Good morning, y’all! It almost got cool enough to wear jeans this past weekend! So I’m officially excited for fall and couldn’t wait to break out the leather and this long-sleeve fringe top! Fringe and leather are definitely the two biggest fall trends I’m most excited about–especially paired together. This is my idea of a perfect fall transition outfit! Plus, y’all know I’m a sucker for fun sleeves! Shop similar items below and some of my favorite leather pieces!
It’s just that time of year when everyone in Louisiana, including myself, is grabbing up all the purple and gold we can find. Lately when I go shopping I feel like I don’t even see anything else because I’m only looking for game day colors!
So when I found Billie + Betty a few weeks ago, of course I picked the first piece of purple I saw. This ‘Lady in Shreds’ fringe dress eggplant and taupe color combo with fringe bottom was just the lightweight game day dress I was looking for! And as you can see, it can be easily dressed up or down with a pair of sandals.
Even better…Billie + Betty is local! It’s a new online boutique warehoused right out of Lafayette, Louisiana run by Tiffany McArthur.
Billy + Betty, which opened in August, is dedicated to Tiffany’s mother, Billie, and her twin sister, Betty who passed away in 1996. The symbol in between their names in the logo is the universal sign for “twin.” Tiffany said she strives to make her branding and the items she carries be as unique as possible and loves the items with a “wow” factor.
And she’s offering all Southern Flair readers 30% off with discount code SOUTHERNFLAIR30 at checkout! Happy Shopping!

I recently found out about Alex and Ani when I went to dinner with a friend and she had on the cutest little bangles. She told me all about the charm options and how there were a gazillion to choose from. My mom’s birthday was a few weeks ago, so I decided to get her this Saints bangle and the Texas Rangers one (even though as they sat at my house for a few weeks, I considered keeping them for myself). I’ve been wanting to share, but had to wait until after her birthday, obviously. I’ve picked a few of my favorites below–But I’m warning you, they’re addicting! Alex and Ani has birthstones, initials, favorite college and NFL teams, MLB teams, and so many other charms to choose from including ice cream cones, cupcakes, seahorses, pineapples–you name it!
You can even share your favorites on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest straight from the lookbook buttons below to drop a few hints to your friends!
Last week several of you asked about this cork clutch that is unfortunately no longer available. It was once sold at NastyGal, Nordstrom, and Chico’s, but it’s out of stock everywhere I’ve looked! And believe me… I’ve searched and searched for you guys! So instead today I’ve rounded up some more of my favorite cork clutches in a variety of styles that are just as cute. Shop the widget below and don’t forget you can also tweet, pin and Facebook share your favorites straight from the widget!

Somewhere along the way all the girls in Baton Rouge voted on leopard as being an acceptable gameday print. It’s not tiger, but it’s close enough and goes perfectly with all the purple and gold outfit combinations on Saturdays. Plus, I always enjoy wearing nontraditional gameday attire like this cream colored dress with a leopard kimono. It’s a great alternative to a LSU tee and shorts!
I completed my outfit with Louisiana-inspired accessories including this Freret & Napoleon oyster necklace, purple and gold tassel bracelet from The Royal Standard, Louisiana necklace from Anna Liv Design and a mustard yellow clutch. Shop similar items at the bottom of this post!
