Growing up I was pretty preppy, sometimes very. Mostly, it worked.
In fact when I look at my senior year high school yearbook picture, I’m not at all embarrassed. Blue blazer, white button-down, skinny red silk rep tie.
I still wear that outfit...I am proud of how I dressed back then!
One item that has always stayed part of my wardrobe are my Clarks Desert Boots. I have worn them since grade school.
Total classic at a great price, and so comfortable.
They recently started making them in some fun colors and I have been wearing the blue ones. It’s just a nice twist, enough to get noticed without trying too hard, and they perk up a humdrum outfit.
