What I Want: Plaid Scarf

Moorea Seal, $28
How perfect is this scarf?!  I think it would be great for fall.  I love the idea of adding just a little touch of plaid to an outfit.  For some reason, I equate a nice plaid like this with being all cozy and warm.  I can picture this scarf with a camel color coat and a great pair of brown boots.
Happy Halloween to all of you!  Any fantastic weekend plans?   My plans include sleeping on my brand new down pillow top mattress pad cover.  Double yum

Halloween Eve

Since this is my last post before Halloween, I had to share our Halloween with you.  Children just love to dress up and my kids had very definite ideas about what they wanted to be this year.  My son read the Lord of The Rings books and was set on a Black Rider costume.  I don't know if anyone will know what he is but that's beside the point.  My daughter had to be a wolf.  I had some convincing to do in order to make the costume acceptable to me.  There was just no way I was letting my 1st grader wear some scary wolf costume.  A friend gave me an idea and I designed a fur cape, skirt, leg warmers and gloves with claws.  We purchased a mask online (push the nose and it howls).  I think it is unique and a bit glam!  I also included a nod to Dr. Who with the "bad wolf" embroidered on her fur trick- or- treat bag.  A big thanks to my mom for sewing everything.

I included a few images from our Halloween party last weekend since I don't have the photos my friend took for me yet.  As you can see, there was a lot of sugar!  Again, thank you mom for the treats.
Happy Halloween Eve!

Autumn at Horchow

When I came upon Horchow's gorgeous blue and white Autumn table I had to share.  There are having a sale event right now and I see a few things I would love.  How gorgeous is this blue, white and orange scheme?  It is not the traditional fall color palette but blue and white together is very traditional, so I think it totally works.  If you already have a blue and white scheme in your home, these are the perfect images to inspire your fall home.
Orange tulips, white garden roses, orange garden roses, Delphinium, Safflower, faux bittersweet, A Blue Willow Thanksgiving Tablescape, Blue...
My daughter and I are home with colds today...boo!  We had a busy and fun weekend with the Halloween party I gave Saturday (pictures to come) and I have started back to school to get my teaching credential as of last night.  Things are going warp speed!  Now I just have to lose these sniffles.

Monday, Monday

I know it's Monday, and I am excited to start a new week, but it's Monday, and doesn't this picture make you want to crawl through your screen and just cuddle up in that bed all day long?!
I bit the bullet on Friday and ordered a pillow top down mattress pad cover thing (I don't know what to actually call it, apparently), and I am hoping that it will be like the one that we slept on when we went to Vegas.  It's not supposed to get here until Thursday, so I am really looking forward to Thursday!
Anyway, here's hoping that your Monday is a good one!

Bangs and a Busy Weekend Ahead

As you can see, I got a new hairstyle!  I've been wanting to take the plunge with bangs again.  I have had them in the past and like them, although they are a bit of a pain.  Long hair girls like me need to shake things up sometimes and bangs are a good way to do that.
I hope you all have a great weekend.  I am throwing a Halloween party for my kids and their friends on Saturday.  I have a lot to do to get ready!
What are you up to this weekend?

What I Got: Loft Belt

Loft Belt, $20
This belt has been featured on various outfits on Loft forever.  Well, maybe not forever, but for a very long time.  But it was never available for sale.  Until now.  Now it is available, and it is only $20!  I picked one up in Sunday and wore it Tuesday, and I love it.
I hope your week is going well!
