So…I didn’t get any of the Mother’s Day/birthday suggestions I made last month! Clearly my husband is not reading our blog with any regularity. However, I did get a very lovely Mother’s Day gift, a chance to sleep in and a wonderful breakfast made by said husband so I am in no way complaining. It was a perfect second Mother’s Day. Over this past weekend my husband asked me what I wanted for my birthday and asked to keep it under $500. That’s fair. It’s not a special birthday and since we are expecting again at the end of the summer, we have a lot of additional expenses we were not planning on. What can I say? This little nugget was an unexpected, but pleasant surprise!
Hmm, I had to give this some thought. What would I really like that costs less than $500? I came up with five plausible options:
We did a post on espadrilles last month and ever since I could not get these out of my mind. I know my husband would never buy me a pair of shoes, but I still would love these. As much as I love the super high wedge style that is trendy right now, they scare me when I am this pregnant. I need to be a little closer to the ground as I feel my balance is a bit off and these fit the bill. I love this shade of navy.
2. Tiffany Locks Vintage Lock Pendant, $350
Two years ago I had to have a Tiffany Key and now I love the lock. But only the two-tone one. I don’t care if it’s with yellow or rose gold, I just know I want the medium sized one. Tiffanys has a HUGE selection of locks starting at very little for the small silver version.
I am admittedly obsessed right now with rose gold. Since I know this is a trend this is about as much as I would spend on a watch. The Michael Kors version is my favorite.
I already own a gold snake cuff, but it’s huge and I seldom wear it. This bracelet is more of an every day staple. I am sure I would wear it to death.
I know this style is so four years ago, but when it comes to shades, I feel you need to pick what looks best on your face rather than the hottest trend. I have tried these on. Numerous times. I would really love a pair in dark brown. Or black.
Now, could someone PLEASE send this link to my husband? I will report back if I get any of the above. Wish me luck!
