Prep in Your Step

Nov 5, 2013

HAT: Urban Outfitters| SHOES: Urban Outfitters| SKIRT: thrifted (similar: here and here| TIGHTS: Forever 21| SHIRT: c/o Flicka och pojke

When I first discovered Flicka och pojke I was all "goldmine!" They're a store that focuses on the preppier things in life, stocking their hangers with vintage Ralph Lauren, Brooks Brothers, Yves Saint Laurent, and more. When I was first scrolling through their picks, I was kind of reminded of the polo match scene in Pretty Woman- it's all clean lines, tailored silhouettes, and preppy but sporty blazers, knit sweaters, and skirts. I could so imagine the women wearing those same blazers while holding their champagne glasses and patching up the holes in the grass with their tasseled shoes or block-heeled sandals! 

My pick from their store was this fun red and white striped shirt- I love how the stripes are going in different directions! I wanted to keep it neutral but add a quirky twist to it, so I went the preppy route and paired it with a denim skirt and a ribbon tied into a bow at the collar. But then to make things a little more interesting, I popped a Hawaiian print cap on just to spice things up ;)

  16. This striped shirt really is awesome. The different direction-ed stripes are a nice twist on a classic print. It's kind of nautical - especially paired with your blue denim skirt. Nautical is always good in my book!


Talk, talk, talk!
