In my high school days, I was drawn to preppy styles. I liked button-down shirts and polos, even though a majority of my wardrobe was jeans and t-shirts. I’m not that into the prep-school look anymore, but on occasion, I like to take cues from it. When I saw this lovely striped cashmere sweater on Ebay selling at a mere $20, I couldn’t resist. I’ve already planned several outfits with it. It’s delightfully soft and quite flattering.
Because I didn’t want this outfit to be an overload of blue, I added the goldenrod brooch and bracelet to break things up. I definitely need to get a lot more brooches.
