Today's Everyday Fashion: A Preppy Twist

I love how Shopbop took the ultimate preppy look - a collared shirt and sweater - and gave it a 'tude (photo left). They inspired me to pair my preppy top with some skinny cargos, rockin' boots and a sparkly necklace - for this look, it's all in the details!

Styling tip: A sweater/collared shirt combo is classic look for women and perfect for the office. Try adding some fun updates to your look such as unexpected shoes, a belt and fun jewelry.

    Super chic! I love the way you belt J :)

  3. I like that this look is dressy on top, but fun on the bottom. Your blog is making me break out of my usual pattern of solid similar colors; I'm pairing stuff that I would have never worn before!

  4. I am currently wearing a belted cardigan a la J
    haha :)
    I LOVE this look.

  5. Love the necklace! :)

  6. So cute! I love your outfits. Take a look at my blog...I started a "Wardrobe Wednesday" where I post outfits every Wednesday! :)

  7. Love the preppy look! I wore something similar last week but without the belt...great idea. I've learned to incorporate more belts into my wardrobe ever since I began following your blog. Thanks so much for being an inspiration.

  8. Thank you Jennifer! I love hearing that it inspires you, thanks for being a fan of the blog! :-)

  9. Amy, you are so cute! I always love your outfits in person so I love that you are posting them. :-)

  10. LOVE it! Belt it up sista. :-)

  11. Thank you Vanessa! Love to hear that you are trying new things. Right outside our comfort zone is often when we look our best! :-)
