Catching up from the weekend?
Is it just me or is the first day back after a long weekend the hardest? I woke up and it was so overcast that I thought that my alarm was wrong. It was in the 60’s and gloomy all day long. It even rained for a few mins!! Can you believe it? So unlike LA. Plus I had a hard time getting motivated all day. Oy.
Finally I went on a run and then I made this:
In other news, this arrived today:
It’s the sequel to the Preppy Handbook! Wahoo!
I think it should be noted that “preppy” is a throwback to classic etiquette. Please note: as a race studies law student I find the saying “good old days, the ways things used to be” to be racist, sexist, and likely classist. However, True Preps are all about the art of the handwritten thank you note, casual elegance, and classic style. Its not about how much Lilly Pulitzer you wear, it’s about kicking it “old world”. It’s not about how much money you have because talking about money is considered vulgar. I will admit that this is a complicated, possibly troublesome concept, but I will not elaborate more. This is a Food and Lifestyle Blog, not my liberal manifesto.
Anyways, I decided to go on a scavenger hunt for examples of prep around my apartment. Here is what I found:
Monogrammed LL Bean Boat and Tote
Vintage post card from Martha’s Vineyard (double points!) and my Vineyard cup. I spend 8 consecutive summers in the Vineyard. 3 of them were with the Sailing Scouts. Yep, I was a sailing scouts. Triple preppy points!
That’s about it for tonight. For something completely different: I’m currently watching “Barbershop” which is one of my favorite movies of all time! Hope everyone had a good Tuesday (Monday). Only three more days until the weekend!
