I love clothes. If you could see my closet, you would totally know this. When I worked at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia, I never wore the same thing twice. I had enough clothes to wear a different outfit every day of the year. I was known for this and people would be waiting to see what I would wear next. Of course I was a LOT thinner then. Since my thyroid went wild and I gained 35 pounds in one year, I had to give away a lot of my clothes. But I'm still a clothes horse. And I like seeing what is new and putting what I own together to make it up to date.
I went on a website (glamour.com) this morning to see what is the hot fashion trends for this summer. Summer is just beginning so why not. Here's what I found.
Bright and Bold Stripes
I can do this with things I already have. I don't have a lot of stripes, but I'm sure I can find something.
I have nothing gingham and although I've worn it in the past, I'm not sure if I would invest in it at this point. I have a feeling this is a one season trend.
Uh... no! Make me look like a beached whale why don't ya!
Sequins and Sparkle
OK. I like sparkle. I have some sparkly shirts. Don't know if I want to do a whole dress with it, though.
I sort of like this. I would wear patchwork. I have in the past. I think I'm going to look around for a shirt or dress with this.
I like ruffles in moderation. Maybe a collar or at the bottom of a skirt. Too many ruffles are not good for me. But... I do have a couple of ruffled tops and skirts. I'll have to pull them out.
I have a couple of summer tops that are off the shoulder. But I always wear a tank top under them. Too much skin is too much!
Yes! I love denim. And especially done-up denim. Bring on those jeans.
Uh... no thanks. In my opinion pajamas are for the bedroom, not the sidewalk.
No thanks. They aren't even comfortable!
OK. This is kind of cute.
Nope. Too see through.
Paper Bag Waist
Cute, but not sure if I could pull it off. Maybe I'll go into a store and try a pair on.
Well that's it. Now I have to go through my closet again and plan what I'm going to wear this season.
