I let my inner penguin shine with this fun, preppy outfit on the last day of fashion week.
This amazing 'grand room' print skirt was the springboard for the outfit. The print on the skirt took me back to a childhood fantasy of being a princess that lived in a cool English manor (haven't we all been there?). Like Don Draper I derive a lot of inspiration from nostalgia, and was sold on this skirt upon first glimpse.
Fashion week outfit sourcing showed me that a shirt is not just a shirt when preppy collars and black contrast sleeves are involved. This Lover piece seemed like the only logical partner for my nostalgia skirt due to its 'preppy chic' quality. I love when classic, staple pieces are given a new spin.
