I am feeling preppy lately. And if you’ve known me beyond this blog you know that I have preppiness in my blood. As a product of an all girls boarding school with notable alums named Jackie, Lilly and Polly and someone who spent summers on the New England shore I have a pretty refined preppy palette. Over the years it’s faded and been covered up by other aesthetics but it’s still style most ingrained in me. And lately I feel it coming back, but in a more modern way. Long gone are the days of Lilly dresses (and forcing my now husband to wear a matching Lilly tie-UGH) and men’s J.Crew cable sweaters and hair bows- but here are some images that are really inspiring me for this summer- both in my home and closet:
Some fun modern preppy details for home and self:

These prints (from Etsy seller RococcoCo.) done on old dictionary pages would make an incredible series on a wall.
