Hello-Hello, happy middle of the week.

It’s the time of year where one holds fast to the knowledge that even if we see more snow, spring isn’t *that* far away. Naturally yours truly begins to think about spring fashions at this point,we thought it would be fun to take a peek at some of the offerings this season.

Brooks Brothers continues to offer its updated take on classic pieces.

A number of styles were very attractive.

Although the shorter, more cropped fit on sweaters has yet to resonate here at the Prepatorium, other items hold promise.

The retailer’s Black Fleece collection features a number of pieces we liked.

There seems to be a lot of green in fashion palettes this spring.

The offerings in the Boy’s department look solid.

These argyle sweaters will certainly work for the growing number of women who buy Boy’s XL sweaters.

Accessories include new bags as well, some evocative of a man’s repp tie.

There are also new totes, including madras and Liberty of London prints, the Liberty bags are reversible.

The Liberty prints can also be found on women’s espadrilles.

Over at Milly the patterns are equally fresh and vibrant, especially for the spring Girl’s collection.


The turquoise, navy and salmon is an appealing color combination.


The spring Sperry Top-siders that Michelle Smith designed are in stock, the navy Links print is probably my favorite.


These are available for both big and little misses.

It’s nice we have bright and bouncy images like these, here is the forecast for tomorrow night:


(You will hear no complaints from these quarters, it has been an exceptionally mild winter.)

  1. Brooks Brothers … the colors are very bright but the shapes equally friendly.

    I love Black Fleece, classic and yet slightly edgy at the hands of Thom Browne.

  2. What is with those short sweaters? Those look terrible! Talk about making the torso look oddly disproportionate.

    I love those first few looks though. I definitely need to stop by Brooks Brothers soon!

    Good luck battling the snow. We also have not had much snow at all recently, which is very odd for central Ohio. Even my hometown of Rochester, New York has had practically none—and that’s the most peculiar thing. Let’s just hope we don’t get a big snowstorm in April!

  3. Love love love every skinny bit in those photos! I just remembered that I have a very similar pair of bright yellow cropped pants. I can’t wait until it’s warm enough to wear them!!

  4. Wow they are looking fabulous!I really like the direction they are taking…its fresh, very American, preppy and classic. Great looks!
    Hope you enjoy your day!

  5. Why is it the girls’ pieces are always so much cuter than the womens’ pieces?

  6. LOVE the 1st BB image- very elegant and refined- no doubt our gal CDoC is behind the trend towards (gasp) taste!

    Might have to check out the little girls madras jacket for mahhseff.

    I adore some of all the collections! Aren’t we glad that we have been purchasing “trad”, preppy, classic pieces all these years! We hit the mark at times without even having to buy a thing :-). Hope all is well Miss Princess! XOXO
