Show and Tell: Want, Need, Wear, Read

Show and Tell Tuesday Graphic 2017

It's been a few months since I linked up  with Andrea from MomFessionals who hosts a link up where we show and tell you something. This month the topic is Want, Need, Wear, Read. I am using this as sort of a Christmas list and gift guide.

This one is a little tough for me, because I don't really know what I want or need this holiday season. We literally just got the furniture into our basement renovation this weekend, through the window after a failed attempt to get it down the stairs, so I feel like so much is focused on finishing this level of house. Now it's time to take a break and have a little fun with this post.


Candle Lanterns

I love led candles and they have come a long way in the last ten years. So many of them look so real. When I was coming up with ideas for the family room design elements, Running Daddy and I decided we would do a greige paint with soft blue accents. There is currently a lot of blue/grey in our house, but I don't care because it is such a Good color combination. I thought some silver accents would add some fun to the room, so I am currently looking for some very tall candle lanterns to add to the floor area around the fireplace. I would like to add some similar black lanterns to the living room fireplace area.

Here are some options I like:

I also want some new blankets for the family room. We are such a blanket family. While the ones we had from before the renovation are sill fine, I think a new one would Better pull the look together. Here are a few that I like and both happen to be on sale:

I think I need a new robe. I pretty much only wear a robe when I get out of the shower, but mine is several years old and it might be time for a new one. I have a summer robe that is cute and still in Good condition. Here is one that I like that might be Better for the cooler months.

This is going to be a mix of things that I am currently wearing and then a few things that I have seen lately that I really love.  

Casual looks can be a little tricky this time of year but here are a few things that I am wearing on repeat on the weekends.

I wore this to a party a few weeks ago when I knew we were going to be outside for a bit. This faux fur vest is just the Best as it provides warms but it is also so fun. This total look is all on sale right now if you want to add it to your Santa list or wear for a holiday event!

I also just bought these cords in boysenberry and a similar pair by cAbi in the same color as below. I think they are going to be a Good alternative to jeans on the weekend. These are also on an amazing sale.

This skirt may end up on my Christmas list as it is so fantastic and I think it could even be a Good business look.

If you are looking for a Good read, or have a friend that could really use some encouragement during this holiday season, go ahead and pre-order If You Only Knew by Jamie Ivey. While the book will not be out until the end of January, you can pre-order right now, right here. I am so happy to be part of the launch team and this book is so Good. While I read it over a month ago, there are parts that are still resonating with me.

Ok, now it's your turn! Tell me in the comments what you are going to Want, Need, Wear and Read this holiday season.


  1. all the coziness in this post makes me want to curl up under a blanket and watch Hallmark all day! :) That leather skirt, too, is fabulous!
