I have to say, this has been a pretty great week thus far! I’ve thrown away about five garbage bags of junk in my room, I’ve started painting again, I took a yoga class that I absolutely loved (I can’t tell you how sore I am though), oh and one other small little thing: We’ve officially surpassed 1000 views of Loans and Louboutins!!! I can’t tell you how much that means to me. Instead of getting all sappy and telling you all how awesome you are (which you most definitely are!) I’m sharing some things that are inspiring me right now, in the hopes that something will grab your attention and give you an equally awesome week.
1) Iggy Azaela- I’ve been up all night, tryna get that rich I’ve been work work work work werkin on my shitttttt. If you haven’t gotten on the Iggy Iggs bandwagon yet, it is time. I’ve been listening to her song ‘Work’ on repeat all week and I cannot get enough of it. This chick is fierce as hell and I’m totally obsessed with her right now. Oh and also, this Aussie has one helluva bod. See for yourself in the ‘Work’ music video.
2) Patterned Pants- Okay, I’ve gotta be honest here; when this trend first emerged I was not into it at all. I mean, at 5’3 I’m not exactly looking for a pair of pants that’s gonna make me look as small as Tyrion on Game of Thrones (if you watch GOT just know that I’m still not over what happened last week). Anyway, the trend definitely grew on me (pun intended) and I realized that even at 5’3 I can still rock this look. I have my eyes set on this pair from Forever 21 with the stripe and rose pattern.
3) Kimono- I am allllll about this look right now. If you ask me, the kimono is one of the coolest trends at the moment. I love how its so girly, and airy and looks great on everyone! I particularly love this one from LuLu’s, and I think the kimono would make for an awesome coverup during the summer.
4) Alex and Ani- Obviously I don’t have to tell you how popular and adorable these bracelets are, but, I recently picked up a few to make my arm candy have a little bit of a summer theme. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I bought the seashell and seahorse bracelets in gold (If you don’t follow me on Instagram there’s a link on the main page *hint hint* *wink wink*). Right now I’m really into mixing my gold and silver bracelets for a fun and unexpected look. All I need now is the starfish bracelet and the mermaid bracelet because what girl doesn’t wanna be a mermaid, ammmi right?
*Note, a portion of the proceeds from the Arms of Strength Charm bangle go towards Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation, a Rhode Island non-profit that works to spread awareness, education, resources, and hope in the fight against breast cancer. Cute bracelet and a great cause? It’s a win, win for everyone. Let’s support all those badass women battling breast cancer! I know I’ll be picking mine up this week.*
So that’s what’s on my mind this week my friends! What are you obsessed with right now? Any rising music stars you can’t get enough of? Is there a fashion trend that rocks your socks? Let me know!
