december. the. list.

Christmas is only a week away and there’s still so much left to do.  Shopping, gift wrapping, pom-pom making, decorating cookies...the neverending list goes on.  Just as I wanted to push pause during the week of Thanksgiving, I’m really wishing that time could freeze now.  This is my favorite time of the year and, unfortunately, it’s also the most fleeting.        

It’s a tad late (we’re halfway through December already!), but here’s my second installment of “the. list.”  If you remember from last month, this is just a compilation of some items that I currently have my eye on.  As it is the holiday season, don’t be surprised if you see a few stocking stuffers mixed in!

december. the. list.

1. Wool-Felt Duffle Coat (Burberry Brit):  Two things that I love: Burberry and toggles.  Enough said.    
2. Epoca Cardigan (Anthropologie):  Though emerald may no longer be “the color of the year” come January, that doesn’t change how I feel about this cardigan one bit.  It’s festive and oh-so-perfect for every holiday function ahead.
3. Bayard Blouse (Aritzia):  I don’t care what anyone says, I’m still having a major peplum moment. I have a feeling this blouse from Aritzia is one that I would wear again...and again! (Not to mention that shade of beige/pale pink  gorgeous is an understatement.)
4. Scallop Ring (Kate Spade):  Oh scallop, oh my!  Right behind bows, scallops are quickly becoming a close second-favorite of mine.  
5. Eat Cake For Breakfast Mug (Kate Spade):  Besides the fact that this is pretty much my life philosophy, I wouldn’t mind having one more mug to sip tea from.     
6. Matilde Flat Boot (Loeffler Randall):  It’s about time (actually, waaay past time!) that I invest in a nice pair of boots.  Available in brown or black, these Loeffler Randall beauties would be the perfect addition to my winter wardrobe. 
7. FaLaLa Set (Twistband):  I swear by Twistband’s hair ties.  They don’t dent or damage your hair and this holiday-inspired set is too cute.
8. Color-Stripe Trouser Socks (J.Crew):  Anyone who says that socks make a bad gift is surely mistaken.  Here’s to hoping that Santa brings me at least a few new playful pairs on the 25th! 
9. 2 Park Avenue Lacey (Kate Spade):  If I can’t have the beau bag, then gosh darn it, I’ll just have to get the next best thing.  Enter in Kate Spade’s “2 Park Avenue Lacey Wallet” in macchiato/black.  Did I mention it comes complete with a bow? 
10. Crepe Boatneck Dress (J.Crew):  Ironically enough, I hate the color red...but I have an affection for dresses with a drop-waist silhouette. #gofigure Although this J.Crew boatneck dress also comes in black, the bright red is just speaking to me (blame it on the holidays, I guess!).
11. Nail Polish Set (Kate Spade):  What better way to start off the new year than with a fresh mani?  I call dibs on the sparkly pink polish appropriately titled, “All That Glitters.”  
12. Idiom Pencils (Kate Spade):  I spotted these “Idiom Pencils” at a local stationery store and boy are they cute.  With witty expressions like, “so well composed” and “55 words per minute,” writer’s block ain’t got nothing on me! 

What’s on your Christmas wish list?
