Happy Halloween

Halloween is a good excuse to wear lots of fall colors and to dress up in slightly ridiculous outfits.

orange cardigan | gap
black chiffon button tank | old navy
silk floral skirt | alfani, thrifted
I wore this combo with my riding boots for work today since my boss wasn't extremely fond of dressing up.

Wishlist 10.31
Here is my current wish list!

1. Accent Scarf in English Rose | Vera Bradley, $40 ~ these awesome scarves come out on Friday and I am so excited to pick up a few! Still trying to narrow down my color list BUT I think this color would look great over some of my solid colored dresses.
2. Mint Draped Sweater | WalMart, $13.98 ~ This sweater comes in three colors and looks so cozy. It's only available online so I think I might order one to see how it fits and then order another. The chunky knit would look great under a statement necklace, scarf or blazer.
3. Statement Bib Necklace | Charlotte Russe, $6 ~ This necklace looks a lot like the Pearl Bib from a fraction of the price.  I already have this in mint but I'd love to expand my collection.

Happy Halloween!

what I wore

I feel like it's been so long since I've posted so I figured I'd start with a run down of the past week or so in outfits.

deep purple cardigan | costco, last season
purple paisley shift dress | dressbarn
glittery purple skinny belt | walmart
necklace | charming charlie's
silver bracelet | versona
I jokingly referred to this outfit as 50 shades of purple to a friend, but I think it's a pretty accurate name.  I paired it with black leggings and tan boots since it has been getting cold lately and got a ton of compliments on how well put together the end result was.

pink 3/4 sleeve cardigan | costco, old
navy bird print tank | old navy
khaki chino pants | h&m
I'm loving the animal silhouette trend that seems to be catching on lately because they add a memorable detail to my favorite combo: cardigans + chinos.

cream and black lace a-line dress | h&m, fall sale ($10)
black skinny belt | walmart
 The skinny belts I bought out of the kids' department at WalMart have been so versatile.  I'm thinking I may expand the collection soon by adding a gold sequined one from Target.

white cardigan | old navy
ikat printed top | target
yellow bubble necklace | blue bird bride  on etsy
blue chino pants | h&m
I found this top as I was digging through my dresser the other day and remembered that I'd only worn it once since buying it for $10 on sale at Target.  I think this outfit would look even cuter with a yellow or cobalt blue cardigan instead of white.

polka dot chambray button up | old navy
black dress | boutique
statement necklace | charming charlie's
peacock patterned tights | apt. 9
I was in love with this outfit. I bought these gorgeous tights in preparation for fall and I think they are so fun.  Looking forward to finding different ways to wear them.

today's outfit:
blue gingham button up | old navy
cream sweater | polo ralph lauren
blue chino pants | h&m
Sweaters over button ups always keep me warm and I get cold pretty easily so this combo will be popping up quite frequently :)

What are your favorite combos for fall?
