Shen Dove Style: Preppy

Thursday, April 19, 2012


Shirt: Loft (old); Skirt: UO; Jewelry: borrowed; Shoes: Target
outfit 4-18-12

I have no problem with giving away clothing that haven't gotten frequent wear, I don't have a walk-in closet after all. As a result of my willingness to part with items, I have had a remorse over some clothing that I gave away or sold that I should have held onto for another season or two until the trend circled back again.  I almost gave this shirt away in a cleaning frenzy last season, but am happy I held onto it. It's a keeper, at least for the time being. 


This outfit was inspired by an outfit in the spring J. Crew catalog. I'm afraid, I can't show you a picture of the inspiration because I have since recycled it; it didn't make the "keep" cut when I recently cleaned off my coffee table...

You look sassy and beautiful as always.  My husband lets go of items very easily too.  It's his minimalist nature.  However, once in a while he'll have similar feelings of regret for having let go of something too easily.  It's alright, though.  That trend will eventually pass too.

The JCrew catalog is the best for inspiration! I just bought a similar button down and you've given me  great way to style it :)
