    For any of you interested in the story behind Stephen Bonanno Sandals (now Palm Beach Sandals) versus Jack Rogers, I just posted a blog with all the details & history behind our beloved sandals! Hope this helps!

    @kate spade:  In response to your question about the difference between Bonnano sandals and Jack Rogers, the answer is that the Bonnano company is an old guard Palm Beach sandalmaker while Jack is more widely available on sites like piperlime.  Very, very old school types from the island refer to Bonnanos as “Luigis” because he would custom build the navajo sandals for customers’ feet.  The last time I stopped in to C. Orrico for my Bonnano fix, they were labeled Monica Bonnano for the younger generation now at the helm of the company.  The sandals are lovely and well crafted.  I do own some Jacks (I couldn’t resist the Nantucket Red pair from Murray’s), and I like them as well.  Bonnanos just make me feel (a little) less removed from home.

    Love the fresh twist on the classic Hermes scarf.

    In fact, this young lady does live on PB and she does drive a convertible.  Thus, she wears a scarf to hold her hair back and to keep the sun from burning the top of her head.  When you leave your poolside to hop in the car and meet a friend for
    A quick bite of lunch, you just grab your purse and go…go…go:)  Trust me, this young lady is the queen of PB vintage and could have “prepped” you to the point of nausea had she actually planned a photo shoot.  What you see is a typical PB teen hanging with a friend at the Breakers!

    Maybe it’s because I have basically the same outfit packed for my Florida trip this weekend, but I for one love this (Vintage D&B instead of LV, but love hers also). Looking preppy pool/oceanside can be difficult, most of the time you’re wearing nothing but a bathing suit, but this girl does it beautiful. I love the scarf! They are often underrated and overlooked, but they do such a great job covering hair that may not look as good post-swim as it did pre-swim. Thanks so much for this!

    Wow is that really Kate Spade!?  Figures she would check out this blog.  I heard KJP is also a frequenter.  Amazing

    FEC, pardon my ignorance, but can you please explain the difference (if any) between Stephen Bonannos and Jack Rogers?
    Much appreciated.

    Are you in New York now?  I thought I may have recognized you on the street yesterday.

    What baffles is that in FL, why would one go to a pool unless they were in say, Gainesville? Other than that, and the scarf, she’s appropriate.

    This girl is definitely eye candy. I just hate the giant LV logo bags. But if she is happy, then good for her. The Breakers beach club and pool area has so many spectacular spots for photographs, trying to understand the significance of this spot. Did she pass you and was simply asked to stop for a photo? Regardless, thanks for sharing.

    The girl looks good - the speedy bag is an icon, and every preppy girl has that outfit in her closet.  My concern is that there are about 50 spots on the grounds of The Breakers that would have resulted in a more interesting picture.
