My Favorite Things...AKA My Christmas List!

christmas wish list

1/ Tory Burch Robinson Wallet: I never buy myself stuff like this, so it's a perfect gift for Christmas! I love my Hobo wallet, but it's time for an upgrade. I want a bold color like this pop of blue!
2/ Spode Christmas China: I'm 30 now, so it's time to start collecting holiday china, right?? This pattern is simple, timeless, and still affordable enough to actually use...so pretty for fancy dinners, too.
3/ Red Pajamas via Gap: One cannot ever have too many pajama sets...let's face it, we call this "work wear" in our home, and these look oh so comfy and cute!
4/ Lands End Polka Dot Canvas Shopper Bag: I'm a bag hoarder...I know it, but I don't care. This one is practical enough to carry anything and everything I tote around on a daily basis. And of course, anything that can be monogrammed is A-OK in my book.
5/ Gianni Bini Boots: this is my go-to brand for boots. They never fail me, the price is right, and they hold up well! Plus, I can wear them with skinnies OR bootcut jeans, too!
6/ Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb Perfume: I only wear perfume in the winter, as I tend to stick to body mist during spring and summer, but I love the way this scent is feminine and girly, but still classic.
7/ New Address Stamp: We have moved, hence I need a new address stamp! The stationery guru over here doesn't want her mail to look lonely without one. Plus, it's much faster than having to write your address all the time. This is a MUST!
8/ Anthropologie Apron: I love me a pretty apron. Something about putting one on gets me "better acquainted" with the kitchen when I am ready to whip out dinner or bake a treat for us to enjoy! Anthropologie always has the best ones!!

It's funny to see how my Christmas list used to be fanciful things and now it's mostly things I REALLY want and/or need. Who am I and when did I get to be so practical? ;)

  2. I have been on the hunt for cute flat boots, and I LOVE these! I've never worn GB shoes before, but I think I am going to have to give these a try!

    Also- I was in our Homegoods last Saturday and they had a BUNCH of Christmas Spode! Might be a good place to look for the "extras" in this pattern!

  11. I love everything on your list! And I especially LOVE the Lands End bag -- I'm trying to find something big enough to carry all our stuff that's not a diaper bag.

  12. I love that Spode pattern. My mother-in-law uses it during the holidays and it's so timeless. We have found her a lot of the pieces at TJMaxx and Home Goods over the years!

  16. The next time I'm at the mall I need to check out that Flowerbomb perfume. I have 2 go-to perfumes and normally don't switch it up but I've heard SO many people rave about that one!

  17. Great list! And an excellent reminder that I don't have an address stamp with our new(ish) address. OOPS. My hand is going to cramp addressing our Christmas cards!

  18. My mom started me my own collection of Spode Christmas china a few years ago. I LOVE it! She has her own set too so we can borrow each other's serving pieces, plates, etc. And it is timeless!! You can also find pieces at Stein Mart and TJ Maxx/Marshalls a lot.
