Happy Thursday!

I couldn’t be more excited to be one day closer to the weekend. Tomorrow I will be heading back home to Memphis to hang out with my family for a baseball and shopping filled weekend. I definitely need a break from studying for finals , which I am currently doing as we speak. This summer I will be on 30A so I wanted to see them before I left! Next week, I am doing a blog post on why I will be there all Summer and what’s in-store for me so be on the lookout. I am so looking forward for the next week months. There is no other place I’d rather be that at the beach. Not to mention my bestie and I are only 10 days away from our cruise. My heart is filled with so much excitement!

I don’t know about you guys but I am obsessed with anything that consists of rainbow colors. The gorgeous bow details of this peplum checkered top on the back are just amazing to me! This top is only $13 and runs a little small so I would definitely size up. The colors on this blouse are perfect for summer and pairing it with these yellow J.Crew shorts was just icing to the cake! These shorts happen to be just $26 on sale and come in navy & yellow.

Well I guess I am going to get back to studying. Hope you guys have a great day!

XOXO,

Sweet Tooth Wednesday

Top : SHEIN // Jeans: Express // Shoes: Tory Burch // Earrings: Nordstrom

Cotton Candy Ice-Cream on a Wednesday? I think yes. I honestly can’t remember the last time I had an ice-cream cone but this has to be my favorite flavor of all time.My two favorite colors with a bunch of sweetness, sounds good right? My friend Farrar and I had a craving for it this afternoon considering how darn hot it was outside.

Anyways, I couldn’t wait to show you guys this adorable blouse I got a couple weeks ago. It is still stocked in all sizes and is only $8! Yes I said eight dollars. I am wearing a medium for reference. I have been skeptical from buying from SheIn just because it is SO cheap but honestly if the product has good reviews then you are good to go! It was one heck of a bargain and the material is great & light for Summer! You will definitely see this top paired with a cute pair of white shorts later this season.

I am about to start studying for the night so I figured I’d make this short & sweet. See you tomorrow babes!

XOXO,

Top : Old Navy // Jeans: American Eagle // Necklace : Express ( Similar)  // Shoes: Tory Burch

Good evening babes!

I wanted to get the chance to tell you guys I am starting a blog series about trendy items this season. I plan to write one every week about the up-to-date trends on clothing, accessories, etc. So basically if you see a post with the title “Trendy Tuesday: ….” then that’s part of the blog series. I figured I would switch it up a bit for ya’ll every Tuesday from now on!

Everything smocked has been popping up back in stores. Yes girls the TREND IS BACK. I can’t help but finding myself mesmerized of all of the tops, skirts, and dresses that are smocked. I just love how stretchy the material is and the way it fits. This weeks “Stay Trendy” item is this gorgeous smocked off-the-shoulder peplum top. I am wearing a size medium and it is only $17 at checkout. It comes in two different colors along with a few other patterns on Old Navy’s website. Click the link above to check it out! I feel like this trend won’t fade out for a while but that’s perfect for me! Give me all the smocked clothing!

Tomorrow is my last day of classes for my junior year and It is going to be CRAZY for the next few days so please bear with me! I have so many finals to study for lol. Please pray I do well! I hope you guys have a great night.

XOXO,

Amazing Grace Boutique

Top: Amazing Grace Online Boutique // Clutch // Shoes ( Identical ) // Shorts // Earrings // Bracelet

Hey Guys!

Normally, I don’t do blog post on the weekends but Amazing Grace Online Boutique sent me the cutest top so I figured why not? We finally made it to the coast and got our taste of some shrimp last night. This cute beachy outfit was perfect for date night.

So here is the background on Amazing Grace Online Boutique. One of my sweet friends Kristen Griffen is starting an online boutique. Her Instagram name is @amazing_grace_tx so you guys should definitely follow her and join her Facebook page which I have linked above. Here is an amazing thing about this online boutique , every item that is purchased, 5% goes to a charity and it will be switched up each quarter. Right now 5% is going to a charity called World Vision.The owner of Amazing Grace has a love for giving back any way possible and I thought that’s what made Amazing Grace stand out. The top I received was super adorable and I couldn’t wait to wear it.

Anything linen count me in! This time last year I bought these flowy white shorts from Aerie and I haven’t been able to give them up since. I found a dupe for you guys above, so I hope you like those as well.

Who else is looking forward to a great week?!

XOXO,

Free People Rainbow Top

IMG_0047-2IMG_8511IMG_0023IMG_0053-2

Top : Free People // Shorts: Dupe // Sunglasses: Amazon // Bag: Similar

Let’s start off this Tuesday by asking you guys a question. Did you know Starbucks has a “secret” menu item called The Pink Drink?! Well I didn’t until yesterday. I’ve seen so many bloggers drinking a pink drink from Starbucks and I finally googled it. Maybe a lot of you already know or maybe I am just out of the loop of Starbucks hidden drinks lol. It actually tastes really good. I am not sure what is exactly in it except the strawberry part. It does take a little getting used to at first but if you’re a wholeheartedly fruit person then hey props to you.

Anyways, I have been obsessing over this rainbow top by Free People. I saw it one day shopping and walked out without it.. silly me. A few days ago I went back and it was on SALE! I mean you guys should have seen how happy I was hahah. I found this top online for you guys and it is 40% off. I am wearing a size small if any of you feel the need to check it out! This top comes in four different colors and currently is stocked with all sizes!

So now for the bad news, I bought these cute shorts before Spring break when they were on sale at Red Dress Boutique so they are now sold out. BUT I have found a dupe for y’all right here. So not really bad news right?Yay! Now for these sunnies that I found for only $12 on AMAZON. Such great quality and I am loving how colorful the lenses are. Absolutely perfect for summer, don’t you agree?

Have an amazing Tuesday!

XOXO,

“Life is better with confetti”

Happy Monday lovely people! You are probably wondering why there is a a vast amount of confetti & why I have a cupcake in my hand. Well this weekend was a very exciting one for me because I have finally hit 2K on my Instagram : @trendykenziee . This might not be a lot right now but to me it’s everything. I started at the end of October last year and let me tell you.. blogging is actually really hard work. Two of the most important things I have learned through this process is to stay consistent and BE YOURSELF. Time is key and nothing will happen over-night. I’ve had to tell myself these words plenty of times when I have become discouraged. If you love to do something & you put your heart and soul into it you will see an AMAZING outcome. Slowly but surely.

Senior year of high school I retired the only hobby/sport I had ever known… Competitive Cheerleading. That was my life for 18 years and something I loved deeply. 7 days a week practices were the norm with the people I grew up with. Feeling that tingling anxious feeling before you hit the floor for 2 minutes and 30 seconds was one of the most crazy feelings I’ve ever felt. But when you hear them call your name for winning a National Championship & Worlds.. man… now that is one thing you will never forget and it’s hard to explain to others. Seeing your dream come true right in-front of your eyes, all that dedication and hard work you put into for all of those years finally paid off. I admit writing about this is even hard because I miss it so much and I’m not going to lie every time I go back and watch videos I actually cry because it was a part of me lol. My point from all that rambling is that blogging has become the next chapter of my life. I treat it just like I did when I was cheering competitvely for all those years. Stay consistent. Hit that milestone. Strive for that goal. Be yourself. If you don’t succeed the first time, try again.

I want to thank all of you guys for being so supportive as I continue this journey. Nothing makes me more happy than seeing my dream come true! Love all of you & btw these jammies are only $15 😉

XOXO,

My Favorite Gingham Tops

IMG_8317IMG_8316IMG_8315IMG_8311

Top : Similar // Shorts: Topshop // Earrings: J. Crew // Shoes : Marc Fisher ( Steve Madden Dupe )

 

Congrats, we made it to Friday! The weather is absolutely beautiful here. I was so tempted to go lay out by the pool yesterday but it was PACKED. Last night Justin took me on the cutest picnic ever and we watched the sun set. I know so cliche , but it was seriously one of the best dates ever.

I have become a huge gingham fanatic lately. I’ve seen so many tops, dresses, and even shorts that are covered in gingham! My favorite thing to do is pair a huge colorful pair of earrings with this pattern. I definitely have a thing for off the shoulder tops. This one was a huge bargain and it is sold out but I found a dupe for you guys here & it’s only $17. I am linking my favorite black and white gingham tops below, so be sure to check them out!

Now lets talk about these awesome black ripped jean shorts. This was my first item I bought from Topshop ( size 6) and I seriously love this pair of shorts. I will be wearing them on repeat in the summer! If you don’t have a pair yet I highly suggest these for sure.

Have a great weekend!

xoxo,

Trendy Kenzie
