Favorite Things by #2

I asked my #2 to do a Favorite Things post.  And just like the perfect daughter that she is, she happily complied.  You're perfect too, #1, and I will spread the word if you write a post for your old Mama too!

*****



Warby Parker eyeglasses. The only lenses I want to look through. These are beyond cute.  They're even cuter in person.  We visited the shop on Newbury Street.





If you can't tell, I have a bit of a fetish for tortoise shell glasses.

*****

Two things: Tory Burch and home. Never before has Tory designed for the home; until now. The new line premiered this week. 






*****

Of all the things on my list, this is the one that I truly gotta-have.



*****


This is my favorite time of year for one reason: sweet scented candles. If I could fill my room with Bath & Body Works scented candles I would. Then again, I would also set fire to my apartment. And that wouldn't be good.






*****


I'm including this scarf  just to drive my mom a little crazy. No, I am not a cat person, but I love the idea of them and their adorable pictures, therefore, this scarf is my first obsession. It is an adorable scarf all wrapped up and, as if it couldn't get any better, when unraveled there's a lovely cat portrait. 





*****
This Patagonia pullover. 
I live in Virginia. Virginia is cold. Therefore, I need to get this. Right?

*****

Phillip Lim for Target sweater, now in stores. And, yes, that is a bedazzled collar. But in the most perfect way possible.



Because I definitely don't have enough purses… this is one of Phillip Lim's for Target. It's $55. That's basically like giving it away.


*****








One of my favorite stores, Madewell,  that has lots of my favorite things.

Thanks, #2, for a fabulous list of your favorite things!!


This is my new view from Blog Central for the next 3 weeks.  It looks so much prettier at night!





Hope your weekend is filled with all of your favorite things!!

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.

  2. Love your view from your temporary perch Katie. This has been such a big move. Glad you've invested in some pieces to keep you warm and toasty. You will need them. The shopping will be so fab in Boston.
    Enjoy!

  4. Okay- WHERE are you,Katie? I love #2's picks! One of my kids has something with those party animals on it- SOOO funny.
    Bed, Bath & Beyond has a candle called Cinnamon and Clove Buds and it makes you feel like you have been baking all day. They can't keep them in stock so I buy them early. I got one for each girl for a stocking stuffer-gonna give it to them early for St. Nick's Day- xo Diana
