Belle’s Five Picks for February

Feb 2, 2016

One day, you’re amazed it’s 2016.  The next, you’re shocked it’s February.  Before you know it, you’re carving a turkey wondering where the year went.

This month, I’m feeling bold.  More color, more texture, more impact.  Here are some of the pieces that caught my eye for February.

1. Loeffler Randall Scarlet Lace Up Sandal ($425) // 2. Rifle Paper Garance Dore Social Stationery ($22) // 3. Goat Marcelle Dress ($333) // 4. Queenbee Cuff ($58) // 5. Plaited Updo (Pinterest)

One. Lace-up shoes are the biggest thing in footwear right now.  These Loeffler Randall sandals are so much fun (also in silver/nude).  For an affordable lace-up sandal, I like these laser-cut sandals from Nasty Gal.  I also like their tassel trim gladiator sandals.

Like the lace-up look but want something more conservative?  These blush-colored Topshop lacer-cut grille flats are to die for.  These black ASOS lace-up flats are also a great basic for $36.

Two. Garance Dore created a gorgeous collection for Rifle Paper.  These social cards are very fun.  Her 2016 wall calendar is a great little item.  And I adore the sketches on her New York/Paris notebook.

Three. Red.  I am on the hunt for a red sheath dress for the office.  This Goat dress is a Kate Middleton favorite.  For something in a mid-price range, this Maggy London gathered dress is a nice option.  I also like this Tahari Origami dress.

Plus-size? Try this Kasper v-neck sheath.  Petite?  This Maeve Evangeline sheath is super chic.

Four. Buzz buzz.  This bee-embellished bracelet from Baublebar makes such a statement.  Their chunky Billow cuff mixes metal and sparkle in a really cool way.  For a subtle statement, this layered Pisa cuff is a must-have.

Five. The weather has been terrible out West–wet, humid, yuck.  It feels like my hair has been in a permanent updo since Christmas, so I’m searching for new ways to pin it up.  This plaited updo from Pinterest caught my eye.  I also like this laptop loop, and this pretty, slightly-crazy faux-hawk.

The Mondays: July 22, 2024

The Crowdstrike/Microsoft Meltdown forced me to take a few days off this weekend. No laptop. No billable hours. So we packed Sloane up for a visit to a local llama farm, stopped by the pool, went for coffee, etc. Few things are as funny as watching a 23-month old feed carrots to a ravenous rescue […]

The Range: Striped Summer Sets

Yes, it’s July 22nd, but there is a lot of living to do between now and the cooler weather. And given that three-digit temperatures are becoming shockingly common, you need something light. Enter the striped linen set. Wear it now, wear it next summer.

Styling White for Fall and Winter

A white or cream business suit is a great choice in the summer, but who needs to spend hundreds of dollars on a suit that they can only wear three months of the year? Here’s how to restyle your white or cream suit for fall/winter. Cream Suits vs. White Suits // For my money, a […]
