Yesterday, we cabbed down to Rockefeller Center to take in the ice skaters and then walked up Fifth Avenue to enjoy all the windows. (Bergdorf’s are always the best! If you make it up here for the holidays, put that on your list.) The excursion was cold and blustery but magical — and it put me right into the holiday mood. I’ve been playing White Christmas on our kitchen TV and listening to holiday music non-stop since. I also pulled out the children’s Christmas pajamas last night and mini, my grandmother, and I decorated a gingerbread house together. In short, I’m ready for Christmas, especially owning to the incredible sale The Beaufort Bonnet Company has running: 40% off everything, plus free shipping. I bought mini these Christmas jammies and micro these but might go back for more — these are precious for spring! This is also my favorite time to stock up on basics like this peter pan collar shirt and this ruffle collar style (mini owns both of these already and wears them constantly — they use a wonderful pima cotton and they hold up well). Mini already owns several jumpers, including a tartan one, but this might have to come home with us too!
A few other things to know about:
+This fleece-lined cableknit sweater is 50% off — only $15!!! Ordered for mini.
+We used the 20% promotion at Williams-Sonoma to buy this coffee machine. We have (or I should say Mr. Magpie has) been making exclusively pour over coffee for years in our house but have been talking about how nice it would be to have something easier for us both to use during our hectic weekday mornings / when we have company / when we need an afternoon pick-me-up. So excited for ours to arrive! Comes in fantastic colors but we want with the stark white.
+30% off this precious wicker stroller I’ve wanted for mini forever.
+Still swooning over all the La Coqueta pieces on sale…this dress for the fourth of July, this romper for micro for next summer, this sweet playsuit to hang on to as a baby gift! I always jump on their sales to buy for the next season as they happen so infrequently.
+Absolutely dying over these shoes for the holidays…
