I was good with no purchases last week, but this week I bought a couple of vintage things. They are actually from the same seller, so it was like a happy accident.

I have been searching for a suede, fringed jacket and found one from the 70s that I hope looks as nice in person. I started searching their store and saw a vintage 1950s letterman sweater.

It is red wool with a W on it which is perfect. I have looked at them over the years but have never found a colour that I liked with a letter that worked for my name.

So it was a jacket purchase with a bonus sweater find. It kind of works for the preppy vibe because…

This week I was kind of getting excited over a distorted preppy aesthetic, so I made a capsule wardrobe for it with an explanation of my thought process in that post.

It’s a fun aesthetic. I find that it exercises my style creativity when I play around with different aesthetics.

I also made a French style inspired capsule wardrobe digital style guide that also contains a bonus weekend packing list.

The preppy wardrobe made me REALLY want to get the track jacket/blazer hybrid. It’s such a statement piece.

Maybe some other day.

It wasn’t until 11 o’clock last night when I was pulling pieces and posting inspirational looks to my Instagram stories that I decided on a preppy capsule wardrobe for tonight.

I had no idea what direction I was going this week and was feeling frustrated with a lack of inspiration when I noticed a trend.
