Happy Halloween!!

Well, since today is Halloween, I thought I'd share with you a few of my costumes over the years. Get prepared to see some skin, because afterall "In Girl World, Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it." Ahh, I love a good Means Girls quote!!

Fall To-Do List

I love Fall; it's my favorite season. The weather cools down, blazers & boots become outfit staples, the AC can be turned off (hello, cheaper electric bill!). Every year, there a few things I always say I'm going to do/experience, but they never happen. This year, I've created a list of things to do this fall. Hopefully, I'll actually do at least onethis year:

Pumpkin Patch: Can you beleive that I've NEVER been to a pumpkin patch before?! I know, it's crazy. I'm not sure what I'd do with an actually pumpkin, but it'd be nice to go pick one out myself.

Apple-Picking: I know, I know... I've never done this either. It just seems like the perfect fall activity.

Vineyard: Obviosuly, you all know that I LOVE wine. I've only ever been to a vineyard in the spring. I'd love to visit one in the Fall.

 Football Game: Well, at least tailgate. I haven't been to a football game or tailgating in about two years. I seriously need this in my life ASAP! Plus, I miss Blacksburg.

Shopping: This one is a given. If I'm going to do all these things, I'm obvs going to need all new clothes for the aforementioned. Yes, I have a problem...

I just want to point out, I'm only using this pic, Idk what any of these stores are! LOL.

What activites are you most looking forward to doing this seaon?!

Geek-chic Glasses

Derek Cardigan 7004 Brown Tortoiseshell, $97
About a week ago, I came across a commercial from this company called Coastal. The commercial boasted about the great quality glasses they have at affordable prices. It also offered your first pair free. Naturally I was a little skeptical. Being someone who needs perscription eyewear, I know how expensive it can be. There was no way this company was giving away a fair for free.

A few days later, I sae a blog post about the company. The fashion blogger had actually taken Coastal up on the first pair free offer. She said it was legit. That same night, I searched the website & found a really cute pair of glasses. The offer was correct, I got my first pair free (only had to pay for tax & shipping/handling). I placed my order on Friday night & had a new pair of glasses Wednesday.

I am a bug fan of my new specs. Because I was getting such a good deal, I decided to go for an oversized geek-chic look. What do you think of my glasses?! Geek-chic?!

Ignore the bad quality of this pic, I had no intention of actually sharing it!
**** This is not a sponsored post & I highly reccommend checking out Coastal!****

Work Outfits from the Back Room

Hello readers,

I know I've mentioned before that for work, I have to wear black, white and gray. I decided I'd show you a few outfits I've worn to work. Over the few months I've been with this company, I've aquired a closet full of these boring lovely colors. I try to be as fashionable as possible, butI'm finding that a lot of cute options just simply don't exist in these colors. If you have any suggestions of store that carry ruffley, flowy, extra feminie basics, please let me know!

Cardi: Forever 21
Shirt: American Eagle
Pants: Target
Boots: Bamboo
Necklace: Charlotte Russe
Watch: Michael Kors
Bracelet: H&M
Dress, Scarf, Boots: Target
Watch: Micahel Kors
(Obvs I wore this before Fall kicked in)
Blouse, Pants, Bootd: Target
Watch: Micahel Kors
(Love the little faux leather stripe on these pants!)
As I'm typing these outfit details, I am noticing I get a lot of my work clothes from Target. Hmm, I guess that's okay. I'm definitely saving money by not having to buy stuffy office clothes!
How do you spice up a black/white/gray combo?! Any suggestions?!
****Sorry for these mirror pictures, but aisde from living alone, I generally cover my store alone too. I really need to invest in a tripod!

Hello readers!

There's so many amzing trends this season that I'm dying to try. I've compiled a list of the pieces I'm coveting & want in my closet.

Oxblood & Leather: These pants combine two of this season's trends- oxblood & leather. These wine colored faux leather pants can be found at H&M. Hello affordability! I've seen a few bloggers rocking these & they sem to fit very well. I can't wait to try these!
H&M, $34.95
Peplum: This is one trend I haven't tried yet. This particular top would be a perfect addition to my warbdrobe. For work, I'm required to wear nuetrals- black, white, gray- making this blouse a given. It's also sold at H&M.

H&M, $19.95
STUDDED LOAFERS: I've never been too keen on loafers, but there's something about them being adorned in studs that makes me crave them. Plus, who doesn't need a pair of black flats?! I saw this pair at I've orderd a few pair of shoes from the site before, so I feel confident in purchasing this pair of studded beauties.
POSH Allure, Zoo Shoo, $44.90
Other things I'm on the search for: 
Gold-plated bracelets because I want to have an arm party.
A large black handbag with shoulder straps & gold hardware.
