Happy Halloween

It's Halloween which means its officially O.K. to start thinking about the Holidays. From recipes to drinks to shopping to decor, it's time to get it in gear! I've got a few ideas in store for the coming weeks, all to help B and I get in the spirit without it feeling like its too early to celebrate the season. 
{Spicy GingerMan Cocktail via}
Vanilla, Hazelnut, Butterscotch and Ginger. YUM. It's like Fall/Winter in a glass. 
{Holiday bedding via}
New bedding for November through February. Our normal bedding has somewhat of a nautical feel to it which is great for Spring/Summer but I wanted something that reflected the season. I'm always ready for a change come March anyways, so the temporary switch is a great way to make an old duvet feel new again. Our walls and accessories are all neutral which makes the change super easy!
{Faux Boxwood Garland via}
I love natural pine garland outside, but it makes a huge mess inside and can even ruin a vacuum cleaner. I decided to go faux this year (indoors at least), using a green that doesn't exclusively evoke a sense of Winter. I can add sprigs of changing leaves and gourds up until Thanksgiving then switch to lights and ornaments come December.  Zero clean-up and versatility are two huge perks in my book. The price is pretty awesome too.

I plan on testing a version of this recipe using ham, egg and a dijon mustard sauce and will hopefully perfect it in time to make for my parents on Christmas Eve. The past few years we've made this stew but it's time for a change. We're definitely a meat and potatoes kind of family. Clearly I'm excited about the season! 
What are you looking forward to most? Me? I'll be cherishing time with friends and family and remembering those we lost this year.
Until next time-
Don't forget to Fall back this weekend!

A Hint of Edge

Today I thought I'd step outside my comfort zone and step into something
a little edgier than I'd normally wear. Here goes nothing!
 
Dress//Scarf//Jacket-Nordstrom Rack (similar)//Bag//Booties (similar)//Target Tights
I'm the farthest thing from what I consider to be "edgy," but I think I might be adopting 
this look/style a little more often this fall/winter. I kinda dig it...
Until next time-
Here's to a bit of edge,

Keeping Cozy

We recenlty had a bit of a cold front blow through Tulsa and are now experiencing a bit chillier weather. I thought I'd share some of my favorite cozy scarves/capes/wraps since it finally feels a little more like fall here in town!

Pinion Dress

I'm always surprised by the dresses I overlook on Anthropologie's website. Sometimes I don't even give them a second look then see them in the store and fall head over heels. This was definitely one of those dresses for me- it looks like it's missing something online but it's gorgeous in person!
Dress//Heels (similar)//Bag//Earrings (similar
Full skirt- check. Awesome pattern- check. Great material- check. POCKETS- check. It's also one of those dresses that can be worn with tights in the winter or without them during the warmer months. It looks good with nude/black/blue and requires little effort in the way of dressing it up. OH! And as far as Anthro goes, it's on the lower price end- I really can't think of one negative thing about this dress!
Until next time-
Thanks for stopping by!
