Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeasy

This look is definitely easy!! I found this simple summer dress when I was not looking for it.  It was one of those pieces that I knew I had to have because I could imagine numerous places and occasions where it would be perfect.  The loose, flowing design is ultra feminine and the crochet detailing at the neck and shoulders adds a bit of interest.  The light blue/grey color is great at the beach or on the town.  For the beach, barefoot is a great look.  Out and about, this dress calls for a simple thong sandal or could even be paired with a metallic gladiator.  I actually have that look packed for my imminent trip to Bermuda.  It is easy to pack, no wrinkles and can really go just about anywhere.  With the heatwave we are experiencing, the top knot is a great choice for the hair and it leaves the neck and shoulder area neat so that the dress can be fully appreciated.  Looks like this that require little to no accessories and a simple updo are priceless. Apply a touch of very natural makeup or just a nude lip and literally throw it on and go! Stay Cool, xo B

It’s a Wrap!

I am finding myself to be a big fan of all pieces that wrap. The Wrap look is feminine, flirty and many times ends in a brilliant Bow at some point, as today’s fabulous top does!! The Wrap look can be found in everything from dresses to rompers to tops.  It is a very forgiving yet flattering look and can be dressed up or down, so versatile and fun.  Today’s outfit is very simple, yet is elegant enough for just about anywhere your day or evening plans take you.  I paired this chambray blue wrap top with summer white shorts.  I chose a textured, white short with a side zipper to give a more sophisticated look.  When paired with a nude wedge sandal, the outfit becomes dressy and perfect for numerous adventures.  The best part of the ensemble is the terrific bow detail in the back.  You look equally good coming and going!! This outfit takes little effort, which makes it an especially good one! If it’s a cool evening, a long sweater or even a jean jacket would be perfect! And, that’s a Wrap! 🙂 xo B
