Every now and then, I go through phases in various parts of my life. For example, a few weeks ago, I went through a phase when I ate onion rings almost everyday. Currently, I’m exiting my black coffee and almond with a dash of cinnamon phase. I’ve also gone through bright lipstick phases and the overgrown eyebrows phase, but I might bringing those back for the summer. Another phase I might be going through this summer is the need to buy and wear nautical blue stripes.
My blue stripe phase wasn’t planned, but it’s happening. In the past couple of months, I’ve bought 2 different shirts with 2 different sizes of blue stripes. Also, I’m tracking a skirt with nautical blue stripes on it’s way to my doorstep as I type. Therefore, I’m in this phase and I’m still interested in adding to it. Keep reading to see what other striped items are perfect for my latest phase.
Don’t let the title of this post and the color of the header fool. I’m not the biggest fan of the color pink, except for polishes and makeup. However, every now and then, I fancy a little pink in my life. Currently, I’ve been all about pink sneakers and thankfully there are plenty of them out there. I’m not sure if it’s the anxiety of summer approaching or just the fact that pink sneakers are killing the game right now. Whatever it is, I’m in!
If you’re kind of feeling pink sneakers or just into sneakers, then this post is for you.
It’s Memorial Day weekend, which means an extended weekend. This long weekend, I’ve been invited to a couple of Memorial Day barbecues. Now, when it comes to styling my ideal backyard BBQ look, I have a couple of requirements. I prefer clothing that’s not snug or too light in color. Now that I think about it, that’s my requirement for most of outfit choices. However, in this case, I prefer to not feel like an overstuffed sausage while eating grilled overcooked sausages. So, the looser, the better. Also, I’m kind of clumsy when eating, especially BBQ. So, whites are off limits, because ruining any white clothing is stressful.
Some people consider Memorial Day the beginning of summer. However, I look it as the end of spring. Maybe we should use this weekend to wear our last bit of springy colors. So, if you are still on the fence about what to wear to any upcoming backyard BBQ or summer party, keep reading to get all the details for this inspired look to help you say “goodbye” to spring and “Hey, girl!” to summer.
Well, based on pictures from some of my favorite fashion girls on Instagram, this summer is going to be all about having a chic straw bag. Personally, I can’t recall owning a straw bag that I bought with my own money. I do recall a couple of Easters when my mom accessorized my Easter dress with a white straw purse. The bags were cute, but totally not my decision. Now, that straw bags are having their moment, I guess I need to make a decision or should I say “draw straws” (I crack myself up sometimes) on if I’m going to be carrying around a straw bag this summer.
So, If you are interested in hopping on the straw bag train, keep reading to see how to get in on this trend.
My favorite trend in jewelry right now are wearing single stud earrings. Yes, another trend we took from men. However, it cancels out since some men wear earrings in both ears, which is great. Over the past few months, I’ve noticed more jewelry and designers adding single stud earrings to their lines.
However, if you’re like me and lost an earring and some single earrings laying around, this trend is for you. Keep reading to find out more about this latest jewelry trend.
