5 Year Anniversary of Tall and Preppy

Wow five years!
So much has changed since I first started Tall and Preppy 5 years ago today.

One of my followers gave me this idea and I thought it was brilliant.
So, keep scrolling to see what I looked like, what I wore and what I was going through five years ago compared to today.

Five years ago, on July 5th, 2015, I posted my first blog post, “Summer Night Out,” using an old photo from my trip to Florida from a couple weeks before. I am cringing a bit looking at that post now.

Back in 2015, I was going into my senior year of high school. I had bad grammar, cringe captions and cringe post titles. I posted 111 blog posts from July to the end of the year. I was obsessed with blogging and writing and that hasn’t changed.

I documented what it was like to be a senior in high school on Long Island. I talked about homecoming, prom, rejection, badminton, NYC, passing my road test, visiting colleges, theater, visiting Disney, sweet 16s, AP tests, senior events, graduation and my last day of high school.

I remember all of these events like it was yesterday.

July 5, 2020, I am now a recent Wake Forest University graduate and I am going to Hofstra Law School in the fall.

This year I documented what it was like taking the LSAT, going to homecomingturning 21, going to Vegas, going to Brooklyn, attending date functions, dorm room tour, how to party at Wake, why I picked Wake, boy tips, visiting the Outerbanks and Asheville, going to a vineyard, working with Jack Rogers, sorority recruitment, Phi Alpha Delta, working with Rent the Runway, my fear of the gym, all the classes I took at Wake, long distance, sorority life, and what it was like being a senior in college.

I also documented the end of my senior year which consisted of a cruise during corona virus, online classes and an online graduation.

I have grown and changed tremendously over the past five years. I think it is evident on my blog. The content has changed as I have changed and grown. 
I now know how to use spell check. I am more organized, and I plan out what I am going to blog about. I am even able to monetize my blog.

My style is one of the things that has been pretty constant within the past five years. It has only changed a bit. I still have some accessories from 5 years ago, but I am still rocking the preppy look.

I am the most confident and independent I have ever been.
I am the happy, well-spoken and confident woman I imagined I would be 5 years ago.

Thank you for following me, even if it hasn’t been for 5 years. It means the world to me.
I love you all so much.
Thank you for help making my dreams come true.
