Boyfriend Fashion: Preppy Style

So…Markel doesn’t know it yet…but this summer I plan to revamp his wardrobe with some more preppy pieces.  I’ve decided that preppy looks the best on him and really gives off a clean, put-together look.  He can mix and match without a problem, plus he’ll always look appropriate to every function without much effort.  Button downs, polos, khakis, boat shoes, hats… it’s SO adorable!

Here my inspiration board first, then I’ll show you the new things I’m looking to add to Markel’s wardrobe =D

 Okay…so it wasn’t just a FEW key pieces…kind of a lot really…But each item was so adorable i just couldn’t take anything out!

Sperry Top-Siders Have Arrived!

For Markel’s bday, I ordered a few pairs of Sperry’s for him to try on.  I wasn’t sure which color would look best in person, so I ordered brown, navy, and a seer-sucker patterned pair.  Two of the three pairs have arrived!  Check em out~~  Although the seer-sucker one SCREAMS markel and his style..the navy pair are my favorite.  They would go beautifully with the gray khakis I got him and any pair of jeans or khakis he already owns.  What do you think?  Don’t you think these boat shoes are perfect for spring/summer 2012?!
