Style Icon: Nancy Drew

If you've ever been a teenage girl then you know who Nancy Drew is.
For those of you who missed this amazing stage of life, Nancy Drew is a teenage sleuth a.k.a. detective.  She's known for being a strong female character with a bold personality, having the smarts to solve entire mysteries in less than 100 pages and her sweet, sweet penny loafers. 
Introducing my style icon, Nancy Drew.

Emma Roberts as Nancy Drew in the in 2007 movie.
Follow the steps below to create your own Nancy Drew inspired look.

First step to channel your inner Nancy is to get your hands on some penny loafers.
I have these by Sperry.

Secondly, you will need to invest in some knee-high socks.

Third, get yourself a tartan skirt. 
Like this one, from ASOS.

The fourth step is to go out and buy a wool hat.
Cute AND practical!
I found this one at Forever 21.
Lastly, for the true Nancy Drew wannabe, a magnifying glass necklace.
This one is from Etsy.
Now, go and solve some mysteries!
And you don't actually solve anything, at least you looked pretty darn cute trying.
