Prepster Businessman Strikes Again...

Worn to work Friday, June 10




Skirt-Anthropologie/Shirt-Zara/Shoes-OTBO via Lori's/Jewelry H&M/Bag-Fossil

Know what??...I love this outfit...I love how it makes me feel!
This outfit started with the skirt...comfy, has pockets and is one of my favorites.  Then came the striped shirt...I don't wear it a ton, I think that comes from decades of never being able to wear striped top because of my old big boobs.  But, now that they are smaller, I am embracing the stripes.  This skirt is a little big in the waist, so I added the braided belt.  Jewelry wise, I thought it would be fun to add a funky, but not huge necklace and clashing pattern bracelets...the leopard one is one of my faves.  Since it was not supposed to be real warm, about 55 degrees, I opted for my brogues.  Let me profess my love for the brogue.  They make me feel like a school girl, a prep...there was this girl in college I always wanted to be friends with and she always wore brogues.  I wear them and I feel powerful, like a businessman who just closed a deal!  Weird...I know!!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!!

Love this outfit, too! The stripes + denim skirt are so perfect, and the brogues really make it different. Great combinations :)

You look fabulous, I love this whole outfit! That skirt is great and I'm enamored with the addition of the brogues.

The combo of everything together just really works. You wouldn't think it would - but it comes together great! I especially like the stripes / polkadots / leopard.

I used to not think i could wear horizontal stripes either, but now I love them, and if they make me look bigger, oh well.
