Bow Ties Are Cool

J.R. Crider said it best with their logo, "It's bow tie or no tie."
There is something professional yet playful about a good bow tie.

(All ties featured are available at Country Club Prep.)

All hail red, white, and blue ties for the 4th! This tie by Social Primer is perfect for showing off your patriotic spirit!
You can't go wrong with seersucker during the summer. All of the High Cotton ties feature gingham and seersucker.

Properly named the Gatsby tie, this Collared Greens tie is a modern twist on houndstooth.

I've always been obsessed with nautical flags, and this Anchored Style tie perfectly shows your nauti side! (Sorry, bad pun.)


"It's Always Sunny Somewhere..."

I wasn't too obsessed with the winter or spring Lilly Pulitzer collection, but I am in love with the summer collection. The colors are perfect, and all the nautical patterns? LOVE.

Caldwell Dress | This is my favorite pattern this summer, and I am a big fan of high-lows! The gold detailing is adorable. 

Chandie Dress | I like how the dress is simple and can be dressed up or down depending on how you need it. I would like one in every pattern please! 

Preen Dress | I know exactly where I would wear this dress. I love a good one-shoulder, and this one feels so elegant! 

Dionne Dress | I actually own this dress. I love the twist on red, white, and blue. Perfect for the 4th!

Kennet Dress | Another anchor pattern and another perfect dress! I love the back's details. 


Shorts Story

Here in Georgia it is hot...humid...and gross, but with this gross weather comes cute clothes! To survive this heat, shorts have to become your best friend. Along with 100+ SPF sunscreen, some croakies and sunglasses. 

As much as I adore J.Crew's shorts, the price is a little (a lot) unreasonable for me to buy shorts in bulk. My favorite places to buy shorts are Old Navy and Target! The shorts there are usually $15-20, and in my experience  they have been super high quality. 

Look how cute these are! The lavender color is so pretty, and the pineapples are precious. I am also a fan of the ones with flamingos on them.

I have these particular shorts in the coral with anchors, but the navy and sailboats is hard to pass up! 

Solid chino shorts should be a staple in everyone's closet. Not even a joke. Target has super bright and affordable ones! I have pink and green ones, but I really need to go grab a couple (maybe all) more.
