Classy Collars

One of my favorite looks of the season has been sporting a cute collar with an accent necklace.  I feel like it adds that perfect extra touch.

Black Ruffles And Pearls

Dots and A Beaded Bauble

Peter Pan Collar And A Miriam Haskell

Now to focus on the styles I've seen and am loving:

I also love the idea of adding an accent collar as a necklace to any fun top or sweater!

Do you love the touch that a collar can add?

Christmas Wish List 2012

Merry Christmas Eve, everyone!!  I have been waiting all season to share my wish list.  Now that the gift decisions are made, I will now do so.  This is what I'm hoping Santa will be bring to me tonight.

The Mini iPad (with cellular capabilities or whatever it's called) is up for the number one wish on my list.  My phone is constantly being used for too many reasons other than talking and texting, so I think this will be perfect for blogging, online shopping, instagraming, and much more.

I am dying for a new Yurman piece!  Yurman simply makes me melt, so it is sure to always find a spot on my wish list.

If you are a follower of A Preppy State of Mind on Instagram, then you know the latest collection by Kiel James Patrick, the Vicker's Bow Bracelets, are my latest obsession as they are a fun and unique way to add a touch of bow and a pattern to your outfits.  I seriously would love to have the entire collection, so I'm wishing for a few more to aid to my obsession.

I am wishing for another J.Crew quilted vest.  I own a navy one, but I would love nothing more than to have a pink one.  I would monogram it and enjoy it on many occasions.

One thing you must know about me, I am the worst when it comes to surprises.  It is almost impossible to surprise me with something.  Maybe it's due to the fact that there's something I'm always wanting…I'm just not sure.  But this year, I would love to be surprised with some fun gifts!  We'll just have to see.

One thing I do know for sure, Jaycee pup will be receiving some posh surprises to fit her posh little self this Christmas.

What is on your Christmas wish list for this year?  Please do share.  My Christmas excitement is at it's fullest.

Everyone enjoy your Christmas Eve!  May you sit back, relax, and savor the magical season with the ones you love today and tomorrow.

Add A Pattern!

One of my favorite go-to accessories in my closet are my patterned tights!  I can truly say that they have been one of the highlights of my fall/winter wardrobe.  Having mostly blacks, browns, navy, and beige tights, I feel like there is a pair to add a touch of fun to every outfit I put together.  

You may have a simple sweater, then pair it with your favorite tweed skirt!  Add a pair of pattern tights (in this case zig zag), and throw in a pair of bow wedges, a belt, and bracelet, and such. What a cute outfit you have!

Here are a few options for some patterned tights:

1 ~ 2 ~ 3 ~ 4 ~ 5 ~ 6 ~ 7 ~

I personally have a favorite pair of patterned tights which I purchased from Francesca's.  They are houndstooth and are available in both brown and black!  I not only love the look, but they are so soft and comfortable.

Patterned tights are a wonderful way to bring a pop of whimsy into your outfits!

Do you love pattered tights?

Preppy Packages Under Your Tree

When you are in need of inspiration, Pinterest is the best way to go!  I have been in need of some inspiration for wrapping my Christmas presents for everyone.  I want some sparkle, but most of all, something cute and unique.  Here are some of my favorite present wrapping pins.

A Roll of Pink Glitter Paper

Glitter Ribbon…the perfect way to add just a pop of glitter!

A bow of Christmas lights

The ornaments are perfect!

This is what my room is sure to look like once I'm finished with my gift wrapping.

The perfect way to gift wrap a bow tie or tie!!

Maybe I'm biased since I can reed music, but this looks so elegant...

Sugar Plum Fairy Wands!

Chevron is always perfect!

How precious!!

I love the simplicity of this look.

Of course, the Lilly wrapping is always a winner.

What cute ideas have you come up with to wrap your preppy packages this year?
