Halloween for Grown-Ups

The month of October kind of inspires me to push the envelope a bit with my clothes and accessories. I might experiment a bit more with some darker nail polish or do a daytime smoky eye. I might go for a pair of printed tights instead of the usual black. (This may not seem out-of-the-box for some, but for me, it is.)

To me, the month of October and All Hallow’s Eve allows you to be a little more playful with your attire. Here are a few Halloween-inspired everyday pieces that I’m coveting right now:

Polka Dot Flouncy Dress - ONLY $39!

Rachel Zoe Corduroy Flare Pants

Pilgrim Wolf Ring from ASOS

Black Ponte Peplum Top from Dorothy Perkins

Plate and Spike Detail Waist Belt from ASOS

Prairie3 Velvet Ankle Boots from Topshop

Armed and Ready by Essie
Stila Eyeshadow in Rocker
Criss Cross Faux Eyelashes - my all-time fav!

Major announcement: On October 31, I’ll be having a blog sale! From blouses and jeans, to dresses and shoes, I’ll be selling some of the goodies from my closets. (Yep, plural. I had so many clothes that I dominate our master closet, as well as the closet in one of our guest rooms. Oops.) I’m ready to stock up on some new fall cuteness, but need somewhere to put it!

I plan to actually post the items via Facebook rather than here on the blog, so stay tuned for more details. Also, if you think you might want to buy, please go ahead and set up a Paypal account. That will be the way in which I’ll be accepting payment : )

Be blessed, lovelies- 


  1. love that essie nail polish color! xo


  2. Those purple corduroy pants are too cute!!

    I mentioned you in my blog post yesterday! Check it out!!


  3. I am LOVING the peplum top and cord flairs. Gorgeous!! I wouldn't mind having either of those magically appear in my closet right about now.


  4. I've been feeling the same way this October! That peplum top is fabulous!

  5. Get it girl! Fall is the best time to experiment with layers and darker nails! Woot!

  6. Cute choices. I really want some shoes with spikes on them for some strange reason.

  7. Love the false eyelashes and look for any excuse to wear some!

  8. I love that polka dot flouncy dress! I love it so much that I allllllmost bought it...but I am exercising self control after weeks of, well, not exercising self control :)

  9. Too bad I think I'm the same size as you but absolutely cannot do any shopping after everything I spent on Vacation. Boo! BTW-is it cool to have your pant so long that your feet look as if they've been photo shopped out of the pic like with the Rachel Zoe pants? Just wondering! I'm tall so that probably would never happen to me but I thought there was an appropriate fall length for pants. Figured you'd know.

  10. Love it! And totally agree- such great Ideas! Those pants are too great!
