Summer Clothing Idea

Every once in a while, I like to put together outfits that I might just wear. Yesterday the bug hit me when I was looking at some styles Anthropologie posted.


Though called Preppy, it is a look I would wear with some minor changes. The jeans could be white, navy, or black and look great. But I will remain with white for the time being.

The top is cute and is made from silk. There are owls in the center of each one of those circles.

but I am not sure it is me. You could make it out from Simplicity 2614 View C (OOP but still for sale on the Simplicity website until gone)

I would be more inclined to make it from Simplicity 2892 View A or B

S2892                S2892a

My fabric choice would be a natural fibre in a plain colour. I cannot wear yellow so I would choose a bright pink or a bright blue or a dark red. If I chose a print, it would be a small one but I think I would love to have it plain and let the colour do the talking.

The earrings would remain similar or be a small hoop. And the shoes, well I don’t wear the type shown. Just not me. I would go for something like this

gatsby shoes

Or something like this if the top was red.


And the bag, well the colour could match the shoes or be striped in the shoe colour and white. McCalls 5914


Or this one Butterick 5109


Have fun putting together your look.
