Trend Test Drive- Houndstooth Print

Let's chat trendy clothes.  They come, they go, and you end up with a closet full of pieces you only wore a few times. Every season, there are a few must-buy-trends, that tend to feel dated within a few months. As I have gotten older, I have learned not to shell out my hard earned cash for fleeting moments in style. For me, its hard to keep up with these fast moving trends, and I noticed it prevented me from creating my own point of view in how I dress. So now, I pay attention to magazines and street style and runways- but only try out styles that feel authentic to my fashion vocabulary. I feel like my style doesn't seem like I try so hard, when I stopped trying dress like a trendy LA girl. 
When it comes to working a trend, I LOVE prints. Example would be this summer trend of gingham. I learned by finding pieces that seemed classic + flattering to me, they still felt current when made in a coveted print. Currently, I adore black + white plaid, which is having a starring moment currently in fashion. This print clearly pulls inspiration from the past. I love that you can find this print in department stores + vintage shops. I scored this darling houndstooth print skirt at the boutique Sister in Long Beach. This look feels a little 90's, a little London punky. The big bow on the side as a touch of girly personality for a more tomboy look. I paired the skirt with this fuzzy boxy sweater, chunky boots and (STILL MY FAVORITE) fishermen's hat. Have you tried this plaid trend out? I promise this won't be the last of it you see on me.
