What I Wore: Preppy Plaid

what I wore: jacket – vintage brooks brothers, dress – calvin klein, booties – forever21, pin – vintage
This jacket is one of my all-time favorite finds. I love the fit and the color is perfect for Razorback games that get a little chilly. Or anytime an outfit needs a little extra kick of prep.

M is for Monogram

While I do have a few preppy tendencies, I wouldn’t consider myself or my style “preppy”. Why then am I tempted (attempting) to monogram everything from beer glasses to bed sheets?

I’ll tell you why, because it’s adorable. Annnnd I might be a little excited about our monogram: PBR.

I Wore A Turban…

What I wore: turban – vintage from Cheap Thrills, blazer – vintage, jeans – Banana Republic, heels – vintage

I mentioned here that I was a fan of turbans but had not yet tried one out. A few weeks later, I found a vintage one at my favorite shop in Fayetteville – Cheap Thrills. I must say, I got a few ‘complisults’ at work. People said things like, “only you would wear that”. Haha.

Who cares, that’s why I love fashion – the ability to experiment. I do realize I’m taking a risk by posting a photo of myself after brutally judging the attendees of the met ball. Oh well!

So now that you see me in a turban, would you wear one?

Fabulous Prep

Oh look, here is the rest of his head :)

 

As the weather warms and the flowers bloom, I find myself attracted to preppy classics. There’s just something so fresh about clean lines and bright colors. I’m not going so far as to tie a sweater around my neck but I do have a certain fondness for madras and seersucker. I tend to veer towards the Jackie Kennedy or Kathryn Hepburn version of prep rather than Lilly Pulitzer. How about you?
