Happy Halloween!

Do you love the Lilly Pulitzer October print as much as I do?  It's one of my favorite prints in this year's agenda, plus the matching pumpkin sticker is adorable and so fun! 

I'm usually not a huge fan of cats... I'm much more of a dog person, but kittens are just so darn cute sometimes!  When I saw this picture online I thought I just had to share it's cuteness with y'all.

Happy Halloween!

Halloween Decorations

It's almost Halloween, so now is the time to break out those pumpkins and start carving!  I love decorating with pumpkins, witches and ghosts, but I have a hard time finding cute Halloween decorations that don't look too childish.  This is where the always reliable Pottery Barn steps in.  How fun are these newsprint pumpkins?  Pottery Barn has a fabulous selection of timeless and sophisticated holiday decorations.  

Do you enjoy decorating for Halloween?

Boxwood Paper Co.

I love getting e-mails from Rue La La, Shop It To Me or One Kings Lane, particularly when they are having a sale on a brand or item that I love!

With Christmas right around the corner, now is the perfect time to pay extra close attention to any and all sales... Wow, I can't believe I'm already starting to talk about Christmas and Halloween isn't even behind us, but it's never too early to start thinking about the perfect gift. 

This week One Kings Lane is featuring Boxwood Paper Co.

A custom monogrammed iPhone case is a great stocking stuffer or gift for a girl friend.

Fun Halloween Movies

I am not very into Halloween.  Don't get me wrong, I love getting dressed up in fun costumes.  But, being scared... I hate!  I don't like haunted houses or horror films.  I stick to pumpkins and Disney movies during Halloween... and don't forget the candy (yum, yum).  One of my favorite parts of October (and Halloween) is watching ABC Family's lineup of Halloween movies and shows.


It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Hocus Pocus 


Casper Meets Wendy

What are your favorite Halloween movies?

bows, bows, bows

Bow accessories and accents on clothing seem to be the trend these days, but I'm not complaining... I love it!  Bow belts, jewelry, shoes, just about anything with a bow is magnificent, don't you think? 

What's your favorite bow trend?

shades of green

Green is one of my favorite colors for fall and winter.  It is dark enough to be perfect for cooler days, but bright and colorful enough to be warn in Florida when it's 80+ degrees in November.

winter jackets

Winter clothes are so much fun!  I love layering clothes and mixing and matching fun sweaters and jackets during the colder days of the year.  J.Crew (and the Factory store) has quite a selection of styles and colors.  My typical go-to jacket during the winter is a simple navy peacoat, but I also have a red coat from the J.Crew Factory store and a navy blazer for days that aren't quite as cold.

Tory Burch Sale

Scroll through some of these great Tory Burch sale items.


OPI Germany Collection

Last week was my birthday, so I got a mani/pedi!  I decided to step way outside the box (for me) with the new OPI Germany collection.  I usually stick to colors in the red, orange or pink color ranges, but this fall I decided to try out a grey.  It is important to find the right shade of grey for your skin tone and since I am so pale I was really nervous about trying grey, but I am so happy I did!  I am in love with this color.

The color online (and below) doesn't look as grey as it looks in person.

Have you tried any of the new OPI Germany collection?

Orange Cords

Recently, I have been obsessed with my orange corduroy pants from J.Crew.  I have been dying to dress in fall clothes, but as usual Florida has been way to warm... until this week!  The past few days it has been in the 60s until mid morning and has only been highs in the low-80s.  Not quite fall weather yet, but really pleasant temperatures.

tweed jackets

I am in love with all the tweed at J.Crew right now.  Tweed is so fun and perfect for fall, don't you think? Adding a tweed jacket is a easy way to spruce up any outfit... Whether it's for work, class or the weekend tweed adds a little something extra to an otherwise dull outfit.

Today I turn 23-years-old.  So much has changed in my 23 years on this earth.  I was born in the last year of the 1980's, so I was only around for a grand total of 3-months of the 80's.  I am a 90's child!

The 1990s, in my opinion was a great decade.  Technology was just beginning to grow.  Cell phones and the Internet were new.  Newspapers were still the main news source.  Reality TV had not yet taken over every channel... Those were the days!

Remember these 90's gems?

3. Boy Meets World

4. Limited Too

5. Furby

What are some of your favorite 90's memories?

shades of orange

It is finally starting to cool off, well at least "cool" for Florida.  So I can finally start to wear my early fall clothes.  I am so ready to wear cords and scarves!  Right now, I am love all these orange pieces.  Orange is such a perfect fall color, don't you think?

How do you wear shades of orange?
