Ohhhh February.

Some February Outfitting highlights...

Folks, winter is not my favorite season.  I try to see the beauty in every stage of the year, but boy have we had quite a season.  Snow fall after snow fall, freezing temperatures, ice, sleet, freezing rain; the whole deal.  I think Delaware is quite ready for spring, as for me- I am ready for summer!!!  

Even with all of the crazy weather, I have had a pretty good month.  A few weeks ago I went to New York City for my first EVER New York Fashion week and attended the K. Nicole Runway Show, the product of my friend Nicole Rae Styer and her design partner, Kera Anderson.  The show was AMAZING.

Valentine's Day was low key and relaxing, and was spent at the Homegrown Cafe in Newark, my favorite spot for good eats and music.  We had just had a whirlwind of snow the two days before, so getting out was a bit of a challenge.  
We're such goofballs ;)

And as you can see- my dipdyed hair got a lift with bright pink (which actually started as bright purple) and I am loving it!  Most exciting of all, is that the weather is starting to brighten up a bit, yesterday we got a nice break from the cold and snow and it was warm enough to take my bike out for a spin in the park!

This kimono style holly hobby piece was perfect for bike riding yesterday.  It felt so freeing to just be able to step out without a coat on and go.  The sun was shining, the birds were singing, most importantly- the snow was melting!!! Alas, the weather is not quite ready to stick around, but at least we got a break from the overcast, snowy days we have been having.  I feel so much more myself when I can be outside and be active for more than thirty minutes without freezing.  I need my woods and trees and fields, they are such a big part of me!  

So glad I could update this week, and I will try to get back to my weekly updates now that the weather is calming down.  It seemed as though every time I tried to take outfit photos it snowed and dropped below freezing again!!! (not the easiest weather to show your cute outfits in ;)  So happy almost end of the winter everyone and I hope your weeks are off to a good start!
