3 Easy and Fun Halloween Costumes

Today I am linking-up with Cathleen, Rachel, and Cristina for their Witches, Ghouls, and Goblins #galpalholiday link up! Okay. I am not the biggest fan of Halloween because I hate scary things, but I absolutely love dressing up. I wish we lived in a world where more costumes were worn. I came up with 3 easy and different Halloween costumes that can be recreated pretty last minute. So even if you don't know what you're wearing on Saturday, you can come up with something fun!

Marty McFly

Marty McFly: Vest | Shirt (similar) | Jeans (similar) | Shoes | Jacket (similar)

It's 2015, and last week was Back to the Future Day! Marty McFly is the perfect costume for this year even though we still don't have hoverboards. Just make sure you don't going changing the past too much while you're out. 


Holly Golightly

Holly Golightly | Shirt | Mask (DIY) | Earrings

Okay. I'm all for Holly Golightly costumes, but especially her sleepwear. I mean, wearing an oversized button down (with compression shorts) and being able to look like I just woke up? Perfect. Replace her ear plugs with fun earrings, and you can even make her mask! Throw you hair into her half up/half down messy look and drink milk out of a martini glass. 


Wednesday Addams

Wednesday Addams | Dress (similar) | Tights | Shoes | Necklace (similar)

The Addams Family (And Adams Family Values) is one of my favorite movies, and I adore Wednesday. For this costume, all you need is a black dress, white collar, black tights, black flats, two braids, and a RBF. You can either find a black dress already with a white collar, and you can make your own Peter Pan collar and wear any black dress you already have. What would be super cute is if you could find someone to be Pugsley. The blk water is a funny take on her poison battle she drinks out of sometimes.

5 Fall Essentials

Call me basic but... I love fall so much. It's my favorite season because it is full of color with the leaves changing yet the grass is still alive, and Friday nights in fall? Seriously the best, y'all. It's finally starting to feel like fall in Georgia, but by that I mean it's no longer 80 degrees at four in the afternoon when it was 40 in the morning. Since the weather is finally swinging in my preferred way, I thought I would share with y'all my fall essentials.
Sperry Duck Boots | Okay, I actually have Bean Boots, but if you haven't already ordered those, you're a little out of luck because they'll probably arrive in spring. I ordered mine in March, so you need to order those during the offseason. But people love Sperry's version as well! I wear my Bean Boots with jeans and leggings mostly. I know some people wear them with dresses, but that makes me legs look even shorter than they already are. You ca check out LL Bean's pinterest for inspiration, and once I start having more free time, I'll put together some outfits! 

J.Crew's Camp Socks | I've had these for a year now, and I can't imagine living without them. I wear them with my Bean Boots mostly now, but I'll wear them with booties or just around the house. J.Crew didn't make any of the classic solid ones this season, so you have to buy those at the Factory store. But J.Crew did make fun patterned ones.

Striped Turtleneck | Confession: I usually hate turtlenecks. The fabric is way too close to my neck, but I love this one from J.Crew Factory. It's oversized so the neck doesn't make you feel like you're choking. It's also incredibly warm for being a knit shirt, which means it's perfect for when you can't wear a tshirt or a sweater. 

Sam & Libby Leopard Bow Flats | Or Leopard flats in general... But give me all the Sam & Libby bow flats. The women in my family have problem because together we have seven pairs, I think. These are the best shoes ever, and I will recommended them until I am blue in the face. 

Excursion Vest | Probably the most basic thing ever on here, but I cannot live without vests. Once it hits fall, I have a hard time not wearing mine every day. J.Crew Factory obviously have some great ones, but I love Old Navy's as well. J.Crew's are more structured than Old Navy's, but I love them both, and I recommend Old Navy's if you're not quite on the vest bandwagon yet.

Homecoming 2015 Recap

I am really late on this... But my computer wouldn't respond to my SD card, so it took a while to get the photos from Homecoming uploaded. Finally I am bringing you my homecoming recap! I shared some photos from the night on my spirit week post, but I had to share more. 









I wore a Lilly Pulitzer dress with Tory Burch wedges, and I completed the quadfecta of wearing Lilly to all four of my homecoming dances. I love, love the Colette dress. It is so comfortable, and I really want it in the print version. As for the dance itself, it was super lame as usual, but I had lots of fun with my best friends, and it was the perfect way to celebrate my last homecoming dance.

September Favorites

It's October. #whatwhat I am so excited that is October because it is my favorite month. Ever. I love fall, Halloween, and FALL CLOTHING! September, however, was a such an amazing month filled with some craziness and amazing moments. I am one step closer to graduating from high school, and I am so excited because I am already done with senior year. #8MoreMonths... 




UGA Game | I spent the first weekend of September with my best friend, Jordan, at Georgia. I visited UGA, but mainly I went to see Jordan and go to the football game. She sneaked me into student section in the end zone, which was really fun since I go to see UGA score up close.


College | I got into college, y'all! I got into Alabama earlier this month, and I finished all my applications for three other schools. It's a huge weight lifted off my shoulders, and I am thrilled that I can now focus on my energy on school. 


"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest"/The High Museum | The Alliance Theater in Atlanta put on "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," and it was incredible. The run is over, but I recommend seeing anything at the Alliance Theater if you live in Atlanta. I want to go see "Disgraced," which is about the relationship with Muslims in America.

While in Atlanta, my AP Lit class got stuck in Atlanta... Thankfully the Alliance Theater was so amazing and got us into the Museum. I absolutely love the High. I used to spend a lot of time there as a kid. My great-grandfather has a painting there of my grandmother, and I love looking at it because it makes me feel connected to my family. Also Howard Finster's exhibit has always been my favorite thing ever. As a kid, I loved the colors and words, but now I love meaning.

Some time next week, I will post a full Homecoming recap!
