monday mood: modern preppy

Hard to believe summer is over and the kids are headed back to school! That's got us thinking about cooler weather ahead and taking advantage of all the AMAZING beginning of season sales. On vacation we devoured the book "Classic Style", and we just stumbled on these amazing looks from Frances Valentine...so much fall inspiration! We're loving a classic red, white, and blue palette with a pop of olive for a "modern preppy" look. And can we talk about those embellishments...pom poms, piping, and monogramming?! Pair a bold lip with classic stripes, add a trench (a must-own wardrobe staple!) and a fun pair of shoes, and you're good to go. We've rounded up our favorites below to get the "modern preppy" look we're loving, and more of our "fashion favorites" here!
