Ask Preppy Girl – Weekend Rendezvous

If you have a question for the Preppy Girl email it to me at

Dear Preppy Girl,

Three years ago, when I was 19, I met the “The One that Got Away,” because he was in the military he was shipped out and stationed elsewhere. We keep in touch and I send him Christmas cards. Now he’s invited me to come visit him down South for 4th of July weekend! I’m super excited. However, my wardrobe is still kind of young-looking in the way of summer clothes. I have the winter young 20s wardrobe down but nothing classy in the summer department. Please point me in the right direction where I can pull off the Kate Middleton-young 20s but still classy in 115 degrees look.

Sweating in the Summer Heat

Dear Sweating in the Summer Heat,
First off, I hope your weekend is everything you expect and more!!! Sounds like a fairytale minus the 115 degree weather. I hope your weekend turns out perfect. I am sure you have already selected a fab weekend wardrobe. If not, here are a few more last minute suggestions.

Sundresses: A cute and flirty way to beat the heat. I love sundresses because they are so easy to pull together. You can look casual and elegant at the same time. Be sure to dress them up with earrings and a few bangles.

  • Stripes– You can’t go wrong
  • Solids – Always a classic
  • Patterns – Look for small prints, they are easier to wear.

Dressy Tanks: Great because they go from day to night. Pair these cute tops with shorts in the day and a mini skirt at night.

Be sure to pack sunglasses and bikini or two, just in case you go swimming. Have a wonderful weekend!
