Hi there! 

As you might have already seen on my IG, I was on a girls trip to Austin, TX last week through the weekend and we had such a great time! Our theme was "fringe" and it's such a fun trend to incorporate into your wardrobe I felt compelled to blog about it.  

In the look above I styled my light pink faux suede fringe sleeveless jacket and blush pink peasant blouse with lace and bow neck detail, both new pieces from Forever 21, with my oldie but goodie Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply ripped boyfriend jeans, Maypol gold espadrilles, and Rebecca Minkoff black fringe leather bag. It was the perfect look for a stroll on the bike path along the river in Austin. 

Fringe has such great movement and there are so many great ways to wear it. During the trip we all wore it on bags, boots, tops, pants, jackets, vests, and even a bolo tie.  Check out more images below for other ideas on how to wear fringe for a fun day or night look! 

Xo,
