10 Trends I Will Be Wearing This Summer

There are always trends every year and I understand that my style may not be everyone's style but I wanted to keep you guys up to date on 10 trends that I will be buying this summer! All of these are from Neiman Marcus Last Call which is a great place to score extreme discounts! Always be checking their site for extra sale on sale - this is one of my favorite place to get high quality shoes and dress. I also LOVE ASOS for cheap finds So without further ado here is my wish list:

1) One Strap Sandals

Conformable, cute and thousands online right now! I picked some that had a little more flair, but there are tons like the white ones I picked that are great for running errands or getting you too and from the gym.

2) Polka Dots

Something about dots are so sweet. I was so on the star trend and in my opinion this is next!

3) Woven Bags

The perfect summer staple. Whether you are going to the beach or are completely landlocked they are a great way to add texture to your look and they honestly don't break the bank!

4) Updated Florals

Not you're grandma's florals! I love the ruffle floral combo - so dreamy

5) Pastel Colors

Perfect for summer. This one was actually harder to shop for because searing "pastel" didn't really come up with much, but from these pieces I think you get the vibe I am going for! I love the look of pastel with denim!

6) Check Prints

This was one of my favorite to pick pieces out for. I think Gingham can be overdone but there are so many ways to get into this print that can actually be minimalistic (or not!) perfect for a fun summer night out in my opinion.

7) One Piece Swimsuits

For those butt squeezing tiny bottoms (still have some sorry mom) but I love that one pieces are trendy again! There are so many options online and so many different versions to tailor them to your style. Not your average speedo...

8) 80's Mom Jeans (Sorry guys)

I know this is probably the most controversial on this list but mom's from the 80's please back me up. There is nothing more comfortable than a 80's style denim. Usually they are high waisted which is perfect to tuck a blouse into or wear crop top if you are brave!

9) Sneakers

I wear them everyday. With everything. Bury me in them please.

10) RED

As you can see I love red/orange tons lately. It was actually hard picking out items in the top 9 categories that were not red because I am just so drawn to them. I know red isn't for everyone but summer is the perfect time to play with statement colors!


That is all! Do you guys want to see some trends I will NOT be buying?


Half and Half

       I am going to be honest. I thought I was pretty clever with this post's title. You guys know one of my favorite looks for spring is the sporty look (I feel like I am slightly shoving this trend down your little throats). Today is no exception. I found this fun skirt from PinkYotto while in Boston and I decided to change the typical midi look up! Top half is casual and fun while the bottom half is girly and dressy. Half and Half! (yay for my wittiness today)

     On another note... I am feeling so accomplished lately. Life has been looking up. I have been loving blogging and it really did not sink in until today the impact on me. While talking to my sister she asked me "is it weird having 1000 people look pictures of you?" Well my first answer was yes. Fashion blogging is just a lot of pictures of yourself which is kind of creepy... if you guys saw my iphoto library you would think I was crazy. It is like a shrine of me (weird). BUT the point of this is that question hit me. 1,000 of you read my blog... um what? That is insane to me! I guess I just feel proud and really happy so thank you guys! Next week I celebrate 1 year of blogging with a week full of giveaways! So look forward to that

Reflective Army

Hello my fellow dreamers (can I start saying that? Dreamers? Get it?) Yesterday's New York look had an army flair. I love the army influence in fashion kinda makes me feel like a badass. Yesterday I also tried a new thing for me... reflective shades. My sister would vouch that if you asked me last month how I felt about these glasses I would mock throw up in disgust. I am ashamed to admit that blogs have a HUGE sway on my thoughts. For the last month these have been the "new thing". Does anyone else change their style after seeing it over and over on blogs? Or am I just easily won over. Hey it doesn't look bad. Go bloggers!

Also anyone who knows me knows I am "the basic white girl". So guys guess what! Thats no Starbucks cup in my hand. I am becoming a true New Yorker!
