You may already be somewhat familiar with my mother. Yep, the retired teacher who’s into style and has no problem sharing some of her latest sartorial thoughts with me, which I often then parlay into some of the content I create as a fashion editor. And while we’re both clearly different and have our own unique personal styles, we do share some similarities in the shopping department. Believe it or not, we both actually wear similar basic items to round out our classic wardrobes. And what’s one store where we purchase a lot of said staple items? Yep, Nordstrom. (Although, if we’re shopping currently, it’s all digitally of course.) Honestly, this may not come as much of a shock since the mega retailer does stock quite the range of chic basics.
With all that in mind, I thought it would be fun to showcase the general essentials both my mom and I turn to when we’re perusing Nordstrom. So if you’re shopping at the moment or want to bookmark a few pieces to reference at a later date, keep scrolling for a bit of visual inspiration, followed by a curation of cool basics that could be worth testing out.
It's no secret that Nordstrom's shoe department is epic. The sandal-and-sneaker collection is especially noteworthy. My mom is currently eyeing a few flat slides and sandals for summer, and I tend to stock up on simple sneaker silhouettes.
