Bloggers Do It Better. Prep School. I was stumped when I first read about this one. All the fashion challenges I have done so far have not been much of a stretch...all white, floral, maxi dress. These are part of my style. However, prep school. I do not own a tie, I am not super preppy. Not my cup of tea.
That being said, I had so much fun with this! Since I don't have a tie I had to get creative. This vest has a thick ribbon tied around the shoulder. I took it off and viola, tie...kind of. I had all the pieces for this challenge. Blazer, vest, button up I just don't usually pair them together.
I really wanted to wear a skirt for this but this skirt is far too scandalous, length wise, to wear to school. Especially bare legged with a blazer-vest combo. Way to school-girl for a school teacher. :) So after the photos I had to switch to grey cords for school. I got the best comments from my students!!! I was told I looked like a general and a Pokemon trainer. Then I was asked why I was dressed for 80's day. Finally I was told I looked like an American. ????? But I guess the last one let me know the outfit fit the challenge. What is more stereotypically all American looking than prep school? What do you think?
