Step In Toe with Blogger, Tori & Her Blog, Prep For A Day

July 31, 2015


Instagram +Tori A. 

She is a pageant competitor, humanitarian, & an aspiring veterinarian. Oh, did I mention that she is a proficient &  popular prepster blogger with over 10k Instagram followers? It's true. Who is she...?

Meet Tori, the animal lover, quote appreciator & 1950s era adorer preppy blogger behind her blog, Prep for a Day.

If you've ever read Tor'is blog {if not, it's time you should}you'll notice faster than you can mummer, Hepburn that her preppy blog isn't like most. No, her site is not littered with merchandise to give-away, nor you'll find any selfies in front of boardwalks, but rather insightful content & has a old soul perception. It's utterly refreshing...for the retail blogging world. 

Tori admits that she never ever saw one episode {not at least one?} of the preppy scandalous show, Gossip Girl--which really is a testament to how unique she is. Truthfully, Tori makes & writes her own topics that are far juicer than any headband Queen B ever adorned. 

Don't miss understand, Tori still has a deep appreciation for preppy, sophisticated brands such as Lilly Pulitzer & Kate Spade. She often features lux retailers on her website as well as offers her own views on how to make each designer label your own...in the same kind-of graceful way a 1950s movie star would do on the silver screen & ironically similar to what Queen B, Blair Waldorf would do.  

Are you intrigued by Tori? Keep reading to find out more! xo xo. 



The Yellow Spectacles: What made you want to blog?
Tori: I'd been following along with other blogs for quite some time, and I really liked the idea of being able to write about the things that inspired me.  I also liked the idea of being able to interact with others through my writing;  however, I didn't think anyone would want to read about my life or my opinions.  One day I just decided to take the plunge:  I sat down, opened up a Blogger account, and here I am!

TYS: Preppy style..how'd did that taste develop?
T: I didn't really have a certain style until eighth grade.  That was when I started browsing Pinterest, and I started seeing all of these outfits that were right up my alley.  They were all considered "preppy" outfits, so that's probably what encouraged me to become preppy.

TYS: Some blogs/bloggers you really admire....?
T: My favorite blogs are College Prep; Prep AvenueA Seersucker State of MindSincerely, SydLucky DayHistory In High Heels; and Polished and Pumped, just to name a few off of the top of my head.

TYS: I am going to pretend that The Yellow Spectacles is there too!


TYS: Where do you draw inspiration from?
T: My favorite blogs are College PrepPrep AvenueA Seersucker State of MindSincerely, SydLucky DayHistory In High Heels; and Polished and Pumped, just to name a few off of the top of my head.

TYS: I saw you love the 50s era...can you explain why?
T: The fifties era, in my opinion, was the Golden Age.  The dresses were fabulous, gentlemen weren't a rarity, the movies were hands-down amazing, and society, as a whole, just seemed a bit more polite and elegant.

TYS: What would you like to see your blog to evolve to-lead to?
T: I'd love to be able to partner my blog with a bigger company and/or blogger sometime in the future.  Really, I just want Prep For A Day to be a source of advice and inspiration for others

TYS: What are your career aspirations?
T: I  want to be a veterinarian more than anything else in the entire world.  I'm not quite sure what I'll be specializing in yet (equine, exotic, etc.), but I do know that I'd really like to be able to work at one of the animal hospitals across the country.  Besides that, I'd also love to become Miss Alabama one day--and believe me, that's a job all in itself.  And if I ever have any time left over, I'd like to be the director of a nonprofit that I'm currently working on.

TYS:  Your most favorite post ever written/or read...why?
T:  I absolutely love Prep Avenue's post about being "average."  Shannon shares how, even after endless studying and practicing, she received a C in one of her classes.  At first this devastated her (as it would have devastated me), but then she realized that, in the long run, the grade wouldn't really matter.  I really admire her for sharing her experience, and I also find it very easy to relate to everything she's saying (I can be overly obsessed with my grades).

TYS: Three words to describe your blog?
T:Classic, eloquent, and stylish are three words that I'd like to think my blog emulates.

TYS: One article you really want to write..why?
T: This is a bit hard for me, considering I spontaneously get ideas for new writing material daily.  I'd really like to do a post all about being a veterinarian--both the pros and the cons--because that's something that's a huge influence on my life, and I'd enjoy sharing that with others. 

See? It pays to go against the gain and forge your own unique path...but Tori-it's okay to see at least one G.G. episode..as they say, When in Rome!.

  1. Thank you for the wonderful post, Katelyn! And, I suppose you're right--I should probably cave and watch some Gossip Girl.
