current obsessions wednesday: sticking my tongue out.

 dress: urban outfitters / leggings: f21 / cardigan: kristen davis, belk/ shoes: kristen davis, belk
belt: f21 / bag: le mode accessories/ nails: OPI jade is the new black

 i've diving right into current obsessions wednesday, folks!

le mode camel traveling bag:  

i'm in LOVE with my traveling bag from lemode. is it not the cutest?! i love the camel color and the fact that it can carry all my junk (including my camera!). purfect for moi! when my beloved bag from H&M died a tragic death (torn unfixable strap - sadness. don't worry, i've fixed it more than a million times since i loved it so much), i was on the hunt for one to replace it...and i love my replacement!

oh, and did you notice? i rocked the brown and black look again today. ha! i told you i'm getting over my OCD-ness when it comes to that "rule." *wink* and btw, this is one of my favorite dresses ever. why? because i was wearing it the day that (my) Ryan proposed to me.

cotton candy addiction:
um, i can be a big kid about a lot of things. and yes, that includes candy...especially cotton candy. i got my hands on a bag of fresh cotton candy yesterday. it totally made my day.

more handmade etsy love.

i came across these lovelies in the past week alone. all of them are "hearted."
see for yourself and you'll see why i'm obsessing over them.


most people stick their finger out to figure out the direction of the wind.
i like to stick my tongue out to figure out the direction of my obsessions.
especially when it comes to cotton candy. yum.

much love.
[happy wednesday, friend.]

p.s. did you enter Laura's giveaway for shop credit?! you don't wanna miss it!

  7. I absolutely adore purses in that color--I'm pretty sure that camel everything was invented just so we could wear black & brown together. Also you should post more details about the wedding planning! I'm sure it's going to be fabulous!
