Coastal Prep: Hampton Ivy

August 11, 2016



Who here loves gingham? Who loves a coastal chic lifestyle? Who loves Harry Potter?

An odd pairing--I know, but with another Harry Potter book out-Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Parts 1&2--it got me thinking about my time reading the HP books & how they dressed--they were kind-of preppy weren't they with their prep-school uniforms & always looking English country side chic--expect when they were dueling for their lives...

So, in this post, I want to combine my two favs-Coastal Chic & Harry Potter.

Melanie, the visionary behind the classic and preppy fashion accessory company, Hampton Ivy gifted me with the Blue Gingham Gold Cuff you see in this post.




If you love coastal, preppy, equestrian, & all-American things/style her accessories are for you.

"Our designs reflect a love for tradition and channel the simple yet timeless aesthetics of vintage styles. Each of our designs represent traditional nautical  and equestrian fashion, as well as celebrate the lifestyle we love. We hope with every Hampton Ivy item you wear you can express the style you love as well"-Hampton Ivy.

TTYS!

  8. Love this preppy gingham look! And I remember reading HP when i was in middle school. I kinda forgot the story after the 4th book, so I'm rereading books 5-7 before reading the new one. So many things to read! heheh
