about - PrepEssentials


Thanks for visiting my page! My name is Olivia, and this blog is where I document my life, fashion, travel, and everything in between.


I started PrepEssentials as an outlet for my creative energy and personal stress as a sophomore at Miami University in Oxford, OH back in 2013. Born and raised in Louisville, KY, I am a lifelong lover of style, class, traditions, and all things preppy & timeless.


I graduated from Miami University in 2015 and moved to Chicago, where I am now navigating and blogging about the life and style of your average 20-something girl in the big Midwest city.


Here I talk about lessons learned in college and in my career, fashion finds and styles I’m loving, experiences and travels I encounter, and all of the things that I observe are being faced by all of us women who are navigating our college years, 20’s and beyond!


You can join me in my adventures on the blog (follow along on Bloglovin’), and on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter!


Have more questions about my college experience, how I went from being a pre-law major to a marketing and sales intern and finally a full-time employee in Chicago, or have a great post idea? Maybe you just want to say hi! Either way, I would love to hear from you! Feel free to email me at
