What’s Trending Now: Beanies

Beanie Hat Trend

 

Another one of our old favs from the 90’s is back, and although it shares it’s name with the ultimate icon of the 90’s the beanie baby, this trend actually has a purpose. The “beanie” hats are back (right in time for winter I might add) and have been given quite a facelift. No longer are they just for the men in your life trying to keep warm, now they come in fun and different colors and shapes, all of which are perfect to give your outfit that last finishing touch this winter.

Comment below and let me know what you think of this trend, will you be rocking it or leaving this one for the boys?

Tis the Season to Be Glossy {November GlossyBox Review}

 

I am definitely the definition of a “beauty product junkie”. I can spend hours perusing the makeup aisles and probably spend days “getting lost” in beauty supply stores. With that being said I was thrilled when I woke up this past week to find that my first month’s GlossyBox had arrived. The theme of the November box was “Tis the Season to be Glossy” which I thought was perfect to kick off the start of the holiday party season. From what I could tell from other G reviews that I read online, there were several versions of this box sent out, all with different fun products to try! Keep reading to see what items I received and my initial thoughts on these products!

How I Style Tights in the Winter


Dressing for winter is like a double edge sword, twice as useful but also twice as many chances for mistakes. On the one hand you have soo many more cute cold weather accessories you can mix and play with, but on the other hand it can be a challenge trying to figure out how to layer, add, and subtract pieces all the while remaining stylish. This tricky equation gets all the more complicated if you’re not actually prepared for winter and have none of the a fore mentioned cute winter accessories. I admittedly was so NOT prepared for this winter. Being a southern girl true and true, this is my first real winter I’ve ever experienced in my 20 something years (apparently we’re still in “Fall weather” and haven’t even hit Winter in NYC yet). Despite it being officially ridiculously cold outside I’ve been in denial, hoping that maybe if I pretend it’s not cold, I won’t actually be cold). Needless to say, after basically freezing my butt off for the past few weeks I’ve been forced to admit defeat.

Luckily, I was recently given the opportunity to try out the No nonsense brand of tights and leggings. I received a pair of denim leggings and a pair of patterned black tights. For the first outfit I wore, I layered a basic long sleeve shirt under a bright chiffon button down shirt. I added a blazer for extra warmth and paired it with the denim leggings and knee-high boots. I loved the fact that everyone thought they were actual jeans, but I had the comfort of wearing leggings! In the second outfit I choose to amp up the warmth factor of a sweater dress by pairing it with patterned tights and another bright blazer.

What’s Trending Now: Cropped Turtlenecks {Look for Less Edition}

What"s Trending Now: Look for Less Edition

Save Item: ASOS $14 / Splurge Item: American Apparel $30

Sleeveless turtlenecks in the 90’s were like the shoulder pads of the 80’s, everyone was doing it and no one was quite sure why. Are you trying to keep from catching a cold or are you trying to hide a hickey from your parents a la Full House? What ever the case apparently the 90’s are back… and I’m loving it! All jokes aside I love this trend and can’t wait till mine arrives in the mail. I bought a regular plain old sheer turtle neck from Express last year to wear to work in the winter and to my surprise, I ended up wearing it more than I anticipated. Since the summer I’ve been on the hunt for a cropped sleeveless variety but couldn’t find one anywhere until I finally tracked one down at American Apparel. I liked the look of it but not the price so I held off on buying it. Naturally, I was super pumped when I stumbled upon this one at ASOS yesterday during their Cyber Monday Sale, for less than half the price of the American Apparel one.

Need more convincing? Still not sure about this trend? Check out some of these stylish celebs rocking the trend!
