The holiday season is such a fun time for preppy style. With bold colors and patterns galore, it is the perfect time to step away from your dark and solid winter attire. I love preppy style because layering is a major factor and ideal for Florida this time of year. The weather randomly fluctuates between chilly and warm temperatures, so layerable pieces are a staple for southern style. Crown & Ivy is the ultimate source for comfortable, stylish pieces that are totally suitable for layering.
I stopped by my local Belk store specifically looking for a white button down shirt with black or navy polka dots but I left with more than that. Because plaid. Red plaid. My obsession with plaid is legit and I’m not ashamed. I saw the plaid roll sleeve tunic and knew it was meant for me. This top is so soft and falls perfectly with my aversion to ironing. Hand this tunic in the bathroom while showering and the steam makes every wrinkle disappear. I love that all except one button on this plaid shirt are hidden. Layering this top is easy with a sweater or vest is easy and Crown & Ivy has great pieces that coordinate perfectly, making Belk a one stop shop for complete outfits. I layered my plaid tunic with a black Crown & Ivy cardigan and I was ready for a day full of holiday shopping followed by decorating.
Crown & Ivy is available exclusively at Belk so I decided not to pass up the chance to grab the scatter dot long sleeve shirt I wanted and an adorable mixed print blouse. Let’s not talk about how I spotted 7 other pieces I wanted while checking out and am still considering heading back to purchase them. If you have never worn this brand of clothing, you are missing out and that is not cool. If you’re anything like me, you’ll try Crown & Ivy clothing on and wish you could buy them in the dressing room so you can just wear them out of the store.
