Fringe and Suede

August 10, 2015

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. If you follow me on Snapchat (straightastyle), you already know Russ and I went with my parents to a demolition derby. It was really fun and a total cultural experience in small town Oklahoma.

This fringe and suede outfit feels really me: trendy but not too dressy, a little edge but not grunge, neutral, and non-girly. Since I love my denim skirt so much, I had been eyeing its suede counterpart. When this Topshop version was part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I took the plunge. It’s the only thing I bought, and I love it. (Sidenote: Wow, who knew that was such a big thing in the blogging world?!). The skirt is real suede and very nice quality (more budget friendly option here). I loved the rust color. I think these will continue to be a big trend for the fall, and I can’t wait to wear mine with a sweater. This Forever21 fringe top made the perfect pairing. I had been on the hunt for a fringe top like this since seeing a more expensive version on several of the bigger bloggers I admire. At only $17, this one fits the bill for me.

    That top is from Forever21 eh? Great find. Their buyers have been doing a great job in the last few years. It seems the cuts have become more generous, allowing all figures to wear their clothing. As well, the quality is a tad better as well. The pairing of the summer knit with the suede skirt is perfect. You look great.

    Probably my favorite look of yours Amy Ann!!! I totally thought that top was the one that Sincerely Jules has worn that’s like $300 but I knew you wouldn’t do that haha. That one is such a great find, I may just have to order it! Love it paired with the suede skirt too. I have been considering one for a while now!

      Thank you so much! It might be my favorite too. She is who started my quest! I just couldn’t justify the price tag. 😉 You need to get this top!
