My Fall Wishlist

Maybe I'm being a bit of a premature scrooge this holiday season (can you believe it's around the corner?) but I've already told my friends and family that Kevin and I won't be participating in any gift exchanges this year.  A lot has changed since the year before: new home, baby on the way, and more expenses than ever.  While I'm normally pretty stressed during this season, I think it would be overwhelming to buy gifts for everyone this year. So instead of hoping someone else would buy me these things, here's my personal list of must haves that I'm (eventually) going to gift myself!


Okay, so this may even be next season eventually.  While this coat is a little on the expensive side, it's the most perfect thing I've ever seen.  I just need to have it in my life and the sooner the better.  I don't have much (if any) plaid pieces and this would be the perfect addition.


At this current stage in pregnancy peplum anything is out of the question.  That still doesn't stop me from wanting this striped top though!  It's actually been on my wishlist since last winter but I've never gotten around to purchasing it.  I think it would be perfect to wear with pants or even a cute pencil skirt.


 I love a great slouchy hat and this one is pretty much the cutest one I've ever seen.  I'm not one to carry an umbrella so wearing a cute beanie like this would be much easier for those rainy days ahead.  I really wish I could knit, I think this would be a fun project!


I don't care how many striped dresses are currently in my closet, there's always room for one more!  I love the polka dots combined with the stripes and I think it would be a great dress to pair with some colored tights.  It would be the perfect New Year's Eve outfit :)


I already have two other faux leather jackets and neither of them cost more than fifty dollars.  One of these days I want to buy the perfect fitted leather jacket, don't you think this one is lovely?

What's on your wishlist?  Am I the only crazy person who has one this early?  At this point I don't think I'll be treating myself to all these items but I guess that's what wishlists are for!

Happy Friday!




  1. Those would be on my wishlist too! (Especially the coat!)

  2. That first coat is really amazing.


  3. I don't think I'm doing gifts this year either. A leather jacket would be a fabulous piece to own...a girl can dream!

    No gift giving this year for us either. New home & wedding..all within a year leaves us with very little $$

  5. Wow that first coat is amazing! I can so see you rocking it!

  6. I always start my Christmas wishlist in the Summer, so you're good, girl! You for sure need another leather jacket. What does "too many" mean? And that coat! OMG its perfect for you. If you don't buy anything else, buy the coat!
