Oooh you guys leopard print is in this fall! I’ve been seeing it everywhere and it’s delightful! It’s to the point where I think it might be a new neutral in wardrobes. And I’m ok with that. I first started seeing it when I was browsing the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and knew it was going to be big this fall. I’ve since seen it all over Amazon and in other stores as well.
I searched all over to find some to share with you and I think you’ll love them! Fair warning, don’t just Google leopard print, you get a lot of tacky lingerie results before anything else comes up. Yikes. Anyway, my affiliate links to everything are below!

A trend I’m hoping to see for the summer months is color blocking! For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s basically sectioning off different parts of your body with a distinct color. For example, the yellow top would section off your upper torso and chest while the skirt would section off your legs and hips.
This was popular last year and it was really flattering. I love bright colors for the summer months too. Obviously I’m a lover of anything pink so that will be one of the color blocks I go to quite often. I think royal blue, yellow, lime green, and citrus orange would be great choices to pair with it.
I tend to buy solid color items because they go with so many things. I’m overcoming my aversion to pattern and learning how to wear it. I can be a little ridiculous about wearing more than one pattern though. For whatever reason, that’s been popular recently. No one likes a floral print with zebra stripes. It’s hideous. Really hideous. Forever 21 has glorified this trend and the hipsters and mini fashionistas have jumped on the band wagon. Personally, I’m staying far away from it. I never saw Jackie Kennedy or Audrey Hepburn rocking this trend so I’m just going to assume that it’s a fad and will look hilarious in photos 20 years from now.
Enjoy your Tuesday! I’m getting back in the work grind right now.
Remember that Taylor Swift song “22”? It was popular a few years back when her album “Red” debuted. I’ve been dying to sing this song for the last month because I’m turning 22 next Friday! Being born in the spring is the perfect testimony to the rebirth of nature and beauty that stems from it. April birthdays are the best birthdays!
Because I love the spring so much and my birthday is next week, I created the perfect little outfit to accompany this special event in my life. Like I mentioned in a previous post, I love the midi skirt and graphic tee trend! After Lent is finally over, I’ll be shopping for the perfect spring midi skirt to wear! I’m also all about the statement jewelry. My bestie, Lindsey, bought this gorgeous J Crew necklace and I’ve fallen in love with it. I’m also considering investing in some cute kitten heels. Since I’m around 5’8″, I typically don’t like to wear stilettos because I hit 6 foot and it’s awkward. Any tall girls out there who get what I’m saying?
Anyway, happy early birthday to me! I hope 22 is kind to me. 21 seemed to have a bit of an issue with me. Here’s to another year!
