The Preppier Side of Life

The Preppier Side of Life

dfe1cc958e62cbace66081a0a3901981

When I was growing up I used to wear Lilly Pulitzer, Laura Ashley, Ralph Lauren and Vineyard Vines everyday like it used to be my job.  Nantucket and Avalon were like my second homes, and pink and green (if you couldn’t have already assumed) were my favorite colors, naturally.  And as for accessories?….a bow and a smile…..Like I even had to explain that.

Needless to say, I have changed.  A lot.  I have grown up and come into my own based on new locations, friends, my education and scenarios.  But, I’m still the same happy and peppy like when I was a little kid, just not always as fitted and colorful.

So, all this being said I’m going to throw it back (is throwback tuesday a thing?…….ehhhhhh we’ll work on that) to looks that still have a soft spot in my heart for.  So thanks to Pinterest here are some great images.

Disclaimer:  They scream “PREP PLEASE” so if bright colors, plaids, bows and monograming make you queazy……this might not be the post for you
