Happy February ~ Letter From The Editor

Friday, February 2, 2018
February is finally here! I have to say there were days in January that felt as if they were dragging on for weeks and others that felt like they flew by in an instant. Although I'm not fond of the February weather, I do love the month overall. It's short, which means spring is all the closer, and it's the month of my youngest daughter's birthday. So, we always have something fun to look forward to in the month.

This month on the blog, I'll be focusing on spring fashion. From trends in colors to the of-the-moment essentials (from clothes to accessories), I'll have a rundown on what you need to know and what you'll want to buy and want to want to pass up. I've already gotten a jump start with a showcase of fun spring flats for the budget conscious (all are under $40). There are so many fun shoe trends on the horizon, and I can't wait to share more with you.

I'll also share a few of my tips for prioritizing self-care and taking back your time (or at least managing it a little better). Sometimes by saying no, you make time and room in your life for the things that really matter. We could all use a little more of that!

In the meantime, sit back and enjoy these popular stories from January.

This month, I'm all about celebrating Valentine's Day. Whether it's yourself, a partner/spouse/SO, a friend, a sibling, a parent, or a child, go big or go home! Deck yourself out in red and celebrate the month of love.

Cherry Red Booties
How sexy are these suede red booties? I don't wear red very often, but I adore these booties. They'd look fab with a pair of ankle length dark wash denim.

Bell Sleeve Top
Make a statement with this red bell sleeve top. Pair it with your favorite jeans for a casual Friday look at work or cocktails or lunch with friends.

Red Lipstick
I love keeping my look simple with a pair of jeans and a black turtleneck and vamping it up with a red lip. MAC's Russian Red is a color that everyone can wear no matter you skin tone or age.

Tassel Earrings
A great pair of statement earrings speak volumes. Let these tassel and bead earrings do all the talking this February.

And Pinterest too!

Wishing you a lovely February!
