Normally on Wednesdays, I try to post weekly or bi-weekly themed-wishlists. But, with Christmas being just 2-days away I thought it would be fun to post my holiday wishlist instead. This year, I didn't purchase any gifts and don't plan on exchanging ANYTHING. I haven't even treated myself. I'm in the Christmas spirit -- but my wallet isn't. I like to think that one day, I'll be able to purchase anything I want -- when I want. But till, then here are 12 (plus one for good luck) of the goodies I covet:
Come away with me. Today we escape to the Maldives. A location that has been on my travel wish list for way too long. The Maldives are a group of 1190 coral islands and are considered among the most romantic places in the world. Famed for it's rare underwater beauty, it's the perfect place for snorkelers, nature lovers and those who are good at just being lazy on vacation. Like me.
It's the 1st day of December ... already! This means holiday cheer and events will be in full swing. Every year, the perfect holiday dress is born. There are two that I spotted that made my heart go thumpity-thump. The first is this Alcee dress on Anthropologie's website. It's sweet and perfect for a more classic affair. It's also simple yet makes a statement with it's origami-like flower situated at the waistband and shimmery pattern dotted along the skirt.
The second is this Island Princess Dress from French Connection. Perfect for a more jazzy affair, like a New Year's Eve party @ the Hudson, rubbing elbows with chic New Yorkers. Picture it. Champagne bubbles tickling your nose as you mingle with other party guests in this sassy number.
Though the price points of the two dresses aren't devastating, I'm in no position to splurge at this point, so I'll have to pass ☹. But, I've come across some other options that will be as light on your wallet as you'll be on your feet at that next holiday soiree!:
I consider myself a chic girl who celebrates the little things. I'm obsessed with shoes, books, fashion, traveling, music and photography.
I see magic in champagne, cupcakes, ladybugs and freckles.
I believe that most of life's disappointments can be cured with a great cup of tea and delicious novel. Laughter is my best friend. Pretty things make my heart skip a beat.
I'm a wife, daughter, sister and friend. But most importantly, I try to live everyday like it's my birthday.
