february crush list!

1. army jackets For a long time, I was all about the bomber jacket; but while I still love aviator styles, I've seriously been feeling infirmary-style army jackets as of late. I love the way they look with everything from skirts and floral dresses to skinny jeans and cutoff denim; and the slightly masculine, oversize fit is just perfect for getting a little dirty. At the moment, I'm seriously crushing on Current/Elliott's The Infantry Jacket in ARMY {perfect aesthetic}, Nili Lotan's Army Jacket in CAMO {ideal for colder temps}, and THE GREAT.'s The Swing Army Jacket in BEAT UP ARMY {fashion-forward in an un-fussy way}.

2. forest Green has been one of my favorite colors forever, but lately I'm digging it for makeup - specifically if it's in the forest green family. Eyes, nails, what have you...it's just divine in an unexpected yet utterly luxe way. At the moment my top picks are: Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in MILDEW, Sephora Collection's Colorful Eyeshadow in SIR YES SIR!, and Julep's Nail Color in JADE {wearing this on my nails now!}.

3. antique gold Hematite, rose gold, white gold...I've obsessed over all of the above {and then some}; but right now I am super swoony over antique gold when it comes to jewelry. The burnished touch and olive undertones lend such a Victorian feel to the aesthetic that perfectly blends modern with nostalgic. My top picks: BaubleBar's Scorpio Drops, Aurora Tassel Lariat, and Gala Ear Crawlers. Aren't they stunning?

4. slimpack I spend 90% of my time running around with my dog or nephews, making a functional yet fashionable boot mandatory for my day to day. I typically rely on my Hunter's, but since I've been contemplating taking up horseback riding {haven't done it since I was a kid!}, I've set my sights on Sorel's Slimpack Riding Boot in SHALE and NORI. The aesthetic is so much fun; and the fact that they'll easily accomodate marshy terrain or stirrups is a total plus. I may need to pick them up in both colors!

I've heard forest and army green are supposed to be popular in coming months. I've seen some lovely jackets starting to come into the stores.
