All the Fringe with Pumps & Pushups and Hey Girl, Link Up.

Don't you all love Fringe and Tassels, especially this Fall 2015? I do, I like them a lot. They are all the rage these days, bringing the 70s back. We will get to the outfit in a minute, but first I am so happy to announce that I am the Guest Host of "Hey Girl Linkup" hosted on Wednesdays by Beautiful Girls, Boutique Owners and Best Friends Brooke and Erica from Pumps & Pushups. Brooke is mom to two little boys and Erica is a brand-new mom herself. Erica gave birth to a lovely baby girl just recently, so make sure you stop by and congratulate her. =)

"Two Tassels for Me" Set of 2 Tassel+Beaded Bracelets in Burnt Orange and Turquoise: Pumps & Pushups (New) (similar w/ wooden beads, Splurge), (similar chain option, comes in several colors, great deal, love this), (gorgeous option in lilac, best deal).

So, since I am co-hosting with these lovely ladies, I also wanted to talk a little bit about their online boutique Pumps & Pushups Collection. Today I am styling several pieces from their boutique (linked above). New clothes, yeay! New clothes make me happy, don't they make you happy?

So, as you can see I have on three new items I purchased at Pumps & Pushups. The Olive Tunic with the side Fringe (I am wearing a Medium and I sized up, I suggest you do too); the Gorgeous, Soft, almost Blanket-sized Gray+White Herringbone Scarf (which I think is my most favorite thing from my package); and the bundle of two Tassel Bracelets (one is Burnt Orange/Coral with a Turquoise Tassel and the other is Teal/Green with a Hot Pink Tassel; I love how beautifully they alternate). I paired them all with some Slight-Distressed Medium-Wash Denim Skinnies, an Olive Hat a few shades lighter than the Top and some Brown Leather, Croc-Embossed, Lace-up Stilettos with Tassels (adding yet a little bit more Fringe). And this is the Outfit I wore last Friday night to dinner with my 2 cousins who are also great girlfriends of mine. I received compliments on the entire outfit especially the top, the shoes and the hat.

But, this outfit almost didn't happen at all. After fiddling back and forth with a Visa Gift Card (since I barely use my European Credit Card because the charges and fees are outrageous for usage out of Europe), the transaction finally happened. Brooke was so patient with me and she held on to all the items I purchased for all those days. Finally, all of these pieces arrived and I couldn't have been happier with them. I got some great quality items for the price of each one. I can see each item be styled several ways. I did order the top in a medium (per Brooke's recommendation too) because I wanted breathing room for the girls (I hide them well usually but trust me, I am a full-chested girl). Plus the top is Olive which is one of my most favorite colors. The style of it is so unique. The Herringbone Scarf was the item I thought I would gift at first. But this thing is so soft, beautifully knit and in an unique herringbone pattern, plus it is huge and it has some long fringed hem so since it is both wide+long it can be styled different ways - I am definitely keeping it. And lastly, I had been looking for a couple of Tassel Bracelets that didn't cost a fortune since Spring now. I finally have these and they are so cute and bright and in my opinion - seasonless. They will look great with both of my Tassel Necklaces, too. And, most of these photos came out bad because it was getting dark out (I waited too late to take pictures) and as I am learning and messing around with my new camera, it was not cooperating with me at all. As a matter of fact, because of these photos I was 10 minutes late, at the restaurant. So that's the story behind my outfit and behind my pictures today. I am linking it with an unique monthly linkup hosted by the Lovely Elle titled "Story Behind the Pic". Sorry, it was such a long story today, but sometimes that happens to be.
