Last Saturday I had an impromptu lunch at one of my favorite lunch places with one of my favorite ladies. Since just for lunch is very much a ladies who lunch type of place I put together a preppy outfit that other friends said looked very PTA. I just fell in love with the pink elephant fabric when I saw it on etsy and knew it had to be skirt number five I handmade. I apparently really like elephants because very little digging turned up these accessories.
You could call this a high-low outfit as it's a mix of good bargins and some investment pieces.
Head to toe the outfit is:
Headband off etsy - a free gift when I bought lilly headbands
Earrings Betsy Johnson $10 off eBay
Cardigan is a boutique label from a local consignment shop $35
Silk blouse ($68 from the preppy outlet), necklace($34 on sale at the pink door in March) and watch ($20 for two wristbands, one watch piece) are lilly pulitzer
Bangle is Kenneth Kay lane $135 off ebay, a little pricey for costume jewelry but I wear it a lot
Skirts is Michael miller fabric $10 a yard plus shipping, this is 1.5 yards, the elephants are playing with champagne bottles
Shoes lilly pulitzer $89 on sale from Ocean Palm in March
Close up of the earrings:
So just for lunch is in the Chickasaw plaza here in Memphis. It's a small shopping center with upscale women's shops. I love how it had the feel of patio dining but in climate controlled. The menu also offers very reasonable prices, most meals are. $10 each.
I just love being girly!
