I Want That Wednesday

I know today is dreary and miserable, but it could—and should—be filled with plaids and stripes and tiny critters! Why, you may ask? Because Vineyard Vines is now open in Chicago!

Nothing says winter in Chicago quite like brightly colored polos and seersucker… OK maybe not, but hear me out. It’s actually not as crazy-over-the-top-preppy as I imagined it would be. For instance, on a day like today, who wouldn’t want to be home lounging in something like this?

Plaid Shep Shirt, $125; Holiday Tartan Lazy Pants, $59

Or I’m pretty sure I already own a version of this outfit:

Medium Gingham Shirt, $80; Lighthouse V-Neck Sweater, $98

Now sure, some items are over the top. For instance, I can’t imagine rocking this to the Christmas party (TBOX maybe!):

Lobster Crewneck Sweater, $145

But I would absolutely done this little number under the mistletoe (too soon?):

I’ve never been to the Cape or the Hamptons or Martha’s Vineyard (that’s not to say I didn’t think twice about applying for this job), but I’m sure I’d love it. This is what I’d pack to go out there:

Vineyard Whale Weekender Bag, $228

Vineyard Whale Weekender Bag, $228

Because, you know, I’d be rich enough that whatever wouldn’t fit in this Weekender, I’d just buy there, duh : )
