Marc by Marc Jacobs Saddlery Sophie
Greetings, Blonde Ambitioners...how y'all doin?

In the past 24 hours, I have been, (as we say in the south), sicker than a dog. I'll spare you the gory details, but let's just say it wasn't pretty : ) Anywho, yacking aside, I'm alive and well and just happy to be here.

On a positive note, the cat seems to have gone MIA...at least for now. Not sure if this is because animal control or the apartment complex actually, physically removed it due to my non-stop complaining or if some cat fairy magically wisked it away from Building 4, but for now, kitty-poo has disappeared and my sanity has made a comeback.

Well enough about stomach bugs and crazed cats...let's talk about fashion! (Does it sometimes, maybe just a smidge, crack y'all up how all over the place posts can be? Obviously I find it amusing.)

I'm a lover of all things preppy. Shocker, right?

Per usual, Marc Jacobs has heard our cries for preppy goodness and given us oodles of gorgeous options to choose from this fall, especially in the handbag area. Behold, these two beauties:

Lord knows, you can't do preppy without a good plaid top and striped cardigan, right? I'll take that one and that one:

Mystic Plaid Shirt in Navy Multi by CC California; Striped Cardigan by MM Couture

...and this good-enough-for-boarding-school blazer...

Sanctuary Military Schoolboy Blazer

Let's get preppy with it.

Be blessed, lovelies-
