Lilly on Martha

There are a few de rigueurs for a true prep; good hair (no precision cuts allowed), knowing the secret to tying that uncontrived sweater knot around your neck, pearls with everything but a bathing suit, and lots, and lots of Lilly.

Last week Martha Stewart devoted an entire show to Lilly Pulitzer in recognition of their 50th Jubilee celebration and it's a total must see for any preppy.


One of the best things I took away from the show, minus an updated wishlist, was the discovery of a fabulous blog. Hopsy at Monograms and Manicures is a true keeper of the flame. I'm talking about the kind of prep we all were in the 80's before we became watered down by Hollywood and Us Magazine! So, in the spirit of getting back to the root of all things prep, Lilly's Jubilee and Hopsy, here are the purchases on my agenda for tomorrow.

The Lovell Shift Printed Jacquard

And, the Tenley Shift Multi Jacquard

Kindness of Lilly Pulitzer for not suing me over borrowing their pretty illustrations. That would be most unprep!

  1. I just had to stop by and say hello after seeing your blog title- summer is most definitely a verb!
