Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween, aren't these old vintage costumes really creepy?  These would have totally freaked me out as kid, actually they freak me out now.  It's interesting though how they came up with costumes back then before Party City took over. 

Doesn't my friend's house, in Florida, look amazing?  I wonder where she got the hearse?


My dear friend makes the best pumpkin martinis, so hopefully I will be relaxing and drinking one these tonight. 
Check out these Halloween Cocktails that would make any party a success. 
 Also, what a great way to use all those left over pumpkin seeds.

For Your Listening Pleasure

I have been binge watching season 6 of Sons of Anarchy and it has been so good, minus the unnecessary violence.  I think shows always get better once they have an end in sight.  However, the one thing I've noticed is the music this season.   You know when you hear a song that just moves you, especially when it goes perfectly with what is happening in the movie or TV show.  

Joshua James is amazing, yes he is easy on the eyes, but his song writing and voice are hypnotic.
Also, The White Buffalo, I don't think I have heard of him before Sons of Anarchy but I just purchased his album, Prepare For Black and Blue, and I have had it on constant rotation.  It's so good.  I definitely see more of his albums in my future. Maybe I need to get Spotify?

Short Boots

I think, no I know, Fall is my favorite season for style.  Lately, I have been loving all the options for short boots/ booties.  I am currently saving for a pair of Frye boots, which will hopefully be complete before Fall is over.  Number one is my favorite pair and someday they will be mine (insert evil laugh).   
I love the look of short boots with skinny jeans, super cute.
 Check out this post by Gorgeous and Beautiful for some great outfit inspiration.

Plus Size Coats

I love fall, I'm not such a big fan of winter.  It's so hard to find the perfect plus size coat that doesn't make you look too puffy.  I usually buy my coats from Lands End, they fit me right and they are made well.  However, this year I was thinking of trying somewhere new.  I'm tired of always wearing black coats so I was thinking of a caramel, orange or even olive color. I love the navy but it may be better for spring.

Kitchen Envy

Like everyone else I love a white kitchen but this kitchen designed by Sarah Richardson stopped me cold in my search for a new kitchen. I love all the use of the different materials, the tile floor and back splash, the brass handles and shiny cabinets and the stainless steel appliances.  The space feels warm but modern too including the dining and living areas.  Sarah has this ability to accessorize/style a space without making it look cluttered.

Currently Loving: Wool Hats



 All these woman look so cool in their wool hats.  I really want one.  I wonder where I could wear a wool hat and make it look so natural?
