Field Notes

Field Notes

Happy Friday! It's so hard to believe that Christmas is next weekend. I have one last gift to get, and then I'm done with the shopping. I've been wrapping gifts along the way, so I'm in pretty good shape prep-wise. Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

WEARING...down vests. We have some strange weather in Dallas right now. Yesterday was in the 40s, today we'll be up in the 70s and by Sunday we'll have highs in the 20s. Make up your mind, Mother Nature. Although I'll be all bundled up come Sunday, I love a good down vest for when it's chilly out. This one is a current favorite.

COVETING...fun sneakers. Sneakers have become a staple of mine (especially the slip on variety) and I've truly never met a pom pom I don't love. I'm wondering if I could pull off this pair. Are the pom poms too much?

LAUNCHED...The Girl Guide. I had so much fun working on this fashion blog on Squarespace. 

LOOKING FOR...a new moisturizer. I just finished my jar of this and liked it ok, but I'm looking for something new. I have dry skin, and with a birthday later this month, could use something to tackle these fine lines. Any suggestions? (I'm interested in this one, I think.)

WRAPPING...Christmas gifts. I am such a sucker for wrapping paper. Loving this jingle bell version so much.

WATCHING...The Man in the High Castle. I'm just getting started, but have heard it's really fascinating. It's quite different from the Gilmore Girls binge I just finished. (I'm totally #TeamJess, btw.)

SENDING...my Christmas cards. I dropped them off at the post office yesterday. I'll share them here soon! (In the meantime, how pretty are these?)

RECCOMENDING...Revlon kiss balm. I wear these every day -- I like that I can apply them without a mirror. The add a bit of color and moisture, but feel like I'm not wearing anything at all. (My pick: the berry burst.)
