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.

 Happy Fourth of July all!

Hope everyone is enjoying their day.

Remember to thank some one who is serving or has served.

They are pretty important people.

Now go enjoy a cold beer, a hot dog and blow some shit up.

Because ‘Murica

Oh hey Summer.

Holy crap,

It is officially summer.

Which is weird to me because it has felt like summer for the past 2 months. Now we are just in this weird humid hellmouth. (southern weather + curls = mean)

But still, I feel like it was just New Years Eve. and now I’m one week away from turning 26, my VISTA year is over in exactly 2 months, and I have no idea what the heck I am doing with my life. (but let’s be honest with ourselves. no one know what they are doing, we are just all really good at pretending to be adults.)

But with all that real life stuff aside (future Cassi can deal with that later!) I must say I am very happy with my choice to stay here.  I feel like I got a lot of push back from people who think I am insane for not coming back up north after this VISTA year. And maybe I am insane. Who knows.

But so far this summer has been filled with going to the fairs, balloon adventures, cook outs, karaoke nights, movie dates, hiking, and soon my first ever canoeing adventure.

I’m excited to see what it brings next 🙂

Style Me Savvy: SUIT UP

These past few sunny weekend have had my mind going crazy for summer.
And of course summer time means, new bathing suits.  With  stores starting to promote their Spring/Summer lines, I have gotten a good look at what suits I would like to see make their way into my summer collection.

Style Me Savvy: This is Sparta!

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!
