Hi Everyone! I hope you all had a great week + are enjoying this beautiful Fall weekend — I know that I am! My sister + I were in NYC yesterday for BeautyCon [so fun – recap coming soon], and we have some pumpkin painting on our agenda this afternoon! I love Fall 🙂
Any-who, I’m happy to be back for week 5 of my #WIWTW series. I love that my readers are enjoying it as much as I am!
…Let’s bring it back to Monday — I hope you like! 🙂
I cannot believe I’ve managed to keep my #WIWTW series alive for a whole month! I’ve been loving every minute of it, and I’m so glad that my readers are enjoying it + finding themselves inspired too! You’re all the best! 🙂
This week was a busy one! You can definitely tell which days I had meetings/events to attend + which days I was able to be a bit more casual. I hope you enjoy! 🙂
I can’t believe it’s already week 3 of my #WIWTW series! I’m having so much fun with these posts – thank you all for the kind comments + wonderful feedback! 🙂
Alright, time to bring it back to the beginning of last week! It was an interesting one for sure – we had temps ranging from the 40’s to the 80’s… and there were a couple of mornings I was running late. Let me know if you can tell which ones, LOL. Hope you enjoy! –>
Fall is one of my favorite times of year…the colors, smells, food, and fashion- to die! Not so lucky for us on the East Coast, this Fall has been aggressively interrupted by Hurricane Sandy, and most recently this friendly little Nor’easter named Athena. While my state, and town are currently buried in fresh white snow, I wanted to bring it back and remember that regardless of what we may feel…winter is not here yet!
To help get back in the mind set, I picked out some of my absolute favorite things about Fall 2012 thus far- enjoy!
Those are just a few of my favorite things this season! What are you loving about Fall this year? Let me know 🙂
Okay, totally tacky post title, but you’ll see how it’s relevant 😉
I went to a wedding over the weekend, and had little time to put an outfit together. It was a day wedding, so I didn’t need to dress too formal. I was on a time crunch and a budget, see how it all came together below 🙂
I went shoe shopping for some fun new heels, but was completely out of luck! Nearly every store was stocked with wedges, or ginormous, chunky, color-blocked heels. Neither of which was the look I wanted to go with. I went back home and decided my leopard print heels would do just fine. (When I told my boyfriend I was just going to wear these shoes he said “Aren’t animal print shoes trashy?” HA! I told him no, a hint of animal print is completely in style, and he would be surprised by how well they’ll work with the outfit.) A told you so moment 😉
The dress had a high neck, so I was debating whether or not I should wear a necklace. Ultimately, it seemed too plain so I opted to wear these chunky warm toned & gold beads which I’ve had for a while- I swear, it’s a magic necklace, it compliments so many different outfits, and worked perfectly with the orange dress!
I needed a bracelet, or cocktail ring, and chose this brownish/gold ring that my roommate bought me for Christmas. It was the perfect finishing touch.
Of course you need a smaller clutch or bag, so I opted to carry my DKNY leather bag which I ‘m still in love with. (I told you I’d get some good use out of it- no buyers remorse ;))
I wanted to do something different with my nails. As you know I picked up the rest of the Gelish Candyland Collection a couple of weeks ago, so thought it’d be the perfect time to try out ‘Don’t Be Such a Sourpuss’. At first I hated it, it looked too green, but in natural light it is a really pretty yellow. I’ve actually been getting a lot of compliments on it. Who would have thought? 🙂
My toes I painted with the fabulous Sally Hansen Insta-Dri orange polish that Ashely sent to me in the secret blogger swap. I love it! I can’t wait to use it on my fingernails as well.
And here you have the final product!
I was very happy with how well everything came together (and the fact that I didn’t spend any money). It pays to buy a couple of extra dresses you love if you randomly find them on sale!
Have you attended any weddings lately? What did you wear?
