Gifts for Em

15 December 2014

We finished up our Christmas shopping for one side of the family this weekend, and so far have been pretty good about not buying things for ourselves in the process. Still, there are a few things I’m wishing for this year, and I thought I’d share them, as it’s become a bit of a tradition!


A. We bought a king size bed and new sheets a month or so ago, but are still using an old blanket. I’d love to upgrade to this quilt!
B. I’ve only ever asked someone what jeans she was wearing once, and these were the answer. These might be at the top of my list this year.
C. We cook at home six nights out of seven. These three cookbooks come highly recommended by friends and look like they’d keep us busy!
D. I bought these pumps for my sister as a birthday gift, then borrowed them, and now I want my own pair.
E. Still haven’t replaced my Toms – hoping someone else will do it for me! :)
F. Love the cognac color of these classic flats
G. Sigh – I know this scarf is sold out, but maybe they’ll restock it? It’s back in stock!! The J.Crew fairies read my blog! :)

What’s on the top of your wish list this year?

I wore designer jeans from outlets in high school, when it was the “cool thing”.. but pretty soon got over that (and the pink stitching on the back pockets.. yikes!) Since then I had loved the modern skinny jean from Loft, especially because I would always get them at least 40% off.. so less than $40. Last month I was at Jcrew during a 30% off sale and tried on the exact toothpick jeans you linked to, and fell in love. It’s a dramatic difference wearing them and not a more inexpensive pair. I later went back and grabbed a black pair too… They’re my new favorites! Fingers crossed Santa will put them under your tree! XO

We have the pitch stitch quilt and shams from pb and the quilt has held up well but the shams have not. We love them so we just rebought them in euro shams. I’m hoping since they won’t be used they will hold up better!!

Those black pointy pumps are effortlessly chic. Added to my list!
