favorite (in bright floral!) that's begging to be put in your shopping cart.

Steve Madden Stecy Sandal, $50 (usually $80), Nordstrom

A strappy sandal in a nude color with a short heel will work for almost any occasion or summer event. (We're looking at you, wedding season.)

Varsity Stripe Tee, $27 (usually $45), Nordstrom

Stay relaxed and cool with this deep V-neck top with an athletic-themed accent. This will be great to throw on over a sundress on a cool summer night but will also work well into fall.

Lucky Norreys Sandal, $53 (usally $89), Nordstrom

Perfect to throw on with jeans or your favorite sundress -- and in four colors to boot!

Sketchy Floral Robe, $35 (usually $58), Nordstrom

There’s something so special about wearing a short, silky robe as you get ready for a night out on the town. But this works just as well for lounging with morning coffee on a sticky summer morning, which, let’s be honest, is much more likely.

Jayne Sandal, $84 (usually $120), Nordstrom

Platforms are back, baby! And there’s nothing like leaning into the retro trend with a throwback color, like this velvety marigold.

Caslon Off-Duty Tie Front Knit Dress, $35 (usually $59), Nordstrom

Prediction: This will be the dress you live in all summer. It’s the perfect mix of comfy and cute that’s perfect for a day of traveling. Throw on flat slides, a pair of sunnies and maybe even a fedora to pull the whole look together.

J.Crew Cora Slide Sandals, $49 (usually $69), Nordstrom

A criss-cross sandal in classic black easily takes you from morning errands to an afternoon by the pool.

We're all about the jumpsuit! Throw on this piece and you’ll look incredibly stylish in a second.

Stripe Pajamas, $65 (usually $108), Nordstrom

Treat yourself! Maybe it’s time to upgrade from the same ratty T-shirt and worn-out boxers in which you normally sleep to something a little more grown-up.

Tie Shoulder One-Piece Swimsuit, $66 (usually $110), Nordstrom

This one is sweet, and another is sexy, but both are perfect for all your summer funitivities. Three cheers for one-pieces!

For those chillier summer nights, layer this trumpet-sleeved sweater with white jeans and sandals for a cozy, nautical look.
