I am absolutely in love with these shorts that Dalila from Shop Konfetti sent me! They are lightweight, super well made, and the pom poms on them couldn't be any cuter. I cannot wait to wear them over and over in the warmer months to come! Their website is definitely worth checking out... they have adorable skirts, shorts with tassels and pom poms, and even mugs!

Stay tuned to my instagram (@yepitsprepblog) because I have teamed up with Shop Konfetti to host a giveaway! One lucky winner will recieve a pair of these "garden party" shorts!

Golden Hour

Shirt Polo Ralph Lauren | Skirt J. Crew Factory | Belt sold out (similar
Shoes Jack Rogers | Bracelet David Yurman

Last night, I wanted to take outfit photos on the beach so we headed to Tybee Island at golden hour. The traffic was horrendous, but the sunset was amazing! The wind was blowing at 30mph when we were taking these (the pics that didn't make this post are hilarious because of the wind and my hair going in all directions). Of course, my dad wanted to be in the last photo so I let him! 

I hope everyone has been having a lovely Memorial Day weekend!

Nine to Five

Dress: Banana Republic | Shoes: French Connection | Bag: Prada (similar
Necklace: J. Crew Factory (similar) | Cuff: C Wonder (similar) | Ring: Gorjana

I wore this dress to work today, and I think this outfit is perfect to wear for an internship! This Banana Republic dress is super comfortable and appropriate, but the back is fun! I did learn the hard way that bra straps will show (I was cringing while editing these photos because they're peeking out and it's my biggest pet peeve... whoops).

For work/internship outfits, I always recommend that you wear comfortable shoes that you can actually walk in and a modest dress that isn't too patterned or crazy (unless you have a fashion internship of some sort, lucky you). I also take a larger tote everyday that fits my water bottle, keys, wallet, and laptop. I tend to wear not too many accessories because I don't want to get distracted. What do y'all like to wear to work?

A Quick Chat With Emma from Dash Of Serendipity

I couldn't shoot an outfit post for today (my mom is out of town and she takes my photos), so I decided to do a mini interview with Emma from the blog Dash of Serendipity. I've been an avid reader of her blog for the past year, and she was one of the first tumblr users I followed. She has the cutest style and is super, super talented! I seriously cannot get enough of Emma/her blog.

What's the best book you've ever read?
Hands down the best book I ever read is Left to Tell by Imaculee Ilibagazia.  It's a true story about one girl's experience during the Rwanda Genocide.  It's really amazing to read her story and learn so much about a catastrophe that I really didn't know too much about prior to reading the book.  I've now read it three or four times! 

What's one thing that can always cheer you up on a bad day? 
Definitely playing my guitar! A lot of people don't know that I've been playing guitar for awhile and that I sing too! 

What is your favorite store to shop at?
Club Monaco! It's so dangerous for me to step inside because I love everything and find that things fit me well, but everything is so expensive! 

What is your all time favorite quote and why?
"Live life to express, not to impress" has been one of my favorites recently. It's a great phrase to live by, and I think it's important to be reminded that you should live for yourself and not for others. 

What inspired you to start your blog?
I'm not too sure really! I started my tumblr at the end of my eighth grade year (feels like forever ago now). I started it just for fun but about two years ago I decided to create my blogspot so that I could explore my interests in writing longer posts!

What is another passion of yours besides blogging?
I said this in a previous question, but I really love playing guitar! It's such a great hobby to have because it's creative and relaxing.  

What is one thing you want your readers to know about you that they don’t already know?
Hm.. this is a tough one! I feel like my readers know so much about me, when in reality they don't! 

What is the best meal you’ve ever had?
One of my favorite meals has been from a slider truck in Dallas, TX called Easy Slider.  The French Revolution is absolutely amazing–– Gruyere cheese, prosciutto and grilled onions on top of a great slider! 

What’s the prettiest place you’ve ever traveled to?
Iceland definitely! Last May I had the amazing opportunity to travel to the country with school and it was one of the greatest experiences.  I don't think I would've ever gone normally and I think this was the best way to see the amazingly beautiful country.  Iceland is really something else, so if you ever have the opportunity to go, I'd highly recommend it! 

Do you think you’ve changed over the past year as you’ve gone through freshman year of college?
I think so.  I feel like I've gotten a lot more independent, even though I was already fairly independent before leaving for school.  I'm definitely more comfortable doing things on my own now, and I think I've gotten more confident in myself.  

Do you think that your style has evolved in the past 2 semesters?
My style has definitely evolved.  I went to a private high school where almost everyone dressed in very preppy outfits, and while my college is known for being fairly preppy it's nothing like the high school I went to.  I'm happy about this, but I've definitely seen my style lose a little of the preppy influences.  I've started incorporating more trendy pieces to my wardrobe (I even purchased a pair of ripped jeans the other day!).  A few years ago, I would've never thought I'd be wearing some of these things.

Weekend Maxi

Dress and Shoes: J. Crew Factory | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Necklace: Thrifted (similar)
Bracelets: Kendra Scott

This J. Crew Factory maxi is my new favorite dress. Its pattern is adorable, and the dress is super comfortable. I usually do not gravitate towards long dresses, but as soon as I saw this in the store, I snatched it and practically ran to the fitting rooms. I wore it to brunch this weekend, and I will definitely pack it in my suitcase for my upcoming trip to Aruba. It is light and breezy enough to wear on the beach, and it goes great with gold jewelry and tan accessories!

Also, if you are looking for cute bracelets/cuffs like the Kendra Scott ones I'm wearing, you should check out Rocksbox! You can try it for a month free (with no commitment) with the code "yepitsprepxoxo" so be sure to check it out! I hope everyone had a great weekend!
