Today’s post starts with a funny story – at a recent company meeting one of my coworkers came up and introduced herself, after a simple exchange of names she asked me if I was from the South. I said no, I grew up in the suburbs of New York City and have never lived South of D.C., furthermore no one has ever thought I am from the South. I asked my bubbly coworker why she had asked. Well, apparently one day she saw me scroll through my Pandora picking a different song on my country station (which I am sure included a few of these songs) and I was wearing my favorite gold monogram necklace, so she assumed I was fun the South – too funny! While I have become a fan of country music and love a good monogram, I am not quite a country girl.
A few days later I mentioned that I had a blog and I sent her a few posts, including the one about my necklace and this one about monograms. From that post she loved the leather gloves and launched into a story about how in this never ending winter hers are not well lined enough, trust me, I feel the pain! With that in mind I went on a search for well insulated monogrammed leather gloves:
And of all of the monogrammed leather gloves I found, and granted, there were far less than I thought there would be, these Mark and Graham gloves are my favorite:
The idea of monogrammed gloves is just so effortless and glassy. I hesitated on publishing this post because I could not find any gloves that exactly fit my co-workers ask, chic monogrammed gloves that are very warm but not bulky. However, the gloves above are super cute and worthy of a post . To be honest even I have not found a pair of chic gloves that work for 5 degree weather that feels like negative ten degrees with the wind chill, I have been wearing these Men’s Smartouch Nylon Gloves. But back to monogrammed leather gloves, I absolutely love these long gloves from the 1930’s that are currently in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
And while these are no where near gloves I came across these Monogrammed Full Zip Fleece Jackets in my research and they were too cute not to share! (You can find them all here)
Yay for monograms!
