Again and Again

Augh! I've been staring at my computer for days now...and not in the fun "oooo look at this street style! ooo I want that dress!" kind of way. This is the "forecast your first 2 years sales analysis" kind of way. Believe me, not nearly as fun! But I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, soon I'll be booking clients and styling my butt off!

I'm actually cheating with this outfit today, I wore it yesterday...shhhh don't tell! Currently I'm sporting an uber stylish ensemble of jeans and my favorite AA hoodie! I've been in and out of Home Depot all day and installing kitchen cabinets, so I made an executive decision this a.m. to opt for function over fashion. Sometimes a girl has to be reasonable!

I'm a sucker for preppy styles, as much as I try to mix things up and bring out my inner grunge I usually feel most comfortable looking like I'm about to hop on my pony (which I don't have). That whole prep-school, english-rose type thing, I guess it's in my blood. So put me in a beige sweater and a blue button down and I'm happy! I also LOVE this necklace, I should've taken a close-up of it, the shades of grey vary and it just makes me smile when I look at it!

Sweater: J Crew
Shirt: Gap
Leggings: Le Chateau
Boots: Aldo
Necklace: Accessorize
Belt: Vintage

Also, I've been trying to do the Alexander Wang braid for a while now...it's hard! I have fairly long hair but with all the layers the braid just slowly falls out and after an hour I'm left looking a bit mad! Not quite the cool, easy look I was hoping to achieve! Does anyone have any suggestions??



  1. Very preppy and what a gorgeous necklace! Where is accessorize? I really want one.

    I don't have any tips with the hair, I'm bad at the braid as well. Have you tried a mousse before blow-drying it?

  2. This equestrian/romantic look is so great! The necklace really pulls it all together.

    As for the braid, maybe put a tiny bit of gel/mousse in before hand to give it that extra hold, or spritz it with some hairspray after you've got it all together...I used to use Biolage when I had long hair, and it was marvelous!


Thanks for all your lovely comments, they never fail to make my day! xx
