I am going to be completely honest…I never was one for the whole ‘preppy‘ look. I attempted the whole Lacoste phase when I was middle school and wasn’t sure i could truly pull off a polo, but when I saw gals rocking a chambray button down under a sweater I said to myself ‘Let’s give it a shot‘ and I am kinda glad I did 😉
Because the whole denim and sweater look
wasn’t preppy enough, I had to wear white jeans (yes I LOVE white jeans year round cc: ‘Feels Like Winter‘), add black patent leather flats and of course…a dash of neon (my satchel is available in my Poshmark closet here). Let’s break it down…this black + white striped sweater has become a favorite of mine (stay tuned to see how else I style it). It’s warm, cozy and black and white stripes are just begging to be paired with white jeans…right? 😉
I kept my shoes + bag simple and preppy…well as long as preppy includes neon and bows 😉 I was searching to patent leather pointed flats with a bow on them FOREVER and finally stumbled upon these ones from Target and I love them. Since I can’t have a look without color I included this yellow satchel (on Poshmark here)
P.S. There are a lot of fun things happening with freebies lately!
