Day 1: #MakingFebruaryFabulous | It's the First of the Month

@@"It's the first of the month" *Bone Thugz N' Harmony voice*@@

There's a reason the 1st is always such a big deal, and no, it's not because of your rent. Be it the first of the month or the year, Day 1 is a reminder of a new beginning, a chance to start over or start something new. 

This month's theme is Making February Fabulous. Today is a great day to start.

I love long layers in the winter. This outfit is a great starter for this month because it can be easily replicated AND it doesn't require ironing.

I started this look by pairing two items of similar ribbed textures, but different colors. Knits are a great way to stay warm but still be cute. By pairing a neutral with a pastel, and repeating the same color pairing in my jewelry, I avoid looking like a knit rainbow.

Since my clothing pieces are on the lighter side, I decided to go darker for my footwear and outerwear. This brown long coat is perfect for a simple sophisticated look because, although it doesn't have a lot of detail, it has a great cut and a loose fit. It's also slightly ribbed, which goes well with the textures of my cardigan and dress.
