When I think of preppy style, I somehow always think of stripes. I dunno why really, it must be an automatic connection, jejeje. Today I really wanted to wear this striped dress that my boyfriend L-O-V-E's on me, but with its neon-ish bright colors, it is sometimes hard to think of an outfit that won't look over the top. Then I got the bright idea of wearing it as a striped skirt and going for a preppy look! I love how it turned out :)

  2. Wow, I really like this outfit. You did an excellent job toning down the bright dress and making it both sophisticated and fun! The cherry on top of this outfit is your flower pin...

  4. Pretty wild colors if you ask me! You did a good job pairing it with black shoes and tights which look really sexy btw. This outfit reminds me of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory... makes me want a lolipop and some chocolate candy! Yum!

  5. Wow, this outfit is pretty much perfect. I love how the blazer balances out the stripes of the dress. Great colours as usual, and I love how the overall look is just preppy enough, but not too much!

  6. I love that Target dress underneath. Brilliant way to remix this piece and I especially like that it's playing off of the preppy look.

  7. Yes to all the above comments. Great happy colors. To me, the focal point + prized winner was your imaginative way of having your 2 cute pink collars that match your dress peaking out above your white T-shirt saying ¨hi we 2 little pink collars compliment the pink down below and make this outfit complete¨ very creative move. I love it. jgm

  9. It's ok, I think preppy & stripes too!
    I like the unusual color combination. Who would have thought that pink/orange/navy/black would look so good together?!
