Delight of the Day 11/13

Lily Grace

I’m super excited to introduce you to Lily Grace. Just reading their bio, I knew you’d love them: “Lily Grace is a close-knit group of family and friends who were inspired to create a brand that embodies everything us girls love about being southern, classy, and modern. Each design was hand-drawn with our interests and personal styles in mind.” Right up your alley.

The lovely ladies over there sent me the softest t-shirt with one my all-time favorite Oscar Wilde quote: “You can never be overdressed or overeducated.” The graphic is extremely well done, and the cotton is nice and thick, i.e., it’s not going to crack and pill after a few washes. Love. While it is starting to get a little cooler (read: freezing) in Pennsylvania, I’ve been finding every excuse possible to strut around town in this shirt. Added bonus? It’s oversized, so it leaves room for all those apple cider doughnuts that I can’t seem to turn down. Oops!

Priced between $30 and $38, these make great Christmas gifts for your little or your BFF. I also suggest throwing in some koozies ($5) so you can definitely own the best gift giver superlative. Good luck choosing your favorite design!

Delight of the Day 11/7

If you follow me on Twitter, you know I spent my evening last night browsing the Nordstrom Fall Clearance Sale. There were a lot of awesome steals on designer goods (I finally ordered a Burberry scarf, and my favorite Christmas present from last year is on major sale!), and there were a lot of inexpensive stocking stuffers for my friends and fam. I thought I’d share some of my favorite steals with you!

p.s. Don’t forget about the Talbots Friends & Family sale! Time to stock up on cashmere sweaters.

Delight of the Day 10/19

talbots

I mentioned a few ago that I have a new obsession with Talbots. They are quickly replacing the place in my heart that was previously reserved for J.Crew’s basics. So when I saw that they were having a sale for 30-40% off some of my favorites, I knew I had to share. I adore this Collared Breton Strip Sweater ($38.99) and this Plaid Henley ($35.99)! Scroll below to see some of my other fav steals.

Homecoming Attire

Homecoming

For the first time since I graduated (it’s been four years already – yikes!), I’m going to homecoming! I’ve considered going a few times, but bad weather and work have always gotten in the way. This year, I made a resolution to finally make my way back. I love Pittsburgh – especially in autumn. Now, I know you Southern girls are shaking your heads wondering where my sundress and bows are, but we do it a little differently up North. Mostly because it’s freezing. Find my Game Day essentials below:

J.Crew Final Sale

J.Crew is offering 40% off its final sale items with code DAYFIVE, and there are some great steals! $60 for a vest? $84 for a jacket? Yes, please! Browse my favorites from the sale below:

Delight of the Day 9/30

Brooks Brothers Tartan

Today’s Delight of the Day is the perfect dress for this crazy transition weather. It’s still warm enough to wear dresses some days, but you’ve already retired your favorite little white dress, so what are you to do? Buy a pretty tartan dress from Brooks Brothers! Plus, when it starts to get cold, just pair it with a blazer and your favorite riding boots, and you can wear it until it starts snowing!

Labor Day Weekend Sales

Typically, I spend most of Labor Day relaxing by someone’s pool and shopping all the sales from my phone. Unfortunately, I’m a grownup now and have to work this weekend, but I’ll still be scrolling through all the deals!

Delight of the Day 9/3

I had another post scheduled for today, but when I saw the announcement email from Kiel James Patrick, I knew I had to share. As if you don’t already own everything they create – scallop button down, boat shoes, and bracelets – they’ve now stepped up their game yet again and created the cutest Anchor Hats, $48. The adjustable leather strap on the back is what separates this from every other preppy hat on the market. It’s really all in the details, isn’t it? Plus, it comes in a wide array of colors, so you’re sure to find one you love. Anyone else thinking Christmas gifts?

J.Crew New Arrivals for Fall

It’s almost that time of year. Preppy girls everywhere will be in their autumn uniforms: riding boots, crimson sweaters, and blanket scarves  while carrying a grande skinny Pumpkin Spiced Latte. So where does one find all this autumnal fare? J.Crew. I know, I know. Hear me out.

While J.Crew has been slacking a little bit lately, they’ve gone back to the basics for fall, making them my first stop for back-to-school shopping. Technically, I’m getting my Master’s, so that’s still a thing.  Both regular and Factory have some really great promos going on right now to try to boost sales, and I’m loving the color palette. $138 for a cashmere sweater from J.Crew? Yes, please. Take an extra 30% off of that? I’ll even bring the sale associate a PSL.
