    As usual, M looks adorable!! Love when you feature her! I agree with Pink Julep - the yellow heels are a great pop of color!

    @Henry—Don’t take her mantra so literally. It’s meant to convey a love for navy, not an exclusive marriage to it.

    ....but, haven’t you pictured her numerous times wearing colors/dresses in colors other than navy?

    @Henry—“Navy or nothing” is the mantra this young lady dresses by. As a ginger, it serves her particularly well. It’s her black.

    What does “navy or nothing” mean? It suggests that navy is the only color to be worn?

    The yellow shoes really make this look - love it!


  • Back to School Giveaway


    Summer is winding down. School is starting up. My interns are not happy about it. Frankly, I’m not happy about it. But there’s always a silver lining. Country Club Prep (currently advertising on Unabashedly Prep) and Boast are going to send one of you back to class with a new wardrobe. What does that entail exactly? A $1,000 Country Club Prep gift card and a complete fall wardrobe from Boast (no, that’s not a typo).

    Whether it was brushing up on literary classics, mushroom hunting, or meetings with the FBI in attempts to secure visas to study abroad in Spain, the summer interns did it in Boast*. You could look just as good in your adventures this fall. Simply enter the giveaway with a photo on Instagram of how you play (tag it with #BoastYourPrep). I’ll choose the winning photograph on September 3rd. Now get back to relishing the last traces of summer...

    The top shot makes my think of Holden Caufield calling through his black book while jaunting around NYC.

    That Wes Anderson influence.

  • Sleepy Jones


    Sit back.
    Stare at the ceiling.
    Stay a while.

    This is the manifesto Andy Spade and long time collaborators Anthony Sperduti and Chad Buri seek to spread with their not-quite-ready-to-wear loungewear label, Sleepy Jones. Inspired by the artists, musicians, designers, and writers that came before them, the guys believe in the virtues of tinkering and pondering...and the perfect uniform in which to do that. Picasso churned out masterpieces in little more than shorts and a robe. Gershwin composed at his piano in his pajamas, bathrobe, and slippers. Hockney simply wore his pajamas out. They wore what was comfortable. And it worked out pretty well for them.

    Mackenzie and I spent last week on Nantucket practically living in our Sleepy Jones. The women’s shirts are cut in a roomier boyfriend silhouette complete with piping and a chest pocket—very cute. The men’s shirts not only look more like button-up shirts (gone are huge pajama shirt buttons) but fit like them. I had a tailor remove the break from my Sol Pajama Pants* (of course) and then proceeded to read, dream, and drink in them. In fact, I’m in my Henry Shirt* (an affordable $96, on sale) right now writing this. The entire American-made collection is turned out in preppy stripes, essential solids, and Liberty of London prints. We’re fans.

    The best part is that one of you will get to kick your pants off and let your mind wander, courtesy of Sleepy Jones. Simply enter the giveaway below and the lucky winner will be drawn this Friday. Then take the weekend to pick out your perfect uniform to sit back and stare at the ceiling.

    These should absolutely come in repp stripe silk. I wanna look like a tie in my oxford cloth sheets!
