Get the Look- Prep School

Left: Blazer // Oxford Shirt // Skirt // Boots // Belt // Tote
Right: Sweater // Skirt // Belt // Boots

When I saw the image above from Mango’s Fall 2012 Lookbook, I was instantly smitten.  I mean, how perfectly prep school are these looks?!  I love both, but I think the one of the left is my favorite. Blazer + oxford shirt + polka dot skirt + boots= one sharp outfit!

I tried to recreate these looks for less (see links above), but you can also shop these outfits directly from Mango’s website.  This picture is definitely some great fall outfit inspiration- I’m getting more and more excited for cooler temperatures by the minute!

Tell me: Which do you prefer, the look on the left or the one on the right?

    I love the shape of the skirt on the right, but the outfit on the left would be more practical for our climate … :) They’re both lovely. :)

  5. Definitely excited for the classy version of the schoolgirl look this fall. These almost remind me of a more grown-up Blair Waldorf look :)
