Continuing/ditching trends

Now that we're a few days into 2014, I've been thinking about the 2013 trends. Which ones can we say goodbye to, and which ones should we continue into the new year? I've come up with a few in each category to make it a little easier to know which is which.

Also something I'll include with some examples-ways to rework the expired trends for 2014!

I'm still loving...
Braids. With millions of styles to choose from, you can never go wrong with this effortless look.

Mirrors. Actual mirrors, mirrored trays, mirrored tables.... mirrors.

Booties. I don't see booties going out any time soon. To the contrary, I think the simple styles (imagine these without the studs) will become classic.

Lipstick. It took me a while to get into this trend, my skin is very sensitive and my lips are no exception. However, I'm so glad I did; it really adds to the overall look of an outfit. Lipstick is here to stay!

Say goodbye to...
Burlap. I cannot see this trend go quickly enough. And this bedroom... REALLY! No way to rework this one.

This outfit. Don't get me wrong; I love sweaters. I love boots. I love socks. And lord knows I love my skinny jeans. But throw in a scarf and this outfit is officially the most overworn outfit of 2013! Keep these things in your closet, but get more creative this year.

The (expected) statement necklace. Now, don't fret, I still love a good statement necklace and there are a ton of ways to do this right in 2014! We just need to, again, get more creative with the necklaces we choose (avoid bubbles like this) and what we choose to wear them with. Instead, go for something similar to this:

Emily at +Cupcakes and Cashmere has it right.

I hope you find my little guide helpful! Some just need to go... but do some of your own research and find simple ways to make it new in 2014. Have a fantastic Friday!


  1. Amen on the sweater/skinnies/boots trend!
