Preppified Denim


When I did spring cleaning a few weeks ago and tore apart my closet, I discovered that I own not 3, not 4, but 5 striped blue and white oxford shirts. Although I got rid of a ton of excess clothing, I couldn’t part with any of these classic tops.

I play favorites of course and right now this super soft, non-rigid version is at the top of my list. It’s not quite as thick as most oxfords and it gives me room to move. I wear striped oxfords with pretty much anything but had recently challenged myself to make this pair of shredded jeans look preppy. With my new chic orange bag, a white blazer, and classicly preppy striped shirt, I think I may have done it!

    I love how this look combines structure & ease. I would definitely wear a version of this ensemble to a Saturday brunch date. Happy Wednesday!
