Birthday Wishlist

I’ve had a few thoughtful family members and friends ask what I’d like for my upcoming birthday this Sunday. Usually, I am terrible at figuring out what I want, but this year, I actually have a few items on my wish list. Around the holidays, I’ll usually post gift guides and wish lists and my friends always tell me how helpful they are because they know exactly what to get me! I kind of wish my husband would start making wish lists because I always have a hard time thinking of what to get him.
Beyond anything material, I am so grateful to have the most incredible husband and best friend in Fabian, a wonderful family, great friends, my sweet puppy son, Tate, and of course, this blog and all of my fabulous readers. I feel like I really am living “La Dolce Vita”!

{Tory Burch Amanda Hobo: I need a stylish, versatile everyday black bag and this one fits the bill. I can wear it on my arm, shoulder, or across my body with the long strap. Love it!}
Factory retro frame clutch

Since it’s from J.Crew’s factory store, it’s a pretty great deal, too!}
{J.Crew Classic Pavé Bracelet: I’ve had my eye on this beauty for over a year now and never got around to getting it after it was on backorder for a long time around last Christmas. This is the type of piece I could see myself wearing everyday. Easy, versatile, and glamorous.}
{Custom Monogram Wood Stamp: Like any good Southern girl, I’m a sucker for a lovely monogram! I love this stamp and especially love the black and gold combination, but I’m guessing you’re not surprised!}

{The Big Book of Chic by Miles Redd: If Miles’ new design tome is as magical as his work, I am in! I can’t wait to get my hands on this book.}

{Grace: A Memoir: I am so looking forward to Grace Coddington’s memoir. The Vogue editor is such an enormous inspiration.}
{A Weekend Getaway: All I really wanted for my birthday this year was to go to New York or Los Angeles for a few days. I’ve been to New York several times, but I’ve never experienced autumn there and I’m dying to. I try to get out to the West Coast, particularly L.A. anytime I can because I absolutely love it there. I love both cities so much and have felt like I’ve been in a bit of a rut lately and could use a change of scenery, even if it’s just for a few days. Unfortunately, with a hectic work schedule and with Fabian’s mom currently traveling in Argentina and unavailable to dogsit Tate, it looks like my much needed getaway will have to wait for a while. Sadly, with Sandy’s aftermath, it’s probably best that we won’t be heading to New York this week. My heart goes out to everyone who was affected by the storm.}

  1. I have to say I share the same wish – I’ve always wanted to see NYC in the fall! I know it’s amazing. And yes, I too hope everyone recovers quickly from Sandy.

    Happy Birthday!
