PALM TREE LIFE is the BEST LIFE! aka my FAV TREND EVER

Hello you!

How was the weekend? I was in ATL for a wedding (which I'll write about) and it was GORGEOUS. Like, classy, elegant, and FUN. There was a Beyonce drag queen surprise, and it was RIGHT. More on that later, but what did you do? Anything fun?

Super excited about this one, because it’s one of my favorite trends ever. I liked this trend before it was a trend. Yep, I'm saying it. 

You know when you’re on the fence about buying something but you end up just going for it? You’re like whatever, I hope I wear this.

This dress I'm wearing here was one of those things.

I got it in Toronto, and I didn’t know I would wear it as much as I do.

I WEAR IT ALL THE TIME.

It’s the go-to, to look super street, edgy and badass. The green palm print is everything, and the jersey lining at the color – DOPE.

Palm print is so in right now. It’s all over magazines and in stores right now, and the saturated green looks good on about anyone. Whether it's the palm print in house decor or on some PANTS it's super in.

^^ little bun head LOL.

This print makes me feel so tropical and like it's okay to wear bold prints and colors again but still be cool. NYC scarred me for PATTERNS. 

Plus, the jersey lining on the collar of this is urban dime piece, and I love love it.

So, bad news. I know this is lame to be like 'oh it's sold out but check out this SUPER CUTE OUTFIT I LOVE. But that's what's happening today. I seriously cannot find it anywhere online. I've been looking!! It's from Lush, so if you find it. Please share!

...if you stop hating me please continue.

But, alas, even cutter stuff that has the PALM PRINT for your house, to wear, for your phone...whatever! All of it linked for you below!

How are you incorporating spring trends right now?  Any favorites here?

This week I am doing lots of work for future posts on the blog, feeling happy about my progress! Also just reviewed some of my old posts - and OH MY GOODNESS, how Hundred Blog has evolved. My old posts were seriously written like Haiku's. No beginning, middle or end.

Anyway, glad you're a part of the evolution!

How’s life for you?

Would love to know!

The FLORAL trend: Not boring or stuffy this time!

Hello you! My favorite person!

Little fashion post for today. This dress, I love. I love it! I want to share it with youuuu because it's soft and flow-y, and AFFORDABLE.

Because floral, when done right, is like the SEXIEST.

But if it’s done poorly, you’re like Easter threw up all over a Lilly Pulitzer picnic blanket. It’s suffocating me.

I would never think that I’d love floral so much, because I'm usually into streetwear, or anything with a bit of an edge.

But a moody floral, is badass.

It’s the big floral print, mixed with dope (often neutral) colors that really compliments an edgy look. Throwing in the femininity of flowers.

This dress I'm wearing here is the shit. It's by dee elle AND it’s $48 dollars from Nordstrom. You can wear it basically anywhere, and I love that it covers the arms. Just super flattering for any shape basically the way it’s cut.

Plus, this pattern is a bit rocker chic, no?

Let's get to it. 



 

Also this is all under $100 dollars. NOTICE A TREND? I love things that are quality - for CHEAP.

Like this dress, which I love because it's bell sleeves and fits in ALL the right places.

Plus the floral pattern here is more edgy and good for day and night.

Keep me posted which ones you love, or which ones you buy! I love this look for an easy date night, or casual day out. It’s a bit dressy, but not too much. Plus, loose and flow-y.

My favorite words.

Now off to workout! Feeling like I need a good sweat, and like DETOX. How’s your week? Feeling this look?

Love ya,

Krista

Love in a major way: Fringe bags for Summer!

Hello hello! So glad you’re here!

So just in the swing of the week now, and it's MAY GRAY in Los Angeles. A month where it's basically just overcast all the time, and it's weirdly affected me. Just a bit more sluggish and unmotivated than usual, but what can ya do.

It also could be coming off a weekend in AUSTIN with my best friends, and I am exhausted. We had the BEST TIME on Lake Travis, exploring the city and just truly cherishing our time together. More on that later!

But a post on my bag, that I was rocking during the trip. I wrote about fringe and the fringe trend a few months ago, but I mean, I’m glad it’s stuck around! It’s the boho gypsy, long wavy hair undone, babe look that I just adore.

Wearing fringe on your purse or bag is the best way to do it. When you see the movement in the bag on fringe, it’s my favorite. Detail that you can play up or done, or not wear if you don’t want to.

Plus, if you’re doing a plain outfit this is the perfect pick me up.

I got my fringe bag in black suede from a boutique in Vietnam and it rules. I can't link the exact one, since it was from a tiny shop in Hoi Ann and I mean I don't know if they even had a credit card swiper. Plus, it rules, but I'm going to be real that there's cuter ones out there. LOL.

It’s soft, carries just enough and I love the fringe look. I love suede, no matter how impractical it is. In L.A. you can wear ANYTHING and never fear rain, sleet or snow.

There are SO MANY good fringe bags, I just have to pick up another I think!

P.S. Rebecca Minkoff is killing it right now.


Shop the look:


What’s your favorite? Any of these you love? It’s the perfect time to shop a new fringe trend you know?

Again for music festivals you must frolic with your fringe bag! How adorbs for photos!? :) 

Always glad you read! Keep me posted with you! I need to write my Austin weekending post ya know?!

Xoxo
