green prep.





Sunglasses: Target (similar pair here |  Chambray: Marshall's (really wanted this one)
 Sweater: Ann Taylor (similar here| Jeans: The Limited (on sale, yay!) 
Necklace: F21 | Boots: Steve Madden  


Last weekend, the weather was so beautiful that I barely mind the sun spots on all of these photos (hence the sunglasses). This is the first pair of colored jeans I'll be styling. I love the layered prep look. My mom purchased this sweater for me last spring and it's a tad short for my tall frame. Therefore, it's perfect for adding a collared shirt underneath. I chose a chambray shirt to wear underneath (so trendy right now). I think the denim goes nicely with the emerald jeans and kind of creates an opposite effect (denim on top instead of bottom). I chose this statement necklace to tie in the warm tone of my boots while adding a feminine touch to the outfit.

  2. SO so cute! Emerald is the color of the year + colored denim is trendy anyways, so those are a win win ;) Your layers look perfect and a chambray button down seriously looks perfect with anything. LOVE this :)

  6. I love the look of a knitted jumper with a collared shirt underneath, it's so classic and a nice twist on "menswear" style clothes :) Also, I really like the colour of those jeans!
