After moving to North Carolina, it became apparent to me that what I had always labeled as “sorority chic” in Florida is actually the essence of the Southern woman’s style. That being said, I’ve never considered myself a preppy girl, though I have tried my hand at it once or twice and quickly realized it just isn’t me. This is the land of flats, button downs, and bright color, and in honor of that I decided to try a spin on the North Carolina preppy look. I will always be a beach girl at heart, but sometimes it’s just fun to try new things, right? Either way, this spin-off kept me comfortable, somewhat Southern, and beach ready all at once.
I really love mixing textures in outfits and this was no exception. I paired my lovely chambray top with a loose cotton short, calf hair flats, and a sleek yet casual handbag – add some pearls and a hint of glam and BAM, there you go!
