Preppy Royalty

In between shirt jacks and brand shirts, we can wear anything else within the bounds of decency in the office. I don’t remember dabbling into the preppy side of fashion yet so I took a chance on my office outfit yesterday.

Cardigan from Forever 21 | Scarf from Peacocks London | Body con skirt from Cotton On


I revived this old pink button down polo and turned it into an improvised pussybow top by incorporating a polka dot chiffon scarf. The combination of pinkish blush tones and midnight blue + white polka dots is just adorable! Polished the look with the quintessential sweater for that final preppy touch. Nope, I wasn't wearing tights, I don't know how on earth my legs looked toasted in these photos.

I did a little wordplay on Nirvana’s song Pennyroyal Tea, hence the title. Thank God it's Friday!
