OOTD: Trendy Tuesday

 

Let’s Go Nationals!

Good morning and happy Tuesday beauties! As I’m sure you all know, last week started the MLB Playoffs, and this year much to many peoples’ surprise and even more peoples’ excitement, the Nationals made it! While I have to admit I have never been a die hard baseball fan, I do love going to the games and (as I’m sure you can imagine) especially the playoff games! So, we know the Nationals had a bit of a rough start last week, losing the first two of their five game series against the San Francisco Giants, but last night they finally pulled it together and won 4-1! Wahoo! I am really hoping and preying that they can just keep it going until this weekend so Hilary and I can go to yet another game!

But, now hat I am done rambling about what I am hoping to do this weekend… This week’s Trendy Tuesday is a chic and stylish outfit that is perfect for a fall baseball game! I t may not be the most fashionista approved ensemble, but I cannot stand when girls look like they’re going to a college football game in their sundresses and heels! This is a baseball game, ladies… this is not a fashion show… (and trust me, there are VERY few times in life I will ever say that!) So, without further ado, here is this week’s Trendy Tuesday… Nationals style!

Outfit Of The Day - Trendy Tuesday Washington Nationals Style

Tops: Nationals T-Shirt, $35; J.Crew Chambray, $78 $66 – On Sale Now!; Pants: Only, $50; Boots: Tory Burch, $495; Watch: Michael Kors, $225; Hat: MLB, $19.

Is that not the perfect game day outfit or what?! Well, I know that I am loving it, and (fingers crossed!) I will be wearing it to the game this weekend if the Nats can keep it together for two more games and continue on in the tournament! So, if you are going to be there, let me know! I’d love to see ya and your beautifully shining face! :) I hope y’all have an amazing Tuesday, and enjoy the weather! It is going to be gorgeous again today!

Trendy Tuesday: Black + White

 

Back to The Basics With a Chic Black + White Ensemble

Good morning and happy Tuesday everyone! I hope y’all had a fantastic Monday yesterday, and you’re ready for the better part of the week to start (I mean anything is better than Monday, right?).  Well, for the first time in what seems like forever (I really am sorry about that guys, it was a crazy summer with the pool and all of the stuff that went along with that!) we have a fantastic outfit of the day! I’m so glad this is the first one to get me back into the swing of things, because Trendy Tuesday is probably one of my favorite days for OOTD posts (other than Workout Wednesday of course, because I am super lazy lately and just love workout clothes because they’re so comfy…)!  So, today we have a super chic little ensemble of a black and white top from Tory Burch paired with a super trendy pair of leather shorts!

Outfit Of The Day: Trendy Tuesday - Chic Black And White Ensemble

Top: Tory Burch, $350; Shorts: J. Crew, $450;  Shoes: Saint Laurent (YSL), $795; Clutch: Valentino, $855; Bracelet: Mulberry, $215;  Earrings: Jessica Simpson, $18.

If you didn’t notice, this lovely ensemble was inspired by my friend Hilary’s outfit from Saturday night (see yesterday’s Motivational Monday for a picture!).  I absolutely loved her super cute outfit, and I am dying for a chic little pair of these amazing leather shorts (we know what’s on my wish list now…)! But, what do you think of this amazing outfit?! You could really wear it for so many occasions… Whether you’re having lunch with an old friend, going on a date with someone special, or hitting the town with the girls on Friday night, this outfit is perfect for them all!

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday today, and get ready for tomorrow’s Workout Wednesday… I hope you’re as excited as I am!

OOTD: Trendy Tuesday

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful day and you’re enjoying the beautiful weather we’ve had today (that is, if your day has been as nice as mine has!). This is my last week of undergrad (well, college in general actually because I am not going to grad school!), and I am starting to feel a little sad about leaving this wonderful place I have called home for the past four years.  With graduation approaching this Friday and Saturday, it is all getting to be really real lately.  I guess I better get ready though, because whether I want it to or not, it’s still coming! I have been on the job hunt for quite some time, but I have really been cracking down lately.  While I would love love love to work in fashion (as you all know!) I am starting to really open myself up to other options as well, just to get my foot in the door somewhere, network with all kinds of people (you never know who they know!), and get some real experience under my belt.  So, I’m hoping something comes up soon, but until then I will just have to keep trying and keeping a positive attitude – eventually I have to get a job, right?! But, if any of you know anyone who is hiring or have any suggestions/ideas as far as a job lead, I would love to hear from you! Please email me at kristen.booth06@gmail.com with any comments or suggestions!

But, now that I just rambled on forever (we’re not getting any younger here, Kristen!)… Let’s finally get to today’s outfit of the day! This week’s Trendy Tuesday is the perfect outfit for a fun spring or summer day.  I am loving these lace/crochet shorts – I really need to get a pair! And these colors are just so fun and summery… They make me so excited for pool days and barbecues! So, here is this week’s Trendy Tuesday outfit: Outfit Of The Day - Trendy Tuesday   Top: Alexander Terekhov, $749; Shorts: Alice + Olivia, $275; Shoes: Corso Cosmo, $69; Necklace: Stephan & Co., $24; Bracelets: kate spade new york, $48 (turquoise) Valentino, $545 (gold) Bauble Bar, $66 $34 (coral) On Sale Now!; Earrings: Stella & Dot, $24; Nail Polish: OPI, $8.99 – Bubble Bath (neutral) and Where Did Suzi’s Man Go? (Coral)

What do you guys think? Is that fun or what?! I don’t know about you, but all of these items (well except the nail polish… I already have those two and love them for the summertime!) are definitely going on my wishlist of summer items! Let me know what you think of this outfit and I would love any suggestions you may have for me! I hope y’all are having a great week so far!

Good morning and happy Tuesday, beauties! I hope you are all having a great week so far, and you’re not stuck in any more snow! I don’t know about you, but I am so over all of this snow… Not only is it a pain in the butt, but it is really starting to take a toll on my skin and hair (more on that later, though…)!

But, enough complaining! Today we have a phenomenal little ensemble for this week’s Trendy Tuesday.  This fun dress can be dressed up for a day of work or dressed down for a day of running around and being productive! Either way, this dress is absolutely fabulous and is sure to turn the heads of everyone you run into.

Outfit Of The Day - Trendy Tuesday

 

Dress: MICHAEL by Michael Kors, $175; Blazer: H&M, $41; Shoes: Valentino, $1,075; Bag: Prada, $2,330; Bracelet: C. Wonder, $45; Ring: David Yurman, $900; Earrings: Kenneth Cole, $9.

Is this outfit fabulous or what?! I know that I, personally, would kill for this outfit (or really just any part of it!), but unfortunately for me, none of these items are really in my budget at the moment. Sad day for Kristen… But, with graduation around the corner, it is only a matter of time before I have a job and can start working towards fun things that I’ll be able to splurge on!

I hope you ladies have a wonderful day and stay warm in the midst of the wintery tundra that has made its way back into our life. Stay strong though, it’s almost over! What do you think of this outfit? What is on your wishlist of designer, splurge items right now? Let me know in the comments below… I may want to add them to my list also!

OOTD: Trendy Tuesday

Good morning my lovely ladies! Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a wonderful Monday and your week started off on the right foot.  This week’s Trendy Tuesday is one of my personal favorites! I saw a girl on campus wearing a very similar outfit yesterday and I absolutely loved it! She was definitely my inspiration for this outfit.  The pants are just so fun and colorful, but they are also super fall-appropriate.  I am not a huge fan of red, so I never would have thought that these would be so cute, but I am definitely going to have to start looking for a pair of skinny jeans in this color!

Pants:  Current/Elliot ‘The Ankle Skinny Jeans’ – mytheresa.com, $346

Shoes: Nine West Counter Boots – ninewest.com, $169

Earrings:  Fossil Gold-Tone Stone Stud Earrings (Wine) – macys.com, $28

See what I mean… I never would have imagined that I would love this color so much! And in pants… it can sometimes be a rather bold move wearing colored skinny jeans (they tend to show everything… absolutely no mystery there ladies!), but I just love these so much I am going to have to invest! I hope you all have a wonderful day today and that you stay warm.. it’s getting cold out there! Until tomorrow…

Its A Never Ending Cycle… Keep Your “Old” Clothes!

Seasonal Trends: A Never-Ending, Rotating Cycle…

“What’s trending this season?” and “What are the hottest looks these days?”

Those seem to be the questions we ask ourselves every few months as the seasons change and we get a new set of trends and styles that are “in” at that point in time.  When we are in the moment, many of us think these styles are completely new ideas that no one has ever thought of making or wearing before.  I find myself doing it more often than I would like to admit… But, if you look into the past, you will find that a vast majority (if not all) of the trending styles we are wearing today, are really just recycled trends from previous decades.  For example, take a look at some of the largest trends that I found for this season:

High Waisted Shorts/Pants

Returning Trend - High Waisted Shorts

Topshop Embellished High Waist Shorts, Nordstrom, $90

High-waisted pants and shorts are a huge thing this season! Everywhere I turn I feel like I see at least one person wearing these super cute and stylish bottoms.  An extremely popular style this season, but was it the first time we’ve seen this one? Not at all!  High-waisted shorts were an enormous trend in the 1970’s first!

Big, Chunky, Statement Jewelry

Repeating Trends - Chunky, Bold Jewelry

ABS by Allen Schwartz Jewelry Glass Bib Necklace, Saks Fifth Avenue, $250

Statement jewelry… Everyone has it, talks about, plans their outfit around it, etc.  It seems to be consuming our lives, and I cannot say I hate it!  I absolutely love the return of the big, bold, colorful jewelry.  Paired with a bright colored top, we have a massive trend from the 1980’s that has made a comeback.

Leggings

Repeating Trend - Leggings

High Waist Aztec Print Leggings, Etsy, $25

One of my all time favorite trends to make it back into style… Leggings are another blast from the past that seems to be everywhere.  Returning after being ever popular in the 1990’s, there are so many ways to wear them. Leggings are the most popular with oversized sweaters, sweatshirts, and t-shirts, and mini dresses and skirts.

However, we wouldn’t stop at just plain old black leggings, would we?  Not a chance! This season, leggings are making an even bigger statement and are now being worn in various neon and pastel colors in addition to fun prints.

Chunky/Thick Heel

Repeating Trends - Thick/Chunky Heel

MICHAEL Michael Kors Heaven Suede Platform Pump, Neiman Marcus, $150

And now for the shoes… My weakness! This season’s hot chunky heel is far from a new style… popular amongst the ladies of disco in the 1970’s and then making their way back into style in the 1990’s, the idea of a thicker heel is far from original.

 Denim

Repeating Trend - Denim

Starry ‘Bout That Sleeveless Shirt, LuLu’s, $41

While were on a roll with the 90’s, why not bring up the increasingly popular trend of denim.  Denim is all over the place this season.  From pants, to dresses, shirts, overalls, and jackets (just to name a few!), everywhere you turn there is denim on denim on denim!

As you can see, this season’s styles are far from new or original. So, if the past is any indication, next season’s probably won’t be either.  With that being said, why throw away, donate, recycle, or whatever you may choose to do with your “old” clothes, when you could just put them away in a safe place and pull them back out when they return again in a few years?!

Trending: Statement Jewelry

 

Big, Bold Earrings and Necklaces are the Perfect Addition to Any Outfit.

As I’m sure you all can tell, I absolutely LOVE accessories! Especially jewelry (well and shoes, of course, but what girl doesn’t?!).  This season one of the huge trends is big, bold statement jewelry… it’s like a dream come true! So, I figured what better than to highlight some of my personal favorite piece… the best part? They’re all under $100!
