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.

    This look is so cute and edgy from head-to-toe! This reminds me of one of Sincerely Jules’ look but WAY more affordable!!

    That suede skirt is lovely, and I agree you’ll wear it over the cooler months to come too! Definitely get the 70s vibe with the fringed top too! 🙂

    Topshop is one of my favourite stores. I love how your skirt is very vintage / 70’s style and works well with the boho top and lace-up booties. You look great.

    Such a gorgeous look Amy as usual. I love how you style is now leaning towards more of a 70s free spirit girly. Love TopShop love this 🙂

    I think that skirt was a great buy–I love the color and details in the front. I’ve never been to a demolition derby before but it sounds like an experience for sure!
