I love experimenting with different fashion statements and styles. I love styles with a southern flare, so naturally I am a fan of scalloped fashion. It has a sweet and feminine accent that can add a girly touch to even the simplest ensembles.

  1. Collared shirt: Button-up shirts with a scalloped collar are so sweet and versatile. You can wear them tucked in to a pair of jeans or a skirt, or you can even layer them under a cute sweater for a more dimensional look.
  2. Pea coat: The best way to showcase this trend is in outerwear! Layer a sweet scalloped pea coat over a simple ensemble for a cute winter outfit.
  3. Booties: I love scalloped booties because they are a really subtle way to rock the trend. They are sweet and feminine and add a cute touch to the simplest of outfits.

What is your favorite scalloped accessory?

XOXO, Chels

Are you a preppy gal? Do you WANT to be a preppy gal? If you said yes to either of those questions, you are going to want to keep reading! Spring, to me, is a time for pastels and pretty dresses. And preppy styles, of course! Spring is full of mild weather, blooming flowers and blue skies, perfect preppy attire weather if you ask me! Here is my guide to everything essential for the springtime prepster.

  1. Sweet sundresses: I LOOOVE when the weather is warm enough to break out my sundresses! Sundresses are great for running around town doing errands, for a day out with the gals, for Church, or even date night!2c550a2f63d74ded18a84f691c2825fe
  2. Floral skirts: So feminine and so classic! After months of hiding your legs under jeans and leggings, let them free in a sweet floral skirt. Pair with a simple pastel blouse to balance the look.
  3. Pastel button-ups: Oxfords are a preppy wardrobe staple. Pretty pastel ones are a perfect addition to your springtime get-up. Experiment with patterns like gingham to mix things up! Roll the sleeves when it starts warming up, and pair with a monogrammed necklace to finish the look.
  4. Classic trench coats: Springtime = rainy days galore! How do you think those May flowers get their beautiful blooms? April showers, of course! Beat the rain and chilly mornings with a classy camel trench coat. They are so versatile and timeless, so they go with just about anything!

There you have it, the 4 pieces to add some prep to your spring wardrobe!

Trench Coat Fashion

To me, there is no clothing item more classic than a tan trench coat. They are timeless, can be paired with pretty much anything, and never go out of style. If there was one piece of clothing I would recommend for every closet, it would be a tan trench coat! Here are a few of my favoirte ways to wear them this fall and winter.trench 1

  1. Classy and casual: For running around town or any casual occasion, pair a simple striped shirt with some dark jeans, and simple ankle booties with a trench coat for a slightly nautical, classy look.
  2. A bit more dressy: If you want to dress things up just a smidge, layer a patterened button-up under a simple sweater, and pair that with a pair of black pants for a preppy, put-together look.
  3. Dressing it up: If you’re feeling really dressy, pair a cute collared dress with your trench coat. The collar will add a sweet simple touch to the outfit, and the dress gives the ensemble a feminine flair!

So what do you say, is a trench coat on your wish list now?

If you love preppy fashion, then you know about the seersucker trend. Seersucker is a pattern that combines white and pastel stripes and a little texture.  It is a very classy, preppy pattern that is perfectly girly. Here are a few ways to rock this sweet southern trend.

  1. Dress: To me, a seersucker dress is the perfect attire for any summer outing, whether it be a grad party, dinner with friends, or a Sunday church outfit! I love how nautical yet preppy the look is!seersucker
  2. Swimsuit: Oh my goodness I NEED a seersucker swimsuit. How adorable! Im pretty sure everyone on the planet would look totally stinkin’ cute in a seersucker suit. They just give you a subtle fiminity and are so classy. All the gals at the pool or beach will be totally jelly of your sweet suit!
  3. Ball Cap: Not a huge fan of the classic baseball hat? You are bound to love the seersucker version! It puts a girly spin on your classic cap. These are also perfect for those bad hair days where you really want to look adorable but your hair says ‘nah.’

What is your favorite seersucker item? I just cant choose… I love em all!

XOXO, Chels

School is here (gross!), but there are some advantages! What could possibly be the advantages of going back to school? I am glad you asked. Cute clothes, of course! Getting to rock your signature style to school is definitely a plus. I look forward to school for the sole purpose of getting to dress up! Every year the back to school styles change, and this year is no different. Here are this year’s hottest back to school styles.back to school

1.     Preppy pairs: The first back to school trend is preppy. Pair a blue buttton down, sleeves rolled up, with a colored pair of shorts and a brown leather belt to keep it classy! I love outfits like this because they are polished and pretty.

2.     Printed Pants: Printed pants, yaassss! Printed pants are all the rage right now. These pants are so comfy it should be a crime. Seriously! Pair them with a simple top and you will be in business.

3.     Striped Shirts: Anything nautical is a thumbs up in my book! That is why you can never have too many striped shirts. Classic boatneck striped shirts look great with dark denim, florals, and everything in between!

4.     Maxi Skirts: We all know I have an undying love for maxi skirts. These are another great comfy, casual back-to-school piece.

Good luck with your back to school adventures!

XOXO, Chels

Preppy Elbow Patches

elbow patches 1Elbow patches may seem like a thing of the past, but trust me, they are SO not. I just re-discovered the trend very recently and am so glad I did! Elbow patches add a hipster, preppy vibe to any sweater or long sleeved shirt. Here is how YOU can get hip with the trend!

  1. Sweater: Toss on an elbow patch sweater, dark skinnies, and riding boots for a super stylish, preppy fall every day outfit!
  2. Blazer: Nothing says “I am preppy AND classy, and super stylish to boot” like an elbow patch blazer. End of story.
  3. Shirt: This is one of the easiest way to rock the trend. Just pair a long sleeved elbow patch high low shirt with a pair of black leggings, boot socks, and riding boots. I would wear this look to school, to work, to church, out shopping, pretty much anywhere! If you want to make your outfit stand out, snag a shirt with GLITTER elbow patches!

I am going to be trying an elbow patch DIY here in the near future, so keep an eye out for that! I am going to attempt to add elbow patches to one of my old sweaters to spruce it up. Stay tuned!

XOXO, Chels
