Dreaming of Spring

Hello-Hello, and happy new week to you.

In an effort to cease my relentless whining occasional mention (cough-cough) of the ever-so-nasty winter weather, I thought a look at some spring styles might perk up the day. We begin with J. Crew.

J. Crew

Below, spring colors for the label’s mainstay Jackie Cardigan ($65).

We don’t want to forget your young MOTH (Man of the House), Bean has plenty of warm weather looks for them.

What I saw in the LL Bean Women’s Spring Looks thus far didn’t really wow me.

Despite the fact Bean offers more subdued styles, they always have things with a little more pizzazz come summer. No doubt they will have fresher looks in a few weeks. In the meantime, let’s go graze at Lands’ End, shall we?

We leave you with a tidbit for anyone in central Vermont: Saturday the North County Animal League is hosting “Menagerie Goes Preppy,” the shelter’s annual fundraiser.

From the League’s website:

Don your khakis, pearls and plaid at a perfectly preppy evening in support of the animals….costumes or creative dress is always encouraged but never required.

G’bye until next time!

    I just ordered and received the “Vacationland” shirt from LLBean for my daughter. It’s very cute and fits well. My only complaint…it is very thin material. My daughter will be wearing a camisole under it.

  2. Eeek, that is not what you want to hear about a shirt from LL Bean. Thank you for letting us know! :)
