What’s in your closet: Lizzy Tucker shares her classic and preppy style

Take a peek inside the closet of Lizzy Tucker.

If you’re anything like me, you see an outfit — a perfectly accessorized outfit, complete with the perfect jacket, a wonderful statement piece, a pop of color and amazing shoes– and you wonder where in the world did that exceptionally dressed person get those amazing articles of clothing. And instead of asking like a normal person, you, and I, hit the stores in search of that beautiful item and return home without any luck. And if you’re anything like me you sit in front of your closet in the morning with a pile of no-gos agonizing over what the heck you should wear to school, wishing you had that really cool sweater that girl in your fourth hour class was wearing.

Let’s be real, life would literally be a million times easier if we all  just knew where our classmates get their awesome clothes. So, I did what any fashion lover and blogging enthusiast would do — I started a blog about Homestead students and their amazing closets.


Lizzy Tucker, my favorite shopping partner and the first girl to showcase her closet, describes her style as “classic with a few modern twists.”  She frequents J.Crew, Lilly Pulitzer, Ralph Lauren, LuluLemon, Gap and Patagonia and her style icons consist of Jackie O, Diane Von Furstenberg, Kate Middleton, and Olivia Palermo.Savvy shopper, Lizzy stated “I never pay full price. I’m a sucker for a good deal.” She also is a world class pinner and you all should follow her on Pinterest. Seriously, follow her right now you will not regret it.

Lizzy also is referred to as “the girl with eTa on everything,” (or maybe that’s just her twitter bio?) and no grandma, that does not stand for “estimated time of arrival.” Lizzy pretty much monograms everything, but she assured me that adding monograms is a “great way to add a personal touch to your wardrobe.” She added, “it’s also great insurance, your friends can’t steal something with a big monogram on it.” Can’t argue with that.

Here’s a couple of her favorite things:
