After Christmas Wish List

Typically for Christmas when people ask me what I would want, I give practical ideas. You know, items for the kitchen, new bed linens, and towels. They are easy for people to get you and they are items that aren't necessarily fun to buy yourself, but love to receive! So after Christmas, I go out and buy things that are completely self-indulgent. The items that I really wanted for the year just for me. So here is my After Christmas Shopping List. What's on yours?

Cape- I live in the midwest so of course I want an outerwear option other than a coat!
Fuzzy socks - I don't even wear slippers anymore because I love my fuzzy socks so much. They only problem is they loose fuzziness after a while so I always ask for more every Christmas.
Origins Ginger Souffle-My all-time favorite lotion in my all-time favorite scent. It smells like fresh baked cookies to me!
Leather dress- a perfect alternative to sequins for NYE. I really like the shape and price of this one, too.
OPI in Bubble Bath- OPI is my favorite brand and this color looks good with everything.
Peppermint bark -the ultimate stocking stuffer for me!
Wallet-This is such a beautiful color! 
Black and white plaid - I've been eyeing this one for a while! A girl has to have blanket scarf options!
Combat boots- It's practically tradition to get a new pair of boots each year. These have so many different styling options!
Coat-The color blocking is so pretty on this one!
Fur scarf- Every time I'm in Target this jumps into my basket and then I think better of it. If I don't get one I might have to buy it for myself though!

Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas! 


  1. That cape is gorgeous! I love the fur hood! Have a Merry Christmas Laura!

    Doused In Pink

  2. I do end up always doing a bit of shopping for myself after christmas - love the furry cowl - that would be both cozy and stylish!
    Chic on the Cheap

  3. That coat!! I'm in love! And I love this mentality - I do a bit of the same every year :)

  4. I am the same way! But some sales were so good that I took advantage a little early and picked up a few things today :-)

  5. I am holding out for some after Christmas shopping too :) Hopefully my little one will be cooperative and let me escape to the outlets for a bit this weekend!
    I am loving that leather dress. SO many styling possibilities!

  6. I can't wait for boxing day! Love the colour block coat and periwinkle Kate Spade wallet!

  7. I really love that coat! And, I am a fuzzy sock lover, too! I really need some new ones, too.


  8. A great coat, a windowpane blanket scarf, boots and fuzzy socks are on my list as well. I am loving both of those coats, the blanket scarf and that blush OPI. I need to try the Peppermint bark by Ghirardelli.

    Hope you had a Merry Christmas Laura. Also, happy third birthday to Claire.

    Kisses to you and Claire from Vivian and I.
