Trending Tuesday- Flash-Lens Sunglasses

Hey Cats!

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone’s week is off to a great start- I know mine is! There are quite a few new opportunities for the blog, and I’m excited to share them all with you. But we’ll both have to be patient!

I’m sure you’ve all seen Ray Ban Flash Lens sunglasses on nearly every blogger, and all around town. At first I wasn’t sure how I felt about them, but I’ve decided that I love the statement that the bright-colored lenses make. They’re great for summer, and one of my favorite trends right now.

I had planned on purchasing a pair of Ray Bans, but then I had to have a reality check. First of all, they’re expensive. I get that they’re high-quality, but I have a hard time spending a lot of money on something trendy. Also, I’m not the best with sunglasses. I tend to lose them in the lake, sit on them, or otherwise maim them to the point where they’re unwearable, so I typically don’t spend a lot on sunglasses. I decided to try and find a less expensive pair instead- and I did!

I found these little cuties at Charming Charlie for under $10, and I had to have them. They still have the aviator shape and the bright-colored, attention-catching lenses that I was looking for. I wear these every day with everything- to the lake, on my way to work, to the gym- you name it. This is a perfect example of single-girl style on a college-girl budget-I was able to try this trend and still have money left over!

Trends I’m Loving- Printed Pants

Hey Cats!

I tend to usually stick to solids- they’re classic, timeless, and they go with everything. However, small prints have been catching my eye lately, especially on pants. Here are a few of my favorites:

jcrew pants

 

First up are these Geo Print Drawstring Pant from JCrew. As if “drawstring” wasn’t enough of a selling point, I love the tiny geometric print on these pants. It’s interesting without being overbearing, which is perfect for people like me who have a dependency on solids. These casual pants would be cute with a solid black tee for daytime, or a navy blazer and wedges for a night out.

old-navy-pants

 

Next are these Pixie Pants from Old Navy. I see these every time I drop in (which is like, once a week) and think about how cute they are, so I should probably just buy them. I love the tiny flower-like print, and the white stripe. Also, since these are more structured, they’re office-appropriate, which is my new favorite thing. Pair them with a flowy white top and nude heels and you’re ready for work!

piperlime-pants

 

Last are these navy tribal print pants from Piperlime. I like the pattern, and again, they look super comfy. These would be great with a solid tee or a flowy tunic.

Trends I’m Loving-D’Orsay Flats

Hey Cats!

This week is a short one- whoop! It was nice to have an extra day to relax and get some chores done, even if it did rain all day.

I typically prefer sandals over close-toed shoes during the spring and summer, but a particular style of flats has caught my eye lately, and I’m considering adding a pair to my shoe family because they’re just so cute! With their pointed toe and two-piece style, D’Orsay flats are a fresh take on a classic, and I’m loving all the different options!

general flats kate spade

 

These kate spade General flats are perfect for the office, or just for everyday with a pair of dark skinnies. I love the classic combination of nude and black, and the bow adds the perfect feminine touch.

charles david flats

 

I love the pop of orange that these Charles by Charles David Bermuda flats bring to the table. It pairs nicely with the nude, and I also like the slight wedge- that way your feet aren’t killing you because of too flat soles! This would be great with black cigarette pants for the office, or a cute cuffed pair of boyfriend jeans for everyday.

modcloth flats


I love the whimsical color and print of these Dreaming of Destinations flats from Modcloth.  They’re a great, fun option, and would be cute paired with white skinny jeans and a chambray for an effortless everyday look.

How do you feel about D’Orsay flats? Let me know!

Trends I’m Loving- Agate Anything

Hey Cats!

I have been noticing agate popping up in jewelry and home decor a lot lately. You might be wondering what agate is, as was I. According to Wikipedia (credible source, I know) agate is a “microcrystalline variety of silica, formed by siliceous deposits in volcanoes”. Basically, it’s a very pretty rock found in volcanoes that, when sliced, has bands of beautiful colors. I think it’s a good thing I took Horticulture instead of Geology. Anyways, it’s a gorgeous natural material that brings a lot of interest and unique flair to accessories for both your ensembles and your living space. Here are a few of my favorite agate items:

agate bangle

This agate bangle from Ellie’s Sparkles is a great way to wear the trend. I love the white and gray agate, it reminds me of sea shells- perfect for summer! This would be a great piece to anchor your stacked wrist.

agate necklace

I also love this Sliced Hot Pink Agate necklace from Etsy. It’s a simple pendant necklace, but the pop of hot pink would instantly spruce up any neutral outfit.

agate coasters

I’m dying to have these Agate Coasters from Kate Spade Saturday for my apartment. How cute would these be on a black or gold coffee table? (Not that I have either one of those…ours is powder blue, but we’re talking about the ideal decor situation.) This is a great, small way to incorporate the agate trend into your home.

agate bookends

These agate bookends from West Elm would add the perfect touch of interesting to your bookshelf. I personally like to have some odds and ends on my bookshelf, I feel like it makes it decorative in addition to functional. I love the creamy blue and white colors of these bookends- it’s a more earthy-looking take on the trend.

Also, fun fact, I just read the book in the middle of the picture, The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down by Anne Fadiman for my Health Communication class. Because you wanted to know. It was actually quite emotional, and presented the unique challenges that doctors and people of different cultures face in the American health care system. If you ever have some time on your hands, you should read it- it really challenged my perspectives on some things! But I digress.

How would you like to incorporate the agate trend into your wardrobe or home? Let me know in the comments!

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.

tassel earrings

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?
