I have always been a prepster at heart. Since I was young I have been wearing penny loafers, gingham and plaid shirts, wrap around skirts, toggle coats, and duck boots. Over the years I have tried out some new styles but the preppiness always stuck with me. In my punk rock stage I would wear my pop’s wing tips with my trench coat. In my mall chick stage you would find me with a bob and big bangs carrying my LL BEAN tote book bag. In college, trying to be a bit more mod but entering the world of farming I was caught between hippie and prep wearing tie dyes with my hunter boots and a barbour wax coat. I just could not shake the preps. So now that I have felt my way through a few kinds of styles it feels good to come full circle, head up high, and proud to be PREPPY. Yesterday I found a pair of penny loafers and a pair of Italian wing tip style shoes at Goodwill in the men’s section. Good thing I have big feet.
