This was my outfit from Wednesday. I tried to pick out some of my favorite trends and throw all of them into one outfit to see what happens. The end result:
Trend 1. A chambray shirt. Mine from Madewell is quickly becoming a wardrobe staple for so many, both on the runways and the streets. It's easy, it goes with everything, and it's so comforable. If you don't already own one I suggest you buy one immediately from your closest Madewell because I, along with many others, have determined that that store has the best ones for the cheapest prices. Here is some great chambray inspiration:
Trend 2. Floral jeans. Printed jeans in general are another big trend of the moment. There are some great options available at Shopbop and Net-a-Porter. I have 2 other pants of the printed variety-polka dot and white floral-and I have to say they are way more fun than regular pants, more current, and cooler than wearing the prints on a top, scarf, etc.
Trend 3. The infamous wedge sneaker à la Isabel Marant:
These sneakers started a sneaker revolution in which all sneakers are no longer created equal; those inserted with a hidden wedge have the power to add height, produce slimming qualities, and promote comfort like no shoe before it has done. My sneaker is Ash because I would be kidding myself if I thought I could afford the Marant version (I'm pretty sure it's sold out worldwide and there is a waiting list anyway).
Trend 4. The white t-shirt. It's making a comeback I tell ya. I'm not really sure it ever left but I have been seeing it more prominantly as of late and it is being reintroduced in new ways. Mine hails from, you guessed it, Madewell! I like that it's not stark white otherwise it would match my albino skin.
My jewelry isn't really a trend, more so a personal attempt to have more skin covered in gold than not. I feel I have been somewhat successful in that mission. Bangles: Anthropologie. Bow: Mr. Dannijo. Skull bracelet: Urban Outfitters. Blue detail bracelet: Madewell. Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs. Necklace pretending to be a bracelet: vintage. Ring: Forever 21. I'm also wearing 3 necklaces, 2 other bracelets, 2 other rings, and 4 earrings but they aren't really relavent here so you will most likely see them at a later date. I might have a jewelry problem...
I encourage all of you to go out an incorporate trends into your current everyday staples. They allow you to have fun with fashion and if you don't like one, it changes 6 months later anyway!

Someone pointed out to me that I always look down in pictures, and I think I choose those shots because it is more flattering. I just look so damn awkward when I look at the camera-any tips on fixing this?!
