I'm not a big fan of bright color. My normal wardrobe is black on black or denim with darker tones or neutrals. I really would like to add some pastels to my collection though to brighten and soften things up a bit. Some colors I really like are peach and mint. I really like the way peach looks with my skin tone. It's bright and warming without being too overpowering. And mint is one of my favorite colors! I don't really have any white shirts or light colored shirts either so that would be nice to have. I tend to steer from light shirts because I cannot control how much I sweat and that a) is gross, and b) ruins light colored clothing. However a nice dolman sleeve top can remedy this. :)
High waisted high waisted high waisted. My favorite trend ever. I have a very defined hourglass figure (37-26-40) so I love showing off my tiny waist. I hated the low rise trend with a passion and it was awful trying to find anything but when I was in middle/high school. I'm glad this trend is back to stay. I also am a big fan of 90's fashion. I love denim and have been dying for a denim jacket or collared shirt for a long while. It was grungy and I love the crop top trend paired with high waisted bottoms.
I first saw the Laura Mercier lip stain while reading a blog post from Keiko Lynn and I fell in love with the rosy, pink color. I have been lusting for it for a while but just never got around to buying it/asking for it. Same with the watch necklace. I think it's a cute, whimsical little accessory that is also very practical! I don't like wearing accessories much since I feel like they just get in the way so something like this would be a good thing to own! I always use this one green purse my parents bought for a me a few years back, and it's nice to have but it sometimes gets in the way when I'm walking around with my boyfriend. I think this denim backpack has a nice grungy feel to it and can hold a lot. Plus it would be easy to sling around my back and have it out of the way.
I love wedges so much (so much so I got some shipped straight from Canada lol) and I want to expand my collection. I have mostly black heels I never wear so I want to add some color to my shoe collection. I also would like another pair of nice brown boots. I really like the Forever 21 pair I own. Flat boots are so comfy but stylish!
I hope you like my picks! Tell me what trends you are looking forward to trying this coming season.
