"Wrapping" ahead for Spring!


Spring is, well, almost here and TOP IT OFF is excited to announce their NEW preppy cotton cable knit wrap that can be worn 8 ways for 1 great price!
These wraps are just adorable to throw over a pair of jeans, casual pant or skirt. Perfect for a day shopping or lunching with the ladies! I like how it is offered in sizes for little girls and tweens as well. They come in such pretty colors and can be monogrammed too!

Wednesday, January 13, 2010 Preppy Style

Well here is a great boutique in Connecticut featuring the most preppiest of styles in pajama and casual lounge wear.

The colors and trellis pattern designs are vibrant and so, so pretty. The pant set is adorable and looks so comfy to wear after a long day when you want to settle with a good book and glass of wine in front of the fireplace.
But, what really caught my eye was the good old fashioned "housecoat"!
Yes, remember the ones our grandmothers wore and perhaps our mom's did as well in the
stylish sixties era? These, however, are not your average housecoats! They are fun, preppy, and perfect to wear over the short gown or perhaps with a pair of yoga or lounge pants. I just love that you can throw it on and look so fab in the early morning hours while seeing husband off to work, making lunches and sending kids to school all while looking so preppy in that kitchen! What a way to start the day!

Friday, January 8, 2010 Madras!

Well isn't January and our New Year resolutions always about cleaning and organizing? After looking at my little guy's bedroom this morning, I deeply sighed. Boys and clean rooms just don't mix. Time to clean out and make room.

So, I just discovered these adorable storage bags in LL Bean's spring introduction. Aren't these great looking storage bins for a mudroom or family room?

These would look perfect in his bedroom next to his bookcase to store the millions of Lego pieces, Lincoln Logs, Matchbox cars etc. Boyish and practical. I'm buyin' them!
