May is the month where we all start thinking about shopping for summer essentials, which is why I’m teaming up with Nordstrom today to bring you this summer essential look featuring the most darling little pink ruffled off the shoulder dress and a pair of must-have gladiator sandals.

Nordstrom is my go-to for finding my wardrobe staples and one thing that should top every girl’s list for summer is easy, breezy dresses (and lots of them!) like this little pink cotton number. Having easy, breathable dresses is especially an essential for us here in the South where temperatures can skyrocket to over 100 degrees. This dress features the softest, almost silky-like cotton and is flowy enough to catch the breeze on a day spent outside. Here’s a few more easy summer dresses for you to shop.

To style the pink off the shoulder ruffle dress, I opted for a few more summer must-haves that I also found at Nordstrom, starting with these amazing gladiator block heel sandals. Block heel sandals are trending in a major way this summer and I love that the trend allows you to wear a heel in a casual, comfortable way. You can shop more block heel sandals here. Next, I went for an essential that’s also crucial for the summer season – a shoulder bag like this one featuring a wear-with-anything neutral hue and a chic snakeskin print addition. Shoulder bags are a necessity for summer because it’s the season when we are all on-the-go so much so a purse that’s both practical, easy to carry and can carry everything you need is a must.   You can peruse a few more shoulder bags from Nordstrom here.

What I love about this dress, these gladiator sandals and this shoulder bag is that all three essentials can be worn in so many different ways and are guaranteed to get lots of use this summer season. I wore this look for a Sunday brunch and stroll through the Southern Hotel in Covington Louisiana with my mom and Nana on Mother’s Day.

A huge thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post.
