A Few of My Favorite Things

Sunday, December 22, 2013

This year for Christmas Mr. and I got a new hot water heater, a washing machine, and a starter for the car.  Can you believe they all broke the week before Christmas?  Oh well.  As our wise teenager said, "You win some, you lose some." But a girl can dream - so how about we take a look at a few of my favorite things?

Is there anything more elegant, classic, and versatile than a pretty white blouse?  This one is on my radar.

I prefer a simple leather boot with a tall shaft.  These are one of my favorites right now.  Wish the amaretto wasn't out of stock.  I also like these for shorter legs.

I have these velvet jeans and love them!  Just a word of advice, order tall if you have longer legs.

I'm still wearing last year's faux fur vest (similar).  Love this cozy/sexy faux fur scarf.  Find a similar ones here and here.

Super soft jammie pants are always a good idea.  Love these!

A friend introduced me to these jeans and let me just say, they are amazing!

Uggs are a must for those crazy cold days when nothing else will do.  Of course these classics are always a great option.

Leggings, boots, and cozy sweaters are one of my go-to winter outfits.  These are my favorite leggings and the price is great!

Happy shopping!


  1. Love your style Rene! Although necessary...an new car starter is not nearly as fun as a great new pair of boots! Happy Holidays to you and yours.

  2. Thank you Laura! Yes, splurges are much more fun to purchase than necessities.

  3. Now if I only had those legs to fit in fabulous skinny jeans!! Great picks all classic and timeless!
    Have a beautiful Christmas!!

  4. Love that top and Rag & Bone is a personal favorite! Their jeans fit like no other for me.

  5. Those jeans changed my life. I doubt I will ever buy another pair again. Every time I go shopping and try on new jeans I look at my inner thighs in the other jeans compared to the way they look in the R&B I walked in with and I put them all back.

    And I love the other picks. Skinny jeans, boots, and a blouse is my step-it up staple and yoga pants with uggs is the usual morning daily. Fur is always best. Newly obsessed with cute pajamas. I'm having a bit of a pj hoarding problem this fall :)


    1. Ha! You look great in everything Skinny Minny :).

  6. All great picks Rene! I don't want to sound greedy but I'd love one of each! My hubby and I are just doing small items for one another this year. We have a remodeling project coming up so decided nothing big for Christmas. That blouse is gorgeous. I would live in that...so pretty and feminine. I need to check out those jeans that you recommend.
