WTT Floating in Florals

Hey Everyone, it’s finally full on SPRING TIME.

I don’t know about you, but I have hung up my down jackets and shoved my winter blues into a dark place for the next few months.  Finally, it’s warm enough to rock those open toe booties you’ve been dying to break out since January.

With spring as any season comes trends, so it is time for another WTT!  Today I’ll be discussing something groundbreaking….florals. I know, right Miranda? Related image

 

Anyway, this season, it’s not just about adding a pop of flowery fun to your outfits, but rather about making your entire ensemble a growing garden. Let’s begin shall we?

Okay so, although the runways were beaming with bold, vibrant versions of this trend, you may be thinking, nah not for me.  Hang tight, because I do believe it is possible to pull this look into normal-person mode for the streets.

Here, Christina from The Boho Flow is totally rocking this trend.  The two piece she found is pulled together  and is not outrageous for a daily outting. The floral pattern doesn’t scream out too loudly, and she even managed to pull in a SECOND trend by layering those fishnets. YASS GIRL.

I’m a big fan of matching two piece outfits in general, so making them vibrant and covered in a pattern of sorts is basically demanding a chunk of my latest paycheck. Anyway, they’re super easy to navigate on days when my mind does not want to work too hard at finding an outfit, and they still look polished and complete. Anything to make a Monday morning run smoother, and I’m in.  So here, with the pant and jacket combination you can even pull off office-chic trendy any day of the week.

Natasha Goldenberg, Russian style icon and journalist brought this trend right down to the streets in her two piece suit attire.  This is also a great way to bring this fun vibe into a professional appearance, but will also make you stand out in a sea of black blazers.

Maybe we can’t all afford those pricey accessories that she’s toting along, but the center piece (lol get it….like a table flower center piece)  of the look keeps the trend spirit strong within us.

 

Let’s explore some more realistic styles to get shopping!

LuLu’s has this blue hued beauty set that is definitely wearable right away! You could even take a leather jacket (as see previously) and layer if it’s a bit too chilly for bearing all arms still.

aaaaa

Honestly, sometimes Forever 21 is worth taking a deep breath and browsing through.

 

Thank you for reading if you stuck with me through all those patterns and prints. General synopsis for those skim-readers: Florals are fun. ~*Spring into it*~

Puns are fun also.

Love Ya, Mean It,

WTT White Jeans in the Winter?

Welcome back to What The Trend!  I know it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted, but what better time to reconnect with old friends than around the holidays?!  

So today’s topic is something that I have been noticing that has been breaking the fashion rules. Wearing white jeans in the winter.  So like any fashion loving styling abiding citizen, my initial reaction to seeing this was “WHATTT in the style world are you doing! The style gods are shunning you!…..or are they?”  After letting this trend settle in, my eyes adjusted.  Seeing many bloggers and style icons pull of this look with a classic pair of OTK boots, my style rule book readjusted.

Check out this babe rocking winter white like a pro!  Winter white can be one of the hardest looks to pull off.  I believe this look takes some serious pre-planning.  Finding just the right shade of white to complement the outfit is the key to this trend.

Blogger, Sydne Style, is rocking this look.  The monochrome blend of black and white becomes a classic look rather than an off season faux pas!

And finally A Southern Drawl blogger, Grace Wainwright, found the perfect shade of suade to pair with this transitional look into the colder months.  

Feeling style inspired? Me too, until I attempted this look and felt my fashion genes (see what I did there? 😉 ) had betrayed all my trendy knows.

So, if you are thinking of attempting this trend, here are my final tips on rocking the winter white jean:

  1. Find the Perfect white jean for YOU.  Finding jeans can already be a daunting process so if you don’t already own a pair that you know look killer on you, maybe this trend isn’t worth spending the money on the 2-3 times you may be wearing it this winter. 
  2. TRY IT ON BEFORE you are rushing around with 5 minutes in the morning and decide this is the time to explore your trend setter side.  This could lead to panic and late Monday morning havoc. 
  3. If you don’t have the pairings, this look could easily look like a mistake.  Tall boots, suede materials, a cozy sweater are all things that pull this look into a winter vibe.  Without these things put together, the jeans will stand out and begin to look out of season, making the style gods right….and I sure hate when other people are right. 
  4. Have fun & follow your inspiration!  If you see a blogger, friend or style icon rock this trend follow what they do! Observe how they pulled the look together and then compare it to your own closet.  If you don’t own those excessively expensive Stewart Weitzman OTK boots, don’t kill yourself forcing the trend.  

Okay so to sum things up, this trend is a style RISK!  I am all for supporting breaking the style rules, but be true to you and your closet!  I can say as a babe on a budget that this one isn’t worth breaking the bank for.  

So, if the jeans fit, rock ’em!

Amanda

DIY Distressed Boyfriend Denim

Hey everyone!! Welcome back to Eat Your Glitter.  Things have been insane lately, but I am gaining some more free time and will be on a more frequent update to the blog schedule soon!  In the meantime, I NEED to share the latest DIY project!

So I found these old boys jeans hiding in the depths of what I call a closet, and I seized the opportunity for a crafty upgrade!  Similar to how I DIY-ed my black skinnies (see post here about it!)  I took the same method and hacked away at these til they came out JUST how a distressed boyfriend jean should!

They are durable for work, since I always am COVERED in acrylic paint, I don’t mind dirtying them up a bit, and they are the perfect weekend go-to casual look!

Let me know what you think!

xxo,

“Get Up. Dress Up. Show Up.” A second take on this classic phrase that will motivate you all day when you are getting that shit DONE and being a boss lady of course.

 

 

Hey everyone!! Here’s a quick little update for you since I’ve been insanely busy as a student finishing my design and projects for finals, I figured I’d pop a little post up for you!

I am still working and striving for my dream of creating beautiful, fun, and unique items for you all to rock, and in this process I have decided not only to post my shirts on my own website (Eat Your Glitter) but as a part of an amazing site called Print All Over Me. They have so many amazing talented artists and designers creating new items all the time and I figured what a great way to start to share some of my designs! 

These two shirts are LIVE on the site, I linked it right above!

I hope you like what I’m starting to show you guys and as always if you do, please let me know and link back here or to Eat Your Glitter!

xxo,

Amanda
