Although I adore J.Crew (who have just opened a two stores in London and currently offer free deliveries and returns in the UK), it is a little pricy. To indulge my American Prep period without breaking the bank, I’ve been picking up pieces from Gap, Uniqlo and even Accessorize – it seems my favourite look is currently hot on the high street, too.

I love a bit of prep, personally I’m a little more Connecticut prep as our weather gets colder. A layered camisole under cashmere v-necks under peacoats and sweet bow headbands topped off with a strand of pearls is pretty par for the course at work. Those shoes are totally adorable!


There’s a reason why some outfit styles are fail-safe! BTW just wanted to say I LOVED your wedding posts. I’m not the wedding type but it looked absolutely beautiful and I bet it was great fun, well done on all the hard work it was totally Pinterest worthy ;-P Hannah x
