Dorm Room Shopping

So as you've hopefully already noticed, dorm room shopping and decorating is one of my favorite things in the entire world! And with July quickly approaching, stores like Target, PB Teen, and others are starting to gear up for College 2012! So this post is dedicated to some of my favorite stores for some awesome dorm room furnishings! Check them all out, seriously, you won't regret it!

1. Dormify

There is so much to love from Dormify. They are modern, fresh, and fun! If you haven't checked them out yet, definitely do! I know that I am completely in love with so many of their products, expecially their wall art and bedding!

Love the Not-So-Lonely Hearts Collection! The yellow, gray, white, and brown look is just so fresh and modern for a drab looking dorm room! It's girly without being too much, and it just looks so comfy. Definitely a must in my book if you love yellow!

The California Girl Collection from Dormify is so fun and so current! I love the diamond ikat pattern of the bedding, as well as the fun throw pillows! Layering your dorm bed is one of the major differences between a comforting space and a temporary living arrangement. And really, even though it is technically temporary, you don't want to live that way.

Dormify's Spring Fling collection is the pink lover's dream! The bright pink chevron is seriously adorable and so trendy right now! And I love the bright green throw pillow.

Don't even get me started on my love for the Manifesto poster. It's currently out of stock and I seriously just screamed! I am planning getting one for my room in my sorority house this fall, so hopefully they get more soon. Doesn't this poster just sum everything up perfectly? It's so great to live by and will seriously add some cool graphic design to any dorm wall.

Moving away from Dormify, I just need to discuss my love for Vera Bradley and the new dorm collection coming out this week! My friend and I are going to be there at 8 am on Thursday for the opening (she in hopes of the adorable new bedding and little poor me along for the ride--and maybe some towels and notebooks haha).

It seems like I have waited my entire life for Vera to finally do dorm rooms. I literally screamed when I found out that this would be the year.

The above print is definitely my favorite out of the three and looks so welcoming. I can see any college girl getting much needed sleep in a bed that cute. The collection also includes rugs, ribbon boards, throw blankets, laundry bags, shower caddies, and the towels that I have my eye on:

Vera Bradley was already my favorite place to shop for back to college (highlighters, planners, pens, notebooks, and folders!!), but with their new dorm collection I'm sure that girls all over the nation will be going crazy with their campus staple prints!

Always a sorority girl staple, the bedding I've found by Lilly is drool inducing. It is so bright, cheery, and fully Lilly.

Lilly Pulitzer, besides being famous for her pretty dresses, also has quite the massive following for her agendas. This will be the first year I'm going to abandon Vera Bradley (I feel like a traitor) and becoming a Lilly girl in the planner department.

So many to choose from! But I so can't wait to have my first Lilly agenda to write down all my important dates!

I'll follow up a little later with some of Target's awesome dorm window shopping I did, but so far I can definitely say the College 2012 shopping is bright, fun, and something I definitely look forward to!
