Current trend I’m loving

Do you ever see a fashion trend you love right away while others may take some time to warm up to? Well this trend is one I’ve liked right from the get-go.

 

Burgundy pants, white button up shirt, black faux fur collar cardigan, black booties and cat eye sunglasses

 

I’m talking about racing stripes on the side of clothes. Mostly I like them on the sides of pants, but they could also be on the sleeves of a top or the sides of a dress as well. Super cute.

I found the pair I’m wearing in this photo at Old Navy. I had a $5 Verizon Up reward, searched through the clearance racks for something I liked in my size and found this for $10.50. So I got them for $5.50. Whoohoo! I love a good deal.

I paired my new pants with the racing stripe down the side with a white button up shirt, black wedge booties, a black faux fur cardigan, black leather jacket for extra warmth on a cold day plus a retro white purse and my cat ear Betsey Johnson sunglasses. (Still love these sunglasses the most out of all my sunglasses!)

What are some current trends you’re loving right now? And which ones are you still on the fence about? I’m still trying to decide how I feel about snakeskin print. I think that is one trend where a little bit goes a long way, and is kind of fun in unexpected colors. But definitely don’t wear it head to toe. Way. Too. Much. Snakeskin.

Super soft chenille sweater

This chenille sweater, you guys. So soft. I walked by it on a clearance rack at Charlotte Russe, it looked soft, so I reached out and touched it. Or the pink version of this sweater. I immediately picked it up.Then traded it for the blue when I realized I already have a soft pink sweater.  It was an additional 40% of the clearance price, so I got it for a little over $7. Score! I love getting a good deal on anything. Clearance racks are my jam!

 

Navy coat, blue sweater, black eyelet lace skirt, pink infinity scarf, Betsey Johnson handbag + black knee high boots

This is not the first time I’ve walked by something made from a super soft material and immediately knew I had to have it. If it looks soft, I have to feel the softness. If it’s on someone I may even ask if I can touch it. Can’t. Resist. Softness. My poor soft kitties know this. They see me coming and run. Well, maybe not the bigger of the two kitties, she’s too lazy to run, but the other one does. They are softness personified.

Does anyone else do this with things that look soft? Or am I the only one? I can’t be the only one. Somebody out there also reaches out to touch soft looking things. I just know it.

It has been super cold this week, and for some reason, we ended up by the river in Troutdale taking these photos. Even colder there with the wind whipping down the river. I am so ready for winter to be over. Just say no to snow from now on out! March starts tomorrow and I’m asking the snow to please go away now. Spring is almost here. The time for snow is passing. Move along already.

Since this chenille sweater is on clearance, I’ve linked up a couple more that look just like it below.
