Pants and I have a love hate relationship, and part of the time this relationship turns into a hate hate relationship. So when I find a pair of pants that fit and I actually like, I feel the need to share it with the world. Over break I received a pair of BCBGeneration trousers from my mom, that she purchased from TJ Maxx, and they fit perfectly! They are similar to a pair of jeans, but just a bit more fashionable and that to me is already perfect. What makes them a bit more fashionable is the fact that they are higher waisted and loose fitting, which ends up flattering my body type a whole lot better than an average pair of jeans. I will be able to pair these trousers with all kinds of shirts, which means I will get quite a bit of wear out of them. All in all I would say this was a good purchase on my mom’s part. So a big thanks to my mom!
I was worried the peplum trend was on its way out, but luckily Stella McCartney and a few others kept it going, which is part of the reason I purchased this green one at Forever 21. That and I forgot to bring green clothes home for St. Patrick’s Day, which may sound stupid to some, but when you are as involved in the Irish community as my family is, green is a must. I love the fit of this peplum because it comes in perfectly at my waist then flairs out for a bit of added volume. Along with the great fit is a great color that is perfect for spring and can be easily taken into summer. While I have not paired it with a belt like it is shown in the picture, I am sure that I will try it eventually. Plus this top can be worn with my high waisted pants too! While many think that a peplum doesn’t flatter mot body types, I think everyone should at least try one on because you may be surprised.
Also from Forever 21 is this navy blue tank top with a ruffle around the neck, which I absolutely love. It has such a feminine look about it, and I love the adding more feminine touches to my wardrobe for spring. It also is very flowy, which I quite enjoy because I am not the biggest fan of skin tight clothing. Whether I pair it with a skirt or pants, it is going to look cute either way. Plus I can easily throw a cardigan on and it will still look adorable. It was also made in a bubblegum pink, but I surprisingly liked the navy blue a lot better.
My wardrobe would never be complete without a whitebutton down, which is why I purchased a new one immediately after discovering my other one was wearing out. The ones at Forever 21 have a very nice fit, which is why I have bought the same one multiple times. I think that everyone should have a classic white button down in their wardrobe, and I highly recommend the one at Forever 21. I also purchased a flowy floral button down at TJ Maxx that ties at the bottom, which is a very cute detail. However, I have yet to take a picture of it, so you can just imagine it.
The last thing I purchased at Forever 21 was a pair of cat eye sunglasses. Ever since I saw Kourtney Kardashian wearing a pair, I knew I wanted a pair just like them. I love sunglasses, but I am very picky about the way they fit and how they look on my face. This pair was only $5.80, and fit very well. If anyone wants to find a pair of sunglasses, you might want to try Forever 21.
Like I said, I was in need of a serious shopping trip, which is exactly what I did over spring break. Hopefully if you were in need of a few ideas for spring that my haul helped you out. Happy spring shopping!
