Beach Vibes with Nordstrom

February 15, 2022

Thank you to Nordstrom and ShopStyle Collective for sponsoring this post.

First thing to note: when booking an impromptu beach getaway check the weather! We recently went to Florida and it was cold, cold, really cold. Not cold enough to stop my kids from swimming and not cold enough to stop me from giving this cute new suit a wear-test before sharing my thoughts with all of you, but definitely cold enough for me to be mad at Florida for a hot minute. I will forgive and forget, but I may have to push back to March when 75 and sunny is a sure thing. I know many of you have upcoming trips planned so I wanted to share some of the new swimsuits, cover ups and beach essentials that just landed at Nordstrom.


Robin Piccone Bikini Top | Robin Piccone Bikini Bottom (more bikini bottom styles that match this suit HERE)| Straw Bucket Hat

Fit Note: I am wearing size small in top and bottom. I am normally an XS, but I always size up in swim.

Give me a sporty yet feminine bikini and I am all over it. I like my suits to have decent coverage so I can move confidently without feeling like I have a wedgie – just me? This high neck top is also great for many body types. It works great for a small chest (hand raised) and I love that it has removable cups to give shape. It’s also very supportive so if you are bustier I feel like this top would be a great option. Another perk – it covers the delicate skin of your décolletage which is a magnet for sunburn. And that is so OUT!

The bottoms are high-rise, but not too too high. I actually folded the top band under because I liked where that hit on my body better than the full length. I always like to remember that sometimes we need to tweak pieces to make them work! I love that with a solid bottom you can pair them with so many other separate pieces – I would like the higher rise bottom with a “skimpier” top to create more balance. Many of Robin’s suits can be mixed and matched – check out the other bikini bottom styles here and her other bikini top styles here.

Cover Ups

Bleu Rod Beattie Caftan

I love pairing a printed cover up with a solid swimsuit and visa versa. I was drawn to the bold floral/leopard pattern on this gorgeous caftan. My mom was also swooning – in retrospect I think she was hinting that I should leave it at her place in Florida so she could wear it, oops! It’s airy and light and just generally fabulous.

More Cover-Ups I Love

Sunglasses, Sandals & Hats

Le Specs Sunglasses | Straw Bucket Hat | Tory Burch Cloud Sandals

Ok let’s talk about the hat first. Full disclosure, Emily in Paris got me hooked on the bucket hat trend, but it’s just as functional as it is fashionable. You can lean back in your chair without crunching your hat and the small visor is great for sun protection. It’s also packable so there is that.

I will forever be a Le Specs lover – the styles won me over, the price point sealed the deal. Any questions? Oh, mine are an older tortoise style in this exact style. If you like tortoise, this style is similar.

Lastly, oh the ways I love these sandals. Last year Tory Burch came out with the Cloud Sandals which have a comfier, more supportive footbed than her traditional, cult-favorite Miller Sandals. This year, she upped the ante by creating a cork footbed. If you like birks, consider these their boujee cousin. SO GOOD.
