Happy almost Halloween – is your Christmas tree up yet? 😉 I’m so stoked to be heading into the most wonderful time of the year. This month’s favorites took a few rounds of edits + tweaks as new favorites were found and added to the mix – so you can be confident this final batch is *chef’s kiss* fabulous. Let’s just get right there…
Never have I ever dropped the kinda cash on joggers that I spent on these bad boys – but I can confidently say they were 10000000% worth it. I was shopping with Chelsie and walked past the Vuori display in Nordstrom, casually grabbing to touch them since I had been hearing every blogger and her mother recommending the brand. I literally GASPED and said OH MY GOD, C, THESE JOGGERS. She said, “I KNOW, I HAVE THEM.” There was only one pair left in my size, so enter Erica’s Rule; I tried them on and that was history. They’re buttery soft and just feel dreamy on; they don’t pill or collect fur/hair/etc, and they’re fitted enough to look and feel more chic than your usual sweatpant joggers. They’re lightweight with a functional drawstring + pockets, and I just am itching to pull the trigger on another pair…lookin’ at you, Santa. 😉
Color me shocked that this Barefoot Dreams-inspired wrap is NOT EVEN 30 BUCKS. I mean, Barefoot Dreams blankets in the same sorta leopard print are $180; granted, this is a *bit* lighter weight than the real deal BD blankets, but it’s a totally fabulous wrap to wear out for errands or keep at your desk. I brought it with me to the Catskill Mountains on our little anniversary weekend getaway and it was CLUTCH to just curl up in on the couch with a book. TALK ABOUT COZY. Also, the greatest thing is its universality as a GIFT. I mean, it’s one size fits all and what lady wouldn’t lovelovelove a super cute, cozy blanket-like wrap?! I grabbed a few to have on hand for easy gifting for girlfriends etc! (Think mother-in-law who has everything, the hostess with the mostest, your coworker who is always cold!
Thankyou Gen Z for inspiring this gem of an Amazon purchase. I grabbed a pack of crew socks to do the whole layer-over-leggings look, and I’m hooked! Literally wearing a pair now as we speak (or as I type? You get the picture). This pack in particular is soft, warm, and extra comf. They’ve got a bit of a cushioned feel!
This jumpsuit had been on my shopping list for awhile, so when C and I found them in store on our recent mall adventure, we tried them on and were instantly sold. It’s clear why they’re a bestseller – they’re so dang COMFY and really can work on all body types. It feels like wearing pajamas; you can cuff or roll the bottom hem depending on your height or footwear, and you can layer with short or long sleeves depending on the season (we had on sports bras underneath trying on in-store and it even looked cute that way!). I will 100% be grabbing another, probably in a fun color for spring/summer!
You know I’m a sucker for a dainty gold necklace, and this new one of mine is a total gem – and would also make a fabulous gift for her. It’s from a woman-owned small shop and each little tag is handstamped; you can get up to 5 with little icons on each, so it makes for a super meaningful gift for a girlfriend, sister, mom, in-law, etc since you can completely customize each tag to represent something important in her life. Doing this for someone on my own shopping list!
I snagged this vest during a sale because it looked like a chic alternative to a puffy, wintry vest and was so pleasantly surprised when it came in. It’s the softest, creamiest “sherpa” that feels so luxurious, and it’s warm without the bulk! I wore it hiking in upstate New York and it was great for a mid-50’s day without feeling like I was a marshmallow.
LOVELOVELOVE x 1000000. I am so glad I snagged these! Originally, you may remember from Instagram Stories, I had been mulling over two entirely different pairs. But once I found these, it was a no brainer. A.) Because I like how these look more, and B.) because these are HALF THE PRICE of the others!
They’re also insanely comfortable, almost unexpectedly so. I put them on and gasped because they might be the comfiest Nikes in my closet now! I was chatting with one of you in IG DMs about how they’d actually work as a “Disney shoe,” for which you know I have the highest standards of comfort. I’d give these a go!
Bless up and add to cart. (They’re TTS)
MAC lip liners have always been a favorite of mine – they’re foolproof. This shade in particular is a deliciously warm neutral, especially great for autumn (in my humble opinion 🙂 ).
This has been the staple of the season for me – I’ve worn it countless times already since getting it in the mail. As a layering piece, it’s easy and comfy. And for not even $16, it’s a STEAL.
I sized up one for a slightly more oversized fit that would cover my bum with leggings. I ordered it in the creamy “papyrus” color, too!
ACTUALLY, I’m wearing basically ALL favorites in this quick mirror shot: the tunic, vest, socks AND sneakers!
Fun Char-BOO-terie boards
I’ve had the MOST fun this month putting together fun little Char-BOO-terie boards for various themed get togethers and parties. My Hocus Pocus cheese board was a huge hit on Instagram leading up to the premiere of HP2, and this board of sweet treets was a fun addition to a couple’s costume board party that J and I recently attended together! I linked their respective reels to give you a quick step-by-step recap of how I put each together, so hopefully they’re an easy thing to bookmark for your own re-creations. 🙂
