All Hallow's Eve

This Halloween I wanted to do something extra fun for the blog to celebrate the season.  It all started in the Halloween aisle of my local Goodwill, and unfurled from there!  A lot of planning went into this one, as well as trying out some fun new things I had not attempted before!  So last week my friend Mandy and I took a trip to the woods to shoot something spooky!

Something wicked this way comes, and we hope you enjoy! :)

Sabrina Inspired Stylings


Hey guys!

For my last costume inspiration post, I wanted to do an outfit that had a spooky tie in it.  I've been obsessed with Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, a new tv show with a dark spin on the classic Sabrina the Teenage Witch.   While the show is much creepier than I usually am into, I am loving every bit of it and anxiously awaiting the release date for the third season!

Hello, Pumpkin!


As we near All Hallow's Eve, I thought I would style a fun festive Halloween inspired outfit that is fun and comfortable for everyday living!  It's mostly brought together with this wood candy corn necklace that I've had for as long as I can remember back, but made extra spooky with a fun black pinafore dress, striped knit top, cat socks, and witchy shoes!  :)

Stationery Design From Our Wedding


Reception Photo by Eva Galka

Gosh, there is just so much to share with all of these planning posts.  It feels so strange sharing this stuff now after all this time for so many reasons.  The wedding was over 2 months ago now, and not only that, but we planned it for three years prior to that.  I really didn't want to spoil any surprise for people who came, so I didn't share a whole lot with people before the day.  I think it really worked out for the best doing it that way, because people didn't know what to expect leading up to it, and that was kinda fun.  But it makes for a strange sharing experience now, as it all feels so big now to share what Andrew and I were essentially working on in secret for three years!

October Forever

I'm pretty enamoured with this week's outfit post because I feel like it incorporates some of my very favorite things — plaid, tie front blouse/dresses, and textured neutrals— and so much of this fab look was sourced secondhand.  I've had a conflicted relationship with fast fashion for a long time, because I do

Audrey Hepburn Style


Everybody loves the iconic Audrey Hepburn style.  The classic black gloves, sleeveless black dress with pearls, the hat.  So do I.

But I decided I'd love to do a little bit of a new spin on the classic look by restyling the Breakfast At Tiffany's inspiration from different scenes in the movie.

You Need to Calm Down... and Just be Marvelous


I have seriously been so excited for this and a few upcoming posts for so long now.  Get ready for some Halloween costume inspo from yours truly hitting the blog today and in the next couple weeks!

My first installment in this series is inspired by The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel that I have been loving. so. much.

Varsity Vibes

I'm sure anyone who knows me in real life following this is thinking, "Why is Lindsay anywhere near a football field?".  I'll be the first to admit that sports aren't really my thing, and that can be case-in-point summed up by the fact that in trying to figure out where I should shoot this outfit, I asked Andrew where the nearest "Football Fork" would be.

I've been informed they're called goal posts, and not 'football forks', 'pitches' or any other variation of those that I would have come up with.

Reworking and Redesigning My Closet


When we first moved into our apartment — and honestly every apartment we've moved into or lived in since moving out of my parents house — I never gave much thought to changing around my closet.  I think often when we rent, we're thinking about things in the temporary.  We're thinking, 'well eventually one day I'll have a good couch, or organize my clothes, or try to hang up pictures.'

And while I've always been the one to push the envelope and hammer nails into the wall and put up pictures on a whim, I've always taken that closet part at face value: this is the closet I have here, and I'll just throw my stuff in it.

It wasn't until maybe 8 months ago that I started thinking to myself, "why haven't I used any of the tricks that I've learned as a clothing merchandiser to better interact with my own closet?".

Lovely Bakes: Lemon Blackberry Fig Cake

Fun Fact:  I had never actually eaten figs until this summer.

Basically, I guess I've always kind of been aware that figs were 'a thing', but up until about 4 months ago, if you mentioned figs to me, I would immediately think of fig newton cookies, and the thought would stop there.

Pumpkin and Spice is Nice

Well, hello October!

As is customary here in the midwest, this week as we plunge into fall we've gone from 85 degrees and thunderstorming and nose-dived 20+ degrees overnight to 57 degrees and damp!   Still, I'm getting excited seeing the tips of leaves starting to turn color and bright yellow hues popping up and dotting the trees here and there along the highways.  I'm thinking it will only be a week or so till we get full blown colorama around here :).
