My New Jacket And Boots
The holidays have come and gone in the blink of an eye once again. I think you will all agree that the best part of the holidays is the giving and receiving of gifts. When we were children we would write our lists and eagerly wait for Santa to arrive with as many of them as we could hope for and now we are adults, we become our own Santa in effect. We still write our lists, the only difference is my list goes to my husband and his list comes to me. Our son who is eighteen is too busy to write a list since he is a teenager, so he just tells us what he wants. It may not sound very exciting but it actually works and we end up receiving things we really need and don’t have to fight the crowds to return anything in the holiday sale madness.
This year was the first time that I did a lot of my shopping on line and I loved it. It was so much easier since I already knew what my husband and son wanted. The same was true for me picking my own gifts. My husband told me to send him a few links of things I had seen that I liked and he’ll ask Santa for them for me. I admit I am not an easy person to shop for especially when it comes to clothes, so this worked fine. Sure enough, Santa got my list right. I scored and received a lot of things I loved along with a couple of great surprises like a spa package and a couple of manicure/pedicure sessions courtesy of my son.
Last weekend when we went out, I decided to wear a couple of my gifts and I would like to get your opinion on them. My booties were one of the first things I found online back in December and I immediately loved them because of the classic color. They are Ralph Lauren and they were on sale for a great price. I included the link for you below in case you are interested because they are still on sale and they also have them in black.
My Zara jacket was the other great find, I love the color and the gold zipper detailing. Unfortunately it is no longer available on their website since it was on sale but you may be able to find them in their stores. I decided to wear it with one of my favorite lace tops, distressed jeans and of course my signature strands of necklaces I always love to use to accessorize my outfits.
