Beiges and Creams... and GIVEAWAY!

February is one of my favorite months! There's Valentine's Day (I just love it for all the heart shaped things everywhere), my anniversary with my fiance, and my two cats' birthdays. So, I thought I would kick this month off with a giveaway! Here I am sporting a monochromatic look in creams and beiges with a subtle mix of textures. I've got leather on my sleeves, two different kinds of knit, pleated ruffles, and snake print. This cable knit cowl by Megan E Sass Handknits adds such an interesting element to the outfit and really completes the look, at first glance it looks like it's part of the sweater!

  11. Thank you for posting this giveaway!! I absolutely love meganEsass' items. I've bought several presents for others from her, but have no scarfs for myself! I'd wear this cowl with an oversized, slouchy sweater, leggings, and moccasin heels. It'd be super cute (and warm) for the winter. e:

  12. Hey Toshiko!
    I love this knit cowl, it looks so sweet with your top knot bun!
    I'd probably pair this with a cardigan, tee and jeans. Not anything too fancy to take away from how awesome the cableknit is.
    And I love the "sky" color choice- I have a lot of grays, pinks and other neutrals in my wardrobe but I've been looking for the perfect touch of light blue!
