Summer Swap Questions

So my fabulously cute new Summer Swap partner has compiled a list of questions for me to answer to get to know me better.

1. Besides pink and green … what other colors do you like?

I am currently loving aqua and green together. And yellow. I love just about every color other than grape/purples.

2. What are your favorite things to do?

Other than my blog obsession? I love to sew, craft, shop, go out to coffee or eat with girlfriends, bake/cook, read magazines and play with my puppy.

3. Where do you shop and what are your favorite things to buy?

For clothes, JCrew, Lilly, Gap (when they have classics in stock), Banana Republic and Ralph Lauren. I have periods of great success (read: finding Lilly and VV for a steal) at TJMax and Marshalls- though they are hit or miss. As for what I buy, pretty much the same things over and over. Capri pants, skirts, and shoes. And of course I am a long suffering polo-shirt-a-holic who should probably start looking into 12-step programs soon.

4. Do you have any hobbies?

Sewing, crafting, and if I am in the mood, cooking. OMG I have the hobbies of an old lady. How sad! I'm going to try to think of it as "retro" though because it seems to be "in" to be retro. :)

5. What is your monogram?


6. What was the last meal you had?

Veggie lasagna.

7. If you had a free weekend and money was not an option … where would you go?

Napa- I've never been there before and would bring a group of my best girls for food and wine all weekend.

8. What is your favorite thing to wear?

Polo shirt, capri pants/skirt, flip flops, LL Bean tote bag. This is seriously like my uniform - I wear it almost every day.

9. On a scale of 1 to 10 … how preppy are you?

Hmmm....pretty high. Maybe an 8 or 9? I'd say an 8 because I definitely have my share of days wearing comfy yoga pants and a tank top.

10. On a rainy day … what do you like to do?

Snuggle on my bed with my puppy and either a girly movie or a stack of magazines.

11. Favorite preppy designers?

Lilly Pulitzer, JCrew, Ralph Lauren, Vineyard Vines, Kate Spade, Stephan Bonanno and LL Bean boat totes.

12. Favorite preppy accessories?

I wear my silver Tiffany bracelet (MOH present from Bestie) several days each week. I wear pearls a lot too. I have a bunch of pearl necklaces- most fake that I made myself. I also love fun, chunky beaded necklaces. I wear ribbon belts all the time. Or sometimes just a ribbon in lieu of a belt. I almost never wear earrings but if I do, they are very simple.

13. Any other favorite things?

Hmmm... I love lots of things. Cookbooks. I read them as if they are novels. Magazines. Trashy tabs, cooking, home decor, style and fashion. I buy ribbon and fabric like it's going out of style. And I love ultra fine point colored sharpies.

14. Do you collect anything?

Not specifically.

15. Favorite thing to do in the Summer?

Grill outside, weekend trips, eat ice cream, farmers markets, garden (and by garden I mean I grown tomatoes and herbs and peppers in pots. we're not talking major gardening here), and eat all the yummy summer fruits and veggies.

16. What most makes you think of Summer?

Tomatoes, sweet corn and ice cream stands finally opening up. Sailboats. Flip flops. Iced coffee. And weddings. Although this year I don't have another wedding scheduled until December.

17. Favorite treat/drink?

I love sweet tea. And Diet Coke. Iced coffee. Margaritas and mojitos and sangria. And I know it's not a drink but I really really love ice cream. (the Skinny Cows in my freezer are just not cutting it at the moment. I am sooo ready for the ice cream stands to finally open!)

18. Any thing else you think I should know that I completely left out?

I can't think of anything. I'm pretty simple I think. But let me know if you have any other questions!

And I think you need to answer these questions too!! Fun survey- thanks for thinking of all the great questions!!
