DRESS CODE: Quirky Colourful Preppy Nerd!

Hello lovely Dusty Petal followers. I was feeling particularly daring when styling my last photo shoot for Dusty Petals and decided to break all fashion rules. The result was the look below. I titled it ‘Quirky Colourful Preppy Nerd.’ I love how some outfits allow you to take on a new persona and create more confidence in yourself. That is exactly what this crazy number did for me.
Colour was my initial inspiration when styling this look. I have always been fasciated by the power and effect colour plays on peoples emotions. It not only impacts your own mood but also controls how people respond to you; they almost feel like they have to smile at you and become energised around you. I love that!
To help inspire you all to take be a little daring with your style I have put together some fun ‘Quirky Colourful Preppy Nerd’ looks below.
Also, check out the behind the scenes video of this Dusty Petals photo shoot.

What are you wearing???
Shirt and bag are from boutique in Brooklyn, NY, Vintage shorts (Etsy), My dad’s 70′s bow tie, Shoes from Lion In Love.
