When 9th and Elm asked me to browse their flash sale site of ‘Handmade, Independent, or Otherwise Cool’ things, I knew I had to have this “Sunday Funday” tank. Mostly because Sunday Funday is always my favorite day of the week to celebrate whether it’s spent all day brunching or now watching football–either way I have this cool tank to wear and be festive! And once the weather cools down, I plan to wear it with a cardigan or denim jacket to get plenty of use out of it throughout the fall.
9th and Elm has so many independent designers to discover with everything from clothing and accessories to home décor to barware. Make sure you’ve got a minute to check out all their unique items and shop the sales here!
Tomorrow is the first “real” day of fall and while I’m so ready to trade out my shorts and sandals for boots and scarves, this 90 degree Louisiana just isn’t letting that happen. It’s not time to ditch my summer favorites despite what my September issues have been telling me.
Is it just me or are September and October always especially difficult months to get dressed? Because clearly it’s warm enough to wear tank tops and shorts, but I have so many new fall favorites that I’m ready to start wearing. Come close to November I’ll do a full closet season switch, but for now I’m wearing some of my favorite summer staples to transition into the cooler months like this leopard kimono over a summer dress.

p.s. This past weekend was my 26th birthday! Thanks to all those birthday wishes on Instagram! You guys make my day
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 formyself). 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!
