Good As Gold

Everyone knows I have a long running obsession with rose gold. I think if its copper, rose gold, or marble I instantly want it. But there’s one shimmery, metallic that everyone can get behind: Gold. I do love gold whether its simple like a sweater or cute like sprinkles on Christmas cookies. Whether it’s being worn or just around the house, gold adds a little bit of excitement to everything. It’s just sparkly but chic and classic at the same time.

When it comes to gold, I’m more about the home decor and home goods than anything else. I am obsessed with these gold mixing bowls from Target, and I’m 100% positive my kitchen needs them ASAP. Sorry current vintage mixing bowls, you’re moment is over. I love this bar cart and flatware because they are just little accents rather than something overwhelming. A gold bar cart stands out as an accent piece in any room. Besides who doesn’t love a good bar cart?

Summer Trend: The Classic Neck Scarf

Being from the desert it’s a little hard to imagine me saying to rock a neck scarf, right? Well, truth be told, I’ve rocked a cool neck bandana a couple times despite the heat. Fashion is a sacrifice sometimes, right? But the real reason I fully support this summer trend is because there are so many other ways to wear them. One of my favorite ways is in my hair. It can hide unwashed hair while adding a little something extra to an updo. I really like the idea of adding them to my bag or around my ankle because it seems a little unique.

Trend Report: ‘Woven’ Bags

I’m a little skeptical of the woven bag trend. I see the appeal. It’s summer and they just scream summer. They are the perfect beach bag. Some of them even look like cute little baskets. They have come back in style time and time again. They are classics, and there are so many different options.

But then again, depending on style, they very much give off a beach bag feel. Also, I don’t really like stabbing myself accidentally with a piece of wicker. I suppose the pros outweigh the cons in this scenario. Maybe I’ll have to give one a go…

Trend Report: White Sneakers

As someone incredibly type A with OCD just the thought of white sneakers is enough to give me a panic attack. Why? Because I will obsessively try to keep them in pristine condition. “But you own Stan Smiths…” yeah that I’ve worn…a handful of times, and, yes, they are incredibly clean.

That is why I have a love/hate relationship with one of the biggest shoe trends right now: white sneakers. It’s not just white sneakers, but pretty much solid white sneakers for the most part. The ultimate canvas for grass, dirt, and every other stain imaginable. I love white sneakers because they are so pristine, classic, and can be paired with just about anything. They add a little bright pop to the most basic of outfits. They can make the best summer outfits look cool and casual. It’s true I love a good white sneaker…but mostly in theory. Sneakers are destined to be dirty. But since it’s summer and there’s that rule about only wearing white until Labor Day, it’s time to fully embrace the trend. There’s always those Magic Erasers to clean them up right?

I’ve included a bunch of different kinds to match any style. There are pops of color for the scared of solid white crowd, textured, It-Girl approved, and even the classic Keds (for dipping ones toe into the water). Plus the Keds are the most classic summer shoe.

Summer Trend Report

Every season there is a mountain of trends to keep track of. Even while brainstorming this post I had to dig through more than I could probably recall from memory. Everything from yellow to graphic prints and off the shoulder to stripes will occupying our favorite stores for the next few months. So with that in mind, I’ve chosen four of those trends I can really get behind for summer.

Not into these? I’m also partial to white dresses, white sneakers, and, of course, stripes.

Styled: Boyfriend Jeans

A good pair of boyfriend jeans are a wardrobe essential. A girl can never have too many different pairs of jeans. Boyfriend jeans go in and out of style, but right make an outfit look relaxed without trying very hard. They are often baggy with a low waist which is a very 90s type of silhouette for girls. Boyfriends jeans can offset dainty pieces like lace or crop tops to add a little something extra to an outfit.

It girls and fashion girls love boyfriends jeans so there’s plenty of places to look for inspiration. One of my favorite ways to wear distressed boyfriend jeans is with a baggy sweater and loafers. It looks effortlessly chic but not too relaxed where it becomes frumpy. There are tons of different washes, styles, and brands to check out so it’s easy to find the right pair.

If you haven’t considered them before or thought they were out of style here is some inspiration to guide you.
