Good morning! Here’s a little preppy inspiration for you today! I love this look for summertime. Tee shirts, shorts, and baseball hats are classic Americana. It’s pretty much the only thing I wear during the hot, muggy summer days we have here on the East Coast.
A few things on my summer prep wish list:
-Jack Rogers sandals
-Vineyard Vine tee
-Lilly Pulitzer shorts
-Southern Proper tee
I went into a local preppy themed store and was talking with the owner about cute preppy themed things she should think about selling. She told me that Kiel James Patrick has actually designed a bracelet for her store and she’s debuting it next weekend! For the record, Kiel and his fiance, Sarah, are apparently really nice, down to Earth people. I can’t wait to see the bracelet they designed! I’ll be posting about it next weekend! Enjoy today!
Happy Mother’s Day to my beautiful mama! She’s the biggest encouragement to me and she’s worked so hard to make me into the girl I am today. I absolutely adore her and consider her one of my best friends. I really lucked out when I was born to her and my dad. Some people didn’t get half as lucky as I did!
For her Mother’s Day gift, I found some cute Sperry’s on sale. I got her hooked on those a few years ago. If I were a millionaire, I would have taken her to Paris but seeing as how I’m not I new shoes would be almost as good.
I’m writing this post predominantly for the gentlemen who may have come across it that’s panicking because he forgot today was Mother’s Day. Guys, click on the image above for details on each of the items I included in my Mother’s Day gift guide. Perfume, flowers, jewelry, candles, and stationary are some of my favorite gifts to give! Good luck gents!
Today is the first official day of my new job! I’ve worked so hard to get to where I’m at today and I can’t wait to see where this journey will take me. I’ll be rocking stilettos and red lip stick just in case any of you were wondering. I have a closet full of work-appropriate clothing that I’ve been dying to wear for the last few months and I’m thrilled that today I can start wearing them again. When it comes to first day outfits, I like to appear professional but feminine. I chose this pink blazer and navy pencil skirt because it embodies both of those things. Women tend to think that in order to be respected in the workplace they need to be just as “hardcore” as the men. I believe that we should embrace our femininity and use it to our advantage. It’s what make us beautiful and powerful!
