Delight of the Day 12/14

Marley LillyLet’s be honest. Ladies love monograms. We monogram our pillows, our bags, our planners, our towels – and especially our jewelry. One of my all-time favorite spots for buying monogrammed everything is Marley Lilly. They have pretty much everything you could think of. The best part? They offer items at every price range, so it’s a great place to find gifts this holiday season. Oh, and I have mentioned that they have flash sales almost every day? It’s true!

The lovely ladies there sent me one of their Monogrammed Classic Pearl Necklaces, typically $34.99, for the holidays, and it has been my staple necklace ever since. It comes in gold, silver, or rose gold and incorporates two of my favorite things – pearls and monograms. I love that it’s casual enough for everyday wear, but I could also wear it to my office holiday party.


Cold Weather Essentials

I don’t know about where you live, but it is getting cold in Pennsylvania! With Christmas coming up, it’s impossible to stay bundled up inside under blankets, so I’m sharing some of my favorite cold weather essentials! What are your must-haves?

Tory Burch + Neiman Sales

Both Tory Burch and Neiman Marcus are having huge sales right now, and I did NOT want you to miss out! I’m snagging a few gifts for The Boy and my sister, but I think I deserve one or two things, right? p.s. Tory and Neiman both have incredible gift packaging, so definitely opt for that if your wrapping skills are as awful good as mine!

Delight of the Day 11/19

“My rule is: if it’s not moving, monogram it.” – Reese Witherspoon

Girls love monograms. It’s practically in our DNA. Sweaters? Norts? Sheets? Koozies? Hats? Silverware? Yep, we’ve got it all. It’s a serious addition. (My boyfriend likes to say I can’t buy anything else with my monogram, because we’re moving in together this weekend. Until my last name is changed, I’m buying monograms. Not sorry.)  So what better way to incorporate every girl’s favorite logo with one of her favorite preppy brands? Meet Kiel James Patrick’s Monogrammed Cape Codder, $168. I’ve been eying up these adorable bags for quite a while, and now that they’ve added the monogram to them, how could I possibly turn one down? Can’t justify buying yourself another monogram? Circle back to the beginning of this paragraph – you don’t need justification. Buy one as a gift for your sister, little, best friend, etc.! Best. Gift. Ever.
