February Favorites

Here are some of my favorite things from the month of February:
Essie Nail Polish in Going Over Board: A unique dark shade a teal. It looks great alone or with a glittery topcoat. 
Urban Outfitters Mirrored Flats: I've been giving more attention to ballet flats as spring approaches. I'm sick of all of my boots and these are more exciting than your basic black flats. They look great with black tights but will look cute with jeans or shorts as well. 
Yankee Candle in Beach Party: I'm usually not interesting in candles. I can't stand the scent of most of them and they can be a bit overpriced. I happened to see this one in Target recently and the name drew me in. It smells like one of my favorite perfumes, Beach by Bobbi Brown. It's a mix of salt and sunscreen and I love it. 
Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brulee: Everyone knows about these lip butters and they have been reviewed constantly. I finally decided to try one for myself. They are super moisturizing and impart a subtle sheen. These really lean towards lipstick rather than tinted lip balm and I love that. In short they are a very moisturizing lipstick. This shade is a great nude that is more brown than pink. 
Downton Abbey: I finally decided to start watching this show from the very beginning after watching a few episodes here and there and it's awesome (obviously, everyone but me already knew this).
J.Crew School Boy Blazer: I have a few of these and have been wearing them for years. They are great quality and come in a variety of colors and fabrics. I've been reaching for them a lot lately as they can really dress up a basic out. Jeans, tee, flats and a blazer...easy chic!

Hold Tight by Dave Dee Dozy Mick and Titch: I just rediscovered this song again after being obsessed with it a few years ago. 


  1. I love that blazer! I think my weirdo/grungy style (yes, that's a technical term) could use a little random tailored piece once in a while.

  2. those mirrored flats look amazing!

  3. I have been wanting to get that Essie color. It seems perfect to transition form fall to spring. I love the mirror flats but I think if i wore them with a dress I would be paranoid that you can see up my dress in the flats he he .

    1. Haha! I wear them with black tights so hopefully that's not happening.

  4. That nail varnish is just gorgeous!
