All's Quiet On The Southern Front

Well, the big move-ins at the respective colleges went off with nary a hitch...

Hilary was the first to get settled in Columbia and all four of us worked fast and fashionably to set up the dorm digs just so...

Next up was Emma who parted ways with us in Charlotte and headed to Greenvulle on her own to handle her move-in with roomie and bestie from high school, Caroline.

I had to shed a tear of pride when she emailed me the pics of the finished product...

Just goes to prove the ole adage, the apple doesn't fall far from the preppy aunt tree...

It wasn't long before the girls reunited for a weekend of tailgating and football at Furman...

And, then a road trip to Charleston for some much needed sun and shopping. Looks like they're doing just fine on their own...

Although...I may take it upon myself to send this pic of Emma sporting vintage CKB at the tailgate to Camilla for her "Caught in CK Bradley" album. Even several states away, an aunt's work is never done...


  1. Nice job! My son is hoping that he'll get back to Furman for a visit sometime this fall.

  2. Now why am I thinking that these girls do not lack for a social life:)? Good thing we are now allowed to be both pretty AND smart...

  3. Great post! Looks like they're doing well! My little sister started at Furman this fall as a freshman! Where does the time go?

  4. What cute dorm rooms! They didn't have as much cute back-to-school dorm stuff when I traveled to Charleston as a freshman. However, I stayed true to my preppy spirit with Ralph Lauren bedding.

  5. Love to send both girls a little treat for their respective
    college nests - with their Aunties permission of course. Shoot me an e-mail....

  6. Okay that settles it. BigGirl is going to Furman!! It's a done deal. ;-)

    I love that little alligator/crocodile thingie on her desk that holds jewelry. I.want.that. Lol.

    Darling, darling, darling. Everything.

  7. Oh and one more thing I want...those cute pink cups with the green palm tree (next to the Lilly tumblers....Love them and love it all!

    Can I be a college girl again?!

  8. So adorable! Love it!! When can I go back to college? A 2nd bachelors would be so much fun!! ;)

  9. So adorable!! Hope your nieces have wonderful fall semesters! What I wouldn't give to be in undergrad again!
