It may come as a surprise to you, but I love clothes. Shocking, I know! But really, I went through a phase of about 5 years where I was basically pregnant or breastfeeding (read the post here) and as much as I love my babies and what my body did, I needed a wardrobe overhaul. And it is still happening. Here are some things that are on my Christmas list that I am SUPER excited about! Husband, are you reading?..
Wool Turtleneck So part of my mission with redoing my wardrobe was to mature it in the process. Turtlenecks aren’t something that was in my closet previously, but I can totally picture this paired with a vest and my beloved Hunter boots!
Necklace I am obsessed with this necklace! My daily jewelry tends to be more dainty and on the delicate side. This one is so cute and different!
Cashmere Sweater On trend with the updating my wardrobe trend, this is high on the list. Never have I ever invested in cashmere before! I love anything J Crew, so I am excited to add this to my closet.
Ruffle Front Plaid Shirt This is a fun spin on a normal plaid button up! The little ruffle gives it the cutest feminine edge. And the plaid is perfect!
Ripped Knee Jeans I invested in my first pair of high waisted jeans since my horseback riding days last week. You can say I am fully on board for this trend! These ripped knees are super cute too.
Let’s be real here. Christmastime is a wonderful time of year for giving, but that also means receiving, right? I figured I would share what is on my wish list (cough Marcus cough) and maybe provide some inspiration for gift giving for the woman/friend in your life. Here’s what’s on my Amazon list this year!

I am OBSESSED with my [eafl id=722 name=”echo” text=”Echo”]. Well, it’s actually Marcus’ Echo he got for Christmas last year… But seriously people, you need this! It’s basically a personal assistant. I stream music all day, add items to my shopping list, and check the weather. You need this, therefore you need the [eafl id=721 name=”echo dot” text=”Echo Dot”]. That way you can do all of the above in any room of your house! Done. Order it.
I like to wear taller socks in the winter when I am around the house. These [eafl id=723 name=”socks” text=”socks”] are perfect! Great stocking stuffer too. Great fit and super cute!
This [eafl id=724 name=”DW watch” text=”watch”]. Oh how I have lusted after it for so long. If your girl is a fashion enthusiast, she will love this. Guaranteed. Also comes in a [eafl id=725 name=”mens DW watch” text=”watch”] I bought for Marcus last Christmas! He wears his all the time, so I promise it would be a big hit.
Have you followed Young House Love over the years? I was an avid follower from (almost) the very beginning. If you like to decorate your home, this [eafl id=666 name=”YHL book” text=”book”] is a great tool to guide you!
These [eafl id=728 name=”sneakers” text=”sneakers”] are adorable. Lately I’ve been into the really simple sneaker look. If your girl works out (or just loves the Athleisure trend) then these are a great buy!
Also trending with athletic gear are mesh [eafl id=729 name=”leggings” text=”leggings”]. These are sooooo adorable! Cute and great ventilation. Ha!
My mom gifted me my [eafl id=731 name=”hunter boots” text=”Hunter boots”] for my birthday this year and I wear them more then I thought I would! Love. So naturally, I need a pair of [eafl id=730 name=”boot socks” text=”boot socks”] to accompany them. Please and thank you.
[eafl id=732 name=”blanket scarff” text=”Blanket scarves”] are also new the past couple years. And while it is like wearing a blanket on your neck (my husband nicely reminded me when I wore it last week), who will be laughing when you are snuggly warm and they aren’t?! That’s right. Add to the cart.
I like to wear a thin but warm jacket when I go to the gym in the morning. The one I have I love, but is showing it’s age. [eafl id=733 name=”puffer” text=”This”] is a really cute option! Plus a hood because snow. It’s coming.
I am a bit of a winter accessory hoarder. Do I really need [eafl id=719 name=”pom pom hat” text=”this”] hat too? Yes.
I thought for most of my life that I was a pancake lover. Earlier this year I made waffles instead of my normal pancakes… How could I have been so wrong? Waffles are life. I have a thin waffle maker, but I need to [eafl id=734 name=”belgian waffle maker” text=”get this”] and make big Belgian waffles. Even better!
Charcuterie is my weakness. I could eat my weight in a cheese plate for every meal and be totally ok with it. (My waistline, however, would not be.) [eafl id=735 name=”cheese board” text=”This”] one is really cute! Perfect for holiday parties.
Lace extenders have been around for a bit now. I am not sure how I don’t own one yet? [eafl id=736 name=”lace extender” text=”This”] would be really cute thrown under a simple sweater to dress it up a little bit, or to add length to a shirt to make it acceptable over leggings. Because we all know my [eafl id=737 name=”leggings” text=”leggings”] addiction….
Are you paying attention, boyfriends and husbands? Hopefully this provides some inspiration. Let me know what you think and bought! And make sure to report back and tell me how much she loves it.
