gifts for us girls

all this week we've been looking and buying for the people in our lives. the holidays are certainly about much more than things, but isn't it priceless to see their faces when they open presents and get just what they asked for or never knew they wanted? 

but this list is about us. below are a few things i think any mom would enjoy.    

 i reach for a sweatshirt fairly often. but once you're out of college and finals are behind you, sweats need to be a little more upscale. i like this one from peace love world; quality fabric and fun to wear . get it  here.

 it may seem like a cheesy gift, like a tie for grandpa, but i think a great pair of pajamas is a solid choice. and i'm sure the husband would enjoy me wearing his tee shirts less often. these are by serena and lilly. get them  here.

 in historical times, signet rings would be pressed into hot wax or soft clay, and used as an identification mark proving autheticity. today, they're just pretty. but i think they make for a lovely heirloom piece. this one is by letters by zoe and you can get it  here  in several metals.

 if you already have your black coat. and if you already have a camel color, go for this true scene-stealer. it's bright alright, but it will work with your blacks and whites and browns, and navy too. no, really i got it; it's a winner. get it at j crew  here.
