A Little Prep in My Step

Well, to be perfectly honest, I don’t even know where to start with this post!  Do I start with the most amazing find EVER from JCPenney or what my sister said to me, that hit me like a style epiphany.  OK, that sounds really cheesy. Who has style epiphanys?!?!?- ha! 
I was talking casually to my sister like sisters do- sometimes we talk deep and sometimes we talk fluff. This was a fluff moment.  I said something like, “I feel like my style is getting a little edgier but I just love prep”.  And she said, “You’ll always have little prep in you.”  She’s right!  Why do I have to choose a style?!?!  I am who I am and that might be preppy, edgy, boho, into colorblock, black and white, gold, silver, etc.  Why do I have to choose?  I love it all!  Thank you, sister.   
So here’s my preppy side coming out.     
 
Outfit Links: 
Jacket- Loft for similar, Shirt- J.Crew, Jeans- AG, Sandals- JCPenney, Sunglasses- Tory Burch, Bag- Louis Vuitton, Watch- Michael Kors, Long Necklace- J. Silver, Disc Necklace- Max and Chloe for similar
Now, for the ultimate find of all finds!  My sister and I were out of town recently and we ran into JCPenney to look for an umbrella.  I’d been hearing about how JCPenney was making some changes by having high-end designers create lines for them, so I was pretty excited to check it out.  I ended up in the shoe section and I found these amazing gold sandals!  I love them.  I’ve been wearing them with everything and every time I wear them I get compliments.  In fact, I was in Neiman Marcus looking for shoes and a customer complimented me on them.  I am always one to tell a person where I found something but I felt like all the salespeople were staring at me, so I didn’t tell her.  Oh how I regret it!  Next time I’ll bend down and whisper where I got them.  

Anyway, JCPenney for $19!  You can’t beat that and I’d been searching for a dressier flat gold sandal!  Oh, they are just so perfect!  Sandals – JCPenney

    haha, my best friend and I have style epiphanies all the TIME! I don’t think it’s fluff either :) Her latest one came from watching the latest James Bond movie, when JB is wearing olive green and it looked so awesome with his sky-blue eyes. She is creating an outfit from that palette.

    I will ALWAYS have some prep in me :) Wore an Izod sweater with a crisp white shirt and skinny jeans today – preppy, yes.
