How to Get Preppy Stickers

Hi everyone!
One of the questions I get asked the most is how I get all of my preppy stickers!  So, today I am going to share my tips and tricks with you all!!

Here is my laptop full of preppy stickers!
Vineyard Vines Whale, "I Whale Missouri" and MO Whale all from Vineyard Vines // Monogram and "Work Hard Shop Harder" from SunshineVinyl // Jack Rogers Sticker // Lilly Pulitzer Palm Tree // Let All That You Do Be Done In Love // J.Crew Enthusiast // Delta Zeta

How to Get Preppy Stickers 101

1. With a Purchase
A ton of preppy companies will send stickers out with a purchase. For instance, Vineyard Vines, Southern Proper, Jadelynn Brooke, Southern Shirt Company, Lauren James, Marley Lilly, and Fraternity Collection all send out stickers with a purchase!! If you shop at a store or boutique that has one of these brands, they probably have stickers also! Don't be afraid to ask for some!

2. Email a Company
Another great way is to email a company! I have found that a lot of companies are more than willing to send out stickers to anyone that asks! It is best to contact the company's customer service to ask for the stickers! Here are some companies that I have had success with in the past:
Vineyard Vines: tieguys@vineyardvines.com
Patagonia: customer_service@patagonia.com
Jack Rogers: customerservice@jackrogersusa.com
Southern Proper: customerservice@southernproper.com

3. Sign up for Sticker of the Month Club
A few companies are starting to do this again and I think that it is awesome! Lauren James has advertised this on their Instagram and it is $5 for 5 brand new stickers, shipping, and chances to win prizes every month!! I am definitely going to take advantage of this! Marley Lilly also does this!!

4. Sign up for Free Stickers
Some companies send out free stickers for people who sign up for email! This is an extremely easy way to get stickers!! Here are a few companies that offer this: Lauren James, Jadelynn Brooke, Rowdy GentlemanSouthern Tide

5. Buy them!
Buying stickers may not be as fun as getting them for free, but if you want unique and extremely cute stickers this is the way to go. Redbubble.com offers a tremendous amount of super cute stickers at great prices! In fact, I ordered some of the stickers for my laptop from Redbubble! For monogram stickers I highly recommend Sunshine Vinyl of Etsy! Sarah does a great job and all of her products are adorable!! You can find her shop here.

Pretty in J.Crew

Hi everyone!
I absolutely LOVE the J.Crew Herringbone Vest! It is extremely versatile and can be worn with many other prints. I love to wear mine with a super cute striped t-shirt. This outfit is perfect for the colder weather while still looking extremely cute! It can be easily bared with a pair of Bean Boots and a monogram statement necklace. Plus, add my favorite pink Ray-Bans and you've got a super cute look!

My Favorite Necklaces

Hi everyone!
My absolute favorite accessory is a necklace. I love how versatile they can be and how they can really just pull an outfit together. Plus, my favorites can be worn year-round!! I wanted to share with you all some of my favorites and how to get them for great prices!

This gorgeous monogram is from Love Always Couture. I bought it over the holidays and it might be one of my favorite purchases ever! I got it in the size 3XL (2.3 in.) in the Classic Monogram style. It is gold plated and absolutely perfect! You can get yours here! For another alternative, you can get a similar monogram necklace herehere, and here.

Anyone that knows me knows that I am obsessed with Kendra Scott Elisa Necklaces. They are the perfect way to make a statement but are so elegantly subtle. They are absolutely gorgeous and can honestly pull any outfit together.

You can find these Kendra's hereherehere, and here
You can also sign up for emails at www.kendrascott.com to receive 15% off your next purchase. And, during your birthday month you receive 50% off!! 
I absolutely love the Iridescent Druzy and I can't wait to add this beauty to my collection!

I am SO obsessed with this!! It is in my school colors so it must be meant to be! ;) I can't wait to get it and wear some super cute outfits to football and basketball games!

Messy Bun and Getting Stuff Done

Striped Tee//Kendra Scott Necklace//J.Crew Bracelet//Converse//Leggings//Watch

Oversized t-shirts and leggings are my go-to everyday class look. Top that off with the messy fun bun and you got what I wear more often than I should! ;) This shirt (linked above!!) has quickly become one of my favorites. It is from Old Navy and it is only $7!!! It is a high-low and it is the absolute perfect length to wear with my favorite Old Navy leggings. The nice thing about this shirt is that you can dress it up, like I did, or dress it down with a cute baseball cap and tennis shoes!

On the Town

Hi everyone!
I hope everyone has had a great and relaxing weekend! This is one of my favorite looks, probably because I am obsessed with stripes! I was able to wear this casual-chic look over the weekend while my best friend from school and I wandered around my favorite city, STL!

My top is from JCrew and is super comfy! It is more of a "boyfriend" or oversized fit and it is perfect to wear with jeans and just long enough to wear with leggings. 
I honestly swear by Old Navy jeans. They are a great price and it is nearly impossible to find a style and fit that you won't love. They are also pretty good quality for only being $30!! Plus, they always have sales going on!!
I bought my necklace from Love Always Couture on New Years after envying Caitlin from Southern Curls and Pearls and Emily from The Sweetest Thing for probably over a year. I was always a little hesitant to buy one but I absolutely love it! I bought a 3XL (2.5 in.) necklace in the classic design which you can buy here
This Tory Burch bag is my favorite tote ever! I used it all of last semester to carry my laptop and notebooks in for class! It is extremely durable and has a crazy amount of space. I bought the regular sized "York" tote and it is the perfect size for me. And, did I mention that the details on this bag are gorgeous! I mean, just look at those buckles! 
My hat is from Vineyard Vines and it is quickly becoming my favorite hat. It is a great color for every season and it can be worn year round. Also, it will pretty much go with everything!!

On a separate note, who has been watching The Bachelor? I couldn't get into it this season. (Nick isn't exactly my favorite...I didn't even like him on The Bachelorette with Andi!!) What do y'all think about this season? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments! :)
