February 2021 #wearitlike_challenge Outfits (Part 1)

Happy post-Valentine's Day everyone! This is usually a busy time for me, what with Val Day just a week after my partner's birthday, then my own after that. Occasionally family visits during the long weekend. Usually Restaurant Week is happening as well, and it also happens to be the shortest month of the year to top it off! Somehow, even not having returned to restaurant life yet and with the pandemic keeping me around the apartment, I'm *still* busy during this time. So I'm taking my typical 2/15 breather to enjoy a slice of cake and get all my ducks in a row for the remainder of the month. Including sharing these photos with you!

The #wearitlike_challenge was born from an idea I saw on Reddit, to research and dress like favorite television characters on one's birthday month. I expanded this out to include movie characters, made a list, and refined it all through January. At the start of the month, I opened up the challenge to my IG community, encouraging others to "wear it like" the character of the day, and while there's definitely been more observation than participation, I'm having a blast living out all my fashion icon fantasies! For a few characters I couldn't help myself and created more than one look.

Below you'll see the first ten characters of the challenge, and I'll be back with the remaining ten at month's end. If style challenges are something that interest you, check out my Instagram profile for more details! (Specifically under the "Challenge" button in my highlights.)
