It’s Friyay! This week was just long and tiring for me. I had so much to do at work and not nearly enough time to do it all. I keep saying every week that the weekend will be strictly for relaxing and every weekend I don’t relax at all. In the past, my family and I have taken vacations during September and October because the weather is so pleasant. Last year, we went to New England for a week-long getaway. Can I just say how excited I was to wear preppy fall clothes in the region where “preppy” was born? Read on for a look at my outfit!
If you’re a J. Crew lover like me, you’ll know that this is their super popular lobster sweater. I always get compliments on it! Unfortunately, they don’t sell it anymore but every once in awhile you can find one on eBay. When I was shooting these photos with my sister, the wind kept whipping my hair around and making it hard to get a good photo. But the sun was perfect and the water was so blue!
I’m also wearing my favorite Abercrombie lace shorts that you’ll probably see on my blog a million times until I’ve worn them out. One of my favorite things from my vacation in New England was seeing how well my personal style fit in with my surroundings. Even my cat eye sunglasses were reminiscent of Jackie Kennedy ‘summering’ on the Cape! During the summer, I focus my wardrobe on nautical stripes and classic shoes like Jack Rogers and Sperry. During the awkward transition months like September and the early part of October, I combine those styles with denim, fuzzy scarves, and riding boots. It was so much fun literally feeling like I was blending in with the scenery. I just can’t seem to do that here in Dallas!
Spending a few days in the birthplace of preppy was so nice! Spending time with my family was even better. Now that I live so far away from them (they’re all back on the east coast), I realize how important these trips have been in my life. In the long run, what I wore doesn’t matter much either. But I certainly adore this outfit! Below are a few links to similar items!
