all hallows eve


Happy Halloween, goblins and ghouls! Hope you have a spooky and safe Friday night! 
To incite fear in your souls, I've rounded up a few of my favorite costumes in recent years. 

Spook ya later!





  





And one more for good time's sake:

out of the woods







This season I have decided that there is nothing like a good fuzzy sweater to fight the cold! It may make people want to pet you (?), but it's the perfect companion on any cool day. And as such, this sweater has been on major repeat the last week. For this office ready look, I paired it with a pair of culottes that I picked up earlier this year in San Francisco and have (apparently) yet to feature in an outfit post! This look was comfortable and chic and easy--three things that work so well for my life.

In other things, is anyone else having trouble getting "Out of the Woods" out of their heads?!

pretty in pleats











Another fall item I've been looking for: a pleated skirt. Pleats can be tricky as I feel they can quickly go juvenile. So I was looking for something basic but fashion forward. Enter this black and white pleated midi skirt. #swoon It's so lovely, and even more lovely feeling to wear. And again, the best part: less than $20! I love when a great piece is also a great price--I have a feeling this skirt will be making many many appearances on the blog come spring. I even made my supervisor nervous with this looks-fancier-than-it-is outfit--he thought I might have been going on a secret job interview! So there you go folks--to keep your boss on their toes, dress up in lady-like clothes on a random weekday. And feel like a million bucks doing it.
