DoSayGive Discovers: Preppy Classics with Lauren James!

Preppy Classics by Lauren James!


I recently discovered the cutest preppy brand that is not super pricey. And if you have teen or college girls you are going to want to know about their popular dresses!

Lauren James is a relatively new designer, catering to those who love a classic style that still feels fresh. Her clothes are perfect for everyday and special occasion!

I picked up this scalloped seersucker skirt ($58+ free shipping) at Saint Bernard in Dallas last month and have worn it at least twice a week – either a white tee or a chambray shirt. Every time I do I get asked, “Where did you get that adorable skirt?” I think I’m going to get one in white or pink because it’s just so cute! (Note: mine is a small.)

Dallas teen and college girls love their cute sundresses – so ladylike and appropriate but still stylish and fun! Don’t miss their cute gifts, too. Several of the things below would make great graduation gifts!

You can shop this brand with free shipping over $49 (and free returns!) at, Houston friends, did you know Saint Bernard just opened a beautiful store in the River Oaks District?

Oh and if you still need a Mother’s Day Gift and don’t want to pay for expedited shipping, here are two options:

1. Mark and Graham has fabulous monogrammed gifts with standard shipping (order by 11 pm tonight!). See all their cute options here. Even better, gift wrapping is complimentary!

2. Consider giving a gift card for a St. Anne’s Tote like the one I carry all the time. You can print at home or have emailed at a scheduled time. She can design her own custom tote she will love for years to come – how thoughtful!
