“He’s making a list, and checking it twice…gonna find out who’s naughty and nice. Santa Claus is coming to town!” And hopefully, I’m on the nice list, because I went a little overboard with my wishlist here. Haha.

I seriously can’t believe Christmas is just over a month away…especially since it just keeps getting hotter and hotter here! But when Shop Splash reached out to me about putting together a wishlist, I knew I wanted to start thinking about what I would wear over the holidays – especially NYE! I am still trying to figure out what exactly I will be doing for NYE, but regardless, it’s going to be crazy considering I’ll be in Sydney for it this year! (And we get to celebrate it well before most of the world with some crazy fireworks!)

So, this wishlist will be some potential NYE/Christmas outfits…and one or two things I really, really want for no particular reason whatsoever. (We all have to have some of those things now and again, right?)


Even though it’s getting hotter and hotter here, it’s still windier than heck most days. So, I’m still loving longer dresses and skirts to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. And bonus points for this skirt being sparkly! Perfect for the holiday season!

Oh, fit and flare dresses… how I love thee. I also love the floral details and the high neckline! While this would work perfectly for me as a holiday party dress, I think it would look lovely with a pair of tights for folks actually getting some Christmas-like weather right now too!

I am absolutely loving all things ruffle lately. I’ve been terrified for some reason, though, it actually buy anything with ruffles. However, I think this top would be just subtle enough for me to feel comfortable wearing it.

And why get a top if you don’t have any fun pants to wear it with?! Again, I’ve been loving palazzo pants, but I’ve been way too chicken to actually try them out for myself. I think I just haven’t found the right pair yet…but boy, do these red ones look fun!

This dress would be a good New Year’s Eve “day” dress. I’m likely going to spend the day portion near or on a beach…and what could be more perfect than this dress? (Unless jet lag is still kicking my butt from flying back to Wisconsin for Christmas…then I’ll be wearing some cute PJs on my couch. Haha.)

I don’t need another pair of Quay sunglasses. I don’t need another pair of Quay sunglasses. I don’t need another pair of Quay sunglasses. But ahhhh…I’m addicted! I just ordered two more pairs off ModCloth‘s site (thanks to that big sale last weekend), but now I see these fun white ones and I really, really want a white pair too! Sigh.

Ok, admittedly, this look is a little bit risqué for my taste…but I’m still drawn to it. It’s the skirt, with the ruffles and sheerness and lace details that has my heart going pitter-patter. The top portion I would swap out for something that wouldn’t require me to go sans bra or wear a strapless bra (neither of which I’m a fan of). It would also balance out the risquéness of the skirt if I paired a more solid black top with it!

Just a reminder: I’m currently sweating my butt off hiking and riding camels in the desert over in Uluru. Sorry for not being terribly active on social media or replying to comments. I’ll be back to business as usual on Monday! Hope you all have a great weekend!

Which piece was your favorite? And do you have your holiday outfits picked out already? Let me know in the comments!

      Thank you, Richa! Haha and that’s all my budget will allow right now too…and actually not even those, as I went way overboard with my Black Friday/Cyber Monday shopping lol. I’ll have to wait awhile to replenish the shopping budget, haha. 😉
