Am I Preppy yet?

Hey Lovelies! Welcome back to the second post of the Am I...yet? series! I'm so happy and trilled about the feedback that I have received from first post and hope for many more, I love when people comment on my posts! Also you can always create you're own preppy or edgy looks and post them on instagram using the hashtag #sarcasminheels. I would love to seed how you rock your style!
Anyway onto the post.

The term preppy comes from private, university-preparatory or prep schools that rich young students usual attend. Think of it as school chic or Old money high. There is some class and tradition that go hand and hand with this style. While when we think preppy we tend to think of it as dressing like a snob or spending a lot of money.(As if!)

Some pop culture examples of the preppy style are....

Trends for July!

Hey fashion friends! So for the long time, no post. I've been super  busy working on my novel and crying over Go Set A Watchman (Don't worry you'll here all about it--Or maybe you should be worried) Anyway here are my trends for July!!

Jumpsuit I love 70's fashion! I loved That 70's Show and American Hustle mainly because of the fashion, my favorite being jumpsuit which I'm super happy is coming back in style. They're so perfect! It's both a shirt and pants so you don't have to waste all that energy putting them on separately! Jumpsuit are prefect for going out to dinner, running errands or just hanging out with your girls!
Lace shorts  Okay, I'll admit it, I wasn't the hugest fan of lace shorts when I first saw them. The first few I tried on were baggy and the lace wasn't where I quite wanted it. However, I've grown to love this trend! July is shorts weather, no if, ands or buts about it and while denim shorts are great and go along w…
