Delight of the Day 8/31

Today’s Delight of the Day is the American Flag Belt from Smathers & Branson, $165. This belt is kinda perfection. It’s needlepoint, made in America, and ultra patriotic. What more could you want?

Also, I love this description straight from their page: “Each one of Smathers & Branson’s needlepoint products is entirely handstitched and therefore each one is unique. Smathers & Branson uses only the best materials from around the world and thoroughly checks each belt to ensure that it is not only beautiful, but also durable enough to survive the test of time.”

(If you order from Country Club Prep, you’ll earn 165 reward points, earning your way to free stuff!)

If you love this belt, you’ll love the Smathers & Branson giveaway on my blog next week! Check back Monday for details!

Delight of the Day 8/30

Today’s Delight of the Day is the Jewel Neck Argyle Sweater from Brooks Brothers, $148. This sweater is an update on a classic design. We preps love argyle! This sweater will get you through fall and winter. Just picture it with some J.Crew Cafe Capris, Tory Burch riding boots, a blazer – the possibilities are endless!

Delights of the Day 8/28

Today’s Delight of the Day are perfect for rush [or, if you’re already finished it with it (congrats!), your little’s basket]. Some of you may have seen the picture I posted on Twitter of the pair I just received, the Kappa pair. I adore these. They’re super cute and combine two preppy favorites – Lilly and greek life. For those of you who aren’t in a sorority, this eBay store also sells other Lilly prints on the earrings, so don’t feel left out : )  All of the earrings are $12.64 shipped; what a bargain!

 

 

 

Delight of the Day 8/27

Fall is right around the corner, which means chilly weather and rainy days aren’t far behind. Today’s Delight of the Day will help prepare you for those days! While I love the original Hunter boots, these Hunter Cece Boots, $195, are to die for. I love the riding boot shape and think it gives them more of a sophisticated look. If only I could afford this umbrella to go with them!

 

 

 

Cape Crabbers

I’ve written about Cape Crabbers before, when I highlighted them as a Delight of the Day back in May. However,  after I saw their Sailor Striped Razor Back Tank, $24, I felt the need to mention them again. The frat tank look is really in right now, and I have to say that this is one of my favorites. You know I love stripes and anchors, and this tank combines both of my loves in one adorable package! I’ve also included links to a couple of my other favorites – the pullover and t-shirt (which I own!) – because they have offered us a 10% off coupon with code “KG10”!

“Life is a vacation.”

p.s. Don’t forget to enter this week’s giveaway!
