Tennis Inspiration Board | Camille Styles

I look forward to playing tennis every spring and (thanks to a mild winter in Austin) I’ve already been on the courts this year. Last week I had my first lesson since high school! It was actually a lot of fun and got me excited about getting back in shape. Of course now I think I need a new racquet and clothes, especially this skirt. While my tennis pro wants me to focus on following through and pointing my left toe forward, I still know that one of the main points of the game is looking good in your outfit. In fact, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that my favorite sport is one that incorporates a heavy dose of individual style. I prefer the traditional all-white look, though I don’t think any place requires it anymore! When I’m on the courts I feel preppy, sporty, and very alive. I can’t wait to get back out there again this week. Now, what to wear…

    Thanks, FripperyVintage. Looks like you’ve got some beautiful antique pearl necklaces in your shop. Those would look great on the courts!

  3. I love this post! I’ve been wanting to take a few tennis lessons for ages, and this is maybe the perfect inspiration to call the tennis school and schedule an appointment! I can only agree with everything you’ve written about this sport: it’s so chic and preppy!

      Thanks, Ivana! My grandmother used to always push me to play tennis, citing it as a “lifetime sport”. I’m so glad I took her advice! Not only have I enjoyed it for many years, I’ve also found that you can have a great time out on the courts even at a beginner level. Go for it!

    You know your Grandmother was a State Camp in high school. Have fun on the courts Camille.
