LIFE UPDATE: MAY 2021






OUTFIT DETAILS: DRESS | SHOES | WATCH|

Hiyaaa everyone! How are you doing?? Happy May, goodness, how time flies! It’s been a while since my last blog post and I have sooooo much to share with you all 🙂 I mentioned in this blog post how I was starting my final semester of college…and boy was it a tough one! After my first week, I was so stressed out of my mind… 6 classes, 18 credit hours, will do that to anyone…so I decided somethings had to be put on pause to keep my head on straight. Thankfully, I managed to pass all my classes with amazing grades and am now back with tons of exciting plans for my blog!! I can’t thank all of you who have stuck with me for the last five months, it’s been a wild time and I’m excited to catch y’all up to speed.

At the end of April, I graduated with my class of 2021 and was lucky enough to have and attend our commencement ceremony. It was so exciting to reunite with classmates after transitioning to online classes due to the pandemic in the middle of my college career. It was such a fun day and a memory I will cherish for a lifetime. Since our commencement ceremony was announced so last minute, I didn’t have the time to hunt down a new dress (totally blaming having finals on this one haha), but thankfully a perk of being a fashion influencer is being able to constantly shop my own closet (LOL)! I pulled out one of my favorite white dresses with a pair of simple cork heeled sandals for the occasion.

Graduation weekend was a blur! It went by so quickly and was so busy seeing old friends, celebrating with family and buying a Nintendo Switch with my boyfriend John. John and I decided to buy a switch together as our graduation present to one another…we also have been eye-ing it for the last few months…let’s just say totally worth the splurge! Ya girl is totally addicted to Animal Crossings- it’s sooo much fun! Side-note: I’m just so happy we bought it after graduating since any homework would have never gotten done haha!

I am so excited for this next chapter of my life (especially since I don’t have any more homework to do) and that I get to follow my passion. I have known for awhile that after my graduation I am able to do “KellyPrepster” full-time as my job! Ahhhhh!!! It still doesn’t seem real but hard work pays off, and a huge thank you to all all of YOU who support me!

As much as I have shared about my college experience, I haven’t. I wanted to keep a lot of it more private due to my safety and own privacy, but I do want to share a little more with you all since the time feels right! Over on my Instagram, I hosted a Q&A (or watch this video) to answer any questions you might have with what I’ve been up to and I’m excited tot share!

Q: What school did you attend and what was your major?

A: I went to the University of Cincinnati and majored in Electronic Media.

Q: What is your next step in life? Work? University?

A: I am so grateful that I am able to work full time for myself as a social media Influencer and couldn’t be more excited! I will continue sharing blog posts, youtube videos and posting to Instagram! I am not continuing my education further, but never say never! 🙂

Q: Did you join a sorority while In college?

A: I didn’t, just wasn’t for me.

Q: What’s your dream profession/career?

A: I’ve always wanted to own my own business and it’s so exciting watching it all happen! I find social media marketing so interesting and love that I get to do it as my job.

Q: Will you be expanding your small business on Etsy?

A: YES!! I have been working on some new products recently and can’t wait to share once they are LIVE 🙂

If you want ALL the scoop be sure to go check out my Q&A video on YouTube, I got a little more in depth! I am so happy to be back on my blog and have a lot of fun NEW content to share with you, get excited!! Just another thanks for sticking with me as I finished up finals and my college career, it was a rough one! I am wishing you all a great week!! And sending congratulations to all the other 2021 graduates, YOU GOT THIS!!

PINK PRINCESS PHONE



OUTFIT DETAILS: SHIRT | SWEATER | JEANS | HEADBAND | WATCH

Hiiyaaaa friends!! Ahhh, I can’t believe how fast this this week is going by…guess time flies when you’re having fun. Since the start of the pandemic, I have rediscovered my love for talking on the phone (ya girl can talk for hours lol). Chatting on the phone has been so nice to reconnect with friends and family during these times. I personally LOVE a phone call or FaceTime call over a text any day, (please let me know I’m not the only one) since it feels more engaging than a text message. Of course, for the purpose of this post I had to break out my vintage pink princess phone!

Today’s outfit is such a classic prep look and I am obsessed with it! A sweater tossed over a button down is such a fun preppy layering style and is sooo practical if you get cold later on. This pink pinstripe Ralph Lauren button down is a must have in my wardrobe. I also have been loving the headband trend…this one is over the top sparkly!!

BACK TO SCHOOL



OUTFIT DETAILS: SHIRT | JEANS | SOCKS | SHOES | SCRUNCHIE

Hey hey hey! Oh my gosh, I can’t believe winter break is officially over and classes have started back up. I wanted to share a funny first day of school reality update with all of you! I’ve always dressed up on my first day of classes and entering my last semester of collage, I expected no less…but six online classes said otherwise (hahahaha :,-))! This is my first (and thankfully last) time taking 6 classes, 18 credit hours, and on the first day, I felt so overwhelmed I just wanted to stay extra comfortable (aka no makeup & an oversized hoodie).

What I was hoping to wear, was one of my favorite pink and yellow striped tops from J.Crew. I always love dressing up on the first day of class. I love shirts like this that are comfortable since; I’m a big believer if you wear something you are comfortable in, more likely you are going to feel confident in it. Of course, my Sperry Penny Loafers just scream back to school and are perfect for the occasion. I know with my upcoming Zoom class meetings I’ll be wearing more cute back to school outfits, so stay tuned!

CURRENTLY READING (JAN 2021)



OUTFIT DETAILS: TURTLENECK | SKIRT | WATCH | BRACELETS | NAILS

Hello! One of my goals for the new year is to read at least one book every month. I have always LOVED reading…I just don’t always make time for it. I decided it was time to make it a priority and recently started including it into my morning routine…talk about a game changer! I am currently reading two books (please tell me I’m not the only one who reads multiple books at the same time?!). I like reading two books because I’ll read one non-fiction and one fiction book…so I get the best of both worlds.

The non-fiction book I am currently reading is called “Influencer” by Brittany Hennessy. “Influencer” creates an interesting topic of the ins and outs of being (& becoming) a social media influencer. While my fiction book is called “Summer And The City” by Candace Bushnell. Ahhh I LOVE Candance Bushnell’s books, she is the author of Sex And The City….the book I am reading is part of her prequel series! I would love to hear about your favorite books or if you have any recommendations.

PINK POLO PERFUME



OUTFIT DETAILS: SHIRT | JEANS | HEADBAND | WATCH | BRACELETS

Hey there! Today I want to talk about one of my all time favorite perfumes. I think it’s so much fun to have a signature scent…a simple thing that makes you stand out. I have been wearing Ralph Lauren’s Big Pony Collection #2 perfume for what feels like forever now and still can’t get enough of it! I love how the scent is refreshing but not too overwhelming.

Of course, with my #45DaysOfPink Challenge going on I had to wear something pink! I love this Vineyard Vines long sleeve, it’s simple but a classic. My headband matches my shirt perfectly. Headbands are one of my new favorites and this one is so cute with the little pearls on it. If you use my hashtag #45DaysOfPink on Instagram and tag me @kellyprepster I will be reposting and sharing your pink outfits on my Instagram!

5 WAYS TO STYLE A SWEATER

Hi friends! Oh my gosh…happy Wednesday!! That might be a first, since I usually only post on Tuesday and Thursday…but today is a special day. Today, I am doing my first ever blog collaboration with my new friend, Molly! Ahhhhh- this is so crazy to me and I couldn’t be happier! I’ve been following Molly on Instagram @ gracefullygingham forever and we got talking and oh my gosh, y’all need to check her out (& her blog)!! We thought it would be fun to share 5 different ways to style a sweater for Fall. I am wearing the same sweater in all of these outfits and styled some of my favorite essentials to make 5 fun but easy-to-put together outfits, I hope you enjoy!


OUTFIT DETAILS: SWEATER (SIMILAR) | JEANS | BOOTS | WATCH

Eekksss, the first outfit is the most simple but you know what they say, “simple but effective”! I love wearing outfits like this, especially for transitioning into the Fall at the beginning of the season… or if you live somewhere a little warmer in the Fall. I just paired my favorite pair of skinny jeans from Abercombie and Fitch and this sweater together with a cute pair of booties.


OUTFIT DETAILS: SWEATER (SIMILAR) | TURTLENECK| SKIRT | BOOTS | WATCH

This outfit turned out to be my new favorite (I’m even wearing it in this video) and it’s a completely new layering combination for me….who would have thought a turtleneck under a sweater would look so cute!? I LOVE IT!!! I can’t forget to mention, how perfect this layering combination will be for cold snowy days (…eeekkkss not going to think about the cold weather…yet haha).


OUTFIT DETAILS: SWEATER (SIMILAR) | VEST| JEANS | BOOTS | WATCH

Fall is the perfect season for wearing a vest and they look adorable with a sweater underneath. This outfit is very similar to the first one; but all you have to do is throw a vest on top (of course I wanted to switch up my shoes haha). I love how easy vest are to layer and they are so practical for transiting into the Fall since some days are colder than others.


OUTFIT DETAILS: SWEATER (SIMILAR) | FLANNEL | JEANS | BOOTS | WATCH

If you know me, you might now this is my go-to Fall outfit. I have been obsessed with layering a flannel under a sweater since I got into the preppy style. I think it’s such a cute look and I love how the flannel (or button-down) you chose to wear underneath can make the sweater look totally different due to all the different color possibilities.


OUTFIT DETAILS: SWEATER (SIMILAR) | SKIRT | FLANNEL | LOAFERS | WATCH

Like the last outfit, this outfit includes a flannel under my sweater…what can I say, I love the look of it! I mention in this video, 5 ways to style a sweater, how you can change any outfit by changing what style bottoms you are wearing. I swapped out my high rise skinny jeans for this adorable skirt from J.Crew and love how different the outfit looks.

I would love to know which of the 5 outfits is your favorite, let me know in the comments! & A HUGE THANK YOU to Molly for collabing with me on this post, I am so grateful and exctied to be blogging friends (YOU are seriously soooo stinkin’ sweet)!! Again, be sure to check out her blog & youtube, y’all will love her style!!

CHEETAH PRINT AND STRIPES




OUTFIT DETAILS: JEANS | TURTLE NECK | WATCH | BRACELETS | SHOES | SCRUNCHIE

Hi again! If you know me, you know how much I love mixing different prints and I love the look of mixing cheetah print and stripes together. I think mixing different prints together can make an ordinary outfit “POP”. This outfit is so simple, but that’s one of the many reasons I love it!

I love the look of a turtle neck tucked into high waisted jeans for Fall. My turtle neck is more fitted and is white with black stripes from Talbots. Every time I where this turtle neck I feel like I could be in New York working in the fashion world. I thought adding theses cheetah print loafers from VanEli would make this outfit “POP” a little more. Outfits like these are perfect for transitioning into Winter since you can just throw on a sweater or warm coat.

PUMPKIN PATCH DATE IN MY FAVORITE FALL DRESS




OUTFIT DETAILS: DRESS | BOOTS | WATCH | NECKLACE

Hello there! Oh my gosh, let’s talk about my new favorite Fall dress! This dress from Sailor-Sailor has been worn on repeat this season. Earlier this Fall, I shared a Fall bucket-list video on my YouTube and was so excited to go on a pumpkin patch date with my boyfriend, John! Turns out, we actually went to a Fall farm, which was just as much fun! The Fall farm had a sunflower field, pumpkin patches, hayrides, animals (eekksss see the baby goats?!) and lots of tasty Fall treats.

My dress is made of moisture wicking material which is so perfect for warmer Fall days or if you live where it’s pretty warm in the Fall. I think riding boots are a Fall essential and love styling them with dresses. These riding boots are some of my all time favorites. If you look closely on the last photo, I’m holding my Vlog camera since I vlogged going to the pumpkin patch if you want to watch on YouTube. It was such a fun Fall date idea and wearing the perfect outfit made it even better!
