TRENDS I WANT TO TRY

"Bee Happy" shoes worn by Nicole from Cedar and Rush

We're getting to the end of my Go Blog Social posts, but I wanted to make sure I shared some of the fun trends I observed at the conference that have made me want to mix things up in my own wardrobe. Everyone looked stellar.  I wish I would have captured even more images of everyone's outfits, but I did manage to snag a few. 

#1:  Hats.  Fedoras have bee prevalent the past few years, but these felt wide brim hats are everywhere, and I'm loving it!  There were three girls at the conference {pictured below: Alisha from Abode & Abide; Taylor from Vosse. not pictured: Sarah from One Sparrow Creative (I'm so bummed I didn't get a picture of her)} who wore these hats, and they looked so breezy and cool.  (Plus, they were all so sweet and fun to be around.)  I don't know if I could pull off this type of hat as cute as they did, but I sure wanna try! 

#2: Maxi Dresses.  Confession time.  I don't own a maxi dress.  I'll pause for you to gasp.  It seems like just about everyone is wearing this super comfortable looking trend.  I haven't found one that fits me quite right.  I think I need something that gathers at the waist a bit, but Elle from The Clean Project nailed it with her cute dress.  I love how she paired it with the leather jacket.

#3: Brights and Pastels.  Heather and Allie from Twenty Something coordinated so well together.  They looked beautiful alone, but together, their outfits complimented one another and represented one of the things I'm into this season--mixing really bright colors with more muted colors or pastels.  I like the juxtaposition of the colors.  The muted/pastel color gets a little pop, while the bright color is toned down.  Well done, ladies!

#3: Playful Pieces.  I really loved these "Bee Happy" shoes Nicole from Cedar and Rush wore.  They were just so fun, just like her.  It makes me think about this Octopus necklace my mom bought me a few years ago.  I need to break that thing out again.  Life's too short to take your wardrobe too seriously.

#4: T-shirt and skirt.  I loved what Erica wore to the conference, too.  It's something I've been getting more into, but after seeing the cute way she styled her outfit, want to do more often.  Knotting a t-shirt over a skirt or dress is a great way to make your outfit casual dressy (that's a thing, right?).  I didn't get a full length shot of her, but she had white Chucks on, too.  I also really love this photo of her.  The lighting is magical.
 
I shared what I wore to the conference here.  I know some of you lovely ladies did outfit posts about what you wore, too, so add your link in the comments!

  1. "Playful Pieces" --that's one I like. I often use my earrings as my not-serious part of my wardrobe. I have bee earrings and fork earrings and safety pin earrings...anything that's a little quirky!

    1. Your earrings sound so fun and cool! I wore my octopus necklace today to add a little touch of fun to my outfit. Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. I want to try hats too - specifically the fedoras - I can't seem to find a cute "girly" one for my big "man like" head. So I need to go shopping in the men's department.

    1. Ha! Hat shapes are weird and rarely look good on me. I always check out the men's section for hats and think they have the coolest styles. Just stick a flower on one to make it more girly:) Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. You should! I need to be doing it more, too. I like that it makes dresses more casual, and it would be a good way to mix up the colors to make it seem like a different outfit:) Hope you have a great weekend!

  7. I feel like my style is so boring, but I'm afraid to jazz it up a bit, mostly because I feel like I'd stick out like a sore thumb. Let's face it - Lincoln, NE is not the most stylish place on the planet!

    1. I hear you! It's just been the past few years where I've started taking more fashion risks. In fact, I wore an outfit to church on Easter that I felt so silly about. I really wanted to wear it, but after I put it all together, my husband said I looked like a Dutch girl:) Oh, well. I really liked it and felt good in it. You go girl and wear whatever speaks to you!
