Nov 18th, TGIF


Another week under my belt, and can I say TGIF?! It’s been a LONG week! I don’t know about you- but my kiddos have been driving me nuts, is that bad?! I think I’m ready for my vacation!

If you’ve been reading this for a while, you may have noticed that I seem to really like the classic, preppy look!

On the right I’m showing one example, but it doesn’t quite work. Although this jacket is cute- the collar is a little too large, and the cotton fabric (it’s like sweat shirt material) wrinkles so easily that it looks messy.

On the left I’m showing an improved version. Even though there was nothing wrong with the plain blue shirt from the right- to add a little interest and pattern, I’ve decided to go with this cute checked shirt. I’m wearing it under my blue blazer, which looks more polished.

I also have on my new favorite skinny jeans- Skinny Skinny by Madewell. These are incredibly comfy and they were around $100, which I think is reasonable (think price per wear- I wear my skinnys at least twice a week). They have so much stretch in them and the cotton is so soft, it is honestly like wearing sweat pants! Heaven!

I’ve finished the whole look off with my brown boots. Now, is it too soon for Happy Hour?!

I decided to tuck in my shirt for a cleaner look.
For a more casual look I think this shirt is cute enough to stand on it's own.
