Trend Report: Bandanas

Top: Forever 21 / Skirt: Yoins / Shoes: Union Bay / Bandana: Walmart

Happy Friday! I'm excited to share these photos because I took them on my roof (lol) and loved how they turned out. In my last Trend Report I styled a neck scarf, so it would only be a matter of time until I featured a bandana. Fun fact: back in middle school when I played soccer I always wore a red bandana, but in a style that covered my whole head. I remember one time during a game it actually fell off and I had to pick it up, haha! Dedication I tell ya. Since then I've actually gotten rid of my bandana collection, only to repurchase a mere 10 years later. As I've mentioned before, that's the magic of trends!

"Athleisure" is a trend that I've known was a thing for a while, but just recently caught onto the term. It's defined as clothing designed for working out, but is worn in settings other than the gym. It's basically cool now to wear workout clothes, without actually working out! My style has become significantly more casual and sporty recently, so I am really into the whole athleisure look. For today's Wednesday Wants I'm sharing some athleisure-inspired pieces from Shein's Sail Into Summer Sale.

Why You Need a Pair of Denim Shorts This Summer

T-shirt: Hanes / Shorts: thrifted / Shoes: Nike / Bag: thrifted / Hat: Nike

If there is one garment that just screams summer to me, it's the blue denim short. They're so easy to style and can be found in pretty much every store, and come in so many different designs. Cuffed, frayed, embroidered, or just simple, there's a perfect pair for everyone. I'm actually going shopping today and am on the hunt for another pair. The pair I'm wearing here are the only ones I have and I found them at a thrift store for like $4. That's another great thing about denim shorts, you can find them in all price ranges and can usually find a really nice vintage pair at a thrift or second-hand shop. Or you can cut off a pair of jeans and make them into shorts as well.

Trend Report: Jumpsuits & Neck Scarves

Jumpsuit: BooHoo / Sandals: Marshalls / Bag: Old Navy / Neckscarf: thrifted

Jumpsuits are the new craze and I've fallen in love with them. I even made a little jumpsuit wishlist in my Wednesday Wants post, the culottes style being my favorite. One-pieces are an easy outfit to just throw on and also a great palette to layer accessories. This look features this black jumpsuit from BooHoo as my foundation paired with a nude bag, wooden heels, and jewelry. Oh, and you can't forget a neck scarf.

My Monthly Buys | June 2016

I'm going to be honest and say that June was a huge f*ck it month for me when it came to money. But hey, I still had money left over to pay for my rent and bills, which is all that matters. Another thing I have to be honest about is that this whole My Monthly Buys series actually helps me spend less (yes, this month could have been a lot worse) because the more I buy, the more I have to document! Kind of a funny way to spend less, but it definitely works!
