Gift Guide: What’s On My Christmas List – Fashion

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.

Pom pom hat Because yes, I need another hat.

Wubby Fleece Pullover Yes, another pullover. Each serves a different purpose, OK? The charcoal in this is perfect! According to the size chart, make sure you size up.

Sunglasses I have a pair of “winter sunglasses” in navy (yes, there is such a thing in my book) but I would love to add a black pair to my collection! I love this brand.

Leggings I know you’ve heard me talk about my undying love for Zella athletic wear! (Favorite leggings, favorite workout capris) I would love a long pair for outdoor winter running, and the cutouts on these are perfect!

So men, if you are reading, snoop in your lady’s closet and order her a few things on this list in her size! I love surprises, and she will be so touched with your thoughtfulness 😉

Great (& Inexpensive!) Blanket Scarf Roundup

Blanket scarves are something that initially overwhelmed me, until I tried it out for myself.  Once I figured out how to wear them, they quickly became one of my favorite cold weather accessories! For someone who runs cold but also has to chase around (aka keep from committing suicide) three toddlers, sometimes heavy layers aren’t ideal. Blanket scarves are a great way to add some texture and color to an outfit!

There are a lot of tutorials to show you how to wrap them if it is a new item for you (see here and here – also total sidenote, but these girls are also great ones to follow!). Most of these are under $10 and I own (and love!) one of them! Now to choose which one to add to my collection…

Top Left This looks so cozy! And the colors could be tied into so many outfits.

Top Center I love the colors on this! The maroon is perfect for fall/winter wardrobes.

Top Right Sometimes simple is better! I love the texture on this and this is a perfect neutral.

Middle Left This is the one I have and love and wear all the time!

Middle Center I reeeally love this one! I love the camel and black combo.

Middle Right This is really similar to another blanket scarf that I have and wear all the time! The pale ocean blue is gorgeous.

Lower Left Another good, simple scarf! This would be so great with a holiday outfit. Great texture!

Lower Center No, this one I need! The colors in this are amazing!

Lower Right OK. This one. I definitely need this one. A plaid doesn’t get much better than this!
