Although my personal style changes from day to day, I will always have a piece of preppy in me. When I was in middle school, all of my friends were wearing Baby Phat jeans and Jordan’s while I was wearing GAP, Abercrombie & Fitch and H&M. My sister used to buy my clothes and refused to buy me any urban wear so I was the only 10-year-old in my class wearing button down shirts and argyle sweaters. At the time, I hated my clothes and always felt like an outcast.
While I eventually learned to love my wardrobe, I also accepted not conforming to the norm. My sister taught me a valuable lesson – not to follow the crowd and to embrace my individual style. She taught me not to be ashamed of what I wore because my style differed from others. It didn’t matter what others thought about my clothes as long as I liked them and felt comfortable in what I wore.
This graphic sweatshirt was a great Topshop find that I still look forward to wearing when the weather gets cooler. Paired with a pin-stripe button down and an A-line skirt, this look feels preppy but feels fresh thanks to these fun Pom Pom heels.
