Now, here's a preppy outfit for you.
I'm in love with this new top I received from Persunmall, who has been wonderful to work with. I chose one dress from the site (which I'll be showing off in a couple of days), but I also wanted to choose a top that I knew I would get plenty of wear out of. With so many dresses in my closet, I often find myself limited for separates, and I'm extremely happy to have this top to turn to now. It's a good basic, but the floral detail gives it the feminine touch that I so love. Plus, it's far better than quality than I would have expected from an item so affordable. We can just all agree to ignore the obvious bra straps showing, right?
I found this skirt at a thrift store for $1 while with my friend Liz last week, and so wonderfully preppy that I almost can't stand it. Any day that I can feel like I stepped out of "Clueless" is a good day.
My new friend Katie helped take these pictures for me, and I couldn't be more excited about meeting her. Katie is a fellow fashion student who recently transferred to my school, and she has the most adorable blog. It's pretty sad, but it's actually rare to find another fashion student who not only blogs, but actually has a great sense of style. The amount of T-shirts and sweat pants that grace my classes gets a little tiring after a while. I highly suggest checking out Katie's blog, The Style Duckling, since we'll probably be helping each other out with photos often this semester. Plus, her blog is really just that great and I'm slightly (creepily) obsessed with her. This is how I make friends, guys.
Another item of note? This monogram bracelet from Onecklace. While it's slightly too big for my wrist, I love the classic design. I've actually never owned anything monogramed before (if you look closely, it says "EMK"), so it's nice to have such a timeless piece now. Now, if only my wrists weren't so tiny.
