Life, What to do Wednesdays

What to do when…. You wanna get your prep on

For many, Summer is creeping on you faster and faster. Such summer classics like the bikini, shorts, and flirty summer dresses having been given a preppy punch to them. Being from the South, I tend to adore the preppy style. However, most who know me would have never guessed this since I keep that fact generally to myself.

Well, now that the cat is out of the bag lets talk brands! Obviously you cannot talk prep without mentioning Lilly Pulitizer or Ralph Lauren, who could be crowned the king and queen of preppy style in my mind. What has given these two their staying power really is how they stick to a classic shape and then just re-invent it.

If you are wanting to achieve the preppy style, it’s definitely best to stick to the basics. As stereotypical as a polo is, it definitely works for most (unless of course you’re large in the chest area). Another basic would have to be a button down shirt, which can be dressed up or down. Chambray has become a recent prep staple and you can pair a chambray shirt with shorts, white jeans or with a flowy maxi skirt in a pastel color. Definitely can’t forget the color pink, either!

Even though I do admire a girl who can pull off the looks below, I don’t think i’d ever be able to as well as them. Hopefully y’all can in your own unique way!

Sorry again for yet another short post, this term is much more hectic than last. So, considering I have another paper and some oh-so wonderful reading awaiting me, time to say adios!

Have a wonderful rest of the week y’all!! (:
