SAHMonday: Fringed and Frayed

Welcome to another edition of SAHMonday – weekly outfit inspiration just for the stay at home and work from home moms of the world (like me!) who aren’t heading out of the house on Monday morning.  You can check out the other outfits in this series here.

These outfits are perfect for when you want to feel comfortable, yet put together, so that you can face the day and any errands you may need to run.  Plus, most of these outfit formulas can be pulled straight from your closet.  If you don’t have my exact pieces, that’s ok.  Just use one of the substitutions that I recommend.

Spring Trends – Fringed and Frayed

One of my favorite ways to make everyday outfits feel special is to work seasonal trends into them.  Even an ordinary t-shirt and jeans can be made trendy with just a few details like fringe and frayed hems!

A few weeks ago in my post about Why I Gave Stitch Fix a Second Chance I first showed you this fringe hem top.  Since getting it in last month’s fix, I’ve gotten a lot of wear out of it.  I can’t link to it directly since it came in my fix, but if you’re looking for a similar top here’s a sleeveless one and this one has long sleeves.

Add in some frayed hem jeans (another big spring trend) for double the fringe-y fun and finish it out with a pair of lace up ballet flats.

Let’s talk about these lace up flats for a minute.  They’re super comfy and go with almost everything in my closet.  If you want an easy, trendy update for your ballet flats, try these!
