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.
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?!?
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.
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.
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?

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!
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.
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?
Top 4 at the SAG Awards 2017
Evan Rachel Wood
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
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:
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.
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.
Susan Kelechi Watson
All of the Stranger Things Kids.
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:
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)
Those who know me know that I have a slight (okay .. huge) shoe addiction. If I could have a room filled with just shoes it would be the second best room in my house. (my future library will always win first).
So when I saw this photo of Kourtney Kardashian rocking these AMAZING gladiator sandals. I fell head over heals in love.
Sadly those exact beauties do not have a price tag attached to them that make then sensible for those of us who do not have our own TV series. So I put myself on a mission to find myself a less expensive and just as amazing version of these for the upcoming spring/summer season.

As usual, my go to shoe lover Steve Madden did not disappoint me! I would like to introduce you to Sparta. At 100 dollars these are a steal and I cannot wait to have them in my closet!
