Another West Coast Prep

Hi! My name is Grace and I began my blogging adventures in August of 2012 on my own blog, Preppy On The West Coast. I am a girl living on the West Coast who dresses as though she lives on the East Coast. A few of my favorite things are: Vera Bradley, J. Crew, Pink and Green, Monogramming, and Lilly Pulitzer. I basically love all things preppy! However, since I am born and raised on the West Coast, I do add a bit of a twist to the classic preppy look, by including the laidback California style into my everyday outfits, so think of me as, The Prep On The West Coast.  Here are some fun facts about me:

1 – I will eat caramel with anything.

2 – J. Crew is my favorite store. 
3 – Tretorns are my go-to sneakers. 
4 – The Clinque Chubby Sticks are my favorite lip products. #DefinitelyCheckThemOut
5 – I live in fuzzy socks to the point that I sleep in them. 
6 – Starbucks is my addiction to the point where the people know my first name… #Whoops?
7 – I can ONLY write with ball point pens. 
8 – Instagram is by far my favorite app. #FollowMe – @westcoastpreppy
9 – If I could be anywhere in the world, I would be at the beach… (Specifically Naples, FL)
10 – I wear running shorts… all the time. 
11 – I am a reality TV show junkie and I watch reality shows ranging from Survivor to the Bachelor to The Real Housewives…

QUESTION TIME!!!

Ashley’s Questions
1. If you could have any piece of clothing item, what would it be?
Hmmm, definitely a hard choice – I guess, since spring and summer are right around the corner I would have to go with a fun summer dress… I LOVE this one from Kate Spade {click here}! It’s definitely a classic dress with the nautical stripes and the white/navy combo!
2. Where is your favorite place to be?
The beach… #CaliforniaGirlProbz
3. How did you start blogging?
I had a blog my fresman year in high school, which was privated, for only myself and my family to see, and I thought it was so much fun to document things, and have my posts actually be “published”, so last August (2012), I chose to make this blog which ANYONE could see!
4. What are your favorite stores?
I LOVE J. Crew, Nordstrom, H&M and Forever 21 for the occasional find!
5. If there is one thing about yourself that you could change, what would it be?
Hmmm… I guess that I could be mroe flexible/pull cool gymanstics tricks! #WhoDoesn’t
6. Why do you love blogging?
The friends I’ve made! Due to blogging I have made tons of new friends which I most likely never would’ve met otherwise!

dWa’s Questions

Curly.

A girl in my French class the other day wore mint jeans and a purple, slightly flowy top, which I thought was a really cute combination!

10. If you were heading to college, what color would your comforter be? (I need y’alls help!)
Hmmm… Maybe a bright pink to help you perk up after a long day of classes, or a mint color?! You can also never go wrong with white and add lots of fun accent pillows or a blanket?
11. Favorite Blog Post you’ve written?
Hmmm… This is definitely a tricky one! I guess, I would have to go with my post about my Top 5 Favorite Starbucks Drinks, because I definitely think it is a different sort of post in contrast to others’, and it really shows my obsession that I went to the extent of actually doing a post… #SorryNotSorry
So excited to be blogging for T&V!

Setting Sail with The OC Prep

 

Hey everyone!  I’m Savannah (The OC Prep), newest addition to the T & V staff and the first West Coast correspondent.  Born and raised in Newport Beach, California, I’ve grown up surrounded by all things prep: sailing, golden retrievers, cottages, art museums, yacht clubs, golf courses, monograms… I’ll be covering everything from weekends in Catalina (wine mixers, anyone?), to style spotting at Brooks Brothers on Rodeo Drive, to Duffy Electric Boat cruises in the Newport Harbor.  I’m more than overjoyed to begin my journey with loyal readers from all over the country and bring light to prep life in the West!
