I was inspired after watching all those beautiful dresses on the red carpet to start incorporating those trends into my outfits this week. So each day you’ll see one or two trends that we’re on the red carpet. What trends are your favorite from the 2015 Academy Awards?
Monday, February 23rd:
Did you see how beautiful Jennifer Hudson was in yellow?! Check out her Romona Keveza dress!
Which reminded me, I have some beautiful yellow boots I never wear!! Plus, It was freezing out and I needed to add some sunshine to my outfit. These beautiful yellow faux suede boots are from justfab.com.
Now for what inspired my oufit! Reese Witherspoon look amazing in her Tom Ford black and white dress, it fit her perfect!
This dress was icing on the cake for me… I’ve been seeing black and white stripes all over the places but I didn’t have any a shirt or anything. I picked up this shirt at Target and my jeans are the curvy fit also from there. My blazer is from Primp and when they have these in stock they’re always in a variety of colors. I just love this blazer.

Tuesday’s outfit is inspired by the beautiful floral trend that was on the red carpet.
For the shoes, I pulled out a pair I don’t wear too much. I got these so long ago that I don’t reminder where I got them but they’re such a fun pair of pumps. The flower on top adds a real conversation piece to the outfit.
The floral trend continues to my purple cardigan that I got at Target. This is much bolder than what you saw on the red carpet but I haven’t yet embarrassed the floral look, I am trying. I paired the top with a floral lace black skirt that I got a Kohl’s. I really committed to the floral look for this one!
Wednesday, February 25th:
There were some beautiful metallic gowns Sunday night but my favorite was Laura Dern’s Alberta Ferretti gown.
Of course when I saw this I thought, I really need to pull out my Steve Madden metallic purple boots. I mean, didn’t everyone? These boots I don’t bring out too often because they are so pointy that they get scuffed pretty easy. These were originally $300 but I wanted until they were on ultra clearance and I got the for $65, which I believe is the most I’ve ever spent on shoes.
For the outfits, it’s all about the black and white trend for me this week. I keep going back to it because it’s so easy to pull off. All though my favorite black and white gown was Reese Witherspoon look, a close second was Marion Cotillard’s Christian Dior gown.
I was excited to get this new jacket in the mail, I ordered it from Sheinside.com. It took awhile to get it to me but I got this week and couldn’t wait to wear it. I paired it with pixie pants from Old Navy.
Thursday, February 26th:
Pretty in pink! There was a lot more pink than normal at the Oscars and it made me want to embrace pink. My favorite pink dress was Zoe Saldana’s Atlelier Versace dress but Gwyneth and Anna pulled the look off too.
So for the shoes I stuck with a nude pair to keep the look simple. These are from Target and I have to say they’re like flats to me… when it doubt these are the pair I wear.
Now for the pink. The only light pink I own is this super comfy sweater from Kohl’s. Seeing the trend on the red carpet made me pull out a sweater that I simply don’t wear that often. To dress the sweater up a bit I added my anchor scarf which I have no idea where or when I got this. And to finish this simple look I wore my silver jeans that I love so much!!

For the last trend this week, I wanted to feature the all black. This was a unique challenge for me cause I love adding color to my look. Cate Blanchet, Sienna Miller, and Margot Robbie looked absolutely beautiful in all black but I especially love the pop of color Cate added.
For the shoes, I had to wear my favorite black pumps that have a beautiful textured heel! I love what this heel adds to a look, so simple yet still such a statement. These were purchased at DSW.
For the outfit, I stayed as true to all black as I could but I took a note from Cate Blanchet and added a little pop of color with my belt. This entire outfit is brought to you by Target!
