There’s nothing like a long weekend to prepare you for the school week…or to encourage procrastination. I only had one class yesterday, so my “free” time yesterday was spent doing the homework I had meant to do on Saturday. Luckily for me, I only have two classes today (and one of them is volleyball). Here’s the breakdown:

Sweater Top: Garage sale (Lauren Ralph Lauren)
Shorts: Garage sale
Sandals: Target
Bracelet: Elder Beerman
Watch: Garage sale
Ring: American Eagle
Earrings: Garage sale

I’ve always been a big fan of preppy items, and Lauren Ralph Lauren always makes me drool whenever I’m in Macy’s. I always want to buy everything they have! I was pretty happy to find this short-sleeved sweater at a garage sale this summer; it reminds me of prepster meets cruisewear. Big fan.

Had it been any cooler out, I’d definitely have paired this with jeans, some cute red flats, and maybe my red blazer. Going for the French look. Think Kate Moss in that red-piped navy blazer she wore as my inspiration. Unfortunately for me, it wasn’t cooler out, but that’s okay because fall will be here sooner rather than later.

Also, I didn’t really want to mix metals on this outfit because of the gold detail that was already on the sweater. I decided to stick to true preppy roots, hence the gold watch, gold ring, and gold earrings. As a side note, expect to see these earrings close up very soon; they’re just another one of my obsessions.
