Pin-spired | Oxfords and Stripes

As soon as I saw this classic, preppy Taylor Swift look on Pinterest, I was dying to recreate it with pieces I already own.  Plus I got another chance to try out fall’s latest trend, pastels, with my pink jeans.  If you missed yesterday’s post I styled my mint jeans for fall HERE.

  • Alison! So excited that you are linking up with us today! LOVE the stripes and oxford look on you. I haven’t tried the oxfords yet. As always, it’s going to take me a bit to warm up to the trend. (It took me over a year to get on board with booties!) Also, still loving those blush pants. Everybody needs to buy the today!
