ThePreppyU: Preppy Desk

Whether you’re a kindergartener or sophomore in college, you’re never too old for cute school supplies. While I don’t think university prepsters should still be touting Lisa Frank Folders and Hello Kitty pencils, I’ve rounded out the perfect list of preppy desk accessories that are fun and functional, yet still cute.

May Designs Agenda: These agendas can be customized to fit your planning needs without sacrificing cuteness. Choose from over a dozen fun, preppy designs like this lobster print.

Design Darling Monogram Pencil Holder: This container is the perfect size for holding your pencils without taking up too much of your desk space. And it has a monogram; need I say more?

I’m currently a sophomore at Boston University studying marketing and public relations. Originally from the sunny suburbs of Florida, I’ve fallen in love with the quintessential New England nautical lifestyle and write the life and style blog Big City Tyro to document my adventures as a college student, big city tyro, and preppy fashion enthusiast.
