Prep-tastic or "Where are your knee socks?"

That's what Ruth asked me after she gave me the up-and-down inspection at work.

I've been looking for a navy top to go with some of my skirts for a while - this is a lovely 100% cashmere sweater that I found for $38...a steal compared to new (wow, check it out: my navy sweater is $129 regular price). Cat got one in purple. Sofffffftttt....
I felt very preppy in this - not really my look (L didn't like this at all), but hey, I don't like doing the same kind of look every day. This all goes back to my mom's excellent advice when I was 17 and starting to experiment with fashion. She said, "Wear whatever you want, but change it every day and don't get stuck in a rut." Smart lady!

The stuff:
I had to use the flash as it's now pitch dark when I arrive home from work - the blue is a true navy.

Sweater (Land's End, consignment), blouse (Vero Moda), belt (some boutique for $5), skirt (Le Chateau, consignment), shoes (Predictions, consignment), ring (consignment shop), gold hoops (gift from L).


  1. Your mama spaketh the truth; the wearing of the different styles is what keepeth the boredom away. I'm IN LOVE with that skirt. Gorge.

    I thought I'd added you to my side bar, but I hadn't, but I will in the morning when I'm on the actual computer, (as opposed to my phone). Please check to see!!


  2. You have to play with other fashion aspects! that's what makes it fun.

  3. Yes, she's been proven right over and over! Thanks, Julia - I love the shape of the skirt. Oh, thank you so much! I will add you as well. :)

    Tina, you're totally right. I would hate to get stuck in a rut.

  4. I love the "preppy" look on you :-)

  5. Great Post found here.....
