Trends I’m Loving- Turban Headbands

Hey Cats!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was pretty uneventful, but that’s what I wanted! I’ve had busy weekends every week since I got back from Christmas break, so it was nice to hang out and relax a little.

Today I’m going to share with you a trend I’ve had my eye on for a while, but haven’t quite been brave enough to try! I once saw Kourtney Kardashian wearing a turban and thought it was the best thing ever, but was certain I could never pull it off. Then, turban headbands started popping up everywhere- a less bold version of the trend. While I still haven’t mustered up the courage to try it myself, I love this look! It’s different, but as easy as throwing on a headband!

I’ve seen these at many boutiques here in College Station, but my favorite come from an Etsy shop I stumbled across a while back. Rayna Jaye has such a great variety of colors and patterns. I honestly can’t decide which is my favorite! I also love the width- I’m really picky about headbands, I can’t have them too fat or too skinny, and these are the perfect width, especially for a turban-style headband.

Here are a few of my favorites! Also, doesn’t Rayna have the best hair you’ve ever seen? I’m jeal.

Emerald and Gray Color Block - Turban Style Headband

I love this Emerald and Gray Color Block option! The two colors give it a fun twist, but it’s not too busy.

Rose Garden - Turban Style Headband

Next is this Rose Garden number. I love the delicate, feminine print of this one- it would be precious paired with a chambray, dark denim, and a pair of nude flats.

I also love this Blush Glitz turban. It’s a little bit of sparkle, but it’s still pretty neutral, so you could wear it with a lot!

Have you tried the turban headband trend? Let me know, and then be sure to check out Rayna Jaye on Etsy!

That’s all for meow!

Single Girl Closet on a College Girl Budget-Baroque Sunglasses

Hey Cats!

A while back I spotted Kourtney Kardashian wearing these fabulous Prada sunglasses and I immediately fell in love with them! (and also her turban-where can I find one of those?)

I did a little research, and discovered they were $290- way out of my college girl budget. Disappointed, I decided they weren’t meant to be and settled for a Target pair that had the big, round frames, but not the baroque detailing (which was my favorite part). However, one afternoon while catching up on my Bloglovin’ feed, I came across Amber from FACE IT Catalog wearing what I thought were the Prada sunnies I had been coveting. (Also, how fab is she? Her outfit posts are truly the best, and I have serious closet envy. This is probably a good time to also mention that this photo is used with permission from Amber!)

However, I scrolled down to view the outfit details, and discovered that she purchased her eyewear from Framework. I was overjoyed, especially when I reached the site and they were on sale for $3.94. Yes, less than $5. THEY WERE SO MEANT TO BE. I immediately typed in my credit card number and made them mine, and with shipping, the total was under $7. They were waiting for me when I arrived home from vacation Thursday night, which was just the best, and I am very pleased with them!

They are very chic, and add just the right amount of whimsy to your outfit. Also, I just feel absolutely fab when I wear them. Steals like this are the perfect way to build your Single Girl Closet on your College Girl Budget!

Summer Style Watch

Hey Cats!

First of all, how do you like the new blog? It’s very chic and sleek, which is what I was wanting for the blog, so I love it!

Also, since I’m home for the summer, I have plenty of time to craft, cook, and blog! I have so many crafts I plan on making for my new house next year, and I’m excited to share them with you. If I end up actually doing them.

But for now, I’m going to share my picks for my favorite fashion trends this summer! Summer has always been my favorite season: swimming, sunshine, no school, and the freedom to dress however you want. Now that I’m in college, I can wear whatever I want all the time, but before I couldn’t wait to be free from school dress code and wear shorts and tank tops all the time! I’ve noticed that my style becomes more relaxed and bohemian during the summer. Normally, I steer clear of anything that could be deemed “bohemian” due to my mostly preppy and classic wardrobe, but there’s something about the natural, messy style that I can’t stay away from while frolicking in the sun from May-August. It’s also fun to mix more relaxed pieces with structured pieces to create a unique look. But more on that later!

The first thing I’m loving this summer is mix-and-match swimsuits. I am fully aware that this trend has been around for a while, but I have just now hopped on the train! I decided to go for solid colors, that way I can wear them together and mix them with the patterned pieces I already have. The possibilities are endless! I bought these two at JCPenney’s the other day- each piece was just $5! Also, JCP has turned into a new favorite store- everything is so cute now, and very affordable!

Next on my list is the maxi dress. I love maxi dresses- they can be dressed up or down, and are perfect for when you don’t feel like wearing anything too constricting. I feel like you can put on a maxi dress and say, “Well I really don’t care what I’m wearing but I’m still looking fabulous.” I’ve had my two favorites forever, but they’re both so versatile! I have a solid black dress that I like to wear with colorful sandals, statement earrings, and an armful of gold bangles. The printed dress I wear with wedges and my cropped denim jacket.

I’m also on the hunt for a maxi skirt that I can pair with tanks and my denim jacket for a different look! I tried wearing the printed dress as a skirt to church a couple of weeks ago. It was really cute, but it was quite the struggle to walk and do other regular, necessary activities, so I won’t be doing that again. Also, my denim jacket that I mentioned has become a new favorite in my wardrobe. Living in East Texas/College Station, sometimes it’s okay to be a little bit country. I like to pair this with sundresses and boots when I go dancing, or over maxi dresses for church, or with other outfits when it might get a little chilly at night! I like mine because it’s cropped, so it’s not too bulky, and it has a cute design on the back that adds a little interest!

Another thing I’m loving this summer is eyelet everything. Shorts, dresses, tops, you name it! I love the feminine look, and it’s the perfect summer fabric! My favorite is white, just because it’s crisp and classic, but it’s good to have colorful options, too! I love this eyelet tie-front tank from Dillard’s. It would pair well with colorful shorts, or a pair of dark wash cropped jeans and wedges!

Every summer, I have to get a new pair of sunglasses. It seems there’s always a new shape that’s in, and I like to try them out! Also, I tend to lose or break sunglasses more than the average person. This year, I’m loving oversized circle frames. Ever since I spotted Kourtney Kardashian wearing these fab Prada frames on Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, I have been dying for them. Unfortunately, Prada is not within my college girl budget, so I’ll have to settle for the Target brand that’s not as fancy, but still the look I’m going for!

There are so many more trends I’m wanting to try for summer, but there isn’t enough time, and this post would be obnoxiously long! What are your favorite summer styles? I would love to hear from you!

Coming soon: crafts for all of those t-shirts you don’t wear anymore! Gather them up and get ready to give them a new job besides taking up space in your closet! Until next time!
