I sincerely apologize...
I don't know where I've been for the past few weeks. Actually, not true. I've been weighed down by school, especially midterms. Still, I don't know how I can make up for an entire month's worth of neglect...
I guess the good thing is that spring break is coming up and I have been out on the streets of the west village, getting my suitcase ready for the warm Palm Beach weather. That, for one, is where I'm planning to spend my days off. Ah, the warm weather and palm trees. I don't think I could ask for more. Actually, I could. The condition of the trip is that I have to deal with my step-grandmother figure. She's perfectly sweet of course. It's just...well this is off topic.
Let me instead tell you about the pleasures of packing for a preppy spring break. There is nothing better than going through your summer wardrobe and taking you credit card to JCrew. Which, I will argue, is an up and coming trendy preppy favorite. If you haven't seen this spring's collection, I suggest you get off your couch and go.
So, the essentials, you ask. Yes. These are the key pieces for the beach:
Polo shirt dress, preferably in a pastel color.
Bermuda shorts. mine personally are reds.
Flip flops. mine match my ribbon belt, but I'm a tool. what can i say.
Short sleve polos.
Rugby halter top.
Lightweight chinos, a little worn from walking in the sand.
LLBean tote, for which to carry your books and your ipod. yes, even preppies tote their ipods.
So I'm off to Palm Beach. Tennis, the pool, the beach, and golf (well, if i golfed. my sister will be the one swinging.) Bisous!
