The New LA Prep

Last Sunday while I was reading the Image section of the LA Times an article caught my attention.  The LA Times had a article about the resurgence of the preppy look.  LA being a laid back more casual city, we add our own twist to the preppy look. Read the article A Field Guide To The LA Preps  full details.

I did a blog post about my shopping finds from my San Diego trip awhile back and showed you pics of my top sider/boat shoes. I finally wore them & felt so preppy.  I never been a true preppy, but do like some elements of the preppy style. I love boat shoes and cardigans, just like to wear them in a more casual laid back manner. Also living in a beach town, everyone wear flip flops, shorts & tees. So can you imagine me walking around town in a preppy gossip girl outfit!  I would totally stand out like a sore thumb....LOL
Never really been one to enjoy being the center of attention so I tone it down and did my own version of LA Preppy. Let me know what you think of my "preppyish" look. How do you feel about the preppy look and have you seen people with that look in your city/town?
