Today’s Delight of the Day is new collaboration between Tucker Blair and Kiel James Patrick. These needlepoint bracelets, priced at $72, are the perfect gifts for all of your preppiest friends. I’m, of course, partial to the American flag, but there are six different designs – all equally as awesome.
Today’s Delight of the Day has me squealing. No joke. Jack Rogers‘ new Quinn Loafers are to die for. The scallop detail along the top sets them apart from anything else out there right now, and who doesn’t love being an original? The loafers are available in dark brown, black, and platinum, ensuring you can match them with any outfit!

By now, you know I love Black Watch tartan. (My obsession is legit, though. I’m Scottish.) Recently, whilst procrastinating at work browsing Instagram, I noticed Barrington Gifts released a new Black Watch Collection. And you guessed it, I’m obsessed. They’ve got totes ($145-195) , duffles ($225-275) , accessory cases ($42-85), shoe bags ($85), and a laptop sleeve ($100). WASPs everywhere can rejoice, because now you don’t need to make a trip to Edinburg to get your fix. Or still do that. And bring me, please!
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably already seen this giveaway a couple of times. For those of you who don’t,
what in the world are you thinking? I’m letting you in on the fun!
The winner gets to choose ANY product of their choice. I love this simple winter jacket for ski days and this heathered fleece jacket for running errands. I’m also a huge fan of the pullover Sydney from Summer Wind picked.
All you have to do is follow Preppy Delight and Charles River Apparel on Instagram and like one of the photos. You can earn extra entries by tagging your friends and/or reposting the picture and tagging both of us. Good luck!

I don’t know why, but I have always associated Brooks Brothers with fall. Perhaps it has something to do with the all the wool jackets, cashmere sweaters, and tartan prints. Regardless, they are synonymous with fall in my head. So it’s perfect that the Friends and Family sale is ongoing through today. Take 25% off with code FF25. Below, you can see some of my favorites. I couldn’t help myself with the Black Watch Dress. (And the latest Red Fleece collection is to die for!)
If you wear glasses, today’s post is perfect for you. I’ve worn glasses since high school (yep, such a nerd), and now that I’m out in the big world on my own, I’ve realized how expensive glasses and prescription sunglasses are. When Firmoo approached me about a review, I knew I had to share them with you. Finally, affordable eyewear! Most of their frames start at just $36, and even their special lenses aren’t much more. If you love to change up your accessories, these are perfect, because you can buy several pairs for the same price you’d pay at your optometrist.
As long as I’ve worn glasses, I’ve never owned a pair of prescription lenses. On super sunny days when contact lenses just wouldn’t work, I’d have to be essentially blind to wear my shades. Not the brightest idea ever. I thought I’d give Firmoo’s Rx sunglasses a try. I chose their wayfarer sunglasses (OMJ8005), and couldn’t be happier. They’re lightweight and come with the cutest carrying case. The whole ordering process was super simple, too – just call your eye doctor for your prescription, fill out the ordering form, and you’re good to go! Which pair would you order?
One of my favorite things about being a blogger is being introduced to new brands and getting the opportunity to share them with my lovely readers. Case in point: Devon Maryn. Devon (a former Kappa!) founded Devon Maryn in August 2014 to bring feminine, preppy activewear to the scene, and I couldn’t be more excited for you to check out her goods. I’m loving the Butter Me Up Lobster yoga pants; how adorable is that print? Now that it’s getting a bit chilly outside in the morning, these will be perfect for your AM run, and, thanks to these capris, you’ll look beyond cute running past the long line at Starbs.
I don’t know what it is, but I’m obsessed with the idea of leather duffle bags. There’s just something so classic about their look, and I love the idea of grabbing one, filling it with the essentials, and hopping on the first train out of town. Pair that with beautiful craftsmanship made in America, and you’ve found pure perfection. Frank Clegg’s Compass Duffle is the quintessential travel bag and will be topping all of my Christmas lists this year. That, and a trip to Paris.
