My Ensemble (OOTD): Preppy with Sperry

"Give me heels, boots and ballerina flats any day" used to be my school of thought regarding footwear. Anyone who knows me personally probably won't be able to recall the last time I wore trainers/plimsole-style shoes but I'm completely won over by these women's Bahama boat shoes (in 'Coral Seersucker Plaid') by Sperry. I'd heard of the brand before but had no intention on buying a pair because didn't think the pieces would fit into my smart, feminin, conservative style (like in my last outfit post titled 'My Ensemble (OOTD): The Color Purple'). I was wrong.

SHOES: Sperry | JEANS: New Look | SHIRT: United Colors of Benetton | BELT: H&M | CARDIGAN: River Island

I decided to style these shoes around one of my favourite looks: preppy. Using the accent colours, I picked out some pieces in my wardrobe to create something smart-casual. I wanted to keep everything about the look simple: hair back and I'm not even wearing jewellery.

Sperry shoes are perfect for the summer months: they're light, well cushioned and extremely comfortable. Great for urban, beach and field settings too.

It's always good to venture out of your style comfort zone; you might actually discover a liking for something new.

As ever,
