Windowpanes

The weather has been cooling down considerably over the last few weeks, but I’m still posting stragglers from late September – early October, so please bear with me through some very unseasonal outfits.

Anyway, this outfit looks like it’s been matched very carefully, right? The eyelets on my top match the plaid on my pants, and the blue pendant matches the blue loafers. The truth, though, is that I put almost no thoughts into it at all, other than, “Oh yeah, those will go together.” It’s one of those outfits that just came about naturally, which goes to show, sometimes it’s best to go with your instincts and not to overthink it.

Prepster

Though I wear a lot of preppy things – button-up shirts, stripes, loafers, oxfords, etc. – I never describe my style as “preppy”. To be honest, I find preppy style a bit boring, and I’d like to think my style is more eclectic than that (which is another way of saying I don’t like to confine myself to a rigidly defined “style”; I just wear whatever the hell I want). However, occasionally I do put together a pretty straightforward preppy outfit, like this one.  I mean, all that’s missing is a pearl necklace, right?


Blue Suede Shoes

So 2/3 of this outfit are actually hand-me-downs from my sister – only the jeans are mine originally. That’s the perk of having a sister who likes shopping, is the same size as you, and has more or less the same taste as you do. Though I have to say, her preference for V-neck white button-ups is inexplicable. I don’t like V-neck tops that much, yet she tried to pass another one to me when she gave me this pair of loafers. I refused, because I already have one, which, of course, also came from her. But I have an inexplicable preference for blue plaid button-ups too, so who I am to talk, right?
