What I'm Loving Wednesday {Birthday Wishlist}

Hey y'all,

Since it is Wednesday I thought I would share some of the things I am loving this week, including the fact that there is snow on the ground here in NC! I am bundled up here at work but for those of you out there I hope you are all safe and warm as snow can be very dangerous here in the South with very little experience driving in it. STAY SAFE! 

Now on a happier note, less than 48 hours until my birthday! The blessing and the curse of a January birthday is that you are so close to Christmas. I love that my left over Christmas list serves as a guide for my birthday wishlist, but I then go months until any big holidays. I mean, except for my Easter basket I wait 11 months before gifts come around. This year it was hard to think of things. My mom and I typically go shopping as my gift and since I am in the process of losing weight, I do not really want to shop for clothes until I reach my healthy, goal weight but we have a while until that. So, I have compiled a few things I am hoping to get but it is always a surprise.

24 birthday wishlist

1. This bookworm always accepts giftcard to bookstores. I don't have any books in particular I am searching for and I have a lot on my Nook I need to get through, but I will never turn down books as gifts.
2. I love my Vera Bradley duffel in Night Owl I got my first year in college. It is the perfect size for weeks at a time or even over packing for a weekend away. I love the Baroque pattern and since it is retiring the duffel comes in under $60!
3. A new Patagonia Re-tool Snap T pullover. I think I might split this with my parents since some of them are on sale for under $85 during the 30% off sale! I got my first pullover in April and have lived in it all year long!
4. Riding Boots. I love my current set I got back my Junior year of college but after four years the pair is looking a little rough, I mean we got them for under $75 at Belk so I think 4 years of wear and tear (I wear them constantly) is great. I think we will be heading to T.J. Maxx or Marshall's to hunt out a deal.
5. And I couldn't not include this gorgeous top released in my favorite print on my birthday list! This is the only exception to my clothing rule since I doubt this will make it to the ESS in August.
Click through to Polyvore or the individual images to pick up these items for yourself.

I hope you all stay warm on this snow day!

What would be on your wishlist during this time of year?


  1. Happy early birthday! Mine is in two weeks, and like you, I'm asking for another patagonia pullover! I got my first for Christmas and my friends have had to remind me not to wear it so much...oops! It's just so comfy!

  2. Love your picks! I hope you get a few for your bday. :)

  3. Happy early birthday! I love your choices — and AH, I can't believe I've never seen that blouse before. It is beautiful!

  4. Happy (belated at this point) Birthday! Love that Elsa top - First Impressions is one of my favorite prints!



Thanks for the sweet note!
