Saturday, November 18. This is Karin, a sorority sister and another of the fabulously dressed guests at our college friends’ wedding a couple of weeks ago. I loved that Karin embraced the fall time period of the wedding and wore a long sleeved dress, which stood out in a chic way amongst a sea of cocktail dresses.
Dress- Rebecca Taylor / Tights- Spanx reversible tights {ed note: the coolest tights ever - two colors plus built in shapewear?! buying some asap.} / Heels - BCBG generation / Clutch- Tory Burch / Ring- Anthropologie

Saturday, November 18. This is Claire, my college roommate and close friend. We don’t get to see each other too often now that we live in different states, but I had a blast with her at Katie and Raf’s wedding a couple weeks ago. I loved her pink and brown ensemble that evening, so I thought I’d share! (In college we used to have “preppy contests” to see who could be the most prepped out, so she definitely deserves the spotlight here on Preppy with a Twist!)

Guest Post: A Connecticut Yankee

Tuesday, November 30

This is my coworker, Keira. She just started working at my company and every day I’ve just loved her classic, preppy outfits. Her Connecticut upbringing and parents’ fashion background (her mother used to design for Donna Karan and later had her own line, while her father owned a weekend wear business) are evident in this simple but stylish look.

The Outfit… stylish 

Blue Silk Cargo Dress - Diane Von Furstenberg, sample

Silk Scarf - Hermes, borrowed from mom

Brown Suede and Leather Boots - Max Mara

plus various jewelry and nude hose for warmth

Keira says: I decided to wear this sassy little number because I wanted to be comfy and timeless.  This DVF dress is such a good working dress for sitting in the office all day.  I wanted to dress up the look so I added an always classic Hermes silk scarf!
