Trend Report: Plaid Takeover

The 90's grunge look has slowly been making its come back over the past couple years. I wouldn't go as far as the Marc Jacobs Perry Ellis grunge phase from 1992 but I sure have seen some serious takes from it. 
In my opinion, this generation have taken trends and made it there own. We aren't seeing one constant major trend anymore. Whether it's the 70's florals, the 60's mod stripes, or the 90's grunge, everyone is marching to their own drums and its more than acceptable!
Lately, I have been obsessing over the plaids. When I walk through work, I realize most every brand is as well. I wanted to share some different options from a variety of brands to help you add it to you closet!

Incorporating Leather Into Your Summer Closet

Even though I am yet to own any real leather in my closet, I am still loving my faux leather looks even during the summer. Yes, the typical summer trends say "go for the florals", "wear your pastels", I say bring the fall looks into the summer for a great twist of wardrobe! 

Considering I currently live in south Florida and it is hotter than hell here, I skip the leather jacket and go for the leather skirt or top. To tie in that bright summer feeling, break out those bright accessories. If you have read my blog, (I know it has been a while), you may know I like to mix in the price ranges and give you all sorts of options. So here is some looks you can shop for when looking for leather during these hot summer months:
