{Buzzing into the First Day of Summer with Chicwish}

DTKAustin shares her love for black and white with this bee detailed top from Chicwish. Shoes from Splendid, Shorts from Alice & Olivia and bag from Henri Bendel. Click for more details and photos.

Happy first day of Summer! Is it bad I thought summer was already here in Texas?? Judging from the 90-100 degree days we’ve been having it’s been hard to differentiate! This is why I need to find a summer vacation spot where I’m not profusely sweating everywhere I go. Or I just need to start dressing like I’m going to be laying out on a beach everyday! Since neither of those are viable options at this point I have to dress strategically and comfortably when you really want nothing touching your skin at all.

If you’re still on the hunt for a beautiful summer top I’ve got the perfect one for you. I always love finding pieces that will stand out above the rest whether it be in the fabric, construction or intricate detailing. Don’t get me wrong, I do love my basics, and this outfit is beyond basic black and white, but I do love to wear something that is practical yet fun at the same time.

One of the things that sold me on this beautiful blouse, besides the fact that it is under $40, was the cute little bee detailing on the front and honeycomb design. Funny story though; this top actually has short sleeves and is supposed to be worn as a cold shoulder top but honestly the fit was much better with wearing it as simple tank top (as shown). The ruffle detailing where the sleeves are look like its a natural part of the top. If you have a smaller bust I would suggest wearing it the normal way but for us bustier gals this top was a little on the frumpy side.

I kept my accessories pretty simple and monochromatic on this look solely because there is so much going on with the top itself. For me, wearing black is second nature so I kept things consistent with accessorizing. These Splendid heels have the most gorgeous wood heel detailing and have been some of my summer go-to heels. They are actually on sale for under $100 right now but are limited in sizes so don’t wait long!! If you’re in the market for a classic, black bag this Henri Bendel has been my go-to for quite some time now. They are ALSO having a huge sale on their site right now!

 Everything you want to shop is all linked below. This top is now only available in Small and Medium but also comes in Black as well. Use code JUL10 for 10% off your order!

Top – Chicwish (Comes in Black!!) // Shorts – Alice & Olivia

    That bee detail is the cutest! It’s a nice little relief from all the fruit prints I’ve seen lately (although I love those, too). I’d totally wear this for a hot day in Texas!

    I LOVE this look! I wear a lot of black, but in the summer I like to incorporate more white in because of the heat. Could the bee embellishments on your top be any cuter?!

    I saw this top recently while I was online shopping, but I didn’t think it would look nearly as good ON! It’s seriously the cutest, and the little bee + honeycomb detailing is just darling.
