Down to the Sea & Other Friday Fun

Happy, Happy, Happy Friday! Is it simply glorious where you are? Hopefully that is the case, spring has sprung in a major way here at the Prepatorium. The sun and gentle breezes are beckoning, and our resistance to stepping outside is waning. Rapidly.

Therefore today’s post is short, touching briefly on a few morsels that may hold appeal.  We begin with word of a fun post over at Refinery 29, “All Aboard for a Fresh Take on Nautical“.

The story features all sorts of pieces with nautical influences, with some items coming from brands many readers enjoy, like Sperry and J. Crew, to others not commonly showcased in this space, such as Wren and Pixie Market.

We very much enjoyed their take on the look.

Next is a post we mentioned yesterday on our Facebook page, from online style magazine Fashionista.  The story’s title provides the focus: “Who Does Preppy Classics Best? Lands’ End Canvas vs. L.L. Bean Signature?’

Author Lauren Sherman compares and contrasts several elements from each brand, a timely topic with LL Bean Signature officially launching over this week.

While not terribly in-depth, the story does make an interesting read.

We close with a few images in our “Friday Fun” category. The first is of a delightful customer heading out the door with her Lilly Market Bags.

Thank you Brittnee!

Our thanks to Brittnee for sharing with all of us!

The second image is today’s Pretty in Pink, without a doubt, an item we originally learned about via our friend Bumby at the Preppy Chronicles.

This would be a new Fiat 500C, not the first Fiat in pink, but it is the first convertible in our favorite shade.

On that fun vision, we leave you with a reminder about our amazing Spring Fling Thing, and a hope that your weekend is utterly divine. You deserve it.
