Scout's Honor

My friend, knowing my love for pink and green, gave me the absolute cutest gift for Graduation.  Scout Bags by Bungalow are one of the most versatile totes around.  Since the bags are laminated, they can be brought to the beach or used as an alternative grocery bag.  The bag that I have has a pink and white design with green accents.  I used it all summer long as a gym bag.  

Bungalow has a Scout Bag for nearly all purposes: cosmetic pouches, laptop cases, storage, trash cans, laundry bags, floor mats, and coolers.   I have my eye on the laptop cases.  

It's difficult to order from their website.  You can request a catalogue or search Amazon.  I typed Scout Bags by Bungalow into Google and quite a few specialty boutiques came up.  Definitely worth the search!

Tucker Blair and John McCain

I was looking online for cute headbands the other day and stumbled across the cutest website.  To enter the site, you have to click on a little mallard duck.  Hello? CUTE!

Tucker Blair has a product line featuring Needlepoint designs.  It's not something you see everyday.  The cute designs are fabulously preppy.  I fell in love with a light blue headband with red lobsters.  The men's belts are absolutely cute as well.

Check it out!

Also, last night I had a run-in with John McCain.  I practically died.  After I shook his hand, I literally couldn't stop shaking.  I vowed not to wash my hand... but within five minutes I had whipped out my Purell after touching a handrail.  Oh well, at least I have pictures to prove it!

Rainy Day

Today is the first day of class for the spring semester.  Of course, it's raining out.  The rain makes treks across campus quite difficult, as there is a need to dodge giant puddles and try to manage carrying books and an umbrella.

But, I decided to make light of the weather and write about preppy footwear for the rain.  Rainy days are naturally gloomy, but having cute shoes to protect your toes from the cold rain makes the day a bit sunnier. :)

It seems that just about every girl tucks her jeans or corduroys into rain boots.  I am personally a fan of the classic Hunter Wellington boots and J. Crew wellies.  I have the J. Crew wellies pictured, but I took out the bow and replaced it with a navy ribbon instead.  Rubber rain boots with printed critters are adorable too.  The Hunter boots are definitely classic and preppy.  Nordstrom started carrying them at the store near my home.  For the winter, they sold socks that folded over the top of the boots.  Very cute!

Bean Boots are sometimes misunderstood by people.  (They are also commonly referred to as duck shoes.)  I will admit I was a bit confused about the fashionability of them when my dad first mentioned them to me; there isn't exactly a need for Bean Boots in Florida.  He bought me a pair for my birthday, and I converted to a lover of them almost instantly.  Wearing thick socks is almost a must, but it's not a problem for the chilly winter days.  I tend to wear them at particularly wet crew practices.

Don't fret the rain!  Embrace it and slip your feet into preppy wet weather footwear :)
