Obsessions

{TALENTI GELATO}
Holy crap this Gelato is amazing.  I picked up the Carmel Cookie Crunch flavor and then proceeded to eat half the container.  Please go buy some.  Next flavors on my list to try are Sea Salt Carmel, Coffee Chocolate Chip, and Toasted Almond.  Any other recs?


If you have never tried on the Minne pant at JCrew you are seriously missing out.  This is one of the most flattering pairs of pants I have tried on for several reasons.  
One: It has no pockets which means no bulges, only a side zipper.  
Two: The pants are made with a flattering two way stretch fabric.  This means they suck you and stretch at the same time.  
Three:  All the colors are great for fall.  Plus they are great for work or play.
This is a great pant option if you don't want skinny jeans and did I mention they are comfortable??  
The Vibrant Flame color is one sale right but I really love the dark green!


After seeing this blouse in my Marie Claire I knew I needed it - because duh I certainly don't already have enough blouses.  It is on sale right now and I promise it looks so cute on.  The neutral colors are perfect to pair with colored jeans. 


I am debating between  this light and a sputnik for the main light in Sterling's Big Boy room.  I love both but I love the price of this one eve more!  Such a steal.


I have really been into layering necklaces lately and this necklace is perfect for that.  It would be great for everyday wear alone or layered with long chains.  I love how sweet and delicate it is.  If you have more than one kid it would be so cute to get two with each child's initial.  It is a steal at $75.

The Minnie Pant on me was no good -- I ordered a 4 tall and they were so tight (not work appropriate - and I was politely asked to not wear them again by HR at my place of employment)yet really big in the waist. The butt stretched out on me so bad after sitting in them too. I was afraid to size down as well because of how tight they were in the legs. I did find an awesome pair of skinny chino crops at the Gap that were amazing! (and no saggy derriere)

Also, I have the same blouse -- got it in the mail last week! Love it.

The Minnie pant is great. I own classic black, but love those fun colors, too.

Oh I need that necklace, its adorable! And that ice cream looks incredible. The minnie pant is my favorite but they stretch out soooo much, not cute by the end of the day

Julia {Pawleys Island Posh} said...

loooove those minnies and that pendant!

Mallory Wynne said...

Tahitian Vanilla Bean is another good flavor. I could barely keep myself from eating all of it...

Gaby [The Vault Files] said...

Love all of these obsessions!

Anne said...

You need to try the Mediterranean Mint Talenti! To die!

I was worried about the Minnie pant stretching so much - looks like thats pretty much the consensus! Target has a GREAT pair by Mossimo right now that are spot on similar for 1/3 the price! It even comes in like 5 colors.

I have the same problem with the minnie pant. They are really loose in the waist and by the end of the day have gotten super saggy, not cute! I have found the pixie fits me a little better, but they aren't quite as work approp in a ponte knit vs. the twill of the minnie. The pixie is the perfect black legging though--no show through!

I love the fit of the jcrew minnie. And was actually planning on heading to j crew this afternoon to pick up the green ones. Love the color!

I have been eating the hell out of that gelato since I discovered it this summer. Simply Strawberry is un-freaking believable, even though there's no chocolate in it! You will die. The Sicilian Pistachio is very yummy too. Actually, I haven't tasted one I didn't love yet!

Jill said...

that gelato in blood orange is the bomb also!

I love my minnies I have black and the flame red

katie gavigan said...

ice cream is currently off-limits at our house (self-imposed), but surely gelato doesn't count, right?? :)

Liz said...

sea salt caramel is the bomb. i served it one day with a flourless chocolate cake from epicurous (easy to make) and it was delish. certainly if there's no flour, it means less calories, right?

natasha {schue love} said...

Those pants look amazing! Picture please! :) And the sea salt carmel is amazing...seriously, the best!

Jen said...

The sea salt caramel is BEYOND amazing! I had to take spoonfuls of it at a time to stop myself from eating the whole container. So good!!!

Tess said...

Totally have to agree with you about that ice cream - it is TDF!!!

livingchel said...

I am a huge fan of the minnie pant from J.Crew. They are excellent and very affordable at that!

Portuguese Prepster said...

I love my minnie pants so much. Seriously best pants ever.

Baby Mama Juice said...

My favorite flavors are the caramel cookie and the pistachio! Minnie pants are the best! I love both of those light fixtures!

Kerr said...

Raspberry chocolate chip!

Amanda I. said...

The Sea Salt Caramel is amazing!!

Alexa said...

That blouse is great, so are the pants!

The Now said...

Excuse me!!!! I need that gelato immediately!!!!! Love that light fixture so much! xoxo

Sara said...

Dark chocolate, pistachio and coconut. My favorite is to mix half dark chocolate and half coconut.

Sadie + Stella said...

I have forever wanted those Minnie's. hmmm maybe you've convinced me!

Dominique DeLaney said...

The sea salt caramel flavor is my absolute FAVORITE!!! Loving all your obsessions and I am a big fan of layering necklaces lately too@

Nat said...

That gelato sounds amazing! I have the minnie pants- but I have a love hate relationship with them because they stretch out so much during the day that they look awful at the end of my work day. I also go with the tall because the regular are too short for my legs.

Matters of Style said...

The dark choc gelato is amazing, too. Love that brass light!

Susan White said...

Mediterranean Mint is my absolute fav!

jackpotlove said...

Oh how we miss Publix and that gelato!! We live in MD for half the year ( Anyways the best are the one you have, the chocolate chocolate chip, and pistachio!
I must have that necklace!

Portuguese Prepster said...

I must try the caramel cook crunch flavor and I would die without minnie pants! Best fitting pants for me!

Christina said...

The Sea Salt Caramel is the best. Pour some vanilla liquer (we use this one: http://www.cabounico.com/web/ItemView.aspx?ID=36) over it...makes it taste like a boozey flan. Yum! Or pour a shot of espresso over it.

have been dying to try that gelato -- looks amazing!!
