Halloween Inspired Date Night Outfit

IMG_4215IMG_4227IMG_4311IMG_4291

Happy Friday my friends!  I can’t believe it’s already October 20th!  I find that October is always a super busy month, so B and I had to make sure we fit some one on one date time in between all of the scheduled activities.  My birthday is the day before Halloween and I have always felt drawn to the October color palette as a result.  During the rest of the year I don’t usually pair orange with black, but if there were ever a perfect time to do it it’s ten days before Halloween!

Wearing Blush in October

Hey y’all, welcome back!  Today I want to talk about ways to wear your lighter colors through the fall. I think it’s one of my responsibilities as a blogger to not only tell you what items I think you should add to your closet, but more importantly ways to wear those items again and again.  Midi skirts are a staple in my wardrobe, and therefore I love finding new ways to wear them as late as my bare legs will let me!  So if you ever bought a blush pleated midi skirt because of me, this post is dedicated to you.

My first step was these fabulous leopard booties, and then paired it with this maroon sweater.  With the blush anchored in darker hues, it blends it seamlessly through a see of October colors!

Early Fall Essentials

IMG_0839IMG_0858IMG_0871IMG_0834IMG_0846

Hello everyone, Happy Friday!  I hope you all saw Wednesday’s post – if you haven’t yet make sure you enter the giveaway!  It’s been such a pleasure sharing my life and style with you all over the past three years, I can’t wait to keep doing more of it!

Today’s post features all of my must have pieces for September and the early fall weather.  A heavy midi skirt like this crochet one in a fall color such as olive (though this one comes in five more colors here and here!)  My trusty denim jacket will continue to grace my outfits as the temps dip colder at night, and these leopard print pumps have started to work their way back into my outfits at last!

Bridging Seasons

Hey everyone, happy Friday!  Today I want to talk about those times of year that are a bit tricky to dress for: transition months.  My tried and true formula for September is to stick with warm weather basics (skirts, open toe shoes, etc) in autumn appropriate hues. I will hold on to every last bit of summer for as long as I can, but this look was a great way to start incorporating some of my new purchases while staying comfortable during the last days of summer.

Fall Fabrics

Hello everyone, welcome back!  Lately I have been scoping out the fall fashion scene, so I took a look back into my closet to see what items I always wear during autumn months.  Leather and denim are two staples that I can’t imagine going through October without!  Paired together, they make a chic combination that will transition well from cool August days (with sandals) into colder days with a pair of ankle boots!

Hello everyone, welcome back!  Do any of you have any exciting plans for the weekend?? Michaela and I are heading to New York again for some beach and family time, so make sure to follow along on Instagram and Snapchat (@chummer17).

I love pairing together colors close on the color wheel, and blush and red are no exception.

Pretty in Pineapple

Hello everyone, welcome back!  Today’s skirt is an absolute dream.  Every time I walked past this pattern in the J.Crew window at the mall I started daydreaming about us doing everything together.  Working together, going to brunch together, taking long walks on the beach talking about our future…

But really.  This pattern and the colors are an absolute dream.  I love the pineapple pattern, but it’s not too obvious and predictable as yellow and green, so it gives off the vibe that you can wear and re-wear it as many times in as many ways as you could possibly dream!

Outfit Details – Chambray: American Eagle (old, similar here) | Skirt: J.Crew (also available in top, dress, and heels!) | Heels: Vince Camuto (old, similar here)
