Fourth of July OOTD!

Hey everyone,

One of my favorite holidays is coming up–the Fourth of July! I have always loved checking out fireworks and attending cook outs with friends and family to celebrate America’s birthday. This year I was very upset to find out that I’ll be spending the day time this Thursday, stuck inside, working… BUT! I won’t let that stop me from getting festive! Check out this red, white, and blue outfit I plan on wearing to work!

Enjoying Spring

springtime

 

After what seems like an endless winter, spring finally seems to be in the air. The surest sign for me? I don’t have to wear a jacket anymore! I am beyond happy to start breaking out the shorts and sandals. The flowers are starting to come up and yesterday (much to my delight) was the first day I was able to sit out on the quad with my homework. Getting some sun felt SO good.

Yesterday, my boyfriend reluctantly agreed to be featured in an outfit of the day post. He just looked so casually springy that I had to share. So, here’s what we were wearing:

On Matt: shirt, Lands’ End Canvas; shorts, American Eagle; boat shoes, Dockers.

On me: sunglasses, Maui Jim; shirt, J.Crew Factory; shorts, Old Navy; boat shoes, Sperry.

How have you been enjoying the weather?

Fashion Challenge: 4th of July edition!

I already posted this on my own blog, but I thought it might be a good post for The Prep Crew, too!

On Tuesday, I’m heading down to Cape Cod to spend the fourth of July and the following weekend with Matt and his family. It’s going to be a week filled with baseball, fireworks, and the beach…three of America’s favorite pastimes!

I was making a packing list of things and clothes to bring last night when I got a really interesting idea. Since it’s the Fourth of July and since I looooove wearing red, white, and blue together (it’s one of my favorite color combos), wouldn’t it be fun to pack nothing but clothes that are those colors and mix and match? So that’s the plan. I’ve got plenty of items that are either red or navy blue, and I’ve got tons of white staples to pair them with. Basically I’m trying my best to make Betsy Ross proud. It’s going to be fun.

Here are some of the pieces I’ll be playing with–

It’s going to be a fun week!

Are you planning on going all out for “Independence Week”? It’s turning into a bit of a competition between me, my mom, and my sister! Leave your outfit ideas in the comments!

OOTD: Sister edition!

It’s a chilly, sort-of gloomy day here at the beach, so my sister and I have resorted to wearing long sleeves instead of bathing suits. It’s a tough compromise, but as my boyfriend wisely pointed out to me this morning, a day on vacation–even a yucky one–is better than a day at work. Amen to that!

 

What I’m wearing:

    • Top: Old Navy. I fiiiinally got a chambray shirt after lusting after them for a year or two. Yeah, I’m late to the party, but I’m glad I finally got there!
    • Shorts: Lands’ End Canvas. LOVE THESE! They’re always look brighter than I think they really are, but they definitely punch up an outfit!
    • Accessories: green beaded necklace (I’ve had it since eighth grade!), Michael Kors watch, sailor’s rope bracelet from Kennebunkport, J.Crew madras headband, and tortoise shell sunglasses from Marshalls, signet and claddagh rings.

On my sister:

    • Bicycle t-shirt: J.Crew
    • Sweater: Lands’ End
    • Jeans: Hollister
    • Metallic boat shoes: Sperry Topsider
    • Accessories: Ann Taylor belt, Swarovski ring, necklace from Copper Mt., Colorado.

I hope that the weather’s better wherever you are!

Outfit of the day: 12/22/2011

Merry Christmas everyone!  Here’s my outfit from today.  All I’ve done today is go to lunch with my sister & go to work, but I am obsessed with this new sweater I got from J.Crew yesterday!

1. Gray honeycomb sweater: J.Crew.  Run run RUN to your closest J.Crew – these are on sale & with the extra 30 percent off at J.Crew right now, they’re 50 percent off!

2. Pink oxford collar shirt: Ralph Lauren.  You can never have too many of these staple shirts.  I own tons of them and they last forever.

3. Jeans: J.Crew Factory.  I’m so short even J.Crew’s short jeans are too long on me, but I’m so picky about jeans, I can’t find any other reasonably priced pairs that I like.

4. Green top-siders: Sperry, circa 2004.  But, really, I got these for Christmas when I was 12.  Just goes to show some things never go out of style.
