Halloween is tomorrow and I can hardly believe it. I feel like for most of the year leading up to Halloween, we bounce around “great ideas” for what we should dress as, but without fail, those last weeks leading up to my favorite holiday are spent scrambling to put something together. I’ve decided that worst case scenario, an all black outfit, a bit of gold accessories, and a scarf-turned-head-wrap creates a gypsy-like look that works as the easiest last-minute, makeshift costume around.
You know those days or weeks where you could really just use a vacation? I may not really be on vacation but that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be nice to run away to a warm beach or quite cabin for a few days. Leaving town isn’t exactly an option, but escaping in a good book, a long drive, or just a few hours of a mindless tv marathon can sometimes do the trick.
Silvery accents dressed up this slinky silk dress just enough so as not to compete with the casual vibe only a denim jacket can provide. It was the perfect balance for some beautiful autumn weather. Not to mention the serious vintage-vibe I felt wearing this dress that made it the ideal outfit for breaking in my newest shades. Round-style sunglasses always feel just a little bit retro.
Bows and florals don’t necessarily seem like the obvious choice for graphic sweatshirts and piles of chain necklaces, but sometimes the least obvious choice just works. This is the kind of pairing that’s been my go to lately and I’m loving it. You can’t knock an outfit that’s comfortable and pulled together at the same time.
Events in the fall can be tough to dress for. It’s not quite cold enough for tights and wool coats, but it’s definitely too cool for open toes and bare arms. For night’s out that aren’t too formal but require a little extra effort, I’m digging the idea of putting a soft, baby blue dress with a chunky, navy poncho sweater for a monochromatic look that borders between sweet and unstructured. And mixing in an oxblood, ankle strap shoe adds a little more richness.
