LOTD :: Scholastic Chic

"Scholastic Chic"


HAPPY HUMP DAY! To all my Fashionista’s out there…xoxo…

For today’s look of the day, I decide to go with a more dressy approach on my work ensemble.  What better way to this than to sport a blazer and button up combination but with a preppy collegiate feel that is both polished and casual.

We start off with a white button up by River Island as base that I paired with dark wash denim high rise skinnies by H&M.  I tucked the shirt into the denim skinnies and buttoned it all the way to the top for a more polished feel; I then belted the skinnies with a vintage 2 toned leather waist belt by Salvatore Ferragamo which is a Hand Me Down.  As the temperatures here in the UK is not going any higher than 15 Celsius I threw on a cardigan by New Look that has a cricket / polo trim design for extra warmth.  Lastly, a preppy collegiate look cannot be complete without a blazer, the one I have on is by River Island and its made out of jersey type material and have a “school” emblem on the left chest which adds the perfect touch of preppiness todays look.

On bottom, I went with the same colour pallet as the belt and bag with a dark brown lace up brogues by New Look.  You can never go wrong with a brogue pairing as they are very versatile and the intricate design adds a subtle touch of lux. 

For accessories, I went with gold toned jewellery pieces via a variety of pins and brooch by Accessorize along with a triangle bow collar tips and simple analogue watch both by ASOS.

Lastly, the chosen bag to go with today's pairing is my ZARA briefcase style tote to continue on the polished feel and add a collegiate / corporate vibe.

That's it for today’s LOTD and until the next time…FASHION IS THE DICTATOR OF TASTE! ...XOXO...
