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?

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!

As you can see, I have a really small closet me and my fiance’ actullay share a closet, so I like to keep my side as organized as possible. I have a lot of clothes and accessories, so I love coming up with new ways to organize and makes things more accessible and easy to find!

When my closet starts looking messy like it was in my before image, I know it’s time to clean and get organized. I have a few steps I like to take to achieve what you see in my after picture! I will list those steps below along with pictures!

The first step I like to do, is to completly clear everything out of your closet, you will be able to see what you have to work with, and like I did I moved some things in different stops to make it look more neat! Clearing everything out will also allow you to see everything you have, things you may have forgotton you have, things maybe you know you wont where anymore and so on. I like to set everything aside and while im orgazining it gives you a change to go through everything you have.

 

Now that you have everything moved out, it can just look like a big mess (which it is), this is what is going to help you see what you have and to better make since of everything, and how you want to organize it!

Personally I like to organize by season, and then color, so we are coming into summer, so I like to put my dresses, tanks and so on in front, and put longer sleeves and jackets either away or towards the back of the closet, and then from there I like to organize those sections by color! If you just wear whatever, organize maybe by what you where most often!

I personally would like to hang up all my jeans, unfornantly my closet is just not big enough, so I bought a white sterlite 3 drawer to put my graphic or plain shirts, in the top drawer, and jeans, capris, and shorts in the other drawers to still keep them organized!

I love resuing my shopping bags, and cute baskets. I had an empty space on top of my 3 drawer that hold my shirts, and jeans, So I decided to take a cute basket that wasn’t really being used and I put all my camis, and undershirts in there, and it added a super cute touch. I have 2 large shelves above where my clothes hang, so I took my bigger shopping bags, and used those to store my scaves, and other smaller items!

I recently bought a cute heart hanger, to hang multiple things on, such as my belts, and purses, these come in handy since they are kind of hard to store without looking messy, so I thought this was really cute to put right in front! My shoes were not to hard, I just had a white show holder, so I put most of them in there, and at the very back of my closet I have a white cloth hangy 6 drawer, where I keep other flats, and some of my smaller boots, and also the first 2 sections I have all my nicer tank tops.

   

Well I had fun cleaning my closet and going through everything, I hope this helped some of you, I loved the way it turned out! I hope this post was not to long and boring, but I hoped helped or gave you some ideas for storage!
