Today’s Prep School Chic OOTD is perfect for the cooler, fall temperatures we have been enjoying over the last few weeks. With the leaves changing and my fall wardrobe resurrected from storage, I am feeling a little bit more in the “fall” mood. Last weekend, I took a trip to go horseback riding with the girls. So much fun! How long has it been since you have been on a horse? At least 15 years for me! I highly recommend you take advantage of the lovely fall weather we have been having and go horseback riding, apple picking, or corn maze-ing– so much fun to do in the fall.
Miss King is back and more fashionable than ever! We are wearing complementary looks, mixing vintage and modern.
My look (on the left) combines prints and textures. My Tommy Hilfiger short sleeve sweater is layered over a Forever 21 plaid shirt and blue and white striped Zara silk skirt. I complete the look with the famed Tommy Hilfiger “Duck Boot” and (though you can barely see it) a Tommy Hilfiger bow-tie. Every year when the September Issues come out, I am most in anticipation of the Tommy Hilfiger ad. I have included some of my favorite ads from over the years. Am I the only one who envisions my ideal group of friends looking exactly like these models do? It’s like he designs for the All-American prep-school chic student. Ahh, I miss college (not). (For more on this amazing Tommy Hilfiger “Duck Boot” check out this post).
Miss King (on the right) is wearing a mix of designers including my OTHER favorite “prep school chic” designer: Ralph Lauren (particularly the “Rugby” line). These adorable cropped pants are part of the Rugby line a few years back. I used to go to their store in Boston on Newberry Street, but it has since closed! Her ascot red silk blouse is by Zara and her luxurious cropped sleeve rabbit fur is from Intermix. Her shoes are by none other than Christian Louboutin, and her cuff earrings are vintage– one of my very favorite pieces in her wardrobe. We bought them together at one of my favorite vintage shops in NYC that has CLOSED (what’s with all of these stores closing?)! The store was called Frock and it was truly an amazingly curated collection of high-end vintage. So sad to hear that it is now closed. (I bought this Thierry Mugler Dress there, too!)
