On Wednesdays We Wear Prep

There’s something that just brightens your day when you dress with a little prep flare.  Maybe it’s because it makes us feel like we’re timeless like Grace Kelly, feminine like Jackie O, or simply colorful and filled with flare like Lilly Pulitzer, but dressing prep definitely puts a little spring in our step.

I loved combining these Spring colors, even on the cloudy day we’re having here in Denver.  This outfit is both comfortable, but feels pulled together, which is perfect for a busy day at the office.

Since I live in Denver, and own the fact that I look “dressed up” everyday, I like to keep my makeup and hair natural whenever possible.  This helps my pulled together look seem more casual than over-the top.

…but no matter what you do, always remember to live as Lilly said, “Life is a party, dress like it!”


What are your favorite prep staples?  Who’s your favorite, preppy idol?

Create a great life!

    I feel like we share a closet… haha. I think it’s the Northeastern prepster in me that still wears Lilly skirts and dresses to the office. My favorite preppy idol would definitely have to be Serena Van der Woodsen… I will love Gossip Girl always. We’re also total opposites today… currently wearing blue and white seersucker pants and a white button down top : ) Have a fab Wednesday!!

      Ha, love it! And I totally considered adding Blair Waldorf to the list, ha! Happy Wednesday Prepday! (I just made that up, but it should be a real thing…)
