sharing my favorites for February at last! better late than never, right? i've been fighting a pretty bad cold the past few weeks (you know the one that everybody had?), and it wasn't fun. but thankfully, after plenty of chicken soup and warm tea, plus tissues and sleep, i am starting to feel like myself again.
this month's favorites are heavy on fashion, including new trends i love and a couple of pieces i've been coveting:
i have always loved browsing runway shows, and earlier this month i wrote about the Rochas pre-fall collection. i was drawn in by the presentation; the photos are just. so. good. i love that they've captured motion, but focused on those awkward in-between moments. the mix of textures, colors and prints worked so well, with a couple of delightful surprises thrown in: velvet, a canary yellow, soft florals, turquoise silk and a good amount of silver snakeskin.
FAUX FUR COATS
faux fur muppet-inspired coats have been mentioned a number of times on here, so now it's time to make it official: for February, fuzzy outerwear has earned it's place on this list. i have been passively looking for a one to call my own, hoping that eventually i will stumble upon the perfect one. Shrimps makes some of my favorite faux fur options -- they're playful and fresh, how can you go wrong with black and pink stripes?
THE GLASS CASTLE
i really enjoyed reading this book: a story about the author's childhood, and her relationships with her parents and three siblings. it was both heartbreaking and heartwarming, definitely reccomend picking up a copy!
lately, i've been focused on finding a pair of mules for spring. mules seem to make anything you wear look effortless, (like magic!) and who doesn't want that? i bought a pair of Marais slides late last summer, and can't wait to finally wear them. mine are in the color cherry, and now i want sky too, ha! if you're considering a pair, i found they do run a full size small.
CAMO IS BACK
i was excited to see camoflage in J.Crew's fall collection. to be honest, i completely forgot about camo! i have an old utility jacket from Club Monaco that i'm going to pull out and wear with stripes and/or polka dots. maybe a dash of leopard too. check out the rest of their collection for more inspo.
