Blue Midi Skirt and Ridiculous Trends

Blue Midi Skirt and Ridiculous Trendsfeatured

Are there any trends you find numbingly stupid? Like the bucket hat. Or denim everything. Culottes anyone? (link game seriously strong) The trends I find the most delightfully senseless are the physically impossible ones.

Take that purse for example. Is this a joke? I can not even fit my iPhone six plus (well, granted, that thing fits nowhere, but still). I can not imagine using this as a real purse. Its ridiculous size was what drew me to this accessory at Zara. I totally left all of my junk at home to wear it.

Ok, that was a lie. My mom, who kindly took these photos, also kindly held my blue Kanken. So here is how I would style the mini bag if I would wear it. But I’m not insane.

Какие ваши любимые идиотские тренды? Панамка? Джинса с ног до головы? Кюлотты? Лично мне больше всего нравятся физически невыполнимые. Вот в эту сумочку, например, не помещается даже мой телефон (да, он размером с мое лицо, но все же). Если бы я не принесла ее в своем рюкзаке Kanken вместе с кучей незаменимого хлама, то, наверно, надела бы ее так.

  • Haha, SO TRUE!!! Denim everything drives me nuts too. WHY??? It looks horrible! Your outfit here is adorable and chic. I’m wearing a mini purse on my blog today too, but mine is a bit larger than yours. 😉


  • life is a shoe

    great post! I love the blue midi skirt! I really don’t like normcore shoes! I am a stiletto-pretty ballet flat kinda girl!


    • Not sure I know what norm core shoes are 😀 Sneakers? Moccasins? The ones I’m wearing in this post?

  • Love the little bag 100x more than culottes! I do agree with you on it being a bit impractical. Then again, what do I know, I carry an oversized tote that kills my back 99.9% of the time lol.

    Love your look.

    • Well, I’m with culottes here, sorry 😀 I switched to backpacks on a daily basis, although it does limit fashion choices.
      Thank you for stopping by!

  • Aww the little bag is so cute, it’s prob less ridiculous than the massive bags we all carry. Kinder on your back too

    • Good point, but the huge bags are definitely more practical 🙂 Although backpacks are the first comfy choice for me.

  • Beautiful outfit, Yana! It is super feminine and at the same time preppy. I love that combination!

  • Nice pairing with your top and skirt. Thanks for linking up at Who’s Wearing What Wednesdays at Pastries, Pumps and Pi!

    • Thank you for stopping by!

  • Love your gingham top with the blue midi!

  • Just beautiful Yana! I love the little bag and this whole look on you. I think the little clutch bags are just ridiculous myself but oh well.

    • This bag is like a bad boyfriend, you know he kinda ruins everything for you, but he’s so cute haha

  • You look beautiful XO! Thank you so much for sharing with #LINKUPWITHLISA @

  • Rather a culottes fan actually! Not a fan of leggings as pants. Not so much a trend as an epic fail though.

    • I might be guilty of breaking the leggings rule on several occasions… Not proud haha. And culottes are the best! Just posted a look with red culottes 🙂

  • Irene

    love the outfit! so simple! beautiful pictures!

    • Thank you for stopping by Irene 🙂

  • Love the strong combination of blue with the gingham shirt. Thanks for linking it up to Top of the World Style

    • Thank you Nicole 🙂

  • Lanae Bond

    There are some trends that do sound wacky, especially the bucket hat! That is something I would not try to do because I know I like crazy!

    • I have been toying with the bucket hat idea for some time. I have one from eBay. We’ll see 😀

  • Elegant Martina

    This youthful outfit is wonderful!

    Greetings from Martina, through Turning
    Heads #Linkup! I will be happy if you visit me at Elegant 40.

    • Thank you Martina 🙂 Will definitely visit your blog.

  • Lyn

    haha Yana, you are so funny. btw I l O V E culottes. If only I’m not short 🙁

    • Thank you Lyn 🙂 I love culottes too, but I’m not tall and my legs are seriously short. I find wearing heels and making sure the culottes are flow and high-waisted helps 🙂

  • Random Musings

    My trend pet hate was the whole oversized flowers stuck on the side of your head trend! #allaboutyou

    • I know what you mean, but I still think they are possible to pull off 🙂 But I’ve noticed this flower trend is slowly dying.

  • Jessie

    Oh but it’s such a cute little bag! I love it. and one trend I do not like is colored mascara. #AllAboutYou

    • Not a fan of coloured mascara either. Never saw anyone pull it off. Oh god, now it sounds like a challenge 🙂

  • Monica Siembieda

    haha I love your take on trends. I was actually just talking about this exact thing how certain trends I don’t understand. I will definitely test them out but I usually fail haha.

    • Thank you Monica 🙂 Sometimes I feel a trend is so stupid I have to try it haha

  • I got a kick out of this post! a lipstick and credit card perhaps? Well, love the blue midi! Let me see, as far as trends go, I am not sure yet.. I only go with the ones I like 🙂

    Thanks for linking up with Turning Heads Tuesday!

    jess xx

    • Thank you Jess! That’s about it 🙂 I actually like ridiculous trends, they’re fun and they prevent me from taking myself too seriously.

  • Ha, that purse is tiny! Maybe just right for a cell phone? I love the midi skirt!

    • The thing is, iPhone 6 doesn’t fit inside 🙁 lol Thank you for stopping by!

  • Natasha Karpova

    Мне нравятся топотушки))) милейшие!!!!

    • И удобные! Ток красятся ужасно(

  • I love your outfit! I agree with the mini bags though. Kate Spade Monday is as small as I can go, and that really only holds my phone and a lipgloss. 🙂

    • Thank you Stephanie 🙂

  • Mini bags are SO cute, but not very practical for daily use. Where would I put my lipgloss collection?! 😉
    Fizz and Frosting

    • I like my bags roomy and full of old receipts, random water bottles and stray make up, but that’s just me 🙂

  • That tiny bag is so cute! Love your tied gingham and blue midi skirt!

    • Thank you for stopping by 🙂
