My Holiday Style Wish List

Are you making your holiday wish list?

Yes, it’s still November, but if you visit any area department store, drive around your neighborhood or turn on the TV, it’s pretty obvious that the holiday season is already here. Of course this means it’s time to think about what you’re going to get your loved ones for Christmas – you may have already checked out a few of our 2012 Holiday Shopping Guide posts for inspiration. 🙂

Don’t forget – there’s also no harm in setting aside time to make your own holiday list –(Either to hand out to friends or family, or as a way of treating yourself)! So, fellow fashionistas take note – I’ve been making my own list (and checking it twice), to highlight some of my favorite shoes and accessories of the season. 🙂

My Holiday Style Wish List

1.     Roxy Women’s Stow Away Scarf

Buy Now: Roxy Stow Away Scarf

I absolutely love to accessorize. This colorful knit scarf from Roxy will add a pretty pop of color to your cold weather outerwear, and could easily be worn as an indoor apparel accessory too.

2.    Steven By Steve Madden Women’s Amplifyd Pump

Buy Now: Steven By Steve Madden Amplifyd Pump

This pump is definitely one of my favorite things. 🙂 Check out the textured nubuck leather, mixed with the elegant peep toe and D’Orsay silhouette. The teal color adds extra style, and the perfect complement to any out-on-the-town outfit. So fierce!

3.   The North Face Women’s Brianna II Boot

Buy Now: The North Face Brianna II Boot

If you live in Wisconsin, or have ever been to this part of the country during the winter months, you know it can be downright frigid! So I’ve been on the lookout for a winter boot that will keep my feet warm, give me traction on the slick snow and ice-covered terrain, but still be stylish enough to wear to the mall. The Brianna II definitely delivers style and comfort – it’s equipped with waterproof, BLC-compliant full-grain leather and 200g PrimaLoft® Eco insulation that’s temperature-rated to an impressive -25°F.

There’s no beating this boot’s traction—The Brianna II features The North Face’s signature Winter Grip® rubber outsole with IcePick® temperature-sensitive lugs. Oh! Did I mention this boot’s super cute? I love the faux fur trim and harness accents. It’s the perfect wear-anywhere winter boot!

4.    Bulova Women’s Diamond Strap Watch

Buy Now: Bulova Diamond Strap Watch

With today’s technology, most people reach for their cell phones to check the time. But if you want a classic, elegant timepiece for someone special, or for yourself, this one from Bulova may be just what you’re looking for. I love the versatility of this watch. The white leather band, gold-tone stainless steel case and mother-of-pearl face with genuine diamond hour markers make it a suitable choice for office or evening wear. It’s a bit of a splurge, but it’s definitely a quality, stylish watch that will last for years to come.

5.    Jessica Simpson Women’s Chad Boot

Buy Now: Jessica Simpson Chad Boot

So if you’ve read posts on our blog before, you’ll know I’m a huge fan of the Jessica Simpson collection. 🙂 The Chad boot easily made its way onto my holiday list for its seemingly endless style options. I absolutely love the riding-inspired look, the heel height and the buttery-smooth leather material – these boots can be dressed up or down with ease. I’m already piecing outfits together in my head as I type!

6.  Timberland Women’s Infinity Scarf

Buy Now: Timberland Infinity Scarf

Infinity scarves are huge this season. I love the color and texture of this style from Timberland – it would look chic with a wide range of colors and styles of winter coats. Fabulous!

7.     Restricted Women’s New Wave Flat

Buy Now: Restricted New Wave Flat

This flat takes style to a new level. Cutouts and laser-cut accents are a huge trend this season. Restricted took the standard flat silhouette and added a chic pointed toe, all-over cutout detail and a cute bow heel accent for added flair. I’m also a huge fan of the price of this one as well. At $54.95, I may just add all three colors to my list. 🙂

8.     Muk Luks® Women’s Miranda Slipper Boot

Buy Now: Muk Luks®  Miranda Slipper Boot

This boot is great for weekend-casual days. It can be worn indoors or out thanks to a durable TPR outsole, and it’s cozy enough to keep feet toasty all winter long.

9.     BCBGeneration Lorelei Wristlet

Buy Now: BCBGeneration Lorelei Wristlet

I’ve been searching for a great little wristlet to take with me to holiday parties. I love this one because it’s just the right size for my lipstick, phone and a few other essentials, and…how can anyone pass up the bling factor?! I’m thinking this would be great for dressy Christmas get-togethers and will look fab with my little black dress while I ring in the New Year.

10. Very Volatile Women’s Fremont Boot

Buy Now: BCBGeneration Fremont Boot

This season, it’s all about the wedge. And I absolutely love the camel color of this bootie from Very Volatile – I could pair it with so many outfit combinations! The Fremont Boot is definitely one style I’m really hoping Santa brings me this year.
