ice cream

All Bundled Up

I was not going to let the cold stand between me and my Momofuku. On this chilly day I knew I was going to need to bundle up to make the trek down to SoHo. I started by putting on a basic black turtleneck. This is a wardrobe staple. I practically lived in turtle necks the entire month of december. They keep you cozy and can be worn with absolutely anything. This one is made by Splendid, but I am also a fan of the Bloomingdale’s Cashmere. I paired it with some distressed denim that has flannel patches underneath the rips. It was a good start but I was certainly going to need more. That is when I spotted my Aqua camo vest. I am an avid lover of this pattern because it is a little bit more unique. Instead of using the traditional green hues, this vest is made up of grey, black and white tones. Best yet–it has a hood! I was getting closer to completing my outfit but it was still not quite there yet. I grabbed my oversized grey cashmere scarf and a matching head wrap. It could not have worked more perfectly! The head-wrap, adorned with a bow of course, could not be more perfect. Fabulous and Functional! I wore some super fuzzy socks to keep my toes warm and continued to stuff my feet into my black Timberland boots. I was ready to brave the cold and determined to get my cereal milk soft serve… Let me tell you it was so worth it!DSC_0145DSC_0147DSC_0148DSC_0151DSC_0196DSC_0152DSC_0181DSC_0184DSC_0190DSC_0188DSC_0186DSC_0153

Young, Wild and Free

 

Today’s post is an example in being on trend, but making it your own. Overalls, overalls, overalls are all the rage. At first, I said I’d never wear them. They were for the farm. I was so wrong, I absolutely love them! We see a lot of combining trends and wearing overalls with crop tops, a cute look. Many pair them with tank tops for the summer, also cute! I chose to try my own thing and I really like the look and hope you will too. I am all about being yourself and being comfortable with whom you are. Buzz From the B has helped me gain confidence in this area and being able to share my ideas with you is a big part of that. I hope that you will try new things too! Today I paired my Hudson denim overalls with an ecru lace blouse from Joe Fresh and I love the look. It adds a very soft and sweet side to the rugged overalls. It dresses them up a bit and it is not (until maybe now) what you will see everyone in. So, while you might not be the only one wearing overalls, you will definitely stand apart from the others with a different take on the trend. I happened to be going out that evening, so I threw on my Steve Madden nude patent cork wedges. This was a look that was easily pulled off because of the dressier top. It was a perfect look to go for ice cream in a Dream Ride. That perhaps is the best accessory of the post today!
