FBFF: Top 5 Summer Trends

This week's FBFF questions also relate to this month's FTF event: trends. I also wrote about 5 beauty trends I'm loving for LOVE TWENTY. Maybe I need to stop writing so many posts about trends... Well, let's get on with it!

1. Bold Lips- As I mentioned in my Full Time Fabulous post. Just like I like bright nails, I'm now into really bright lipstick.


2. LWD- Little White Dress. There is something so chic about a LWD and you can punch it up with colorful accessories.

3. Wedges- I adore wearing a nude wedge in the summer especially with some texture heels like cork. How adorable are these from Zappos?

4. Straw hats- I'm still rocking my fedora. But the big floppy hats are pretty awesome too. Michelle Williams and I are fashion twins (lol!).

5. Mannequin nails- I'm quite enjoying wear nude colors on my nails (I know, shocking). I especially like it on my toes because supposedly it elongates your legs. It looks super chic!

What are some trends that you are looking forward to this summer?

Don't forget to stop by ModlyChic to read all the other FBFF answers this week!


  1. wow, so interesting about the nude manis/pedis. first I've seen of that! all about the wedges, though. have like 6 pairs collected from the past two years. :) TGIF!

  2. Love your choices!!! Do really like bold lips but only ever feel like they really look ok on me if I'm ever really tanned - and that rarely happens!! Got a straw fedora for my birthday and now I hate to be without it!! Wedges are such a great summer staple, don't you think? Great post!!

  3. So into a bold lip for the summer too! Wedges are the best, I'm so glad they are a trend with staying power!

  4. I love the white dresses for summer!

  5. I haven't found a perfect nude polish yet, but I totally feel ya! It looks so chic!

  6. Yes, loving the wedges and little white dress right along with you! My fav lwd is a bit sheer, though, so I'm mostly using it for the beach and pool. Wish I could find something fairly casual but not so sheer.

    I'll have to try the bold lip color, also. Fun ideas!

  7. @Alyson- oh wow that's a lot!

    @Emily- I don't think you have to be tan, I'm super pale and I think I pull it off :) Go for it!

    @Jenny- yes me too since I can't stop buying them :p

    @Audrey- Aren't they lovely? :)

    @Kirstin Marie- I like OPI's "Samoan Sand"

    @Amy- Hmm maybe go for more of a cotton blend dress? I definitely feel ya on the sheer part though :x

  8. I didn't know wedges were the trend... I recently bought a pair. Now I feel trendy.

  9. :) I see what you mean! I never knew about the mannequin nails! SO COOL!

    Let me know when you'll wear your pleated top from h&m!

  10. I loveeee bold lips! I finally found my YSL Le Orange lip stick! I also love the LWD but I can never keep anything white clean for long. I do have a white dress that I bought a few summers ago that I should break out!

    Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog. I'm on the hunt for the perfect round sunglasses myself but I have found some reasonable price ones on Topshops website (they are about $40 each) and Urban Outfitters have some good ones that are much cheaper. But I do love the Ray Ban ones http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/productdetail.jsp?itemdescription=true&itemCount=80&startValue=1&selectedProductColor=&sortby=&id=20414074&parentid=W_ACC_SUNGLASSES&sortProperties=+subCategoryPosition,+product.marketingPriority&navCount=25&navAction=poppushpush&color=&pushId=W_ACC_SUNGLASSES&popId=WOMENS_ACCESSORIES&prepushId=&selectedProductSize=

  11. @Colleen- haha you are so trendy ;)

    @Kathrine- I wore it in my DIY rag curls post if you wanna look it up ;)

    @Heather- oOh love those Ray Ban ones!

  12. I love hats too! And really NEED to buy some bright/bold new lipstick now... or glosses. -xo

  13. Visiting from FBFF...
    These are great. I love that lipstick. I also bought that color and now just have to be brave enough to wear it!

  14. the first 4 trends are something i've definly embraced but manequin nails.... i dont know... they r just too freaky for my tastes.

  15. I love all of these too especially bold lips and wedge heels as they are so easy to walk in.

  16. Loving bold lips & white dresses! I been eyeing this I <3 ronson white dress at JCPenny's for awhile that I really need to get. Great picks!

  17. Bold lips ftw. Only in reds and purples though- pinks and oranges look stupid on me!

  18. Great list, I vote yay for all:) Thanks for the tip on nude nails, and for commenting on my blog!

  19. Excellent pics! I love them all..I want to try the nude nails!!

  20. I've been purchasing lots of bold colored lipsticks lately so I guess this season is the perfect time to try them out. And I wanna try the mannequin nails sooo bad but mine are long enough and I'm NOT putting on press ons!
