I'm a prep

IMG_9528IMG_9532

Dress: Brook's Brothers {Thrifted for $4!!!}, Sweater: Gap, Belt: Thrifted, Shoes: F21, Scarf: Old Navy, Earrings: Flirties

This outfit was most definitely destined to be worn to a country club for a fabulous brunch. Oh yes, it was perfectly meant to be paired with crepes and strawberries and champagne {or in my case, sparkling juice}. And then, perhaps, for a few holes of golf or a game of badminton. Unfortunately, nobody got the outfit's memo. And no one took it out for a fabulous brunch. Or a round of golf. Not even a measly strawberry.

Nope, this outfit took it's little self to work and sat in a very uncomfortable desk for what seemed like a very, very long time. Next time, little seersucker dress, we will at least make it to a picnic. Pinky promise.

Love,

Ramsey

I think that dress is amazing, and even more amazing that you got it for four bucks girl!! So jealous!

Someday you will get to wear it to a country club or a round of golf :)

Gentri said...

I absolutely love that outfit. I'm sad you didn't get to wear it to a country club. Next time. :) I'm also super duper jealous of how springy it looks there! We got another dusting of snow. Not much. It'll be gone in a couple hours. But still...

Pineapple said...

I LOVE this outfit. The seersucker is just too sweet.

Also, I copied your outfit in "Yes I Did" (the outfit with the two skirts? Awesome one.) and blogged it in this post:

I just thought it was fair to let you know. : P
(I also linked to the specific outfit and to the blog overall.)

The weather is so lovely and delightful and splendid. Just like you and your outfit! Perhaps a little jaunt on a sailboat? Er, I mean yacht. A catamaran, yes, a catamaran. The would be fetch.

You are quite possibly the cutest "dressed for a country club but not at one" person ever.

Rissy said...

I think this outfit is just perfect! I kind of really want it... but i think you wear it better than I would. However, if I ever meet Mr.Right and he happens to be quite WASPy I will be emailing you for advice haha

Melissa said...

Oooh, I want to go on a picnic now! Looove your oxfords m'dear.

Sandy a la Mode said...

you are totally a cute prep! love the scarf!

Macy Dawn said...

Ditto that this dress is a SWEET find! I have had "thrifting" on my to-do list for this month- it's one of the greatest times to check out the racks because everyone is spring cleaning.

S. said...

I love this look on you! Super cute.

As a funny aside, seersucker has it's own special workplace tradition in DC -- on Thursdays in the summer, a whole group of Senators wears seersucker suits on the Senate floor. I'm not sure when it started, but it's awfully funny to see these serious people in these pastel suits...

Tina said...

Great outfit! I think it is perfect for work on a nice Spring day. Hope you'll take it out to have more fun next time =/

Beautiful outfit! I just discovered your blog via Steffy's Pros and Cons and thought I'd stop by and say hello! I really love the way you put together outfits. And a Brooks Brother's dress for $4! That is awesome!

Allie said...

How long ago did you purchase those oxfords? I've been looking for a great pair of nude or light brown ones (but so far no luck) and I love the ones you're wearing.
