my 26th wishlist.

I'll admit it. I have an ultimate wish list. It's fluid--and it changes all the time. As I turn 26 this weekend {and quietly mourn the fact my 20s are halfway through}, I have a few things on my "ultimate" wishlist for my birthday this Sunday. As you've learned from my Friday's Fancies posts, I dream big. If money were no object, this is what you'd find on my 26th birthday wishlist:


This year, on my ultimate birthday wishlist, you'd find:
-a pair of Christian Louboutin Décolleté 100 jazz pumps {to elevate my style for years}
-front row seats to a full summer tour for John Mayer {to fulfill my inner groupie}**
-unlimited flying abilities on US Airways {for jetsetting wherever my heart desires}**
-a Sarah Wallet from Louis Vuitton {to have a forever stylish wallet}
-these Lapis Studs from Kate Spade {for my growing collection of cobalt}
I'll be honest, I know the John Mayer wish is pretty lofty {i.e. unachievable}. If {cv} were a pilot, my jetsetting heart could be filled--but alas, he works at a desk, so that's probably out of the picture too. Regardless, it's fun to dream! I can't wait to hear what makes your list!

Have a fantastic Wednesday! xoxo {av}

  1. Have you seen JM in concert? I have been 5 or 6 times, and it never gets old. He is SO amazing live -- I am the girl screaming the lyrics and standing on her chair that everyone hates (but I can't help myself!).

    Sounds like such a perfect birthday!Loving those KS earrings!!

  3. Wait. When I met you I thought you were 22. 23 (my age), maybe. Happy, happy birthday! Never ever would I have guessed you were about to turn 26. What is your secret?!

    I saw John Mayer with Eric Clapton in Bryant Park once and it was the best concert of my life!

  4. Awesome list! I saw JM my freshman year of college and it's still one of my favorite concerts that I've been to!

  5. CL's would definitely make my list. And I also would add a little bungalow on the beach that has a wrap around porch and a hammock that looks out to the ocean...so I can listen to the waves while I enjoy my coffee and nightcap;)

  15. I'm a complete John Mayer groupie and he's sooo good live! I saw him in NYC last summer with a friend and he was amazing. Sadly, we weren't in the front row though.

  16. First of all, happy (early) birthday! I try not to think too much about my wishlist since I'm in saving mode! But if money were no object, I'd LOVE a brownstone in brooklyn or in the west village, a trip to Europe and these chanel riding boots I've been obsessed with.

  17. Love your picks!! Happy Early Birthday...my husband's 28th is tomorrow! Eek! :)

  18. I've seen John Mayer in concert twice. He is soooooo good when he sings live! But you might not want to see him so up-close... he makes weird moves with his mouth when he sings & it's kinda awkward. Haha!

  19. Shoot - I was hoping for just such a wish list to be posted but unfortunately these far exceed my budget too! 2 days.... :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Happy early birthday love! What a great list - and I especially love the lapis studs. They are so unique. Any big party plans?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Unlimited flights would definitely be on my wishlist too, along with a French bulldog and perhaps a pretty new horse to ride around :) A girl can dream, right?

    ReplyDelete
  22. i totally agree about the "nice" wallet...every woman should have one. :)
    and the cobalt babies are so BEAUTIFUL!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Happy early birthday!!
    I must ask, though-- how did you get into my mind to make that wishlist?!

    ReplyDelete
  24. What a divine list! John always complains that I don't have a wishlist, and while it sounds crazy, it's true! But I'd happily take a hint from yours and give one a whirl!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Not going to lie, when I read this my first thought was, "OMG John Mayer announced tour dates and I didn't know about it??" so then I had to immediately check his website haha. I wouldn't mind front row for his entire tour :)

    Happy early birthday!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ooooh, that LV wallet is a must on every wishlist!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Happy Birthday! Mine is on Saturday and I'm totally needing to create a wish list like this! Hope your day is fantastic!

  29. great wishlist! the louboutins are an excellent pick.

    my musical taste is always changing though, and i think knowing that i saw bob dylan live (even though i couldn't understand him) will forever satisfy me. :)

  30. Love the wishlist! The cobalt earrings are gorgeous and you can never go wrong with a pair of loubs :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I definitely want a pair of Christian Louboutins! And a loft in Paris. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Please, please get the loubs. They were one of the most worthwhile investments in my closet and I haven't bought another pair of black pumps since. Oh, and those cobalt studs are adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I definitely have an ultimate wish list tucked back... just in case. haha. I hope you had a great birthday!

  34. The unlimited flights would pre-tty-sweet. If you're dreaming big, make sure they're first class. Though I've never been, in dream world, I'm sure it's awesome!
