From sweat session to cocktail hour

Look and feel your best in the gym, after the gym and everywhere in between.

braveLOOKS + Hot Child Summer in the City


It’s July.  We’re all running around town sweating our (perky) butts off and trying to look cute while doing it.  If you’re anything like us, you’re jetting from appointment to appointment in a constant state of “glisten” (and by glisten we mean sweat is literally and figuratively dripping down our backs!)

No matter the season, we here at BBP are committed to rocking what we call “Studio to Street” fashion.  We love finding workout clothes that can transition into “out on the town” clothes and our newest obsession comes in the form of short shorts and sneaker heels.

Let’s break it down.  You spend all day running, squatting, jumping, spinning and lunging.  With all lower body action, you’re entitled to some serious leg showcasing.  And since we’re battling the heat, what better way to showcase those gams than with a cute, moisture-wicking, 4-way stretch short.  Our favorites?  Read on.


The Lululemon Run: Speed Short *4-Way Stretch

Why? Easy.

Lululemon made these shorts to keep us feeling comfortable and cool from training days to race day. A continuous drawcord is easy to cinch mid-stride so we can streak past our personal records.

Features we love:

  • four-way stretch Swift Ultra fabric is lightweight and sweat-wicking
  • continuous drawcord is easy to cinch
  • secure your keys and cards in the back zipper pocket, and pack your gels in the two waistband pouches
  • wide Light Luxtreme® fabric waistband has added LYCRA® fibre for shape retention and lies flat under your top

The Sweaty Betty Triple Jump Run Short

Why? Again, let us explain.

These Ultra-lightweight sweat-wicking shorts featuring Sweaty Betty’s statement Marbled Wing Print. Perfect for summer running, these shorts feature flattering rear and side mesh panelling, plus a mesh knicker, drawcord and key pocket keep everything in place.

Now let’s get down with it… to the feet that is.  We’re a sucker for Nike Dunks and Wedges (we just can’t resist!)

The Nike Dunk Sky Hi Sneaker

The Nike Dunk Sky Hi iD Women’s Shoe takes the legendary Nike Dunk to new heights with a concealed wedge heel. Premium Liberty fabrics are customizable on the upper, while supportive overlays and court-inspired traction deliver a secure, comfortable fit.  Bottom line: your legs will look on point with the lift the shoe gives!  We love!

Puma My-66 Blue Wedge

We love the combo of leather and suede, the vintage feel of the shoe and the detail in the straps and hook and closures.
