Fringe Benefits

Super cold weather instantly brings out my need to dress all cozy and casual, so this week , which has been FREEZING--I've relied on a uniform of sweaters, denim and boots. Obviously, this gets repetitive after a while, so whenever I can add a fun detail--like fringe!--it makes me feel a little less basic. I scored this fringe-trimmed sweater from Mango on sale for just under $8, but since that was ages ago, I've found a few equally-cute fringed pieces on sale hereherehere AND here

I also decided to double the fringe factor with an adorable crossbody that came c/o Jentou. This festival-inspired bag is seriously cute, with super-soft leather and the perfect amount of fringe, and it can even double as a fanny pack when clipped to your belt loops (so practical for music festival lovers!). Plus, it's priced just over $100, making it a great gift option for the holidays. (And don't forget, you can still get 10% off + free shipping sitewide on Jentou with the code "TALESFROMTHETHRIFT"!)

I finished off my look with a pair of classic skinny jeans (a similar pair for $25 here!) and my tan over-the-knee boots, scored for around $40 on Amazon, and available in a bunch of colors here
