Hello everyone! This week on our favorite discoveries post, the focus is more on fashion and style. The wonderful thing about many of these links is regardless of how into these two subjects you are or not, you can still enjoy taking a look at them.
The first link is for both the girls who love getting dressed up and the ones who don't. At collegefashion.net you can read the 25 reasons why you should dress up every day. For those who already enjoy dressing up, the article will remind you of all of the reasons why you choose to do so, and for those who don't enjoy dressing up quite so much the article offers several reasons to inspire you to dress up a bit more even if it's not every day.
This next link is about one of my favorite trends, the long skirt trend. You can read this NY Times article about the long skirt trend that has been slowly gaining popularity. I am very much a fan of this trend because there is just a limit to how short a skirt can go. The article projects that the trend will last several years, so now would be the perfect time for you to get in on the trend if you wish. And the wonderful part about the trend is that if you're more modest you can continue wearing the longer skirts after it ends, or if you aren't, then you can always shorten your skirts later.
Next, if you enjoy fashion and beauty but you like keeping it to the basics, here's another article by collegefashion.net about the 5 nail polish colors every girl should own. 5 is a number that's easily manageable, and your vanity won't be cluttered with too many bottles of unused nail polish, but you'll still have enough colors to switch up to match your looks.
To make the choosing of nail polish even simpler, you should stop by All Lacquered Up. At this incredibly useful blog, you can look at tons of swatches from different nail polish collections that the blogger has tried out for herself. If you are looking to pick your 5 nail polish colors as advised by the article directly above, this is a wonderful resource to make sure that you get exactly the 5 that you want.
Finally, I don't know about you, but I'm one of those people who never seems to wear jewelry. I own one or two pieces of nice jewelry that I really like and that I wear frequently whenever I remember actually remember to wear jewelry. However, I recently stumbled on a post at The World According to Marilyn in which Marilyn talks about her obsession with jewelry and shows a few pieces of affordable jewelry that you can buy. If you, too, are a jewelry lover, then you should check out this article. If you're more like me, then you should still check it out as well for some inspiration on maybe just maybe adding another piece of jewelery to your collection.
Thanks you for stopping by this week. I hope that you have a lovely weekend!
