‘Merica

Preps love America. It’s in our blood. Some of us have ancestors who rode over on the Mayflower, and, even if yours didn’t come over until the 1900’s, I know you still bleed red, white, and blue. Today’s post focuses on some of my favorite patriotic preppy items – just in time for July 4th. I’d love to see pictures of you in your most patriotic outfits!

Delight of the Day 6/27

Today’s Delight of the Day is the Petite Anchor Print Dress from Asos, $37.28. I am beyond jealous of all you 5’3 and under ladies who can rock this! The anchor pattern is so super cute, and the cut of the dress ensures that it won’t too childish. If you’re not a petite and end up trying it anyway, let me know how it fits!

Delight of the Day 6/26

Today’s Delight of the Day is the Tulip Dress from Zara, $99.90. I saw this dress on Chocolate & Raspberries yesterday and fell in love! I adore the classic design of this dress. Doesn’t it kind of remind you of this amazing dress Jackie wore while in India? Obviously it’s a bit different, but I can definitely see Jackie wearing this. Perfection.

Delight of the Day 6/25

Today’s Delight of the Day is the Maritime Striped Cotton-jersey Dress by J.Crew, $98. I’m slightly upset that I just purchased a similar dress from Ralph Lauren, as I adore the anchor detail in the front! This dress is super cute, and the high hemline balances out the looser look. You can always have it taken in on the sides though or pair with a skinny belt so it doesn’t look baggy. Bon voyage! 

Delight of the Day 6/19

Today’s Delight of the Day is an amazing pair of Leather Croakies from Sounder Goods, $35. These croakies come in four different colors – Oiled Cognac, Classic Cognac, Tan, and Signal Red. I’d definitely get the Oiled Cognac, but any color would compliment those wayfarers perfectly.
