Prep School


Despite my best efforts, everything I put together these days tends to bend towards prep-school. Last week, when the weather hit the 90’s, I tried to put together something with a cute full skirt, but gave up when everything I came up with screamed  “little school girl”. At my age, when you have to ask your significant other if your outfit is, “school girl in a good way, or a bad way”… something’s up. This is me giving into the urge and letting that inner 12 year old prep-school boy out to play…and damn, does it feel good.


My favorite part of this outfit…this vintage boy’s bowtie! Wearing an untied bowtie draped around a shirt collar can look so casually cool, I’m really looking forward to playing with many more looks with this piece (and maybe even learn to tie it properly).
