On the day I had the pleasure of meeting Olivia Kim, VP of Creative Projects at Nordstrom and two AMAZING female athletes – Skylar Diggins, from the Dallas Wings and Sanya Richard Ross, Olympic Gold Medalist. Olivia spent some time walking us through the BEAUTIFUL space that was not only approachable, but inviting and feminine. As a female, when you walk in to any fitness store, it feels hard, heavy, masculine and your options are limited. The concept store that Nordstrom built out with Nike blurs the lines between fashion and sport in the most perfect way. Nike Beautiful x Powerful Cortez and Fitness holiday gift ideasThis is a fitness shop built for “her” after really understanding how a women dresses when she styles her fitness wear. Very rarely do you see something thats one thing top to bottom – women style their fitness wear with everyday.  They style it with their favorite denim, handbag, etc – Nordstrom x Nike have created a place where you can shop for those things all in once place! Genius!

For the store preview I styled this darling flared dress and layered it over this neck tie blouse – how cute is this!! I threw a cape over the look and my new Beautiful x Powerful Nike’s for a pop of color! I had such a blast shopping and just sitting in the pretty space. I wanted to steal all the decor and take it home with me!

During the showing, I had the opportunity to catch up with WBNA star Skylar Diggins on her personal style and her thoughts on the new concept store! I started off by asking her how she incorporates athletisure in to her everyday. Without hesitation she responded by saying “it’s my life” and how she “always has a pair of sneakers in her hand.” A girl after my own heart really.

She described her personal style as “tomboy chic” – which is the most elevated tomboy chic I have ever seen. She was sporting the most gorgeous leather skirt with zipper detailing and super comfy nike sweatshirt. She prides her sense of style on being able to go workout then to be able to grab some lunch with friends right after – athleisurewear has become so versatile these days that it’s so easy to make that transition!Nike Beautiful x Powerful Cortez and Athleisure fashion I had the most amazing time previewing the store and chatting with Skylar, she is amazing and so beautiful. Thank you to Nike x Nordstrom for the incredible opportunity! Check out the video from the opening here.
