Pretty is the new North Face

The thought of summer has me yearning for classic clothes.  My taste doesn't really tend to lean toward the outrageous and experimental, but the (hopefully) impending good weather has me fully committed to the clean lines and bold colors that characterize East Coast preppy style.  My designer of choice today?  Kate Spade.

Candy Shop Jeanette Dress
Maire Dress
Ikat Caroline Dress
Striped Betty Dress
Striped Jeanette Dress
Striped Jillian Dress

CAN YOU TELL HOW I FEEL ABOUT STRIPES?  But honestly, I drool all over these.  Figuratively, of course.  Don't be gross.  True, not strictly preppy, but they're all, "Assistant, tell them I can make the polo match on Thursday as long as it doesn't interfere with the regatta that weekend.  And make sure I have a hat!"

Seriously.  I wish.  Someone hit me up with a big straw hat.

I want all the structured fun that is the essence of these dresses!  Just looking at them automatically improves my mood.  Just imagine what wearing them would do.  I know, my mind is blown, too.  Now that I know what I have in mind, I'll have to go find myself some more, ahem, attainable (read: affordable) options to fulfill my needs.  But for those of you who are capable, by all means, attain.  I won't hold it against you.  I'll have fun just knowing these are being worn somewhere.

What are you gunning to wear when better weather arrives?

Those are ADORABLE.

Personally, though, I'm gunning for a classy, flattering pair of jean shorts. But, that's not up your alley, I know.
