Trendy Inspiration

Psst... I have a secret...

I'm usually the last one on the bandwagon when it comes to new trends

Lol, seriously! I know that trends are constantly changing, so what's {in} today will be {out} next week, but it usually takes me ages to add a trend to my own style repertoire. I guess I need time for them to grow on me. And sometimes, the trends just NEVER suit my style.

So, I know that scales, chevron and the color combo yellow+gray have been around for awhile and are not really the latest and greatest, but I'm just starting to warm up to them. However, I picked up a fabulous new (to me) paper pad while on vacation this summer, and it was just the nudge I needed to try them out:

Cute, right? I'm glad I dabbled in these trends, even if they *are* on the way out, lol. Now if only I can get skinny jeans to grow on me... ;)

Have a great day, friends!
