My Chic Week July 10-16 + Preppy Girl Tag

Friday, July 17, 2015

Wow! What a crazy and fun week! I'm looking forward to a nice weekend up in New York but first let's step back and see what I have been up to lately!

Last Friday, I woke up and ran with my dog. It was very hot outside but it was definitely a good idea. I got my hair cut (which was much needed and I absolutely love getting my hair cut) before heading home for some lunch. That afternoon, my family went to the pool of the country club my neighbors belong to with our neighbors, which was a lot of fun! For dinner, I took my siblings to Panera and we hit up Sweet Frog for some dessert.

Saturday, I went out on the lake all afternoon and just relaxed (and got a small sunburn, lol!).

Sunday morning, I went to Church and after lunch, I had one of my best friends over to hang out by the pool. We had a hilarious mini photo-shoot on my sister's swan, which ultimately would up with us falling off the swan into the water.

Monday through Thursday, I volunteered in the morning at an Art Camp at my neighbor's church. I volunteered there last year as well and it is a fun time hanging out with little kids and helping them make some art!

After Art Camp on Monday, I came home for lunch and then ran errands with my mom during the afternoon. Tuesday afternoon, I had some Chick-fil-a for lunch (My brother and sister dressed up like cows so my whole family's food was free!) and spent the afternoon chilling out.

After Art Camp on Wednesday, my mom and I headed down to South Charlotte to go to Southpark Mall for some shopping. I went to Lilly (which shouldn't be a big shocker) to check out the new fall line and see what was on sale. I wound up getting the Iona top, a cardigan (not pictured), and a sweater from the fall line (not pictured)! My mom and I checked out a few different stores (including checking out the new line at Kendra Scott- oh my! so gorgeous, I see a bunch of Kendra going on my Christmas list) before heading back home. I ventured out to Target and then made some cookies for my Art Camp girls!

Thursday was pretty calm as I had my last day of Art Camp and packed up for my trip to New York!

Also, Grace of Miss Graciela tagged me for a Preppy Girl Tag!

What's your definition of preppy?
I think of preppy as classy and timeless full of fun colors but will always be in style!

What's your all time favorite brand? 
For anyone who regularly reads by blog it will be obvious: Lilly Pulitzer! I am huge Lilly fan and love how bright and colorful all of the clothes are!

What is your favorite Lilly print? 
This is a tough one because I love all of them! Probably Southern Charm (which is one of my biggest regrets not buying anything in), Lets Cha Cha, Sky Blue Heaven, and Seeing White Elephants!

Favorite preppy YouTuber? 
I don't really watch a whole lot of YouTube but I love Dorothy (Prep in Your Step) and Meredith's (Southernbelle606) videos!

Jack Rogers or Sperrys?
Jack Rogers!

Jeans or Khakis?
Duck Boots, Riding Boots or Hunters? 
Riding Boots, I wear mine all the time in the fall and winter! I want to buy duck boots though for the wintertime!

Navy or Black? 
Navy! I joke that my closet is 50 shades of navy!

On a scale of 1-10 how much do you love J.Crew? 
100000! J. Crew is another one of my favorite places to shop!

Favorite Ralph Lauren clothing item? 
My riding boots are Ralph Lauren and I love them! The next RL piece I hope to own is a classic, white button-up!

Pearls or bows? 
I can't choose! I definitely wear pearls more often as I don't really wear hair bows all that often (trust me though, I was that little girl with a bow in her hair all the time!) but I love a good bow accent on clothes and accessories!

I tag the bloggers below to play along and answer the questions!

On another note, while y'all are reading this, I am traveling up to my lake house in Upstate New York. I have limited wifi so I plan on being active on social media (follow me on Instagram and Twitter) and I have posts pre-planned for y'all but I will not have any My Chic Week! Don't worry though because I will do a trip recap once I'm back!

What have y'all been up to lately? Are you doing anything fun this weekend? Let me know in the comments!


  1. Thanks for nominating me Katie, I hope you have a fun trip!!
