New blog address!

I’ve officially made the switch to http://www.preppydelight.com. Join me over there to keep up with my preppy adventures!


Today’s Delight of the Day is the Golf Umbrella from Vineyard Vines, $65. I don’t know about you, but it seems I have to buy a new umbrella every year. The wind blows it inside out, it gets a tear, or I forget it at a bar while intoxicated restaurant. Flash to this umbrella: it’s large, so I won’t lose it, and it’s heavy duty, so I don’t think it will be so quick to break on me. Plus, who doesn’t want a cute Vineyard Vines umbrella?




Today’s Delight of the Day is the Linen Blazer from Ralph Lauren, on sale for only $69.99! The end of summer sales have been great this year, and this blazer is no exception. While there is a school of thought that says you shouldn’t wear linen after Labor Day, I think it’s totally okay when it’s still this hot. Pair it with some navy shorts and cute wedges for the perfect end of summer look!

Ralph Lauren is offering 40-70% off their sale items, so definitely check it out if you haven’t already!

Also, don’t forget to enter my Smathers & Branson giveaway! It ends tonight at midnight!

Today’s Delight of the Day is a pair of plaid loafers from Tommy Hilfiger, $69. As you already know, I’m fairly obsessed with loafers (if I could wear mine everywhere, I would!). If you recall from last fall/winter, I’m also a big fan of tartan. These Tommy Hilfiger loafers combine both, and I’m just smitten. I’m picturing these with a cute cream blouse, a wool mini skirt or wool shorts, and some cute tights.

p.s. Don’t forget to enter my Smathers & Branson Key Fob Giveaway! It ends Friday at 12:01 am.

Today’s Delight of the Day is the American Flag Belt from Smathers & Branson, $165. This belt is kinda perfection. It’s needlepoint, made in America, and ultra patriotic. What more could you want?

Also, I love this description straight from their page: “Each one of Smathers & Branson’s needlepoint products is entirely handstitched and therefore each one is unique. Smathers & Branson uses only the best materials from around the world and thoroughly checks each belt to ensure that it is not only beautiful, but also durable enough to survive the test of time.”

(If you order from Country Club Prep, you’ll earn 165 reward points, earning your way to free stuff!)

If you love this belt, you’ll love the Smathers & Branson giveaway on my blog next week! Check back Monday for details!

Today’s Delight of the Day is the Jewel Neck Argyle Sweater from Brooks Brothers, $148. This sweater is an update on a classic design. We preps love argyle! This sweater will get you through fall and winter. Just picture it with some J.Crew Cafe Capris, Tory Burch riding boots, a blazer – the possibilities are endless!
