Delight of the Day 4/25



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?

Swell Caroline

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.

Delight of the Day 4/23


 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 =)

Subtly Fabulous Giveaway



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.
