Old Lady Gifts
When I was a little girl, I remember watching my older relatives open their gifts on Christmas and birthdays, and being horrified that they were getting such boring gifts as clothes. I remember thinking to myself, "I am never going to ask for anything but toys ever!"
How the times have changed. I love my "old lady" gifts. My family was very generous this year, and gave me some of my favorite things.
My new favorite scent is Jo Malone's French Lime Blossom. I originally bought her Vintage Gardenia scent a few months ago, and the SA threw some samples of various other scents in my bag. When I got home, I opened a few of the samples, and fell in love with French Lime Blossom. It's so fresh without being overly floral.
Just over a month ago, I saw the film Friends with Benefits, and I immediately noticed Mila Kunis's chunky gold watch. I'm not normally a gold person, but I loved how masculine it looked. I may or may not have showed my mom several examples of gold watches and hinted strongly that one would make a good birthday gift.
And the ultimate old lady gift-slippers! At least they are dainty though, right?
*My dress in the top picture was also a birthday gift, purchased at Anthropologie. However, it hardly qualifies as old lady-esque. It's my new favorite dress. I cannot wait for summer to really get here so I can wear it all the time.
