The Steele Maiden: Valentine's Day Outfits
I made a point to take it easy this weekend – escaping the city to meet up with family and soak in a little small town charm. Call it the calm before the ‘more snow, hectic work schedule, NYFW’ storm kicking off this week.  Oh, and spreading a little Valentine’s Day love. Read more for a round up of outfit options and a few other musings.

WEEKEND UPDATE

Happy February! Between Fashion Week and kicking off my half marathon training (will be sharing my tips and tricks this time around!) – I’ve got big plans for the month.  And honestly, since it’s freezing out and they’re calling for another snow storm to hit NY tonight, I am mainly just happy that we’re one month closer to Spring. Here are a few other things on my radar…-While Marsala (a deep wine-stained hue) is the color of 2015, Pantone has highlighted Aquamarine (an icy baby blue shade) as one of the top shades of Spring and I’m totally on board. These suede heels and this simple shift dress are perfect examples.-One of my favorite UK brands Missguided just launched an activewear line and I’ll be trying it out this week at a JumpLife class (cardio meets mini trampolines?! Wish me luck..). These leggings are my favorite so far but I’m excited to see how their gear performs.-Who’s ready to watch the Puppy Bowl I mean Super Bowl tonight? My friend Alyssa from Runway Chef shared this new take on nachos that would be perfect for a game day snack.-This past week (as I was frantically trying to find an outfit for work) Adam mentioned that some of the greatest minds wear the same thing to work every single day. Apparently creating a uniform (cartoon character-style) takes one decision off your mind, and so the theory goes, allows you to focus on other more important matters. While I tend to think what I wear (especially working in fashion) does matter, I like the idea of creating more streamlined routines to ease my day. Have any of you put this into practice? I’m dying to read this book to learn even more.Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I’ll see you back here tomorrow!
