Let me just preface this post with the fact I was entirely spoiled this (and every) Christmas, and I truly felt like I was wrapped up in a blanket of love. That might sound entirely cheesy but it’s true! Yes, I post these wishlists monthly, but in no way to I expect or want everything I post- it’s just a collection of things that have caught my eye.

After spending a lovely Christmas weekend with my parents, complete with the sushi and a movie tradition I started with them a few years ago, we ended the year with a nice dinner in Old Town Alexandria then headed home early. It was so freezing that fireworks were out of the question. Kendall is actually going to be gone for a couple weeks for work, coming home to meet with our wedding church, do our tasting for our wedding menu, then leaving again for army stuff. I’ll be spending a little extra time with mama and daddy D- I just want to be warm and cozy with the people I love this time of year.

  1. Could I be anymore predictable? The Asymmetrical Ruffle Cold Shoulder Top comes in a bunch of colors and is on sale!
  2. Maybe it’s because I’m freezing and dreaming of going somewhere sunny, like Florida, but the Orange Print Green Sweatshirt just looks so… pleasant to me.
  3. Same with the  Pretty Rebellious Juniors’ Peachy Graphic Ruffled Top. It’s totally random but I adore something about the graphic/ ruffle combo.
  4. The thing I like most about the Midnight Blue Five-Row Necklace is that it reminds me of the jewelry that belonged to my great grandmother that I got to play with growing up.
  5. I’m all about spoiling my lips in the winter and the Balm Baby Trio WINKY LUX looks like the thing to do just that. The Winky Lux signature Flower Balm contains a real flower and featuring pH-shade match technology for long-lasting stain. The unicorn-inspired Glimmer Balm creates a subtle iridescent shimmer for magic that lasts all day, and the limited-edition gold balm in 24kt has a hint of twinkling gold.
  6. The Rivington Convertible Flap Petrol Backpack is the backpack I won’t shut up about. It keeps going deeper on sale but is still totally out of my price range.
  7. I was so excited when the white ones came (back) out last year but of course I’m diggin’ the pink Freestyle Nubuck High Top Sneakers.
  8. If I can find my Nordstrom card before it sells out, I’m getting the Alfred Sung Woven Fit & Flare Dress for my wedding rehearsal.
  9. I just want to be warm. Enter this Bp Leopard Print Ruana.

Last Friday before 2018! Kendall and I opted for a romantic night with dinner at Hunting Creek and fireworks to bring in the new year. We’re going to play with my new camera this weekend and hopefully I’ll have lots of fresh content soon! Absolutely psyched we might get some snow this weekend too!

Cheers Y’all Banner

Lately on The CaroLøve

Since I have barely posted this week, I thought it would be interesting instead to see my top nine most popular posts from the last year, partly because I want to see what got your attention and partly to just look back and reflect on this insane year. Oddly enough- no outfit posts made it! In ascending order (9 ~~> 1):

  • Engagement session with Darrell McDavid– We absolutely love our wedding photographer! He really captured us well and I can’t wait to see his work on the big day!
  • Cupshe swim– This kind of goes to show you that women just want affordable swimwear that makes them feel confident!
  • Gifts for her || stocking stuffers under $25– This was a weird one to make the list, especially since it came so late in the year! But it makes me happy because I love putting together this post annually!
  • Posypaper planner– This is still my favorite planner that I’ve used thus far. I’m trying a new one this year… wish me luck!
  • Introducing Dirty Hippy Swag– It warms my heart that this one made the list! So proud of my friend Marisa for designing her own line!
  • WCW: Sophie Pyle of Rosé Media– I have a feeling that this one has been viewed so many times because the subject has her own media company (and knows everyone in DC). Also her sister shared it. Sophie gets a lot of love 😉
  • Buyer beware– This one actually surprised me! I thought it was kind of a ranty mess but I guess others trying to scope out a weird scam situation have stumbled upon it and I guess that was kind of the point!
  • Left behind– I wrote this post after a classmate of mine passed. His funeral hit me really, really hard. I want to give a huge heartfelt thank you to every person who read or shared this. I just hope it can be of some help to other siblings who have lost siblings
  • I CHECKED YES– My engagement announcement seemed to mean the most to you all as well! It was truly a magical way to start off the year and I can’t wait until April when I finally get to be Mrs. Caroline Suzanne Downing Price.

I’d love to hear about your top moment from 2017!

I’ve got my eye on…

Not sure if it’s fair to say I’ve got my eye on them since I already bought them with some Christmas money from my gramma but I can’t wait for my Zeke Booties to come in! via DSW

I know it’s listed as nursery décor, but I would seriously love this deer print for our bedroom! Would it be weird to register for it? via DannyBStudios

Literally every bride I have asked has told me I don’t need a wedding purse. But I so love this Dyed cotton clutch… and everything else in this shop. via DDSLLGirlsStore

Paris Hilton, a personal fave of mine (jokingly, kind of) has come out with a rose water spray called Unicorn Mist and I must have it.

 

Don’t forget you can always peek at my wish list over in my sidebar. Here’s what I’m currently craving:

Around the internet

If you’re not big on Ultra Violet, no worries. Here are the biggest color trends we have coming at us for 2018. via Popsugar

I downloaded the Wish App but have yet to pull the trigger on actually buying anything. I’ve been researching reviews because the prices seem too good to be true a la those fast fashion websites based in China. I found a pretty decent review on YouTube where Julia Elise reviews a variety of items. Bottom line- you get what you pay for and pay attention to the dimensions.

Will we look back on 2017 trends with the same love/ hate with which we look back on the early 2000s? Only time will tell. But what do you think of these 10 Fashion Trends That Need to Die in 2017? (My personal opinion is wear what you want and you can pry my cold shoulder tops and dresses out of my cold, dead little paws.) via Cosmopolitan

Happy Friday before Christmas! The shopping is done, the presents are (almost) all wrapped, and I cannot wait to celebrate with my family! Tomorrow Kendall and I have brunch with some besties and we’re seeing The Nutcracker at night with my mom and some church friends. Sunday we have midnight 9 o’clock mass, which is a favorite tradition of mine. What are you favorite Christmas traditions?

Leopard Print Wrapping Paper

Lately on The CaroLøve

I’ve got my eye on…

I will probably be talking about the Rivington Convertible Flap Petrol Backpack until I somehow obtain it. So gorgeous, so versatile, so out of my budget.

The deep emerald of this Tasseled Tie Bishop Sleeve Embroidered Velvet Dress totally caught my attention!

I already got my 2018 planner (COMING TO THE BLOG NEXT WEEK AND I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!) but if I hadn’t found mine I think this Design Your Life® 2018 Planner is adorable!

Don’t forget you can always peek at my wish list over in my sidebar. Here’s what I’m currently craving:

 

Around the internet

Roxanne gives a little insight into what it’s like being Jewish at Christmas.

If you saw my Insta-stories last week you’ll know I was RULL excited for Wawa to come into town. I wasn’t the only one. via The Washington Post

This is a long one, but worth the read. I was in third grade when Titanic came out. I saw in theaters and begged to leave. It gave me nightmares for months and I still can’t watch the whole thing. Never has another movie fascinated and terrified me in such a way. Here’s the The Insane True Story Of How “Titanic” Got Made. via Buzzfeed

My look is striped t-shirt dress, one piece of statement jewelry, and go. I adore that Arianna Huffington is a proponent of the repeat outfit for work.  via Quartz at Work

Happy Friday! Last weekend was so full of love and excitement and this one will be too! Tonight is my work holiday dinner, tomorrow morning is a Friendsmas Brunch at Lavagna, and then I’m going back to Laytonsville so that Kendall and I have some separate time to wrap presents!

I’ve got my eye on…

Essie inspired earrings! Yes- the nail polish! How amazing is this idea? via SizzInWonderland

Ok so maybe it’s just because this cold and then extreme heat indoors has made me itchy and dry but I’ve been craving body butter. And Saturday Morning Cereal Whipped Body Butter sounds delicious! via UniquelyMebyVee 

Because of a rather embarrassing breakout problem around my neck + chest, I’ve been wearing more statement earrings than necklaces recently. 2 Pairs of Tassel Dangle Earrings for under $10? That sounds like a steal! via Amazon

Don’t forget you can always peek at my wish list over in my sidebar. Here’s what I’m currently craving:

 

Around the internet

There’s a Jonathan Adler candle I actually registered for that seems to be sold out. Turns out, Pier 1 has a dupe. Check out their Vanilla Bourbon Cocktail Filled Candle!

If you saw any of my pics from the gorgeous Winter Wonderland Bridal Luncheon my Aunt Jule threw me, you can tell I don’t shy away from a sequin. All of the snaps to Katie for pulling off the bold sequin legging look!

Despite my mom’s wishes, I used loooove watching The Simpsons with my dad. Now that I’m older, I can appreciate some of the humor I didn’t get when I was little PLUS I can understand the cultural and social references that went over my head. I find it fascinating when The Simpsons predicts the future. Guess what- it happened again! via MSN

I feel like there are two camps at Christmas: those who love eggnog and those who do not. It’s not the ONLY Christmas cocktail, you know. I found 40 easy holiday cocktails to please everyone on your naughty and nice lists. via Delish

Happy first Friday in December! Kendall and I are decorating our little tree this weekend. I can’t wait! I’m also doing a little adventure with Dani to Sarah‘s engagement party and on Sunday there’s cat yoga at Crumbs & Whiskers with a long lost pal! This weekend is so full of love I can’t stand it!

Baby It’s Cold Outside Print & T-Shirt

Lately on The CaroLøve:

There’s a HUGE sale in my Etsy shop today only: 50% off all digital prints (excluding custom work). Because they are digital, you can download and use the designs for shirts, journals, cards, etc. No code needed!

Speaking of my little shop, one of my prints has found a home on Sarah’s bar cart!

I LOVE Brea’s style (in fact, Kendall had to stop me from running off with her jacket one crazy night at Hawthorne) and her vacation style for Cuba was too fun!

I also sold my first shirt from my Zazzle shop! My Stella & Dot stylist (and friend) Erica customized the Topknot Mascara Coffee Tee and I can’t wait to see her rock it!

If you’re looking for glam-y beauty & body gifts, check out my Sissy’s LimeLight by Alcone goodies! I ordered a couple things for Christmas gifting yesterday. She uses the products herself and with her family, so I know I can trust them!

The Jack Rogers duck boots I loved last year (but never bought) are half the original price at Lord & Taylor.

I was browsing Nordstrom for gifts for my office holiday dinner and I came across these most adorable pajams. I like the gingerbread set myself- what’s your fave?
