Wednesday Obsession: Monograms

Favorite Monograms

Even though I was a little skeptical about monograms at first, I’ve slowly grown my collection of monogrammed items to the point where I’m a little embarrassed to think about everything I own with my initials on it. Monograms are a perfect way to add a little personalization to your wardrobe, and even a simple initial lets you display your name loud and proud. In the wise words of many Pinterest quotes, “You’re never fully dressed without a monogram.”

    I love the crisp look of monograms, but grow weary of investing in pieces since sometime down the road my initials will likely change. For now I just stick to S’s since it’s my first initial too and that won’t shift haha I love the baseball cap. Such a fun way to mix up a classic item! Thanks for sharing!
    Peace, Sarah

    • I totally agree – right now I’m into smaller monogrammed pieces but I definitely hope that some day (!) I’ll be able to invest in a more expensive piece with my new monogram. Thanks for reading! πŸ™‚ // Hannah

    • Those monogrammed headbands are so cute and so comfy! πŸ™‚ Thanks for reading! // Hannah

  • I only have a couple monogrammed items–my favorite and most worn being one of my sorority spirit jerseys! I tend to buy a lot of A items, though, since that’s my first (and last!) initial. So not technically monogrammed, but personalized all the same.

      Alexandra, I do the same with S’s! Gotta love the double letter initials!

    • Single letter monograms are so cute, especially if it works for your first and your last name! I think a spirit jersey is the next item on my monogram list πŸ™‚ Thanks for reading! // Hannah

    I’ve always wanted to get a monogrammed necklace, but I wasn’t sure if they’d look good on me. So I stick to monogrammed bags–they’re always super cute!

    • I have actually never thought about monogramming a bag, but that sounds adorable! Monogrammed necklaces come in so many sizes and colors that I’m sure you could find one that would look fabulous on you! Thanks for reading! πŸ™‚ // Hannah

  • Hello, just stumbled onto your blog a few weeks ago + followed you on Pinterest! πŸ™‚

    Not gonna lie, I used to really dislike the whole monogram trend – it’s definitely far out of my usual style (think more Kylie Jenner, less Lilly Pulitzer haha).

    But one of my college housemates has so many cute monogrammed pieces; every time she wore something monogrammed, I felt totally envious! It really is a cute, girly style!

    Long story short: I’m now a monogram junkie and I ain’t mad about it! πŸ˜‰

    • I used to not like monograms either – my mom had a bunch and I thought that it was really weird to wear your initials like that! But now I think I wear one almost every day (not that it’s a bad thing! πŸ™‚ ). Thanks for reading and for the follow! // Hannah

    I LOOVVEE all things monogram! I have monogram everything. I live by that rule that everything can and should be monogrammed!

    • It’s a great rule to follow! Thanks for reading! πŸ™‚ // Hannah

  • I have a monogramed gold wallet and I AM OBSESSED! It can fit so much in it, all my cards, cash and change, lipstick, chapstick, gum AND my phone! If you don’t have something similar you should get that next! It’s a lifesaver!

    • That sounds wonderful! I actually dropped my wallet on the ground last week and it broke so I’ve been needing to get a new one – where did you get yours from? // Hannah

  • Makaela Premont

    I love the whole monogramed trend! I have a monogramed key chain made out of faux leather that I adore.

    • Ahh that’s fabulous! Where did you get it from? I had an acrylic one but I dropped it on my tile floor and it broke πŸ™

        I got it from Groupon when I typed in monogrammed keychain and it was like $5!
