So I got the idea for this blog from my favorite, College Prepster, who did a favorite things holiday gift exchange with her friends that I mentioned in an earlier post. You always hear about sorority girls dressing a certain way or liking certain things so I thought I’d post a few of my favorite things that I’ve obtained since being in college and being in a sorority.
I LOVE my Sperry rainboots! They are nice to have in the Midwest because they work in all sorts of weather. I can wear them in rain or snow, and they keep me nice and dry! I love to wear my rainboots because then I can splash in puddles as a “grown up”.
I wear leggings every day that I can. I know it might be looked down upon to wear leggings as pants, but I really do not care much. They are comfy and I can wear them with anything. I normally wear them with boots and a longer shirt.
My Lilly croakies were a staple for me this summer. I spent some time on my friends’ boats and I didn’t want to lose my favorite sunglasses by accident! It’s nice to not have to put my glasses on my head or to have to worry about them getting lost or scratched. Lilly Pulitzer has a ton of super cute prints, but her dresses can get pretty pricey.
I’m obsessed with anything monogram. You could put my monogram on a bracelet, t-shirt or bag and I’d wear all of them at the same time. My friends are all obsessed too! I have crafted a bunch of coozies with monograms on them, and they’ve been a hit!
“Norts” stands for Nike shorts and they are a college staple. They’re great to work out in because they have built in underwear, but you can also wear them on an everyday basis. They come in tons of fun colors, so you can match them to your shoes too!
I got these riding boots last year for Christmas. They are the perfect style, and they weren’t $300. They’re Etienne Aigner and my mom bought them at Macy’s. The brown isn’t too dark, so I can still wear them with black skinny pants. Riding boots are a closet staple because you can use them to dress up any outfit! I’ll wear mine with leggings and a long shirt, and I can go out for the night and still be comfortable.
I would not have made it through my college career without my pair of Sperries. I give campus tours and I’ve worn mine during almost every tour so they’re getting pretty worn down. That almost gives them more character and makes them more comfortable! They are known to give people blisters, but I’ve never gotten any from mine. Be warned: don’t wear socks with your Sperries! It’s a major faux pas.
These are a few of my favorite things. If you like any of what you see and need to know where you can find your own, leave a comment and I can help you out!
