Preps love America. It’s in our blood. Some of us have ancestors who rode over on the Mayflower, and, even if yours didn’t come over until the 1900’s, I know you still bleed red, white, and blue. Today’s post focuses on some of my favorite patriotic preppy items – just in time for July 4th. I’d love to see pictures of you in your most patriotic outfits!

Today’s Delight of the Day is the Extra-Slim Fit Oxford with Madras from Brooks Brothers, $79.99. (They also sell this in Slim Fit, but this is definitely one of those shirts I’m going to borrow from the boys, so I used the Extra-Slim.) The madras elbow patches are to die for. I’m seriously obsessed. I’m hoping they get some more smalls in stock, because I NEED this shirt in order for my life to be complete 🙂

It’s that time of year again! Seniors are about to embark upon a journey in the real world. Sure the economy is in a bad place and both political parties care more about defeating the other than actually fixing anything, but it’s not all bad. At least they get gifts, right? By that logic, I think you owe it to your favorite grads to get them extra preppy presents to help them conquer the work place or grad school. So here are some of my favorite picks, ranging from under $25 to $250.

$25 and Under
If you’re graduating too, this category is for you. Your friends understand that you’re dealing with student loans and finding a job, so they don’t expect you to spend a lot of money. Additionally, this is a good idea if the grad is your cousin, your boyfriend’s/girlfriend’s sibling,etc. This category is also really good if you want to mix and match several options! 

Cafe Mug from Lilly Pulitzer, $10

Seersucker Tugs, $12

Monogram Scarf from Marley Lilly, $17.99

Brass Anchor Key Fob from Rugby, $24.50

Lulu Cuff from Bridier Baubles, $25

Starboard Bangle from Swell Caroline, $25

$55 and Under

This is your middle of the range category – containing everything from a fun key chain to a new iPhone case. Again, you can definitely mix and match this with one of the less expensive options for above.

The Social Primer for Brooks Brothers Key Fob, $34.50

Phone Cases from Preppy Princess, $52

Tervis Tumbler Set from Vineyard Vines, $55

Stripe Belt from Rugby, $59.50

$100 and Under

This price range is perfect for your significant other, your brother, sister, or even your best friend. Your grad won’t be able to spoil herself as much as she’s used to, so why not do it for her?

Acrylic Monogram Necklace, $58-78

Social Primer Reversible Bowtie from Brooks Brothers, $65

Turnlock Skinny Bracelet from Marc Jacobs, $68

Striped Logo Stud Earrings from Tory Burch, $68*
(*This is an updated link, as the earrings sold out on Shopbop since this morning! Better order them before they’re gone!)

Monogram Necklace, $69.99

Men’s Yacht Club Canoe Boat Shoe from Cole Haan, $74

Seersucker Sperrys, $75

Seersucker Clutch from Lilly Pulitzer, $88

Kappa Kappa Gamma Tote from Vineyard Vines, $95
(You can get this in any sorority print or even in a lot of school’s prints. I still buy all kinds of Kappa stuff even though I graduated, so don’t worry about that. Plus, the school option is great if they’re going to grad school!)

$250 and Under

This category is top of the line. As a recent grad myself, I would have loved one of these gifts from my grandparents or parents. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t have expected it, but I would have loved it!

Folding Wayfarers (RB 4105) from Ray-Ban
(I personally own these, and I LOVE them. They are the best sunglasses I’ve ever owned!)

Robinson Zip Wallet from Tory Burch, $195

Exum Wedge Sandals from Jack Rogers, $198

Oversized Rose Gold Watch from Michael Kors, $250
