Weekly Wishlist- Birthday Edition!

Well, friends, today's installment of the ol' Weekly Wishlist is a little bit special, because it's my birthday wishlist! Yes sirree, this lady here will be turning 26 next Tuesday! Here are some things I'm wishing for right now:


First up, I'm wishing for basically everything in the Boden fall catalog. When it came in the mail I dog-eared almost every page in the whole damn thing. They make the loveliest pieces! These are the three things that most made my heart go pitter-patter. Also, clearly, I'm totally pumped on fall.

This Amelie sweater dress is seriously too perfect for words. I can see layering it up and down, with boots or flats, with brights or neutrals. So versatile!

Both the sweater and the top would be really cute with high waisted jeans, or tucked into a cute full skirt. And if you wore the top under the sweater with the collar poking out, I would just about die from the cuteness.

So, if you haven't heard of Boden before, obviously you need to check them out. So good.


As usual, I also love just about everything from ModCloth, but am particularly head over heels for this cute knit dress. It seems perfect for the early days of fall, and would be great paired with a light sweater, and some ankle boots. I'd love to add a little red belt around the waist, too!

I've been trying to add to my jewelry collection lately after neglecting it for a very long time, and LOVE this map necklace.



In the last few days, I've decided that I would really love a new pair of booties, and I'm kinda head over heels (ha!) for these booties. The color, the heel height, and the embroidered leather detailing at the back couldn't be any cuter. They're a bit out of my price range, but hey, a girl can dream! Or save. Sigh.


In other non-clothing news, I've been dreaming of having a food dehydrator and a food vacuum sealer for a couple of years now, but have yet to take the plunge. 

I love buying big quantities of produce at the farmers market (it's usually much cheaper) but sometimes just don't want to can up a whole 20 lbs of peaches! This food dehydrator would be amazing to have because I could make my own dried fruit, make an easier task of making fruit leather, and could even dry my own herbs (those packets you get at the grocery store always have way more than I know what to do with)! Heck, you can even make jerky with this thing. How cool would that be?

I also live by myself and cook for myself pretty frequently, so I'd love to be able to make larger portions of food and freeze them without them getting all gross and freezer burned. This food dehydrator is relatively inexpensive, but is supposed to be pretty reliable, so I'd love to have it around to help out with that.

So that's the ol' birthday list! 

What are you wishing for this week?

Til next time!
