New From Old Town: A Preppy Lookbook To Heat Up Your Summer

The stylish team behind Old Town Alexandria's Bishop Boutique couldn’t confine all the summery fun inside their new lookbook to just one word. So, they’ve creatively coined "patriautical," which signifies the union of patriotic and nautical. (Is there a more perfect time for such a lookbook? We think not.)
Styled by The Fashionably Broke bloggers Natalie and Erika and Bishop staffer/blogger Bryayly Richards, the collection of snapshots highlights perfectly preppy staples on the waterfront in historic Old Town. We spy an adorable Milly lobster tote, Art Deco bangles from CC Skye, LK Bennett floral platforms — and, of course, sparklers! Local photog Susannah Marlowe-Galan captured the fun in some perfectly Pinnable images, so click through to get all (fire)worked up for the Fourth. (See, we can make up new words, too!)
