In less than 57 days, I will turn 30 years old. I really can't believe it. My twenties have been better than I could have ever dreamed of... I've complained about them a lot in the past. I know I've even said, "20s suck" once or twice (or 100 times) but when I look back they were really pretty great! So many milestones. So many precious memories. College, sorority, moving to Chicago, living with my best friends, travels, meeting my husband, getting married and now trying to have a baby. Not too shabby! I sure did cram a whole lot into the 29th year, wouldn't you say?
So anyway. Back to the point of this post. My "I'm turning 30" Wish List. Which is more like my birthday-slash-Christmas list since they are so close together! I will do a more holiday lists in the coming weeks... stay tuned.
When it comes to milestone birthdays, I like to ask for things that I will keep forever. Timeless items. Items that I will keep in my closet, see in the mornings and remember the special day. Things that I will one day show my children and say, "your dad gave me this for my 30th birthday, can you believe I was 30 once?!" I make myself laugh.
#1 on my list - the long-time coveted Hermes Click H Narrow Enamel Bracelet - PM. This is not the first time I've posted about this bracelet. I would love any color with gold but black and orange are tied for #1 choice. Black is more neutral. Orange is Hermes signature color. Tough call. I love both of them equally. Now that my last name officially starts with an "H" I think it's only right for me to own one of these beauties, don't you?
My closet needs these. Shoes are always the main source of stress in the what-am-I-going-to-wear drama that takes place in my - now our - closet. If these (size 35.5) were in there our closet would be a much more pleasant place to be!
My group of girlfriends decided about four years ago that we would give each other the same gift for all of our 30th birthdays. We decided on a David Yurman 5mm cable cuff. So I will be getting one in a surprise color from my BFFs in December! I already own one that matches my mom and sisters. So why am I posting these two bracelets below? I would love a 3rd to stack with the other two for some dimension. I think a classic 7mm or the 7mm buckle would look great with 2 5mm cuffs. David Yurman fits my personality well. I currently wear my blue topaz cuff coupled with my Michele watch on my left hand. I've got a LOT going on on my left arm these days.... so this is my solution to decorating my right arm!
I have an order in with JH for an everyday LV but I love the Eva Clutch by Louis Vuitton. The versatility is outstanding. It makes a great option for when you don't want to lug your giant everyday handbag to dinner with friends. On vacation... cross-body strap for shopping or sightseeing during the day and chain strap for an evening out on the town! The more I look at this bag the more I want it.
Below are a few more items that I might not keep forever but would enjoy equally as much...
I could really use a new fleece and I've had my eyes on this lovely beige one (size small) for awhile now. It looks so cozy. If and when I own this, you will most likely find me wearing it on the couch while watching TV as well as outdoors! Right, Jenna?
I adore this Trudie Herringbone coat by J.Crew. Both colors are gorgeous.
Blue-Eyed Bride introduced me to Kendra Scott once I made the leap into the Big Earrings Club! Below are two pairs of the Danielle Earrings - a HUGE hit with celebrities and lots of bloggers too. My favorite colors are the green & turquoise.
Because I'm a tech-addict, I think I need an [= I just want an] iPad.
Non-visual Wish List:
1. For my husband to clean out the 3rd bedroom so it can be used for it's intended purpose as a comfy-cozy office space with a desk, large computer screen and an oversized chair or small couch for reading.
2. For God to give me strength to go the gym (or exercise daily) so I don't have to continue to sell all of my designer jeans to skinner blog readers ;)
3. For the Furniture Fairy to help us find the right china cabinet so I can remove the 72 boxes of wine glasses and barware from the guest bedroom floor.
*I really wanted a pair of boots and a pair of black revas on this list but I have not found a pair of boots for my liking yet and I have to say the reva selection this season is kind of poor.
What is on your Christmas Wish List this year? Have you already celebrated your 30th birthday? If so, what did you get for your 30th?
