Fall Wish List

Last year at the beginning of the fall semester I let myself have a big {for me} splurge. I decided from now on, once a year I will treat myself to a big "want." Obviously I have my wedding dress purchase coming up, but I work hard at my job, and I still want my annual treat. Last year I got a Burberry scarf. I had wanted one for years and could never justify the expense {or afford one at my old job}.
I have no buyer's remorse and I love my scarf. Although I will say it might have been a better choice to have bought a cotton scarf instead of cashmere. It is only really cold enough for a cashmere scarf in January and February in SC {if ever}. This was at a football game in November, and I had to take it off because I was burning up. The cashmere feels like heaven though, so I'm really not sorry.

I have to say I am pretty pleased with myself because my Wish List for this year is all practical stuff, and I can probably buy a good bit of it for what I spent on the scarf. Sounds like a win/win situation to me.
So it's not exactly like I live in Chicago and have to walk to work in the snow, but I still think these will be super useful and I hear that they last forever. I love this color (Merlot), its very appropriate for a Gamecock like myself.
My casual jacket is basically a North Face knock off from Dover Saddlery, and I've had it since college so I think last winter was it's last.
I want to see if they are really as great as everyone says. I will never buy VS yoga pants again, they stretch out, fade, and pill.
My only other want is more Pure Barre classes. I'm currently out and dreading the price tag of purchasing more. They are so worth it though, and I want to look my best for my wedding. I will pull the trigger on getting more soon.
Do you have a Fall Wish List? What are some of your favorite indulgences? 


  1. There are all sorts of things I really want but won't buy for myself.
    I really wanted an Elizabeth McKay Scotland Dress for Shelby's baptism but didn't do it. I really woiuld like a pair of Tory Burch Revas and a TB purse.
    Do I need it? NO!

  2. I have Hunter boots, but definitely should have bought the ones with more room in the calf area. TIGHT! But then again, I have larger than normal legs to begin with. I still love them.

    I think I saw recently that Lululemon is opening a store on Devine Street sometime soon. Just an FYI :-)

  3. I have VS yoga pants and they are starting to fade and get a hole in them! FAIL! I need to invest in LULU too! I also wanna get Hunters! I just told Mr. Big Truck this the other day!

  4. I've heard such amazing things about lulu shorts for crossfit but i just can't justify the price tag. I do think its a-ok to have a personal wish list and indulge once in a while!

  5. Purée Barre is amazing and health is always worth the splurge! Especially when you need to look and feel good doing it so go get you some lulu girl! :)

  6. *pure gotta love that autocorrect!!

  7. This is such a great idea! I love that Burberry scarf! I'm thinking I want a pair of Hunter boots for Christmas, but I think I'm going to go with black!

    P.S. I'm a senior at USC this year--go Cocks!
