Fashion Friday: The Cold Shoulder

This comes across as one of those trends that everyone loves to hate, but no one wants to actually try.

Well friends, I tried the cold shoulder and I am ready to incorporate it into my closet as much as possible. ( there is a chance I MAY have bought a CS Romper on Poshmark a couple weeks ago #noshame). 

There is something about these shoulder baring tops that hit the perfect blend of cute and sexy all at once. Which of course make them easy to wear to any occasion that comes up this Summer season.

Show Some Leg

Shorts are a staple for summer

Especially in the death heat that is Alabama summer.

Sadly, my closet is down to about one pair that fits

On the bright side, that means I have an excuse to add this year’s trends to my closet.

Show some leg

<br/>

1)

Patches have made a comeback and my tween heart doesn’t care how lame you think this is!!! Downside- AE is charging WAY more than they should for this trend. Plus side- Thrift stores have so many shorts and you can buy patches on Etsy or at Michael’s pretty cheap. DIY patch party anyone?!?

2)

Matching two piece sets have been on my skeptical list for a while now. At first, all I could think about was how tacky it was going to look having all the same pattern on. But the more I see it on people, the more I fall in love with this trend. Personal Tip- keeping it to one bold pattern is enough. I have seen some that get a little too extra. For me, that just makes go down hill fast.

3)

Oh, the love-hate relationship I have with rompers. I have always been afraid of them due to being so short. But this year I’m throwing away all those fear and I am on the hunt for the perfect one This one for Charlotte Russe is a close contender- Because really who can say no to cut outs AND floral.

4)

Another year has come and I still have not made it to the holy grail that is Coachella. Of course, that isn’t gone to stop me from letting my inner wild child shine and stocking my closet with festival shorts. High on the list are these ones with the side lace for a little extra fun. ( maybe add some patches! All the trends.)

What is the short trend you all are looking forward to most?

Swim into Spring

Happy Second Day of Spring!

(Yes this is going up a day later than I wanted it to.. oops)

I don’t know about you all, but I am so ready for sunshine and warm days.

Sadly my wardrobe is a little less ready.

Which clearly means it is time for me to start searching fort the perfect spring trends.

I’m dedicating every Tuesday from now until May to searching and sharing my favorite spring trends!

Up first  Swimwear!

Swim into Spring

<br/>

For me- this summer will be all about cut-outs, halter necklines (this year’s tan lines are going to be the best!) and bold colors/patterns!

What is your favorite swim trend? Let me know in the comments.

Style Me Savvy: All Choked Up

All Choked Up

<br/>

1)    2)    3)   4) 

Chokers are making a fashion comeback and I for one could not be happier. Personally, I am a bigger fan of the ones that have the choker and a secondary layering necklace. But let’s be honest you really cannot go wrong with any of them.  Thank you 90’s fashion Gods for bringing this trend back.. and please never take it away from me.

What is everyone’s favorite choker trend?

Chrissy Teigen

This was so hard because Queen Chrissy can pretty much do NOTHING wrong. I didn’t want to do another Top 4 Tie.. But I also couldn’t make this post without gushing over this look.  Out all the outfits on the Red Carpet for this event her outfit is the only one I could picture wearing on the regular.

“Why Do I Love This” Award

Nicole Kidman

I don’t care what anyone says- this dress is adorable. It sparkles and has feathers. You took a risk Mrs. Kidman and it worked perfectly!

“You Tried” Award:

maisewilliams

Maisie Williams

Don’t get me wrong.. I LOVE both of these looks– Just..not together. The dark goth make up and the almost skin colored dress.. I just can’t with them together.  So close Maisie.. So close.

Favorite 4: Golden Globes edition

It is my favorite time of year again, AWARD SHOW SEASON!!!  

The time of year where I sit around my TV or computer dreaming that one day my shot will come and I will be on the red carpet were Valentino . ( hey…. A girl can dream can’t she!)  Until that day comes, I will have to deal with living vicariously through the rich and famous. Lucky for you ( or unlucky .. depends on how you look at it) I’ll be here all awards season with my top looks from each event.

First up.. Sunday 1.8.2017 Nights Golden Globes: (full disclaimer I didn’t get to watch the Golden Globes this year- so all of this is based off photos)

When I started scrolling through picture, I will say I was disappointed, there was nothing that stood out to me as amazing. Thankfully after about 10 photos that all changed and this became very hard to narrow it down to my top 4 favorites for Women.

 Umm this is your first real big red carpet and you all look like pros.. A+ to your stylist!

“Why do I love this “ Award:

janelle-malone

Janelle Monae

No idea why- but I would totally wear this.

“Nope- Just nope” Award:

….. I just can’t. Natalie you are a seasoned pro at this point.  I know you are pregnant.. But you can do better than this.

Jill- I’m all about this trend…. But please take note from all the other ladies wearing pants/suits on the red carpet. You are at the Golden Globes NOT the MTV Music Awards circa 2003. #knowyouraudiance

I’m not even going to touch the topic of Pharrell… You know what you did- we don’t need to keep reminding you. At this point, I think you just do it on purpose. (if you don’t know what he did… click here. Because I don’t even have the words to deal with it this year)

The Queen B’s: 2016 recap

I’m not even going to try and make an excuse for why it has been almost 2 years since I posted anything. (Because let’s be honest- I have no good excuse other than I am lazy AF)

Instead- I’m just going to jump into my 2016 wrap up and start getting things ready for 2017.

Basic:

Trust Fund Matte Lipgloss in: K, Bye

While writing this I have discovered that they no longer carry this color on the website. My heart is breaking a little since I now have to make this one last for the rest of my life. Most people know I am all about the bold lips – but I had been searching for something I could throw on at 5 on my way to work. At this time I could not get my hands on any Kylie Lip kits and was failing to find the right dupe to add to my collection. Then the Ipsy gods sent me “K, Bye” and my world changed. . It is just dark enough that you can tell it is on, but light enough to wear every day to work. The formula is long-lasting (no one likes to have to always reapply) and it does not dry out your lips. I really have no idea what I will do when this tube runs out now 😦

Book:

“ Maybe in Another Life”- By Taylor Jenkins Reid

I read almost all of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s books in 2016… I think there is still one out there I have to add to the list for 2017. I think out of all of them “Maybe in Another Life” is my favorite. Without giving anything away- the story has our main character have to make one life choice at the end of her night- Does she go home with the handsome man…or does she just go home…. Then splits into two tales following how different her life would go in each scenario. It was interesting to see the similarities and differences in her life and how just ONE choice can change everything about the path we with we are one.

Bandwagon:

Jamberry Nail Wraps:

Seriously… 2016 was the year of Jamberry for me. I blame Jaime F ( if you’re out there S just know the obsession is still real). If you haven’t tried them, I highly recommend them. I’m pretty sure I have spent way more money on these beauties then I should admit. I also got a few other friends just as hooked on them. Whatever my nails look great (when I do them) and we help keep Jackie in business.

Beauty:

Magical Silver Unicorn Hair:

ombre

Not me… Picture found Via pinterest.

Okay maybe this won’t become a FULL thing until 2017 (damn you dark ass hair that takes forever to lighten). But I am obsessed with the idea of having long silver ombre hair. I saw the trend on Buzzfeed back in August and have been working on the process ever since. I’ve hit a few bumps in the adventure, but I haven’t fully given up hope yet!.

Beats:

Closer – The Chainsmokers ft.Halsey

I actually cannot explain what it is about this song that I love… but ever since the first time I heard it I have been obsessed.
