Holiday Wish List 2013

I am very excited to share my Holiday Wish List with you. Each item can be matched with its quick reference showing the name and price on the side. Below, you can match each item with a more descriptive reference (and link) where I share with you why it made it to my wish list!

Holiday Wish List 2013

1. Zara Check-Print Blouse, $49.90
I just love this simple checked blouse. It would be perfect worn a little loose, with the front tucked into a pair of light-wash boyfriend jeans. It can be worn dressed-up or casual, and pairing it with a chunky statement necklace will give it a nice feminine touch.

2. Zara Checked Soft Scarf, $29.90 // 3. Zara Double-Sided Checked Soft Scarf, $35.90
These Zara scarves are so amazingly soft and huge. I just purchased the camel colored checked soft scarf and I cannot tell you enough how incredible it is. Personally, I believe the scarves sold in the United States are too thin and small to really be considered scarves (if that makes sense). European scarves tend to be huge and cozy because they are actually used for warmth. To make a long story short, I have been searching high and low for a European style scarf and finally found this one (thanks to Cathy of Poor Little It Girl). It is gorgeous and I love it.

4. Sole Society Gilia Block Heel Shoetie in French Taupe, $79.95
Do I really need to say anything about these booties? They're perfect. I love the simple style that can be worn with practically anything. Not to mention the thick block heel which makes them comfy to wear on a daily basis.

5. Aeropostale Hooded Zip-Front Parka in Summer Tan, $49.75 (on sale)
I have been looking for a camel colored utility style jacket (without fur on the hood) for some time now. I love that the utility-ness (yes, I made that word up) of this jacket is very subtle, and the material is softer than the usual stiff canvas you usually find with these jackets. Paired with a long sleeve and my Zara scarf, this would be perfect for winter. Since Monterey stays cold most of the year, I would get use out of this all year round.

6. Marc Jacobs Baker 36.5MM Watch, $175
I have wanted this watch for about a year now. I love how simple and casual it is, and the grey looks great against the rose gold. Although I previously decided I am buying this for myself for my birthday in February, I decided to include it in my holiday wish list because 1) I can't stop thinking about it and 2) just because I have plans to buy it doesn't mean I can't wish for it!

7. Kate Spade Grove Court Blaine, $199 (on sale)
This is another item I have wanted for a year or so. Sadly, I cannot find it anywhere because I think it is being discontinued (so sad!). With that aside, I just love the pebble leather and camel color. This is a perfect carry-all type bag that you can use for travel or everyday.

What is on your holiday wish list? I would love to see some of the items you're wishing for this year!
