Today's Everyday Fashion: The Preppy Nerd







































Inspired by this J.Crew photo, I threw on this outfit yesterday and wore it to church. Part preppy, part nerdy, it was the perfect look to suit my mood. I'm a big fan of mixing blues and greens and I love how the neutrals flow in this look. Are you a fan of mixing blues and greens?

  1. This is such a pretty color combo...makes me think of spring! I'm actually wearing blue and green together today but in cobalt and emerald.

  10. Thank you for helping me get dressed today! I had absolutely no creativity this morning to do it on my own...wore a similar blue cardigan over a green T, plus a funky scarf.

  27. like the blue and green together, but wasn't a fan of the brownish pants with it. i really don't think the top half suits the bottom half...

  28. I might have to try something similar paired with my yellow pants! I love mixing all colors of the rainbow, so I think the blue and green pair quite nicely together!
