Yesterday, I talked about my earliest fashion influences---my mother and grandmother. But, when I was 11 or 12, an even more powerful force took hold: peer pressure. About the time I started junior high, what would later be known as "preppy style" (which we called the "Ivy League look") swept the Midwest. And my school. For the next six or seven years---through college, actually---my wardrobe was awash in crewneck sweaters and button-down collared shirts, plaid skirts and loafers---and, of course, the requisite camel hair coat. If some of this sounds familiar, it should, because many styles from my teenage years have become mainstays of my adult wardrobe. From time to time, I would be tempted by new trends---and there were a few years when I owned an inordinate number of skirt suits. But I always gravitated back to this casual, collegiate style because, well, it felt like "home." So, yes, my second fashion influence was the style that was popular when I came of age. But another factor was also important. I'll get to that Wednesday. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend, my lovelies. Happy Tuesday! Sweater: #jcrewstyle. Shirt, booties, belt and necklace: #madewell. Jeans: #targetstyle. Tote
