Can you believe that it is only 21 days until winter and just 25 until Christmas? Seriously, where does the time go? Oh wait, that’s write, my dissertation.
Anyways, as the holidays approach it is time to start thinking about gifts! What to give and what to put on your own wish list. With each new season I like to compile a wish list. This helps me prioritize what I want, what I might actually need, and what will work with what I already own.
My winter wish list is always the smallest becuase, well, I live in Florida. But, I travel enough to have a little fun with winter clothing. That said, I do try to keep my winter wish list practical for Florida. Except for this gorgeous camel coat. Two winters ago I purchased a gorgeous cashmere and wool coat in Florence. Although not trendy or a fun statement piece (which I am usually a sucker for), this timeless coat has become one of my all time favorite purchases and I wear it constantly each winter. I promised myself that if I found a great camel coat, I would make a similar investment. This Club Monaco coat fit the bill (and FYI all their coats are currently 30% off!). Speaking of Club Monaco, they are killing it lately with the voluminous sweaters. It is tough to pick just one, but this ruffled burgundy number is definitely my favorite.
I am also obsessed with this floral appliqué Rebecca Minkoff bag. I mean look at those gorgeous colors and pretty little flowers! It was love at first sight and will easily transition into spring (there is another cute version here).
Also on my wish list are dolly socks. If you have not noticed, I’ve really been into this look lately. It is the perfect combination of cute and practical. I plan to wear my new dolly socks with these gorgeous (and ridiculously well-priced) velvet Mary Jane’s. I scored them from Macy’s during Cyber Monday for $44! Other winter accessories on my radar are this sweet pink and green plaid J.Crew scarf and leather and cashmere tech gloves (such a great gift idea!).
Speaking of style meeting function, I am dying to try Kate Spade’s new wearable tech. They now have a smart watch and bangle that tracks your steps and allows you to set and monitor fitness goals. The last item on my list is something that I have needed for a while now and, for some reason, have not purchased! I love this small (and pink) dual voltage travel blowdryer by T3. A great travel blowdryer is the perfect gift for the wanderluster in your life.
What is on your winter wish list?
