About Me

Hi! I'm Elizabeth and welcome to Tall and Preppy, my online diary filled with fashion, travel, advice and life on Long Island.


I have always believed that fashion is a way of showing one's personality.

I consider myself a girly girl, who loves pink and frilly pieces but at the same time a classic girl, because I know that classic pieces such as a crisp white button down, a strand of pearls and a good pump never go out of style! At the same time, I like to have fun with my style and wear trendy items sometimes, that may not be deemed “preppy.” However, at the end of the day I know that classic and preppy pieces are what look the best and always work for me. 


I created this blog before my senior year of high school, in the summer of 2015, to document my style throughout my last year in high school and all the way through college and beyond.


This blog would not exist without my mom, my fashion icon and my role model. I am 100% my mother’s daughter; we look alike, dress alike and talk alike. My mom and Stacy and Clinton on What Not to Wear taught me everything I know about fashion. My mom was the one that went to fashion school and was the one who pushed me to create a blog to hopefully inspire others through my clothes.


Tall and Preppy has dramatically transformed over the years. I started by blogging the best year of my high school career with applying to colleges, going to prom, winning awards and graduating.


Tall and Preppy followed me down to North Carolina, where I continued to post and share about life in the south. I had a difficult time figuring out what to major in, but once I connected the dots that I loved to write, blog, and communicate, it was a no-brainer that I would be an English major. I graduated Wake Forest University in 2020 with a double major in English and French Studies. 


Since going to college, my blog has grown with me as I have continued to grow as a person, a writer and a fashionista. My little corner of the internet that started as a hobby has now become a part-time business. I am proud to be an entrepreneur.


In May of 2023, I graduated from the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University.


Without even knowing it, Tall and Preppy has become a huge part of my life both personally and professionally. My blog is a huge portfolio of my writing, my style and my life that interviewers love to see. My blog is also a testament to my ability to be passionate, diligent, and highly organized. I never thought my blog would be an asset in interviews or jobs, but it really is and I am so thankful for it.


I have seen myself grow up over this blog and I am so proud of how far I have come both personally and professionally. Thank you to my family, friends, and anyone and everyone that has followed me along on this journey and has supported me in this crazy blogging adventure.


I hope you enjoy a look into my life!
