The knotted trend is back, this was popular in the 90’s, this time this trend is being worn in a more classic way, and taken on a lot more than just the classic knotted shirt. This trend is also being seen with long and short skirts, which is probably my new favorite way!

You may shy away from this trend if you don’t like to show any skin, however there are many ways you can wear this with little to no skin showing!

What do you think, glad this trend is back, or are you still unsure?

I have been going crazy online window shopping, and every website I go on, I am seeing collars everywhere, especially collars with lace and embellishments! I LOVE THIS TREND….. It’s very girly, feminine, but also edgy and unqiue! All the shirts below I found on Forever 21, but there are so many websites that also have collared shirts such as Zara, and Piperlime, to name a couple.

   

What do you think of this trend, love it, or are you going to pass?

This DIY is pretty self explanatory, and pretty much free, however, I did have to buy some hair clips, because I had really bobby pins that were really small and hard to paint, so I found this pack of 12 black hair clips at the dollar store, so this project only costed me $1, I had all the nail polish on hand!

I did 2 coats of fun summer nail polish colors, let them dry and they are ready to be worn! Just a fun spin to add some color to your hair accessories if you already have these items on hand!

QUICK TIP:
Use opaque colors or creamy nail polishes, the blue color I used because it was not opaque did not come out as great because you can still see the black showing through, but I just went ahead and did a 3 coat on that one!

The peplum trend has become ever so popular, and all over the runway.depending on your body type this style can be hard to pull off, if you go for a top that defines your wasit like the top above, it’s more of a subtle peplum, but it looks great without going to far if your a little scared of the trend or it may be too much.

Tips to make this trend work:

Defining your waist is what the peplum trend is meant to do, when wearing a peplum shirt make sure the top of the peplum hits your waist line, or you can always add a skinny belt to define your waist!

A peplum creates volume, so when your wearing a peplum dress, shirt or skirt, make sure to keep the rest of your outfit slimming!

This trend can be worn many different ways wether it be with shirts, skirts or dresses, however, try to keep to one, but play around with different colors, and patterns. My favorite way is with shirts, and a pair of dark skinny capris or jeans!

I love the outfit above I put together to show how you can make it work, but still be subtle!

Is this a trend you are willing to try, or have tried, or are you going to skip out?

Floral jeans and patterned jeans are everywhere right now! What do you think, do you wear floral jeans? How much is to much on a pair? I have yet to catch on to patterned and floral jeans, not really my style, but if I was to try I would go for a cheaper pair incase I decide to don’t like them! If you do wear floral or pattern jeans how do you style them, I would love to see!

I showed briefly on how I organize my tank tops in my first post I made on here, on how I organize my closet which you can view here, there are many fun and unique ways to organize tank tops, or you can simply fold them in your dresser drawer if you have ton of them. I however LOVE baskets and organizing with baskets, and I don’t have a million tanks, enough for one person and many colors since I only wear these tanks under other shirts, so this method works for me!

My basket was beginning to look very messy, and this is my cats very spot to sleep, so usually this baskets gets messy and very hairy every single day, but I love my cat so I don’t mind! I figured since it was a mess this would be a quick and easy blog post to show you how I organize my tank tops more in-depth (there really isn’t much to it).

There is really only one step to this process, and that is after I take everything out of the basket, I organize my tank tops by color, and then within the color I organize by style, most are the same but I have v-necks, and razor back tanks so I like to organize by style as well, and then I go ahead and put each section so the colors on my side of the basket and my more neutrals on the other side of the basket. If you have way more tanks than I do, you can probably get two baskets and put all your colored tanks in one basket and all your neutrals in another, my basket is pretty full, but if I buy anymore I will probably need another so It’s not so stuffed full!

 I hope you enjoyed this simple post on how to organize cami’s, if you have different way that is effective please share below, I would love to see!
