Birthday Wishlist

In just a few days, September 1st, to be exact, I will begin my birthday festivities.  I say “begin” because I like to draw out my celebrating as long as humanly possible (i.e., however long I can convince the other human in my household, hubby, that he should be showering me with gifts).  And this year, just after my birthday, we’re jetting off to NYC for New York Fashion Week – a clear sign that my birthday celebrations should last well into a week of New York fun.  So this year’s aspirational birthday wishlist is NYFW-inspired.  And of course, friends and family – feel free to take note.

At the top of my shopping wishlist:  1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6
