Embroidery On The Rise

Happy Wednesday! I hope y'all had a great Labor Day and got some yummy grilled out food. We don't have a grill just yet, I'm leaving the task of picking one out for my husband. Especially considering that I'm terrified to use one! I have this fear that it'll just explode. LOL. I tend to do that though. Ya know, just think of all of the bad things that COULD happen. 

But anyways, I want to talk about a trend that has taken a little while for me to get on board with. I really enjoy fashion and checking out trends, however I don't always just like to adopt a trend just because it is a trend. Or just because I see a million and one bloggers wearing the same exact item. The trend of the summer that I just could not get on board with? Those Cult Gaia basket-like purses. I just can't. And I've seen purses that are literally buckets (LITERALLY, and I say again because I just don't know who thought that would be okay) and baskets. Now, I like to try different trends and I certainly don't think my style is basic. One thing I always do when styling an outfit is rely on my accessories. I think the accessories can totally make or break an outfit. 

Now with the embroidery trend, I think there are few ways to attack it. If you're like me and you are hesitant, then start with a top. I've rounded up some subtle embroidered tops below. Chances are if it's subtle, you'll definitely feel more comfortable wearing it!

If you make it through the embroidered top phase, try out a pair of jeans next! What I like to do when styling an embroidered item, is pair it with a simple + neutral top. Basically, how I styled it in today's post. If you're styling of the the subtle tops above, I'd pair it with dark jeans or light washed distressed jeans depending on the specific top. Check out some of my favorite embroidered jeans below.

So after seeing today's post, what are your thoughts on the embroidery trend? Are you in or out? Still on the fence? Let me know below! Oh, and if you have an embroidered item and you're just not sure how to style just shoot me a message and I'd be happy to share my suggestions. Have a great Wednesday! If you're in Florida, please be careful as Hurricane Irma approaches.
