BDIB: Prep School

Hey ladies!

I am participating in the Bloggers Do it Better: Prep School challenge. The challenge: wear a tie or bow tie and a blazer, cardigan or vest of some sort! This is my first and I had so much fun pulling together this menswear inspired outfit. This is not a style I would normally wear, but I really liked it, so I may just done some more ties and sneak this look in for work sometime.

Here's what I wore:

  25. Yes!!! I loves this!!! The colors are soft and they compliment one another so well! Never thought that brown and pink would go so well together! I never think to look for ties while thrifting.
