Ballet Beautiful Buzz #11

Wear: Bodysuits!

It's no secret that ballet inspired fashion is very popular right now. From Vogue to Style Salute - everyone is talking about how to get the look. Part of this trend involves bodysuits, or as we like to call them here at Ballet Beautiful: leotards! The combination of a chic leotard with high waisted jeans or a full skirt is the ultimate ballet street style look. Check out our recent blog post to see how Mary Helen elegantly masters the bodysuit trend.

Shop: Natural Skincare Products

The more we learn about unnecessary synthetic chemicals and toxins in our beauty and skincare products the more we are inspired to shop for natural products with organic ingredients. With so many new holistic brands out there, it is now easier than ever to start making changes towards a toxin-free skincare routine. In our search for cleaning up our beauty routine we came across a great website called Content Beauty that stocks only brands that pass their sourcing policy test and lists all the product ingredients on their website so you know exactly what you are buying. It has been a wonderful resource for finding great products you can trust and for making this transition easier.

Learn: Bill Cunningham New York Documentary

We recently came across this fascinating and moving documentary about the incredible Bill Cunningham. Bill was an American fashion photographer for The New York Times for nearly 40 years, and was known for his candid and street photography. His photographic columns covered the social scene and fashion on the streets of New York. This intimate portrait of Bill shows why he was a visionary genius and the best street style photographer the fashion industry has ever seen.

When the weather is HOT there is nothing more satisfying than a cold delicious drink. That's why we have been obsessed with all the refreshing summer beverages in this post. They have been the perfect healthy drinks to take to barbecues and summer get togethers. We recently made the Watermelon and Lime Cooler and it was such a hit that everyone was asking for the recipe.

Watch: Abstract: The Art of Design

We are loving this cool new show on Netflix. It is a documentary series highlighting visionary artists in the field of design. Every episode stands as its own film as it follows a different designer working in various artistic fields ranging from photography to architecture. In each episode you are given an inside look at each artists' creative process and are left feeling fascinated and inspired. We highly recommend it if you're looking for something new and interesting to watch!
