PREPPY LOOK WITH NAUTICAL STRIPES

A preppy look with nautical stripes has been one of my all time favourites in summer! And it doesn’t only look great at sea, it works very well in the countryside too. If someone were to ask me about my favourite prints for the summer months, I wouldn’t even have to think about it: It’s stripes and gingham (stripes are an allrounder though and work so well in winter too). I love the ease and playfulness that comes with nautical stripes; and there are always such great accessories out there. I think nobody does them as good as Tommy Hilfiger. I ordered this silk scarf from Tommy Hilfiger some weeks ago which goes with a tons of things. preppy look with nautical stripes
 
 

We took the photos at Attingham Park in Shropshire. We are always surprised how quickly time goes by when we visit such big estates. Usually it takes us all day which probably isn’t a surprise here as the parkland at Attingham Park comprises 4,5 miles. Well, those lords and ladies were never short of space, were they? The mansion is Regency style and of course we had to have a look inside. It was very quiet which made us think of Blenheim Palace where we found the exact opposite. It’s very touristy and although it’s beautiful, the fact that it’s so busy made it less appealing. We prefer the less busy destinations like this one which are often underrated but no less attractive. On the contrary, really. preppy look with nautical stripes
 
 

After some hours in the park and a visit to the walled garden (there were so many pretty blooms that I think they deserve their very own post), we went to The Mansion Café, found a pretty spot outside in the nicest weather and had a little snack; there were even 2 glutenfree cake options and we couldn’t have asked for more. preppy look with nautical stripes
