3 Trends I'm Taking With Me Into 2019

styleKat Crowley

Hi hunnies,

It’s almost 2019, so cue all the “trends I’m leaving behind in 2018” posts. Well, you know what? I’m bringing some with me! There are some trends I’ve been loving/haven’t tried yet that I want to keep in my wheelhouse into next year.

My sisters took these photos of me in Blue Hole Regional Park in Wimberley, TX. Beautiful location, right?? My sister, Juj, works there in the summer. If you’re ever in the Austin area, I recommend taking a day trip to swim at Blue Hole and walk the trails. Also check out Jacob’s Well (10 minute drive from Blue Hole). Wimberley is such a special place to me.

The dress I’m wearing is sold out on ASOS but I will link just in case they restock, plus some similar options!! It’s such a fun statement piece. I paired with my favorite Shein mules. Keep scrolling for all the details plus the 3 trends I’m bringing with me into 2019!

Ok, yes, we all know this is my my favorite trend currently. If you hadn’t noticed, I’m wearing it here and here and here. And I wrote and entire post about it here. It’s just fun and fresh and I can’t get enough. The dress I’m wearing in this post is a little more out there in color, but if you buy the print in it’s more common neutral tones, its a great way to add some texture and pizzaz without being too loud. Ya feel me? I see myself wearing snakeskin deep into 2019. Here are some snakeskin items I’ve been eyeing:

Crystal Detail

I dabbled with wearing crystal/rhinestone details for Femology’s 100 Detroit Female Bloggers event with these super cute hair pins from Target ( Yes/No pins below). I definitely want to get into some more bling in the new year! Adding some sparkle in your accessories is an easy way to take a simple look to the next level. I’m planning on getting a crystal belt (like the pink or gold option below) to pair with some mom jeans and a neutral top. I’ve been seeing so many hair accessories with a diamante look. Throwing on a headband with an oversized blazer and trousers will give your ‘fit a feminine touch. Keep an eye out, I might be wearing a few of the items below for NYE!

Kitten Heels

If you would have told me that kitten heels were a thing 2 years ago i would’ve been like, “Ew, no. Are you ok???!!” But I’ve really warmed up to them in the last 6 months! I think they are so chic when styled correctly (don’t pair with a cut off denim skirt and abercrombie shirt via 2004). I love the idea of pairing a slingback kitten heel with a wrap midi dress or midi skirt. They are v work appropriate but are feminine and fun! I’m especially in love with the green velvet, leopard print, and creme colored boots below. I can see myself wearing a kitten heel all of 2019.
