Welcome to this week’s Wednesday Watch List, where I share the random things that captured my attention and stole my heart over the past week!

1 – Instagram is by far my favorite social platform nowadays, since I feel like too many of the original ones have veered from their initial purpose. It can still frustrate me at times, but I feel like I enjoy so many of the connections over there. If you’re looking for a new, inspirational and beautiful feed to follow, I’ve been finding so much joy in the @hillhousevintage account! Paula’s account is filled with life in the English countryside, along with so much whimsy and humor and beauty. She also seems like the type of person you immediately want to be friends with in real life!
2 – Target is currently offering buy one, get one 50% off sweaters right now for women and men! They have so many cute styles so I decided to order this one and this one over the weekend. They arrived last night and are both so cute! I’m also loving their new customer photos feature. So helpful to see items on women of all shapes and sizes and not just the models!
This Cozy Rib Pullover Sweater is so unique with the horizontal ribbing. And to be honest, I wouldn’t have tried it without seeing the customer photos. The sleeves are a dolman style, and it’s definitely more on the cropped side for us taller girls. But with high-waisted jeans, it’s perfect! This one runs true to size.
The Crewneck Cable Stitch Sweater is so cozy! The sleeves are a balloon style and this one just screams fall and winter to me. I love a good cableknit! This one runs a bit big, so I’d order down if you’re between sizes. I got my usual size Large and I like the fit!
3 – Nordstrom recently launched their Top Holiday Gifts section and it’s always one of my favorites to peruse each year! They break down the gift ideas into so many categories and there are always so many creative finds! I also love to use it for my own personal wishlist! The stocking stuffers section is a favorite of mine to raid to get smaller & more affordable versions of products I’ve been wanting to try. It’s like the old Sears & JC Penney catalogues back in the day, but for adults (or really anyone, pets included)! Sets like this hand cream trio are perfect to gift as is, or to break up and use as teacher gifts, to throw in your purse or car or place in different bathrooms! And speaking of gifts, I’m hoping to share my gift guides starting in another week or two!
4 – Okay, I know many of you were anxiously awaiting word on the Amazon tree versus the Wayfair tree. I originally thought they were one in the same, but they’re definitely different. Not in a bad way, there’s just features you need to know about based upon what you’re looking for! I did tons of multiple Instagram Stories yesterday (with more info than you’ll probably ever want to know). If you click here, I’ve saved all the stories on the tree in the circle that says “Christmas Trees” and has a close-up of branches and the lights. I’ll leave it up through the holidays in case you ever want to reference it.
The Amazon Version is definitely bigger (width wise) and has larger branch tips. It’s also a bit airier, but I like that the “trunk” is sprayed on versus wrapped like the Wayfair version. For $189 difference in price, it’s hard to argue with the Amazon version (look at all the those customer reviews and photos), but if price weren’t a factor, the Wayfair one would slide into my favorite spot! I’m still planning to keep the Amazon one, so I’m excited to see how it looks once it’s fully decorated!
Again, I apologize for originally thinking they were the same tree. The stock photos are nearly identical and they’re the same brand, height, and light count. But definitely do have some differences!
5 – Loving this plaid fringe pillow! So affordable and it also comes in a cute brown/cream color combo. This is another one where the customer photos really help to see it styled in a real space! I think they could both transition beautifully from fall to holidays to winter!
