Fashion: Fall Outfit on Repeat

DETAILS | Jeans: similar, similar / Sweater / Booties / Bag: similar, similar / Necklace

Happy Halloween! Even though today is Halloween, we sadly aren't dressing up. We will be going over to my boyfriend's brother's house to see his nieces and nephews all dressed up, which should be really fun! There's also a chance of snow today, which is terrifying on many levels for me ;)

Since the cold has really set in here, this look has been on repeat for me. Denim (preferably colored), a warm sweater, and booties or boots. This bag comes with me wherever I go (as you've probably noted over the past year of fashion posts...ha!) My new obsession though?! This initial necklace from Bip & Bop, a sweet etsy shop that gave each of the attendees at Bloom a personalized necklace. I've worn mine every day since the workshop. It's hard to see from the picture, but I assure you it's dainty, simple and oh-so-pretty in gold. Love it!

What are your plans for Halloween? Other than seeing McCann's nieces and nephews, we are just laying low. Tomorrow is my 24th birthday (seriously, I don't understand how I am 24 already!) We will be doing something fun during the day and then going to dinner and dessert with friends. Should be a fun weekend.

Have a safe Halloween, filled with lots of sugar and sweets :)

Home Suite Home: Master Bedroom

This week in our Home Suite Home series, we are talking about the design of Lauren's Master Bedroom. Here's the floor plan of the room, so you can get an idea.

 Right now, the bed is on the wall with the smaller window, and it butts up against the window, so only one person has a walkway to their side of the bed. I wanted to try to give both people access to their side of the bed, so I'm proposing to put the bed up against the sliding door that they do not use anyways. The curtains will cover this slider and act as a headboard of sorts. Lauren is going to try this configuration and let us all know how it works out :) Here's what I'm thinking:

Here is the design plan for the room. A few simple changes will really bring the room to a new level with some fresh zest. Help Lauren choose her bedding below!

Option ONE:


SOURCESBedding 1white shamsaccent pillow  Bedding 2: printed shams, I Love You pillows / Curtains / Mirror / Lamp

Which one are you leaning towards? Simple, fluffy white with some fun pillows or a elegant patterned duvet with white shams and an accent pillow? Let us know in the comments!

DIY Gold Sequin Pumpkins

This month has been so busy, we haven't had a chance to carve our pumpkins! When I was out yesterday doing some errands, I found a mini pumpkin and some gold sequins I thought would be fun to adorn the pumpkin with. I headed home to create a little DIY ombre glitter pumpkin.

Materials: pumpkin, craft glue (mixed with a little water to spread easier), two sizes of gold sequins.

Step 1: spread your glue and water concoction on the bottom half of the pumpkin.

Step 2: put the larger sequins on the glue. 

Step 3: Add more glue to the next half of the pumpkin and stick your smaller sequins on that portion of the glue.

Viola! There' my only little decorated pumpkin for the year. Have you carved pumpkins yet? I can't believe Halloween is on Friday. I also can't believe there's a chance of snow on Halloween here. Craziness. I'm so not ready for that ;)

Happy Wednesday!

Apartment Update: New Addition to the Bookshelf

This here is my favorite bookshelf in all the land. It's in my living / dining room and it holds books, frames, accessories and a plant. I recently got new bookends, something I desperately needs to better hold up my books, from Brooklyn Thread. They're not just any old bookend, though. These agate stone bookends are intricate, beautiful, and provide texture for the top shelf. I think they add so much interest to my bookshelf! Here are some more peeks:

Brooklyn Thread also sent me this amazing Agate Stone Candle Holder. I put it here on my dress in my bedroom because it is the exact accent color of my room-- berry! I love how it glistens when I light the candle inside the stone. It's just the coolest effect!

I think these pretty gem stone pieces go so well with the flow of the rest of my home. Aren't they lovely?!

Hope you're enjoying your week so far! Happy Tuesday
