Summer Wind is Sydney's personal style blog, where she shares her lovely classic style!
She was so sweet to answer a few questions!
1. You always look so classic and preppy! What do you think are the essentials for preppy style?
Thank you! Definitely basics like cable knit sweaters, a Barbour jacket, Lilly shifts, L.L. Bean ducks boots, etc. are staples. I always make sure to have at least one classic piece in my outfit... even if I'm wearing something trendy, like a leather skirt, I pair it with something classic, like a cashmere cable knit to "tone it down".
2. What is your favorite thing in your closet?
I have a 5 strand pearl necklace from J. Crew that I've had for years. I wear it at least once a week and always get compliments. It's classic with a twist, which is exactly how I like my style to be!
3. Who is your style icon?
This is a tough one. I love Jackie O and Samantha Stevens from Bewitched. I love the mod, shift dress cuts, but I also love Carolina Herrera who is feminine, classic, and has mastered refined elegance.
4. Define your style in three words.
Timeless, classic, with a twist (ok, that's five!)
5. What is your favorite season to dress up for?
I love love love summer because I love madras, seersucker, Lilly prints, eyelet, etc. But I also love around the holidays with all of the fair isle, silk taffeta, sequins, plaid, etc. My least favorite season to dress for is spring.
6. On a day off, you'd rather be...
Either skiing, by the pool/beach or sleeping.
7. What was the best part about starting Summer Wind?
Definitely the connections I have made! I have made life long friends through Summer Wind and have had some amazing experiences.
Thanks so much Sydney! It was a pleasure!
