During this time of the year, I find myself retracing my steps to my childhood days of dress-up. However now, I know the ins and outs of the fashion world. For example, Friday, I was feeling girly. This caused me to pair up a tweed grey mini skirt, a red Tommy Hilfiger cardigan, matching red tights, and basic black oxford heels, with the season's fashionable cashmere Burberry scarf. The scarf gave the classic look something that stood out.
Today, I woke up to blue open skies. This inspired me to add a little twang to my outfit, so I paired a navy and red plaid flannel button down with a navy boyfriend blazer, camel colored corduroy pants, and dark brown knee high leather boots. Prep with a Country twist!
As I have mentioned before, I do some part-time modeling to compliment being a college student. This summer a great photographer and friend of mine, did a few girlfriends and I the favor of shooting a country themed photo shoot on a local farm. A few of the pictures from the shoot are below as inspiration:

Below is a Country Themed Polyvore that I created with the help of Tommy Hilfiger's Fall 2010 Collection. One of my favorite pieces from it are the Duck Boots. Growing up they were popular, and I am thrilled that Tommy has brought them back (with heels). I have a pair of Duck Boot rain skimmers from this collection, and not only are they fashionable, but extremely practical. They are rainproof and have great traction, and as a college student, those are key ingredients when looking for shoes!

pearl twist necklace, $100
I greatly encourage you to play up your classic looks with a small accessory or fabric alteration. My promise is that you will find an abundance of approval...especially in the college aged fashion world.
