Hello, hello, and welcome back! It's day four of The Blog-tember Challenge and we are talking fashion trends! I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but today's prompt was an easy answer for me ;) It's never too late to join in if you're just now discovering us! We'd love to have you along.
Yesterday was a great look into your worlds, and I love scrolling through the link up each night getting to know you better. I'm glad to find I'm not the only one in the middle of growing up (do we ever really get there?) and your stories are so encouraging to me!
Today's prompt: Pick a fashion trend you love and a fashion trend you hate. Win us over!
Yeah, this was a no brainer.
I am obsessed
--and I mean O B S E S S E D--
with my green army vest!
Last spring I spotted similar vests floating around pinterest, layered over t-shirts and stripes, dresses and jeans, and I set my heart on owning one right away. I worked at Anthropologie at the time and we had a similar vest but it just didn't suit my shape... or maybe I'm just picky. It remained at the top of my list for several weeks, and then I happened into Old Navy during there 30% off sale and BAM! It was light a spotlight fell from the sky on the green vest hanging in front of me. There may even have been a chorus of angel "Ah's" in the distance.
I wear it with everything. The day I got it home I tried it on with my entire wardrobe (...well more like 75%) and was hard pressed to find anything it didn't look good with!
Jeans? You bet!
Stripes, spots, zig-zags? It works!
Downplay it with neutrals, like my favorite black t-shirt dress and sandals, and I'm ready for work in an instant! Bling it out with a dazzling statement necklace for a little shine, or add layers to transition seasons and you are good to go. I hope this trend is here to stay. I plan to see it through!
As far as a trend I don't like... are leggings as pants still a thing? If so, that needs to go ASAP. If it is a pair of dark skinnies or jeggings even (that's a stretch...) then maybe. But please, choose a long top, be modest, and be aware. That's all I'm going to say on the matter.
What about you friends? What's on your list or in your look book these days?
