It may look somewhat effortless, but this was the fifth ivory sweater I tried on. The others were either too sheer or too thick. And the jeans are too bulky (cuffed around the ankles) to work with cognac ankle boots so I switched to pumps. It was worth the extra effort because I love this blend of preppy staples - camel blazer, the ultimate striped button down, a cognac belt. This look may have taken some effort, but it's certainly easy to wear. Hopefully it's an outfit recipe you can use too!
