The Covet : Mittens

January 24, 2014
cute mittens
Judging by the size of my mitten collection, I have quite a addiction fondness for them. They're just so much warmer and happier than gloves to me cause your fingers get to stay together. I'm not purchasing any more at the moment since I have close to 20 pairs but that doesn't mean I can't still scope them out and these styles have caught my eye. I have a pair that looks alot like no. 2 and the pom poms are so fun. Do you wear mittens? Which pair would you pick?

Thanks for the very kind birthday wishes! We did brave the 10 degree weather and had a nice lunch at Miss Korea BBQ which is a fave. It wasn't so bad out if one was properly bundled and the wind didn't blow. The streets were oddly quiet. We picked up some treats including an incredible savory cheese donut from Paris Baguette and just chilled at home afterwards. I actually took a nap and it was awesome. It felt good to arrive at this birthday given the various ailments that I've been dealing with in the past year. And hubster gave me with an item that I'd been coveting for awhile. I hope to share it with you all in a photo with Rena and Ian soon. Jury duty worked out great too. I had to call in for 2 days and wasn't needed so I was dismissed without ever having to show up at the courthouse.

  9. Oooh, I like "Miss Korea", too! Don't you think the servers are extra cute over there? ;D
    Glad to hear you had a nice birthday, Rowena.
    Not a big fan of mittens to be honest, but reading this post made me feel good.
    Happy weekend! xoxo

  12. Hi lovely Rowena! And wishing you a Happy Birthday late counts doesn't it? lol I love mittens too, there's just something so charming about them I think, as well as perfect for a fwarm inger party inside the mittens while it's freezing cold out! I'm so bad at losing my gloves and mittens ... never fails, happens every year that one or more goes missing. Usually the culprit is when I lay them on my lap in the car and then forget they are there when I stand up. Or leaving them beside me on the booth of a restaurant. Guess I need those little clip on things kids wear lol! Happy Friday, sweet! Sorry I've been so absent everywhere, an insane schedule to blame! xox ~S

  16. I'm glad you survived the weather! It's been the same kind of ridiculous cold where I am too.

    I like mittens because they are warmer than gloves, but I only wear them when it's really cold because they can be a little cumbersome when it comes to trying to use your hands.

  22. Mittens are the cutest! I'm loving #2 with the pom poms on them. Sounds like a great birthday Rowena. It's all about doing things you love. So good for you. You lucky girl!!! They make us sit there half a day and then tell us they don't need us. LOL It's crazy! :D Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

  26. I miss a few posts and end up missing your birthdate and jury duty updates????
    HAPPY BELATED!
    BTW, I'm totally going to steal that line though--"ADDICTION? More like FONDNESS!". My dog's name is 'Mittens', so I have quite an affinity for mittens too. So darn cute and warm, but so darn impractical! I can't use my hands as effectively as I can with gloves :3

  27. Mittens are adorable. I've wanted a pair for the last few winters but I can only ever find gloves.

  33. I'm so glad you didn't have to go to jury duty on your birthday! It must have felt like a present. Barbecue sounds good. I don't eat meat but I think it would be fun to cook food right at the table.

    I love the flip top pairs of mittens you show, those are my favorite to wear. I put thin gloves under them when it's really cold so you have the best of both worlds. :)

    I have been watching Creating Destiny and the two leads are over-acting so badly it's almost painful, of course that hasn't stopped me from getting 10 episodes in. I agree about INR2012, I didn't think it was terrible but they could have completed the whole story in 5 episodes if they took out the annoying flashbacks they played over and over. How is Emergency Couple?

    I am hemming a pair of pants up again. It's such a good idea to hem in the middle of the heights you need but sadly I only wear flats, I just can't get the hem height right.

  34. What pretty mittens. My favorites are the shady lady ones.

  35. Happy Belated Birthday- it sounds like you had a nice one! :) These mittens are so cute- I love the ones with the tiny hearts that convert from fingerless gloves to mittens.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Haha, you own 20 pairs of mittens!? Dang girl! : ) I only own one pair, but I've been wearing them nonstop because it's been chilly in Seattle. I love the styles you selected. My favorite is number 9. I've never seen pleather mittens before. So chic and cute with the dainty little bow!
