current obsession wednesday: gloves, mittens and everything in between!!

my wish came true.

the SOUTH was finally hit with some cool, autumn weather. 

call me crazy. i'm calling myself crazy. back in chicago, i would have killed for warmer weather like we were having last week. you held on to any bit of warm/hot/steamy weather that you could 'cause the last thing any chicagoan wanted was that bitter, painful cold winters of the windy city.

but lately being here in SC, there was a part of me that wished for the cool weather to go along with the autumn months. tank tops and sandals started to get old esp. when you know its the time of the year to bundle up in some sweaters and enjoy some hot apple cidar.  

so yesterday i wore my bright, yellow tights. as crazy-bright as they may look, they made me so happy and so warm 'cause it was so cool and crisp outside. even got to pair it with a comfy purple sweater. mmm, love it.

and speaking of cold weather...
 i can't help but think about all the layers and fun accessories that come with it, 
including my current obsessions: 
gloves, mittens, and everything in between!

i think i'm esp. obsessed with the anthro one's and maybe even the modcloth one with the cupcakes. surprise, surprise right? i also love fingerless gloves. i know, most people think they are pointless since your fingers peek out and all but i think they are cute...and perfect for texting. hehe.  and man, there are so many sweet designs and colors out right now. so hard to choose! 

now for those who have been following my blog and sandy's blog (and our twitters too) know that she and i have been working on a little something-something that we are bursting to tell you all about. though its' not november 4th yet, take today's current obsessions as a major hint for what we are about to reveal tomorrow! so be sure to be back here for more info. we can hardly wait!

and i don't think i've said it yet (so i'm going to!)...
Happy November, friend! 

i was honestly a little bit discouraged yesterday with how fast life was going and felt slightly overwhlemed but i want to change that mindset for the rest of this week. and instead, think about celebrating this month! what's the point of all this fave holidays when you can't even be joyful in the midst of them? i want to celebrate by savoring time with family (mine and ryan's!), enjoying hot apple cidar (with lots of extra caramel pls.), making pumpkin pies for my daddy, and taking lots of walks outdoors before the temperature completely drops. 

what will you do today to celebrate November?

[happy wednesday, friend!]


  1. i love gloves too! those modcloth ones are adorable. and yes, fingerless gloves are amazing, even if they aren't super functional.

  2. Those are pretty gloves!:D

    I think it's great that you are changing your mindset, it's always better to be positive and happy.:D
