I am not typically a “trend person.” I have, for example, very little desire to layer fishnet stockings under my jeans (or wear jeans at all, if we’re being honest about where I am at the moment).
This is not because I am disinterested in trends (fashion or otherwise); it’s because I’m lazy. And because the only people who see me most days are the FedEx guy and my kids. Not 100% sure about the FedEx guy, but I do know that neither of the latter two appreciate a pop of color unless the pop in question happens to be from the nice man in the musical truck who makes mom mad because he will not stop showing up before dinner.
Over the weekend I had some downtime in front of a fire and a couple of movies (after Saturday night’s debacle we decided to spend Sunday giving up completely: we ordered in food, and let the kids watch as many consecutive hours of TV as they could stomach, which turned out to be about fifteen), and so I ended up doing something I rarely do, which is troll around on fashion sites. (I tend not to do this, incidentally, because technically RG is a fashion site – or at least includes outfit posts – and when I see the sparklingly lit, perfectly composed photographs that my colleagues put up I get all I NEED TO DO THAT TOOOOOO. And I can’t, because 1) kids, 2) lazy, 3) life. And then I feel bad, and have to go re-read this post, and it’s all way too time-consuming and I might as well just stick to Perez Hilton.)
Anyway, do you know what I discovered?!?!?! Some of the trends that
everybody everybody on Instagram has been into these past couple of months are TOTALLY MY JAM (and if you pop down to the post right below this one you’ll see a ton of shoppable examples of each of these at a range of prices).
