My holiday shopping is all wrapped up, which leaves just enough time to indulge in my own wish list. Hence, the title of this post and a gift guide of five prezzie suggestions. A few lean more towards want than need. A couple are things I already own and love – and therefore never want to run out of. And yes, while these are things I shamelessly admit to lusting after for myself, I guarantee any stylish gal you know wouldn’t be mad to receive them. Happy Holidays! 1. Gimme A Chic Coat! With Mother Nature being on her best behaviour it only seems fair to reward her by stepping out in an eye-catching lightweight coat. I like my outerwear packed to the gills with personality, so this printed one is right up my ally. H&M Pattern Coat, $60 2. Gimme Gorgeous Skin!

Confession: I have a serious soft spot for a good piece of outerwear. Something you can throw on top of anything and feel instantly ‘dressed’ is a style win. And now that spring has officially sprung, I’ve happily said sayonara to my parka and heavy wool coats, and reacquainted myself with the lighter outerwear that’s been hanging patiently in my closet for what seems like an eternity. How you doin’ leather moto? Animal print topper, you’re clearly ready for a walk on the wild side. And, dear military jacket, I see you’re geared up for regular rotation. As for my preferred type of trench: a sleeveless style is calling my name. What say you? Is there a particular jacket style that’s caught your eye? I’d love to hear about it!
