I’m planning a girl’s trip to Atlanta soon and I am going to use this as an excuse to update my wardrobe. I recently purchased a sleeveless jacket, but since it’s getting warmer and our plans currently revolve mostly around lunching, brunching, and being outside, I am actually going to go for a sweet southern preppy look.

This look is perfect when you’re outside by the water. The shirt is a small white and blue polka dot short-sleeve button-up, with the sleeves rolled up. It is loosely opened and tied at the bottom to look fresh and breeze and keep you cool. It’s paired with light pink shorts that have an amazing navy blue trim at the waist.

She accessorizes the outfit perfectly with sunglasses, beaded bracelets, wedges, and a woven straw bag.

When outside on the back patio garden at a B&B or little brunch spot this light blue sleeveless seersucker dress feels fresh, airy, and light.

Wear your hair down and pair with a bangle bracelet and a woven straw clutch.

It’s pretty likely that you’ll find yourself outside an outdoor concert at some point. This light blue poplin button-up has long sleeves, but looks so cute slightly rolled. Plus, if it gets cold when the sun goes down, you can always unroll them. The light green and white print shorts pop against the color of the light blue shirt. The matching light green purse brings the whole thing together.

Accessorize with a thin olive braided belt, some loose bangles, and a starfish bracket.

When waiting for an open table at a hot brunch spot, it’s likely you’ll find yourself outside admiring the flowers. This white long sleeve shirt with lace accenting, with blue and white checkered shorts is so sweet southern preppy it makes my eyes water. The floral leather purse, leopard sunglasses, emerald ring, and gold watch put this whole outfit together nicely.

When picnicking outside in the park, you’re going to want to look your best. This light blue poplin button-up looks great with the sleeves rolled. The black and white striped shorts with a thick brown belt with black and brown might not work on their own. However, because the wedges match the belt and shorts and ties in perfectly with the straw hat with a black band, it looks amazing.

Pair this with light blue mirror lens aviator sunglasses, gold watch, and gold bangles. Also don’t forget your large black leather bag to carry your picnic essentials: wine, grapes, small charcuterie board! Hey!

Dashing out for lunch with friends and don’t have a ton of time? Try a white poplin button-up with white paints for a super easy put-together look. To tie it all together and not look too monochrome, simply pick a secondary color of your accessories. Brown belt with gold buckle, brown beaded bracelet, gold bangles, gold watch, tortoiseshell sunglasses. Stunning!

At a bakery picking up a coffee before a work meeting? You’ll want to try this blue and white striped dress with a drawstring that helps this dress keep a great shape.

Pair it with tan sandals, a white leather purse, silver bracelet, and pearl drop earrings. Everyone will be so impressed by your sweet southern prep looks that they won’t mind that you forgot your lid!
