Trends I'm Trying {& Loving}


When it comes to getting dressed each day, I tend to stick to the classics. Straight-leg denim, sweaters, blazers, and flats during the week. Feminine dresses or skirts with heels on the weekends. I'm a creature of habit, but really it's more than that. I know myself now. I know what I like, what my body looks best in, and what I feel confident wearing. There's a certain comfort factor in all this, and that's the true beauty of it. But, I realize that dressing in the same manner all the time can become boring, and fashion should NOT be boring. I  like to try new things every so often to keep things fun and light. As long as a trend meets my criteria, I'll try it!

Here are three trends I'm trying, and really enjoying too.


Cuffed denim, or rolling up my jeans. 

Wearing Loft jeans, but love these by J Brand as well
Still loving my French Connection bag too




Statement Earrings




Now that I've cut my hair shorter, I feel the need to play up my face with bold statement earrings. I usually opted for a delicate stud, but I think when your hair is longer, earrings can often get lost so it was a natural choice for me. In fact, most days I wouldn't wear earrings at all. That is starting to change, and I've been on the hunt for some bold drop earrings with tons of sparkle and maybe a little color as well. 


Short Hair


Whether wavy, curly, or straight...still loving shorter hair. No regrets here.

  1. Love the trends you've chosen - those earrings are ALL so FAB! I agree - while it's great to know what works for you - it's good to experiment a bit...it is fun and sometimes things we think won't suit us, actually are great once we try them - for me, it was colored denim LOL - I thought no way am I trying that trend - and now I have several pairs :-)

    1. Thanks Ella! You look amazing in colored denim, so I know what you mean about trying something new. It never hurts! You might end up loving a trend you might have passed up.

  4. I am so glad short(er) hair is making a comeback since a) my hair doesn't grow long and b) I looked ridiculous with extensions. I keep hearing/reading that statement earrings are going to be big this year. I'm all for that, I just hope they find ways to keep them light weight! I hate when they get too heavy! Loved this post. :) -Gina

  5. I would never ever consider your style boring! Not one bit! I'm really jealous of your hair! You wear it well! I have told everyone close to me to forbid me from ever cutting my hair - I just always regret it. It looks so great on you though, and your inspiration photos!
