Can I just squee for a moment about how generous my family was this year for Christmas?  Not only did I get so many items off my list but I also FINALLY ended up with the J. Crew Schoolboy navy blazer I’ve been lusting after for months and months.  Granted, that was a joint Christmas and birthday present from my dad and my husband and I had to order it because they were out of my size in the store but I don’t care.  So excited!

And, of course, the Gorjana Griffin bracelet I first saw on Corals and Cognacs months ago.  My husband is too sweet!

I also did pretty good with my no-shopping-for-myself ban.  I mean, jeans aren’t really something you can ask someone else to buy for you.  The white blazer I bought AFTER Christmas so I think that’s okay. Plus, it fills a huge hole in my closet. The Sole Society shoes were too good of a deal to pass up and I really wanted the Old Navy shirt to wear to Christmas brunch with one side of my family.

Getting new clothes for Christmas is so fun and I always look forward to having new pieces in my wardrobe for the new year.
