current obsession wednesday: autumn blazers, structured jackets.


i will not give up.

i will find myself a kohl's and find me a lauren conrad blazer (not the black one, the gray patterned one that i've been adoring for weeks now).i didn't think about it until earlier today when i was whining to mom that there wasn't a kohl's in our town, mom said why don't you just order it from online? duh, ilene. so i check kohl's online and of course, they no longer have my size. i will keep doing my research to find the nearest kohl's. so thankful for google. 

in other news...


i finally, finally found my my sought-after colored tights! mom and i hit up a couple of department stores tonight. i still had some b-day money and gift cards and was determined to find the right color tights that i had in mind. i still have yet to find a mustard-yellow pair...bu oh, man, i got a little nutty. i bought a raspberry shade (refer to photo above), bright canary yellow, two different shades of gray, and jet black. and of course, the perfect colored tights need some perfect shoes to go with them...and so i happened to stumble upon those adorable ruffley shoes (again, refer to photo above). never thought i'd say this, but i can't wait for the temperature to drop down just a smidge colder so i can wear out this colorful trend! 

and speaking of the drop in temperatures, South Carolina finally has gotten down below 70 degrees in the past week. we even hit a low 60s/high 50s the other day. i actually wore long-sleeves to church. besides the lauren conrad blazer hunt, especially during this time of year, my eye is particularly drawn to...

autumn blazers and structured jackets
with both delicate and/or bold details and patterns.
there are so many good ones out there. seriously so many.
and what i love about blazers are the layers and the accessories 
that can go with them, you know? 
you can have a ton of fun with them.

  10. Lately I've been obsessing over fingerless gloves!! Up here in the Midwest, it's a little too warm for actual gloves but a little too cool for nothing at all. I think I have about 4 pairs now ;-)
