Life is short. Order the specialty cocktail.
Last night I met my dear gal pal BEH for drinks at Whiskey Park. I pulled out one of my summer favorites, a Betsey Johnson novelty dress I bought two years ago. The weather wasn't quite comparable but I couldn't bare to contain my tanned legs in jeans. Part of my new outlook on life: Why not? As Rose recently said on Golden Girls 'Today is the first day of the rest of your life!' (And then Sophia said, 'Terrific. If I'm lucky I'll live to be 7.')
A few small philosophies for today:
Never thought the words would escape my lips, but you can have chardonnay any day. Have the seasonal drink that you can't order anywhere else. Live a little.
Maybe everything in life changes - friendships, places, situations - except for people. Maybe the best we can do is accept, adapt, and move on.
Find the perfect lipstick/balm/gloss. Search high and low. Find it and commit yourself to it. Don't ever waste another dollar on a different color or brand. I found mine last week, purchased it yesterday, and today I'm going to throw everything else away.
And finally, IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY, DON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL! Good lord! What's with all the negative energy going on in our blog world recently? I know there are people out there who can't stand me and for the life of me I do not understand why they spend their precious time perusing my blog and writing rude comments. Anyone? Bueller?
Anyway, this week's Preppy Pick is Bar and Books. I went to the Beekman location with Miss AEG a few weeks ago. They make one mean Pimm's Cup.
Have a preppy and morally correct Thursday!
