Caroline Diani’s Holiday Wish List

This time of year I find myself coveting a collection of favorites that make up my annual holiday wish list (hint, hint Jeffrey). I’ve had my eye on many of these special pieces since my buying trips earlier in the year and when they arrive in the store, they’re even better than I remembered. From the perfect statement suit and cozy cashmere scarf to my favorite Ayurvedic wellness oils and sparkly statement heels, let’s hope I’m on Santa’s nice list.


I can’t get enough of the Long Notched Shawl Blazer and Blocked Flood Pant from Smythe. The silhouette is relaxed, yet chic and the camouflage leopard print is bold enough to make a statement without being too over the top. I love that I can also wear these pieces separately, like the blazer with denim and a tee or the pant with a basic sweater. The versatility is a win win for me.

Handwoven from the softest purest cashmere, The Cloud Scarf in Hare from Jane Carr is the ultimate luxurious holiday gift that never disappoints. I love the two-toned color palette and reversible style, it goes with everything in my wardrobe.

Sunglasses are a year-around staple in California, so having a few different pairs is essential. We just received dozens of amazing new styles from Oliver Peoples, but the vintage-inspired Remick Sunglasses in Taupe Mirror are my favorite.

I’m often transitioning from work to dinner out and the Laurel Twist Mule in Pewter by Loeffler Randall  is just the shoe to get me in the mood. The sparkle metallic sheen instantly elevates any look, plus they’re comfortable enough to wear into the night.

Adding the right accessory to an outfit can really make it shine. I’m a sucker for gold bracelets and these luxe ones from The Woods Fine Jewelry are at the top of my wish list. I love their ability to instantly elevate any look, from jeans and a tee to a simple silk dress. Call to order, 1.877.342.6474.

When it comes to beauty and wellness I’m a firm believer in healing from the inside out, which is why I absolutely love UMA Oils. Crafted from pure botanical oils, these highly coveted Ayurvedic products are tailored to address the stressors and ailments we face in the modern world. As someone who is always on the go, applying the UMA Pure Bliss and UMA Pure Energy oils is a form of self care and something I look forward to on a daily basis.

I know how hard it’s to find an organic, all natural deodorant that works. I’m happy to report that the Deo Stick by Susanne Kaufmann is my all-time favorite. It has a pleasant, refreshing scent and calming properties that make it sensitive skin-friendly too.

Since I live a mostly-vegan lifestyle, when I prepare meals at home I love using the Deliciously Ella cookbook for delicious and nourishing recipes. One of my favorites is the Mexican Quinoa Bowl, I could eat it everyday.

During the holiday season, I’m always on the hunt for festive table linens. Our newest Napkins in Equinoxe Natural are crafted from the finest French linen and weave in subtle metallic accents that are perfect for holiday hosting.

Designing custom pillows for DIANI Living is one of my favorite parts about my job. I love discovering new fabrics in florals and grain sack, but this African Mud Cloth Pillow in Black is one of my all time favorites.
