Welcome to the first installment of what I like to call Trendy Tuesdays.  Each Tuesday we will look at a trend for the current season.  We can discuss the trend, whether or not we like it and how to get the look at different price points since we aren’t all millionaires (shocking, I know!!).

Our first trend is the “high low skirt.”  I first saw this while shopping a couple of weekends ago and since then have been noticing it more and more every where I look, which led me to the assumption that this must be what the cool kids call a trend.

I personally LOVE this look!  I think skirts are a comfortable, yet still classy way to spend a casual afternoon.  It’s just as easy to pull off as a pair of jeans yet the style factor has been upped 1000%.  Now having a swayback, I can’t always wear skirts easily.  If the length is good in the front, it is always shorter in the back and that can cause problems.  With this skirt, problem solved!!  This is definitely a trend I will be trying this season.

So where can we find this look at the different price points?  Well, if you are rolling in the dough and looking for new things to spend money on here is this skirt that I found on Net-A-Porter.  This is the Skaist-Taylor Lydon dipped-hem silk-voile skirt and it can be yours for only $670.  Steal right??

Ok, now for the rest of you out there that don’t have the spare funds to drop two car payments pocket change on a skirt, there are some cheaper options out there that are still just as cute…  FYI:  These are the ones that I will be shopping at.

Just as cute, right??  And at only $15.80 you can get an entire outfit and still have money left for a weekend getaway to equal the amount of the other skirt.

Is this a trend that you are going to get behind?  If so, which one do you prefer; to spend some extra money for higher quality or to save some money on a less expensive option?

Extra:

  • If there are any other trends you would like me to cover let me know.  Either leave me a comment or email me:  fashionistarookie@gmail.com.
  • I am loving knee high boots and am wanting a pair in my closet ASAP!  However, I have calves that makes boots a bit difficult to get on (thank you, ballet).  Anyone have any tips on where I could find some boots that might fit?
  • And finally.  I am in the process of putting together an exciting giveaway and will keep you updated once I have all the details in place.  Keep an eye out for that!

Hope you all have a great week!

Before I get into the topic I want to cover today, a couple of housekeeping items.

– I will be trying to blog on a regular schedule; however, I just started a new semester at school and am only 3 days in and already so overwhelmed.  I don’t have much time to sleep and am so busy I have to literally plan out when to shower or eat a quick meal.  It’s insane but I am hoping I get it all figured out soon!

– I have decided to continue to blog about fashions but I am also going to use this blog for everything else that comes up:  sporting events, music or movies, school drama and any other insignificant huge item that comes up in my life.  Hopefully you will stick around while this branches out into the new directions.

Now onto the reason for this post.  I think I have “discovered” my first fall trend for 2012.  Now stick with me, this may have already been discovered by you and everyone else months ago but I don’t usually notice these types of things (hence the “rookie” in my blog name).  The other day I requested a J. Crew catalog.  I haven’t looked through one of their catalogs before and am typically not the “prepster” type of person but I had heard some great things about them and lately had been seeing other postings and liking what I saw.

Well, I got the catalog yesterday and I am in LOVE!  I think I could easily add a little prep to my wardrobe.  Pretty sure I would like one of everything.  Anyone reading this that wants to send items my way, I will accept with open arms 🙂  This catalog has 71 pages and of those 71, 14 of the pages feature some type of polka dot item.  I don’t usually do the polka dot look but I am liking the way J. Crew does it and may just have to invest in a few dotted pieces.

A couple other trends that I noticed throughout the catalog were stripes and bright primary colors (think oranges, reds, blues, greens and yellows).  Overall it looks like the fall looks are brighter and more fun than I have seen in the past.  Say goodbye to the dreary blah fall colors and hello to bright, polka dot fun!

Which fall trends are you most looking forward to?
