Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week! My girls are so excited for some Halloween fun this weekend. For their costumes this year, I literally only spent $12! Everything for Julianna's costume we already had (she's dressing up as a witch). We already had a witch hat from an old costume so she's pairing it with leggings, a little black dress that we thrifted, and her new boots from Target! I had to get a little crafty for Olivia's costume because she wanted to be a pupicorn (puppy unicorn). I got her a brown top, a faux fur vest (that I cut up to use for the fur accents on her costume), and the unicorn headband from my local Goodwill. I also found a cute puppy mask on eBay to complete the look! It turned out really cute and it was so affordable. I'm not really a crafter but you can do a lot with a pair of fabric scissors, fabric adhesive, and hot glue!

Today, I'm sharing a roundup of my what I'm Currently Loving! I'm currently loving layers, leather, and denim. They have been my go-tos lately!

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. T E E | I am loving this sassy upgrade to a basic striped tee. It needs a spot in my closet this season!

2. S N E A K E R S | These court sneakers are my favorite! I wear mine as often as possible and they are so cute with everything, including skirts and dresses. Loving the pink accents on this new pair!

3. S H I R T | Polka dots catch my attention every single time! This adorable shirt is absolutely on my wish list. I love it!

4. H E A D B A N D | You can never have enough headbands... especially when you share your collection with your 11 year old. This animal print one is so fun!

5. B O O T S | I have last year's version of these boots and they are so comfy! I got Julianna this year's version in the cognac color and she's a big fan, too. They run true to size and are so affordable!

6. C A R D I G A N | I bought this cardigan last fall and I couldn't wait to pull it out again! I wore it so much last fall and winter. It's definitely an investment piece but the quality is incredible! I sized up one size for a little extra room.

7. B R A C E L E T S | I love adding in new gold bracelets to my daily stack and this set is going to be my next addition. I love that they are stretchy and easy to put on!

8. J E A N S | I'm like a broken record sharing about perfect vintage jeans but they are amazing! The best alternative to a skinny jean and they are oh so flattering. I love them!

Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have a fun weekend!

Happy Friday! I hope y'all are doing well! This little blog has been on the backburner as I've transitioned back into my work schedule. I think I'm back into a good routine so I hope to be able to share a bit more over here now! I am so excited that it's Friday for a couple of reasons. The girls and I have a Target date planned for tomorrow (can you believe that I haven't been there in months?!) and my husband comes home on Saturday night. He's been in the Domincan Republic on a mission trip with our church this week. He had a great experience but I'm looking forward to him being safely back at home very soon.

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving! It really hasn't felt like fall around here yet. Just the occasional cool morning but I really love creating transitional outfits so I'm okay with the warmer weather sticking around. 

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. B O O T S | I already own a similar pair of boots but I am loving this budget friendly option! Now that my oldest daughter can wear women's shoes, it's been so much more fun shopping for shoes for her. I think she needs this super cute pair of boots for fall and winter!

2. S K I R T | This gorgeous skirt is high on my wish list! I am loving the color so much and it would be such a fun piece to dress up or down. I can see it styled with sneakers, sandals, or boots. A great piece that would work throughout the seasons!

3. T O P | I have a similar top in my closet and I love the neckline. It's just so flattering! A long sleeve black top is a closet staple and it's so great for layering during the cooler months.

4. J E A N S | I haven't had a pair of jeans on my body in over five months but when I do pull the jeans back out, they will definitely be perfect vintage! They are my all time favorite style!

5. B A G | How fun is this puff tote bag?! I have been seeing this puffy style a lot lately and it's definitely on my wish list to find a puffy bag. I love this one!

6. H E A D B A N D | I have owned two of these headbands and I think my kiddo has lost both of them. Thankfully, it's on sale right now so I can grab a new one. The most comfortable headband of all time!

7. R I N G | I love signet rings to wear on my ring hand. I love the black detail on this one!

8. D R E S S | This dress is probably my favorite item in this week's roundup. A flannel dress in the prettiest colors?! Yes, please! Also, it has pockets. I need it!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend!

Happy Friday and Happy First Day of October! I hope you've had a great weekend! The month of September seemed to fly by. Did it feel that way for anyone else?! Actually, this year has seemed to go by too quickly. I'm already missing summertime because I'm a summer girl at heart but I do enjoy a good flannel and a trip to the mountain during the fall. Also, I was born in the fall so that's fun, too.

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving! I put together this week's picks pretty quickly because I have been loving so many new fall arrivals. Madewell shared a photo of a satin skirt with a sweatshirt and I cannot wait to recreate a similar look! I love the juxtaposition of a fancier piece with a casual item. It's kind of my own personal philosophy for getting dressed! I am all about the comfy, cozy yet chic life!

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. T O P | I am loving this top! How pretty would it be paired with a pair of high waisted jeans?! You just can't go wrong with a beautiful black top like this one. I love the details!

2. S N E A K E R S | I already own these sneakers in a different colorway and they are my current favorites. I wear mine all of the time, especially with dresses! Again, juxtaposition. I am loving the touches of black on this new color option!

3. J A C K E T | My most worn item in my closet is definitely my denim jacket. I bring it with me everywhere, just in case I get cold. It's such a fun layer! My go-to jacket is distressed but I have my eye on this one for a more classic option. I love the quality of all of my Able pieces!

4. B R A C E L E T | I wear a stack of gold bracelets every single day and this one needs a spot in my stack. I love it!

5. C L O G S | I wore the pair of clogs with coveralls (that I thrifted new with tags) to church last week and I got lots of questions about them. I bought mine from Target last fall but the pair featured in this week's roundup is a great, similar option! So cute for fall!

6. S H I R T | This shirt was one of the items I got during the Madewell sale last week and I've already worn it three times. It's 100% cotton and so soft! I sized up one size for an even extra oversized fit that works perfectly with leggings. It also comes in two other colors as well!

7. B A G | This bag is on my wish list! I don't have a black crossbody bag but I think I am going to have to change that with this gorgeous bag. I love the puffy leather!

8. S K I R T | Like I mentioned above, I am on a mission to pair a satin skirt with a sweatshirt and this skirt is a great option! It comes in several great colors that are perfect for dressing up or down.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend!
