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!

I’ve posted about these faux leather leggings on my Insta a few times, but they’re so good, I felt like they deserved an entire blog post!

OK, in all honestly, I had seen these leggings all over the internet for months before I bought them. I swear every blogger in the world was wearing them, but I just wasn’t convinced that they were better than other “liquid” leggings out there. I loved the look of them, but the price tag was definitely throwing me off. These are $98.00, and I just couldn’t justify spending that on a pair of “basic” leggings… or so I thought.

Fast forward to the holidays, and I got a gift card to Bloomingdale’s. My first thought was that I could finally get my hands on these babies, guilt free! YAS! Once I tried them on, I totally understand what the hype was all about. They’re not basic at ALL people. AT ALL. They’re so good and the quality is amazing. Not to mention, they can be washed and lined dried- super easy and I don’t have to stress about ruining them. Another bonus!

Guys, I’ve fallen in love with high waisted mom jeans and I just don’t know how to go back to anything else…. Well, that’s not entirely true. I’m still a die hard skinny jeans fan, because, duh. But, I really have transitioned into ALL high-waisted jeans. I literally cannot wear low waist anymore. Anyone else? How did we get by for so long? I put a pair of my old jeans on the other day and literally just felt like my butt crack was hanging out… eeek. NO. I just can’t. High-waisted jeans for life.

Who’s with me?? Everyone? Great.

I thought it’d be fun to share some really cute pairs of mom jeans that I know you’ll love as much as I do. My favorite pair is from Abercrombie, and I literally don’t stop wearing them. They make the booty look…. pretty great. Trust me!

And before we move on to the fun stuff, I feel like I should break down the difference between mom jeans/girlfriends jeans and boyfriend jeans. It’s pretty simple, honestly- a mom jean is just a little more fitted and feminine than a boyfriend jean. Sometimes a boyfriend jean can be too baggy, and a girlfriend or mom jean fits tighter through the hips and has a straight leg. And in my opinion, they’re much more flattering in a cropped length, instead of full.

So that’s the deal.

Guys, I was about to be the best blogger and actually have this posted in time for you to BUY MY DAMN SHORTS BEFORE THEY SOLD OUT. But I failed you. Yet again….. I’m SOWWY. Ugh. I swear when I started writing this post, they were still available online in all sizes. I s-w-e-a-r. But then I checked, and bam, they’re gone. I bet everyone scooped them up for Coachella. FACK.

However, to try and make it up to you, I did lots and lots of digging to try and find you an alternative option. And I think I found some goodies. OR, maybe this will give you some inspo anyways, or maybe you have similar paperbag waist shorts in your closet and you’re thinking “WTF do I wear with these?”. I got you, boo!

I’m going to Stagecoach this year for the first time ever and I’m SO excited! I’m going with five girlfriends and it’s going to be the best. Fun fact- Country music is my favorite. There is something about it that just makes my soul happy. I can’t wait to be singing along to my favorite songs, drinking endless amounts of beer (yas!) and making memories with my babes!

Coachella is already underway, and although it’s not really something I want to ever go to, I like seeing everyones outfits. I get so much inspiration for the rest of the year! I feel like festival season is the new fashion week. I mean to be honest, I get more REAL LIFE outfit inspiration and trend direction from Coachella and Stagecoach then I do from high end designer or couture fashion. Anyone else? I’m more likely to wear denim shorts with fishnet tights this year than I am to wear a crazy over the top gown and a bird on my head or some shit. Right? I mean, you might be able to see that at Coachella too. Ha!
