Preppy Back to School Must Haves.

Back to school season was always one of my favorite times of the year- new clothes, cooler weather and a fresh start! My school days are long gone, but I still thought it would be fun to share some of my preppy back to school must haves for any of my college or high school readers! Happy reading!

1.)  A beret- a classic accessory in the preppy wardrobe! Pop one on with a trench coat for sporting events at your school or a study sesh at your local coffee shop. Berets instantly make you look chic and put together, and are a lifesaver on bad hair days!

2.)  A striped tee- wear by itself tucked into jeans, or under a puffer vest with some corduroys; a striped tee will be your best friend because you can style it so many ways!

3.) Navy flats- they pair so effortlessly with everything!

4.) Cozy sweater- I mean, who doesn't love being cozy?! Pop this guy on on days when you don't feel like getting out of bed but you still have to go to class.

5.) Brown loafers- instantly make you feel like you go to Harvard Law School. Pair with a cozy sweater and jeans or with a skirt and tights for that classic prepster look.

6.) Novelty sweater- because you need to have a little fun sometimes! These sweaters look so cute with a collared shirt or striped turtleneck layered underneath. I love this dalmation one and this duck one!

7.)  High rise denim- they suck you in in all the right places and are actually comfortable. Perfect for going to class, hanging with friends and just about everything in between.

8.) A colorful jacket- while I do love a good neutral, I think it's fun to have a pop of color in your wardrobe every now and then! This red quilted riding jacket is classic and stylish but it is also practical for everyday wear.

9.) Leather tote- a sleek option to the traditional backpack. I carried my Madewell tote all through college and it held everything I needed.

10.) Bean boots- a preppy staple!!! These boots will keep your toes toasty while walking to class in the colder months. I wear mine with camp socks for extra coziness!

11.) Sidewalk skirt- my absolute favorite skirt in the world! These skirts have endless styling opportunities. For class, tuck in a striped long sleeve tee, add a puffer vest on top and pair with your Bean Boots and camp socks. For date night, pair with a pretty blouse, tights and block heels.

12.) Shep shirt- just a cozy favorite of mine for you when don't feel like getting dressed. Pair with leggings or knit joggers and cute sneaks for class or running errands!

Mackinac Island.

A few weeks ago my family and I headed up to Mackinac Island, Michigan- a little hidden gem located on Lake Huron. Mackinac (pronounced Mackinaw,) is the dreamiest place to summer. The whole island is just 8.2 miles around; there are no cars- just bicycles and horses, and there are ice cream and fudge shoppes galore. We only had 2 full days there but those days were jam packed with endless fun and we made the most amazing memories that will last a lifetime. If you'd like to know what we did those few days then keep on reading :)

Day One:

We took the 8:30 am Shepler ferry from St. Ignace and arrived on Mackinac Island just before 9 am. As soon as we hopped off the ferry we were greeted with the smell of fudge! We strolled around town for a bit and decided it was time to fuel up on some coffee. We popped into Good Day Cafe and I had the most delicious cinnamon bun iced coffee! From there we did some more exploring (it was lilac season so everything was in bloom!!) and took endless Instagram photos ha! From there we headed to where we would be staying, Mission Point Resort. Luckily we were able to score an early check in so we went to our rooms and freshened up a bit before heading back downtown. For lunch we had burgers and fries at Mighty Mac Hamburgers- SO YUM!! After lunch we rented bikes from our hotel and biked around the whole island. It was a very easy ride and we saw so much beautiful scenery. We then returned our bikes and did the quick hike up to see Arch Rock- a must see in Mackinac. After that we went back to our hotel, freshened up and had dinner at the Round Island Bar & Grill which was located in our hotel. We sat out on the patio and indulged in tuna tar tar and scallops and watched the sun go down over the lake. After dinner we hung out on Mission Points lawn chairs and then we made our way downtown for a little fudge and ice cream treat. Thus concludes day one on Mackinac!

Day Two:

The next morning we woke up to some light rain so we decided to take it easy and have a late breakfast at a local favorite, The Pancake House. Raincoats on and umbrellas in hand, we made the most of our rainy and grey morning on the island by strolling in and out of shops downtown following breakfast. Luckily the rain cleared up in the afternoon so we were able to hangout and relax at our hotels pool and hot tub for a bit. For dinner that night we had something special planned- a 5 course meal at The Grand Hotel! We got all dolled up in our Lilly Pulitzer dresses and the guys had their suits and bow ties on and we took a horse drawn carriage ride across the island to The Grand. Dinner was spectacular and truly a dining experience that I will never forget.

Day Three:

On our last morning on Mackinac we woke up early and had a hearty breakfast at the Chuck Wagon, another local favorite. After that we strolled around town, bought some more fudge to take home and then we headed back up to The Grand Hotel to get one last look at the beautiful resort. Just before getting on the ferry to leave, I had one last ice cream cone and then said goodbye to my favorite island. 

Until next time, Mackinac.

Hi guys! I just wanted to pop in and share some photos from our trip to Martha's Vineyard over Memorial Day weekend! This was my first time on the island and let's just say it did not disappoint! From cedar shingled houses, to quaint ice cream shops, beautiful beaches and a Vineyard Vines around every corner, it's easy to see why so many people visit this island year after year!

We only spent one day on the island so, as a blogger, I had to come prepared with multiple outfit changes to get as much content as possible LOL. Luckily I had my Sea Bag (pictured below with the lighthouse!) with me that held everything I needed! These roomy bags are handmade in the USA out of recycled sail cloth! You can shop the whole collection by clicking here.

We started off our day in Vineyard Haven. We popped in and out of a few shops, sipped on iced coffee from Mocha Mott's and then had a delicious lunch at The Black Dog Tavern. From there, we headed to Edgartown (my favorite town!!) and did some more shopping at Vineyard Vines, visited the lighthouse there, oh, and then we spotted KJP himself!!! After that, we went to Oaks Bluff and strolled around the gingerbread houses, shopped some more, snacked on a Del's Lemonade and then headed home for the day. I cannot wait to revisit this beautiful island some day!

Pink Seersucker.

Hello, seersucker season! I absolutely adore anything and everything seersucker so it's no surprise that I instantly fell in love with this pink seersucker number from Duffield Lane!

Preppy Easter Dresses.

Easter is one of my favorite holidays! From the pretty pastel colors, to Easter brunch and lots of candy and flowers, it's easy to see why I love this day so much! I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite spring dresses that I've come across while shopping in case you needed a bit of inspo for what to wear on Easter Day! I am leaning towards wearing something seersucker myself, but honestly it's so hard to decide when there are so many cute options out there right now!

Tennis Attire.

I absolutely adore vintage fashion! I was scrolling through Pinterest a few weeks ago and came across some old black and white photos of girls playing tennis in the cutest outfits and I was completely inspired to create my own vintage-esque tennis outfit. It just so happened that that same week a company called Course & Club reached out to me and asked if they could send me one of their darling skorts... talk about perfect timing, right?! 

Course & Club skorts are not only adorable, they are seriously the comfiest thing ever! I love the flattering high waisted silhouette and the classic pleated and striped look. These skorts pair perfectly with so many tops from sweaters to polos and just about everything in between. For my vintage tennis inspired look I paired my skort with this short sleeve sweater that I was generously gifted from a local consignment boutique in Hershey called, JhettSet Closet. (If you're a local PA gal you have to check this place out- they have so many designer goodies for a steal!) To finish off my look I tied a navy cardigan around my shoulders, slipped on some ruffled socks and my sneakers and I fastened a string of pearls around my neck!
