My style back in the day used to be preppy. I wore a pearl necklace everyday, popped my collar, lived at the Lilly Pulitzer store, and had one too many argyle sweaters. My style has evolved over the years into a more feminine, New York chic. And by New York chic I mean wearing all black with a splash of ruffle. I am more trendy (but not fast fashion) with my choice of attire now. Sometimes, however, I like to let my freak flag fly by bringing the prep back in. The preppy look will always be in style and one that I will go back to time and time again.

 When I first saw this houndstooth skirt, what really sold me on it is the flare detail at the bottom. The simple detail makes this skirt go from day to night. Or in my case the perfect Thanksgiving outfit. This is exactly what I would wear to Thanksgiving, a little dressy but still casual. I may switch out the white sweater for a blue turtleneck. Although the white sweater really does bring out the colors of the skirt. My loafers I have been wearing non-stop since I bought them. Perfect for any and all fall season attire. This preppy fall look is one that I am going to wear during the crisp days and nights. I need some prep back in my step.
