Okay it's been spring for like 6 days already... why is it still freezing cold?! Due to the horrible cold (and windy) weather today, I had to compromise by wearing a skirt with tights instead of a skirt with high-socks as I had planned, but my outfit was still super preppy and cute:
I've been so obsessed with the preppy look lately! It's so polished and classy. Today, I wore a plain white button-down. This top is really simple, so it's easy to wear with a lot of different pieces and it's definitely a must-have for your wardrobe. The top I'm wearing (from Nordstrom) is no longer sold, but I really like this Three-Quarter Sleeve Stretch Perfect Shirt (originally $64.00, on sale $54.00) from J.Crew. The quality of this shirt is amazing, it doesn't wrinkle easily, and it can be paired with anything from sweaters to skirts and even with shorts!
Okay, so I know I bought this leather skirt like FOREVER ago (well, over Winter Break, but that's a really long time in the fashion world) and I know I've already posted it at least twice, but I'm still obsessed with this Whit Leather Skirt ($498.00) . Just because it's old doesn't mean it's old news! Leather skirts aren't just a winter look, they can be worn during spring and summer too! (Just a tip for wearing black leather in the summer: make sure to pair it with SUPER SUPER bright colors like lime green, neon pink, and orange because wearing black leather with darker or toned down colors is so wintery. The bright pop of colors makes wearing leather not seem so "heavy.") For some reason, this skirt didn't photograph very well today, but it looked so cute with my white button-down top!
I just purchased this Style & Co. 2 for 1 Colorblock Belt Set ($21.98) yesterday, and I was so excited to wear my new fuchsia belt today. It looks like red in this picture, but in reality, it is bright pink! I'm in love with it. This belt added the perfect pop of color to an otherwise simple outfit. This belt set comes in fuchsia/silver and black/white (I bought both because I couldn't resist!)
I love my French Sole Season Flats ($130.00). First of all, they are so comfortable, I could literally walk around Manhattan for an entire day and my feet would not hurt one bit. Second, they go with EVERYTHING (literally EVERYTHING). I love wearing them with skirts, but they also look fabulous with a simple pair of pants, and they can be worn during every season (although I don't suggest wearing them if there is snow on the ground because your feet might get cold!). I can't stop recommending these shoes; they are the perfect ballet flat because they are comfortable, flexible, and long lasting!
To tie the outfit together, I am wearing a pearl necklace and pearl bracelets from my personal collection. Because what's an outfit with some pearls?! I'm hoping it gets warm soon because I'm really tired of dressing for the winter!
