What I’m Reading!


kwb reading list

Reading is one of my favorite hobbies! These are the 4 books I’ll be reading (or making a dent in) over my winter break. From a 900-page book on the greatest president ever, to a 200-page young adult book for some light reading. These are some of my suggestions — read along with me!

My Christmas List (the real kind, not the dream kind)

Kelsey's Christmas List
Now this list is very very real. I actually asked others for these items! As you all know, I’m a girly girl. I love me some makeup, yummy scented candles, cozy scarves, and any room decor items. I shall further explain my reasoning for the things I asked for below:
  1. room decor — I love picture frames, mirrors, artwork…just about anything to add a little something to my decor.
  2. coffee cups/mugs — OBSESSED. The cuter the better. I can’t live without coffee and I’m really starting to get into herbal teas, so these will come in handy often. Oh, and it would be an added bonus if it was Lilly.
  3. candles — Okay, who doesn’t love candles? Especially from B&BW. I heard the twisted peppermint is to die for!
  4. makeup — This is always on my list. For me, you can never have too much makeup. I love trying new products and experimenting with new looks. I’m super impressed with Revlon’s lip line, so anything along those lines would be fantastic.
  5. nail polish — All day, every day. Preferably Essie and sparkly, please.
  6. Kindle HD — This one is my biggie. I may not get it, but I’d be so thrilled if I did. Reading is my favorite, but I know I’d be able to read so so so much more if I had one of these bad boys.
  7. pajamas — I don’t know if it’s just me, but it’s practically a tradition in my house to get PJs each year. Normally all I get are the pants, but this year I thought I’d be a little bit more grown up and ask for a matching set! I guess it’s not so grown up if there’s snowmen and monkeys on it though, huh? Whatevs. This Nick & Nora line at Target is adorable!
  8. scarves — My all-time favorite. I adore scarves, but especially infinity scarves this year. I want them in all sizes and colors!

My Dream Christmas Wish List!

Screen shot 2012-12-18 at 1.02.23 PM
As the title implies, this is my DREAM wish list. I don’t remember the last time I actually made a Christmas list, but it was fun living in lala land for a little bit. All of these items are way out of my price range, but if some of you are lucky enough to ask and receive these items for Christmas — lucky you! None of them are necessities or even that practical, but isn’t that what Christmas gifts are all about? I mean, no one asks for things they need…right?
  1. J. Crew — That fuchsia coat..and those cozy shoes.. ah, the sparkly bow ring. Need I say more? I mean, really.
  2. Kate Spade — How adorably funny are these bags? I’d rock those any day.
  3. Lorac — Can’t have too many eye shadow palettes. This is the perfect neutral palette. Even more perfect than the last 4 neutral palettes I bought.
  4. Michael Kors — You know. just a dream bag in every sense of the word.
  5. Tory Burch — I’ve been wanting these forever! Simple black flats with the gold Tory Burch symbol. So. Classy. Ugh.

Another One Turns 21



the kwb birthday gangOne more girl is legal and ready to have a good time! This past Friday we celebrated my friend Nesmira’s 21st birthday! We got all dressed up and went to a delicious dinner at the Elephant Bar. I don’t know if it’s a St. Louis or midwestern restaurant, or if it’s a widespread chain, but it was yummy! I love these beautiful ladies and winter break for allowing me the time to spend with them again!

I didn’t want to go too overboard, so I kept it simple with a cream top with a pleated neckline and shoulders. I paired it with plain dark wash skinnies, and neutral pumps.

top: Forever 21 + skinnies: Forever 21 + watch: Michael Kors + pumps: Jessica Simpson

OOTD: Go-to Tights & Cardigan

the kwb cardigan and tightsI told you I’d be back! This probably isn’t the “back” you were expecting, but it’s raining outside and I have contractors coming to my place all week long. What a great way to start my winter break. So, because I’m going to be in a house of strange men all week, I’m going to make do with what I have on my computer and Polyvore. No worries, I’ll still come up with some awesome posts for you ladies.

I wore this outfit yesterday to do some last minute Christmas shopping. Hence the mirrored hallway at Home Goods in the photo. People stared and I just did not care. Here’s the breakdown of what I wore:

oversized cardigan: Kenar (TJMaxx) + navy tights: unknown brand (TJMaxx) + leg warmers: Chinese Laundry + scarf: Forever 21 + brown riding boots: Alfani

If you’d like to see more OOTDs the instant I post them and all my other shenanigans, follow me on Instagram: thekelseywolfe
