Preppy isn’t in my soul.

London, England

Yumi floral dress / knee high grey socks / Yves Saint Laurent sandals (similar HERE and HERE) / Givenchy Antigona bag / Maurice Lacroix watch / handmade bracelets from a sweet reader 

Emmm. Soooo. What can I say… If you’re following me on Instagram you pretty much already know that this is a very “not so me” outfit; at least not on a regular basis. Nevertheless, this cute flower dress made my brain foggy, and I was left in delusion i’m still 15 and in high school. Not that I ever wore that when I was 15. But that’s a different story none has to know.

So I thought that as a fresh Londoner, I can be forgiven for playing with the preppy school girl look. What do you think, guys?

  • This suits you so well! You should give it a go from time to time, spice it up a bit. Maybe I’m a bit biased since I’m a sucker for shift dresses and heels with knee socks ^.^

  • SO cute! i really love this look! Sometimes it’s fun to experiment with different styles from time to time!

  • This dress is sooo beautiful! I love the whole look! Xoxo

  • I think the dress looks actually more adult-like than you think because of the straight cut (instead of bodycon). 🙂

  • loved the styling!

  • I was waiting for so long for this post!

  • Love it!
    Usually I say no to this kind of combo, but suits you so well and you look very good!

  • wish I could have your courage…to wear over the knee socks out in sandals! I only feel comfortable inside the house with this kind of items! but look incredible on you! great styling! 😉

  • awesome … love your outfit

  • love your outfit! I think it suits u well! U should wear preppy outfits more often! Xx

  • I love this dress, and the socks look so cool with the heels, you’re definitely working it! 🙂

  • I think this look really works! Love how added the socks. Think this dress could look really 60s too. Love the location btw, I wonder past there then and again and admire the houses x

  • you look great 🙂

  • This outfit isn’t my style either but I’m in love with it!! Socks in sandals are such a no no no usually but you do it in such a fashionable way!! Everything about this look is perfect (the bag o.o). xo

  • cuteeee as can be. love the combo of high socks and heals- will defiantly try that out in the future
