obsessions.

Friday, March 23, 2012

- I wish I was one of those cool bloggers that sends out trendy tweets like, "loving the new DVF + GapKids collaboration" or "super stoked about this revival of NEON", but alas I'm just a loner that's not all that good at lying. Two things: (1) fluorescent fashions won't be hanging in my closet anytime soon and (2) if it weren't for "The City" and Miss Whitney Port I'd have no clue who Diane von Furstenberg even is {or Kelly Cutrone for that matter}.

- While I'm not a style trendsetter, I am hoping to add a *pop* of RED to my Spring wardrobe in the form of either {a} skinny jeans or {b} TOMS. Care to weigh in on this very important 1st World decision?
- Speaking of denim, I've become a bit of a Gap Jeans snob over the years thanks to their near perfect fit for both myself and my kids. While Saige has 5+ pairs of the toddler girl mini-skinny's, I'm a super fan of the real straight style {low rise, slim in the hip & thigh, straight leg opening}; they give my bubble butt the snug hug it needs.

- Mason jars. I've retired my Sigg water bottle in favor of an old canning jar and my love of water-on-the-go has been renewed. I don't know about you but I found the whole metal aftertaste of aluminum unappetizing. And to mix things up a bit, I'm actually considering replacing all the glassware from our wedding registry with mason jars for the summer. 

- Yearbook Yourself. This app is too much! When I first plugged Trev's mug {rhyme} into the 1992 Hammertime hairdo I almost PEED myself laughing, but when I proceeded to uploaded a photo of me, I almost DIED. People tell me I look like Bren - aka  'my mom' - all the time and I've never seen it until 1974 {see below}. Some of these are just plain awful, but others make me think I could totally rock glasses... yes? no?

- Even though we're the only province in Canada still wearing parkas, Okanagan summers can get pretty darn hot and since we're already adding square footage to our humble abode we thought 'hey why not add a covered deck while we're at it?' If this happens I'm 100% obsessed with the idea of incorporating a pair of his & her swings that can be affixed underneath for year round use.

- Listen up blogettes, Jen from Rambling Renovators has a series on blogging that's totally ahh-mazing {you're gonna wanna bookmark this one, trust me}...

** so the kidlets & I are all packed up and headed out on an overnight, internet'less adventure that involves pony rides, hot tubs and some much needed girl talk over peach ciders. I'll see you wise followers when I get back and expect that the link up below will be FULL with all your aww-some obsessions posts come Sunday #whoamIkidding.

I've actually been having an internal argument with myself for two months about whether I am too old for red skinny jeans. I'm about 70% convinced that if I wear them, I'll be super embarrassed about it when I look back a year or two down the road. Like, you know when you find something you stored in a box and you're like "OMFG, I wore that?!?". This stems partly from the fact that I'm pretty sure skinny red jeans only look good on really skinny people. Once I see an average sized person wear skinny jeans that is over the age of 25, I might take the plunge.

I used to think brightly coloured anything was difficult for an average gal to pull off and my wardrobe admittedly consists mostly of blue and grey... but then I spent a few months in Latin America and realized that women of all shapes, sizes and ages can pull of magazine trend fashions. Those ladies like their fashion and are not shy about it. We in north america take ourselves too seriously. I got my " hot pants" red skinny's down ther. I love wearing them all the time and haven't yet suffered any negative consequences, a few positives actually!

1. I read the very blog post about DVF and Gapkids collaboration and still had NO idea what dVF meant until you just wrote it out. Awesome.

2. Go with both! I have red toms - love them. I need red skinny jeans (and skinny legs) - love them too.

Thanks for hosting girl!

Just got my first pair of TOMS- in RED University Stripe. They are insanely comfortable. But I, too, have been yearning for a brightly colored pair of jeans. Either way, good choice!

I say go for the red jeans!!! They are so fun and versitle. I've found that I'm reaching for my colored denim so much more than my blue jeans. You could always go for a pair of red pumps too, superstore had some for 10$!

let's do it together... we'll be like those annoying girls in university who held hands en-route to the bar bathroom.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

if only I was 6 feet+ and I could just try yours on for size - I agree they do look aww-some on your.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

I LOVE your red Toms! I think you're the one who gave me the idea about getting a pair for myself instead of Saige.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

you're 100% adorable

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

oooh I need to check out this university stripe ;)

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

$10?! how can one go wrong.

Jen @ RamblingRenovators said...

How did I only see this now? Thanks for the shout out!

And you totally could have rocked the glasses. I think 1976 was your year.
