Fluevog Radios oxfords
Instead of sailor-inspired, I decided to dress up straight out of a Crew catalog. Partially due to the purchase of this chambray shirt over the weekend, and partially because my closet is in total chaos. After seeing Tara's super organized space (in a closet probably the size of mine!), I really feel like I need to kick myself in the butt to get it under control. I had a friend over for the first time this past weekend and I couldn't tell if she was appalled or amazed. I could be on an episode of Hoarders. I need Niecy Nash to come over to my house. I have a biiiig project for my upcoming days off, whew!
I felt very preppy today, despite my rumpled skirt. A nice little statement necklace with some sparkle and maybe also a bowtie would have styled this up totally J. Crew. I added a little more of a twist with my colored socks and my new belt. I don't know how I forgot to mention this in that post, but on my last trip to Anthropologie, I spotted this lonely Looping Lanes belt in the store. I had only seen it on the website and in bloggers' photos, and was really pleased to see it was even better in person!
I feel like it is going to quickly become one of my favorite toppers. I've seen it go girly and romantic, and here, preppy. I can't wait to take it into vintage and Western looks. Hope everyone had a great Monday!
