My Favorite Details…

Happy Tuesday people!

I got to spend the weekend in Birmingham, Alabama with a group of my girl friends {my “teacher friends” as my kids call them} doing a little shopping and a little spa-ing. It was such a fun weekend, spent laughing and talking pretty much non-stop! We stayed at Ross Bridge Golf Resort and Spa, and it was beautiful!! The course, the hotel, the views! If you are ever headed to Birmingham, I highly recommend it!

This is pretty much what we looked like the entire time. ;-D

While we were out shopping, I was chatting with one of my girlfriends about my “to dies” when it comes to shopping…ya know, the kinds of details you seem to always LOVE when it comes to clothing. For me, my loves are: raglan stitching at the sleeve, tie straps, ruffles, and high waisted pants. I have loved all 4 since high school, whether they were instyle or not.

This sweatshirt I found, has raglan sleeves, a puffy sleeve {which kind of feels ‘ruffly’}, is a great grey color, AND IS LESS THAN $40! DEAD. oh…and it comes in blush. omg.

Going to share a little about why I love each, and some of the things I have or am coveting in each category.

1. Raglan sleeves- I have super sloping shoulders, so sometimes the stitching on the shoulder of regular tops hits me in the wrong spot. Raglan always fits so well! I love when I find things with that stitching. Here are a couple cute raglan tops and dresses:

2. Tie Straps- Kind of like raglan sleeves, I have a hard time with spaghetti straps {ahem sloping shoulders}, but when they can tie and I can make them tighter, they have a better chance of staying up…plus I freaking love bows and think it adds some girly-ness to tops and dresses! Here are some cute tie options I’ve come across:

3. Ruffles-  I have loved ruffles and bows and peplum cuts for as long as I can remember, but since they are so “in” right now, they are so easy to find!! I love a girly element added to a top! Here are some of my faves online right now:

4. High waistlines- Another thing that has come back in style in the last couple years are higher waistlines! I am super high waisted and love what a highwasited pant does for my legs! I also love a super wide leg pant…think Rachel Zoe. I die, right?! Here are some pants {from all walks of life} that have a high waist I love:

Alright friends! Those are my LOVES/FAVES/OBSESSIONS when it comes to details and clothing. Every so often you come across a piece that has more than one of the above and theeennnn I get really freaking excited! Like the sweatshirt linked at the top of this post. Which is extra perfect because it also fits in seamlessly with my #parklife lifestyle.

What are your fashion faves?
