Bloggers Do It Better: Prep School

{jeans:  ny&c  I  top:  jcrew  I  pumps:  jessica simpson  I  tie:  thrift/chris}

so this was my first foray into Bloggers Do It Better corralled by Kristina of Pretty Shiny Sparkly.  this sartorial challenge mirrors the ever amazing Everybody Everywear.  the idea of participating in an event where a trend is chosen and a bajillion of other gals work their stuff makes me happy.   and as much as my twelve year old self will disagree, i love participating.  and participating while wearing a tie, well that is something 12 year old katie is just going to have to deal with.

i think i miiight have slacked a bit on the exact definition of this challenge - prep school - as i could have worn a white sweater while carrying a racket as i hung with the tommy hilfiger crew, but screw it.  i love wearing ties. in ANY fashion.

and while chris might have been weirded-out this morning as we were standing together on the train in almost matching outfits i held my head up high.  whatevs.  ties are rad.   maybe i should say ties one more tie.  i mean time.


oh yeah, and if you're still reading...i just wanted to keep it real with you...i walked to and from work in my loafers...

Totally cute. This was fun wasn't it? You look great in your shots. I love your shoes--both pairs! (currently in my slippers because I wore heels all day too) ;-)

Oh I love the pop of yellow from the heels! Definitely adds a bit of edge to the whole prep look. I like it!

Also, your puppies? Oh my soul adorable!!

Love the yellow heels, but I definitley don't blame you for wearing the loafers for all the walking. I mean, do you want to break your ankle? Uh, no, so I won't judge;) Have a nice weekend!
