Fake It 'Till Ya Make It

Now that it's February, I feel the need to start wearing more pop-y colors.  More reds, corals, pinks... you know, V-day and all that.  But to be honest, I'm so pumped about that.  January is easily my least favorite month of the year.  Blah-fest.  So here's to neon, pops of color and wearing clothes I totally freeze in, but shoot, I'm just sick of layering and socks.  Take that winter.
(Tee Urban Outfitters, Blazer H&M, Pants J.Crew, Shoes Payless, Sunnies H&M, Watch Michael Kors, Bracelets Madewell/J.Crew)

Seriously.  I've been dying to be warm.  I've been #TBT-ing my past tropical trips on Instagram {@julie_cottrell}, stalking people on tropical trips {why is everyone in Playa Del Carmen!?  Luckies...}, wearing reflective sunnies and bright colors, I even started tanning. Frequently.  All December I think I used my monthly tanning pass once.  The past couple weeks I've quadrupled that.  And then some - and I don't even care.  What are you tricks for getting through the crazy winter?  Please do share.  I'm dying over here.
