Month in Review: February 2014

Friday, February 28, 2014

February is known for being short, but cruel. Hopefully that's not been the case for you. Honest moment here: with a constant snow storms and both me and The Boy sick, it has been bit cruel for us. Only a little....Still,  I like to think there were many happy posts on Never Fully Dressed! Here are some lovely ones you'll not want to miss!

Lovely Outfits

February, outfits, never fully dressed, withoutastyle, remix, white sweater, popbasic, blue shirt, terrier sweater, wyoming, Black Skirt | Blue Shirt | Pencil Skirt 

February saw a lot of remixing layering pieces, including this Popbasic silk shirt and this cream, cropped sweater. 

Lovely Mail
This month, I shared some of my favorite fashion-inspired stationarymy thoughts on Popbasic's latest, the Sunday Collection; and how to write Letters to the Editor!

Lovely Movies
Classic comedy How to Marry a Millionaire had so much envy-inducing fashion that it inspired not one but two posts of Cinema Style (Here and here)!

Lovely Plans
Bad weather kept us homebound for most of the month, though we did manage one trip out of town. In the meantime, I tried a few of these ideas on things to do in February while other bloggers shared their small pleasures. This winter weather made cozying up with a good book just that much more appealing- why not try reading this month's Dogeared Page, The Tale of Desperaux? It was also a good month for celebration, since February marked the end of my second year of blogging   and the start of year three! The Boy also made Valentine's Day sweet with a special breakfast, flowers and a nice meal out- he felt a bit bad about having work that night, but I know he loves me 365 days a year, so can't complain about that!

Lovely Finds
I am obsessed with this blog lately. It's a good read for anyone interested in minimalism or a French Closet.

    1. Don't you love the idea of public places having rugs/blankets for you etc? The whole article certainly made me think differently about winter.

  2. Loll thanks for the mention.
    Also, I'm in the middle of watching How to Marry a Millionaire with my mom and sis and the costumes are so gorgeous!

    1. TIll this, I'd no idea they didn't know where he was buried. He is definitely an interesting figure. Have you read the Daughter of Time (since that is about him)? If so, would you recommend it?

  8. I just read the wardrobe detox post from the Into Mind blog revamping your closet series...this was so good! Wishing you a gorgeous March. Hope you are feeling better.

      The Postmodern Jukebox is so clever and fun. My favorite is their doo-wap version of Ke$ha's Timber song...
