Back to School Roundup: Bags

Back to School Roundup: Bags on Monogrammed Magnolias

I hate to burst your bubble but it’s that time of year again…back to school! Love it or hate it, it’s happening so you might as well make the most of it. Half the battle is making sure you’re fully prepared for what’s in store so I’ve gathered together my top back to school bags.

In high school, I was strictly a tote bag girl mostly because I was a full blown Miss Priss and while not much has changed in that department I did switch to a backpack in college for practicality reasons, which is probably the opposite route compared to most. Personally, I’m a fan of both. For instance, my MWF classes in college were the worst, a jam packed schedule from eight to four. Those were my backpack days because believe me when I say it, a backpack will save your back when you are carrying five different textbooks, notebooks, folders, and a laptop. You don’t want all that breaking your Longchamp straps or worse your actual shoulders.

During my senior year, I had a much lighter schedule filled with small lectures and computer labs that mostly required a single notebook. That’s when the tote bag came in handy. It doubled as a purse so if I wanted to grab a bite to eat with my friends off campus I could leave straight after class without heading back to my dorm to drop off a load of books.

Oh and don’t think these bags are just for school, I’m definitely a fan of the backpack as a purse trend too. I’m all for the 10 Things I Hate About You vibes of carrying a tiny backpack to the mall, the 90s are coming back after all.

No matter your preference there’s a bag to fit your needs from Tory B to BP. and everything in between, you’re sure to find the perfect bag for you. Oh, one more thing, shop fast because some of these picks are currently in the #NSale and prices go up August 8th!

Cheers to an incredible school year, ladies! Oh and don’t forget to follow Monogrammed Magnolias on Facebook as I’ll be sharing more #BackToSchool sales and trends over there.

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 8th this year. That’s less than 2 weeks away. Whoa. That really snuck up on me. No worries though, there’s plenty of time to pick out the perfect gift for your momma. To get the ball rolling, I’ve picked more than a few pieces that I know my mom would absolutely love and maybe your mom will to. You can shop these picks directly by clicking the item photo or the link in the description. While you’re at it, let me know your favorite in the comments!

Throw Pillow – I could definitely see this little pillow being a cute reminder of how awesome Mom is every time she sits in her chair.

FitBit – Mom is always going, going, going so she’d probably get a real kick out of seeing just how far all that going is getting her.

Pearl Necklace – When it comes to gifts, Dogeared jewelry has you covered no matter the occasion.

Tory Burch Rollerball Set – This just screams “Happy Mother’s Day!’ to me! Plus, it’s always nice to try out fragrances in small amounts when giving as a gift as scent is so personal.

Quay Sunglasses – Just like me, Mom is a sunglasses junkie so it only seems fitting to feed the frenzy right?

MAC Lipstick – Everyone should have a MAC lipstick in their collection, it’s as simple as that.

Trinket Tray – This makes me laugh and reminds me of the SNL ladies and their infamous mom jeans skit. Too fun!

Ralph Lauren Robe – Mom deserves the luxury of nice robe. It’ll make everyday feel like a spa day.

Sugarfina Champagne Bears – Speaking of luxury…give Mom some champagne gummies to snack on!

Kate Spade Studs – These are just so classic, perfect for Mom!

Tory Burch Tote – For the splurge worthy, classy momma!

Personalized Moscow Mule Mug – I don’t know what it is about Moscow Mule mugs but everyone needs one!

Gift Guide: For Her


Hello, Magnolias.

It’s officially Gift Guide season! I’m particularly excited about this one considering that everything on it is promptly going onto my own wish list. This gift guide is full of equal parts fun & practical for every girl in your life from your best friend from junior high, your little sister, your sorority sister, your mother, your Aunt Sue, even your office neighbor.

  1. Southern Proper All Prep Vest – This vest just seems so dreamy & cozy that I couldn’t help but put it at the top of my gift guide. Reversible from cream colored fleece with a plaid pocket to quilted navy, this vest is perfect for the girl who loves options. Let’s face it, what girl doesn’t? That’s not even the best part though…a secret shot pouch and removable bottle opener in the pocket means this vest is ready for anything from camping to tailgating!
  2. Formula X Bottle Service Set – I imagine this gift being perfect for gift exchanges. From the sorority sister down the hall to the office secretary, what girl doesn’t love mini nail polishes? Even better when they’re mini Formula X polishes featuring everything from a shimmering red to a patent leather black, you really can’t go wrong. Top it off with possibly the cutest packaging ever and you have a gift that will be the talk of the party.
  3. Kate Spade Wooland Critters Intarsia Hat – I really can’t explain it but I LOVE this beanie! There’s just something about a jewel eyed fox peeking out of a hat that calls to my inner fashion maven.
  4. Kate Spade Micro Stripe Slim Battery Bank – The perfect gift for any iPhone user in your life because we all know that battery drain struggle. With this portable charger she’ll never have to deal with the annoying guy on the train again just because her getaway plan decided to die on the way home.
  5. Tory Burch York Key Case – There’s just something about a key case that seems so chic and sophisticated to me. No more fighting with the treacherous tangle of car keys, earbuds, and the 15 lipsticks at the bottom of her bag. Just pull out the key case, flip out the desired key, and voila. Every girl deserves that level of graceful.
  6. “Smiling Heart” Pillow – A combination of two of my favorite things, emojis and throw pillows. I’m willing to bet there’s a girl on your gift list who is with me on that. This cotton pillow would be the cutest addition to your best friend’s apartment or your cousin’s dorm room. Heck, I’d probably even gift this to my mom just to see it on the living room couch!
  7. ‘Yay!’ Stemless Wine Glass – Gold rimmed, confetti covered, exclaiming wine glasses? I’m all about that life! Pair this cutie with your BFF’s favorite vino for a gift that keeps on giving.
  8. Marley Lilly Monogrammed Tassel Bracelet – I cannot say enough how much I love this bracelet! First of all, it’s monogrammed! You can’t get more thoughtful or personal than a monogrammed gift. This particular piece has the classic look of a charm bracelet but gets an upgrade with double interlocking links and a trendy tassel element. One of my favorite parts is the 1 inch extender, so you never have to worry about the bracelet being too big or too small. Also, it comes in over 15 tassel color choices as well as the option of either silver or gold hardware. A great option for your sister, bestie, or even your mom!
