Back to School, Back to Preppy Cool

It’s that time of year already (what some parents call “the most wonderful time of the year”), when the kids head back to the classroom, college kids descend on campus, and professionals capitalize on clothing and supply sales, sprucing up the office space with a little this and that while adding a few key pieces to the wardrobe.

I’m loving these coastal-inspired leather belts by Patty Anderson, who also creates jewelry and accessories, at Island Outfitters on Thames Street in Newport (we’re also looking forward to her new line of footwear, set to debut soon). There’s a host of belt options from conservative to bold to metallics and adorable brushed molten pewter buckles with three-dimensional scallop shell, anchor, starfish, sand dollar, flower, and sea turtle designs!

I was also charmed by the adorable Lilly Pulitzer stationary stash found at Chace N’Lulu on America’s Cup Avenue, which included indulgently preppy note cards, calendars, agenda books, pink and green pencils, circle notes and more (like the Lilly dry erase boards I spotted online). You may have spotted the Lilly jeep in town over weekend (above)–it is simply adorable!
