Ok. Confession time, y’all. Can you believe this tattooed, Portlander, artist girl was once in a sorority? Hahaha. I can’t either. Kappa Kappa Gamma, ladies. But that was just what you did in the South in college. And parts of it were a serious blast. And we wore all the preppy 90’s clothing you can imagine.
These days I don’t work in an office or have the need (or desire) to dress the same way I once did, but I still find myself drawn to a few things you’d consider preppy…like crisp cotton tops in blue and white stripe. I die over them. I cannot quit the stripes. Ever. But I always have to play with ways to make these structured, put-together pieces more me. That usually means black or ripped denim and, in this case, it meant both!
