Happy Halloween, to all my readers! This weekend, my friends and I went upstate to New Paltz, NY, to pack in as many “fall” activities you can in a weekend! The weather was absolutely perfect – a perfect crisp fall weekend and unbeatable fall foliage.

We went apple and pumpkin picking at Dubois Farms in Highland, NY before venturing off to some local vineyards.

My first outfit of the weekend was spent for apple and pumpkin picking, and I have to admit I didn’t really pack appropriately when it came to my footwear.  For some reason, I wasn’t thinking we would be walking around in dirt and mud, so I packed my suede block heeled booties; luckily, we didn’t run into too much mud!

Love the casual feel of my outfit, the long-line hooded sweater was purchased last week from, you’ll never guess where… Forever 21… for under $23!! Great find, and the long sweaters are very “in” this season, my wardrobe feels like I time hopped back to middle school with the chokers, long sweaters, flared jeans, etc.

My blockheel suede booties, were also a crazy deal, for ONLY$28 and they’re super comfy! Lulus.com has unbelievable deals on gorgeous boots!

Hat: Similar; 1. here (under $15!), 2. here, 3. here (splurge)

 

Tee: N-sale purchase; Lush Deep-V Neck Tee

Denim: Banana Republic (Old); Similar: 1. Here, 2. Here, 3. Here (Splurge) 4. Here 5. Here

Sunnies: Ray Ban Aviator

Lips: MAC Creme D’Nude

Nails: Essie “Perfectly Picked” 

I ended my fall-fun-filled weekend making my family’s recipe, homemade Apple Crisp! How did you spend your Halloween weekend?!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!!

As promised, below are my top picks for the #nsale which opens to the public today!! In my opinion, it’s the best sale of the entire year!! These items are all brand new fall / winter wardrobe pieces that are on sale to up to 40%!  Once August 8th comes around, all of these items featured in the sale will go back up to original price!

As mentioned in my last post, an insider note, you should just buy whatever size available (if yours if not available) and then do an exchange once the sale ends and the inventory is restocked.  That way you ARE guaranteed to be locked into the anni sale price.  This is the perfect time to stock up on this fall’s favorite boots, dresses, sweaters, demin, outerwear, handbags, cosmetics, etc.  Below are my TOP picks for the 2016 Nordstrom Anni Sale!

Which items are you going to buy??
