Happy Halloween darlings!
So I don't have a costume for you today - but I do have a feline-faced frock which I thought to be ever so apropos for this spooktastic day of the year. You know, cats and halloween go together like rama lamma lamma ka dinga da dinga dong. So if you happen to be curious at a kitten - take a hop, skip, and jump over to Flock Together where I am posting on this LB-Kitty Smothered-D.

Dress & Bag: Target
Scarf, Brooch, Shoes: Vintage
Fancy seeing palm trees and sundresses here today, right? Anyhow, I figure I'd post some pics from my stay at Hilton Head, to usher in some sunshine and warm weather vibes on le blog as the air where I live is currently chilled and my arms are covered in a fleecy blanket and wooly sweater.
Living here for a week every year certainly makes me a happy gal...can you see why? Hello pretty bright colored houses, won't you be mine? My only complaint - the humidity fogged up my camera lens and gave me blurry photos - oh well. Anyhow, I'm the biggest baby about the cold. Once it gets below 70 degrees, I'm moaning the blues, so one of these days I dream about making this little slice of heaven my dwelling place. Yeah, fingers crossed. Plus I love wearing sundresses. Who doesn't?
How about you? Do you love or loathe dressing for this cold weather? I mean sweaters are cool and all ...but sundresses.
Until next time darlings...love bunches,

Hat, Bag & Boots: Thrifted, Vintage
Oh hello there darlings,
Say hello to my autumn uniform... It seems that these fall days have brought overcast skies and buckets of rain my way so a cozy sweater, wool hat, and heavy tights are where it is at. Rain or not, this cupcake sweater and the rest of the ensemble have made it's way into rotation at least once a week if not twice if I am being honest. I just love sweaters and wooly hats this time of year...and cupcakes too. Yep, I even wore it on an outing to the corn maze and pumpkin patch with my son's preschool class. And yes, I am fully aware that this may not have been the most practical outfit to romp around the corn fields alongside of 4 year olds especially as the rest of the parents were perfectly comfy in their jeans and sweatshirts. You know us bloggers though, we just love finding reasons to "dress up", so a corn maze sounded like a pretty swell reason to me. Wouldn't you agree?
How about you? What's your autumn uniform consist of?
Until next time...love bunches,

Top & Shoes: Modcloth (sale)
Skirt: Swapped via Taylor, Nothing but a Pigeon
Scarf, Brooch, & Purchase: Vintage, thrifted
I'm back, I'm back here on my corner of the blogasphere. It's been a busy couple weeks on my side of the mountain and I'm not sure that's ending anytime soon. How has your fall been going so far?
This past weekend saw me at a lobster bbq/shrimp boil with friends and out for a hockey game & pizza with some more. As much as a homebody that I can be, I think that the best way to be busy is in the company of good people. Wouldn't all your introverts like me out there agree?
Anyhow, these photos were taken during a weekend that we were in Philly. Could you tell? This pretty lil spot, known as Plane Spotter's Place shows up on ye ole blog time and time again because it's a favorite pastime escape of the Mr. and I. As the wind was a-howlin, I opted for a longer skirt (swapped via Taylor) - not something I do very often because I am a wee height of 5'2. But you know what?...I kind of loved the ease of wearing it in this transitional weather - so thank you Taylor, for sending this basic beauty my way.
That's just about all for now. Out of curiosity...what kinds of pieces are currently not part of your daily style that you would love to give a try every now and then?

Sweater, Bag, Brooch, Scarf: Vintage - Thrifted
Shoes: Poetic License
Well fall has certainly arrived on my side of the mountain...can you tell? Anyhow, it's been another fine week of pumpkin picking, hay-riding, and baking up cinnamon-laden goodness - pumpkin brownies anyone?
Anyhow, I was delighted as ever to get my bike printed dress back in the mail after being swapped out to several of the Flock Together gals this summer and feeling like my birthday it certainly did. Of course, I was quick to throw it on and remix it for the chilly autumn weather this time around. Gotta love a cozy sweater when the air is crisp and cool. It was my single new clothing purchase during the spring and summer months, so making it work for a new season was a challenge I was certainly up to.
How about you? Do you tend to take your clothing from the summer to the winter months to stretch out your closet or when fall comes around, do you shop for a new wardrobe?
Wishing you a wonder-filled day...Love Bunches,

Bag: Old Navy
Oh hi darlings!
I don't know about you, but summer has seemed to visit us one last time before we hit autumn full force here in PA. I love fall, but I am definitely not complaining as I am a warm weather kind of gal through and through. I must admit, there's something quite pleasing about about hay-riding through a pumpkin patch and picking apples in 70 degree weather with the sun cheerily shining down on us.
Anyhow with the weather being as warm as it was, I thought what better week than to break out this umbrella doused cutie of dress from Mata Traders - without tights to boot! And I'm not gonna lie - these photos are from months back, but the outfit and sentiment are the same. So there you have it.
Other than that, my gal pals and I hit a local open mic night and preformed. It was our second time doing so, and this time around we were much less nervous and really kind of nailed it if I do say so myself. I just had to share because I am that excited about it - you know, being a shy kind of introvert and all - doing something like that is a huge ordeal for me. I even performed an original number by myself - uke, vocals, and lil ol me. Cheers to conquering fears!
With that, I wish you a wonderful Wednesday. Any big fears you've conquered lately? Do feel free to share.
