Dear Graduation Fairy...

Happy May!! So, I happen to be graduating... Have I mentioned that recently?! Anyways, I thought instead of doing a graduation gift guide, I'd do a list of what I'd like to receive for graduation.
I love this print and have yet to own a Murfee so it is about time!


This is another closet staple that I don't own. It definitely needs to get into my wardrobe. Plus, I just love how BAH of Panache monogrammed hers! What a perfect idea. Question about these: Should I get a small or medium? I've never even tried one on and can't decide if I want it fitted or roomy-- how do you wear yours? Most of my half zip fleeces I like roomy.
Le sigh.  I know I would break this within days of wearing it... But it's so pretty.
MacBook Pro... 13" or 15" or 17"?!
This is not even a want at this point, it's a need. I won't even bring up "the computer that shall not be named", cough DELL cough, because it is ready to bite-the-dust. Finally. I've Tweeted/blogged/etc. about how much I hate my Dell. It literally is the worst computer I've ever owned. But still, I consider myself lucky and am thankful to have a computer (thanks Mom and Dad!). I'm ready for the Mac world. The only thing is I am wondering which size I should get; 13", 15", or 17"? I am leaning towards the 15" because I feel that the 17" will be too large to fit in some of my tote bags and then the 13" will be a little smaller than I'd like. Feel free to weigh-in under the comments!

I'm a big girl now! No, not the pull-ups commercial, but really, after my disastrous experience with Gallery Leather, I think it's time I get my hands on this gem.
 Sheridan French Clutch
I love that this is such a vibrant blue hue. It is a perfect match for a tan, little white shift, gold Jacks, and a gold cocktail ring.
But really... I tried to score a clic clac on Rue La La a few weeks ago, but they were sold out before I could snatch one.  
Alright, I am going to stop now before I get a phone call from my parents asking me if I think I'm getting a "job" as a socialite upon graduation...Have a fabulous day!
Yours, 
sCe

I have that murfee, always always get compliments on it and I also am in love with my Shep Shirt. Hope your wishes come true! Congratulations on your graduation :-)

I love my 13" macbook pro! For me its the prefect size. I would go into an apple store to look at sizes. I think the 13" might be bigger than you think. Congrats! What fun gift ideas!

I love everything on your list. I have a Vineyard Vines Shep shirt, and I got it in a size up. It is actually a little too roomy for my liking, but it depends on what you're planning on wearing under it!

Haley said...

These are all such great choices! I definitely wouldn't mind adding any and all to my day to day use! Happy Graduation and congrats!

If you get the Shep shirt can you post a review? I've wanted one for a while, but I also don't know whether to get a small or medium.

Christine said...

MacBook Pros are just about perfect in every sense (love mine) - this should definitely be considered a need!

I love my VV Shep shirt. I have it in a small and typically I'm a XS in tops so I would suggest going up one size.

Love my murfee scarves-that print is next on my list too! I have the shep shirt in a medium and I normally wear a small-I just love the cozy fit! I LOVE my mac! seriously it is my child!! You need one! I have a 13 inch and am very happy with that size. And for graduating you totally deserve a little orange box! Congrats on all your accomplishments!

Being the proud owner of five Shep Shirts, I must say they may be my favorite thing in my closet. I seriously think I could wear them every day! Also, I have the 17" MacBook Pro and I absolutely love it! The size and quality of the screen cannot be beat! Congratulations on Graduating!

Congratulations on graduating! I would go with the 13" Mac Book pro! i LOVE mine and it fits in all my totes! I had a HP and hated it, so I was so happy when my Dad bought me my Mac. Best investment EVER!! Go to Apple and check them out as far as size wise.

Thanks for the mention! I wear a small in VV tanks/polos, but opted for a medium in the Shep Shirt :)

My Macbook is a 13" and I love it! I also got my shep shirt before they started making them for women so mine is a men's small - it's kind of roomy and I think if I got one again I'd go with a women's small. Good luck with getting the orange box :)

I had a 15" Macbook Pro and when that finally died I sized down to a 13". If I had to go buy a new computer tomorrow I would get another 13". In my opinion, that little extra bit of screen is not a big enough difference to warrant the extra cost or weight to carry around. Congrats!

Grace said...

I really want a Shep Shirt and Murfee, too! And I don't think you can ever go wrong with Hermes!

kp said...

Hi there..go with the 13". I bought mine in December and it is the perfect size. :) kristin pearce

I love your list. Congrats and good luck on your next chapter!

Emily said...

I have the shep shirt and they fit a little on the smaller size- so I would go up a size for comfort!

I have the 13" and it is PERFECT. Not too small by any means! I love that it fits in all of my totes perfectly (even in the laptop sleeve!)

Hannah said...

Perfect graduation items! I'm graduating (high school) in June and I love everything you posted!

Mari said...

Congrats! I just found your blog and I love it! I have a '15 inch Macbook Pro and I love it. I hope you haven't already bought a Mac because they just came out with new MacBook Pros a week or so ago. The new ones are even cooler.
