Help! I Need New Gloves!

December 17, 2013 in I Adore What I Love, Simple Style Ideas

Please forgive my lack of words this week as I’ve been busy knocking off many of my December Must-Do’s from the recent list that I created at the beginning of the month.  Not to mention, all the while I’ve been freezing my tiny fingers off in this bitter, cold weather… thus bringing me to the recognition that I.NEED.NEW.GLOVES.

The gloves that I have are just not gonna cut it. Reason being that 1) they are way too thin for any Chicago winter and in all honesty, they don’t help much when it comes to warming me up. 2) They’re all black (which is never bad) but unfortunately, they just really aren’t that cute.  They have absolutely NO bells and whistles to them and nothing special to get excited over.  3) The fabric is awful. They’re not even cozy!  And 4) they don’t keep my fingers toasty like gloves are supposed to do!

I’m pretty sure I mentioned number 4 already but seriously guys, what’s the point of wearing gloves if they don’t keep you warm?! That’s like wearing sunglasses that don’t block the sun from your eyes!  Kind of ridic… and by kind of, I mean really ridiculously ridiculous.

The moral of the story? I need new gloves and I thought you could help me out!
Here’s how:

1. Take a look at the spread below (I’ve already chosen some cute ones!)
2. Leave a comment on this post letting me know which pair is your favorite and the ones that you think I should bite the bullet and invest in!

Because let’s be honest – I could use a glove makeover in my life! So HELP!

    I think 1 and 5 are super cute and girls. Although 2 would be very versatile! And I like 4 because the love and touch screen finger tips… So basically I am not much help! I guess it depends on what you are going for…Every day wear? Maybe 2.

      Thanks for your input Cassie!! I’ve also gotten a lot of feedback from friends, etc. about number 2 – I think I am going to go with that pair! Super versatile and the no fingers will make it easy for me to unlock my iPhone using my finger print! Ha!
