What’s with all the pineapples?

pineapples_blue

Every year there’s some crazy new trend… everywhere you turn there’s a message that you need this and hurry before you miss out! This year it’s pineapples?! Don’t get me wrong, sometimes the trend is something I really love, like when flamingos were having a moment {actually I don’t think their moment is over yet}, but unless your spirit animal is a pineapple, maybe we can skip this one?

We all know that the only reason trends exist is that, without new things being offered, people wouldn’t be buying stuff nearly as much. I do love the freshness and newness of this cycle, I love seeing new ideas, and new creativity, new shapes and colors… new takes on old ideas… and ways that things improve with every ‘re-invention’… but really, the vast majority of the new stuff out there every season is totally just a passing trend or fad that no one really needs.

I really believe in honing in your style, for your house, your closet and wardrobe, your health… every area of your life, so that you can have clarity and not get caught up in the latest fad… staying connected to your truth, what really works for you and makes you feel good… things that will enhance your life.

So today I’m doing a little bit of a fun Friday round-up of accessories that are anything but pineapple… fun accents to freshen up your space, that will still be fun and ‘in’, long after this season, and this weird citrus trend, pass.

Enjoy! <3
