Model Katie Fogarty embodies a college girl’s preppy-chic, sans-hangover & frat house boyfriend in Elle Russia’s April 2011 issue. The ultra cool denim separates come direct from the likes of Isabel Marant, Tommy Hilfiger, and Paul & Joe. We love the red graffiti inspired denim paired with the navy blue oversized pullover (would we wear it? Yes.) and the chambray shirt donned with the lettermen jacket. The denim shorts, one styled with lace up oxford booties and tube socks, the other with a striped navy and white leather belt, with a two toned yellow and white shirt, gives shining new potential to the nerdy bookworm’s summer digs. Forgarty’s tousled side swept curls, pull together this preppy look, leaving us wondering whether we should crack a book or two this afternoon!

We like cute. We like lighthearted. We like BBQ’s, a cold beer, friends gathered around a picnic table, flowers, butterfly nets… you get the idea. So the Springfield spring/summer 2011 lookbook was like a frolic through the park for us, and we’d be lying if we said it didn’t give us some adorable, preppy ideas for festive dressing in the warmer months. Ideas like colored denim shorts paired with layered breezy tops, denim work shirts paired with long boho skirts, one-piece jumpers with sweet sandals… the list goes on. SO go ahead, toss it back and get ready for spring!
