February Freeze roundup

     What was February Freeze, you're probably thinking? Well, I decided to wear those great things in my closet that never get worn. The truth is, while I own LOTS of clothes, there's a select few that regularly go through the wear-wash-iron cycle, while the rest hang around the closet, sad, lonely, and actually really lovely.

      Missed my original posts? 
See 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 5 1/2, 6, 7 or 8.
      For a short month, I think I did pretty well -- I wore 13 not-loved-enough items.
      Some thoughts:
  • Wow, I own a lot of blue.
  •  I love prints (the bigger, the better!), and that's OK.
  •  I like to buy dresses, but I'm not so great about wearing them. 
  • To not be afraid of bold jewelry. Starting to love that red necklace!
  • White is such a refreshing change from the usual denim and black. 
  • I had fun doing this challenge, and overall I'm pretty happy with this month's outfits, probably because I spent less time wearing my usual tee and jeans and forced myself to take style risks.
Favorite outfits: 2, 4, 5, 5.5, and 7.
Style stretches: 2, 5, 7
Classic: 4
Simple yet put-together: 4, 5

Which one is your favorite?


  1. I actually like 6 and 8 and 5.5 :) This is a great way to see what you have worn in the month :)

    I think 5.5 and 7 were my favorite.

  3. 5 1/2 rocks my world! So pretty and with that necklace that I'm going to (steal) recreate!

    I love challenges like this that force us to think outside of the box and help our style grow. Way to wear your closet :)

  5. Thank you, Kelley! It's kind of amazing/embarrassing how much stuff I already have ...

  6. Can't wait to see your take on the necklace, Erin! :)

  7. Thank you, Rebecca! My cousin buys some very nice stuff, and she's generous enough to pass it on when she doesn't want it anymore ...

  8. Kat -- I'm sad that Picnik is closing in a few months and I just figured out how to make collages! It is really interesting to put a bunch of outfits together and see what patterns show up. :)

  9. This is SUCH a great idea - it's so fun finding new potential in old items - great job :)
