North Star Dixie combines my Northern upbringing with my Southern roots. I was raised in Minnesota on hot dish, hockey, and snow storms. From there, I spent many summers in the Alabama heat with a true Southern Belle of a Grandmother where I came to love everything Southern from sweet tea to the Crimson Tide. After spending 5 years in Maryland attending college, I quickly adapted a more preppy lifestyle of pastels, boat shoes, and plaid. I consider myself a Midwestern Prep because as much as I love pastels and boat shoes. I grew up a tomboy; you can find me in gym shorts and Nike’s on a run, at the gym, or riding my bike. I like to be comfortable, but cool and classy at the same time.
North Star Dixie is a lifestyle guide for the Midwestern Prep. Whether you are new to the lifestyle or have lived it your entire life, welcome! You can find anything from events, fashion and style to fitness tips, sports and travel destinations worth checking out. I’ve always loved the East Coast but the Midwest is where I hang my heart. Cheers to a preppy lifestyle, the female inner-tomboy, and the mission of dressing the Midwest better one blog post at a time.
