Thank you so much for stopping by the Trend Spin Linkup today! Today's trend is stripes and checks.  Plaid, stripes and windowpane prints have been huge this year, and I have worn my fair share of them.  I think I have actually worn more of these prints in the last year than I have my entire life - aside from those horrible little plaid dresses my mom used to dress me in when I was little paired with a bow the size of my entire head.  Sorry mom.  = )  For today's linkup, I decided to wear all three - a tuxedo stripe on my jeans, a plaid scarf and a check print blouse.  It was so cold when we were taking pictures, and it started pouring down raining, so you'll have to forgive me for the awful hair.  Now it's your turn to show us how you wear heels. Here are our top 2 winter white looks from last week!

Next Tuesday's theme is denim!  It will be nice to change out of my normal uniform of skirts and put on my favorite pair of denim skinnies. 

All bloggers will be able to submit their post links via the inlinkz widget below every Tuesday at 7:00am CST with their take on our trend of the week. This will allow bloggers to show off their personal style, find new followers and meet some great fashionistas! You will also have the chance to be featured on our blogs the following Tuesday! So grab the button (on the Trend Spin Linkup page) and link up. For all bloggers, we simply ask that you please follow your 2 hosts and your cohost of the week - Walking in Memphis in High Heels, The Fashion Canvas and Landing on Love (the first 3 links in the linkup) and provide a link to the Trend Spin Linkup in your post or add the button below to your blog. Don't forget to stop by the The Fashion Canvas and Landing on Love to see how they wore their trend today. Then spread the word. Thanks, and see you next week in denim!
