Felicia was eager to show us what’s at the top of her Christmas list. She is obsessed with this darling shirt and vest combo from Ariat! The Ariat Ideal Down Vest keeps her core cozy while the Ariat V-neck Sepia long sleeve tee shows of a fun print under the vest and acts as a great base layer.

Julianne in customer service also couldn’t wait to show us her top pick this season. She fell in LOVE with the Barbour Tack Fedora the minute it came out of the box. She loves that it’s fashion forward, and accents her style perfectly! We have to admit, she’s got a fabulous sense of style, this fedora sells out every year, no matter how many we order!

Meanwhile Kaytlin over in our shipping department found her self drawn to the Barbour Torridon Tartan Hold All bag. Stylish and the perfect size for a quick weekend away or packing up kiddo essentials for an afternoon with Nana.
