I Live in Trendy Basics, and I Found the Best Options at Nordstrom's Spring Sale

There is almost nothing I love more than a good sale. Growing up, I would get overly excited when I went shopping with my mother, obsessing over new arrivals and restyling mannequins, and she would say, "If you love something just wait—it will go on sale." Indeed, my mom was spot-on.

Luckily for me, that painful period of waiting for my favorite pieces to hit the sale rack has finally ended. Nordstrom's Spring Sale has arrived, and the items are so good I think I want everything. Since I'm working on building a closet of trendy, versatile basics that I can wear all season long, my focus for shopping the sale was just that.

Keep scrolling through to see the best basics I found while shopping the Nordstrom Spring Sale.

Square-toed slingback sandals under $50? I'm sold. 

A crop top you can wear on a night out.

Midi dresses are going to be everywhere this spring and summer, and this one would be great for a date night. 

I love a good shoulder bag. This vegan-leather pink one is definitely being added to my collection. 

Style these mules with your favorite pair of denim and a dress shirt for an everyday-chic look. 

A ribbed cardigan you can throw on with anything.

You can never have too many pairs of high-quality leggings.

Platform mules with a chain detail are so cool and trendy. And they're under $50.

 A great pair of mules is a must for spring.

I think I'm becoming a clog person. 

Lace-up heeled sandals that you can actually dance all night in. 

These sandals could pass for designer shoes. 

Flare-ankle jeans are the perfect pair of denim to show off your favorite shoes and flatter your figure superbly.

If I could live in pajama sets, I would.
