Excuse me while I have a preppy moment...

Liz Claiborne S/S 09 ad

The imminence of Spring is making me want to break out my old polo shirts, pop the collars, and go horseback riding or golfing or something like that. Is that an awful confession to make? It's probably not something I should admit on a fashion blog, especially one like this that is so dominated by the leather/dark/studded trends. Maybe it's because the market has been oversaturated by the rocker look, but for whatever reason these clean and preppy designs are really satisfying to me right now - especially the crisp khaki pants and abundance of plaid. So Spring-y and fresh!

I love the first two dresses, I have a couple new spring outfits that I've bought within the last month all hung up and just dying to be worn. Unfortunately I'll probably have to wait until mid April for it to warm up enough.

Oh preppiness, so lovely! I featured the Burberry ads on my blog too :-). That first pic is amazing, great Spring inspiration.

Can I say that I ADORE the new Isaac Mizrahi collection for Liz Claiborne and I've been lustfully staring at it online every day? I'm so ready for spring and I do play golf and I'm a fashion accessories blog - I'm not ashamed at all! Viva la prep!

I'm so glad that you're all feeling the preppy love too! I don't feel so ashamed anymore now that I know I have company in preppiness :)

I really love the Liz Claribourne advertisement. It's so surreal since I am always on public transportation. Well, maybe not as chic as they are, but close enough. lol.

Even if you're wearing preppy clothes, I think you can still look rocker in it with your makeup and hair. Just take a look at these models, there's something unkempt and "rocker in the daytime at my parent's house" to them.

I love the full-skirted Liz Claiborne look in the first pic.

In this months Lucky there is a another version of the ad that is wonderful with tons of color. I need to scan it, I haven't seen it online yet.
