Pleased to meet you








Ahh, February! We meet again. I'm excited for this month. All footlong sandwiches are $5 at Subway this month! I've actually stuck with my New Year's resolutions, and I'm ready to work on them even more. It's time to shed my figurative winter coat, so I've committed myself to losing 10lbs this month. Hopefully I should be "bikini ready" by then, since I booked my flight for my birthday trip in March! Six days in sunny Arizona, my favorite state (because, apparently, I am a senior citizen). The house we're staying at has a pool, but it's not heated, so I'm not sure if I even need to be bikini ready, but better safe than sorry, eh?

I treated myself to this coat at Forever 21 for $12. It's still available, so if you're interested, get on that shizz. It's ridiculously thin, but I still like it. And, for the record, I don't know what's up with my face in the first picture, but I don't like it.

What are you looking forward to in February?

Jacket: Forever 21
Trousers: Topshop
Clutch: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Shoes: Michael by Michael Kors
Sunnies: Ray-Bans

  1. You look stunning- I love your new coat and the hair still looks so new (mine faded like crazy!) I really wish you hadn't told me about Subway's deal- that will be problematic with my healthy dieting regime ;) P.S. I love your profile info about being a realist (I'm not!) xo Emily

  5. The coat and your face in the first photo are great! And in my agenda you're bikini ready dear! (damn you glossies for all those skiny nudes...). I'm guessing my February is going to be challenging being a remixer and all!! I just hope I can find 30 outfits without cheating! And some money would be nice - say that to mr. February! Have a lovely day!

  7. I love February for Valentine's day and the snow that causes school to close down.

    On another note I love your clutch, the bright pop of colour in a neutral background is like fire. :) Gorgeous.

  12. I love your face in every picture. Always. You seriously crack me up, my little senior citizen.

    I'm looking forward to March as well and our trip to AZ for BASEBALL!! February and the end of the football season always gets me jazzed for the beginning of baseball season. I'm such a DORK.

    You won't need a heated pool in March in AZ. It's going to be hot as hell, grrrl.

    xoxoxo,

    Good luck losing 10 pounds!! My aim is/was 12, and so far I've lost 5 but the scales in the gym weren't working earlier so I have no idea how it's going!!

  14. I am ashamed to say that I have ONLY JUST become aware of Forever 21... :S But they are AMAZING! I'm pretty sure it's going to become one of my favourite places to shop :) You've got yourself a lovely bargain there x x

  15. The purple with the red is a delightful combination. And, I love the tufts of fur on your sleeves.
    The Arizona trip sounds like a delightful remedy for this winter!

  17. thank you -- that's such a compliment haha! and i understand what you mean about the time.. but you see, i put my love of clothing and makeup over homework.. oops. <3

  18. I love your coat! The whole outfit is fab. I'm going to Arizona in May, I've never been there before, have you?

    ReplyDelete
  19. a) I think your face looks very pretty in pic 1
    b) I like you just the way you are, but if you really want to lose weigth...
    c) don't try doing it in Arizona. That's the only area in the world I gained weight. (I think it was the combination of lounging at the pool, too many cocktails, huge portions in the restaurants and too much driving)
    d) thank you for the knitting link, I'll sure check the blog out.
    e) Great pictures & wonderful outfit!

  20. That coat is so worth more than what you paid for . I love that rich shade of purple and ithas the right amount of (faux) fur.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Wow, you look amazing! Like the red clutch as an eyecatcher. But I'm especially in love with your hair colour! Don't know but nowadays I'm so into red hair. haha

    Yeah, celebrating Lunar New Year in Asia must be really something. I mean, we only celebrate really small here in Germany.

  22. You are lovely. I'm so glad I found another redhead to follow. That color clutch is super rad with the outfit.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love how the fur picks up the colour of your trousers and the pop of colour from your clutch is great.

    For me, I'm looking forward to some daylight. It's been a long, dark winter.

    ReplyDelete
  44. hahah ohh man! I found your blog and this post too late! I totes want that coat, but it's no longer avail. on the website. which means I have to snake into (most likely) multiple stores to even have a crying chance at getting my little paws on something similar. Seriously! It's such perfection. I Love the color and the faux fur. Even though I'm miles from the snow, I want it!
