I was bored the other day and decided to follow the long running trend of the color coordinated book shelf. I have to say, I don't hate it. There are a few things I learned while organizing this: 1. I have a lot of white/cream colored books. 2. No matter how hard you try and despite the fact that all the books fit at one point, somehow you will end up with more books than the shelf can hold.
I am often guilty of following big, what I call, "pinterest-y" trends (also could be called "blogger" trends). Some of them being the color coordinated book shelf, ombré hair, leggings for days, bunting, tribal print, all white bedding, maxi skirts, and large white fur rugs. Although I defend myself on the last one. The rug currently in our living room was given to me in high school by my grandparents. I have loved it long before the trend (but whatever, who's keeping tabs?).
Some trends that I'm kind of totally over include chevron, crop tops, mustaches on everything, leather leggings, the cross print I see at F21 all the time, the ombré on clothes, distressed furniture, extra short cut off shorts, and giant flowers on baby girls heads. That last one has been going on for far longer than pinterest but I felt it needed to be addressed.
If you enjoy any of the trends from that last list, I don't mean to offend you. Do what you want and do it proudly! Unless it's the flower headband one. I mean, come on ladies. There are cuter ways to show that your baby is a girl.
