current obsessions wednesday: mixed prints, spring, books...and oh yes, food!

 cardi, skirt, leggings: f21 / necklace: aldo / tank: urban outfitters
dog: PEYTON who likes to be the center of attention and to sneak into photo shoots

yup, it's wednesday. can you believe it? where is this week going? and as fast as the week is rushing past us, we're gonna dive right into current obsessions wednesday. (i feel real good about this 'cause i was so bad during december/january, i get excited when i actually am a good blogger and get this post together as promised.) so as showcased above, currently obessing over...

mixed prints.

i know some people think that is so runway to do that. no one does that in real life.  but i beg to differ. even if things don't "matchy-match" they still can, as long as you put the right pieces together. lately, i've especially loved stripes with florals. i just think its almost like pumping your hand in the air at winter and screaming spring is coming! just you wait!

lemode accessories.
 bought that travel bag two weekends ago and cannot stop browsing their inventory. 
i think i want everything.
yes, please.

tote bags.
   
im on the hunt for a new tote bag. i'm getting tired of lugging my packages to the post office in plastic bags or just my arms. trying to carry them all in there, gets a little awkward. 

snacks from asian grocery stores. 

i went to an asian grocery store the other day.
all the snacks i bought were gone the next morning.

 more reading.

and i cannot totally recommend these books yet since i'm not done reading them, but i'm LOVING The Maze Runner. lots of people said the first one is pretty slow but since its picked up, i'm hooked and cannot wait to start The Scorch Trials. will keep you posted. 

much love. 
[happy wednesday, friend.]

    Well done, lady.

  11. I bet Ryan pinches himself on a daily basis to make sure he's really so lucky to marry such a cutie-patootie. You. Are. A. Doll.

    I feel like I say that every time I comment here.

    I promise I don't mean it in a weird stalker way. Only the sweet stalker way. ;D

    I haven't read those books yet. I've thought about it half a dozen times, but then don't. Are they similar to the Hunger Games?

    tote bags are so handy, I swear I could carry them everywhere. I like the middle picture of the tote bag, the one with the bike. Just because one day I want to ride one of those. Hopefully i don't fall when I do.
