Fall On Fleek

dress: NJRack      tights: H&M      boots: Call It Spring       necklace: thrifted

When I first saw this dress I was devastated because it sold out SO.DANG.FAST I'm talking so fast I didn't even have time to be like hmmmmm would I like to purchase this??  It's depressing really, it was mid summer and I was seriously in need of an easy going toss over your head and look effortless dress. Well lo and behold it was just restocked and so I slapped on a pair of tights and some booties and hello fall dress. Please go grab one before they sell out again. If you really need an excuse to buy it you can wear it with garland and lights and call your Christmas dress,  crap now I'm legitimately tossing that idea around in my head. A word to the wise, listen to your dear friend Sarah and size down if you so choose to join me in this lovely cotton wonderland I'm living in:)

DIY Last Minute Thrift Store Halloween Costume

 Every year I hit up my local Deseret Industries to make my own costume, they have an entire area devoted just to Halloween costumes. There is something so fun about going to DI, having no idea what you are going to find and then letting your creativity fly fly away. So this year I wanted to show you a fun costume you can make at home! Pretty much any DI will have all of the items you need to make this Frida Kahlo costume, I went to my DI in Provo, which had a sweet selection, but here's a list of locations so you can find one near you!

Here's what I did for the costume.

1. I hit up the dress section because if DI has anything, it is an abundance of mumu's. Find the craziest most tropical looking mumu there. The crazier the pattern the better!

2. Next head to the flower section, it's usually by the decor and trinket area. Grab any bunch of flowers that matches your dress. I grabbed two bunches so I had a bit of variety. Once you get home cut out each individiually so you can place them in your hair.

3. I couldn't find a stuffed monkey to sew on to my shoulder but do me a solid and check the stuffed animal section for a shoulder monkey because I mean, how freaking perfect would that be.

4. Next up earrings, the bigger the better!

5. Don't forget the shoes, you could go for something easy like my black flats so that trick or treating won't be a nightmare. Or if you're going to a Halloween party find some crazy strappy red heels!

6. Follow THIS TUTORIAL for you hair. And then place the flowers in your hair.

7. For your makeup add a bold red lip and use either brown eyeshadow or an eyebrow pencil to get your unibrow on!

I hope you guys enjoy this costume idea! One thing I always remember to do with my costume is donate it once I'm done with it. I know I know it seems super silly. But for some reason I feel like if I donate the one I wore then someone else somewhere will be donating an even sweeter costume for next year ha ha. Is costume karma a thing?? It must be because look at this Frida glory!!

On Repeat

t-shirt: H&M    cardigan: Soel Boutique   shoes: Circus by Sam Edelman   hat: Old Navy  necklace: Happiness Boutique   leggings: Supa Old

Fall is my favorite because you can be lazy and still look like you're half way trying. Just layer until your nice and cozy, wear all things stretchy and fuzzy and bam. Fall chic. This combo will be on SERIOUS repeat all season.
