A few weeks ago, I ordered a grass green cardigan from Lands' End.  Earlier in the day, I purchased a hot pink cardigan at Talbot's sale.  I took them to a monogram place to have them monogrammed.  Last Saturday, I picked them up.  They were perfect!  I had the green cardigan monogrammed with navy interlocking script and the hot pink monogrammed with lime green casual script.  I can't wait to wear them.  I'm going to wear the green with a navy skirt and navy/white striped blouse.  The hot pink is going to be reserved for weekend casual wear with jeans or khakis. 

I had planned on being lazy this weekend, but got a burst of energy and cleared out a bunch of projects that I was saving for next month.  I feel good to have them behind me.

Last night I stayed up late reading early posts and comments from my blog.  There were a lot of bloggers who always commented that are not around anymore.  Preppy 101, BroncoMom, Kate to just name a few.  I guess people's lives get busy or their priorities change.  There are new bloggers popping up every day. I'm preppy in a non-preppy environment.  I rely on the preppy blogs to keep up with what is out there. 

I hope everyone has a great Sunday!

I can't believe it has been a week since my last post. 

Since I have lost two people that I was close to tragically, I decided to spend my free time immersed in shallow mindless stuff.  I have gotten addicted to wicked preppy and prepfection tumblr sites.  I cruise the sites getting inspiration for outfits that are not so boring. It has been very relaxing.  You need to check them out.

I'm on the lookout for some nice navy flats that are appropriate for work.  I would love a pair of navy Tory Burch Revas, but they are not to be found.  I like the Ferragamo Varinas but they don't come in narrow widths.  I may have to go to Saks and try them on.  Have any of you seen any cut navy flats out there?  I haven't even seen any that aren't cute. LOL!

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday.

I have to go to another funeral tomorrow.  My boss from my previous job took his own life last week.  I'm not sure of the circumstances, but he never gave me any indication that he was a troubled person.  I was his executive assistant for almost three years.  He was very good to offer me a job when I thought I was about to be displaced.  I pray for his widow and his two little girls.  My heart is heavy as is the hearts of all who knew him.  He will be missed.
