Halloween Costumes

I was not very creative this year - Little Red Riding Hood - so I channeled all my creativity into my roommates costume. He decided on Pinocchio and I got a call that he had nothing to wear yesterday, so at lunch I ran to Walmart and Target. And in only 2 stores I created this:

Mixed Patterns

Today I decided to mix stripes and florals and I chose neutral shoes so I didn't look like a hot mess. I was pretty happy with the outcome.

Fork and Screen

I may be the last person to experience this but Fork and Screen is the best way to see a movie! A waitress brings dinner and drinks while you watch in a movie in a relaxed- seating environment. Highly recommend this!

Pre-Halloween Decorating

I was a bit of a minimalist when it came to Halloween decorations this year, just a few simple pumpkins. But my roommates and I are hosting a frat-style halloween party Friday night that requires serious decoration. These include tarp wrapped around the house, removal of furniture and lights. I will post pics after....

Black Watch

I usually wear a gold watch of my dad's but I have been looking for a black watch. Something oversized and didn't want to buy the Michael Kors version I see everywhere. So for the astounding prince of $12 I found one at Walmart. When I find little gems like this it makes the extremely long line I was standing in totally worth it!

Clip Earrings

Last time I visited home we spent the afternoon at my Grandmother's house. She is moving to Denver so we came to help her clean out her house. I never suspected I would hit the jackpot of vintage costume clip earrings! Each pair is so beautiful and special. I can't wait to start working them into my accessories!

Bulletin Boards

I always notice in pictures of peoples work space a bulletin board of inspiration. I decided I should get one as wel.. Its a great place to keep magazine cut outs, invites, inspiration in any form. And it adds color and interest to a very bare spot on my wall!

Brownie Pops

Now that I live in a house I feel the need to cook (or bake really) much more often. Something about baking is calming to the soul. With Halloween approaching I wanted to try baking brownie pops. I made the brownies first in little mini muffin tins. After they cooled I melted orange and white baking chocolate. I flipped over the brownies and sliced off the top so they had a flat bottom and coated with the chocolate. While the chocolate was hardening I placed in the white paper sticks. After an hour the chocolate was cool and solid again so i could draw ghost eyes and pumpkin leaves.

Tapered Sweatpants

I definitely have better days at work if I am comfortable in what I have on, which is why finding work appropriate sweat pants was so exciting. They have great lines and a cropped tapered leg. I wore them with a white T and black pumps and a boyfriend blazer.

Todays Look: Game Day

I guess it wasn't actually today but Saturday's. We went to Park's Edge to enjoy bottomless mimosas and headed to Diesel to watch the Auburn game and I wanted a casual, loose fitting look. I paired a cropped shirt most wear to workout with boyfriend jeans and heels(because I can never bring myself to wear flats).

White...after Labor Day

I am pretty sure this rule applies to capri pants and sandals but regardless I break it all winter long. Today I wore a white blazer with jeans and nude heels,

Rent the Runway

I would love to be able to drop by Barneys or Neimans and just pick up a fantastic dress but I would then need to wake up and realize I don't exactly have a budget for such purchases. That being said a friend recently introduced me to Rent the Runway. Its a great member's only site that lets you borrow clothes for four days and return them after for a fraction of the retail cost!

Clothes on Loan

I think most girls have an article or two in their closet that actually belongs to a friend. Example, chocolate fur vest. My best friend(who I constantly admire) moved to Argentina for a year leaving me to "babysit" some of her favorite pieces. This vest was one of the pieces.

I am definitely a "know what I want" kind of shopper. I recently saw an ad for Old Navy that featured parkas. So I knew exactly what I wanted when I ran into Old Navy, no looking around, just in and out.

Kat's Wedding

Over the weekend I went to my sweet cousin's wedding. I wish I could spend more time with my family and weddings are the best opportunity for this! Since it was still really warm at home I decided on a black tube top and a knee length navy skirt. I have been saving this skirt for just the right occasion and was all to eager to put it on.

I welcomed my 29th year by taking the day off work to completely indulge in doing nothing! I had lunch with my roommate and a friend, got a mani/pedi and finished the day with drink at JCT Kitchen.

Drinks at the Palomar

Tonight my three roommates and I are heading to the Palomar Hotel for drinks on the rooftop. I jumped at the chance to wear more festive clothes, namely my sequin skirt. I paired it with a white t with a lace cutout back and black satin blazer. The weather is supposed to be amazing!

Head Wraps

I always admire head wraps, they always add a splash of color or interest to a look. I decided to try it out today with a maxi dress, leather jacket and combat boots. This transitioned into night since we had people over for a bonfire cookout.

Old School Skirt

For whatever reason I have a few articles of clothing from high school that sneak their way into my wardrobe. One of which is a little black skirt. It is such a little gem. The length and material work for casual or formal looks and it always saves the day when I over sleep and didn't plan my look the night before!

Leather Shorts

I have been on the lookout for a great pair of leather shorts. Something inexpensive preferably and I stumbled upon a great pair at Forever 21. Paired with a bright blue silk shirt and heels my look for Barbie birthday was complete.
