Guide to Prep



I love when I have the chance to pull out my most tailored pieces and play up my preppy side. Collared shirts, stripes, navy and red, simple silhouettes, silky fabrics and chunky accessories are the perfect way to polish this look and Chicago summers are my ideal setting. This weekend is supposed to be a little bit cooler {70 degrees} and I hope to be able to pull out some sequins and stripes and hit up the Old Town Art Fair, followed by a celebration for my roommate/bestie who is graduating from Law School!

What you are you up to this weekend? I hope that the sunshine is out and we are all able to enjoy summer skies and warm temps. Happy weekend my dears! xo

I want those Chloe wedges SO BAD! And I also want to go to the Old Town Art Fair but I have a sneaking suspicion my husband isn't going to want to do anything since he's been away from home all week. But I'll try, I mean, our time in Chi-town is running short! Have fun this weekend!

I don't think there's anything you posted that I don't like--I think I'd try and wear all of them (separately of course) haha. Great picks!
Happy Friday!
