I got my new Virginia Living Magazine yesterday in the mail. I had to chuckle when I saw the cover:
I have never considered myself "preppy". I've never even used that word I don't think? I consider myself to be a "classic Southern dresser". I love ALL bright colors. Pink and green are no more special than blue or yellow to me. I do have various critters on some of my pants. I always have. I thought that was normal? I wear bows in my hair, because that is what Southern girls do.
I wear my loafers until they split. And then I buy another pair. Another pair identical to the last pair. Because they are classic. There is no reason for change.
I like "trendy" clothes on Friday nights. Silver boots with buckles, and lots of black. It's fun to "experiment". But on Saturday morning I'm right back to my standard attire. It is what it is.
It amazes me that people have a fascination with being "preppy". It disturbs me that you can purchase a seersucker blazer at American Eagle. Or Old Navy. Eww....please no.
And here is my Virginia Living Magazine playing along.
