October is officially over everyone & so is FROCKTOBER. This experience has been fun & I certainly will be participating again next year! I have found a new enjoyment in fashion, & how I present myself to the world via clothing. Let’s review the final week:
Friday Night: 10/27/2017
If you have not ready my From my Hart: Creating the Costumes, please do! My boyfriend & I attended my friends annual Halloween costume & with the help of all of you over the summer- we decided on Popeye & Olive Oyl as our first ever couples costume!
The costumes cost around $30 to make and was a really fun experience for both of us… no really, he got into it! I cannot wait to see what ideas I/we come up with for next Halloween! Who knows, we may have some Christmas DIY Costumes to feature on here 😉
I woke up so excited to do nothing! I grabbed my “house” leggins, and my new mandala tee from LOL Vintage! According to google, the mandala is “a geometric figure representing the universe in Hindu and Buddhist symbolism; a symbol in a dream, representing the dreamer’s search for completeness and self-unity.” I love intricate designs, & after reading this on the meaning… I think I will be purchasing a lot more mandala items.
Saturday Night: 10/28/2017
It was wedding night for one of my sweet sisters! After much debate, I ended up wearing this super comfortable green dress. You can see me here with another one of my sisters, bridesmaid & mama-to-be Ashley! This dress is from The Limited. I wish nothing more than a lifetime of happiness to the new Mr. & Mrs. Sullivan!
Alas, I spent most of the day in my room fighting off a sick headache. You can bet your bottom dollar I was pumping peppermint essential oil to help fight it off, & whew did that help! So, my outfit reflects my internal struggles haha. I’m wearing, what my boyfriend calls a “groutfit;” an all grey outfit… classy. My sweatpants are joggers from UnderArmour, & are the kind with a cuff at the ankles & follow the shape of the leg. I decided to throw on my grey zip-up from Walmart. Of course, I cheered up for some cuddles with my new cousin Piper.
Boom… back in action! It was blustery cold all day. I threw on my Ugg ankle boots in chestnut (I should probably get new ones, as I’ve had these for 7+ years- whew) for extra warmth with my Target jeans. With these I paired my new white sweater from Target, it is apart of the A New Day collection & y’all it is cashmere cozy! My new scarf is courtesy of my dear friend Liz; the only thing the tag says is 20% cashmere, 80% cotton- aka cozy/fashionable/wonderful!
Can you tell I feel fabulous?! My watch is from Michele & my purse is still Kate Spade!
The last official day of #FROCKTOBER & Halloween! Our office Halloween party was not going to be until the following day, so I just went for an all black outfit. My “house leggins” made an appearance out of the home, paired with my converse, my black v-neck from Target and my new cardigan from Target. I love the think lines on this cardigan, it really pops, and I love how they stop at my shoulders. Also, the front of the cardigan swoops ever so subtly down, instead of being a straight vertical line, which is super flattering and chic!
I have had these spider earrings since middle school, so I have no idea where I got them. But how perfect for Halloween?! It was the perfect touch to a super casual and comfortable outfit.
Final FROCKTOBER Thoughts:
I will say, I enjoyed this much more than I anticipated. It’s hard to not compare yourself to others whom you deem more fashionable, but this really allowed me to take pride in myself in a new way! Not posting my outfits for the remainder of this week has been very odd! However, I will say, I am continuously looking for more clothes to add to my closet, and do plan on posting outfits more for y’all.
Thank you for following along, & have no fear, my blogging will not stop. I’ve got so many wonderful posts ready to go, and as we dive into the holiday season, things are gonna get good.
