I know it’s cool to be like “ew that’s so trendy,” but I am so NOT cool, so I think it’s fine for me to not be adverse to trends. In fact, I love trends. I don’t give a crap if I grow out of them in two minutes or hop on the train months after it’s left the station. Fashion is about expressing yourself, and I would like to express my love for short lived trends and pieces that are destined to never get past the fad phase.
I would even like to confess that I don’t like a lot of trends until I see a lot of people wearing them. I will never be that girl that says “I rocked mom-jeans before they were in.” No, I hated mom jeans until I saw like fifty girls wear them that pulled it off flawlessly then I bought an expensive pair at Urban Outfitters that would’ve cost me a quarter of a price at a thrift store.
Yeah, I’m so far from cool, huh?
Honestly, I’m just not a fad-fortune teller. I love to follow along with the trendsetters and fashion editors of the world and be amazed at their foresight, but unless that fashion vision magically appears, I’ll stick to my style: jumping on fads way too late and not caring.
All that being said, it should be no surprise that I’m into statement earrings and neck scarves. It’s a thing. It’s been a thing, and I’m into it and PROUD. When I had the chance to partner with Charming Charlie, I knew I would finally get the chance to purchase my first pairs of bauble earrings and tassel earrings. I’d seen them on so many blogger friends in the past (like this cool cat and this accessories kween) that I couldn’t wait to finally fit in! 😉

I also have been loving neck scarves, but never really had the proper sized one to look chic. I have a couple smaller bandanas and one longggg silk thing, but neither ever ended up leaving the house. This silky, blue scarf is the perfect size and prime flight attendant-esque length.
I think it’s important to mention that all three pieces are under $20 each. I know myself, come summer’s end I will start to wear these less and less, so the price point makes a huge difference. If that happens, I can store them away until the next time the trend comes around guilt-free. I purchased them for low enough a cost that I won’t feel bad.
What are your favorite trends right now? Let me know in the comments, so I can be cool!
