current obsession wednesday: a little bit of everything (and oh, my s-bucks drink. finally.)

i finally got it.
my starbucks drink.

i have craved one since i left chicago. there aren't as many starbucks at every corner where i live now. but surprise, surprise (i even surprised myself), i didn't go for my pumpkin spice latte that i have been craving for weeks. instead i went with one of my regular autumn faves, caramel apple cidar. love it, esp. with the extra caramel. oh, baby, it was to die for. i enjoyed every drop of it.

enough about my cravings (i feel like i talk about my cravings and food all the time here). let's move onto current obsessions wednesday, folks! i go again with another super random current obsessions list. i don't have a particular obsession this week. rather i've had different spouts of autumn pieces that i've kept my fashion eye on the look-out for. every have weeks like that? i keep seeing lots and lots of pieces on blogs or in magazines that i keep oohing and aahing over. to name a few...

polka dots:

isn't rachel bilson's polka dot scarf
so adorable?
i'm not even a huge fan of baby pink but i love this!

me and my tights/leggings obsessions, so of course i'm digging these.

lace, lace, and more lace:

i love the autumn colors of these lacey pieces.
they both would look great with ankle boots OR knee high ones, i think.

boyfriend blazer:

note that i did not say boyfriend blazers. note that it is singular - due to the fact i'm obsessed with this particularly this one. we don't have a kohl's close to my house but i plan to find one in the nearby city 'cause every since sandy highlighted this collection on her blog, i have wanted this exact blazer.

i love the neutral-trend going on right now,
but i'd be perfectly content with a pair of black platforms too.

off-the-shoulder look:

i love how off-the-shoulder works with a pair of jeans or a mini-skirt.
dress-it up or down, it works! i love this look especially in black.

speak now single:

anyone else loving the new single from taylor swift?
yeah anytime i find a song i like, i tend to be that annoying roommate that plays it over and over and over again. yea, this song is doing just that very thing right now.

how about you, friend?
what is your current obsession this week?

and hey, it's wednesday! are you so glad? or are you feeling like this week is a drag? i remember when i worked full-time, i'd either love wednesday or hate it, depending on the pace of the week. i'm totally loving this week since it's been so wonderful to spend time with ryan's family. today, i head back home to SC. i'm sad to say "see you later" to ryan and his family for now, but i'm looking forward to being back with my family. wish i could have both in one place, but it ain't so right now. i have no complaints - the weekend has been great and now i look forward to spending more time with my family! love it.

[happy wednesday, friend!]
