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.

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.

Tweed two ways

Going into the new year, I’m still loving the tweed trend. The only tweed I don’t like is when there are colors I don’t like in the pattern. This blue tweed jacket is becoming a staple piece in my wardrobe. I wore it here one way. Today I’m going to show you how I styled it another way.

My son found this wonderful bridge to take photos at. This time of year it’s a bit shady and cool in this spot but it looked like there was a park nearby that would be nice to visit on a warm sunny day.

Please tell me warm sunny days are coming soon! It is rainy and miserable in Oregon right now. But we had sun a few days ago, and I know it will return! The only problem is that when it returns it get really cold and windy out. I still think I’d rather have the sun than rain right now.

So, this time I wore the tweed with a cute pleated skirt from the Loft, black boots with a cute chain detail, sparkly tights – because you know I love me a little bit of sparkle! On the top I had a metallic top with a rose pattern, the blue tweed jacket, black cat eye sunglasses and metallic pave ball drop earrings. A fun look you could wear to the office, to church, or for a day on the town.

Here is a photo of how I styled the tweed before. I do love those shiny pants. So wonderful!
