Fashion Friday: What I’m Loving Lately

by Courtney on March 30, 2012

Heyyyy, check it out! It’s a Fashion Friday post! I’ve been wanting to put one of these together for a couple weeks, and I finally got the chance.

So now…here’s a little peek at what I’m loving lately!

*****

Fashion Scarves: Anything that screams “spring!”

 

I’ve always been a fan of wearing scarves, but there are just so many cute ones out right now that are perfect for the spring season. (If you haven’t seen it already, check out the video I posted with 25 Ways to Wear a Scarf!) I’m hoping to grab another bright and colorful one soon.

Denim: Colored Skinny Jeans (these are from Target)

I’ve been so on the fence with the colored denim, but lately I feel like I’m starting to come around. Gina posted about them the other day, and Clare looked super cute in her blue skinnies last week. I’m thinking about trying on a pair…we’ll see how it goes.

Nail Polish: O.P.I Holland Collection “I Don’t Give a Rotterdam”

I got my tootsies painted in this color last week but now I want to buy a bottle of my own. I love it! Much different from my usual color choices.

Sports Bra: C9 by Champion Vented Sports Bra

I couldn’t find this particular model online, but it was in stores and has quickly become a favorite. It gives a little bit of shape (which I most definitely need), just enough support, and is super comfy to boot.

Cross-Training Sneakers: Puma Pumagility

You may remember that back in February, I bought a new pair of running sneakers, but I’ve been a very, very bad girl and have been wearing them for everything. All day, everyday at work, for every type of workout I do. I really would like to keep those just for running, so I’ve been looking to invest in another pair of cross-trainers. This pair got voted “runner-up” in the April issue of Fitness Magazine…now I’ve just got to find them in a store to try on!

Pinterest Inspiration: Lots cute outfit ideas I love…

 

Okay…maybe I’m just kidding on that last one. Winking smile

Question for the Afternoon:

What fashion finds are you loving lately?

I’ve been wanting to try out colored denim too. I think you’ve convinced me to go try those on at Target..

the bright colored skinny jeans have really grown on me recently too. at first, i didn’t like them much and thought they were a little too “bold” for my taste, but now i’m really starting to like them! i’m going shopping this afternoon for some new spring attire, so i might just have to pick up a pair myself. ;)

I’m loving scarfs right now too especially with this crazy weather I can use them for warmth&fashion! Sandles & sundresses! I’ve never shopped at maurice’s but I got a postcard in the mail with the cutest blue and white stripped dress with a brown belt. I know need to find it online!

I can’t decide how I feel about the colored denim yet either! I keep thinking it’s cute but I don’t know, I’m just not sold yet!

I’m loving the bright (almost fluorescent), bold, geometric patterns out there right now (at Ann Taylor, Banana, Jcrew, etc) but I have a feeling I’ll regret buying too much of it.

I’m loving the colored skinny jeans right now too. This is going to sound really snobbish but I tried the ones on at Target and they were awful… felt very cheap and did not fit good. I ended up trying on a pair of Paige jeans at Nordstrom Rack and fell in love. They fit so well and just feel better in general too. I am always for a bargain and hate paying lots of money on clothes but I have found that it is worth it for jeans! :)

I totally agree! I have no problem paying $5.00 for a top, bag, or shoes, but I will pay top dollar for a good, solid-fitting pair of jeans. There’s nothing else like it! :)

Thanks for sharing some of those ideas! For those of us who aren’t as good with fashion (cough cough me cough cough), it’s nice to have some help! ;)

I love scarfs, Banana Repuplic had some really pretty spring colors in. I think the colored denim looks great on almost everyone I have seen wearing it, however I really don’t know if I could pull it off…
It’s not so much a fashion find but I really want a pair of TOMS! When I first saw them I thought they were kinda odd looking, now I can’t wait to buy a pair! They really grew on me :)

I’m the same way with TOMS right now! I was also the same way with UGGS and they grew on me in a big way…
Haha, I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before I cave :)

I love the idea of colored denim but for someone who only wears jeans a few times a week I decided that colored cropped pants would be more practical. I can wear those to the office AND out on weekends. I just recently bought a green pair that I love.

I’ve been loving the spring scarves lately. They are so pretty! I also want to try colored denim jeans but I’m afraid they will look stupid. I guess I don’t know until I try! :)

I love all of the outfits you posted! They are all super cute!

I was a tad worried about you when I saw those glasses- WOWZA! Then again, I bet you could pull them off and look super cute…… Each outfit is super adorable!

I am loving the colored denim – but it just looks SO weird on me. If I can find a pair that doesn’t look weird I will definitely buy them!

SCARVES!! They make me happy! I feel like adding a good scarf to an outfit really chics it up a bit and I’ve been buying them like mad. I actually bought the one that you just got but realized when I got home that I have a solid scarf in that exact shade of minty green. I’ve returned it so I can get something in the blue, aqua or turquoise family to switch it up a bit.

I am loving the colored denim too, but as others have posted, those from Target we VERY unforgiving on me. My hips and thighs require a bit more structure than those provide. I heard a quote that for women, finding the right pair of jeans is harder than finding the right man, ain’t that the truth!? The other concern is picking a versatile color that will go with a lot of my current wardrobe, apparently I own a slew of pink tops (but only just realized this), so green? Blue?

As for Tom’s I’m about to get onboard with those myself, check these purdy puppies out: http://www.toms.com/womens/classics/silver-crochet-women-s-classics I friggin love them!

Now you’ve got me on the hunt, lol. I’ve had luck with Gap jeans in the past and skinny jeans don’t always look good on me, so here’s an alternative for others like me that want the colored denim, but not the skinny style: http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=48607&vid=1&pid=251056&scid=251056012 I might have to go shopping this weekend ;)

I LOVE Scarves! I used to think I couldn’t wear them, but now I totally rock them all the time! I dunno about the colored jeans, but everything else look way cute! Those wedges are soo tall- I’d almost be as tall as my hubby in those! :)

Scarves are my favorite … there’s just something so fun and carefree about them!

LOVE the second outfit you posted. I have a bracelet that’s almost identical!

Colored jeans are tough for me. I have tried them on and always look like the Jewish easter bunny. I’ll keep trying though – the dark orange ones are always really alluring to me.

I love the fashion scarves but I feel like I can’t pull them off! My style is so laid back that when I try to dress cute I feel “out of place” if you will. Haha. I love those leopard flats! That outfit is so cute!!

I love the spring scarves- the colors make me feel so peppy and springlike.

All of those Pinterest found outfits would look amazing on you! If you find them, you should buy a couple and post you in the outfit alongside the picture of the outfit.
