As you may all know, fall has been here for a while. Growing up in New England and having been around for 19 years has made me love Fall even more. New Englanders, in my opinion, have the best of each season!! It may be late to start thinking about Fall wear, but it’s never too late to know what you need. So in this post, I will chatting it up and discussing the Must Haves of Fall Fashions. Lets get started!

 Dark washed jeans. Looks great with everything, I must say. I prefer skinny jeans since the top portion of fall clothing is layers. You do not want to look frumpy while wearing your Fall gear, do you? And dark washed jeans are far more flattering than those dreadful light washed jeans with the pre-ripped details. I am just saying!

 Sweaters. Fair Isle, reindeer/animal, cable knit, cashmere, turtlenecks,and a select few of cardigans. The more annoying the pattern, the more you look great! I am talking about the whole Navajo styles! Tennis style ( V- neck) and Irish Fishermen is fab too! You can add a nice sweater with a crispy dark washed jean and your good, oh, and don’t forget the shoes (you know that has to be coming up!)The chunkier the knit is, the warmer you are. No, not those awful Christmas sweaters, we are still talking about fall here! Oh, and I do not see what the fuss is with those Awful Christmas Sweater parties, although they do seem intriguing. I do have a favorite holiday picture of myself and my sister, and we look great in our sweaters, but they are not horrible compared to everyone else’s. I just going to leave it as I am glad our parents did not torture us with ugly clothing. (Had to add a rant about Christmas sweaters…I know you lovers are out there!)

Boots. Tall leather boots-brown/chestnut is my personal fave. Think about equestrian/riding style. Uggs ( don’t hate just make sure you roll down your tall chestnut Uggs down you get away with it!) Flats on muted/nature colors, Sperry( I just had to add that for myself), and rainboots( mine have whales, but in the market/mood for some Hunters).

Jackets. Patagonia( in the market for the hunter green one), Northface ( have one, that is why I am in the market for the hunter green jacket, Herringbone blazer, Burberry trench/quilted anything ( dislike purple, but love the plum color). I like the Burberry short trench I think the long one would look silly on me since I am 5’2” and just be awk on). Lets not foget the puffer vests! And color would do. Make sure it is not colorful or crazy patterned-or not patterned at all. Oh, and faux fur! Make sure its is a solid color, not a crazy cheetah print. You’re not Serena Van der Woodsen.

Colors. Hunter green, maroon, cream,navy, orange ( pumpkin)and brown. There is no need to have bright colors in the Fall. You need to blend in with nature. Who does not want to look like a leaf?

Patterns. Fair Isle, plaid/flannel( mostly for guys), argyle, solid, and animals.

 Accessories. Burberry scarf, knitted scarfs in colors above, and bows/headbands in the colors above.

Nail color. Brown, gold, deep green, deep red, teal, cream maybe and pumpkin. Mute is the word. I should not be talking since as of right now, I am wearing Essie Turquoise and Chaos which is a summer minty/sea foam green color.

 I recommend you think about pumpkin latte’s at Starbucks, learn how to knit, drink apple cider, read by the fire, toast pumpkin seeds after you get your freshly painted nails a bath in pumpkin guts, and prance around in your Fall gear.

Stay preppy and do not fall out of Fall before Winter,


 (And yes, I like to capitalize seasons!) ( I will posting a bunch of photos of what I was talking about!)

I live in Rhode Island, so I know a thing or two about the wonderful world of Del’s Frozen Lemonade. I make this speech every time I go there. It goes something like this: ” I cannot stand when people use straws with their Del’s. It is so un-American. You know when they are not from here when they use a straw. It should be a law that in order to access Del’s in the cup, you must stick your face into it and shake it.” And then, the unthinkable happens: One of my friends will forget my rant and use a straw. No words come  out of my mouth, but ” WHY?!” The speech comes before/after I spy a perp. Then I feel bad for them. Non Rhode Islanders. And to be clear, I love using straws, I use them all the time, so it’s no offense to the clear plastic tube. It is the people using them with Del’s.

 This was not edited. Location: Colt State Park. State:  Rhode Island. Traitor or idiot? Both.

When you have friends over, what do you usually do? Do you have a plan before they arrive, a plan you discussed, or one that is just made. Here are some fun activities that always make the best times with friends! And maybe have inside jokes to make your other friends jeal. Just kidding.

1. Make bow: you can use anything! Ribbon, paper, money, metal, fabric, ect.

2. Tie-dye: there are now kits that do not relay on hawt boiling water and waiting forever to get the dye out of your hands and face.

3. Photo shoot: everyone loves getting pictures of their fun times. And you could put them on Facebook, to once again show how fly you are wearing a boa. Try different looks; silly, edgy, flashy, and vintage.

4. Road trip: take a road trip. The one key to, other than a car and gas, is to have no plan. Or have a destination picked at random and go there. Getting lost is half the fun. So, get out of here and get lost, on purpose!

5. Write a silly story: write a silly story and then print it out to look like a real book!

6. On a side note, make a film: make a film adaption based off your story, or make a parody of you and your friends lives.

So, I know this will not be my real post, but I am justing going to post this later. I do not really feel like keeping this in my drafting box, so here you go! What I will be discussing will be the classy and preppy bikes that I know I am not the only one who yearns for. These bikes will make you switch from your Jeep to chic bikes! Be prepared! 🙂

OK! Here is my post! I do not feel like deleting what is above, so I am not!

Here is the beloved Lilly Pulitzer bike I am so in love with. Unless you have this Jeep you will want to sell your car and become eco-friendly! I would even ditch Gloria, my dear car. But I honestly could not get my self to do that. So I wouldn’t. I wish I could find them in bike shops, but I highly doubt they would sell this. You could order it online. If anyone is wondering, the price really is not all that bad, for being a designer bike. It goes for $450, but the green and pink one is not available, but if you email them, maybe you could try.And as for right now, the blue one is unavailable too. Oh well! Good thing I found more fun bikes for you and your Jack Rogers will love!

kate spade is another preppy icon to take the hint for Lilly that prepsters love bikes and they love colors. Here is kate’s new bike.  This bike is also buying worthy, making it about $1,100…which is more than the Lilly, but still. This bike is designed by the legendary bike company, Adeline Adeline (http://www.adelineadeline.com/katespade.html) These bike is so pretty, as well. To be honest, I could see myself riding around town with wither of these bikes. But this green is so gosh darn preppy, happy, and pretty.

Now, for all you chic and classy preps, and do not want to be bright, which is odd for a prep, but still want to be stylish, try the Chanel bike. In Paris, most of the citizens ride around on bikes, Vespas, motorcycles, or small cars, so I am not all that surprised that Chanel came with the idea for a bike. What some people may not know, is that Chanel has these whole sports category, so I would love to get a Chanel boccee set, that would be amazing. Bt anyway, lets get back to the vehicle of choice: the bike.   If the kate spade bike was #1,100, I am afraid to see how much this haute couture bike is,so I do not ave a price. What is nice about this bike, not just because its my favorite designer and one of my fave outdoor activities, is the bag! Not much else to say about this, but I do want to pose a question. 1. Which bike would you choose and why? 2. Would you buy any of these bike and are they worth the money? 🙂

Spring is here!! I know it has been here for a while, but it was not as clear until this past week, not including yesterday! Here are some Spring photos! More to come, do not you worry! 🙂   I chose these two photos for many reasons: Because they where in the same album, the same day, I like flowers and sun, taken in the Spring, AND they are opposites! The flower is all nice and colorful, and then the cloud with the halo of sunlight trying to break free!

So, I know some of my explanations are dry, obvious, or make no sense at all, but at least I am writing something instead of just posting a photo up! As you can tell, this is a bubble! I love how you can see right through the bubble, and see the nice, GREEN, grass! I also enjoy the fact that the sun is bouncing off the bubble. Might I add, this bubble lasted forever! I have like 5 photos of the same one!

 I took this last summer, I believe the day of my last day of Barrington High School! I took this probably because I like lifesavers, not only the gummy treat! I like the textures, which contrast each other. The red rubber floaty with the rough concrete ledge. I love how the ropes look intertwined with all of  the textures, which in fact they are. I also like how the ropes look like they are in the water, which they are not.
