I Shopped Nordstrom’s Sale With My Mom and Sister—Here’s What We’d Each Buy

The group text between my mom, my older sister Jen, and I is a smorgasbord involving recipes we're swapping, photos of my sister's new puppy, and most recently, what we're shopping from Nordstrom's spring sale. The retailer has a very special place in my heart and I know the same is true for the rest of my family—including my sister and mom. For as long as I can remember, Nordstrom has been a go-to source for all things fashion and beauty for all of us, and to this day we just can't get enough.

Since my entire family has been shopping there for years, we've come to be familiar with their offering of wardrobe staples, designer buys, and everything in between. So when Nordstrom announced their latest sale to ring in the new season, I knew my family's shopping picks would be legit. And sure enough, they didn't let me down. From my mom's favorite denim brand for comfy, timeless jeans to the shoe brand my sister has worn to countless weddings, I asked both of them to share what they'd buy from the epic sale. Keep scrolling for all the fashion finds we're adding to our carts right now.

My picks:

Spring is definitely in the air here in NYC and suddenly all I want to wear are fun-loving pieces like this retro floral skirt.

A boxy blazer is a must in my wardrobe and this slate grey color and wide lapel strike the perfect balance between modern and timeless.

Agolde makes some of the best basics in my wardrobe, so I just know this easy-to-style bodysuit is good.

Sleek, sophisticated, and versatile. I know my outfits would be made all the better with the addition of these ankle boots.

I can't wait to dress up again and a slinky '90s-inspired dress like this is exactly how I plan to do it.

It's not every day you find these best-selling, editor-approved jeans on sale.

I have this exact tee in tie-dye and wear it constantly. The weight of the cotton and the cropped length are perfect, so adding the white version to my cart is a no-brainer.

These will look so cool with tube socks and a mini skirt.

The most useful $14 I'll spend all week.

Already thinking about my summer WFH uniform.
