As if the station wagon complete with wood paneling wasn’t great enough, I spy an old wooden racket and vintage skies – two favorite pastimes of preps worldwide.
Navy, camel, and grey are three color staples in any prepster’s closet. Sprinkle in saturated primary accents – reds and yellows and plaid for good measure – and you’ve pretty much bought yourself admission to Groton.
Sweat headband corralling an abundance of moppy curls? How very Richie Tenenbaum of you, Hilfiger stylists.
I can’t decide who I love more: the Candace Bergen look-alike being carried around sedan-chair style or the cutie with the glasses and the toggle coat. Tricky…
So young, yet so cool. Not fair. On another note, what’s with the fingerless gloves? I’ve been seeing these everywhere, and quite frankly, I don’t get it.
So many turtlenecks, fitted blazers, oversized sunglasses, and plaid! Styling at its best. Then there’s the candelabras… can’t forget to mention the candelabras!
Scarves look so great on guys. Make sure the men in your life are accessorizing properly this chilly season, and get them a cute scarf (whether they want one or not).

My dear friend, Caitlin of Sacramento Street, asked me to share 10 Things That Make Me Happy on her blog today. Here’s a sneak peak; a few things look familiar, yes? You can see links, prices, and why I chose these items (and six more things that make me happy) by clicking over to Sacramento Street. At the very least, you might get a few great gift ideas!
In other news, I put up my Christmas tree and added white drapes to my living room over the weekend! Pictures will come in a week or so. Stay tuned!

The Girl: By the age of nine, she preferred cashmere to merino wool, Ladurée macaroons to chocolate chip cookies, and Manet over Monet. Most of her childhood was spent longing for weekend trips into the city with her mother where she was introduced to the fine culture and high society Paris had to offer.

I didn’t – and don’t – want to go into it, because this blog serves to inspire with all things happy and beautiful and good. I want to keep it that. My happy place.
But this weekend, I plan on coping with a bit of retail therapy. A razzle dazzle blazer to brighten my mood, and some words of encouragement to pin on my inspiration board as a daily reminder that this sh*t too, shall pass.
And thank you, Paloma and Erin. Once again you’ve provided more inspiration and motivation than perhaps you realized. Happy Weekend, all!
