it's all i got for you today. for now. just for now.

is it a crime to make an appearance 2x in 2 weeks?

and that is what these red tights are guilty of. they made an appearance in current obsessions last week, yet here they are. they stand guilty. they know it. and they know that ilene is obsessed with them. not to the point that i'm wearing these everyday (duh) but i do love them. but hey, it's current obsession wednesday! i think it's rather appropriate.

vest: forever21
shorts: forever21
tights: hue
flats: kristen davis 

so what are you're thoughts 
on the shorts and tights trend? 

i think i was in shock that they were coming back. i remember my mom dressing me up in an outfit similar to this when i was 6 years old and was so annoyed that i had to wear it! i hate the feel of the shorst rubbing against the tights. so weird but that was what was going in my 6 year old mind. back to current day...i will say that i'm not digging the denim and tight look - but hey, what ever floats your boat! i've seen it work on some. it wouldn't on moi. i do like these particular pair of shorts i found a couple of weeks ago. they are comfortable and the right texture for me.

sorry that i don't have my current obsessions up and running today. the start of this week has proven to be a busy one. i've been sewing like a maniac, making post office runs and replying to quite a bit of emails. then besides etsy and blog world, in real life...we all had some family friends over for dinner earlier this week...and dad and i even made it to the gym on Monday - as much as we dragged ourselves to work out, we admitted later on, that it was a smart thing to do...esp. with all those thanksgiving calories chilling out in our bodies since thursday! plus it's the holidays, so the fam and i have had fun decorating the house and doing fun holiday-ish things.

as i'm typing this, i'm realized i shouldn't be writing blog posts at 1:30am. i feel myself nodding off and then i'm finding the oddest typos. they've been corrected - but if you find more, you can know why that's the case. 

i got another busy day ahead of me...but you know what? i'm grateful. i really am. i'm not just saying that. during this brief season, i am doing what i love full-time and at the same be able to hang out with my awesome family. what an opportunity, right?

okay, there were some even weirdo typos, so i'm going to stop writing now.

i'll stop by later again today with my current obsessions. 
they will not be forgotten, folks! 

much love.
[happy demember and wednesday, friend.]
