My mom and I are multiple states and 32 years apart; she’s 4’11”, and I’m 5′ 8″; and if you looked at the outfits we individually put together, you’d be hard-pressed to find similarities. Yet whenever we shop at Nordstrom together—something we’ve been doing since I was a toddler tagging along on a mall trip from the comfort of my stroller—we tend to take a liking to the same things. It’s like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants phenomenon, but with a mother and daughter, and instead of one pair of pants, it’s a heap of chic buys from Nordstrom.
When I was home during the holidays, we shopped the Half-Yearly Sale to no end together, both ordering a few of the same items. Afterward, we started planning ahead for 2024 in the retailer’s new-arrivals section. As usual, our picks weren’t very far off from each other’s. Below, take a look at the 37 items my 60-year-old mom and I are both looking to add to our 2024 wardrobe rotations, from cashmere knits and elevated denim to suede accessories and LBDs.
