Fashion World, I have two words for ya ....

You want to know what has been irritating me about fashion lately?
No?
Well, I’m going to tell you anyway.

One day something is in and then the next day it's out. It’s like if you want to keep up you have to spend everything you have. Well, that doesn’t work for me because this chica does not have a money growing tree. Take the fabulous bubble necklace for instance. It was all the rage and now you are "so not in" if you are caught wearing it.

The problem is that I still adore my yellow and turquoise bubble necklace. And I refuse to have them sit in a corner talking about how sad they are because the fashion world decided they are out.

I don’t care what the fashion world says. If I still like it, I’m gonna wear it.

What would you like to tell the fashion world besides, screw you?

And because today is good ole Tuesday, I'll share what I'm wearing today.

{Tunic & Jeans: Old Navy - Necklace & Bracelet: Forever 21 - Boots: JCPenney - Bag: Macys}

What are you wearing today?

Right now? I'm wearing jeans, a fleece jacket, and my steel toe shoes. Oh the joys of "dressing up" for work, lol

Adrienne said...

The bubble necklace is OUT already? Yeesh... I never keep up. I buy what I like. I actually hated the bubble necklace at first. But now I'm obsessed and I want more :) I just got my first one a few weeks ago. And I will still wear it proudly :)

The fun thing about fashion is, it always makes it way back. Most cases, anyway.

You look super cute, btw! So comfy and chic!

Bubble necklaces should not go out of style... ever. They're a fun impact to an outfit! I'm wearing nothing special today... lol I'll share on Thursday. :)

Married...with a Pup said...

Oh no! I didn't know it was out already!! I agree...I'm still going to keep on wearing it. Chunky jewelry is still the craze, so I think it's still fashionable!

Georgina Castellucci said...

I HATE trends - so annoying to have to shelve a favorite that you spent quality money on :(

You look great Faith. I'm wearing a black dress and gorgeous blue cardigan with sparkly buttons xo

Jessica said...

I'm still a fan of bubble/statement necklaces! What am I wearing... gray pants, pink top, ivory cardigan... typical work clothes :)

love jenny xoxo said...

I hadn't heard that bubble necklaces wear out... but I hate that too. I say if you love it wear it! Most people will think it's still in, and if one chick just read vogue and thinks its out now then that can be her problem :)

{love jenny xoxo}

PS I think it looks great!

I just got my bubble necklace a month ago and I will NOT stop wearing it. I do not have style what so ever and the one that that I bought that was trendy, is no longer trendy? UGH! Whatever!

Mrs. Pancakes said...

Love the tunic...torquous might be your color lady! In wearing boring clothes today...not been feeling very fashion forward since the baby...baby weight blues...will make transition soon enough!

Kristen said...

I didn't know it was out either. I feel like I'm seeing statement necklaces EVERYWHERE. I still plan on wearing mine, and I was thinking about getting another! Though I refuse to pay full price for those. ;)

I am totally wearing my comfy pants and a t-shirt today. I'm staying home to enjoy my staycation before work AND it's storming. Perfection!!!!

ruthy ann said...

Scree trends. If u love it wear it! Me? I'll probably be in my pjs all day :)

Megan Brink said...

I personally love the bubble necklace. I didn't at first when they came out, and just ordered one a week ago! One that looks exactly like yours, same color and everything, to be exact. :)

You are fab, lady!

Mrs JK said...

You tellem. But you knw the one thing I like is that these things always come back. I've got pieces from 10years ago that I still rock from time to time.(Yea i still fit into my stuff from back then..lol)

I still wear what I like, in or not!

YeamieWaffles said...

I love your philosophy when it comes to fashion and not just dropping clothes every single time there's a change in trend. Funny how you wear anything that you like and don't follow trends yet you're the one who looks glamorous as you always do, great post Faith, I love your big "screw you," to the fashion industry.

Cece said...

That's the key. Just make sure you are buying it because you really like it and not just because it's on trend. Which it sounds like you did! I didn't know bubble necklaces were "out". I never even got a chance to buy one!!

Carlee said...

Amen! Wear what you like! I would rather a skinny, toothpick model not have a say in what I wear, because those clothes they're wearing will look nothing like that on me.

Also, I love your style. You make me miss regular (non-maternity) clothes...

Christina Marie Kellogg said...

Hang on to it Faith...it'll be back "in" next Spring! LOL

THE mom said...

I love that tunic!!!
Screw the "fashion world!" Wear that bubble necklace to your heart's content! I love how you style it with everything :-)

Carolyn said...

BAHAHAHAHA! SO TRUE! I look at my bubble necklace and think, I want to wear it, and then I go to put it on and feel so "not" cool. Dang it!

Nellie @ Brooklyn Active Mama said...

I had no clue. LOL you are keeping me up on the trends! I say rock it whenever you want to! Its still cute to me! (here I was thinking I need to get a few! LOL)

Instant Milk said...

Nikki said...

I just got my first bubble necklaces for Christmas and I am going to wear them whether they are in style or not. I still think they are cute :)

Eesh said...

Ummm the bauble necklace is out for realz? Wellllll here's another invitation to come on down to the Bahamas where we're a third world country & you can wear it for 2 more years because it just hasn't caught on as yet. *Le sigh....

I'm loving your outfit today! I've been at work where I'm pretty sure my outfit was all kinds of blah. Royal blue kimono sleeve top, black slacks & black heels <<< nothing special. I love your boots!!!!!

xx

McKenna Ryan said...

josie renee said...

The fashion world is what you make of it.. if you like it, I love it! You are always so cute.

I'm currently wearing sweats and a bathrobe and have been wearing that all day. So, so fashionable.

Meg {henninglove} said...

Katie said...

Jenna said...

You go, Faith!!!! I think you rock that bubble necklace still!

Pshhh to the Fashion World!

Speaking of which, I am also annoyed with the FW lately as apparently my beloved empire waist is out and that other waistline is in (the one that sits awkwardly between your boobs and stomach?)...so not a flattering look for me.

Whitney Cypert said...

Who told you they were out!? I haven't even worn mine yet! Uh oh! Oh well, you bet your butt I will still wear it. The fashion world is silly sometimes!

Life's a shoe said...

gorgeous necklace!

Pegster said...

Yeah take that fashion world. It looks good on you, keep wearing it.

I love your outfit today, it's a style I totally copied :).

PS - I love seeing your beautiful happy face, please don't crop it

Rod and Alex - aka: "Rolex" said...

I totally agree with you! if you like it, wear it! Plus, it's totally cute! :)

Ashley @TheCreamToMyCoffee said...

I'm with you, girl! Wear whatever you want! I have a bubble necklace, and like you, I realized it was "out." But I still like it - it amps up every outfit! Thanks for the inspiration to keep wearing it!

Jin said...

bubble necklaces were totally "in" all summer...it's weird how they are so out of style now. Who makes all of these fashion rules any way? I say wear what you like. life ia too short and money doesn't grow on trees.

What I Did Today said...

I never follow the fashion world. In the past I'd go with mostly classic and a splash of trendy. Now I just grab whatever I can find that's clean!

Shannon said...

I love bubble necklaces... I definitely think they are still in style. At least, I will be wearing mine. :)

Life with J and J said...

Very cute outfit. I do have to agree with you on changing fashion. But like a previous poster said, it is cyclical. It'll come back again so hold on to it.

LWLH said...

My fashion sense doesn't allow me to keep up with trends, by the time I hear about them, their already on their way out.

Elle to Elle said...

Sooo.....I need that purse/bag. And, girl wear the bubble necklace. Its too cute!

Kasey Lynne said...

GIRL, if you love it AND it looks good, wear it! And wear it DANG GOOD!

LOVE that bag from Macy's!
