Crocheted fingerless gloves. Ohhhh yeeeaaaahhh.
Summer’s officially over, my darlings. You wouldn’t know it, looking out my window right now, but that’s what the people say (also, the calendar), so I’m officially in mourning. Let’s hope that Fall (… to work in a line from Glee…) doesn’t amount to one giant ball of SUCK.
Kidding, I’m sure it won’t. I mean just think about it; what do we love about Fall? Personally, I love layering. Love it. So Fall means I get to wear cute light jackets, oxford shirts, jeans, BOOTS, and gorgeous scarves. This is a good thing.
But, what I’m not so keen on is the fact that Winter immediately follows Fall. And winter and I are currently not on speaking terms. Winter decided to last far too long the last 25 or so years of my life, and I’ve grown to resent it. Also, it’s cold. Which reminds me…
Here’s an excerpt from recent conversations formed by programs on the Discovery Channel:
Ever heard of that Ice Hotel situation out in the town of Freezing, Cold? But seriously, it’s located in the village Jukkasjärvi, Sweden, and here’s how the hotel presents the idea: “staying at ICEHOTEL is an experience utterly unlike other hotel stays.”
That, is not enticing to me. Does it entice you? Seriously, I’m asking. Because I don’t know many who would honestly say “now that, THAT sounds like an amazing way to spend my two weeks a year of vacation time!!!”
But guess what? The honey is DYING to stay in that ice hotel. WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY????? I ask him.
He thinks he’s funny.
I don’t know how you guys feel on the matter but, personally, I don’t want to stay somewhere where it’s very cold outside, and then, at the end of each day, I retire to my hotel room and cozy up with my honey in the winter jacket I wore all day and the hollowed out body of a bear that is my comforter.

Of course, in thinking about the ice hotel, I think about… shocker… a wedding in the ice hotel. Not MY wedding, but ahh wedding, for a gal who doesn’t mind a little less a total lack of comfort. And for that bride, I suggest: crocheted fingerless gloves! But only these fingerless gloves, or others very similar to them. Because, as a rule, fingerless gloves are not fashion-forward and should be approached with caution. These? I approve.
I came across these winners on Tulle (please don’t be mad if they sell out – things have a weird way of doing that after I post them).
P.S. – They immediately reminded me of the video I’ve embedded below, except for the fact that they are completely awesome and the only fingerless gloves I will permit you to wear on your wedding day at that stupid ice hotel or anywhere for that matter, if you feel the need to wear such things.
How are you keeping warm during your Fall/Winter wedding? A cardigan? A scarf? Just gonna freeze because you need to show off those shoulders you’ve been working out for the past two months straight? And how about your bridesmaids – are you going to have them wear matching cardis? Because that would be THE CUTEST, by the way.
