Gift Guide: Preppy Presents

gift guide: preppy



This gift guide is for the preppy girl--the girl who owns countless button down Oxford shirts, argyle sweaters, cuffed chinos, navy blue blazers, and anything plaid. When shopping for a prepster look for clean and classic pieces. Try things in bright colors like pink, yellow, red and green. Famous brands like J. Crew, Ralph Lauren, Club Monaco, Lacoste, and Burberry are great options when shopping for this classic gal. Branch out and buy her a hip striped Ipod Nano case in pink or plaid print dinnerware.

{Clockwise from left: D.Bryant Archie Shuka Pillow, Unabashedly Prep Style Shots, Tucker Printed Stretch-Silk Shirt Dress, Anthropologie "On a Whim" Dinnerware, Chance Boatneck Striped Shirt, Kate Space Nano Case, Modcloth Prep Rally Heel, TopShop Kamille Lines Brogues, Gucci Vintage Medium Web Canvas Handbag}

Love it all. I have always loved those Kate Space iPod cases. There is an iPhone one as well, but not for the new iPhone 4.

Finally back in chicago and it's FREEZING so the only thing anyone will see on me is a coat. 25 but feels like 7. yes...7.
