Under the rainbow

We went to the pumpkin patch last weekend and spotted this huge rainbow arch out near the parking lot. So, of course, jumping pictures followed. Because who doesn’t want to jump under a giant rainbow?

 

Tie-dye striped tank top, Loft; braided waist Lauren Conrad shorts, Kohl’s; gold bejeweled sandals, Marshall’s; Betsey Johnson bow bag, old, Ross; heart sunglasses, old,Ross.

I’ve been shopping the end of season clearance sales, which is where I found my outfit. I had credits to spend at both Kohl’s and Loft. Both tank top and shorts were less than $10. In fact, I had to go hunt for another item at Loft because I couldn’t use up the credit on my tank top after they took the additional percentage off that the clearance items were. They wouldn’t let me use the credit unless I could spend the whole amount. I also had money to spend at Victoria’s Secret, but their stuff is so expensive I settled for just buying underwear. Ha.

One thing I liked about these shorts was the braided denim waistline. It’s like having a built in denim belt on your shorts. The front pockets are very 70’s style. The shirt has fun almost tie-dyed like stripes on it. If you want to catch the end of summer clearance sales, they are going fast, so you’ll have to get out there and grab them before they’re gone!

If you are able to get out to a pumpkin patch, do so while the warm weather holds. I’m sure it will be rainy and muddy by the end of the month – at least in Oregon.

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.
