Trends I’m Loving- Tassel Earrings

Hey Cats!

As you all know, accessories are my favorite part of any outfit, and I typically follow the rule “the bigger the better”. Not in a gaudy, excessive way, but more of a single statement piece kind of way. I love big earrings, and my latest favorites are tassel earrings. I’ve spotted them on a few of my favorite bloggers, specifically Kate from A Lone Star State of Southern and Caitlin from Southern Curls & Pearls.

Now, these are definitely a bold statement, and I’d probably have to work up some courage to wear them- but I’m definitely willing to give it a shot! They can be dressed up or down, and would function well as the single, star accessory of an ensemble. I’m picturing the gold pair with my black, flowy tank and high-waisted chevron shorts- perfect!

I’ve got my eye on these black beauties from Lisi Lerch– they’re also available in orange, turquoise, white, silver, and gold, but I think that the black pair would work best with my personal wardrobe.

Another option is this lovely lime pair from Kate Spade Saturday. They are also available in black, white, and coral.

I will definitely be adding a pair of tassel earrings to my jewelry collection this summer- maybe in a few colors! What jewelry trends are you loving this season?

Today, I’m linking up with Zelle from A Southern Style, Kristina from Medicine & Manicures, Katie from Champagne & Suitcases, and Amanda from As the Wine Cork Turns for #TrendingTuesday- head over and see what’s trendy this Tuesday!

Trends Two Ways- The Flannel Button-Down

Hey Cats!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas with their friends and family- I know I did! Also, I didn’t really intend to take a week-long blogging break- it just kind of happened! But I’m back this week, and I’ve got a lot planned!

Today, I would like to share one of my favorite trends from fall & winter, the flannel button-down. Now, this trend is something I wouldn’t usually wear- in fact, it’s very “hipster”, and if there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that the easiest way to insult me is to say I’m dressed like a hipster. However, this trend started sweeping College Station, so I decided to give it a try. It has since made its way to the realm of actual fashion, and I couldn’t be more pleased.

I will say that the “college girl version” of this trend is quite different from the “fashion blogger version”, but I love them both. Let’s start with

“The College Girl Look”

This look is definitely more casual and comfortable. As is the trend with t-shirts these days, the bigger the better (to an extent). Both of my flannels are from the men’s section- partly because of sizing, partly because of colors and availability. I like to wear mine with leggings, so I have to make sure there is sufficient coverage. I will typically wear my flannels with leggings or skinny jeans and either riding boots or Uggs, depending on the temperature and whether or not I care about what I look like. (Yes, I still wear Uggs, no I don’t really care what you think about it) Occasionally, I will wear a t-shirt underneath and leave the flannel unbuttoned, or add a chunky infinity scarf.

I wore this outfit shopping over Thanksgiving break, and it’s a classic example of the casual flannel look. My dad thinks it’s awesome that flannels are “cool”, so he bought my sister and I one for Christmas, and I’m slightly embarrassed to admit I’ve worn it three times since then- it’s December 30th. If you’re looking to wear a flannel this way, check out the men’s department at JCPenney. They’re currently on sale for $12.99!

“The Fashion Blogger Look”

This look is a bit more dressy than the “College Girl” style. In my mind, I’m picturing a fitted flannel paired with a party skirt and tights for a festive holiday look. Many of my favorite bloggers have taken this trend to the next level. Check out Grace from A Southern Drawl, Amber from King and Kind, and Emily from The Sweetest Thing. My flannel I got for Christmas is a bit more fitted, so I’m looking forward to experimenting for a more polished approach!

What do you think about the flannel trend? Let me know!
