Borrowed From The Boys: Preppy

My outfit today was inspired by, get this, the boys. Preppy ones to be exact. Since moving, I;ve noticed lots of guys taking the time to add little unquie touches to their outfits (trying to catch up with the ladies, fellas?!) There's something I really like about rolled up khakis & bow ties. I though I'd put my own little spin on this look because after all I am a very girly girl. Instead of wearing loose khakis, I opted for a skinny legging like pair and cuffed them four times. I also couldn't bring myself to sport a bow tie & decided on a statement necklace. Of course, I'd never rock oxfords or loafers, no matter how "in" they are. So pairing this look with leopard flats made it more me. I plan on styling a similar look- I'm thinking jeggings, sandles & a scarf. Stay tuned!!

Top, Pants & Flats: Target
Necklace: Francesca's Collections
Belt: Express
Purse: Louis Vuitton
Sunnies: Dior
Watch: Michael Kors

In case you were wondering, I would not date a guy who dressed like this. I would simply admire his impeccable style from afar or attempt to make him my new bff. Just btw.

  1. I'm such a girly girl too and no matter how trendy, I've always sort of had this aversion to menswear. But I really like how you put this together- borrowing from boys but still making it look feminine and pretty.

    My thoughts are that it's leopard and Louis (which is totally killer by the way!). Hope you had a lovely weekend!
