Style Recipe: Rustic Prep Girl Chic

I am loving this combination lately. It’s very Alexa Chung. And it’s a whole lot of Zara and Madewell (sorry, it’s just on my radar a lot lately). From sequined wallets-big-as-clutches to supple leather backpacks (let’s bring the backpack back, y’all), to tweed shorts with black tights…topped off with olive hued jackets, a jaunty fedora, and striped shirt. Well, it just screams new take on old classics to me. Everything has a twist. {The backpack, but it’s leather; the clutch, but it’s sequined; the black tights but with tweed shorts…the list goes on}

Can you see yourself wearing any or some of these pieces? Honestly I could wear them all…but I’d stick to one bag at a time (and I’ve already purchased the canvas Madewell bag and LOVE IT!).
