Birthday Wishlist

2017 Birthday Wishlist

I'll be honest, this post is not for my reader(s).**  This post is for my husband.  Since starting this blog, I have not gotten a bad gift from him.  I may not have made a full-time job out of my blog; but at least I have not had to fake like a gift in years.

**I am assuming that due to my periodic absences there are like 3 people left reading this.  Thanks to those of you that are still here.  Also, it took my 4 times to spell "absences" correctly.   I am really losing my touch.

Ted Baker Garden Gems Cape Scarf
Daniel Wellington Watch
Rebecca Minkoff Mini Sofia (also love this one!)

Plaid Wrap and Faux Leather Leggings

For months I had been searching for the perfect cape wrap.  The only problem was that I did not know what I was searching for.  I spent a whole lot of time Googling "scarf with arm holes."  I had purchased blanket scarves and tried a bevy of wraps, but they were all missing those elusive arm holes.  A scarf or a wrap just wasn't doing the trick for me.  And by "trick", I mean staying on my body during any form of movement.  My other wraps looked great as long as I remained motionless.
I learned that vocabulary is the key to a fashion hunt.  
Luckily, New Jersey is experiencing one last blast of winter, so I've made some use out of my late season purchase.

Lilly Pulitzer January 2017 After Party Sale Haul

Lilly Pulitzer

I woke up early the morning of Lilly Pulitzer's After Party Sale to get in that virtual line.  I really need to learn that it's not necessary.  The line got stuck and I had to get to a meeting, so I wound up not being able to shop until lunchtime.  And I realize that my early morning scramble was in vein as there were plenty of sale goodies left with I finally got in.  AND...Lilly was a little tricky this year and was adding new items throughout the day!  So here is what I got...and what I call a whole lot of restraint.  I guess real restraint and responsibility would have been not to purchase anything and deposit that money into a savings account.  But, my savings account isn't florescent and patterned.


Isle Cardigan (Orig. $138, Paid $49)
Sally Fit & Flare Dress (Orig. $198, Paid $64) 
Reagan Zip-Up in Multi Roar of the Seas (Orig.$108, Paid $59)
