Happy Monday! My first class is this week, so I’ve just been getting ready for sorority recruitment (starting Thursday!) and gearing up for school. I don’t know about you, but in all my time spent online, I really, realllyyy enjoy looking at Etsy shops. I love how creative some people are, and it’s kind of like virtual boutique shopping! I’ve found so many wonderful shops in the last few months, and I finally realized it was time to make a favorites list! Enjoy:
AThingCreated stole my heart the moment I first found her shop. The artistic prints are almost all scenes from New York, featuring stylish creative women walking a dog or shopping along 5th Avenue. The prints (also sold in wrapping paper, notebooks, phone cases, etc.) are effortlessly chic and playful.
I’ve talked about ElizabethStPaperie here, and truth be told I just love her nautical stationery. It’s classic and gorgeously crafted. The delicate simplicity of her watercolor is something I certainly want on my desk, and I just think everything in her store is stunning.
My favorite prints from AmandaCBee are her portraits. I love it when she takes a familiar photo of a blogger I follow and transforms it into the cutest animated design. She does commissioned prints like this as well, and I just think it would be perfect for an event or wedding.
Lilly prints galore can be found at MyPinkandGreenGarden, transformed into memo boards, pillows, and canvas hangings. It’s the perfect dorm room decor! You can see some of my favorite items styled here. And be sure to use HAYLEIGH17 for 15% off.
For Lilly printed sweatshirts, LettersByAlex has you covered. The store makes custom sorority and college sweatshirts with printed letters. You get to pick out everything, and I honestly love this unique way of repping your school and letters.
This store has some of the exceptional monogram items I’ve come across. There are cute clutches, beach towels, shoes, duffles, make-up bags, even camera straps(!!) to choose from. I’m saving up for a monogrammed camera strap without a doubt.
I love following Emily’s blog and Instagram (@empirestyleofmind), and in April she opened an Etsy shop too. It features photos she’s taken in beautiful square prints. They’re colorful, whimsical snapshots of life around New York and the world. I think they’d compliment any gallery and add a bright pop.
Key fobs are such a great gift for others and yourself — I don’t know how I didn’t realize their purpose before, but they make it so easy to locate and hold your keys. PalmTreesandParadise makes gingham print and Lilly print ones, and both are adorable. Each is under $7, and she also makes custom notepads and cards.
I love Abigail’s watercolors. They are so light and dainty, and such fun replicas of her subjects. She sells pieces she’s painted from blogger inspiration (so many amazing paintings of Julia Engel, can you blame her?!). I kind of have this secret desire to commission her to paint me one day so I have to hang in a gallery. 😉
For classic monogram decals, look no further. You can stock up on personalized stickers here, in Lilly prints too! Each is only $2-$4, and you can purchase Lilly hair ties from this shop as well.
