I’ve always been prep. Back in the day, my best friend in high school chastised me (harshly, I might add) for ‘always’ wearing ditzy wallpaper prints that were so prep. A green and blue toile seemed to be particularly offensive to her eye. Now my niece tells me I’m so prep – she’s said that for so long and with such affection that it’s become a favored greeting.
So I embrace the term and my style. New Liberty of London print Keds Champions. Very pretty and doesn’t get any more prep than that!
