    Happy Thursday, y’all!  One more day until the weekend.  YES!!!  So, what has been one of the BIGGEST trends this year?  Can anyone guess?  FLARES (I totally called this back in December, by the way.  See post HERE).  Anyways, I LOVE a good flare…whether it’s jeans, Bam Bam Bells, or a comfy knit pair, I have been rocking these since ‘nam.  They are super flattering and VERY COMFY.  Which is always key.
