8 Ways To Dress For Your Favorite Fall Activities

Who's ready for Halloween? I can't believe it's less than two weeks away! If you're like me and you have to work Halloween night then you'll be celebrating a little the next two weekends actually ;) So, what are your plans for Halloween and the fall season in general? This weekend I'm going to the Texas Renaissance Festival and then next weekend I'm having a bonfire/Halloween party at my house. I'm so excited for both events and I can't wait until they get here. The biggest question I always have when planning an event is what the heck am I gonna wear?? Maybe that's just the shopaholic fashionista in me coming out, but I'm sure sometimes you find yourself wondering the same thing. To help you out I've put together 8 outfits that will be perfect for all those fun fall activities that you have coming up. Each outfit represents a different activity, but you can always mix and match each one to go with your own personal style. So, what are these awesome outfit and activity ideas???

#1-Scary movie night with the girls
Who doesn't love watching scary movies? Ok so maybe they're not for everyone, but I'm sure you watch at least one during Halloween. Personally, I have a few classics that I have to watch every year including A Nightmare On Elm Street and Carrie only to name a couple. This year why not go out to a scary movie with your girlfriends. I'm sure there are a few theaters near you that will be showing some for Halloween. For this fun activity I picked the cutest black and white striped cardigan with a black undershirt and paired it with black distressed skinny jeans and black booties. I love this outfit because it's classic black and white and not too dressy but still super cute in case you happen to run into a cutie at the movies ;) Plus you'll want to dress in layers because it gets really cold in the theater. You can shop this look HERE.

#2-Fall festival
I love going to fall festivals! They are so fun and the food is always delicious...yes I go for the food mostly. LOL This year my company is hosting a family fall fun day but unfortunately it's the same day as my bonfire so I won't be able to make it. Hopefully I get to make it out to the local pumpkin patch at the very least. If I was going to the festival I'd wear something similar to this outfit. The color orange is perfect for fall so I chose a super cute orange turtleneck sweater and paired it with some cute high waisted skinny jeans, brown booties, and an adorable striped purse in beautiful fall colors. This outfit screams fall and looks really comfortable. You can shop this look HERE.

I'm not sure if this is just a southern thing or if people in the north have these, but bonfires are one of my favorite fall activities. I'm so ready for the one I'll be hosting next weekend. I'm ready for the weenie roasting, the toasted marshmallows, and of course sitting around the fire telling stories and just enjoying the company of good friends. This outfit is very similar to what I plan to wear actually. I love oversized sweaters especially for an outdoor event on a cold night so I chose this comfy looking blue sweater and paired it with some dark blue skinny jeans and brown casual boots. I LOVE these shoes for fall and winter. My boyfriend thinks they're ugly but they are so cozy and comfy he can just get over it. LOL You can shop this look HERE.

#4-Haunted tour or scavenger hunt
I've read a couple of fellow bloggers' posts who have suggested a couples scavenger hunt for the fall and I'm totally down. If you live in a city that has haunted tours of the town then you could do that instead, but my small little town doesn't have any type of tour like this so I'll go with the scavenger hunt...if I can ever get my boyfriend to participate. LOL For this activity I'd wear an outfit like the one I chose. I love plaid for fall. This shirt is so cute and would be perfect for a day or night spent walking around town. I paired this cutie with some dark blue skinny jeans and a pair of tan boots. While I love wearing heeled booties for the fall I wouldn't wear them when I'm doing a lot of walking so these cute boots are a better choice and they look just as cute. You can shop this look HERE.

#5-Fall Party
Who has a fall party to go to? I love getting invited to parties and I really try to make each and every one especially during this time of the year. There's just something about going to a party in a comfortable sweater and hopefully getting a caramel apple that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. This year I'm throwing my own party in the form of a bonfire so I'll be dressing down, but if I were going to someone else's party I'd wear something similar to this adorable outfit. I love thick cable knit sweaters and I really wish it was cold enough here in Texas to be able to wear them more, but I would certainly wear this to an indoor fall party. I paired this beautiful ivory cable knit sweater with some skinny jeans, a pair of heeled lace up booties, and a really cute purse. I love wearing heeled booties and since I'd be at a party where I could sit down if I needed to I'd break them out :) You can shop this look HERE.

#6-Rock Concert
I chose this activity because it's one of my favorite things to do all year long but especially during the fall when the weather cools down seeing as most of the concerts I attend are outside. I'm a metal head at heart so going to see my favorite metal band is such an amazing experience. There's a type of energy in the crowd that's hard to explain unless you've ever been to one. This is probably the only thing my best friend and I have in common so it's always nice to get together with her and rock out :) I chose this outfit because it's something I'd definitely wear to a rock concert and so would my bestie. An awesome skull t-shirt is a must so I chose this black one and paired it with some black skinny jeans and black Dr. Martens. The difference between me and my bestie is I'd only wear this to the concert and she would wear this every day. LOL You can shop this look HERE.

#7-Haunted house
Haunted houses are a must for me during October and I'm actually bummed that I'm not going to make it to one this year :( I know they're not for the faint of heart, but just remember they are actors and they can't touch you. This always keeps me from getting too scared. The only time they get me is when they jump out of nowhere. That will scare the crap out of just about anyone. LOL I chose the following outfit because it resembles something I've worn to a haunted house in the past. I love this long sleeve Halloween shirt. It looks super comfortable and it's really cute. I paired it with medium blue distressed skinny jeans and some black converse sneakers. Please do NOT wear open toe shoes to a haunted house. I have made that mistake and it cost me my big toenail (I got startled and ran into the back of the guy in front of me who was wearing combat boots) so take my advice and wear a comfy pair of shoes like these cute sneakers. You can shop this look HERE.

#8-Date night
If you don't really celebrate Halloween or plan to go to any festivals or other fall activities, I'm sure you will at least have a date night. Heck, if I was off on Halloween night I'd be doing a date night with my sweetie because I'm too old to trick or treat. HAHA. Date night can be anything you want it to be but I love to eat so I'd want dinner. When my sweetie takes me out to a nice dinner I like to wear outfits that resemble this one. Black is a great color for fall because you can wear all your wonderful printed scarves with it and not have to worry about it not matching. I chose this pretty little black long sleeve dress that is perfect for fall and paired it with these amazing knee high black boots and of course a plaid blanket scarf. I am OBSESSED with scarves this year so this is the perfect outfit for my date nights to come :) You can shop this look HERE

Which of these activities would you like to do for this fall season? How would you dress for it? Would you wear the outfit I chose for your favorite activity? How would you dress differently? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be sure to spread the love and share this post with all your friends so they too will know what to wear for their upcoming fall activities. I hope you have an amazing weekend and happy shopping :)

Mixed Print Peasant Top

Happy hump day everyone!! It's so hard to believe this week is already halfway over, but it is :) I'm so excited today because tonight is my last night of work for the week then I'm off for the next four days!! Yaaayyy. So, I'm ready to get this day started by sharing with you a gorgeous top I found while out shopping a couple of weekends ago. This is the perfect top for fall and I'm sure you'll love it as much as I do. So, where did I find this amazing top and where can you snag one for yourself?

The Top
I spotted this beautiful peasant top while shopping at Francesca's a couple of weekends ago and I knew I had to have it especially when I saw the price was less than $40. I love how there are three different prints on this top but somehow they all come together quite nicely. Normally I don't like mixing prints, but when the mixed prints are all on the same article of clothing I'll make an exception. Not only are the prints mixed but there are also three different colors on this top too which makes styling it a breeze. This is a great top for fall for a couple of reasons. First off this fall season is all about floral and this top has two different floral patterns on it. And second, this top has longer sleeves but isn't too thick so it's perfect for the slightly cooler temperatures of fall. Unfortunately this color and pattern is no longer available online so I linked a similar top for you or you can take a shopping trip to Francesca's and hopefully find one of these beauties for yourself. So, how did I end up styling this beauty and how can you change it up to match your style?

My Style
This top is extremely retro so I toyed with the idea of wearing super flared leg jeans and wedges, but I decided to dress it up a bit while keeping my style casual so I wore my favorite pair of skinny jeans from Hollister and my awesome lace up pointed toe black flats that I got from Burke's Outlet instead. These skinny jeans are AMAZING!! They are high waisted and super stretchy so they are really comfortable. Not to mention they are distressed which is awesome! And let's talk about these shoes. I get so many compliments on these shoes everywhere I go and they are so perfect that I wear them with almost everything. I seriously need a pair of these cuties in every color. If you'd like to change it up a bit you could always wear the aforementioned flared leg jeans and wedges or you could even do a cute pair of booties. Don't forget your blue jean jacket or bomber jacket for when the temperature drops ;)

Isn't this top super adorable? How would you style it differently? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Don't forget to spread the love by sharing this post with all your friends who would love this top. I hope you enjoy this amazing hump day and happy shopping :)

Must Have Monday

Hey everyone and happy Monday! It seems like forever since I've written a post when in reality it's only been a few days. LOL I guess that's what happens when you go from posting five times a week down to three. But, I did get a lot of stuff done for my eBay business and hopefully soon I'll be doing that full time and maybe on my way to opening an online boutique. Fingers crossed for me ladies :) I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was awesome! I got to go shopping with one of my best friends and I spent some much needed quality time with my sweetie. I'm really looking forward to this coming weekend though...not only do I have four days off but I'm going to the Renaissance festival and I couldn't be more excited!!! Ok enough about me and my plans because today is Monday and that means I have found some great must haves that I think you'll love. So, what did I find this week?...

Must Have Items
Who loves wearing super cute Halloween tees? They are literally everywhere right now and some of them have the cutest sayings on them so I decided that this week I would make a list of the five cutest Halloween tees that you simply must have. I searched my amazing Polyvore app again and found some great tees with some pretty funny sayings on them. I've linked all these tees HERE for you in case you would like to snag one for yourself ;)

1-"Nightmare Before Coffee" tee (Amazon,$19)
2-"Resting Witch Face" tee (Etsy,$25)
3-"Boo Y'all" tee (Amazon,$17)
4-"Pumpkin Spice And Everything Nice" tee (Amazon,$20)
5-"Don't Make Me Get My Flying Monkeys" tee (Zulily,$17)

All of these tees are definitely something I'd wear. I love the movie A Nightmare Before Christmas so the first tee would be perfect for me. And yes I am a nightmare before coffee. LOL The resting witch face tee would be the perfect match for the coffee mug I gave away on my recent giveaway. This tee describes me completely and now I have to have it. Boo Y'all is such a cute tee because it sounds like something we'd say down here in the south and it's just so darn cute. The pumpkin spice tee I threw in because it says the words pumpkin spice and who doesn't love those words right now?! The last one is a personal favorite of mine because The Wizard Of Oz is my favorite movie of all time and I love anything that's related to the movie! Plus this tee is super cute and fun. I've linked some more Halloween tees that aren't pictured HERE so you should certainly check those out. Who knows, you could find the perfect one for you ;)

Aren't these tees super cute? Which one is your favorite? Have you seen a Halloween tee lately with a funny saying on it? What was it? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be sure to spread the love by sharing this post with all your friends who love Halloween. I hope you have an amazing week and happy shopping :)

3 Ways To Wear Those New Fall Booties

Who's excited that fall is finally here? I know I sure am! I love everything about fall from the wonderful pumpkin spice drinks to the cooler light sweater weather. Unfortunately here in Texas it's still too hot to wear a sweater but I started wearing my new fall booties as soon as the temperatures dropped into the 80s. Yes you read that right...80s in October!! It's not all bad I guess. At least I won't be cold in my Halloween costume this year at the Renaissance festival. LOL. Seriously though, I am obsessed with my new booties and I'm wearing them with everything! Have you purchased your new pair of booties yet? What are you planning to wear them with? There are so many different ways to style a pair of booties but there's 3 in particular that I think are the cutest and best ways to show off your new fall footwear....

I think booties look so pretty when paired with a dress especially a shirt dress like the one pictured. Booties can take something simple like a casual dress and make it a bit more dressy. You can wear booties with almost any style of dress except formal. I haven't attempted to wear my booties with any type of formal attire but I know it wouldn't look good so I'll stick with the casual and day dresses with these cuties. For my example I chose the perfect pair of cognac booties for fall and styled them with a belted plaid shirt dress and a cute tan purse. This is the perfect outfit for a lunch date with friends. I've linked all the items in the picture HERE.

#2-Skinny Jeans
I love the way booties look with skinny jeans! In fact, this is my favorite way to wear mine. It's the perfect casual look for fall when paired with a cute top or sweater. Just remember that if the jeans are too long to roll them up to right above the top of the booties. You don't want to show off too much skin but you don't want your jeans bunching up at the ankles either. I chose the same cute booties and paired them with some skinny jeans and a really pretty sweater. This is the perfect fall activity outfit. I would wear this to the pumpkin patch or a fall festival. I've linked all these items HERE for you.

Wait what?! A romper in the fall? Well yes of course, especially if it's still 80 degrees where you live. HAHA I think a cute pair of booties makes any fall romper look a little more dressy. You can always throw on a pair of tights for when it gets a little chilly and the outfit still works. I love rompers but I have yet to buy one for fall...this needs to change asap. For my example I picked the same pair of booties and paired them with a beautiful floral long sleeve romper and a tan purse. This is a great outfit to wear out on a date with your sweetie. I've linked all these items HERE

Aren't these booties adorable? You could actually wear them for 3 different activities in one day if you change your outfit. How awesome is that?! Which of these styles could you see yourself wearing? I would wear all 3 myself! Is there a way that you'd style your fall booties differently? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be sure to snag yourself a pair of booties if you don't already own some and spread the love by sharing this post with all your friends. I hope you have an amazing weekend and happy shopping :)

Black And Grey Striped Soft Sweater

How's everyone doing this awesome hump day?? I'm so happy this week is almost over. I get to spend some much needed time with one of my besties on Friday and I can't wait. I have been doing a lot of thinking here lately and I have decided to drop my posts from 5 days a week to 3. I haven't mentioned it yet, but I'm currently in the process of starting an online store and it has been taking up a whole lot of my time. Add my full time job on top of that and I hardly have any time to breathe. While a blog should be nurtured and treated like a job, it shouldn't be your whole life. So, I'm going to lessen my load to allow myself more time to work on my business and spend time with family. I'm cutting the Sunday outfit post and the Thursday Top 10 of the week post. I'll still have the Monday must have post, the Wednesday outfit post, and the Friday freebie post. This may not be a permanent thing, but I'm going to give it a try. As always if there's something you'd like me to write about or you have any suggestions you can shoot me an email or just follow one of my social media accounts linked below and shoot me a message on there. Now that I got all that out of the way, I have found the cutest sweater that I want to share with you that's perfect for fall and is super comfy and casual. So, where did I get this cutie and where can you get one for yourself?

The Sweater
I actually found this sweater while I was on vacation in August at the Lufkin, Texas mall that I went to with my parents. There was a store in this mall that I had never heard of before called Maurices and I knew as soon as I walked by this was going to be a great store for me. Their style is very feminine and I loved all the retro items they had for sale, but when I saw this super cute sweater and felt how soft it was I knew this was the top for me. I love stripes and black and grey are the perfect neutral colors for fall so I knew I could make this work with my wardrobe. At less than $30 it was an awesome deal! The only downside was I couldn't wear it when I bought it and I knew it would be close to two months before I could put it on. Finally we had some slight fall weather here in Texas so I didn't hesitate to throw this on and wear it out shopping with my mom last weekend. So how did I end up styling this cutie and how can you change it up to match your style?

My Style
I wanted to stick with the casual theme but dress it up just a little so I paired it with my dark blue skinny jeans from Forever 21 that I've had for the longest time and my new black boots from Walmart that I purchased recently. I love getting jeans from Forever 21 because they are super affordable and they fit really well. These black boots have quickly become a favorite of mine and I wear them almost everywhere. They are very lightweight and really comfortable to wear even after a long day at the mall. LOL To change it up a bit you could wear a pair of black or grey Converse sneakers to create an even more casual look or you could dress it up a bit more and wear a pair of lace up flats. Either way, throw on a black bomber jacket for those cooler nights and you have the perfect fall outfit :)
