Preppy Style

This might seem funny to some, but this preppy style is so out of the norm for me. All day, I felt like people were looking at me funny because of the way I was dressed -- as if I was wearing the craziest thing imaginable. To be honest, I actually got quite a few compliments on this look so this is why I decided to photograph it and now that I look at the photos, it's really a very regular outfit. Isn't it so funny the way we build these sorts of things up in our heads? I learned 2 things from this look: preppy is not my thing and fashion risks mean very different things to different people.

The things that I do really love about this outfit are the leather skirt and the leopard print boots. I could wear these 2 items every single day! This bag I do use pretty much everyday, so it's a keeper as well. And teal is my very favorite colour, so anything in this hue makes me feel happy all day.

I hope you like my "preppy look" and we should all respect the people that do dress in this style because the sweater over the button-up might just be the most uncomfortable look there is (I was adjusting and rearranging that sweater all day!)

  1. I think it's a nice outfit. Although I just can't seem to get into the leopard print, I like the outfit a lot. I often find myself wearing preppy. It's a comfortable outfit.
    I must admit that I love the skirt and the bag.
    and yeah, sweater over a shirt can be a difficult move sometimes :)

  9. I love this outfit! But I totally know the feeling you mean - when you're not comfortable with what you're wearing and it feels like everyone is staring. Hate that, but at least it helps you figure out what suits you :)

  19. I seriously love your leather skirt.

    And I agree with you about that style being uncomfortable. I tried it once and never again. Maybe I don't have the right sweater. I dunno.

  20. Love the boots. I love the pretty look myself. I agree - it's all about personal style.

  21. So true about fashion risks meaning different things to different people. That's why it's always great to experiment!
    Love this look on you. It's the perfect blend of prep + edge.

  22. I think fashion risks are only good if the person who pulls them off are confident to begin with. If a timid person just shies around with an outfit out of their norm, the outfit loses spunk and tenacity, which is much of its charm. I personally think it looks great on you! And yeah I know what you mean about layering with sweaters. They look great in photos, but it takes constant re-adjusting throughout the day. You and the Leather Skirt blog are seriously convincing me more and more that I should buy a leather skirt. It looks so professional and chic!
