 As our favorite season begins to heat up, we look forward to casting off our sweaters and denim and heading to the beach in a new bikini. The Nordstrom Swim Pop-In Shop couldn’t have come at a better time, full of hand-picked swimwear pieces and luxurious cover-ups guaranteed to make your moment in the sun even more enjoyable. For the woman who enjoys a fabulous setting as much as she enjoys a gorgeous wardrobe, the collection has something for everyone, from retro high-waisted bikinis to daring one-pieces and cheeky bottoms.

We also love the breezy bohemian scarf cover-ups, ultra flattering racerback bikini tops, and wide array of coverage in bikini bottoms, for women of all styles and body types. Our perfect Saturday this weekend looks like starting the day in the ONIA ‘Jesse’ Cover-Up Shirtdress, sipping a latte seaside before hitting the beach in the fun and sporty Stone Fox ‘Venice’ Bikini before cozying up by the bonfire in the chic and ultra-comfy Soler ‘Thalia’ Off the Shoulder Silk Maxi Dress. While we’re praying to the fashion gods to make this pretty little daydream a reality, you can check out Faith modeling the entire collection on

While some say spring showers bring May flowers, at Nous we know it’s time for trend watching! Burnished metallics and soft rosy hues have been making appearances everywhere this season and are showcased beautifully with a sweep of shadow above a carmine pout. Warm, neutral tones accented by a pop of color are seen on Maggimae, a color pairing that is making major waves as this year’s festival season is in full swing. Nordstrom paired with Glossier cosmetics in this luxurious beauty shoot to create a variety of looks, from fresh-faced to glamorous. With minimal jewelry and tousled hair, this shoot reminds us to put our best face forward this spring.linebreak

The Unexpected Accessory That Makes Any Outfit Pop

When you think of spring, pinks, pastels, and the like probably come to mind. But if your style isn’t overly feminine, what’s a girl to do? The key is to keep your outfit clean and simple, adding hints of color in the form of an unexpected power accessory: your lips. With sunny weather in full swing, there’s no better time than now to play up your pout with COVERGIRL’s Oh Sugar! collection. From layering your shades to creating a just-bitten look, this is how you make your lips the hero of your outfit.

Scroll down for three stylish ways to make your pout stand out.

If you want your lips to be the focal point of your look, opt for a simple silhouette in white, like this dress from the Who What Wear collection exclusively sold at Target.

 When wearing neutrals, it’s easy to pile on the jewelry. But in this case, layering necklaces and earrings could distract from your lips. Instead, add a skinny scarf that’ll help keep the attention on your pout.


COVERGIRL Oh Sugar! Lipstick, $7



Using COVERGIRL Oh Sugar! Lipstick in Punch, apply to lips straight from the tube; add multiple layers to give your pout a just-bitten stained effect. The rest of your makeup should be light and natural; after adding a hint of color to your lids, finish your look with multiple coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast Full Lash Bloom Mascara to emphasize your lashes and make them stand out.

Gearing up for the weekend? Kick-start your Friday night with the latest arrivals from Clinique featuring Sydney and Monica. Clinique is pretty much our favorite go-to brand for the highest quality makeup and skincare, so we couldn’t be more proud of these beautiful ladies for being chosen to represent them!

Sydney has us swooning over her perfect dewy complexion, stunning as an exotic vintage beauty with kohl-lined eyes and the perfect red lip for one look, with flirty pink accents to smoky taupe eyes in a second more natural option. Monica, on the other hand, is making a strong impression for minimalism sporting menswear and the new Pep Start Eye Cream, creating a beautiful contrast with the vivid wash of color she wears as a modern-day flower child for her second look to promote the Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm.

Warning: Viewing WILL make you want to try out these products for yourself, so head to Clinique, bag some goodies, and thank us later!
