Beanies on and around my head…. (it’s Trendayyy Tuesday!)

But first… let me take a selfie!

Okay so maybe that pop culture reference is getting stale, but for TRENDAYYY Tues I wanted to show you my new hat with which I am obsessed!

That pic was taken on a trip home to the great plains of Iowa! It was characteristically wintery out there, so naturally I needed to keep my noggin cozy and stylish. What better way than with a brightly colored beanie! The hat was made by Echo, bought at Nordstrom, and was $32. (I swear I have already worn it 32 times in less than 32 days. Totally justified. )

It is no secret that beanies are a mainstay for chilly weather; the only problem is there are too many to choose! There are red beanies, blue beanies, thick beanies, and slick beanies! Shiny beanies, line-y beanies, girly beanies, and swirly beanies! Beanies with poms, beanies for moms, and beanies that help do good deeds made by TOMS!

AHHHHH !!!! MAKE THE RHYMING STOP!! I’ve only got one little head!

I managed to narrow down the pack to some of my favorite looks to match some of my favorite moods. Check out these items I would pick for my dream closet!

Yes, I did put a $250 fur hat and a $10 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hat in the same style guide.

I call that being well rounded  😉

While shopping, I thought I wanted to add a “classy” hat to the line-up, so I did the most basic thing ever and typed “classy beanie” into a Polyvore image generator. This was the only search result:

Cheers! To beanies, beanies, the magical fruit.

recently I’ve been wearing clothes (trendy pics!)

Fummer? Sall? It is too chilly for shorty shorts and too warm for sweaters, but even with these imposing circumstances, I’ve decided to continue to wear clothes.

In fact, I wore some out the other night to my friend Katie’s birthday party.

AND DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS TIME FOR??! That’s right, kids. This is the part of the show where I put on clothes that I thought were cute enough to spend money on and do as the fashion bloggers do by taking trendy pics.

Except I do it my way.

Here’s what I wore: a B&W patterned blouse from Collective Concepts with my favorite  loose-fitting polyester pants from J. Crew and  heels from Isola. Right now my nails are a deep raspberry shellac, and for makeup I went with an lined pink lip and neutral smokey because birthday!

Here’s me being casual with my September Harper’s Bazaar.

And still trying to make this outfit look cool from afar.

But then I found an apple core. Uh…. oops.

And then decided I should just cut to the chase and contort my self so you could see the whole outfit.

Oh, and here is a peek at the nails + makeup:

If a burglar stole this exact outfit I would try to replicate the style with these items! From right to left: Everlane Silk Round Collar- $78, H&M loose teal pants- $24.95, Metika Wedge Sandal- $79 @ shopbop.com, and I’d hunt down nail polish like this one from OPI if I wanted to recreate without shellac.

Pictures of my TRRRENNNNDAAYY outfit 7.08

SUMMA SUMMA SUMMA TIIIIIME

Leather shorts + cool and relaxed blouse + shoes  tall enough to make up for the veggies I refused to eat as a kid. (bonus points for matching my hair) These leather shorts have become one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. They are high-quality, versatile, and aren’t obnoxious or tight. They are perfect for summer nights, as long as it isn’t a bajillion degrees outside. This easy breezy shirt is also ideal for summer nights because it can breath, but has just enough fabric to ward of chill as the sun sets.  I was pretty pumped to find these new wedges at a little boutique on my street. I adore the feeling of wearing heels, but lawd knows this city wasn’t made for pumps!

Enjoy this musical edition of TRRRENDDAYY outfit! I’m still so obsessed with this song, and heard on the radio today that Robin Thicke might actually be considering changing his name to “Blurred Lines”… hmm… Let’s pretend like that is a great idea and dance about it…..

…. and that was the story of how Caroline split her leather shorts.

Haha just kidding the shorts are fine, but that did make a better story, didn’t it?

Don’t try these dance moves at home. Or wait… actually if you must do them at home go right ahead. They sure as hell don’t belong in public.
