Over the past year I’ve slowly been migrating away from dressing like a preppy southern belle. When I came to college I was definitely guilty of being one of those girls whose style completely changed to adapt to the ultra-conservative and Lily-Pulitzer-wearing environment surrounding her. Since I go to a southern school there is never a shortage of J Crew-clad girls and bow-tie-sporting boys (gag) wherever I go. But every once in a while my uber-preppiness will return just like it did this past weekend at my sorority’s alumni tea party. I was also beyond excited when we were told we could wear a derby hat (helllooooooo lovely Forever21 $5 floppy hat)!
I love the gold chain detail on this Milly dress. The design of it is simple but so flattering at the same time. This was the first time I wore it and it still fit like a glove like it did in the dressing room over a year ago.
I wanted to wear sandals but didn’t really have any that matched. These Via Spiga slingbacks had to do.
Pictures from the tea party! My sisters all looked so lovely.
Tea party food!

Has your style ever been influenced by the people around you? What do you think of my super preppy look?
