Can you believe Halloween is next week? My Facebook feed is already filling up with friends posting pictures of their Halloween costumes. If you need a last minute Halloween costume, don’t fret. Shop your closet!
Last year I got this cute J.O.A. Ruffle Mini Dress (c/o Shopbop) to wear for a pageant interview. I’ve worn it once since the pageant. While I wish my life required more opportunities to dress up, Halloween is a fun reason to dig out clothes you otherwise have no occasion to wear.
To get this look, I paired my red dress with the Berkshire Women’s Trend City Cable Control Top Tight (c/o Lipton Publicity) and my new L.K. Bennett Sledge pumps. The white gloves were once my mom’s, and the gold wristlet is from Coach.
I curled my hair and twisted it into a bun then swiped on some red lipstick to finish off the look. This idea can, also, be a really cute couples costume. Bonus points if you can get your guy to dress up as a Sugar Daddy.

It’s officially fall, which means it’s time to focus on autumn style goals. While September is proving to be unusually warm (we’re talking 90 degree days), cooler temps are right around the corner. Cozy sweaters, blankets scarves, and stylish boots will all be making appearances this season, but there are a few other pieces I […]
I can no longer deny that fall has arrived. The trees are changing colors. The leaves are falling, littering the ground. And, temps are now dipping into the 40’s. I don’t mind so much because fall in the Midwest is beautiful, but I dread the thought of winter. I was not made for cold weather. […]
I’m finding it hard to remember a summer where the days felt so long and the months so short. Every day feels like a countdown to the next event. Then, the event happens, and I can’t believe how quickly time is passing. I’ve got that summertime sadness. This Madewell denim dress (c/o Shopbop) made an appearance […]
School has started in my town, which seems way too soon to me. I’m not ready to think about the end of summer. But, the leaves have started changing, and occasionally, I catch a whiff of fall in the air. While it’s not quite time to pack up my skirts and bring out my sweaters, […]
