Preppy 101

Preppy 101

Hey friends! I’m going total prep style today with some of the basics.

Classic navy stripes. Check.

Navy pixie pants. Check.

Comfy classic sneakers. Check.

Gang’s all here. Only thing really missing is my monogrammed necklace and pearls, which was a total oversight and fail on my part. I’ll be the first to admit that. #whatwasithinking

Anyway, there’s something to be said for the classic preppy look. I admire all of those kids from the mid 80’s and 90’s who had the good sense to stay away from the feathered/teased bangs and crimping irons. Their reward? A graduation photo that doesn’t cause mortification 30 years down the road. I didn’t fair so well.

And for this reason, the classics will always have a place in my closet. Lord knows I’ve been burned one too many times by “awesome” trends in my day. My guess is that we all have.

This tank is a great staple for every girl’s closet. If you don’t have a quality navy/black stripe knit top, I really encourage you to make the move and get one. It will work beautifully with so many different looks and occasions, I promise you. I have one in a tank style, a short sleeve style and a long sleeve style.

Converse are my absolute go-to casual, around town shoe, you guys. It’s honestly pretty embarrassing how many various colors I own. While I love a cute pair of flats, my sneakers are what feel most comfy to me. I got this candy striped pair a couple of years ago, but have linked up some other great options below for you guys.

Hope you have a great night! Thanks so much for reading! xo
