Trends at 30: Am I Still Cool?

IRO - Ralene Dress - Shopbop - Netaporter

Late last night when I was editing these photos I thought to myself…

Am I doing too much here?

Does a very LOUD 30-year-old lady need to be wearing a massive Pharell hat, a lace-up dress WITH bell sleeves AND OTK boots?

This outfit is a one man trend report for 2016. But, lucky for me a lot of these trends can easily carry over to 2017 – just not ALL AT ONCE.

I think we are going to see less of the lace-up details in 2017, but the statement sleeves are here to stay and I’m good with that. I can’t get enough of the bell sleeve trend – it just can make eating very tricky!

OTK boots are here to stay. I don’t care what anyone says. I LOVE these boots (and they are now on MEGA sale). The stacked heel and rich redwood color make these a timeless piece in my closet and I will be rocking these bad boys into 2017.

But this post has forced me to ask myself:

Am I still cool?

Can I still pull off all of these trends?

…or maybe just not ALL at once.
