Who You Are

"I am who I am, we wouldn't be who we are, without our scars,"



hey y'all! today i have a totally different post for y'all. but it's something i've been struggling with for a little bit, but something we all need to accept. ourselves. and today is all about wants.

because yolo is real, and we only have enough time in this world to be only us; and not who others want us to be.
i guess its been a rocky year. finding myself, and who i'm meant to be; its all part of this. i started preppystylebymira to embrace who i am, and who i want to be.

i dont want to listen to pop music and wear all black.
i want to listen to country music and wear hot pink!

i dont want to waste my time talking about other people in a negative way.
i want to talk about lacrosse practice, concerts, crushes, style and better yet, the positives of people.
i want to binge watch "Grey's Anatomy" or "The Fosters"
i want to go to church
i want to blog

but...

i dont want to be that person.
i want to be who we all want to be, ourselves.

i don't want to talk bad about other people.
i know we've all been there, but i'm going to try to cut it out of my life.

and that's who I am.

and that's who we are.

it's our life.

so why don't we live it as us.

Also,
a few motivational songs to go along with this post
Scars- Bailey Bryan
Happy People-Little Big Town
Follow Your Arrow- Kacey Musgraves

Face Your Fashion Fears with Dia&Co

hey y'all! so today ive partnered with Dia & Co for a post called Face your Fashion fears! Dia and Co is a style box sent to you, specifically for Plus Size. I am not plus size, though they asked me if I'd like to do this post!
Today is the day they call "Try Day Friday", so i thought I'd show you 3 looks that are a little out of my comfort zone, but I love to wear for me!

1. I loved this tank top, and the shorts that are a little bit like a skirt looked so cute together! I'm not usually wearing skirts, so these were not like what I usually wear! still, so so cute and the pair is adorable!

2. This Lilly Pulitzer top was so adorable, but with the fringe it was a little out of my comfort zone. Yet, the outfit was so cute, and with the jean shorts looked adorable together! 

3. For me, florals are not my go-to. So that's what I'm focusing on today! This shirt was so cute and fun, so I knew I had to try it! It was so fun to wear and I loved facing that fashion fear!


In the end, #1 ended up being my favorite and my "Try Day Friday" Thank you to Ashby from Dia & Co for inspiring this post!

GRWM // lacrosse

hey y'all! so today I'm trying something new! a get ready with me post (GRWM) since the lacrosse season has officially begun! So here's what I wear to practice, and how I get ready! 



So first, since it's semi-cold on the field, I have to layer up! First I just wear a preppy tshirt and some black sport leggings.



Then I put on my fav nike pop over! It is SO cute and keeps me warm out on the field!

Over that, I usually wear thick socks and my cleats; also bought from the nike outlet (where i got the pop over) and they are actually from the mens section! But they are SO cute!



To top it off, I stick my hair in either a high ponytail or two braids with a pink lululemon headband!

5 tips on starting a blog!

Hey y'all! Today I'm here to give you some tips on starting a blog, and I'm going to be honest and tell you that this is my 3rd blog! Yes, I had two blogs before this that completely failed! Why? because I didn't do much research. Sure, I read tons of blogs but I had no idea on how to start one. So here are a few tips!


  1. Love your layout. If you don't love the look of your blog, you won't want to post. I purchased a layout from Designer Blogs for only $15, and the result was this. Inspiration to post, knowing that I had put a few dollars into this blog and that it was looking fabulous!
  2. Make it personal. Start off with an "about me" page. Tell your readers a little bit about yourself, so they can have a more personal connection to your blog. Blog about YOU! Travel diaries, things I'm loving and Get ready with me are SO popular!
  3. Connect. I can't stress this enough. Make a contact page! That way people can reach out to you about post ideas and maybe even ask you to rep or sponsor their company for product! You can also collab, which brings me into my next tip. 
  4. Collab. If you love a certain blogger that is around your age and want to grow your blog, reach out to them! tell them you'd like to collab and you can form a great online friendship! Collabs are so fun, and you can meet new people!
  5. Link your blog. Start an instagram page for your blog, and spread the word! If people see that you have a blog with an interesting post going up, chances are they'll click the link in your bio! It's honestly the way I get most of my viewers! 
I hope y'all enjoyed that post! If you're thinking about starting a blog, Do it! Contact me if you'd like to collab or work together and I will happily respond!
