If Wishes Were Horses...

Photo from Tuckernuck
Every year my mom and I go to the Washington International Horse Show and every year we walk around the concourse to browse the different vendors. Dubarry always has an employee wearing these boots, standing in a pan of water for the entire show. I love the classic and timeless look to these boots, and although they are very expensive, I think I would wear them enough to warrant buying a pair someday.

I could go on and on about my love for these shoes, but I know most of you already feel the same way.

There have been countless occasions where I would have loved to have had this jacket. I don't want to go through another fall/winter without it...

 Printed Tunics
Tunics are a summer essential and having a printed one makes the day a tad more colorful.  Check out Lilly Pultizer and Tuckernuck for more.

I have taken a liking to hats recently. They are great for less-then-perfect-hair days, sunny days, or just because days. Try The Black Dog, Vineyard Vines, Southern Tide, and Ralph Lauren for more.

Printed Shorts
Last year,  I purchased a pair of Lilly Callahan shorts in the Get Nauti print at a midsummer Lilly sale on Martha's Vineyard. I am incredibly picky about the way my pants and shorts fit and usually leave stores frustrated and discouraged. However, when I put on these shorts, they "fit like a glove," as my mother says.  Try Vineyard Vines and J.Crew for more.

Many have deemed this "the perfect pullover." I have no way to say if that's true or not as I have never tried one on, but if it looks comfy and warm in photos, it should be in reality as well!

Vineyard Vines Tumblr Surprise

Boomer on the Vineyard Vines Tumblr
Thank you to Vineyard Vines for choosing this photo for Tumblr! I checked the Tumblr page a few days ago and started dancing around the room when I saw my dog on it... I picked him up and held him up to the computer, but he was more interested in the doughnut I had siting on the computer desk then the photo (surprise, surprise). However, I was singing the "It's my birthday" victory chant for quite awhile.

J. Crew Love Story

Camp socks, Sweater

I have fully taken advantage of after Christmas sales! Practically every store offered some sort of special or sale, and I went a little crazy...

Snow in Suburbia

This past Thursday's snowfall put us Virginians in about four inches of snow. It seems miniscule, but any amount of snow in the Washington area puts everyone into a frenzy and before you know it, the streets are covered in a good inch of salt and sand. 

I had a great time sledding as the snow was whipping around Thursday night. This was all possible thanks to wool socks, Bean Boots, and thick gloves. The snow was the heavy type of that makes sleds go fast and building snowmen possible. The snow has since disappeared and is replaced by the polar vortex to remind us that it is still winter (even though it's predicted to be 56 degrees on Sunday).
