Happy Tuesday, fashionistas!...It's been a whirlwind few weeks, so apologies for my lack of posting. I've been loving my new gig at Footwear Plus and Earnshaw's magazines, and it's been great to be in the city. But New York, especially with a commute from Connecticut, is a bit tiring. My sweet pup also had surgery last week (everything went well and we took him home from the hospital yesterday). So needless to say it's been a struggle to get clothes on my body every day, let alone blog about them. But don't worry, it hasn't been all work and no play for this dull girl. This past weekend we celebrated my bestie and roomie's birthday with a night out, and I never shared photos from Halloween a few weeks back (snaps below). Otherwise, there have been a lot of late nights and early mornings, and I've found myself lacking the energy to put together creative outfits. Do you have any advice/tricks to look stylish in less time? Signed, in a rut.

Happy Halloweekend, fashionistas! It's been a busy October for me, and as it turns out, the end of a chapter. I'm starting a new job on Monday in New York City that will shake up my current routine, so I've been admittedly a bit preoccupied with the transition. While I am SO excited for this new venture (details to come), I'm sad to leave the support I've had in this role for the past several years. Some of my coworkers are also people that I call my dearest friends. But in this case, change is a great thing, and I can't wait to get to it!
In some un-preoccupied time (new word?), I have been enjoying what is arguably my favorite month of the year. Sean and I carved pumpkins, explored new neighborhoods, and I went to my first pro hockey game. My share of seasonal beers and ciders have been consumed. Best yet, tomorrow is my favorite holiday! (I'm sharing two of my most-recent, and most-loved, costumes here). And the soundtrack is just as important, so tune into my Spotify "Halloweekend" playlist and get in the mood!

Happy Monday, fashionistas! I hope you enjoyed this blustery fall weekend as much as I did. The cold front is a reminder that Halloween is less than two week away. Have you planned your costume yet? Sean and I are doing a couple's costume, but, as always, I'm keeping the details quiet until Halloween. If you aren't as crazy as me, you may not have even thought about what you'll be: Hence, my annual DIY last-minute costume post. The only thing worse than an expensive store-bought look is a lame pair of cat ears, or (gasp!) nothing at all. These ideas can be put together with clothes you already have in your closet, plus a few accessories if you want to up the ante. Timeless or timely, check out these Instagram-worthy looks that will win Halloween.
Any Grecian dress can serve as the base for this Helen of Troy costume. Pair with gold bangles, and slip on braided sandals. A gauzy scarf makes a good headpiece and adds warmth. The final accessory? An armor-clad Paris with a bow and arrow.
Have a white collared shirt and long sleeved black LBD in your closet? Then you've got all it takes to look like an Adams daughter. Layer the two and add pigtail braids and black tights. Extra points for pale makeup and a scowl.
Claire from Jurassic World was definitely one of this year's most badass female characters. A white pencil skirt and blouse layered over a tank is all it takes. (Messy it up for the full effect.) One caveat: No taking off your heels—all. night. long. If Claire can run from the Velociraptors in hers, then you can get from your apartment to the party and back.
