Pumpkin everything

There is just something special about this time of the year… When the weather finally starts to change and you can start wearing fall clothes (!!), when the leaves are changing color, corn mazes, apple picking, hay rides, and pumpkin everything!
Pumpkins, in my opinion, have an inherent relation to Halloween, you cannot have one without the other. I am so excited that it is finally the time of year when apple cider is available everywhere and you don’t have to hide your adoration for everything pumpkin flavored. I am currently on the hunt for a pumpkin bagel – lightly toasted with cream cheese? Yes, please.
Here is a small compilation of pumpkin and Halloween related things that I found on Pinterest (original links included) that I am so looking forward to enjoying this season.


one I love this butternut squash skull, it would make such an awesomely creepy decoration hanging by the front door to welcome guests, or maybe in a big bowl filled with small gourds and brightly colored apples
two Pumpkin pie french toast, need I say more?
three Pumpkin hot (white) chocolate. I can only imagine what this might taste like – pair this with a night in watching Are You Afraid of the Dark and you can’t go wrong
four I need to make this.

What are some of your Halloween favorites?

Vintage

I love looking through the vintage stuff on etsy, trying to envision where I might put this, or where I might wear that.
I think this dress is so beautiful.

The cut and color of the dress are so feminine, and the bow adds the perfect accent.
I also found this dress, which I don’t particularly love, but it is so similar to a style that American Eagle has.

I absolutely love this dress! It is an updated vintage style – it is a bodycon dress with a bead and sequin chiffon overlay. So cute for work and for the holidays!

H&M and Lana Del Rey

Anyone that knows me knows that I have the smallest infatuation with Lana Del Rey – classic styles, big hair, and great music, what isn’t to love?
So when I heard that she was working with one of my favorite stores on a campaign, suffice it to say, I was looking forward to its release.
I had purchased a few pieces and thought what was displayed in the store was the whole line, until I received an email at the end of October with this picture enclosed:

A few hours after I checked the email I headed to my local H&M in search of it. I scoured the store and much to my dismay it was not there. After looking for about two weeks I had just about given up my search, and happened to stumble upon it this past Saturday and felt like I hit the lotto as there was only one left in my size!
I have been wearing this coat every day since and I love the versatility it offers.

I spent the day in it yesterday wearing it half zipped with a black and tan thick striped shirt underneath it, dark skinny jeans and these in black.
It is, in my opinion, the perfect coat to go out at night in, as it is the perfect weight, not too heavy, and not too light.
It is great as I wore it with jeans, and will look just as good used as a foil with a girly dress.
By far one of my favorite purchases and a steal at $29.95.
H&M does not have an e-commerce website, but here is the link to the jacket on their site.
