2012/2013 Trend Recap Pt. 13 || Tweed

The tweed trend took the world by storm this past fall and I was sold immediately. I actually purchased a few every single piece of tweed I saw. I probably own a million tweed blazers at this point. The one thing I really, really wanted was this beautiful tweed skirt from Target but I never managed to find it in my size. That's probably because by the time I saw it, it was already on clearance. I'm not joking when I say I scoured about 10 Goodwill's in search of it, too. Alas, it will from now on be known as the one that got away. I tried to find similar, too, but failed there as well. It's too bad, really. I had plans for that skirt...

Here are some of my favorite ways I've seen tweed styled...

Mossimo skirt | Thrifted Rampage heels | h&m tee | eBay necklace

These heels are my favesss!! I thrifted them from a local Goodwill store and wear them all the time during the summer months. They're a low wedge heel with glitter and they are so stinkin' comfortable! Well, these outfit photos are from last month when I broke the toe strap off on the left shoe! Bummer!!! I immediately brought them to a shoe repair store down the street from my work and tada! Fixed! Hallelujah.

2012/2013 Trend Recap Pt. 12 || Trousers

Trousers were a big trend this past winter/spring and I was hesitant at first. With my huge, child bearing hips and long legs dress pants of any sort are typically a battle for me. Target came out with these awesome akle length cigarette trousers and I fell IN LOVE! They fit me fabulously and thank goodness I realized this right as they went on sale! I, of course, nabbed a few pairs and wear them all the time!

Here are some of my favorite ways I've seen this trend worn...

Clearly I'm a huge fan of the printed ones. Those floral ones - holy. smokes. They practically take my breath away. I love a good floral print!

Here are two of my favorite pairs I bought from Target...

Can you believe it's already July and my favorite holiday ever - Independence Day! - has already come & gone? It's insane. It felt like Summer was taking forever to get here and now it's just flying by! Slow down, Father Time!

How could these looks not inspire you?? They're so stinkin' cute!! I love the put together, yet relaxed look about all of these outfits. And you can't go wrong with a fabulous maxi!

LC by Lauren Conrad top | Vera Wang Skirt | Cosmopolitan heels | Charlotte Russe necklace

I really wish I would have gotten a picture of the back of this top! It's crocheted and loosely buttons down the middle. SO cute! It's a little short for my taste, though, which is why I paired it with a skirt. I wouldn't typically have worn red & green together, but this green isn't so green that it worked! I just had to have this skirt when I saw it on a Kohls clearance rack. It's so poofy & dramatic! You'll probably be seeing a lot more of this in the near future!

2012/2013 Trend Recap Pt. 11 | Neon

Neon is huge lately but is one of the few trends I haven't tried on for size, yet. Well I suppose I've tried it a liiiittle bit. I do have two summer dresses with slightly neon-ish stripes but I'd hardly group it in with this trend. Part of me has wanted to try full on neon, but it just doesn't feel very me - You know? I'm not sure yet if it's a trend that's going to stick around and I don't want to buy into something I'll feel ridiculous wearing a few months from now (like so many other things in my closet). Plus, to me if feels more spring/summer and I happen to live in the Midwest where Spring & Summer only stick around briefly. It seems impractical. However, I was eyeing a neon pink tank on sale at Target for $4.88 the other day. I might just have to try this trend out at that price!

Here are some of my favorite neon looks...

After staring at all of these beautiful neon looks now I think I might mosey on over run to my nearest Target.

How do you wear neon?
