What I'm Obsessed with right now...

Halloween


I've never been able to pinpoint why but it's my favorite holiday of the year! Maybe it's all the fond memories of trick or treating as a kid or maybe it's just being able to dress up as whom ever or whatever you want without getting any crazy looks from people! Whatever it is, every time this year I festively get into the Halloween spirit by decorating, carving pumpkins, spending hours pouring over costume ideas and watching the Nightmare Before Christmas over and over.

I'm looking forward to the Halloween party my husband and I will be attending tomorrow evening with good friends! Still debating on a costume an the moment but I would love to hear what you, my readers are going as if you are planning on dressing up. So leave me a comment.

What I'm Obsessed with right now...

Leopard

If you know me, you know I have been on a constant hunt for the past 5 years to find the perfect classic button-up Leoard blouse. Still unsuccessful for now!
But....
 It's really great to see this print take off as a trend for Fall because it is easy to wear and goes with everything. So now there is Leopard in ever store and that means more options for me to pick from! Yeah! Here's to hoping I find my perfect blouse this season!

Here are a few leopard looks I am loving right now.


Can't get over how gorgeous this top is with dark brown flare cords!



Another trend I am obsessing about this season is the slipper shoe....especially in leopard!

DIY....Dreamcatcher

After a enjoying a beautiful fall weekend in northern Minnesota, I felt inspired by all the beautiful dreamcatchers I came across in a shop in Grand Rapids. When I returned, I immediately started searching for DIY's and came across the one below. Can't wait for a cold fall day to test this out! Until then, I am going to continue to enjoy these 80 degree days!

"Nightmares pass through the holes and out through the window. The good dreams are trapped in the web, And then slide down the feathers to the sleeping person."
