Spring Trend: Clear Accessories

Back when I was in middle school I had this clear plastic purse that was soooo pressed for. And if I remember correctly, I bought it from Claire’s. I wore that bag until the strap broke! It was one of my staple pieces in 8th grade, although I didn’t realize it at the time.  And somehow, several years later, that trend seems to have creeped back into the fashion world.

Runways were crawling with transparent accessories for Spring 2013 so I thought I would share some of the cute options I’ve seen:

And if you need a little more color, these may be to your liking as well:

Although I don’t plan on investing too much money into this trend, I really am loving it! I may have to snag a clutch or necklace! Those oxfords are calling my name as well. What do you all think of the trend? I knew fashion was cyclical but geez. I am going to start keeping things I don’t wear just in case they come back in style! Lol…

Hope you all enjoyed this post…xxxx

Journals & Things…

IMG_4255

At the beginning of every new year, I buy a new journal and a new calendar. So last week my Mom (hey Wanda!) and I went to Barnes and Noble and found some calendars for 50% off. So I grabbed the turquoise one pictured above, which has both the monthly and daily calendars in it. I don’t like my personal calendar to be too big or too small, so I thought this one was a nice balance. Can’t beat that for $7.50!

Luckily, a few of my girlfriends bought me journals for my birthday last year so I didn’t have to go out and buy any. I’m glad that I’ve finally finished writing in my peacock journal (finished on Saturday), and I am trying to decide between these other two journals. Both have messages that resonate with me and are quite symbolic considering that it is a new year and I am embarking upon a new journey. A new beginning in addition to believing that any and everything is possible are both messages that I plan to take with me throughout the year…

This particular journal is super cute because it has the most adorable messages throughout. Every couple of pages has a cute little quote…While I love fashion, my first love is writing. Journaling has really helped me to not only record my growth as an individual but it has also helped me to express my emotions in a positive way.

Okay, so which journal do you guys think I should start writing in first? Do you keep a journal?

I hope you all enjoyed this post…xoxo
