dreaming of….

Today I am dreaming of….

This J. Crew gold skirt.

These ridiculously perfect shoes.
Oh to have $77 extra dollars lying around.
Seriously. ย 
I haven’t wanted anything so badly in quite some time.

Actually being organized enough to send Christmas cards this year
and then sending personalized ones like these.

Having someone throw me a Mexican fiesta party like this.
Complete with taco truck catering.

This lace lumberjack necklace.

Curling up here….

….with a cup of hot cocoa & homemade marshmallows….

….and this book that I’m loving but haven’t had time to finish yet!

What are you dreaming of today?



  1. Amazing skirt is amazing

  2. mmmm…that cup of hot cocoa right now would be PERFECT!


  3. 1. that gold skirt reminds me that I want sequined leggings. now to have a place to wear them..
    2. buffalo plaid chair is the definition of the perfect fireplace chair
    3. those Christmas cards are adorable. the pricing actually isn’t bad and what a great memory to have recorded. (its our official 1 st Christmas in our grown up house)

    happy Tuesday!

  4. I second… everything!

  5. I’ve been reading for a while, but I’m not sure I’ve ever commented… I just had to today, though, because a) That J.Crew skirt is AMAZING, and b) I just finished “Cold Tangerines” a month or so ago and fell in love with Shauna Neiquist. She’s got such a great way with words!

  6. wow, i wish you wouldn’t have shared that skirt because now i’m going to be dreaming about it!

    the necklace is cute, and i wish i felt crafty enough to make christmas cards like that!


  7. A beautiful pair of Donald J. Pliner shoes that are seriously out of my budget right now. The Pumpkin dessert I am making for my husband for his “book club for men”, (doesn’t this sound like hair club for men”?) (At least he has friends who read!). And maybe an extra hour in bed for me to read before I pass out mid sentence. Very cute post!!

  8. I just adore that card!!!!! I always make my own cards to send out for the holidays, but those cards are so darling I just might change my mind one of these days!
    and that necklace is SOOO adorable!!!
    I am dreaming of a white Christmas, which, living in Southern California, isn’t very likely!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. I’m definitely dreamin of that skirt now!!!

  10. Oh my, that gold skirt and lumberjack necklace are so pretty! Happy Tuesday Lauren!

  11. I love that skirt. It’d be perfect for the holidays. Right now I’m dreaming of what I’m going to be doing on my day off of work today. I’m thinking a pedicure sounds pretty daggum good.

  12. LOVE the shoes! and I’m not even a huge shoe person!

  13. Oooh, I am LOVING that gold skirt. LOOOVE x 10.

  14. That skirt is on my wish list as well with almost everything from J. Crew!!! HA! And Hot chocolates have my heart this time of year!! MMMM! Hugs and love! xo

  15. That skirt is soooo pretty!!!

  16. I have a picture of those shoes saved on my desktop – love them!!

  17. That skirt really is SO cute. Now you made me want it. Too bad Jcrew is no where near in my budget.

  18. wow love that skirt! I’m dreaming of the weekend as we are going to a gig of two of our fav local bands and staying in a hotel right next door wooooohoooo!!!

  19. ohmygosh. that skirt!!! I NEED.

  20. I thought you would have bought the gold skirt by now. I say go for it. Stop dreaming about it and buy it. You will look fabulous in it and clearly, you really want it =)

    Right now I am dreaming about all the shopping I am going to do when I go to San Francisco.

  21. I like everything on your “want” list, especially the holiday card. It’s adorable and so classic.

    Glad to hear you’re liking Cold Tangerines so far. How far along are you? It’s one of my favorites.

    What’s stopping us from throwing a mexican fiesta? I say we do it STAT. Taco truck and all : )

  22. a mexican fiesta party? i’m so IN!
    and i’ve coveted that J Crew skirt for so long! it’s gorgeous!
    lately i’m loving… the Lanvin for H&M collection, and the fact that i quit my full-time job!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. i made ur pumpkin chocolate chip muffins twice this weekend and once for my small group for tomorrow. they are TO DIE FOR! thank you much:)

  24. Oh I love all these things! I’m in the middle of that book too – I can’t get through it, even though I want to! ๐Ÿ™‚ Your blog is cute!
    love, Jordanna

  25. Lauren. OH MY GOODNESS. I haven’t seen anything nearly as gorgeous as either that gold J.Crew skirt OR those incredible shoes in a long time . . . and now I’m daydreaming about both of them! I clearly love your taste. ๐Ÿ™‚ Seriously, those are two amazing finds . . . part of the problem with the Christmas season is that shopping for other people means that you inevitably find things you want yourself! Ugh. ๐Ÿ˜‰
