For me 2011 was a complete roller coaster for fashion trends. I tried a lot of different things, not all of which panned out (long boho skirts so not for me) so I want to make a list of trends I picked up throughout 2011 that I’ll continue to do in 2012.
This past summer I dressed very bohemian/hippy chic and it’s so comfy and awesome and I’d love to get more pieces but I need to come to terms with the fact that I look horrid in Maxi dresses and skirts either need to be touching your knee or touching the floor, not the awkward shin length that some of my skirts are. Unfortunately my summer style does a complete 180 when winter rolls around, I wear jeans, and boots with heals, sweaters and pea coats … not exactly boho or hippy chic … but I like it and I haven’t found many dresses I can wear in the winter, not that they don’t exist they just dont’ exisist in my wardrobe at the moment.
Let’s get on with it shall we…
Hand Knit accessories! I made this Cowl for myself and wear it ALL the time! It’s so cozy and warm, I love it! I also don’t think it will go out of style 😛
Ahh, boots … I got these from Charlotte Ruse when they were doing the buy 2 get the second pair for $15 deal. They rock, and are my everyday footwear this winter. Like I said earlier my winter style totally clashes with my summer style. But I just can’t help but love these boots! and for $15 … really .. could you not love them?
My summer sandals are not so “dressy”.
I have these in both black (as shown) and in gold. I love them, I don’t own regular flip flops because they give me blisters and for whatever reason these don’t bother my feet. So these are my summer shoes. along with my high top converse which I wear with denim shorts (which gets me a lot of funny looks for some reason)
My favorite summer dress! From AE, I have this in white, and was very tempted to buy the other colors as well. It could be a tad longer as i’m not super lady like and have a tendency to hike through the woods to get to a swimming hole … but oh well.
My hair has grown a bit since this picture was taken when I was learning how to french braid a few months ago but I still do my hair like this, I love the side french braid. I have side swept bangs so it’s nice to have them tucked away once in a while.
Last but certainly not least, nail polish. I experimented a lot in 2011, and will continue to do so in 2012. I’ve gotten into a great habit of not letting my nails get too chipped and old looking before I re-paint, I’ve rediscovered the joys in giving myself a mani-pedi ❤ So light/neutral colors in the summer, and dark colors in the winter ❤
