Bloggers Do It Better: Ready for (Prep) School

20 May

It’s almost summer, but I’m pretty sure I’m ready to go back to school. Prep school, that is. I’m a public school gal, but I think I could get used to this look. The very lovely (and smart!) Kristina from Pretty, Shiny, Sparkly offered up her “Bloggers Do It Better” challenge with the prep school look. I do admit I was a bit apprehensive about this look since no one in my office wears a tie. Once I tried a few options, though, I was sold. Loved it! Not an everyday event, but was definitely worth it for a change of pace! Plus, now I feel like I have a bigger wardrobe since apparently I can raid husband’s side of the closet for inspiration. So what do YOU think? Have you ever worn something that belongs to your husband / boyfriend / brother / dad?

P.S. Dad, you have a way better selection of ties than John. So watch out next time I’m in town!

P.P.S. I so wish I had THIS watch to wear with this outfit!  Note to self:  Wear more accessories!

    Your bright green cardi and that tie is an amazing combo.
