let’s hear it for the snail

in my post-undergraduate life, the reality of keeping in touch with the people i love becomes more and more difficult as we spread out across the country. one of my favorite ways to let people know i’m thinking about them is the simple gesture of writing a handwritten note. it takes about five minutes total (writing, addressing the envelope, putting on the stamp, sticking it in the mail) and it makes way more of an impact than a text. 

pretty in pink with Crane & Co.  classic, but peppy with the bright envelope and gold trim.

Inslee by Design is one of my favorite fashion illustrators online. lucky for us she makes ADORABLE notecards and stationery so you can send your friends a little bit of chic (or keep them for yourself!)

Lilly Pulitzer has some amazing paper products (i was obsessed with her agenda’s when i was in school). these marching elephants are super fun and you can personalize with your name in the yellow stripe if you want.

i like this monogrammed notecard by Kate Spade: it’s simple, appropriate for pretty much anyone, and still colorful. 

growing up in the green world of vermont, i was obviously attracted to the whimsical forest animals on this  Rifle Paper Co. card.

as you can see, the great thing is there are so many different kinds of note cards it’s easy to pick one out for any friend or family member (or not so easy if you’re like me and could spend hours getting distracted in the card section). besides… who doesn’t love getting something via snail mail?!
