Monday Manners: How to Be a Southern Belle

I hope y'all had a wonderful weekend.  We rested up here, since W had a stomach bug.  Saying prayers right now that no one else around here gets it!  Hopefully she'll be able to make it to school tomorrow, since she's feeling better today.

This month's Matchbook magazine was such a great read!  My favorite was the article on How to Be a Southern Belle.  I enjoyed it so much, I wanted to share it with y'all.  Enjoy!


Sitting on the Dock of the Bay is still one of my all-time favorite songs.  Well, that one and Al Green's Let's Stay Together (the hubs and I danced to it at our wedding).  As for Southern Belle Names, I love that they included Maisie.  It's one of my grandmother's names, and she spelled it exactly like that.  Gone With the Wind is still my most favorite movie ever.  I think the first time I watched it was when I was five years old, and have probably seen it over a hundred times.  All of the food in the Southern Dining section has my stomach seriously growling.  LOVE it all, especially pecan pie!  And how fabulous is the end chair in Wisteria.  If I had a walk-in closet, that would most definitely be in it!

Just a heads up, today's the last day to take advantage of J.Crew 30% off everything sale, enter code: CARDMEMBER.  These were some keepers for me...

You can never go wrong with a simple LBD.


Also, right now J.Crew Factory has a sale on all of their spring items.  Also, enter code: SPRINGTOIT, to receive free shipping.  You can't go wrong with any of these classic pieces.  Their cami will be perfect to wear with anything this summer.  I picked up these two...


I also wore their new anchor sweater on Saturday...

One of Baublebar's newest pieces arrived on Friday.  Doesn't it resemble last spring's cupcake necklace from J.Crew, except this one is only $38.

Another steal are these earrings from Baublebar.  You can get all three of these, for the price you'd pay for one pair of Kate Spade bow earrings, and you'd still end up saving $22.  All three together are only $26!  And if it's your first Baublebar purchase, you receive an additional $10 off.

These are two pretties that just premiered today...

I had an Instagram blog sale on Saturday morning, if interested, this Lilly Pulitzer Stephanie Shift Dress is still available, in a size 10.  It's new with tags, selling for only $85.  Email me at sweetsouthernprep at gmail, if interested.  Free shipping! 

Hope y'all have a wonderful start to your week!

  2. Thanks for sharing the Matchbook article! Ha, although I disagree with Alabama by Neil Young on the southern playlist since it and SOuthern Man are not exactly complimentary. . .
