It’s been a hot minute since I did a Tuesday Trends post but your girl is bringing them back because they are some of my favs! Is it weird that making these collages is almost therapeutic to me?! I bet most bloggers would tell you i’m crazy for saying that because they take hours!
While none of these are “new” trends by any means, they are certainly in full force this season! I went from being a camo hater to lover in 0.2 seconds. It’s funny how we see trends pop up and tell ourselves “you’ll never catch me in that” and then end up eating our words later on. I used to think camo was just for rednecks and hunting season but somehow the fashion industry has turned it into arguably this season’s hottest print. Camo silk scarves have become a thing y’all and there ain’t nothing redneck about that. I slowly started my camo obsession with this pair of Levi’s (pictured below) and it’s only gone crazy from there.
Now when it comes to the plaid epidemic, I actually had no idea how popular glen plaid (or that that was the name of it for that matter) was until fashion week when every single blogger showed up in a plaid blazer! And here I was thinking I was rocking a very unique blazer.. WRONG! While glen plaid blazers are all the rage right now, you will find everything from sock booties to pant suits. My favorite blazer that I have found is this one from Express (pictured below). If you would like a less expensive option, this one from Target is very similar!
And arguably my favorite trend this season because it’s usually so hard to find is leopard! I’ve always been a fan of leopard accessories, like my leopard pumps for the office and leopard scarf to wear with tunics and over the knee boots, but I love that you can now find leopard everything. This leopard shirt has been a top seller for the blog (runs true to size). I’ve dressed it down for the weekend and up for the office. Leopard is definitely a print that is timeless and classy which makes it perfect for all occasions, including the office.
If you want to try out any of these trends I’ve round up a ton at all different price points and several are on sale right now. Pink Lily Boutique has a lot of camo and leopard cuteness right now (some linked below) and I have a 15% discount code for you ladies – SHELBI15! Another place worth checking out is Express because they have a TON of camo and are currently having a sale!
If you’ve seen my Instagram account lately, you’ve 100% seen my obsession with hair scarves. They are a God send for dirty hair days or just sprucing up an otherwise simple outfit. My favorite places to buy quality hair scarves are Madewell, Free People and Anthropologie. If you are looking for cheaper options, I suggest trying your local Walmart or Target as I will periodically find them there as well!
A couple pieces of advice: firstly, make sure you look for ones that are silk (faux silk works too!) as these are going to work best. They are easier to manipulate, stay put better, and overall look nicer! Secondly, don’t pay too much of attention to the pattern since once it is rolled up, you will barely see it! Instead, look at the overall colors instead. See below for a round up of some of my favorites!
Summer time fruit madness is in full effect! Lemons and watermelons are my current fruit crushes but you will find almost every fruit under the sun plastered on swimsuits, shorts, tank tops and everything else this season. I can’t stop wearing this $10 watermelon tee(size up!) under all of my overalls and own both of these $15 pool floats (here and here).
Although the official Pantone color of the year is technically purple, yellow is in full force in just about every store you see. I didn’t even realize how much I was drawn to this color until a recent online order showed up and i’m not kidding when I say the entire box was yellow! I was determined I couldn’t pull off this particular color, but you’d be surprised what a little bit of self tanner does for a yellow outfit and frankly for the soul as well 😉 This is the self tanner I’ve been using and loving so far! I get the dark shade, apply it with a mitt, sleep with it on, and wash it off in the morning!
If you aren’t convinced that you can rock yellow quite yet, adding in a little color with your accessories is a good place to start. Especially if you are a neutral girl, these earrings or cute espadrilles (true to size) would instantly take your muted outfit to Spring time cutie! See below for more accessories and yellow crushes.
After getting several requests from you ladies on where to find straw bags under $50, I thought it was about time to share the good news. It is actually easier than you think to find an on trend bag on a budget. I have not tried any of these bags out myself yet but all of the ones that I found have amazing reviews (make sure you read them too!). This trend was around last year and I honestly don’t see it going anywhere anytime soon. So if you’ve had your eye on one but don’t want to fork out an arm and leg, here are some for all budgets!
