WTT One Pieces! 

Hey everyone! It’s time for another What The Trend! Where I share thoughts and ideas on the latest trending things you all love!

Today, I’m talking the dreaded topic of bathing suits. I know we all struggle to find that perfect fitting piece that will give us the confidence to remove our beachy cover-ups to the world, and sometimes a bikini just is NOT going to happen.  With that in mind, I am so exited how the timeless one-piece bathing suit has come swinging back into style! Whether your a monokini fan, or a classic bombshell there is no shame strutting your one piece on that beach!
I have searched far & wide for one that I was willing to pay a reasonable price point and that would meet my dreams of perfect detailin & I have finally found it!!

This black/ strappy item was on sale so I just couldn’t say no! It is by Blue Life Swimwear which is carried a bunch of different places, so get out there (or google) to your hearts desire! There’s tons of swimwear sales going on since we are finally approaching fall, but there’s still so much time for beachy & pool fun!

I think these styles are here to stay! So grab your favorite piece and hit the beach!

Let me know what you all think about these suits!

A Whimsical way to Upgrade Your decor 

Hey everyone! So naturally in the summer time, we try to get outside and soak up all that good feeling sunshine as much as we can! One spot I absolutely love to relax in is an outdoor porch or patio, decorated with the perfect whimsical decor to fit your summer time vibes! 

Although, sometimes to find the perfect whimsy items you may just have to DIY!! That’s right, one of my favorite things to do! So for a few items I’ve decided to give a makeover, I thought what easier way than to use basic acrylic paint. It dries like its a plastic and also fast, so it’s a super simple way to jazz up any old dingy knick knacks you might need to. 

Paint can be used on so many items, even some you may think are trash. Like maybe all those used up empty wine bottles from last weekends summer soiree.  Why not turn them into something that gives a colorful splash to your atmosphere! 

Take a look at a few things I decided to make over, maybe they will inspire you to see some things in a new light. I used some old wine bottles, and a rusted up chandelier to brighten up a new summer time table setting. 

The steps are simple:

1. Find something that could use a revamp in style 

2. Gather paints of any colors you want!

3. Get painting & go wild! The more colors, the more whimsical your environment can be! 

4. Let dry & love! 

I hope you like this little tip so if you’re going to take anything away from this post: don’t underestimate the power of paint!

WTT…Shoulder coats?

Okay, so some of you may agree with me, some of you may not.  Here is where we draw the line of two kinds of ladies in the world:

Those in favor of the wear-your-coat-on-your-shoulders-because-you-saw-Kim K-do-it-so clearly-you-have-to

AND

All those average normal ladies who can freaking appreciate the meaning of wearing-your-coat-like-a-human-should-because-its-*FFING-cold sometimes.

 

I know,I know, I know; we are going into the summer season, and don’t worry I have a thought for the latest summer trends as well, but can we please just talk about this for a hot second.  WHO in the freaking fashion billion dollar industry, decided it is cool & trendy to wear your billion dollar coat casually thrown about your shoulders as if you were too messed up or lazy to find it’s well sewn arm holes at 6:00pm on a Wednesday??

True, fashion sometimes is not all about practicality, and as an artist of sorts, I can support such matters, however this trend just grinds my north eastern jersey bred winter girl gears.  Have you even lived a full North Eastern Winter, NYFW goers? Have you?!…we are not known for the most romantic scenery of sorts anywhere from December-April/May.  So with that in mind, why on this earth are we not wearing our coats to their full potential?

Aimee, I love your style so so much and I admire your fashion blogging career, but would you honestly  not be more comfortable wearing your perfect coral leather jacket displaying the fit the way it was MADE to be worn? Like maybe you did put your arms in the holes after the camera shot this…I hope.

LITERALLY ^ this girl is wearing a fur layer under her exterior jacket layer.  That just sounds like a lot of effort no?
I just…don’t understand.

Finally, this trend has actually gone to the extend that somewhere out there a designer discovered they could make a jacket  *~appear~* as though the coat was draped ever so nonchalantly, and so the cape blazer was born.

I don’t know about you all, because this seems to have been a trend that set sail before I could climb on board the ship, but this trend is one I am hoping will not remain popular among the fashion forward community.

In the words of the famous Edna Mode, “NO CAPES.”

That is all.

What do you guys think? Are you team cape jacket, or are you team arms exist?  Let me know, real talk.
