Feelin’ fringy

You guys! You guys!! I cannot believe the moment has come for me… You’re probs wondering what in the heck I’m talking about right? Well, I’m just coming to a  realization I’m getting a lil #edgy with my looks. Platform sneaks, fringe jacket and tank, and some pink shades…. Jeez. I’m too much.

I was feeling hella fun when I got dressed. I mean- a fringe tank was enough, but to add a shag jacket on top? I’ve gone crazy… I actually centered this entire look around my new espadrille sneaks (those of you that follow me on Instagram are fully aware I am obsessed with them. I only posted about them about 5 times… so there’s that). They’re so fun and honestly out of my comfort zone. While I was at it, I figured I’d go all out and throw some fringe on too! This tank was another sale rack find and I’d been trying to figure out what to pair it with, but then it hit me.. a jean skirt (obvi)! Since it was chilly, I opted for a shag jacket (another sale rack find wahoo). And y’all these pink Ray Bans are my new favorite thing… they make me feel like Hyde from that 70’s show lol. I thought they went pretty well with this 70’s feeling look!

PS: I just started using Lightroom to edit my blog pictures.. how do y’all like it? I think it’s a lot easier to manipulate photos than on Photoshop. I’m still getting the hang of things, but I’m pleased with my first real round of edits on it!

Swooning over this Spring | LGIP Spring 2016 Trends

Things normally work out so that by the point its mid winter, I’m already wanting Spring. It’s only February, and living in Louisiana, our weather is anything but predictable, so you never actually know when Spring will grace us with its presence. Nonetheless, I am ready for things to warm up. Next month is spring break, and easter- so it’s time to whip out some bathing suits, sundresses, and of course- Jack Rogers (look at my summer posts and you will quickly learn my OBSESSION with Jacks). I’ve been peaking on a whole bunch of websites- although sadly I cannot purchase much (broke college student) and have found quite a few trends I think will show up on the fashion scene this spring.

// Get your tassel on //

Honestly, I’m always a huge fan of tassels. They are something that I think is so fun and a great way to jazz up your stack. I own a few tassel bracelets from Bauble bar (see my post on them here), and I plan to be purchasing some more so I can stack those babies up! The multicolored beaded ones are my faves as of right now. Tassels can also be done in necklaces, as well as earrings. If you’re looking for a statement, go no further tassels it is!

// Snakeskin anything //

Snakeskin has made its comeback! You can find it in anything from purses, skirts, dresses, pants (MuMu has an adorable snakeskin line).

// Lace em up //

Gladiator sandals were all the rage last spring/summer, and honestly I feel like they are a classic. Sam Edelman has a great line of lace-up gladiators, they even come in snakeskin, black and classic camel. I love a lace up sandal with a basic denim short and tee for a casual day. If you’re looking to dress up an outfit, chunky lace up heels are perfect. They add a little bit of pizzazz!

Let’s be real- when is black and white not in style? This spring season I’m seeing lots of fun black and white prints. Black and white is a great base to accessorize off of. Throw on some pops of color in your shoes, or even in some jewelry.

// Crochet swimwear //

I’ve seen endless repins of this crochet bathing suit on Pinterest. It’s the perfect combo of that boho vibe and some bright colors. While browsing I Believe in Pink, I saw that Amy had linked a bathing suit that looked almost exact to the expensive one, but for only $25! I ordered it yesterday, so we’ll see how it looks when it gets in the mail!

// Aztec //

Aztec always finds its way back into style around spring and summer. This season we will be seeing aztec everywhere swim wear, clothing and accessories.

// Fringe is still in //

Fringe is here to stay, y’all. I’m obsessed with this fringed suede skirt. It’s the perfect length and I love how the fringe is at the bottom, not covering the whole skirt. Fringe purses are super duper cute and great to make an outfit more casual and bohemian.

Much love y’all!
