I don't know about you, but when a new season rolls around, I like to take stock of my stuff and see what needs to be donated and also how I can refresh my inventory (preferably on a budget, of course). I try not to buy too much stuff nowadays in an effort to be more sustainable and frugal. But I always like to buy a couple of new things for my wardrobe and home to welcome a new season. It can be as simple as a new candle for my living room or a couple of on-trend pieces to spice up my existing closet inventory.
This spring and summer, I'm definitely focusing on picking up a few new activewear pieces and workout gear. I've been exercising every day since October, so I'm getting a little bored with the leggings I have on rotation at the moment. And now that the weather is nicer, I might want to take my workouts outdoors (safely!).
If you're looking to refresh your workout gear this season and beyond, Nordstrom's got a great sale going on right now with some amazing deals on cult-favorite brands and styles. Take a look at some of the pieces I'm eyeing below.
