Getting to know the Preptista

About a week ago, I was nominated by Dana to answer some questions about blogging and life. I was super excited that I to be one of the 11 bloggers Dana chose and I can't wait for you to read my answers to her questions!



How did you come up with your blog name? Obviously, "Preptista" is a coined term, but to be honest not much thought went into coming up with that name. I had a list of other possibilities, but when it all came down to it, this one had the best ring to it. I looked it up online and it wasn't taken already, so I went with it! (and the rest is history...)

What's your ultimate go-to outfit? Well it really depends on the season, but during the summer I pretty much live in my Lilly shorts and chambray popover and during the winter I love pairing my jeans and riding boots (similar to mine) with a button down and puffer vest!

Top three blogs to read... Man Repeller for a hilarious sense of humor, The College Prepster for, well, pretty much everything, and Design Darling for to-die-for interior design and fashion. 

If you could work for your dream company, what would it be and what would you be doing? Hands down, it would be Vogue. My dream is to become a senior editor, or who knows, may be even Editor-In-Chief! (Watch out Anna Wintour!)

What are some of your favorite posts you've written on your blog? It's always kind of funny when people ask me this for a couple reasons. A) I don't actually remember all the posts I've written since there have been so many and B) most of the posts that were my favorite to write were'nt actually my most popular! That being said, I really, really loved this outfit post and this inspiration post.

Name the one item you don't leave your house without and why. As much as I hate to admit it, I definitely have to say my iPhone. My phone basically runs my life and I pretty much feel "naked" without it. it's really hard being such a "media" person because sometimes I can get lost on my phone and not even realize it, so when I'm out with family or friends, I really try and make a conscious effort to only look at my phone if I absolutely must. (even though I'm not very good at that!)

It's almost fall: What's on your wishlist? I am in love with this J.Crew sweater and it's on sale! 

Who is your style icon? I wouldn't say I have one style icon, but I definitely get inspiration from Jackie O., Carly Heitlinger, Sydney Carver, and Mackenzie Horan.

Is there one day you wish you could relive over and over. I think if I were to relive an amazing day, it would start to get boring and end up not being as great anymore, so probably not. 

If you had to pick a decade to live in, which one would it be? I've always felt like I should have born somewhere in the 50's or 60's.

What's your ultimate goal for your blog? I think every blogger secretly wants their blog to grow and "get famous" and I would be lying if I said that I've never had those wishes before too. I don't see myself blogging for the rest of my life, but who knows what the future holds! Right now I'm blogging because it's my passion and it makes me truly happy and unless I find something I enjoy doing more than blogging, say, I don't know, being editor of Vogue, I'm going to keep doing it.
