Stars, Sweaters, and Snakes

The new year has started, and with that, I thought it was high time to delve into the world of fashion again!

Living in a college town, there are constantly new styles coming into the stores and boutiques and over the past couple of weeks, I’ve noticed several patterns of items that continually make a reappearance.

  1. Stars

Everywhere you look, there are stars! Whether it’s earrings, leggings, or a cute pullover with silver sequin stars, if you’re out shopping, this is going to be one pattern you’ll need in your wardrobe.

2. Lace

Lace is a beautiful addition to any fabric, and the particular clothing that I’ve seen them the most on are simple, sweet camisoles. While these tops aren’t flashy, they’re a great staple to have in your closet and can either be dressed up or down, depending on your accessories, shoes, and jacket.

3. Animal patterns

Cheetah, leopard, snake-skin, and more! Animal patterns are in, and you can find them practically anywhere. Whether you like to keep it on the more subtle tone, or enjoy contrasting colors, there is enough variety that anyone can find a variation they like.

4. Chenille Knit Sweaters

Y’all, if you don’t have one of these sweaters, you need to get one! It is literally the softest most comfortable fabric, and luckily for us, quite popular! They come in dozens of colors, and my only precaution would be, either buy it in a larger size or DON’T dry it. I learned this the hard way haha.

Those are some of my favorite fashion items that are popular that I’ve seen! What about y’all? Any colors, patterns, or clothing items that you’ve noticed? Let me know in the comments below!

What’s New?

How are all my fellow shopping and fashion lovers out there doing?! With school starting, I thought I would let y’all know some of my thoughts on the current fashion trends!

Let’s start off then!

First of all, off-the-shoulder pieces are super popular right now. Everywhere I go, I’ve been seeing them: bathing suits, tops, dresses – you name it, and someone has probably made it into this style!

Another trend are jumpers and rompers. I’m sure y’all have seen them in several different stores. This past semester at college, I purchased a cute romper from Kinnucan’s. The top part has a ruffle, there’s a bow/belt you tie around your waist, and it has a white plus neutral striped pattern. I love it!

Besides that, my aunt graciously bought me an adorable, simple white romper from D’Squared. The material is really light and airy – perfect for summer!

With my height, finding a romper that is actually long enough can be a challenge. Luckily, I found two that have worked so far. If y’all know any good places to shop for tall girls, comment below! 🙂

Blush pink is IN. Everywhere I go, I’ve seen tons of items that are blush pink. And not only clothing, but others as well – like bedding or stationary!

I absolutely love this color, so I’m super excited that it’s one of those “in” shades.

Funny story for y’all, when I was getting ready for my first year at college, I started to look for bedding and decorative items. I found a picture on Pinterest that I loved, and decided that I was going to try and model my dorm room after it.

One of the main colors, along with gold, was blush pink. My mom and I looked everywhere, but for the life of us, we could not find anything! So we decided to switch the blush pink for a soft teal color.

Looking back, it’s funny to think about, because now I see blush pink items everywhere!

Another popular color, similar to blush pink, is rose gold!

So pretty!

How is y’all’s summer/school fashion coming along? Did you find any cute pieces? Let me know in the comments below!
