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

A White-Out in Summer

 

White is that perfect go to color (or lack of color) that is basically a perfect choice especially during the summer season. Today’s post highlights a fun dress made by Stylestalker. The sides have dual purpose cutouts that provide oodles of style and cool comfort on a hot summer day. The dress is well constructed with nude mesh above the bust area so the dress holds a beautiful shape and there is no fear of any wardrobe malfunctioning J.   You look just as good from the back in this dress as you do from the front. The extra long zipper detail is an added plus. I can’t say enough about the versatility of this great piece. Making another command performance are my summer favorite Steve Madden Wedges in nude patent. I accessorized with a wide white and yellow gold Judith Ripka bracelet and the 13mm crown ring with clear stone by King Baby. As with so many of the outfits I choose and pull together, this is one that would suit many occasions and would be spot on.

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!

A Miami Must Have

Just out the front door OF The Ritz Carlton, South Beach there is a small boutique packed with pieces ranging in style from South Beach sexy to preppy Northeast. You just don’t know what you’ll find from rack to rack. I found and fell in love with this backless beauty by Karma.  Although I had no special occasion on the calendar, I just knew I needed to have this go to dress.  It just has so much going for it.  Of particular note is the crinkly polyester fabric.  It is a traveler’s dream.  The neutral color is rich and gives an added touch of elegance, which when coupled with the delicate lace bodice and backless features, you have a dress that is so versatile and so special.  The dress gives a slight nod to the high/low hem trend, but not so much so that it will be out of date when the trend is.  The high is ever so slight so that the shoes peek from the hem line in front and the back has the slightest puddle of fabric, just brilliant.  The shoe I favored with this dress is a simple nude patent leather wedge with peep toe by Steve Madden.  The Wicker clutch with brass seashell detail was found in a floral shop at the Jersey Shore.  I wore a pair of gold, ivory and crystal chandelier earrings and a gold upper arm bracelet tattoo.  My hair was done in a side fishtail so that the bodice and back of the dress could fully be appreciated.  To say I love this dress is an understatement.  It is so comfortable and you can’t help but feel good in it.  This will definitely be in my suitcase when I pack for Cabo later this summer!
