Take personal style literally with this season's emphasis on monogramming. It is now possible to slap your initials, name, or nickname on just about anything you desire. Share your narcissistic tendencies with pride with the following grown-up looks.
Start at the bottom with a pair of Jack Rogers Monogrammed Sandals. A cute way to ensure no one "borrows" your shoes is to have a pair of the beautiful leather flip-flops embellished with a diamond shaped monogram. Although a little pricey at over a hundred dollars, Jack Roger sandals, with or without personalization, are a beautiful addition to a stylish wardrobe.
Bad hair days will not be your only reason for popping on an initialed baseball cap. This cute topper with rhinestone embellishment is a good idea any day. This cap would also make a great Mother's Day gift.
Go old school and monogram your lunch bag. This time around you do not have to scribble your name on a brown paper bag. Instead have this sleek black high quality microfiber bag monogrammed and you will be toting your pb and j in style.
Carve your name in stone. A monogrammed aqua oval pendant necklace is not your typical piece of name jewelry. You can personalize your marble pendant with up to three script initials and then wear the unique coral beads with style. Let the necklace shine against a simple white eyelet sundress or a simple black tank top.
Share the love with charms. Instead of just showing off your initials, wear your loved ones initials as well. These adorable hand-stamped charms are worn on a simple chain in groups of two, three or more, or worn alone.
Mix it up, keep them guessing. Instead of wearing a traditional monogram, wear your nickname in script or layer a few different name necklaces in any combination such as; first name, last name, maiden name, middle name, nickname.
Finally, instead of wearing a rock band or random star's name on your shirt, wear your own. Design your own t-shirt on Zazzle or DIY with craft supplies. A casual t-shirt under a fitted blazer and skinny jeans is a fun way to embrace this trend in style.
