October Favorites

I’m a little sad October is already over, but I’m excited to start planning for the holiday season. The end of October caught up with me so I didn’t have time to film a video for my channel, but I still wanted to share my monthly favorites so we can chat about all the great things that happened in October.

October Fashion Favorites

Halogen x Atlantic-Pacific

Even though I didn’t buy anything from the collection (yet), I was really excited to see what Atlantic-Pacific was bringing to Nordstrom. The bow top I wanted sold out almost instantly, why do things always launch during work hours? Don’t people work?! I thought about buying these shoes for holiday, but I knew I was just feeling the temptation of the launch excitement and held back. They’re still sitting in my cart so we will see if they end up coming home with me. Did you get anything from the collection?

Wubby

I’ve worn this after work on the daily. I’m sure you’ve seen it on stories if you follow me on Instagram. It’s now on sale in select sizes and you can shop a few dupes for it in the widget below. It says to size down, but I actually sized up to have it oversized and cozy.

Lace Cami

I have this in black and pink and I’ve worn them a lot throughout the month! They’re very versatile to layer under itchy sweaters or to have the lace detail peek out. I sized up to a medium.

October Beauty Favorites

I actually have no new October beauty favorites to share, but stay tuned for next month because I found a few skin care products towards the end of the month that will likely be featured. I’m still loving the beauty items mentioned in my September favorites, so check that out if you missed it!

October Lifestyle Favorites

Headspace App

After opening up about my anxiety on Instagram stories a lot of you recommended downloading the Headspace app. I noticed almost instant results. Although I don’t use it daily like recommended, I do try to open it during times of increased anxiety and the disconnect from whatever is stressing me out helps. It’s a self-guided meditation app that you can do in 3-5 minutes/day.

Youtube

Random, I know. But my Youtube channel is a favorite this month. I have really enjoyed creating over there and getting to know a new audience. I’m blown away by your positive feedback and it makes me so happy to inspire your style on my channel.

Staycation at Hotel Avalon

Tim and I had a staycation at Hotel Avalon for our 2 year wedding anniversary. It was fun to “get away” even though it was only 20 miles from the house (that’s an hour drive in Atlanta.. lol). We had a delicious meal at South City Kitchen and it was so convenient to stay at Avalon because we never had to leave.

Thank you so much for reading!

  • Old Navy is having 40% off so you can get my favorite jeggings for $21! These just slide on, no buttons required and I’ve had this pair for years🙌🏼 I recommend sizing down for a sculpted fit, my true size tends to stretch out on me. My duster is sold out but I’m keeping my eyes out for a restock on Black Friday. I should have an @oldnavy try on haul on my channel sometime tomorrow 💕I’m finishing up my 2018 gift guides and I’m sending them all out to my newsletter fam tomorrow at 6pm. Click the link in my bio to sign up and see what’s on my wishlist this year.

  • Surprisingly for a cold rainy Monday I had really good day. I wore a cozy poncho to work, left 2 hours early, and got a lot done between both of my jobs thanks to a lot of cancels. The elderly don’t mess around in the rain and I don’t blame them! Now that I’m reading this I realize I need to have happy moments outside of work 😂 What was a highlight of your Monday?

I wasn’t kidding about these boots I mentioned in my last post, either. Seriously in love! This look is from my video on styling Spank leather leggings. I shared 10 outfits and trust me, if I can make it work for my girly style you can, too! My tunic is on sale for $25 and comes in 10 colors. I own a few because they’re a perfect layering piece and are extra long for leggings. I’m wearing a small.

  • I am so excited these boots have finally restocked in most sizes! I know it’s weird, but these boots are so soft they make your legs feel like you just shaved and laid underneath clean sheets 😂 I try to keep everything here affordable but every now and then I share items worth the splurge. This look is from my Thanksgiving look book if you’re still looking for ideas on what to wear this Thanksgiving 💕 The boots run TTS.
