Q and A with Cathleen

Hey Y'all, 
So on Instagram, I asked y'all to ask me questions, so that I could write a Question and Answer post! I am just going to list out the question and answer it to the best of my ability. I hope that y'all enjoy this post:)

1. Who inspired your preppy style? {Question from +lillypulitzer ck}
One of my friends showed me a Vineyard Vines catalog, and it kind of took off from there... 

2. What is your favorite Lilly Pulitzer item? {Question from +Lauren C}
My agenda. It is in the print Let's Cha Cha, and it has my monogram on the back! 

3. What are your favorite Instagram accounts? {Question from +meghan lovelillypulitzer and +thatclassygirl_  }
@lovelillypulitzer @lillypulitzerck @stylingandprofiling2 @style_by_salli @kjp @sarahkjp @golferprep @belleoftheball45 @preppyfashionistaa and @theclassyprepxo @thatclassygirl_

4. What are your favorite J.Crew necklaces? {Question from +thatclassygirl_}
I love the classic rosette necklace. I know they don't sell it anymore, but it will always be a favorite. 

5. About how many bows do you have? {Question from +Pinkpearlsandpulitzer}
I own about 12-15 bows. I often misplace them, so I'm not quite sure how many I own. The majority of my bows are from @bowsandkites and @southernlycharmed on instagram. 

6. When did you begin your preppy style? {Question from +ThePinkandGreenPrep}
Not too long ago. Maybe early last year... Before then, I didn't care about what I wore or what I looked like as much. I guess, as I got older, I saw the fashion, and I was inspired. 

7. What are your preppy must haves? {Question from @sassysouthernbellee}
Riding boots, Sperries, nude flats, a rosette necklace, large sparkly necklace, pearls, bows, monogrammed hats, scarves... I have many others, but I don't want to write a paragraph on them right now. Look for a future post to further answer this question.

"I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls"
-Audrey Hepburn

A rosette necklace, chambray shirt, infinity scarves, flats, a nice pair of sandals like Jack Rogers, and Sperries.

My Sperries and Riding Boots. I couldn't choose between the two :)

11. Do you always dress preppy, or do you like to dress in other styles also? {Question from +Allison Pittman}
My style is more of a casual preppy. Some days, my style will be more dressed up. I don't really go after any other distinct styles like Hipster or anything like that.
