prep it up

Temt top / Topshop jeans / Sperry Top-Sider shoes

A basic outfit for a day of shopping. Lately I've been straying from the frills and bows in favor of simpler pieces...

When I was in high school in the States, Sperrys boat shoes were the biggest fad on campus. Pair them with a North Face jacket and flared jeans, and you pretty much had it made. Back then I swore up and down that I'd never sacrifice my standards and buy Sperrys... I wore Chucks and skinny jeans and basked in my alternative-ness. As you can tell by this post, I've swallowed my words. You can't really satisfy the prep aesthetic without a good pair of boat shoes, and these are cute and comfortable and...on sale! My own sartorial holy trinity. ;)
