Marianne: Birthday Wishlist

My birthday is right around the corner, and for once I have a wishlist a mile long. Usually my mind goes blank when my husband asks what I would like, but this year was easy. Here's what's on my wishlist, realistic or not.

First up, some new jeans. I want some super long flares that aren't too flare-y. I have pretty much set my sites on the AG Farrah:

I don't just covet EmersonMade's clothes and accessories, I pretty much covet Emerson's life. She has a wonderful, innate style and the clothes are completely gorgeous. I'll take this outfit, please.
I really need some new shorts. Something easy that I can run around all weekend in. I think these are honestly wildly overpriced, but on the other hand, I love how Paperboy's pants fit me and they are always the softest.

I've been coveting the Miz Mooz Hype sandals since I laid eyes on them, and I really need a neutral sandal:

But let's face it, since Adrien's post I am pretty much dying for the green. Neutral, schmutral.

A lot of my work-appropriate summer dresses are looking pretty darn shabby. Adrien linked to this one a few days back and I keep visiting it. I think it would look great with a tan.


And then this, which isn't work appropriate at all, but you know I want it:

There are seriously so many other things I am coveting right now, like a new bag (something brown and vintage-y), an iPad (bad!), a remote for my camera (necessary!), and a bunch of new Bobbi Brown makeup (my new face obsession), but dear lord woman. Show some restraint.

What about you? Do you enter your birthday month armed with a wish list, or do you get amnesia when asked what you want?


  1. Love those army green/grey shorts. Just added them to my mental wishlist!

    I tell the bf "Look at my blog! It's full of stuff I want!" when holidays come around but I still have to narrow things down for him and he surprises me.

    Happy early birthday! I hope you get what you want! :)

  2. Have you looked at J.Crew's shorts? They have some cute options in the sale section and they have free shipping today and tomorrow.

  3. I haven't, but I will now, thank you!

  4. Ok. You know that super cute swimsuit I posted on Twitter? Kohl's. I know. But I also found shorts there that I lurve. One pair of Lauren Conrad's brand. I know. And another random brand. Three pair on sale for like $80 or so. It's worth a look ;-)
