Style Me Friday: Preppy with a POP of Red!

So in my efforts to play around with the mere 50 pieces in my closet, I'm linking up with Eboni from Fashionista Next Door to play the game of Style Me Friday. You take an inspiration photo, pull pieces from your closet and wallah! Fashionably Fresh! This week's inspirational photo:


The leopard handbag immediately caught my eye! Rawr! Then I thought, okay maybe I could pull this off....this should be easy... Not the case with yours truly and her 50 piece wardrobe! I pulled out every red piece,  every leopard piece, every jean piece I had, every passable, this could work, maybe, I think and finally just decided on this! Do you recognize that shirt??



LoveN it? or LeaveN it?


I can't say that I'm over the moon about this outfit, but for the purpose of mimicking the inspiration photo - it works. Possibly its the jean and the red that simply just dont match in my mind, but I think this is why I had such a hard time putting together an ensemble. I really wasn't inspired by it! So here's the deal with my lack-of-scenery-photo: My husband got a job in ATL and I am still in FL teaching. So, me and my lovely counter top make it happen! MAUH! 

Blazer: Vintage
Shirt: Cotton
Belt: Vintage
Jeans: Cotton
Shoes: Rampage
Handbag: Vintage Dooney bag
Watch: Micheal Kors
Earrings: @MissHippieGirl
Necklace: Street Vendor, Thailand


Also thought to wear it with a denim scarf sanz the blazer!

Which rendition do you like better? 

With love to last a lifetime, Kay!

  9. Awww, I actually love both looks, and I think you look super cute! But, I know how you feel...some inspiration looks just don't resonate with me...hopefully this week's pick will be better :)

  11. I like the top with the red. I think it gives off something that the inspiration photo didn't give. I really like that top..as in if you get to Atlanta and don't want it anymore.....
