"i'll be your serena"


so my girl kindredly invited me to a birthday bash this weekend for one of her co-workers, and when i say birthday bash, i mean it. apparently it's a really big to do, and each year there is a different theme. this year's theme happens to be "preppy."

enter kindredly's new-found obsession {and my longtime love} of gossip girl, and you have two incredibly excited gals. for her outfit, kindredly is channelling blair waldorf circa summer-in-the-hamptons, so she clearly needs a serena by her side!


i only have a couple concerns...
i really like serena's style, but it's not as preppy as most of blair's outfits, and i definitely want to play the preppy role. also, the items in my closet don't exactly resemble what a real-life serena might own. i was thinking about trying to pull off the plaid skirt look, but i don't really own any plaid. so, i'm not sure what exactly i will wear, but i am having fun looking for inspiration. {as if i needed another excuse to watch gg.}


so, my lovely readers, i need your advice/opinions! what would you wear to a preppy {but oh so fabulous} birthday bash?
xoxo

eeeeeeek!! Serena is kind of sexy-preppy. Kind of like "Preppy because I have to wear this tie everyday" preppy. If you need to go shopping this Saturday, I. AM. THERE. Just say the word. :)

I think if you went as Serena like you will look fab! She has a more boho glam prep, but that is fab!!

Wow you went to the right place to look for inspiration. I'm thinking opaque tights, headband, button down and a semi poof skirt?

Lauren, I am really excited to! I can't wait to meet you!

Taylor, thanks for the input! You are definitely right.. boho meets preppy. I love it!

Dina, you hit it right on. As of now I am going with a white button-down blouse w/ruffles, opaque tights, and bow headband! The only thing missing is the skirt...

I'm thinking of Serena's style as more hippie-luxe than preppy. I would skip the plaid and wear something like the bandage style dress she wore at Sotheby's!

And on another note, I think I would have stabbed anyone who cut off my natural lashes... the horror. I hope they grew out fast! xoxoxo
