Goodbye January, hello February! It feels like New Year’s Eve was just yesterday, yet here we are. In honor of a new month, I’ve made a list of 10 things we should all try this month. If you try them, let me know! When I do, I’ll be featuring them here and tell you all about them!
1. Colorblock red and pastel pink.
Pairing red and pink is a long gone fashion faux pas. Mixing the two is totally modern, unexpected and fun for the most romantic month of the year. Try a red suit with a light pink top or a red midi with a pretty pink crop top.
2. Get fit with Classpass.
This month, I’m finally trying out Classpass! In case you aren’t familiar with Classpass, here’s the deal: sign up for $99/month and you have access to thousands of fitness classes at different studios around your city. You can take 3 classes per month at any ONE studio, and of course, as many as you want across all of them. The selection of classes is awesome, including pilates, yoga, barre, spin, dance and more. I can’t wait to try Bar Method!
3. A nude manicure.
Maybe it’s nail art backlash, but there’s been a major return to classic, nude manis lately. While I love my nail art, an understated nude feels like a nice change of pace from time to time.
4. A statement coat.
This one’s for all my girls up north! Since it seems that we’re having six more weeks of winter, go ahead and take the plunge on a fun statement coat. (Remember this post on 56 amazing coats under $200? Just some recommendations!)
5. Host an Oscar watch party.
February 22, round up your girlfriends, fill out your Oscar ballot, pour some champagne and talk all things red carpet. (Then, come back to ASF the 23rd and catch my red carpet recap!)
6. Celebrate Galentine’s Day with you girlfriends.
I love love love a good Galentine’s Day! Make it a pj party, screen rom coms on Netflix, and again… champagne. (If you’re all in relationships, schedule it for Friday night before!)
7. Up your sneaker game.
This month, the Kate Spade Saturday x New Balance collab hits stores! If these fun kicks won’t inspire you to get into the gym, nothing will! (Plus, you’ll need sneakers if you’re going to be trying out Classpass 😉 )
8. House of Cards marathon
If you haven’t watched House of Cards on Netflix, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Grab a blanket, a bottle of wine and settle in. If you’ve already watched the show, go through it again ahead of the February 27th premiere of season 3! (Loving Claire’s style? Remember this post? It’s still one of my most popular!)
9. Layer with a sleeveless blazer
The sleeveless blazer is a great layering piece! Throw it on over something super-girly for a bit of polish.
10. Red velvet oreos
They’re officially in-stores today. DYING. Using them as a base for my fave oreo truffles! (BTW- that recipe? Use milk chocolate, white chocolate or almondbark instead of semi-sweet chocolate!)
