PREPPY CLASSICS: WHEN PREPPY MEETS CASUAL

Perfect Preppy Outfit
A blazer is that one jacket, no matter what you may be wearing, it immediately elevates your look to a whole new level. Typically clean, sharp and formal looking. I just love that. I've always loved a man in suit but i think it is even cuter when done casually. That said, i think the girls have more flexibility in styling it. No?

While out and about, running errands and doing some fun things a couple of weeks ago, i decided to dress up a little preppy casual for the day. The weather was a little chilly, kinda fresh and crisp but perfect enough to wear a blazer. Being a two toned dark colored blazer with a preppy feel to it, i knew it would be great to pair it with a colorful sweater because it helps lighten up the look. Coincidentally, it happens to be another classic in stripes. Yes, i love stripes...a lot but now i think my entire wardrobe is becoming that. Hehehe. I really don't mind because at the end of the day these are timeless pieces. The white denim pants complete the "not so casual but not so formal" look i was hoping to achieve. Just perfect for a day out doing my thing in the city.

Honey you look gorgeous! I know I know I always say the same but there ain't nothing to say but drop dead gorgeous! Love your bag! Oh yeah stripes......as soon as I see stripes it's in my shopping bag, don't ask me how they get there, I often think those striped pieces do it on their own esp the blue/white ones ;-)
