If you are like me, you always spend some money on yourself during the holiday shopping season. It’s too hard not to with all the great sales going on! To keep spending to a minimum, it helps to have a list of what you truly need and a few items that you really, really want so that when you see them on sale, you can get them without feeling guilty!

Here is my Winter Wish List and what I’ll be shopping for this month:

If you follow my Fashion File board on Pinterest, you know I am a little faux-fur obsessed this season! Ever since meeting Stacy London while she was wearing a fabulous faux-fur vest, I’ve been dying to find the perfect piece for my wardrobe. The problem I had was finding a faux that didn’t look faux. Cheap faux-fur is generally rough in texture and looks matted. I have finally found a belted coat that looks luxurious and has a great price tag!

I love the look of skinny jeans, a long cardi and boots. This to me is the ultimate cozy winter style. Finding a sweater that is interesting enough to be the statement piece of the look is key to keeping the look fun, not frumpy! This Chevron Belted Cardigan has the perfect funky look!

I love snakeskin pants. I own, and wear, two pairs but when I saw these metallic snakeskin print skinny jeans, I knew I had to own them! So HOT!

I have a lot of shoes…a LOT! Many of which are boots. What I lack are black booties with a closed toe. What I am looking for is a pair that is simple enough to wear with many, many outfits. A pair without hardware. A pair with a low heel. A pair with a classic style so I can wear it for at least a couple of winter seasons. I think I found them:

I like to keep my jewelry simple but unique. Layering on takes too much thought when getting ready in the morning and while it looks fabulous, it doesn’t fit my lifestyle. I prefer wearing one or two statement pieces that I can put on quickly and look fabulous wearing. This gold bracelet is so versatile, working for business or fun and makes a gorgeous statement without the clinking of multiple bangles! It’s what I call effortless style!

What is on your winter wish list? Are you looking for the perfect coat, a new pair of boots or a stylish pair of gloves? Leave a comment below and share! Don’t forget to keep you eyes open for great sales and it’s not too late to share your list with Santa!
