Pink and Green Thursday...On Friday!

Hey Preps!

Yesterday was a blur for me, which is why I have decided to take the liberty to make today my Pink and Green day.  Why?  Because I have come across an up and coming company called The Tipsy Skipper, run by the very lovely Kearsley Lloyd.


About a month ago, I was browsing Twitter, when I came across the Tipsy Skipper.  From adorable printed flats (called Skipper Skimmers), to flip flops, clutches, and totes...the Tipsy Skipper has got me hooked.  This company will go incredibly far, and has the potential to be that of a Lilly Pulitzer one day.

To gain full understanding of what a great line Kearsley has going on, I would like to just quote her "About Me" found on Tipsy Skipper's website:
__________________________________________________________________________________

"Ahoy, and welcome aboard TipsySkipper! Everyone knows that fresh sea breezes, good friends and tasty libations are the makings of great times and wonderful memories. But they are also the inspiration for great designs that buoy the spirit and enliven the senses!
As a descendant of the famous pirate, Captain Morgan — and a pretty fearless graphic designer (BFA, Rhode Island School of Design) — it’s probably not surprising that my cleverest notions are born at sea, under sail. I hope you’ll find that my bold colors and patterns evoke a sense of refreshing, adventurous and rejuvenating exploits — like a climb along the rocky New England coastline or a plunge into Block Island Sound.
Many experiences and creative people have influenced my work, but I owe a debt of thanks to the talented folks at Vineyard Vines and Lilly Pulitzer who, through amazing internships, have enhanced my understanding of commercial design and inspired me to embark on this fantastic voyage.
So, hop in and join me on TipsySkipper — it’s perfectly safe and tons of fun to rock the boat as we set sail through the salty spray in pursuit of treasures ahead! Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!"

Kearsley with one of the Tipsy Skipper's "Captain Morgan Clutches"

Kearsley truly is a talented designer with lots of great pattern ideas and themes.  As a major nautical fan, the designs will be found perfect to wear on sailing trips, or just walking around the bay.  Take a look for yourself:
I am absolutely in love with the Captain Morgan Clutches!


These flats are exactly what every Preppy girl needs for spring,
they stand out when you are wearing basics, and are so fun to play with!

These flip-flops have the potential to be bigger than Eliza B.!
I love have they have the Tipsy Skipper's sailboat logo on them

Matching everything?  I mean does it really get any better than this?

As you can see, Kearsley and the Tipsy Skipper has definitely lead me to a new obsession that I am completely tipsy for!  I highly recommend you check the Tipsy Skipper out!  They have a FacebookTwitter, and Website.  Kearsley is such a doll, and is very willing to help you out with anything!  You definitely don't want to miss out on such a great new find!  

Hope you all had a great week!
