Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone!

As soon as I saw photos of mini pumpkins surfacing on Instagram I knew I wanted to pick up a few to decorate my condo with – they are just too cute! Especially the white ones, but unfortunately I couldn’t find them anywhere. I also had a little vase that I wanted to fill with  Halloween candy but I wanted to buy something that I wouldn’t be tempted to eat so I went with candy corn. Call me crazy but I’m just not a big fan of it, however, I have been guilty of snacking on them. (I have to add that the vase wasn’t full when I put the candy in it).

Here are a few photos of how I added some Fall decor to our place, which will be replaced with Holiday decor before I know it. I didn’t go as far as making them gold or glittery but definitely will get more creative next year!

Fall Trends: Plaid

A couple years ago I purchased a red plaid button down from Garage and was obsessed with it. Who knew that this pattern would become a highly coveted item! Unfortunately, either due to fit or my ever quick changing mind, I got rid of said shirt. Normally when I get rid of clothes (either selling them to friends, donating them or “recycling” them at H&M) I never miss anything but this shirt is a first. So I was on the hunt again for the perfect flannel and recently purchased the one from Garage pictured below.  From the runway, plaid has been spotted in some of the Fall 2013 shows like Versace, Moschino, Suno and Fausto Puglisi. They come in a variety of colours & plaids and are so versatile with styling. You can wear them buttoned up or unbuttoned with ANY kind of bottom (skirt, shorts, leggings, jeans) or even with a maxi dress as a kind of “jacket”. Another common way to style it is to rock it old school – tied around your waist. Yes, really. Seeing this look reminds me of grunge fashion & the 90’s. I had to order mine online because they were sold out in stores at the time so I’m anxiously awaiting its arrival! I can’t wait to wear it tied around my waist with a tank and a black maxi skirt.
