    Crocs have mostly fizzled out here but they were just regular old clog style ones.

    I haven't checked out Urban Outfitters but sounds like a store worth looking at. I'd never heard of Aviator Nation and, oof, it's pricey. Yes, white Air Force Ones are still big here and expensive athletic shoes in general (Air Jordans, Yeezy, Ultra Boost) are big.

    Lol. So what would she say are the hot trends?

    DD, who is a college freshman, was just home for a week of fall break and she got new Adidas Superstars and Doc Martens, hit up Lulu for althleisure stuff and some store called Tilly's that I'd never heard of before for some "must have" jeans and tops. Birks, stickers for laptops and water bottles, and the latest makeup and hair trends are also a go to for her friend set. She also got a hot pink streak in her hair in addition to her normal balayage.

    DS1 is a long-haired hockey player who lives in hoodies, team warm-ups and either shorts or sweats and sneakers. He doesn't even own a pair of jeans. Or a proper winter coat beyond his Patagonia down sweater. He's plugged into airpods and into gaming. Not sure he'd know a trend if it hit him in the face!

    DS2 is more into trends. He says the Supreme thing is over here, though. He lives in hoodies and skinny sweats with huge clunky basketball shoes. He typically has some sort of trendy soccer player haircut that seems to change up about every 6 months. He just asked for over the ear Beats headphones, new hoodies, a new basketball and a succulent plant for his birthday. Kind of all over the map!

    LOL. Iím so proud to be the one who said mullets which at least gets a half vote.

    Crocs are still super in here, especially among the girl soccer players. They were them to/from practice and games with their soccer socks and shin guards on. I was just in DSW yesterday and the Crocs section is an entire aisle, Dicks is the same way...a wall of Crocs. I see mostly patterned ones instead of solid colors right now in the stores.

I'm amazed.

    There's this weird trend here since the weather turned colder.... little bitty sweaters. We're talking cropped, belly-showing, tank or spaghetti straps - but made of cable-knit or other heavy sweater.
    I find it really strange, and keep wanting them to cover up. (DS says.. "You're such a mother!")

    Succulents/plants are something that seem to be universally liked by tweens and teens.

    brands/places my girls like (they are 17 and 18) - lululemon, athleta, free people, yeti, urban outfitters, bombas socks, puma sneakers (chunky white ones). Airpods never go out of style. They love their Apple Watches.

    my son (15) loves sweatshirts (college ones, specifically), his iPhone, and everything on the menu at dunkin donuts

    My 16yo ds says for girls itís Air Force nikes, tight- cropped tops, chunky-soles shoes (lug soles are still in). For boys who skateboard or scooter he said to just buy something at Zumies. 13yo dd still loves chunky, baggy sweaters. But she also loves 50ís fashions when she can find them at the antique shops so her style is pretty unique.

    I find that the kids complain less about the clothes I buy them from Zara. So maybe thatís a place to look. Hard to say, really.

    I'm still not used to the fact that I can't go to a beauty salon and I need to learn how to cope with many beauty treatments on my own at home. I'm starting to gradually improve my skills in everything related to hand care, including manicure. I realized that it's really difficult to cut the cuticle or shape it with nails without a quality tool. I'm currently choosing glass manicure stick, here https://zamberg.com/collections/glass-stick I found many different products, but I still don’t know which one should I choose. Maybe someone here can help me?
