Half the fun of October is dreaming up halloween ideas, am I right? With just 2 weeks to go, here are 5 fun costumes to give a try!


Holly Golightly:

The cutest satin sleep mask set from Etsy with this simple white tux shirt and then bam, you’re Holly Golightly.



Troop Beverly Hills:

One of my  MOST favorite childhood movies. Dress up in some khaki and green and don’t forget the Troop Beverly Hills pins. I want to do this one just so I can pass out these stickers.



Disco Roller Skaters:

You KNOW that you’ve wanted an excuse to buy a pair of candy colored roller skates. Pair with sequins or some pretty sweet track shorts.



Simply Irresistible Music Video:

All you need is a tight black dress, a white guitar, and the perfect red lipstick! Maybe change your ring tone for the night, too?



80’s Aerobics:

Fun fact, when I was a kid my mom was an aerobics teacher. I’ll never forget her practicing and mixing dance tapes in our family room. And her geer!! Check out this outfit! Don’t forget the leg warmers.



Have any other ideas? Please share!

Halloween is one of my most favorite holidays. The weather in October is generally really great here in Charleston and I love seeing all of the houses dressed with spider webs. The best part is seeing my kids faces light up over costume discussions. It’s a topic they pretty much never tire of. We still haven’t made any final decisions over, but here are some really great ideas courtesy of Amazon Prime!

Lilly’s year of being a gumball machine was my favorite of her’s yet. It was the same year that Fletcher was an ice cream sandwich and it was preeeeeettty much the cutest.

Apparently my life has been so busy that I’ve forgotten to even share a life lately post since July. I mean, I’m not really that busy. It’s weird because these posts are some of my most favorite to put together, I just forget how fast time goes I guess… Anyway, here’s a bunch of camera roll photos since late July!


I had so much fun at the Henry’s Hard Sparkling yoga event at the Dewberry.



It was such a pretty day and the doors were thrown open. When the really hard yoga started I stepped out to take some pics, ha!



Similar pair of my working out leggings here.



Metallics for fall – obsessed with these heels. So comfortable, I would love them in black, too. Also, I’m wearing this floral dress and this cylinder bag :)



Little crystal bee earrings by my friend Deirdre!



We spent a week in Asheville at the Grove Park with my whole side of the family (about 25 of us). It was such a special week all together! Below, I’m wearing this dress. I LOVE the colors, but it comes in grey as well.



The kids had so much fun together. Pretty funny that these girls all have the same Gap swimsuit!



In my favorite dress at the Grove Park ;)



Pretty Charleston…



At a little party at our house – some of my most favorite people in the world right here.



Card shopping at Mac N Murphy – where the selection is ALWAYS amazing.



Trying out the Hello Fresh meal kit! So fun.



Had a girls river trip with Lilly – she and Farris had so much fun on the boat, jumping off the dock, and just goofing off.



Oh, here we are at the Pitt St bridge for the eclipse that happened in August. What a neat experience!



I got these pink satin mules on sale, and you still can too :)



At the Habitat for Humanity fundraiser here in Charleston. Dress is from Tuckernuck.



When Irma came through Charleston. Unbelievable – but overall our city was so lucky.



I’ve been logging a lot of hours at the soccer field. Both the kids are playing this year and are loving it.



Just blending in at Gray’s house. Isn’t this portrait gallery wall cool?



Neighborhood scene…



With dear friends celebrating that pretty gal in the middle’s birthday.



Mountain trip near Asheville about 2 weeks ago. It was still quite warm but we had a great time. I brought our new game Utter Nonsense and you guys… it was SO much fun. If you like Cards Against Humanity then you’ll love this one.



And my most favorite pair of shoes this season – these Trademark mules!



Happy Thursday!

How cool is that bookshelf pendant light? And the bird drum chandelier would be so fun basically anywhere and A LOT less than the one that was on Anthropologie that one time…
