Preppy

Golf Outfit

This summer I’ve been playing golf. I love it because you’re outside for a couple hours and you also get a great workout if you pull your clubs. The green is beautiful and walking or driving the course gives you a different perspective than if you just view it from the road.

With this new interest in golf I’ve been checking out different outfits that would be cool on a hot day and preppy. This shift dress would be perfect if it was in a cotton/spandex blend that would move as you hit the ball.

First Day

School has started or almost started for many people and I still remember my excitement at each first day. There was the nervous anticipation of what to wear, would I like my teachers and the hope that I would have a friend or two in each class.

This time around, if I was doing a first day, I would wear this outfit. A pink dress with fun jewelry says that she’s fun and approachable. First impressions are key so in addition to a great outfit I would also be prepared with a couple good questions for the teacher. There’s no better way to start off on the right foot!

Classic Sass

Spice up a classic silhouette by picking a dress that has jewels sewn into it. This traditional shape is flattering for all body types by accenting her waist while skimming over her curves. If you like a more laid back style or don’t feel like accessorizing, it’s great to pick a dress that takes care of that for you.

Nautical Nation

If you were to visit my apartment you would find a sea of nautical items. Growing up near the beach, it’s close to my heart. I don’t think I could ever go too far from water. There’s something about the smell and relaxing feeling I get by being near it that I could never give it up.

I incorporate a nautical theme into my wardrobe by picking items that are brightly colored with sea creatures or plants. This dress brings out the bright colored coral that dots the ocean floor. I paired it with a bright green to imitate the ocean and make the deep reds stronger.

Flower Child

Wear a dress with a big bold flower pattern? Yes, please!

Go big, go bold and try fun patterns! There’s nothing wrong with mixing up a normally monochromatic or solid colored wardrobe with a loud dress. I’m in love with the big graphic flowers peppering this dress. Yellow and pink bring to mind a preppy party. This would be perfect for any occasion from a quick drink with friends to a family dinner.

Fresh Vintage

Vintage and 70’s style clothing is fun to incorporate into your everyday wardrobe. Leopard is a great neural that you can bring it into the little details. This outfit brings in leopard in a lot of little ways from her sunglasses to handbag. The structured fit of her clothing helps to give this vintage outfit a modern take.

Anniversary Red

Cliché, but I love roses. I think they are beautiful flowers to mark special occasions. I recently had my anniversary and was given beautiful pink roses. Having roses in my apartment livens up the living area with a sweet scent and fun color.

They photograph beautifully and look wonderful when they are painted, stitched or screen shot onto clothing. If I had this dress in my closet I would have worn it that night!
