Try-it-out Tuesday: preppy artist

Michael Kors petite sweater, Macy's
Kenneth Cole Reaction boys' buttondown, Ross
pup necklace, gift

     I love that this bright pink sweater does not pick up any of the colors in this shirt. Matchy-matchy can be overrated sometimes, right? :)
     This buttondown is one of my all-time favorite purchases from Ross (besides the same ol' jeans that I just about live in). Who can be sad when wearing rainbow-colored stripes? This shirt also makes me feel like a artist, albeit a preppy one. I think I'd really prefer to be a bohemian artist, one of those ethereal beings who floats around in long gauzy skirts and a swirl of silk scarves, but I'd need to be a foot taller to pull off that look. So preppy it is.

  5. I do agree with you on matchy matchy being too much sometimes, I really like it when people pick an opposite color from the pattern to wear, its a little more modern feeling. (And again, wow, bright colors look amazing on you!)

  8. Thanks, Dawn! I almost donated the necklace because it's not the kind of jewelry I usually like, but I've figured out that it's kind of fun. :)

  10. Ooh ... modern - I like the sound of that. :) And I think the red in the shirt and bright pink of the sweater mismatch quite harmoniously.
