fall 2018 trendspotting

SHOPChloe Gordon

Let’s talk trend spotting. This whole summer I’ve been working in a retail store surrounded by high end fashion. It’s so inspiring getting to help people find styles and trends that they really love. But, let me tell you a secret, it’s even more fun getting to find these things for myself (selfish? maybe a little. fun? heck yeah). So anyways, two trends that I’ve noticed that are going to be huge this fall are wide leg pants and anything in the color mustard. I was shopping for these two items myself but I decided to share some of my favorite finds with you guys to balance out my selfish comment above.

INTERNET ROUND UP

Chloe Gordon

READ 

I read this short passage on Tumblr the other day and my mind was blown. I always think about getting into ruts with what I physically do each day, but I’ve never really thought about the ruts we’re in with things we don’t think about as often — especially when it comes to words. Toc-Tic is just wrong. 

WATCH

If I could choose any famous person’s sense of humor to take for my own it would, hands down, be Steve Harvey. He’s hilarious and I always find myself watching his “best of” videos on YouTube, especially when I’m in need of some cheering up. This video is one of my favorites, and that little boy.. SO CUTE. 

Confession, when I looked up the link to this video I got distracted by all of the Little Big Shot videos so watch all of them haha. 

LISTEN

In honor of my friends going to his concert this week, I decided to share RUFUS DU SOL. I love his song “Sundream” and think you guys should give it a listen. It’s kinda bumpin’ but also chill. The perfect summer night song. 

SHOP

I’m working at Anthropologie this summer and it’s dangerously awesome. I want to spend my paychecks on literally everything in the store and it’s taking all of my will power not to purchase one of each. However, a lot of my co-workers have been purchasing this jumpsuit and I’m dying to try it on. Jumpsuits never look that great on me, but I’m convinced I need it. 

SEE

Something about this photo illuminates summer. Maybe it’s the fleetingness of it — summer is here and then gone in the blink of an eye. Maybe it’s the black and white. Maybe it’s the bare feet on the pedals. All I see is summer.

Girls have it rough. Not only do we have to deal with crippling patriarchy on the daily, but we have to deal with things like makeup, stupid people, and periods too. I mean, don’t get me wrong, down with the patriarchy and up to the rise of feminism, but in the moment, periods feel much worse. 

You have to deal with the pains of PMS, the constant worrying of leaking through, and just the overall miserableness that it endures. It’s literal hell. No joke. Not kidding. 100% serious. 

But you know what I discovered that makes life so much better so that we can conquer the effects of the patriarchy? Tampax Radiant Tampons. When you find something that works you stick with it. You live by it. They’re up to 100% leak free which leads to less stress and more time for fun. 

My friends and I went to the pumpkin patch this past weekend. Instead of worrying the whole time I was able to live fully in the moment and enjoy time with my friends. I could wear whatever I wanted without having to worry even a little bit, ‘period or not.’ We had a great time just getting off campus and enjoying the warm weather. It was so worth the 30 minute drive. I definitely recommend hitting the pumpkin patch with your friends. It also makes for the perfect backdrop. Take my word for it.
