January Favorites + Looking Ahead

As a blogger we usually end each year with a recap of the previous twelve months, as well as preview what's coming up for us in the new year. While these end-of-year recaps are great, why not break them down throughout the year so we can truly enjoy what each month brought. Great idea, right?!

So I decided to start each month off with a post recapping the previous month and looking ahead at what's to come for the new one. This way y'all don't miss a thing and can get excited for what's to come.







So let's start with taking a look back at January...

Personal: Spent my first week in my new apartment, finished moving things over and sold my old furniture. My mother came to visit and we shopped around town over MLK weekend to find all the new pieces for my new place.

Blog: I celebrated my TWO year blogiversary (wow, still can't believe it) and took a look back at the amazing accomplishments and memories from the past two years.

Favorite January Posts:

Garnet and Gold // a professional and chic look for the office
Winter Pastels // featuring the two Pantone colors of the year
Georgetown Style // a professional, yet casual look for an afternoon of shopping around Georgetown
Rose Quartz // shop some of my favorite pale pink pieces
Valentine's Day Inspired Bar Cart
Home Decor Inspiration













Now let's look ahead to what's coming up for February...

Personal: Although February is a shorter month than the rest, it's definitely the most jam packed month so far! This coming weekend I'm looking forward to a few events, a good friend's birthday and watching the Superbowl with friends. Who are y'all cheering for? I definitely have to root for Peyton since I'm a Tennessee grad!!

February also brings Mardi Gras and the start of Lent. I'm excited to celebrate here in DC and still trying to decide what to give up for this year. The past two years I've been able to give up Diet Coke for 40 days, but thinking of doing something different this year. Ideas?

Blog: February is a BIG month for the blog. Not only will I be heading to New York Fashion Week in two weeks, the blog will also be getting a facelift. I'm working with a fabulous designer and we've brainstormed some really exciting updates. I took all of your suggestions from the reader survey to heart and can't wait to implement those requests on this site. There will also be lots of new content, many recaps and outfit posts from NYC throughout the month. It's definitely going to be a fun month, content wise.








Enjoy the first day of February and have a happy Monday friends! Xo
