Make sure you're following us on Instagram this week as we count down the next 5 days to Sunday's Academy Awards. Cass, Jess and Erin will each be wearing their favorite Hollywood inspired gold & silver pieces for the "Glitter and Glam" week.
Recapping one of the most fun weeks with our favorite 5 siblings. Last week, Erin and her 4 siblings styled their favorite pieces of apparel 5-ways for the ultimate sibling rivalry challenge. I think it's safe to say that this family has got some steeeeelo. Do they get it from their super cool parents? Who knows, but one thing's for sure: we will DEFINITELY be featuring these 5 beauts again for a sibling rivalry rematch. Check out how Alex, Sarah, Erin, Abby and Peter executed the challenge! And tell us, because this family is FULL of competitors, who do you think won?
Here's Jess, who mixed a bit of the old school classic prep with an amazing homage to the pastry delight, the donut. No one rocks the plaid quite like her, she practically bleeds plaid like any good classic Prepster does.
Well done Jess!
One year later and this little JCrew plaid shirt is still crushing the 5x5 challenge. Since this was the very first item that started all of the Five Days fun, technically THIS week made it Ten Days, Ten Ways, right? Way to crush it yet againnnnn Miss Cass Andrea!
Beautiful photos by Luke Perkins, as always.
Today we're recapping Erin's "Ode to Plaid" week. She chose a red and blue hued plaid number. Layering it under jackets and layering it over graphic tees, Erin proved that the plaid shirt is our favorite layering piece. It adds texture, pattern and warmth--we'd even argue that you can treat this patterned shirt as a neutral. So, I'm sure the 5x5 girls will be featuring this baby again sometime soon.
