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.

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.

  7. I purchased these sandals from JC Penny just the other day! Love them! Thank you so much for posting about them! Beyond comfortable and for $19!!!
