I am in Burlington Vermont for a conference and the minute I got off of the plane I was reminded immediately I was no longer in California. The style is so different I just had to see a teenager to remember. I would call it Preppy Popsicle or something to that effect. It's gorgeous Popsicle colors, creamy yellow, orange and pink.
I went into a boutique in the cute small downtown pedestrian street and it was all Lilly Pulitzer and Juicy Couture. My time in California has clearly altered my perspective on preppy, I need to find some pictures and load them up to show the difference.
And if you want to get the preppy look, look for Tibi, Lilly Pulitzer and Juicy Couture, and mix it all together.
