With this chilly weather amidst us, having a light jacket is handy. But because it's spring, it's important that the jacket is still colorful and bright! That's where this Embroidered Bomber Jacket, by Roxi's Fine Cuts, comes into play. This bold jacket is incredibly unique and such a eye catching piece.. probably because of the bright hue and stripped sleeves combo am I right? The design is genius and right on track with the maximalism trend that fashionista's everywhere are raving about. Take for example Man Repeller's post about maximalism -- it's fun to spice up a simple outfit with fun pieces like this Embroidered Bomber Jacket. So this season, try to embrace this maximalism trend and have fun styling those statement spring pieces!
In Thursday's post, I was excited to announce the start of a new Best Trends For Life blog series called "Worn Three Ways." The idea came to me while styling these Elora Swing Shorts, by Tobi, which paired well with just about every top I tried it on with. Because I could not choose which top to go with, I decided to feature these shorts in three very different looks - sporty, sweet, and sexy! Today's ootd is the third and final ensemble, or the "sexy" look! I simply swapped out the ruffle top from yesterday's post for this beautiful off the shoulder blouse, by The Haute Latte. I also added this trendy wrap choker, which is sold out but I'm linking a similar one here. So, you've seen these shorts styled in three different looks - sporty, sweet, and sexy. Clearly, these shorts are a summer wardrobe staple and well worth the money!
Now I want to hear from you guys! Comment below or on one of my Instagram photos to let me know which look was your favorite!!
Happy Friday Everyone!! In yesterday's post I was excited to announce the start of a new Best Trends For Life blog series called "Worn Three Ways." The idea came to me while styling these Elora Swing Shorts, by Tobi, which paired well with just about every top I tried it on with. Because I could not decide which top to go with, I'll be featuring these shorts in three very different looks - sporty, sweet, and sexy! In yesterday's post, the shorts were paired with a sweatshirt and sneakers giving way to the "sporty" look. Today, I'm showing off the "sweet" look which I've created by pairing the shorts with this adorable Lace Up Ruffle Top, by Romwe, and these flattering mules (which are sold out but here's a link to identical ones). By simply changing the sweatshirt to a ruffled beauty and the sneakers to a heeled sandal, the whole look has changed from sporty to sweet!
And as promised, I'll be talking more about what makes these shorts so comfortable. To start, the waist band does not have a zipper or a button, it's simply has an elastic band (but only in the back to preserve the aesthetics of the front). I prefer an elastic waist when purchasing pants online because it provides wiggle room when it comes to deciding on a size. (BTW, I went with a size S and it's a perfect fit). Another feature that makes them so comfy is the wide leg, or "swing" design. Not only is the flare trendy, it also lets your legs breath, and come the hot summer months, that is a huge benefit in my opinion! Seriously, you cannot go wrong with these bad boys. Not convinced yet? Stay tuned for tomorrow's post where I'll be featuring the third and last look!
Hiya Guys!! I'm excited to announce that I'm starting a new series called "Worn Three Ways." The idea came to me while I was styling these Elora Swing Shorts, by Tobi. Because of their versatility, the shorts looked good with just about every top I tried on. I had a hard time deciding which look to go with. And thus, Worn Three Ways, or WTW, was born! So for my first ever WTW, I'll be featuring these shorts in three very different looks - sporty, sweet, and sexy! If you haven't already guessed, today's ootd is the "sporty" look. I've paired the shorts with this Black Snake Embroidery Sweatshirt, by Shein, and my Reebok Furylite sneakers! Aside from being versatile, these shorts are also insanely comfortable. Tomorrow, I'll be featuring the "sweet" look and will be talking more about what makes these shorts so comfy, so stay tuned!
I'm tying up some cute spring pieces today -- this button down shirt and this patterned neck tie! This blouse is actually a "shirt-dress." It's called the Amari Striped Shirt Dress, by Tobi.com, and it's on sale for $29 right now! (Actually a bunch of trendy items are on sale at Tobi.com so be sure to check it out). This piece is so versatile because it can worn as a shirt or a dress, but my favorite way to style it is knotted up to a crop top length. I'm absolutely in love with this trend of tying up long tops-- it's casual but still sophisticated. I've also been obsessed with neck ties lately. I saw this one on sale for $5 at Urban Outfitters a few months ago and wish I had picked up a few more in different colors. I'm linking up a similar one here and will be sure to let you guys know if I see any good ones on sale soon!
