Birthday Wishlist

It's two weeks to my birthday, which means it's time to share a few things I'm wishing for this year.

Back in October I ordered a bike. In December it showed up on my doorstep, Sean and I put it together and I haven't ridden it yet. But warmer days are coming, and I'm going to need a helmet. When I found out I could have a gold one, naturally I put it on my list.

I'm feeling very swept up in all the new spring and summer things hitting the shelves as of late, but I'm trying not to indulge and only make purchases after I've considered how much use I'll get, how much I love it, and how much value it will add to my closet. Even if I don't actually receive any of these pieces for my birthday, I've definitely been considering them and would like to gratify myself with at least one.

Gold Helmet, $95 at Thousand
Mini Opal Ring, $82 at Moorea Seal
Lace Camisole, $29 at H&M (also like this silk one)
Rebecca Minkoff Gold Sophia Bag, $135 at Amazon
Marc Fisher Crisscross Slide, $140 at Nordstrom


  1. These are such pretty picks! I really love those slides. I'm sure you'd get a ton of use out of them!

  3. I love that gold bike helmet! I need to get one (seriously)...and it's birthday in two weeks too. I smell an opportunity....

  4. The hideous helmets were always my least favourite part of biking, but I could definitely get enthusiastic about that adorable gold helmet! I do hope you'll receive a few of the pieces on your wishlist for your birthday this year, because I would love to see you sporting that lovely gold handbag and the beautiful opal ring from Moorea Seal.

  5. Oh my goodness, I LOVE that helmet! What a great find:) Kisses, sweetie. xoxo

  6. Ooooh that ring is so pretty!! Loving all of these pieces!

  7. I've had my eye on the thousand helmet for a while! It's so cute :)

  8. That helmet is gorgeous! I can't get over how chic a bike helmet can be!

  9. You only need the helmet :)
    You sound like me... I got a bike last year and have ridden it maybe half a dozen times. I am such a wimp-

  10. Loving the gold theme! The Rebecca Minkoff bag is my favorite :)

  11. Happy Birthday (in advance!)
    The gold helmet is perfect--it's practical yet stylish!!
    We used to ride our bikes a little bit---we'd ride to a breakfast place, eat and then ride home! That's the only way I can get my husband to exercise--ha ha!

  12. Happy early birthday! I think you need that helmet. It is so cool! These are great picks. I also love the bag and the slides!

  14. Oh man. A gold helmet?! That's going on my own birthday wish list! Mine is mint green, which is still pretty great, but not nearly as fabulous!
