My Holiday Wish List

November 28, 2020

What does a Fashion Barbie's holiday wish list look like in a year that has largely upended her typical approach to fashion and style? I'll be honest that making this list was rather challenging this year, not only because I'm making Drake happy by wearing less (as in like, fewer new clothes) and also going out less (because of a pandemic) but also because, since online shopping is one of the few ways I can momentarily boost my serotonin these days, I've more or less purchased all the things I actually want to wear already. Take for example this rainbow sweater I found at Anthropologie. In any other year, I'd bookmark it and send it to my family for an easy Christmas idea. But this year, waiting 2 months for a sweater sounded awful, and Anthropologie was having a 40% off sweaters discount anyway so I got it for a great price. Sorry, Christmas list, but instant (or at least faster) gratification wins every time.

That being said, there are some things that I've taken note of that I might appreciate as gifts, so enjoy, family and friends, my 2020 Holiday Wish List:

H&M Oversized Shirt Jacket

The 'shacket' has been trending all fall long, and I know it's a cool outerwear piece that is also practical for California's milder climate.

I Want To Be Where The Normal People Are by Rachel Bloom

When Crazy Ex-Girlfriend ended, I was sad but excited to see what creator and star Rachel Bloom would do next (if you haven't watched, I highly recommend, it's so fun and the songs are incredible). Lucky for me, she just came out with a book of essays that I cannot wait to read.

Ancient Greek Sandals Thais Sandals

As a San Diego girl through and through, I spend most of my days, even when it is considered sweater weather, wearing sandals. My current go-to slides from Madewell have eroded to such a point that my heels are literally falling off my shoes, and I've determined it is probably time for me to seek out a new pair. I've heard nothing but rave reviews from Ancient Greek Sandals and let's be honest, I trust them on name alone to make a chic, classic sandal style that will last forever.

Out From Under Kya Fleece Jogger Pant

If I'm going to be working from home indefinitely and bringing loungewear into heavier rotation, might as well make it pink, right?

Mare Mare Maria Tunic Dress

Continuing on the magenta color story (I think it's one of my power colors, to be honest) I think this dress from Anthropologie is so dreamy. I also like it in blue!

& Other Stories Relaxed Belt Mini Dress

Another chic dress option is this sweater dress from & Other Stories. Honestly, I'd be fine with probably anything from their catalogue, I'm obsessed.

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Secrets Full Size Set

This lipstick is supposed to be universally flattering and literally everyone who likes makeup raves about how great Pillow Talk is. Let's try it and see!

& Other Stories Chunky Sole Leather Chelsea Boots

I'm absolutely loving the chunky boot trend and think this is a style I can rock without ruining my feet completely, and I think they'll look really cool with all my girly dresses.

Diptyque Baies Candle

If Christmas isn't the time to ask for fancy candles, when is?

Marine Layer Signature Lined Hoodie in Ash Heather Stars

I've been looking for a new hoodie to wear while working from home (sometimes I get chilly!) and this sweatshirt is both versatile and features just the right amount of Lindsey style with the multicolor stars.

AGOLDE Cherie High Rise Straight Jeans

I own a distressed version of these jeans but they've unfortunately distressed a bit beyond wearability (namely, a big hole on the butt) but I absolutely love them and how they fit, so I love this cleaned up version of the same cut.
