Cold Hands, Warm Heart







































Cold hands, warm heart.  Not so much, apparently.

A few years ago, Ailyn picked up these surprisingly warm, fuzzy-lined mittens when she was studying abroad for just $1 USD.  I've always been a mitten girl; in my humble opinion, they're much warmer, though admittedly much less functional than gloves.  I actually keep a different pair of arm accessories (gloves, mittens, fingerless gloves, arm warmers--you name it) in every piece of outerwear so that I--like many boy scouts and Scar--am always prepared.

A big thank you to Ying of MyDressyWay's for her Jewelmint giveaway! If you're new to the jewelry subscription site, Jewelmint, then use beauty guru hollyannaaeree's code: HOLLY for 60% off your first purchase.

Stay warm and safe in the midst of any winter snowstorms coming your way. :)

  3. I used to love mittens when I was a kid. I agree, they were very warm. I'll have to purchase a few again, but I would have to get the mittens that open so I can use my iPhone, etc. I like the color combinations used in your look and your earrings are equally gorgeous!
