Preppy OOTD

Preppy OOTD

Not sure where I got the motivation from to actually dress up on a Saturday, but it happened. Also, I rarely dress preppy; but I wanted to try this new black and white chevron skirt I got for Christmas. I really love nautical colors, so over a simple black tank top I am wearing a thrifted navy blue cardigan, fastened with a coral pink belt.

I’m not big on chevron, but I really like the way this skirt falls so that it makes the pattern overlap. So there you have it, my OOTD 🙂

Sweater Weather

Sweater Weather

Yet another fall outfit (when it’s still way too hot for sweaters)! But hey, I like to be prepared. Fall and winter are seriously the only seasons I actually utilize my skirts, so I couldn’t stop myself from going crazy with the fall outfits on my blog.

Also, has anyone ever listened to the song Sweater Weather by The Neighborhood? If you haven’t, do it now.

Back to School – Preppy

Back to School - Preppy

I’ve been wanting to create a look like this for a while now – the only thing I seem to be missing is a feminine bow tie. Of all my back to school outfits, this look seems to be the most fitting. I decided to create a school uniform gone casual, starting off with a navy blue cardigan. The great thing about navy blue is that you can match it up with just about any color – greens, blues, reds, yellows, oranges… so long as there is a significant contrast in hue. I went for a light pink, pinstripe button down and rolled up the sleeves to create that chic, classy (no pun intended) student impression. I also wore my dark wash (straight-legged) jeans with some casual gray slip on shoes and a simple bracelet. And, last but not least, I wore my glasses – not because I’m too lazy to put on my contacts – but because what better way to look study-oriented than wearing glasses? Everybody knows this is true.

Well, that’s my look for today. Happy Monday!
