Preppy Weekend


My internal dialogue this morning as I was laying in bed consisted of me fighting with myself if it was too much to go ahead and dress for the weekend. I had laid out a dress to wear today but I just wasn’t feeling it. But shorts? Shorts felt rebellious and I liked it. 

I won, if you can’t tell. The weekend calls for shorts and that’s the strongest argument I’d heard all day. 


Blouse: J.Crew

Sweater: Gap

Shorts: Old Navy

Tote: Madewell

Shoes: Sperry’s 

Earrings: Anthropologie (Similar)

  18. I am in desperate need of a blouse like that. I don't have enough versatile items in my wardrobe, and something like that would go with everything.
    I wish I could wear shorts before the weekend! But work disallows it. Oh, well.
    I love the color of your sweater!

    It's not quite warm enough to wear shorts here yet, but I LOVE this outfit. These are great colours together, so I may sneak in a pair of light jeans and do something similar.
