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?

Leave it in the comments.

What to Wear for Memorial Day

Who doesn’t love a three-day weekend?!
Especially one where you are pretty much expected to stay outside, have cook outs and drink beers with friends.
And of course look cute while doing it!
So in honor of Memorial Day weekend I have put together some of my favorite cookout/pool party/beach trip attire.

The Queen B’s : Spring List

It has been a while since I have busted out a Recent Obsession section. Which is weird seeing as it is my favorite one to write.  But do not fear- I have decided to bring it back!

I will admit it.  At times I can be a total creature of habit. I find things that I love and I obsess over them until…well until I’m sick of them.  (  I can also be insanely fickle with material things and I change my mind SUPER quickly.. basically I’m a walking contradiction. but whatever.)  

But, this blend of being fickle and a love for consistency has led to a cycle of things to love. For the time being at least

Basics:

I have never really been one for chap stick. I will buy them, but then I’ll lose them or stop using them because I’m weird like that. But back in February my boyfriend’s sister brought me back a coconut chap stick from her trip to Hawaii and… I am obsessed.  The best way I can describe it is that is smell like summer. Which of course just makes me a super happy little girl. (and makes me wish I was at the beach). It has quickly become a staple in my make- up bag.

Beverage:

Iced Skinny Vanilla Macchiato

Is there a difference between this and a vanilla latte??!! I couldn’t really tell you.  But it makes me happy and broke all at the same time.. Thanks Starbucks.

Bandwagon:

Overalls

Yup that is right I said it.

I don’t know when these came back into fashion, but they have been popping up all over my dashboard for the past month. At first I was a little (ie very) skeptical. But the more I see them, the more I can’t wait to add a cute pair to my closet. It does seems to be a hit or miss trend that can very easily become ” I reverted back to a 12-year-old with no idea what fashion is”. But hey, what is life without some risks.

Seriously, I love this girl. I don’t know her personally and I probably will never meet her. (BUT…I wish I could because I’m pretty sure we would be best friends.) Her blog cracks me up and I look forward to every new post.  From one Southern transplant to another I feel I can’t relate to most of the crazy that is her life.

If you like humor, drawings on post it notes, and reading about other people’s life. Then her blog is definitely for you.

Book:

Divergent

Yup, I also jumped on that bandwagon. I can’t help it. I’m a sucker for stories about what the world is going to be like once we screw it up with wars and shit. It’s no Hunger Games. But it does fill the void left in my little book nerd heart.
