So this is me, trying my hand at fashion. I have been looking at all kinds of fashion photos recently, and decided to put an outfit together. I love to experiment with different looks, but I especially like the preppy look. Being that I am not "preppy" per se, it is sometimes hard to pull off. I think this look is a pretty decent version of the prepster, and I was very comfortable in it. I think it looks like I could possibly jump on a horse and jockey off to hunt a fox or play some polo, which is something a true preppy might want to do. :)
The sweater over the button up shirt is a key element to this kind of style. At least in my mind, the preppy look is alot of layering and different textures. Also, red/navy/white, which are very nautical, can really be used in this look. I love the leg warmers with the boots. I think it adds a little extra pop to the outfit. I need to get a better spot to take pictures. The details just do not show up in the lighting I have here. The coat is a navy blue pea coat with the big buttons and is super cute. You can't make out any details because of the bad lighting. The pants are army green. I got them at TJ Maxx a couple of years ago. I hardly ever get rid of anything, for the fear that I might want to wear it one day. These are super soft and comfortable. I have seen alot of this navy/green combo in pics and I really like it.
I am getting a little tired of my hair this way. I am not good at making hair changes. I have had the same look for years and years, but I have been looking at some different cuts lately. Maybe I can make a change soon. I know it won't be drastic though. I'm not up for that yet.
