If you’ve been following the Fall 2019 fashion trends, I’m sure you’re not shocked to see me writing about this topic… animal prints! From the runways of NYC to the mall down the street, you’ll be seeing leopard print, snakeskin and other animal prints everywhere you turn.
As a lifelong animal print aficionado, I couldn’t be more excited that this trend is back and better than ever! I counted and I already have 10+ leopard print pieces in my wardrobe that I’ve accumulated over the years and, honestly, I would be wearing them still even if they weren’t “in”. My absolute favorite is when a print or pattern I consider to be a classic or wardrobe staple gets REALLY popular again. It’s the perfect time to stock up.
I get that you may be a bit less over-the-top excited than I am about the trend, so if you’re just dipping your toe in… don’t worry, I’ve got options for you too!

I also threw in one non-fashion brand that has an awesome sale that you need to check out! Be sure to read all the way to the end of the post so you don’t miss out on that one!
Let’s talk polka dots… I hesitate to call polka dots a trend given that the pattern is such a classic. Regardless, we can’t deny that POLKA DOTS ARE HAVING A MOMENT in Spring/Summer 2019!
As someone who loves a timeless look, I couldn’t be more thrilled to see so many adorable polka dot options. I was inspired by the dress to round up all of my favorite polka dot pieces that are available right now. If you’re a polka dot lover like me, you’ll definitely want to check out these awesome and on-trend yet classic pieces!

Last year was the first time I really got into holiday themed clothing, but now I can’t get enough. On Valentine’s Day, Kevin and I tend to prefer a cozy night in and cooking a nice dinner instead of going out on the town. We like avoiding the crowds and overpriced “special” menus. This means that for Valentine’s Day, I’m normally on the lookout for cute, casual outfit options instead of the usual little red dress!
Plus size brands have launched a lot of super cute V-day inspired options this year, and I was feeling them so much I had to round them up for you.
