Today's Trends

While shopping last night, a friend asked me what my favorite trends are right now.
And I went completely blank.
I could not think of any current styles that I was loving.
That's a problem.
I love clothes, and fashion, and being trendy.
It was then that I realized I have been in somewhat of a rut lately.
Maybe because it is summertime, and extremely hot
(I'm really more of a fall/winter clothes person)
or maybe because I am working now and professional clothes are a whole new realm for me.
I don't know.
But I am still trying to work out being fashionable and professional at the same time.
After thinking about it a little longer, I realized that I do have some favorite trends right now.
*Keep in mind, these could very well only be trends to me.
1) Peplum
I love that it is professional, with an extra ounce of fancy. 

2) Ankle trousers
This is me in ankle pants and peplum, both from The Limited.
I didn't buy either of these items due to the price.
But I found black ankle pants at TJ Maxx for $15 the next day.
And I will be back for that top.
I can't stop thinking about it.

3) Wedges
Dress Barn
I am obsessed with wedges.
I own both of these and it is a struggle to not wear them every single day.

4) Two-tone shoes
Jessica Simpson

Ann Taylor
I don't have any two-tone shoes, but as soon as I find the right ones, 
I will be buying them up.

5) Bubble Necklaces
This necklace.
This color.
I love it.
Jewelry just helps me to feel less stiff while in professional clothes.

What trends are you loving right now?
Do you have certain pieces of clothing that are getting you through this terrible 
in-between period of changing summer to fall?
Let's all think thoughts of fall weather this weekend, 
and maybe it will get here faster.
