I am wearing more white this summer than the one prior to my wedding.
I am so into loafers right now. Like blazers, equestrian style, and cricket sweaters, they are a decidedly preppy staple, so the traditional ones will never go out of style. I cannot speak to the Gucci furry, embroidered loafers, but count me in for the ones with the classic shape and horse bit detail. Penny [...]
Within the last two weeks, retailers have released seersucker styles. I do not know about you, but this is the only evidence I need that spring is about to turn and after a long winter spent wearing black opaque tights, we can sport the seasonal summer fabric.

Y'all last Saturday in Philadelphia was freezing. Philadelphia phreezing. Filiadelphia freezing? Let's just say it was epically cold. I had an appointment in Center City early in the am and by early I mean, 9:30. The week prior was especially tough. Monday I had a meeting with a potential client on site and thanks to [...]

Did you know that along with HABS (Historic American Building Survey) and HALS (Historic American Landscape Survey), the National Park Service also administers [...]

Perhaps it is for the same reasons I love madras, white denim, and Nantucket reds: rules dictate that one can only wear these traditional style staples from Memorial Day to Labor Day, no matter the climate. Since the seasons restrict the opportunity to break out summer's best, I never feel [...]
