White + Wine

These Boots. My new favorite thing ever!! Get ready to see a whole lot of them, because I swear I haven't taken them off since they arrived on my doorstep! I wore this to a "Halloween Fest" over the weekend. Our night was filled with fire dancers, acrobats, magicians, a walk through the 'haunted cemetery', yummy caramel apples, hot apple cider and lots and lots of jack-o-lanterns. This cozy oversized sweater I thrifted was the perfect thing to keep me warm the whole time! I seriously love Halloween!! I don't know if you know this about me but I'm kind of obsessed with all things creepy. I LOVE horror movies and am constantly dragging my poor Hubby to them. I love reading about ghost stories and weird unexplained occurrences... it's just so interesting to me! So Halloween has always been a favorite time of year :) Still not sure what we're doing this weekend but we'll definitely be dressing up! Do any of you have fun plans?! We went to a big party Saturday night so if our Halloween night ends up being more low-key I won't mind :)

Two Words. Blanket. Scarf.

You guys. Two more words.. Zara. Dupe. This is NOT the amazing and super popular Zara blanket scarf. That's right....it's Target!!! Oh, and it's only $16. Seriously. You probably definitely need one!! I've worn the crap out of mine since I bought it last week. It's just too perfect, I can't get over it! And it's also the softest thing ever. Even my Hubby is in love with how soft it is. So, yeah, go get yourself one!! And don't be too upset if I wear mine every post from now on...(half kidding). Have a happy hump day peeps! ♥

Gatsby Inspired

I'm so excited to share these photos with you! I'm in love with how they turned out! A couple weekends back I got to join in a super fun Gatsby style shoot at the gorgeous Chantilly mansion. If you follow me on instagram I posted a couple sneak peeks, but I couldn't wait to share the rest!! So here they are. There were quite a few photographers there but these are all from Meghann Larson, who was super fast getting photos back to me! I love her style and can't wait to work with her more in the future. After playing Gatsby in this stunning beaded gown I'm thinking I NEED a full beaded dress... right?!

Floppy Hats & Combats

Hey! How was your weekend?! Mine was SO good. I didn't want it to be over! Saturday Ethan and I had a little couple photoshoot that I seriously can't wait to share!! Then we spent the night in Park City with Jody for her birthday! Her Hubby planned the whole thing as a surprise, it was so cute :) We had so much fun! Our hotel even had a hot tub on the deck!! And heated floors in the bathroom...which are now a definite must when we get a house, haha. Sunday morning we had breakfast and did a little shopping at the outlets then headed our seperate ways. It was so fun being there to celebrate my bestie's birthday with her! I also had yesterday off for Columbus Day (perks of working at a bank) so it was a nice long weekend for me. As if that wasn't enough goodness, my sister-in-law gave us free box seat tickets to the Jazz game last night that she couldn't use. I'm not a huge basketball fan, or really a sports fan in general.. but I couldn't pass up the chance to sit in the "Executive's club" and be served free food! It was super fancy, they even had a dress code! We had a blast dressing up and pretending ;) So that was my weekend, hope your week is off to a great start!

Beanie Weather

So.. I meant to have this post up yesterday but I ended up staying home sick and sleeping literally ALL. DAY. I seriously woke up at 5:30 PM when my Hubby called on his way home from work. It was so nice though. I just needed a day to rest and recovery. I've been going non-stop lately and with my Mom in town we've been doing something every night this week. So life's been a little crazy lately but a lot of fun! And I have some more exciting shoots this weekend! I've been doing a bit more modeling lately and I love it. Plus this weekend Ethan and I are getting some Fall photos together with one of my favorite photographers while all the leaves are bright and pretty! I'm SO excited!! I'm also pretty excited that it's beanie weather - if you haven't noticed. I picked out this one while my cute Hubby browsed for a new skateboard. It felt kind of like high school. Haha!
P.S. You might recognize this bustier top from my Katy Perry costume.. it was so cute I had to wear it once before dying it pink and adding the "cotton candy" ;)

Hey! Happy Monday! How was everyone's weekend? Mine was kind of a blur of photoshoots, puppy loves, and family time. Super fast but really really good. My Mom is back in town for the week and I just want to spend every minute with her while she's here! The whole family gathered at my Aunt's last night for dinner and it felt so good just to have everyone together again for a minute. Even if I had to eat and mingle in my undead makeup... haha! I'm also kind of obsessed with my sister's new puppy, he's a little fluffball of energy and kisses! I'm fur-baby hungry, like.. BAD. Someone get me a puppy! Oh, and I noticed while editing these pics that it looks like I have a little tummy.. I promise I'm not prego. I think it's the fact that I tried to make this night-shirt into a top. It's really more of a swingy shawl-type thing that buttons only at the top, so, lots of extra fabric. I had to find a way to wear it though! I saved it from my Grandma's things and it's just so delicate and pretty, I'm in love. Plus it went to perfectly with this cute pale pink turban Stevi sent me! Perfect for a laid back day of adventuring.
