Style Trends I'm Really Digging

Trends come & go, but style is forever.  After all, style trends are only as cool as you are. Wear what you like. Rock what makes you feel like the badass you are. Out of all the trends out there let's go over a few of my current favorites, shall we?

I am all about embroidery. It's Nana. I love wearing her black cardigan with red embroidered flower details. Très chic. This pair of black shorts with floral embroidery is a modern take on my Nana's cardigan.

T-Shirt Dress

I've been rocking my grey t-shirt dress from Cotton On for a couple years now. I wore mine here, here, here, here, & here. Clearly, I wear it a lot. I'm due for a new one any day now. The grey Tina t-shirt dress (also from Cotton On) might be the best alternative.


I'm totally into hats, wide-brimmed hats, dad hats, you name it. I have a whole hat wall. Ooopsie. For sun protection & general awesomeness, you know? Catch me wearing my alien hat here. It mixes embroidery with hats which is a double style trend. Opt for a pink dad hat with rose embroidery or a blue denim-looking hat with a sweet pineapple.

Velvet Shoes

I wore my black velvet boots until they went extinct. Catch me sporting them here, here, & 3x here. I bought some sexy grey velvet boots a few months ago. They look gorgeous. But these blush pink Sam Edelman booties look pretty fab.

Pins & Patches

I bought a sweet jacket with patches. I love the versatility of the color & the quirkiness of the patches. You can personalize any garment! Jazz up an old pair of jeans or patch your purse. The options are limitless. I added pins & patches to an oversized denim-esque cardigan. Start off with a pack of assorted patches. I also add the NASA patch my sister gave me; she worked there for two summers, which is pretty cool.

Rimless Sunglasses

I couldn't get into the rimless sunglasses trend until recently. They're funky. They're bold. They're so me! They make a statement, but you can tone them up or down.

Which is your favourite trend? What are you into? Leave a comment below! :]

  8. Oh I love the drive-ins! It's such a simple thing but for some reason I love the whole experience, maybe because it reminds me of 'Grease'?

  9. Cute stuff! I feel like a lot of 90's style is coming back. It's so quirky and fun! I've missed patches!

  10. So many cute things! Also those boots... All the heart eyes.

  11. I love everything from TopShop. The embroidery is great and the men's shirts fit my husband great.

  12. These trends are so amazing, probably because it reminds me that the 90s are back! I see it most in the embroidery and patches. I'm getting major flashbacks to 90s fashion :)

  13. There is nothing better than a cute tee shirt dress!

  14. I love the tshirt dress, especially paired with some cute tennies for a comfy look!
