FOUR TRENDS To CONTINUE IN 2017

FashionVeronica ArrietaComment

I pretty much dropped a bomb on you yesterday with our move to Atlanta. I want to thank you for all your comments and sweet messages. Now this probably explains a little bit of where in the haayyy have I been. I took a little break over the holidays to spend time with family and have been busy with what feels like a million things since (but more on all that later!). 

I wanted to start off a new year post (yeah 26 days post new year but who's counting!) with a few of my favorite trends from 2016 that will stay in 2017. 

1. BLUSH

This color isn’t going anywhere anytime soon and I’m totally okay with it! Blush is one of my favorite colors, both as a color and to wear. I love how feminine and dainty the color blush makes you look. If my husband would let me, I would like a blush room in our future house...wishful thinking! 

2. BELL SLEVES

Bell sleeves are just so fun and totally took over in 2016. And lucky for us these 80's style sleeves aren't going anywhere anytime soon because statement sleeves are in full swing this season. Whether it’s a blouse, sweater or dress, you can rock a bell sleeve with anything. 

3. BLOCK HEELS

I love a block heel. Not only is it much easier to walk in than those skinny heels but I’ve found it’s a bit more comfortable as well. I love the chunk to the heel because it makes a chic statement without trying.

4. Wordy Tees

Tees with words or buzzwords are staying on clothes and accessories this year so make sure to stock up!

Cupcakes and Cashmere x Nordstrom

Veronica ArrietaComment

Emily Schuman founder and blogger of Cupcakes and Cashmere launched her fashion line at Nordstrom.com and Shopbop. She created 60 pieces that were inspired by California. This is her first round of three shipments, and I have to say that I'm loving these pieces. I love this military jacket, this classic striped top, sleeveless chiffon dressthis blue jumpsuit and this lace skirt. One of my favorite pieces is this pink coat, which I'm assuming is coming in the fall (fingers crossed).

Happy hump day and thanks for all the support with Four Threads so far! I've been on the prowl for a textured sweater for a few months now and stumbled into Gap while I was waiting for my iPhone to get fixed at Apple (but that's a hole other story!) and found this perfect moss-stich sweater. I immediately loved the color, different textures and how it can be worn both dressy and casual. I went for a more laid back look for church and brunch last Sunday.
