Lucky Inspiration...Day Two!?!?

So, I am very proud of myself for once again using Lucky mag's April month of outfits inspiration calendar. This look is called New School Preppy. While I don't think I actually captured the essence of "preppy" per say, I had a lot of fun using items that I already had in my closet trying to piece together a similar look...and let me tell you, it was not easy. And yes I'm wearing rules, shmashion rules. :) Anyway, I'm not exactly sure how I feel about all these pieces together, but I guess I'm doing better than my hoodie and jeans days back in college.

This dress combines three of my favorite things ever: floral print, zippers, and denim (or at least the look of denim.) I found it at Target back in February when I discovered the Pure Energy line. They've got a lot of super cute stuff right now for summer. If you haven't checked this stuff out yet, you need to. You will not be disappointed!
Dress: Target, $24.99
Cardigan: Old Navy, $26.50
Belt: Old Navy, $14.50
Shoes: Old Navy, $24.50
Bag: Local Boutique, $70

And of course, the BF had to snap a shot of me acting goofy...

This picture is pretty indicative of my day today...absolutely crazy! But I thought you might get a little giggle out of it. I did. (Oh! and sorry for the funny lighting in these pics. My camera is acting up.)

Hope your week is off to a fantastic start!
