Style Wise : Mittens


I admit it. I might be addicted to mittens. I mean I only buy them like they're going out of style. Of course I remember a time when mittens weren't really popular and especially hard to find. That's a notion I apparently haven't been able to let go of. I turned to mittens cause gloves never kept my hands warm and I also didn't like the feel of them. And they're way cuter than gloves. I'm glad they're so much more accessible these days but that may only fuel my addiction. I just saw this cute Kate Spade pair the other day...

I'm quite fond of my little collection. I actually have two more pairs than pictured here but they were omitted for the sake of symmetry. Yes I'm anal like that. 

Are mittens a yay or nay for you? Is there anything that you buy like it's going out of style?

Your mittens are super cute! I wear mittens mostly since they are so warm. I've even been known to wear a pair of thin gloves inside my mittens {usually in Canada when it's -20}.

lovely collection! And obviously required for an NYC winter... I'm woefully under-prepared hand warmer wise for when I get back! I seem to collect ballerina flats like they're going out of fashion. I have jewelled, metallic, patent, fabric and so on and so on... need to switch to boots for the winter! Happy weekend!

Grace said...

this is so cute! i love your collections. I always want them but I feel they're so impractical for me because it's never that cold here...love the pom pom ones from asos! they're so cute and fun :)

Shop N' Chomp said...

Super cute collection! *^_^* I'm strangely drawn to your Olympics ones. XD I just own gloves. :sad face:

(Haha...not crazy at all! I haven't seen Chopped and now I'm curious)

Happy weekend!! :D

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Wait, those are all yours?!?! What a fabulous one! I'd say you probably have a slight addiction but that's ok. We all have our things :)

I love mittens myself. They make me happy. I might have to pick up some colorful ones this weekend. You've inspired me :)

Have a great weekend, sweetie! xoxo

Hannah {Culture Connoisseur} said...

Well, living in Florida, it's never really cold enough for mittens, but I really like the ones you have there with the little poof on top! So cute!

Mary Jo at TrustYourStyle said...

These are all YOUR mittens!!! I'm seriously impressed. Love those black ones with the pink stripes!
Happy weekend to you!

I have a mitten obsession. I have to wear them anytime I am outside because I get such dry hands. Whenever Mr. A and I are together, instead of saying, "Hold my hand," I say, "Hold my mitten." Then I giggle like a schoolgirl because I find it hilarious.

i don't own mittens. only just a couple pairs of wool gloves.

ShyScout said...

Yay for mittens!! You have quite the excellent collection :] I only own a pair that my friend gifted to me but I love them. They really do keep your hands warmer than gloves.

Hehe I love mittens too, though I always hated it when my mom made wear them with that string between them so you wouldn't lose them. You have more mittens than anybody I've ever seen, but I can see why they're tempting when they're all so cute and cozy!

Btw thanks for checking out my blog :)

A BRIT GREEK said...

How many cute mittens do you have??? I do love em, but I need my fingers to do stuff...

Hope you have a fab time this weekend!

Sal Zailani said...

definitely a yay but i haven't worn them for a long time now. Winter hasn't been cold enough to wear gloves which is great! you have quite a collection there, I have never known anyone who has that many mittens! hehe xx

Maggie said...

Mittens are so cute! But I must have my fingers so I go for gloves hahaha
My knitwear addiction is beanies. Almost bought another one yesterday! ...I probably am going to go back and get it though. -le sigh-

Vina Yabut said...

Cute! I'd love to wear one if only the weather here in our country allow me to. :p although there are times that it's cold but its still not enough for me to have an excuse to wear these :p

Mittens are a total yay! The only downside is you can't really use your cell phone while wearing them. You have quite a cute collection!

Hope you have a lovely weekend! :)

I love mittens for warmth. My hands seem to stay so much warmer...love your collection!!

Liz (Beauty Reductionista) said...

I don't own a single pair of mittens. I like the idea of them but feel trapped with my fingers unable to do anything. In fact, I'm in the market for those fingerless gloves to add to my glove collection. But the sight of all those mittens lined up are a real treat! So cute! :)

Bad Joan said...

wow that's a lot of mittens!

Oh my gosh - those ASOS mittens are amazing!! I need them...
Also, I love that you omitted 2 mittens in the name of symmetry. I would have done the same thing! :-)

Such a fun post! Glad I just found your blog :-)!

Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

I think mittens are cute. I'm loving your collection. Those Kate Spade's are funny Rolala AND on sale. LOL Enjoy girl :D

rolala said...

Yay another mitten lover!

rolala said...

Thanks! I think I would prob. do that too in such frigid temps.

rolala said...

Lol! Indeed!

rolala said...

They def. come into use for NYC winters. You might not need any hand warmers when you return considering the unseasonably warm winter we seem to be having. Oh my your collection of ballerina flats sounds amazing!

rolala said...

Hey you're lucky it doesn't get cold enough to need them.

rolala said...

Thanks! It must be the color :)
Oh I'm glad you don't think so.

rolala said...

Hehe I guess there are worse addictions ;) Mittens just make me happy too.

rolala said...

You guys are too cute!

trishie said...

Very cute collection! I love your "currently most worn" one. It doesn't get cold enough in Australia to wear them.

Jessi said...

Oooh I remember you had those red Olympic ones :) I love mittens, they're much more comfier and warmer than normal gloves. Mine are all pilling now cuz I wear them everyday :( I love the navy pom pom ones, they're too cute! I love your collection :)

Anita said...

I love mittens, but it never gets cold enough to wear them here ):

cool picks!!!

Chocolate, Cookies & Candies said...

That's singularly the biggest collection of mittens I've ever seen! :) I think I need to get ones that still allow me to use my iPhone.

rolala said...

Those are my faves right now as well :)

rolala said...

Yes these are mine! Thanks!

rolala said...

Thanks Dimitri!

rolala said...

Thanks Akiko!!!

rolala said...

I prob. wouldn't own any either if it was never cold and snowy where I lived. Thanks!

rolala said...

I hated that string too! I just can't seem to resist mittens for some reason. Thanks for visiting me back :)

rolala said...

17 pairs as of right now. I usually just take them off when I need my fingers, It's abit of a hassle but I'm used to it.

rolala said...

Hey you could always go for the version with the mitten top that comes off. Oh I might have a slight addiction to beanies too...

rolala said...

They are def. better for warmth! Thanks!

rolala said...

Most people don't care for mitten for the same reason as you. You could get the fingerless gloves that have the removable tops for the best of both worlds :)

rolala said...

I think those ASOS mittens are still available. Haha thanks! I'm glad to hear that :) I so glad you came by!

rolala said...

Thanks Kim! Lol don't encourage me :)

Popcorn, Pugs & Peonies said...

I love mittens, but I don't think I have ever actually owner a pair. I guess I am more of a gloves girl? I love so many of the pairs you posted.
