I have always had somewhat of a preppy side to my personal style therefore when I spot pieces like this dress with the perfect ruffle detailing at the sleeves and the collar…I’m SOLD, immediately!
In college I went through a heavy preppy phase. I had a bunch of polo shirts in a multitude of colors and even threw a few “polos & pearls” parties – WOAH (insert eye roll here!) While studying abroad in Paris I used to wear this neon green polo shirt and my friend Kristen used to remark how I stuck out like a true American – ha! That phase of my style makes me laugh nowadays.
That being said, I still have a soft spot for some more feminine, preppy pieces and you know I love a good ruffle or bow moment. While I wouldn’t define my personal style as preppy anymore I do always love feminine pieces. I’ve spotted some good ones recently in addition to this dress such as this top, this top (so similar to my top from this post!), this sweater, this top, this top, this sweater, this blouse, this blouse and this sweater.
It’s always so funny to remember certain style phases or pieces that defined us. And now I’m old enough that when I see things like scrunchies coming back I can’t help but think Whhhhhat!? But, as my mom always told me growing up: what goes around always comes back around. Mothers are really always right, aren’t they!?
