#WishlistWednesday: Monogram Everything!

Monograms are pretty much the key to all preppy looks. I love them because it is personal and a way to express your personality. My monogram wishlist is so long, but I am going to choose my top three monogram wishlist items to profile this week. At this point, I really should have a closet full of monogrammed items…but unfortunately, it is pretty hard to get things monogrammed with my correct initials! I have four initials due to the fact that I have two middle names. Now, most people would just use the first middle initial and let the other one fall by the wayside…but I don’t think that’s right. Especially in my case because each middle name is representative of one side of my family (my Mom’s and my Dad’s).

The first monogram item that I got was my monogram necklace. I found an Esty provider that made a sterling silver necklace with four initials! After trying three different Etsy providers, fourth time was a charm and I was wearing the pretty little thing on my neck in no time!!

Monogrammed Crew Neck Sweatshirt {Various retailers}

There are many retailers and Etsy providers that sell monogrammed items, but Marley Lilly is probably one of the most popular online retailers that I have heard about. Their stuff is pretty great, but I don’t order too often, because their shipping isn’t too “Canada-friendly” (pretty pricey!!). What I love about this crew neck sweatshirt is how the monogram takes up the entire face of the sweatshirt! It is so big and “in your face”, and I can’t deny my love for this piece of clothing! (The colour is pretty uh-mazing too!)

Monogrammed Charm Watch {BeauTresors on Etsy}

Watch

How adorable is this watch? How could I not own one of these? There would be nothing better than to see my initials on this piece of jewelry…every time I need to check the time! Another thing to note: four initials are possible with this provider on Etsy. If you haven’t explored the pages of Etsy, than you are missing out!! There are even more prints available as backgrounds, too – definitely on my wishlist!

Monogrammed Boat and Tote Bag {L.L. Bean

I found out about these bags on Pinterest. They are really simple, and very useful! They come in a variety of colours and don’t automatically come monogrammed. You can have them monogrammed, if you like (why wouldn’t you?). I love this monogrammed tote,  because it is the perfect preppy touch to a summer look. It is reasonably priced as well, which is not a bad thing! Whatever your preference – a single letter, three initials or your name spelled out – they do it all!!

What is the etiquette for monogramming? – check out Friday’s post to find out more about the rules of the monogram.

There are so many things you can monogram. Bags, coats, jackets, vests, rain boots – and I am onside with all of it!!
