Classic Fall Preppy: Navy Blazer, White Land’s End Oxford, J. Crew Chinos, And Kate Spade Sunglasses And Bag


Here in Florida, it’s still too warm for my wool navy blazer, so I’m wearing my linen one, with a monogrammed white shirt.

Oxford-cloth tops are so soft and comfortable–and breathable–that I find myself returning to this embroidered one time and again all year.

The cropped, rolled-up chinos are a new style for me.  They don’t do much for lengthening the leg, since they are a looser fit in the thigh and calf, but I like the look nonetheless.

Along with the leather and mixed-metal necklace, and wearing my bag crossbody, they’re a fun way to dress down my blazer (as is pushing up the blazer sleeves). ~Janis Lyn Johnson
