happy Monday ladies! it’s a new week, and style at a certain age is back at it. over the past few weeks, i’ve had the opportunity to return to my fashion roots. for my regulars, y’know that that means preppy. for my new followers, guilty as charged: i’m an inner prep. now that fall is in full swing, it’s so easy to dress the part. with the leaves turning and my leg feeling better than ever, i find myself pulling out a pair of crisp khakis and a warm sweater and heading outside. i’m so thankful i can take oscar for walks again. keeping that spirit, today we’re showing you how to dress preppy this fall.
we’re featuring mostly Talbots today. i’m loving these relaxed chinos: the embroidered elephant is so fun. and if you know me, you know how much i love animal prints. i’ve paired the pants with an olive mockneck sweater. olive is a perfect fall color and goes exceptionally well with anything khaki. that’s why i pulled in this khaki collared jacket and matching slip-ons. (one of my favorite pair of shoes this fall!) try as you might, today’s OOTD is such a tried and true combination, it’s almost impossible not to look good in it.
if and when you wear primary neutrals, it’s always good to spice things up a bit. one easy way to do this is with your accessory choices. IMO, my camo tote bag pushes this outfit over the top. throwing in an interesting pattern overtop a basically plain base creates visual interest. (but if a color pop is more of your thing, you can easily add a red, orange, or yellow bag to make today’s OOTD really shine.)
