Beach Please

So it’s not quiet beach weather yet. But I went to visit my friend Jen in Quincy and we went for a walk on the beach and I wasn’t freezing! So I’m going to count that as a win.

I rarely go south of Boston, this was the first time I ever went to the beach in Quincy! I’ll stick to my north shore beaches or the cape this summer but it was cool to see the cityscape over the water.

I love this outfit from J.Crew Factory. They have been doing a ton of great sales lately I got this pineapple sweater for FREE! It occurred to me while we were walking along that I’ve had these Sperry’s since I was a freshmen in high school, if you’re looking for quality boat shoes I would recommend Sperry.

This is my favorite tote, I got it from L.L. Bean two years ago. They unfortunately discontinued the lobster pattern but a large boat and tote is perfect for the beach! Can’t wait for a real beach day, are you more of a beach person or a lake person?

Spring Favorites- vineyard vines

Vineyard Vines has been one of my favorite brands for a while! They do a great job of putting a fresh look on preppy classics. This year there are tons of gingham pieces and I’m super excited about them, one of my favorites is this adorable gingham blouse!

My jeans are also vineyard vines and I am wearing a pair of Jack Rogers. I’ve always liked vineyard vines jeans, they are just stretchy enough that they’re comfortable but not so much that they don’t fit right after a couple weeks. I just wish they would make their jeans in a short length, my 5’2″ legs need a little help!

My earring are from this super cute shop Nantucket Whaler, go by and say hi to Susan next time your on the island! Vineyard Vines is currently running their 25% Friends and Family, so definitely check that out and pick up some new spring pieces. I will be packing up and going to Florida next week with tons of VV in my suitcase. I am so excited to be going to Disney with my family, I have never been before so send me your tips! We always grew up going down the Cape for vacations, so it has taken 23 years but I’m going to Disney!!

Thank you so much to vineyard vines for sending me this outfit for my trip! As always all opinions are my own.

J.Crew Factory Sale

I have always been a fan of J.Crew Factory, I find that ‘preppy’ brands can cost big dollars! J.Crew Factory allows you to get the preppy look without emptying your piggy bank, when I was in high school it was my go to place to shop and is still one of my favorites! I’ve heard people complain that the quality isn’t as good as J.Crew retail, as someone who owns a lot from both branches of J.Crew I can say I have never had an issue with anything I bought at Factory. Is the quality as good as J.Crew? No but it’s still good and it’s half the price, you get what you pay for people!

In all the post-Holiday madness it is had to keep up with all the sales and after spending so much on gifts for others your bank account may be hurting a little. Which is why you can’t afford to miss this sale! Use the code WINTERFUN and get an additional 50% off clearance! Let me say that one more time, go to the clearance section, look at that already marked down price and then take an addition 50% off! There is some great finds in the clearance section right now I linked a few below! I got two new skirts that will be perfect to wear in the office this winter. I think I might go back and get a couple more things tonight. This sale is online only and is going on till January 8th while supply lasts so get on it!
