Preppy but Laid-Back Summer ClassicsChelsea Fuss
I’ll always steer a little preppy in my clothing choices but I like things laid-back too (perhaps I’ve been rooted in the West Coast too long?). Nothing says summer like checks and stripes and sweet, spare florals in pinks, reds, yellows, blues with plenty of white. Take a peek at these crisp, bright summer classics, after the jump.
