As much as every graduate probably loves (and let's be honest--needs) money, sometimes it's nice to give your grad something a little more personal and practical to celebrate this big occasion! Today, I teamed up with my sister, Hannah, to share a few ideas that would be perfect for the college-bound graduate! (Bonus: most are available for 2-Day shipping!) 




BLUETOOTH WIRELESS HEADPHONES

No more fussing with tangled cords when you're trying to study! These little ear buds are perfect for any graduate and compatible with any Bluetooth capable device.

MONTHLY PLANNER

A cute planner is the perfect way to stay organized and on top of all their new classes. Start them off right by adding a set of cute stationery--just make sure they schedule a trip home ASAP ;)

MESH SHOWER CADDY TOTE

Fill this practical shower caddy with some sweet bath and body products to pamper your grad while they're away!

PORTABLE USB PHONE CHARGER

Never miss a call from mom ;) keep your phone fully charged through all those lectures and late night study dates with a portable phone charger!

BRITA PITCHER + CUTE TUMBLER

Don't waste money on bottled water for that mini fridge! Filtered water is cheap and easy with a Brita pitcher. Personalize the gift by adding a cute tumbler, too.

BEDREST PILLOWLAP DESK

Not all dorms will have room for a full chair, but a cute bedrest pillow and lap desk will give your student a comfortable place to work or rest.

BULLETIN BOARD

Fill a cute bulletin board with inspirational quotes and encouraging notes for a sweet daily reminder that will keep them organized and motivated!

DESK LAMP + SMART LED BULB

There will definitely be some late night cramming in your student's future, so make sure they have the proper lighting for their desk or bedside table. Add a color-changing smart bulb they can control with their phone to keep sleeping roommates happy, too!

COZY PILLOW + THROW

Send them off with the comforts of home! This sweet pillow and blanket combo will be cozy and inviting after a long day of lectures.

MONOGRAM WEEKENDER BAG

Personalized and practical! A monogrammed weekender or tote bag is a great gift that will last for years and keep your grad organized and ready for their next adventure!

PORTABLE HAMPER

This fun hamper is a great addition to any dorm room and the side handles make it easy to drag back and forth to the laundry. Gift it with a few laundry essentials (detergent, dryer sheets, and stain remover!) for a pretty take on practical.

HANGING CLOSET ORGANIZER

This closet organizer is a great solution for that cramped and crowded dorm-life. Fill it with some new collegiate gear to fuel their new team spirit!

UNDER BED STORAGE

These tidy storage cases fit neatly under any bed and are perfect for storing items that aren't needed regularly, like empty duffles and opposite season attire.

LARGE MAKEUP CASE

Keep your counters clutter-free and make travel a breeze with this large, double zip makeup bag. It fits a ton and is easy to tote from room to room.



Do you have a graduate to celebrate this year? Any of these picks would be a great last minute gift for anyone on your list! What would you add?

Sunny Yellow Stripes






OUTFIT DETAILS
Yellow OTS Top // Jeans (similar) // Sandals // Earrings (similar)


Yellow is such a happy color! Since the sun is finally shining regularly and the temps are climbing super quickly, I'm excited to break out all of my open back, off the shoulder, strappy tops and dresses! The midwest doesn't do heat lightly, so when I saw this sweet yellow OTS top at Pink Blush, I just had to add it to my arsenal!









I love PinkBlush for their affordable, boutique styles! This top is only $37 and comes in both yellow and pink stripes! Sizes are limited so hurry before they sell out! Speaking of affordable--have you checked out the new Time & Tru line at Walmart? These sandals were less than $6 and go with literally anything. I'm thinking about going to pick them up in black and brown, too!

I'm heading back to Lexington for a week over Memorial Day and think this top might have to come with. Are you making any exciting summer plans, yet? Spill the details in the comments!
