Preppy Meets Edgy

Happy Tuesday! I spent my Monday tackling my to-do list (which was way too long due to my really bad habit of procrastination). I also have this tendency to read an e-mail (or text) and feel certain that I replied to it but I never actually did. Oops. I'm going to work on that and get myself organized with a set time each day to devotes to replying to e-mails. Hopefully that will help! 

Today, I'm styling this pink striped shirt and distressed denim that I recently purchased from Old Navy (one of my favorite places to shop for affordable basics). Last Friday, I did a try on and fit review over on my Instagram stories. These two pieces definitely got the most questions so I wanted to style them here on the blog to show how I would wear them together. I wouldn't describe my style as really preppy or edgy but I absolutely love to mix the two styles together. I loved how this classic striped shirt paired with the edgier distressed denim. Unexpected combos are always my favorite!


The shirt runs true to size (I'm wearing a small) and the jeans are also true to size (I'm wearing a size four). If you have a larger bust, I would definitely recommend sizing up in the shirt for a more comfortable fit. Also, the jeans have very little stretch to them. I can wear a size 2 in the Rock Star jeans from Old Navy because they are so stretchy but I needed my normal size in this pair. The jeans have a great mid-rise and I love the slightly cropped length. I also plan to wear these jeans with ankle boots this fall! They are definitely going to be my new favorite pair!

Thank you so much for visiting! I hope you have a wonderful day!
