Even though I do share/advertise to my family and friends my preferred gift options I also have a "behind-the-scenes" list of items I plan on buying during the post-Christmas sales with any money I may have been gifted in lieu of a present. FYI: money is always a good gift AND let's one put an exact value on a relationship :). Anyway here are some items I'm scoping out for December 26th-January 1st.
The Paperback from Moop
I'm in need of new day-bag for work. My current carryall is starting to breakdown. It needs to be big enough for my lunch, books, make-up case, and a pair of heels now that we're in Winter and boots are a must for the daily commute. At $169 this is a bit more than I've spent in the past, but if it can hold up for more than a year it'll be worth it. Plus, with my family $100 is the gift-giving ceiling.
Frock from Mimu Maxi
You may recall my love of Mimu Maxi's skirt leggings from this post. I'm also eyeing this simple-chic dress, which at $56 is very reasonable and I can see this becoming a go-to piece during the dark days of winter when I want to be comfortable, yet still polished.
Sweatpants from Anthropologie
These sweatpants are kind of insane at $98, as with the dress above, they could easily become a default pair of pants during the cold months to come, while also still be chic and a little "dressy" as my mother would say. OMG, outfitting epiphany!!! Pair the dress with the sweatpants for evenings out on the town!!!! Right, that would no only be a sophisticated as f*ck outfit, but also super-warm and comfy. I am and outfitting genius!
Also legwarmers, definitely in the market for a couple of new pairs.
You may recall how I rocked a pair last spring here.
So that's my current post-holiday shopping list, day-bag, smock dress, velvety sweatpants, and legwarmers--sounds like I'll be having a chic and cozy winter.
