Raise your hand if you were obsessed with Tie Dye when you were younger? I mean, if you grew up in the 80’s or 90’s, you definitely were. And if you weren’t, you’re too young to be here… (just kidding…!). I remember rocking tie dye shirts constantly as a kid, don’t you? I’ll have to see if I can dig up some old school photos and throw them up on Instagram for fun- might have to call Mom for those!

There have been a lot of 90’s trends that have come back recently that I’m 100% NOT on board with, but I think the tie dye trend can stay. Biker shorts on the other hand, absolutely not. Man, I wish those would go away… But that could be an entirely different blog post.

Tie dye is literally everywhere right now- from accessories to dresses to workout gear and on and on. Plus, any color combo you can think of, you can have it. I’m all about the BRIGHTS, but there are some cute black and white styles that are a little easier to wear.

A lace bodysuit (or mesh) is an item that I think every girl should have in her closet. I think it’s up there with a basic black blazer, your go-to interview dress or outfit, your favorite pair of jeans that make you feel amazing and a nice pair of nude heels. I’m sure there are more, but those are the ones I can think of right now.

The right lace bodysuit can make you feel sexy, powerful and confident. It’s perfect for a night out (or a night in…) with a really great skirt and heels, or a pair of liquid leggings. You can easily make a lace bodysuit GLAM, is my point. But how can you style a sexy bodysuit for day time? It’s so EASY!

I’ve wanted to share this post for a while now- my favorite moisturizers that REALLY work! Guys, these are the holy grail. I’ve always had combination skin, which is honestly the most annoying skin type to have if I’m being honest. Why? Because you have to treat the acne, the oily areas and the dry areas all at one time. And if you’re not careful, treating the acne can dry out the areas you want to be moisturized… Ugh. You get my point, yeah?

Well, I’ve been testing products for years and these five are by far the best ones I’ve found thus far! If you have combo skin like I do, or you’re just looking for a great hydrating product, you should give these a shot. And thank me later…

Are you ready for this blog post? I’ve been so excited to share this with you!! Guys, this is literally my biggest collaboration TO DATE. When PrettyLittleThing.com reached out to sponsor me, and collaborate on a Summer Haul clothing post, I think I screamed out loud. They have the CUTEST clothes, at super affordable prices, which you know I’m all about. I think fashion should be fun, and you shouldn’t have to break the bank. I’m sure we can all agree on that!

OK, so every piece that they sent to me is literally P-E-R-F-E-C-T for Summer. When the weather is hot, I want to wear a little as possible. Again, I think we can all agree. Tiny sun dresses, crop tops, white tees- give me ALL of it! My friend Jenny and I took a trip to Palm Springs recently, and it was the best location to take these 8 pieces from PrettyLittleThing. Nothing screams SUMMER to me more than being in Palm Springs, that’s for sure!

I’m also really in love with COLOR this year. I’ve always been someone who wears black, white and the occasional pop of pink (we’ve all got our comfort colors, right?). But as you’ll see with these pieces, I’m stepping out a bit. I’m really loving the oranges, reds, pinks and mustards happening here.

I don’t think I’m alone in this, but Yellow and Orange have always been colors I thought were tough to wear because I have super pale skin, but I was totally wrong. You just have to find the right shade of certain colors- but I’m definitely going to be adding more pops into my wardrobe for sure!

Let’s break down these looks, shall we?

My newest obsession? LEOPARD. Literally, anything leopard. Mainly, this new leopard skirt that I can’t stop wearing. So let’s talk about it, K?

I’m one of those people that sees the trends coming (really because of my job, not that I’m super fashionable or trendy, per say…) but often times, it takes me a long time to jump on board. I don’t know if it’s just me being stubborn, or cynical, or just an asshole, but whenever everyone is jumping on a trend, I like it less and less.

The Bachelor? I hate it and won’t watch it. 50 Shade of Grey? Never seen it, or read it. The Kardashians? Gross. Pearl hair clips? Took me like six months to finally cave and buy a pack. You get my point…

I’ve seen girls wearing leopard everything for such a long time, but I never really bought anything for myself. I have a leopard belt that I love to wear as a pop with jeans a black bodysuit, but that’s it. I don’t know, I always thought leopard was too mature for me or something.

BUT seeing cute outfit after cute outfit finally pushed me over the edge and I’m fully on board with pretty much every piece of clothing I see that’s leopard. Actually, lets include accessories too. While I thought it was mature before, I’ve now changed my tune and it really is a neutral. Right? I hope you agree!

I live in sweatshirts, all year round. And more often than not, they’re not pretty or fashionable (if I’m being honest, my Iowa State University hoodie is my favorite one, and it’s not flattering, and it has a hole in the sleeve. Cute…).

I found this statement style with chain details on the sleeves at H&M a year or two ago and it’s still one of the best in my closet. It lets me be comfortable, without looking like a total slob kabob. Which is basically what all women want, right? It’s what I want at least. I love that this can be worn with skinny jeans and booties, or dressed down with shorts and converse!

One thing I will say about these sleeves… they get in the way of everything. Eating, typing, brushing my teeth, and on and on. They’re worth it, but they’ve definitely made certain scenarios much more tricky. Ha!

So, since I wear this style all the time, I thought it would be fun to share some fun STATEMENT sweatshirts that are perfect for taking a look from the office to date night. Or just allowing you to be comfy, and stylish at the same time. YAS!
