Happy Leap Day everyone! Don’t you just love February being dragged out one more day? Hope some of you are enjoying more pleasant weather than us at least. It is freezing and wet here, not feeling like March is upon us at all! I looked it up and Winter technically doesn’t end until March 19th though, so I will have to get a little more use out of my faux fur and cozy sweaters until then.
Today I just felt like being cozy and casual, so I used this picture of Kendi Everyday as inspiration.
I liked the idea of a soft, silky blouse with a chunky scarf in the same tone. I had a sparkly grey infiniti scarf I hadn’t worn yet so decided to pair that with a grey blouse along with jeans and boots. (Looking at these pictures the next time I wear grey I will go with a brighter lipstick!)

I’m also very excited to share one of my favorite things about the new place, my very own vanity! My husband, along with the help of his handy friend Eric (or really I should say Eric, along with the occasional assistance of my husband) built this into the corner of our bedroom. I used to sit on the floor in front of a mirror to do my make-up and now I actually have a nice little bench to sit on. I think this is a great idea if you have an indented space in a room and are not sure what to do with it. The needle point hung above it was done by my best friend Jenn, and is of our sorority crest, a nice little reminder of her each day. And I want to also share my favorite new beauty tip, coconut oil! I’ve been using it in place of moisturizer/under eye cream for the last week and I love it! My skin is so soft and it is completely natural. It is also a lot cheaper than most moisturizers out there these days…
Tomorrow I will be dressed up because I have to go to court for a red light camera ticket – so annoyed!!
