WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG?
I was a freshman at Georgetown University and going through a difficult transition to college life. I started blogging as a creative outlet.
WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND YOUR BLOG NAME?
It was a little bit of a joke between my classmates and me. It was just a funny play on words about being preppy in college.
WHAT MAKES YOUR BLOG STAND OUT?
I blog every day and I write about all kinds of topics, not just outfit of the day posts. I try to make my blog like a conversation between me and my readers.
DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL/SIGNATURE STYLE?
Put together but comfortable.
WHO IS YOUR #1 FASHION ICON?
I love how Olivia Palermo ties in trendy pieces with an overall classic wardrobe.

If I could wear Carolina Herrera every day, I would.
Anywhere where I can shop online 😉

3 FASHION TIPS?
1. Get a made-for-you fit by taking a piece of clothing to the tailor.

3. Remove one accessory before walking out the door (one of my favorite tips my mom always said)
