Hi, I'm Frannie! You might know me as The Blonde Prep, but welcome to Fran Acciardo, where I share what I'm loving, what I'm up to, food I'm eating, where I'm traveling, and more. I'm a freshman in college with a passion for avocado toast, France and New York City, and lounging around with my dog ;)

If you want to chat, don't hesitate to email me at or ask me a question on my tumblr!



What camera do you use? I use a Nikon D3100 and rotate between the kit lens (18-55mm) and a 50mm f1.8 lens. My main lens used for this blog and all outfit pictures is the 50mm.

What size are your pearls? My everyday pearl studs that you have probably seen in most of my blog posts are big and that's how I like them! They're 12mm in size. You can find a good quality option here.

  2. Do you use a tripod to take your pictures?

    1. Nope, I usually have my friends take them for me!
