February roundup

Another off day for me today, so I thought I'd do a look back at my OOTD posts from February.

Week 1

Feb. 3 | Feb. 4 | Feb. 5 | Feb. 6 | Feb. 7

The first week of February saw the debut of my weekly fashion challenges, and also my first refashion post. I have a few more refashions up my sleeve that I hope to show you in March. And I've really been enjoying the weekly fashion challenges as a way to push myself out of my comfort zone and "shop my closet." It's really prompted me to analyze what I like to wear and what I don't like. I think I am going to do a big spring purge; watch for sales on my Instagram feed as I clear out lots of goodies!

Week 2

Feb. 10 | Feb. 11 | Feb. 12 | Feb. 13 
Week 2 of February started off great with two outfits I really loved. Then I had a couple sub-par days — not-great outfits, and really poor photos. To top it all off, I missed a day because of snow! I feel like I am still learning how to pose, how to position the camera and how to take advantage of the meager winter light. And I've pushed myself this month to be more consistent with my posts — how they are structured and, more importantly, when I post them (1 p.m. Eastern time, if you're curious).

Week 3

Feb. 17 | Feb. 18 | Feb. 19 | Feb. 20 | Feb. 21
A much better week — I'm actually quite happy with all of these outfits except for my Toddler Tuesdays look. I just can't get those gray trousers to work, I think they're slated for resale. It's really interesting for me to look back and see how different skirt lengths or waist heights (and heel height, etc.) affect how my body shape looks.

Week 4

Feb. 24 | Feb. 25 | Feb. 26 | Feb. 27 | Feb. 28
Toddler Tuesdays got postponed to Thursday last week, and I hosted my first Work It Wednesdays linkup challenge with the theme of "summer dresses in winter." (I also got a much-needed haircut — check out the difference between Monday's and Tuesday's pics.) Between my own weekly fashion challenges, Toddler Tuesdays and Work It Wednesdays, my weeks are getting pretty full! I may cut back to one or two challenge items per week to give myself a little more flexibility.

I've been thinking a lot lately about why I am doing daily outfit photos — I'm still ruminating and look forward to sharing my thoughts as well as inviting yours on the subject.

I hope you will join in tomorrow's Work It Wednesdays linkup challenge and share your favorite way to mix prints! I am still offering an exclusive coupon for 25% off everything in my Etsy shop to everyone who participates, so I hope to see you tomorrow! The linkup will go live at 1 p.m.
