The sudden change to brisk fall weather means I’m breaking out my favorite pair of velvet J Brand skinnies. They’re perfectly preppy with just the right hint of edge and make me think of the Gossip Girl ladies sitting around on the steps of the Met and of prep school princesses. While I raised an eyebrow at my parents offer to send me to boarding school for high school, I can’t help but love the preppy style that is so intertwined with this milieu. To achieve your own preppy perfection think Ralph Lauren, luxe velvets, tartans prints, and colored shirts.

    I love the preppy look!
    is this Montreal? I didn’t know you had those Parisian looking “Metropolitan” signs there too!

      Yep, it’s downtown right on the edge of the Old Port…the whole area has such a wonderful Parisian feel!
