It’s been over a year since we first visited the fact that we might just be taking note from Kelly Kapowski and showing off our shoulders once again. Sometimes it takes a trend a while to get to fringe or flare status, and I think we’ve finally gotten there with the off-the-shoulder look. Don’t you?
We all know that Athleisure has been trending for quite some time now and whether you like it or not, it looks like it’s here to stay (at least for now). However, there’s been a specific trend — a sub-trend if you will — within this category, that I’m actually quite proud of (regardless of the fact that I have zero interest in sports). Are fashion folks now Bulls fans or are they just making a statement? Let’s find out.
It’s getting to be about that time again — summer vacation season. Although I think us Chicagoans might work a little differently (as we don’t suffer all winter just to LEAVE for the summer), I’m sure we’ll all get away at least for the weekend at some point over the next three months. So with that said, I got a few tips from this UNICEF lunch I attended yesterday at my safe place (AKA Barneys New York, Chicago) that I think we should discuss. Ready, [jet]set, GO!
I don’t know about you but I’m growing quite sick of these grey rainy days. But when it’s spring time in Chicago, what do you expect? Actual spring weather with flowers blooming and people frolicking in the streets? We get that maybe a few days each spring…the lucky 48 hours of 70s and sun we might get to experience. But right now I’m staring out my window, wondering what I’m going to sacrifice today (meaning allow to get wet)…which inspired me to write today’s post.
As much as I like to think I don’t spend my days aimlessly scrolling through Instagram, because I really don’t, every once in a while I’ll do some Insta-exploring (although I always seem to end up on someone’s account who has 1+ million followers, but they have no bio and I’ve never even heard of them). I digress, though. This is not about Instagram stalking. It’s about what one may discover is a trend when one wasn’t aware this was a trend in the first place (at least according to every trend report that comes out twice a year…sometimes four times if we’re really feeling Pre-Fall or Resort). It’s time to get all buttoned up, my friends. It’s going to be a wild ride.
