I know, it's not Saturday yet, but I will not have access to a computer tomorrow and I couldn't miss it!
A lot of girls my age have been wearing high top sneakers that are really big and kind of clunky I guess. I immediatly fell in love with them because I always thought that girls sneakeers never realyy did justice. They always seem to give of the vibe of a sneaker-that's-not-really-a-sneaker-but-wants-to-be. Some girls have even gone to wearing men's sneakers so that they wouldn't have the same pair as another person. I like this a llittle more becuase it's so unique and different.
The pair I ordered wednesday are from zumiez.com. The brand is Osiris and they weren't my top choice, but they were a little more wearable than my others.
What do you think of big chunky sneakers? Are they a hit or miss? I think they hit the bullseye, but that's just one opinion out of a billion.
I have been noticing that the winter clothing this year is unusual. While normally, designers stick with blacks, leathers, sweaters so thick no one REALLY needs to wear them unless they live in Antarctica, and the standard high heeled boots, they have completely switched this season. I have been seeing 'winter' florals and pastels as well as flats and soft barely there makeup.
The 'winter' floral uses smaller flowers and they are often in darker colors. If the flowers are not small they are overly large and scattered over the clothing piece. This is probably my least favorite of the new trends because I always see flowers in spring and summer. They just don't belong in winter clothing, but I think they look good when paired with chunky leather boots and a matching jacket.
I've also seen crop tops still circulating the market. I LOVE crop tops. I think they are so cute and simple to throw on over top of a Cami and walk out the door looking put together. I personally am so happy this trend is still in style. They are often knitted and use Nordic prints. Some on the other hand are tribal prints in bright neon colors. I think these can also look amazing if you wear it right and not with a ton of other bright colors.
Another clothing trend that I have seen becoming really in is brightly colored jeans. I own a pair myself and while i don't wear them that often I do get a lot of compliments. The best variety of colors are being sold at Delias, but I have seen red ones being sold in American Eagle.
I am not sure how I feel about this trend yet, I kind of miss being able to go a little crazy with my makeup and not having to worry about matching prints and colors. In my opinion if worn right this trend can be very winter appropriate, but I think other wise it can be a little to springy.
I just wanted to wish you all a happy Thanksgiving! I love the outfit I am going to be wearing over to dinner. I wish I could insert a picture, but then again I do not have a camera on the computer I am using. Sigh... it bothers me too! I am going to wear a vintage orange high wasted skirt with straps. It sounds weirder than it looks! With a Long sleeve cream shirt underneath. The shirt has a tribal print in a thinner material. I wish I could curl my hair, but I forgot my curling iron!
So what are you wearing for Thanksgiving? And if you don't celebrate, what is your favorite dressy/ casual fall outfit?
With much love,
I apologize yet again for not blogging on a regular basis or should I say not at all. It's very difficult for me because I do not have a computer of my own and my families computer breaks down often. It is huge pain just to try to get it started. Right now I'm visiting family so I thankfully have been able to use their computer for today and possibly tomorrow or Friday. I will try to start up again and I do apologize. Maybe I will finally get my own computer by Christmas. Cross the Fingers
