I know spring shopping season has been underway for months already, but New York only got the memo about one second ago. I am finally getting around to gathering my thoughts and shopping for the items on my spring wish list. This short list takes into consideration my quest to pair down to the things I love most, current trends, and which said trends have life beyond the season. I think these edited key items will live in my wardrobe for years and fit seamlessly with what I already own.
This is it! My favorite post of the year! My personal holiday wish list! From table linens to a fancy belt, this list satisfies the fashion lover, the interiors lover, the DIY lover and the clean freak in me. Since this post isn't all about me, I've also so generously rounded up the best black Friday deals in town. Avoid the crowds and shop online. Get your fingers going and shop shop shop!!
1. Cute napkin set from Minted. Because I love to mix and match my tablescapes.
2. I love this modern, fashionable Nixon watch with a gold trim.
3. I am coveting the must-have fashion accessory of the moment, the completely unnecessary, but out yet totally necessary, Gucci belt.
4. Chunky knit blanket to complete our bed.
5. Everyone who has an automatic vacuum raves about it, I'm ready to board this train!
6. I've become such a fan of bralettes, and this one is so very cute!
7. The new Domino book, because, duh!
8. Due for a new coat, and this structured wool winter coat looks cozy and expensive with the leather details.
9. Tiered marble serving plate, because presentation is important to me. Plus they'd look so cute on my shelf.
10. One power tool I don't have in my collection, the multi-purpose, Dremel Tool.

I already own the perfect cropped black leather moto jacket, but lately, I've been craving something a little lighter, something a little happier and more summery something in the tan family. I've been seeing this trend starting to pop up here and there and I actually had a jacket in my cart and it sold out from under my nose! queue the crying emoji. So, here I am on the hunt to find the perfect, affordable light leather (or suede) jacket. Wish me luck as I shop my way around Amsterdam!
Here are a few super chic and (relatively) affordable options.
