Today's Everyday Fashion: Punk Rock Prep






































You've seen me in similar preppy looks before, but what I love about this inspiration photo and tried to re-create is the punk rock attitude. My top half says I'm attending an Ivy League school, while my bottom half indicates I might be at a rock concert. And I kind of like it that way. :-)

Styling tip: Mix and match styles like ballet with military, rock-n-roll with preppy and goth with equestrian for some seriously stylish ensembles. What are your favorite "genres" to mix and match?

Occasion: Work
Inspiration photo: Street Peeper
Blazer: Gap, $70
Shirt: Ralph Lauren outlet, $20
Brooch: Banana Republic, $18
Pants: Gap, $20
Shoes: Carlos Santana/DSW, $33
Watch: Michael Kors, Christmas present
Bracelets: Forever 21, $8

  13. I think the beauty of your blog is that you show women that being fashionable is attainable and doesn't require thousands and thousands of dollars. And you are very talented and have an amazing gift for gorgeous taste :)

    I cant believe the DEAL you got on those pants! AND I love mixing genres, the one I do the most is formal/ casual. A really sparkly top with boyfriend jeans and flip flops for example. Gives you a chance to wear the things you normally save for "special occasiom"
