West Elm Holiday

Last Thursday I got the chance to tour West Elm with a few other bloggers and get acquainted with the new Market collection as well as the holiday items. I hadn't been in the store in a few months so it was fun to get to browse (and enjoy a yummy Trophy cupcake!). The Market collection is really beautiful and feels very back-to-basics. Simple, classic designs. It was great to shop it in person (I got a totally different impression from the catalog).

Like this fridge - smaller than I realized, but cute as a button.

I'd love a teapot in this same matte black glaze and simple style.




Elsewhere in the store, festive holiday and entertaining treasures caught my eye.



This raffia tray is on my Christmas list (fingers crossed, or I have a West Elm trip planned for 12/26!)... IMG_1382



Perfect for a New Year's toast! Flutes and wine glasses available.

And since I know you're dying to know (ha!), this is what  I wore...


New two-tone (navy and black) heels with skinny dark denim (Target!), gingham and cozy oversize cardigan (both J Crew), patent chartreuse belt (Target) and new purse. This gingham shirt has gotten a TON of wear since I picked it up in September. Makes for perfect layering.

See anything that Santa should bring you? Still a few days to let "him" know!
