Maybe I’m just so completely out of the loop, but there a few trends going on right now that I just don’t get. I see the masses jumping on board the bandwagon and wonder what I’m doing that it doesn’t appeal to me.
I’m not talking deep stuff here, like homosexuality or voting for the next US president. I’m talking regular old everyday trends that make me wonder what in the world that person is thinking.
I’m also very aware that I may be the only person to think that these things SHOULD NOT be trends. But to each their own, right?
I get it. I really do. Mom hairstyles are real. They are necessary. And I love and admire any Mom who can get her hair to look decent. If a topknot is really the way to do that, fine. But to me…a topknot is a ton of work and then your hair just sticks straight out the top of your head. Noooo. Just no.
2. Crop tops
What. No. Just no.
Occasionally I look at a woman who is totally pulling off a croptop and I think to myself ‘Now that is cute’. But let’s be real here…it takes the right woman and the right outfit to wear a crop top. I think the general public should rethink the use of crop tops. Like, yesterday.
3. Graphic tees
I’m not talking graphic as in blood and guts here. I’m talking about this totally new trend to write whatever you are thinking on the front of a t-shirt. Even if it actually makes NO sense.
There are some CUTE graphic tees out there. There are some I’ve been eyeing and some I have even put on my Christmas wish list. HOWEVER…this has become a trend that has gone one or two steps too far. We don’t need a random t-shirt or workout tank that says every thought that has ever entered your head. Again, we need to learn when to say no. Just no.
Look…a crop top with an obscure saying on it.
I just don’t even know how to respond to that.
And another one.
If that is the case, you probably shouldn’t be wearing a croptop. Just sayin’.
Ok, SO CUTE when officially stamping your new married name on a silky bathrobe for your wedding day. SO CUTE on a baby blanket. SO CUTE on a purse or a backpack. SO CUTE in moderation (and price moderation!)
BUT monogramming every.single.thing your child owns? Their socks? Their onesies? Their overalls? Their crib sheets? Their hats? Their Kindergarten backpacks? I just don’t get it! Especially the poor sons. Imagine having to show your future wife your first day of Kindergarten picture with monogram overalls, monograms socks, monogram shoes and a monogram backpack filled with a monogrammed ruler, pencil, pencil case and monogrammed toenails.
Let the dude just look like a dude!
P.S. Is this kids name Luke? Cause his monogram doesn’t match his name.
5. The iPhone 6.
Basically, I’m gonna start carrying my laptop around. In my hand. Because there ain’t no way I’m fitting that thing in my pocket!
