i have never been a "prep". living in the south, it sometimes feels like the only way to be different is to not be preppy. now don't get me wrong, i see the appeal. i have some vineyard vines shirts and a southern tide baseball cap. they are comfortable and safe and remind me of the beach. there's nothing-how could anything be?- wrong with that. but very little southern cotton appeals to me as strongly as, say, a reworked vintage band tee from urban outfitters. but, like i've said before, i'm not going to completely rule out seersucker and pastels as something i "hate". of course, a huge exception is this dress, which you might remember me mentioning. it is so light and versatile, and the back is absolutely gorgeous (which is hard to tell because we shot on an unusually windy day. oops!). i couldn't help but edge it up with some chelsea boots. anything else would've made me feel like i was wearing a costume. how do you remix pieces you wouldn't normally wear to make "your own"? i'd love to hear from you!
y'all come back, now.
documenting the fun years.
