Grown-Up Prepster | White Shorts and a Blazer

Happy Monday lovelies! Did you have a good weekend?



I wore this outfit for a girls brunch with my friends recently. When I showed up, my best friend laughed and said that I reminded her of her days at prep school. "But in a good way," she assured me. Something about her tone tells me otherwise though haha





Prep-school or not, I think this was a good look for a late-summer brunch. I wanted to wear white one last time before it was "taboo" to do so (although I wear white after labor day all the time). What do you think?




Happy Labor day!

Top: Target blouse, Forever 21 blazer
Bottoms: Forever 21 shorts
Accessories: Forever 21 bag
Shoes: Steve Madden Getta pumps

  5. Yes I would have to agree with your friend. I describe your outfit as more of a happy-go-luck semi casual prep style! It is neat and ideal!

  16. Personally, I love the prep look, and I'm not anywhere near the East Coast. I really like this look--trade out the shorts for a pencil skirt and you could go to work!

  17. That definitely is a compliment, because I love the older, more mature look of the "prep school" attire. You look great!

    Have a great day!

  18. I think you look fantastic rocking the "prep" look. I wouldn't have put a blazer with shorts, but I think I'm going to have to give that a try before it's too cold here to wear shorts.

  22. You look very young, but in a positive way, and I mean it. White is a hot trend this season, so you can wear it every day and look super cool!
