Preppy Guest Blogger

 Happy Monday! I'm so back to being sick of myself so today I have a special treat for all you lovely preppies. Meet James of He is one of my favorite preppy men blogs. And you'll adore him too!

Please know I'm training a new assistant. I read each and every one of your comments. If I don't comment back please don't think I'm not reading all of your adorable preppy blogs. I am, I'm just a bit overwhelmed in SC's recent demand. I promise I'll be comment queen again soon as I love to share the preppy love!

Where did you grow up and what is your occupation? (if you don't mind)
 "I was an Army brat. When we weren't in Europe we were in the Deep South. When I finished High School I came north for college. Married a Yankee, became a government bureaucrat and retired last year.So I term myself as a Professional Layabout these days."

When did you first notice or begin liking style and clothes?
"I was always around conservative men growing up and followed their style of dress.I knew some real hard core WASPs and I guess you'd call my style as a teenager "preppy ", but it really wasn't referred to as such back in the day.I have always felt your clothes speak volumes about you. I'm no fashion plate, I just favor traditional and conservative. Except for the bow ties of course!" 

What made you write a blog?
"In my first post I wrote that I hoped no one ever read it, I was just venting into cyberspace. Now I happily realize that the world still has people of style, grace and dignity. People who are hard working, honest individuals trying to remain true to their values. I'm so thrilled that someone did read my silliness!"

Isn't he divine? SC loves reading his blog. I adore him!
