Yesterday my friend Greg saw a pair of topsiders on a teenage kid and asked me if those weren't old man shoes. I explained that they were actually some of the coolest shoes ever, and then remembered that I had a navy patent pair. I also explained that just beneath the surface of my regular style lies a wannabe New England prepster that's just dying to get out, which is why I'm so fond of such things. So I *had* to wear my Topsiders today, and figured I might as well go all out with my Nantucket tee and whale belt (on loan from Rod):

shoes: Sperry Topsiders, jeans: Old Navy, belt: JCrew, Nantucket tee: thrifted, bag: Rebecca Minkoff, cardi: Martin+Osa

I was tempted to wear a necklace similar to this one in my shop, but decided against it. But it goes with the theme of the post so I'm posting it!

I totally had Sperry topsiders in 6th grade when the whole "preppy" thing was raging!

I love this look--it's adorable!
