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.

Party outfits

 

Loving the 20’s flapper girl style dresses out there right now. Plus, gunmetal gray, yes please! Sparkly sequined jumpsuits and pants are a must have as well. Beads, fringe & flare are all in for New Years Eve. A jumpsuit or sparkly pants might be a warmer option for cold nights, but you can always add tights, tall boots and warm coats to keep you warm. Go big or go home.

 

People say 'Go big or go home' like it's a bad thing. Hell yeah, I wanna go home. And I'm gonna take a nap when I get there.

 

I don’t have any fun plans for New Years Eve this year, but a quiet night in sounds just fine to me. If I did go out, I would definitely find something shiny and sparkly to wear.

I’ll be spending this weekend with family as my sisters family will all be up for the holiday weekend. Maybe we’ll end up at Powell’s bookstore or Ikea as the weather is going to be rainy and cloudy.

To all of you going out to party the night away, be safe and have fun.
