MY BIRTHDAY WISH LIST

I have a great feeling about this next year! I don't really have anything special planned, and honestly, I don't think my birthdays will ever be as great or fun as they once were because so much of that stemmed from my mom. She LIVED for birthdays, parties and celebrations. It's hard to really revel in this day without her here. At the same time, I take nothing in my life for granted and know how unbelievably fortunate I am despite loss. I know the best gift of all will arrive in March, but there's no harm in treating myself to a few of these cuties in the meantime...

Linen Cotton Stripe Scarf // I have several scarves from this brand and love them all. The blue stripes will be perfect for summer!

35mm f/1.8 Lens  & 40mm f/2.8 Lens // I'm SO excited to use and get to know my new camera. I took a workshop a few weeks ago and the instructor suggested upgrading my lens... I'm currently deciding between these two.

GG Marmont Mini Matelass√© Camera Bag // Admittedly not the most practical camera bag, but since we got our diaper bag (NOT the Prada) I'm thinking I may want a smaller crossbody to wear and carry my Nikon around in!

High Waist Leggings // Because I'm always thinking about my next gym outfit...

Metcon Training Sneakers // ...and shoes.

Puckered Stripe Bikini Top & Bottom // We're planning a tropical family vacation for the fall and I'm absolutely already thinking about swimsuits. 

Palisades Off The Shoulder Sweater // Even though my post-baby body is still pretty far away, I still find myself thinking about things I'd like to wear next summer and fall. Also on that list are these distressed skinny jeans, this ruffle sleeve tee, this "J'Adore Coffee" tee, this long cardigan...

Cashmere Beanie // My beanies are all pretty chunky/meant for outdoor wear, but I have a feeling I'd appreciate this lightweight one (and I'd get a lot of use out of it come spring...)

Mandarino Di Amalfi Parfum // Treating myself to one of Tom Ford's perfume has been on my "crazy shit to do" list for eons. Maybe 33 is the moment to do it...

Luminizer Primer // Sometimes when I'm getting ready in the morning there's a large gap of time that happens between applying my skincare and applying my makeup. I like that this imparts a pretty appearance pre-foundation. 

Ridge Sweatshirt // Everything about this is perfection - the color, the slouchy fit, the tulip hem...

Turquoise Cabochon Initial Necklace // Even though I wear the same necklace and earrings almost every single day, I love the idea of wearing Baby Girl's initial around my neck and can't get this stunner out of my mind!

What's on your birthday wish list this year?

Happy Friday! Wishing you a warm and wonderful weekend.
