Style you Sunday: Halloween 2 - cowgirl

Happy Halloween!  If you are off to trick or treat tonight and still don't have a costume, here's another one you can put together quickly.  Take your favorite summer jean skirt, a flannel top from your hubby/bro/boyf,  if you don't have cowboy boots- pick up these Old Navy ones that are pretty cheap(!), add a belt, a horse stuffed animal from your childhood collection (or from your child), and of course a cowboy hat!  Don't forget to learn how to tie a lasso... and you're off to trick or treat!

Or maybe you want to be a witch? Have a great Halloween!

Loving the Halloween festive-ness of these 2 homes in my neighborhood....check out more Halloween faves here, and enjoy your weekend!!! See you Monday with my Halloween in NYC wrap up. :)


"If I Die Young"

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song...

Love this song by country band, The Band Perry. A nice reminder to live life to the fullest- check out the meaning of the lyrics here.

Style you Sunday: Halloween - witch

Halloween is less than one week away.  If you are heading to a party Saturday night and are stumped, here is a quick be-witching costume that is pretty easy to put together!

Take a fabulous LBD you probably already own, add boots (OTK works best, I'd say!), paint your nails red, line your eyes, purchase a witch hat, grab your broom and.... trick or treat!

Stay tuned for next week's Style you Sunday for another last minute costume.

What I'm Wearing Wednesday

Good morning and happy Wednesday! 
It's beginning to feel a lot like fall...the leaves are changing, mornings are very crisp (45 degrees today), and it's basically dark by 6:30.  With apple picking checked off the fall to-do list, I am looking forward to a good old football game this weekend to see the boys of fall...

Today I am wearing:
  • Lulu's striped top & black tank top
  • Floral cardy from Macy's
  • Anlo jeans- I replaced the one's I ripped in April.
  • Suede black slouch boots- bought last winter
  • Rose gold vintage earrings from the Brooklyn Flea
