Things I'm Not Obsessed With

There's something I need to get off my chest.

Sometimes I feel like I shouldn't be a blogger. (Not that I'm doing a very good job of it anyway.) There are some trends that I just can't get on board with. I'm not trying to throw shade, because I know I like things that are not widely accepted, so I get it. But we're talking really, super popular things that I just cannot make myself like. Granted, there are exceptions for some of these. Ready?

Chevron - I just don't get it. With the exception of these glasses. Obviously. Because gold. I own these. I love these. Yes.

Headbands - They hurt me. Also, I must have a weird shaped head or something because they never stay on. Regualr headbands slide, and the elastic ones just won't cooperate. I think they're really cute, so this one is just more of a personal fail.

Pumpkin things - I have never loved pumpkin. I love actual pumpkins, but once fall comes around and everything smells and tastes like a spicy gourd, I'm over here like, "Hey! I like apples!" Ready for the exception? There's an exception to my exception, here. (I'm a bit complicated, huh?) I'll only use this scent as soap. I won't burn the candle or use the body wash. But even I can admit that this is the perfect fall scent.

Hats - Don't get me wrong. Winter in DC can be crazy, and you better believe I will put a hat on to walk from the door to my car. Or at the very least an ear warmer. But all those floppy hats that are so popular this season? No.

Leather leggings - Just...why? No exception here.

Chalkboards - I know I'm going to eat my words when I jump on the chalkboard bumpdate bandwagon. But until then? I'll stick with making graphics and editing pictures. It also doesn't help that I have no artistic ability.

There are plenty of trends that I'm all about, too. Maybe I'll follow this up with a part two.

Are there any trends that you don't love? Or trends that you do love? Send 'em my way!

Oh girl I'm not on board with most of the trends either. I hate pumpkin flavored things (except muffins. because how can you not love a muffin?) and I'm not big on glitter anything. So sue me.

Chevron - thank you!!! I agree those glasses are rocking, but it's more about the gold than the chevron and I'm ready for a more sophisticated print.
