What I Wore – Striped Shorts

First of all, I apologize for my room! haha I had to cancel the order for my dresser and other furniture because it’s still backordered for another month, but that is another story. (guess I’m going furniture shopping again).

I also apologize for the lame pictures, but I live by myself! 

I am so excited that it is getting so warm! Spring and summer clothes! Yay! I love these shorts, because they are so lightweight and not too short!

These fun crotched shoes are from Urban Oufitters for only $36! They have lots of colors and they are my favorite for summer! I love them! (again sorry about the fuzzy picture!)

Looks to Keep for 2012

Sometimes it feels like trends change so fast and you are left with a closet full of styles that you can’t wear anymore. Worst feeling ever! I usually invest in classics because of this, but sometimes it is just so fun to buy new trends and styles! Finding a way to wear these trends into the next season can be a challenge, but that’s what makes fashion great! According to People StyleWatch Magazine, here are some of the trends that are continuing on from last year/season into 2012. So get excited to remix your wardrobe, find new outfit pairings, or shop for an updated version! My closet thanks you!

5 Bags Every Girl Needs

I saw an article for this idea in Glamour Magazine so I thought I would put my own twist on it. In my opinion you can never have too many bags. It’s kind of like shoes…you can’t grow out of them or get too fat or skinny for them! They’re a great accessory! However one bag probably will not work for all of your needs. These 5 kinds of bags should be just the right amount for the essentials. Then you can build on your collection.

1. Day Bag
Make sure you buy a neutral color that will match with a lot of outfits and one that will hold everything you need throughout the day.
Michael Kors ‘Gia’ Ostrich Embossed Satchel

2. Evening Clutch
An embellished or sparkly clutch works for a formal evening or just with jeans for a fun night out.
La Regale Mesh Box Clutch – Nordstrom

3. Canvas Tote
Use it for a day at the beach or to be green and bring your groceries home in!
Boardwalk Tote – J.Crew

4. Classic Black Bag
It’s the one bag you can wear with anything and you will save forever.
Tory Burch ‘Amanda’ Satchel

5. Travel Bag
Make sure it is sturdy and the right size! Wheels are always a plus though!
Fossil ‘Vintage Key-Per’ Coated Canvas Duffel Bag
