The art of being preppy

 Wow, two pants post in a row! I wonder what has gotten over me this past week but I'm sure I will be back in my beloved dresses really really soon. A pussybow blouse + a cardigan (a sparkly, glittery one) instantly preppifies one's outfit, no? I've a long way to go to match up to the standards set by miss blair waldorf but I'm determined to get there someday!

On another more personal note, I rediscovered one of my favourite quotes from Pride and Prejudice and I think it would be absolutely romantic if I could somehow incorporate it in my wedding.
'I cannot fix on the hour, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.'

Do you have a favourite love quote you'll like to share with me

Cute outfit as always!

Sydney said...

OH how cute!! Your outfits always blog my mind! If only I could dress as savvy :)
And as you know, the quote I put on my blog... and "A very small degree of hope is sufficient to cause the birth of love."
And then of course, the Bible is always an excellent source for love quotes because it is written by the creator of love :)

love ur heels n ur preppy look! hows the search for ur pair of perfect white heels for the upcoming wedding?

i love a quote from the song LOVE NEVER FAILS which says, "love keeps no records of wrong" and the quote from the 1970 movie LOVE STORY, where Ali McGraw tells Ryan O'Neal, "Love means never having to say you're sorry". i tink these 2 quotes are really lovely.

i am so jealous of your blouse. ive been looking for one like it for AGES. actually my favorite quotes are all straight out of jane austen haha!
"I could have forgiven his pride had he not mortified mine" is my favorite I think...then again it will change in a few weeks when im not so mad at men ;)

Claggie said...

That blouse is absolutely beautiful. My favorite love quotes come from my favorite books Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close and Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer. Both are definitely worth reading! :)

sarahtay said...

I adore your preppy look! I can't don a preppy look because I'm rather petite, and it'll make me look like a little girl all over again. Haha. :) You're always so daring to try out different looks and you always look good in em!

Thanks for your input for my 21st. It's true, company matters most. :)

Have a lovely evening, S!

Oh, I see a bit of leopard creeping back into your wardrobe. I remember you had the most fabulous leopard accessories - excited to see a splash of it.

And yes, I love the pussybow blouse, and the word 'preppifies'!

I love P&P! What girl doesn't? Such a romantic, classic story.

I've been wearing a lot of pants lately, too. It's just getting really cold here, but tights always work to keep you warm too :) This is such a cute preppy look! Love the studs on the shoes!

I've always wanted a pussybow blouse but all the ones I find are see-through so I don't buy them... I love the blouse combined with the texture of that cardigan!

Oh, we are twins. I'm currently re-reading Pride and Prejudice at the moment also!
