Fall Style Wish List for 2018

fall style wish list

Happy Friday everyone! I’ve been counting down to the weekend for a million reasons but largely because my paycheck hits my bank account and I can do a little retail therapy! Wahoo! The temperatures have been dropping a little recently and I’ve been breaking out a sweater here and there but my closet would definitely appreciate a few more hanging inside. That and some new boots!

I’ve always had a hard time figuring out what my style is when it comes to fall fashion. I love classic cable knit sweaters and duck boots but I’m also a big fan of the slouchy, off the shoulder sweaters and over the knee boots everyone wears. A bit of preppy, a bit of on trend! I think that’s the best part of personal style, you can do it all or none of it if you want to!

So in case you haven’t noticed, tassels are really on trend for the spring and summer! Although in Dallas, both of those seasons kind of run together because it’s already in the 80s everyday, but nonetheless tassels are popular for the foreseeable future! I’m a style blogger who prefers classic styles to trendy fashions, however even I can get on board with the tassel trend.

One thing I always like to keep in mind when shopping for trendy items is the price and how much use I’ll get out of it. Seeing as how tassels may not be in style next year, I’m keeping my “tassel shopping budget” low and dropping into stores like Forever21 and Target to find a few seasonal favorites! Everything you see here is under $50!

My most recent find is that adorable pink tassel bikini I featured above! Seriously, oh my goodness it’s adorable. The bottoms have tassels the tie on the hips and the top has tassels that tie in the back. The best part is, I found it on clearance too! Browse through some of the links above and leave me a comment with your favorite tasseled item!

This dress is so comfortable and so easy to style. I found those adorable tassel earrings on sale and decided to wear them with the dress and the rest of the outfit just kinda came together. Gotta admit that tying my chambray shirt around my waist was a total gamble on looking cute in 90’s era styles but I think I pulled it off! Grab a few of these dresses while they’re still in stock and on sale! (Link here). Comment below with your go-to spring styles!

Splurge vs. Save Spring Style

spring fashion trends

When February turns into March, I officially start getting excited for spring! In Dallas, spring temperatures greet us a little earlier than in the rest of the United States, and luckily the spring fashion starts earlier as well. Around this time every year I start hunting down great pieces to add to my spring wardrobe and sharing my finds with you. One thing I’m pretty good at is determining whether or not something is worth splurging on and that’s what this post is about!

Is it a trendy or timeless wardrobe edition?

People have their own unique sense of style and what looks good on them. For me, I prefer to wear the preppy classics that I know will work for me years after I purchase it. In this case, it’s worth splurging if I’ll love it forever. Trendy items tend to come and go so I’m much less likely to splurge on seasonal trends because I know it isn’t the best investment for me. If you live for trends, then by all means splurge a little. If not, save your money!

How often will you wear it?

Some spring accessories and styles popular this year I know I could get a lot of use from. But other pieces will only be worn or used a handful of times because they’re either uncomfortable (stiletto heels, anyone?) or they simply don’t coordinate nicely with much. Fashion must have function for it to be worth a high price.

Wear to buy
