A Preppy Post…

As you should all know, I’m spending this summer in Nantucket.  The vacation destination has a reputation for being pretentiously preppy.  I’ve never really been into seersucker pants, polo shirts or boat shoes.  Living in the city, my style has always gravitated towards the edgy, dark colored, studded look.  Since it’s not really practical to wear black all summer (I’ve debated this many times), I’ve decided to test the preppy waters.  I’m not saying I’m going to be popping my collar any time soon, but there are a few preppy additions I have added to my everyday apparel.  Here are some easy ways to incorporate summer prep into your wardrobe without going by the name Muffy or Chip.

Let’s talk about Leighton Meester…

Ok so I’ve been having a bad week. After a tragic St. Patrick’s day and a long Wednesday of skipping most of my classes, the only thing that managed to cheer me up was the most recent episode of Gossip Girl. It wasn’t a great episode, but Leighton Meester always seems to lighten up my day. I love her catty vindictive depiction of Blair Waldorf. Not only does she represent Blair from the Gossip Girl books impeccably, but she manages to look amazing while doing it. I have to say, usually I don’t really like the preppy, over pretentious look of the some of the upper east siders on Gossip Girl.  Somehow, Leighton’s pretty prep look manages to work.  

Here are a few of my favorite Leighton Meester outfits…
