Bloggers Do It Better: Prep School

When I saw the Bloggers Do It Better challenge from Pretty Shiny Sparkly I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to do it.  The challenge:  Bloggers Do It Better:  Prep School.  I have never been a preppy girl.  I never went through the pop collar look.  But I decided to try the challenge and see what I had in my closet to make it work. 

After going through my closet, I realized one thing I need a button up shirt.  Since I have lost weight I do not have a shirt that would work.  My remedy my husband’s white polo.  The polo was a little large, but I tucked it in and put a black cardigan over it.  I selected the tie because it used to belong to my grandfather.  Grandpa Sayre would be so happy that I was wearing his tie.  So here is my Prep School Look:
