Latest & Greatest

Hi Loves!

I've been quite busy writing for the website (, that linking all of the articles with pictures is getting to be a bit much. So instead- I'll just post the links for my last 4 articles rather than blog them all out.

Is that even a term? LOL

So here they are, I hope you enjoy them- because I really enjoyed writing them. I'm still working on ways to create more original fashionably latest blog posts.

And to any and all of my readers, be they a handful or plenty- thank you for continuing to read this page, thanks for your support, thanks for keeping me motivated to write.

Without further ado:
This one is one of my favorites thus far. I was contacted by UK spa company, Champneys, to do a review on some of their beauty products. I'm so thankful for that opportunity- so Champneys if you happen to read this...thank you!

Happy reading y'all!

5 Must-Have Layering Pieces

September 21st marked the first day of Fall. Hello pumpkin spice, goodbye pina colada! 

Festive drink flavors aside, what better way to kick off the season is there, than with some amazing layering pieces? I give you 5 must-have items of the season.

1. Long Sleeve Waffle Print (thermal) Shirt

Perfect For: Layering underneath a short sleeve shirt, button up, sweatshirt or jacket. Bonus feature: it's fashionable and keeps you warm.

2. V-Neck Boyfriend Cardigan 

Perfect For: Throwing over a fitted blouse or shirt, especially in the evenings when it's cooler. Also would look good paired with skinnies and boots for a comfortable look.

3. Eternity Scarf
Perfect For: Serves a dual purpose of accessorizing your outfit while at the same time keeping you warm. Stay away from pairing the scarf with a hood, you don't want all that bulk around your neck.

4. Zip Front Hoodie

Perfect For: Layering under or over a top. It can also be worn separately if you aren't in the mood for layering this piece. Hoodies come in handy if you can't stand messing up your hair with all the action of a pullover. 

5. Pullover Sweater

Perfect For: Any occasion. I am partial to v-neck pullovers, as layering shirts underneath looks more flattering with the neck line. If you want a sweater that goes with everything, try cream, black or grey. 

Layering isn't for just fall only. All pieces can be worn separately and during other seasons. The fun part about getting dressed this time of year though, is that you can take your entire wardrobe and create so many fun looks. Which looks are your favorite? 

Homecoming Dress Shopping

My Featured Article:
For most high schoolers, Homecoming is only a few weeks away. Which means ladies, if you haven’t found your dress by now (or guys, a tux or suit); you’re running out of time. 

But don’t go into panic mode just yet because as always, we here at The Teen Trends have got you covered. Whether it’s a floor length gown or a sexy sheath you’re dreaming of, the following sites and stores have got everything you’ll need.

Check out places like:
• (Yes, they carry more than just wedding dresses!)
•Or the formal section at most department stores (For both girls and guys)

*A helpful tip- dress swapping might come in handy for those looking to save on the night’s expenses. Exchange, or simply borrow a dress from a friend who has already worn it to a previous dance. This will save you both time and money. Just don’t forget about the accessories like shoes, jewelry, ties, or clutches.

So get a jumpstart on planning, and beat the rush of others ordering corsages and boutonnieres, or making dinner reservations for the big dance.

Here’s to your school’s victory on the field and your victory in the fitting room. Happy Shopping!
