Today’s Delight of the Day is the Stripe Sun Shift from J.Crew Factory, $68. I’m not usually into dresses with an elastic waist, because they almost always hit too low for my frame. However. this one is perfect. Because of its design, this dress is probably going to be my go-to this summer, especially while I’m in Europe. It’s great on its own for a casual look, but it would also look phenomenal with a blazer and some wedges.
Today’s Delight of the Day is the Factory Tailored Boy Blazer in Linen from J.Crew Factory, $115. I love bright colors. So much so that my friends make fun of me for it. So when I saw this blazer in pink, naturally, I was smitten. I also have a slight obsession with blazers (I’m talking 10+ currently hanging in my closet, which doesn’t include the fall/winter ones). Needless to say, I’m going to need to order this. My birthday’s less than a month away, so it’s okay, right? I love this paired with shorts or even a summery dress for a more structured look. What do you think?
Today’s Delight of the Day is the Gold or Silver Tone Nautical Monogram Bracelet from Swell Caroline, $46. I’ve highlighted the sterling silver version of this bracelet before, but at half the price, this one is much more budget-friendly. I love anything with a nautical vibe, and a preppy gal can never have too many monograms. Ever. Do you like the gold or silver better?
Oh, and don’t forget to enter my Subtly Fabulous stationery giveaway! So many beautiful prints.
Today’s Delight of the Day is the Printed Pleated Shift Dress from J.Crew Factory, $79.50.
I’m seriously lusting after this dress. I just bought three dresses from J.Crew (this in the coral and blue; the other isn’t available online), and I just booked my five-week trip to Europe (more details to come – promise!!), so it’s taking everything in me not to empty my bank account for this one. The only thing holding me back is that I was able to score the polka dot skirt from J.Crew before it sold out, and it’s the same pattern. Do you think it’s worth it?
Rhetorical question. Of course you enablers do =)
One of my absolute favorite blogs is Subtly Fabulous. She’s a fellow 20something who’s from Cape Cod, and her unique take on fashion inspires me on a regular basis. So when Samantha contacted me about her new shop, I had to check it out.
If you’re a stationery junky, you’re going to love everything. From the folded cards to the notepads, there’s a print for everyone. I’m, of course, partial to the Blue Stripes print (it looks like every blouse/dress/button down I own), but I also adore the Hunter Boots notepad, the Pink and Green Damask Flat Cards…I think you get the point.
So after you’re finished lusting over all of her fabulous prints (see what I did there?), get excited, because one of you is going to win your very own set! All you have to do is leave a comment letting me know you did the following, along with your usernames so I can verify things.

Today’s Delight of the Day is the Vero Clutch from J.Crew Factory in Bright Spearmint, $68. I was perusing my local factory store a few weeks ago when I stumbled upon this gem, and I couldn’t be happier. It’s so roomy, and who doesn’t love this color? Especially for spring and summer. The only thing I regret about this purchase is that I didn’t snag it in every color.
Added bonus for J.Crew addicts: take 30% off final sale items with code “GETMORE”!
Today’s Delight of the Day is the Awning Stripe Halter Dress from Vineyard Vines, $178. Y’all know I love stripes, so a pretty striped dress is a no-brainer. Plus, I love how unique the back of this dress is. It definitely separates this dress from the rest of the summer dresses out there right now. Where would you wear it?
Today’s Delight of the Day is spring’s cutest pair of shorts – the Buttercup Shorts from Lilly Pulitzer, $68. While it’s been really nice here in Pennsylvania, I’ve been crazy busy with work. However, I’m sure wearing these around will help me get in the spirit. How cute would they be with a pair of wedges?
One of my favorite websites for scoring awesome deals is Sassy Steals. Know all that amazing stuff you see on Pinterest but can never find? Well, they have it, and they offer it at incredible prices. They feature new and exciting Boutique Deals and Handmade Deals at a Steal of a price, and they also have weekly giveaways every Friday!
Friday kinda seems far away though, doesn’t it? So the lovely ladies of Sassy Steals are offering a giveaway for my readers! One lucky Preppy Delight fan will win a $50 mystery jewelry box, which could contain any of the jewelry in this post. I’m obsessing over the bow bangles – how cute, right?
Instead of doing a Rafflecopter (I’ve been having some issues lately), I’m going to have you submit your entries in a comment. If you could please list all the tasks you do in one comment with your usernames, I’d adore you forever!
2) Follow me on Instragram – @preppydelight
The giveaway will end Sunday at 12:01am. Good luck!
p.s. Sassy Steals is also offering y’all 10% off with code “preppy10”!
Today’s Delight of the Day is my new favorite pair of sandals, Glitter Navajo Sandals from Jack Rogers, $138. Every preppy gal loves Jacks. They’re a necessity for any closet. So when I saw that they now offer a pair covered in glitter, it was basically love at first sight. And with this amazing weather we’ve had lately, what better time to order a pair?
