wishlisting (again)

In case you haven’t noticed, the holidays are just around the corner. As I think I’ve mentioned before, my birthday happens to fall on December 24th, so this time of year is particularly exciting for me. Because I have two gift-giving occasions on two consecutive days, my family has already started requesting gift ideas. Of course, I’m happy to oblige 🙂 Here’s the list I’ve compiled (so far):


  • striped turtleneck t-shirt: Truth be told, I spent much of my childhood absolutely hating turtlenecks; we had way too many family photos of my sisters and me in matching ones. (*shudder*) Over the past year or so, I’ve come around on my feelings toward turtlenecks, however–they can be such versatile layering pieces during the winter. Plus, I never met a stripe I didn’t like!
  • alternating clusters necklace: Although I have a decent number of necklaces in my jewelry collection, I really don’t have much in the way of sparkle. I really like this necklace from JCF, and even better, there’s a set of coordinating earrings 🙂
  • classic metro watch: As you might have surmised by now, the only piece of jewelry I really wear consistently is a watch. Bearing that in mind, I like to invest a bit more in my watch purchases. I like the mother of pearl face on this Kate Spade one, and I feel like it’s classic enough style that I could wear it for many years to come.
  • leopard clutch: Technically, I already own a leopard clutch that I got second-hand a while back. It functions fine, but it’s not made from quality materials, and the hardware is quite scuffed up. I’d like to upgrade to this leather calf-hair version.
  • blackwatch plaid scarf: I’m having a bit of a moment with blackwatch plaid these days. I already own a blazer and a pair of pants in the pattern, so naturally a scarf is next in line. Plus, I like the option of monogramming on this Lands’ End option.
  • red cardigan: This sweater would be another replacement item. I already own a red cardigan, but again, it was a second-hand purchase via ThredUp (<–get $20 off your first order!). It functioned fine for the first two years I owned it, but it’s now starting to pill. The Clare cardigan has always served me well in the past, so I figured this would be a quality replacement.

What are you eyeing this holiday season?

  1. I just got that turtleneck in the mail (though the JCF version) and it was unfortunately not a winner. I thought it would be stretchy but it was not. (wahn wahn) Love your other wishlist items, especially that Kate Spade watch. Sooo pretty.


    • Ah, bummer about the turtleneck. I probably would have opted for the JCF version if they had had a black stripe on white version (I think they have one that white stripes on black, if that makes sense). Either way, the J.Crew one is backordered now, so I’m hoping that Old Navy will come out with a cheapie option in the coming months…
