What I’m Into Volume 14

Happy Halloween! While it’s not my favorite holiday, I do love that Halloween is a sign that Thanksgiving is not so far away. My boyfriend and I are going as Waldo and Wenda, as in Where’s Waldo? The weather here in Pittsburgh is supposed to be cold and rainy, and possibly snowy. Yes, you read that correctly. Snow. At least I’ll be warm in this year’s costume! If you’re going out for Halloween, have fun and be safe!

In other news, reality really set in this week. I applied for graduation and registered for my last semester of classes! I’m sure you’re probably sick of me talking about school and all of these senior year changes, but I know there are many of you who are going through the same thing. Thank you to everyone who has given me words of encouragement during this time!

Fall Trend: Ankle Boots

Monday’s post was all about the blanket scarf trend. But one of my other favorite fall trends is undoubtedly the ankle boot, or “booties” as they are sometimes called. I have the TOMS wedges above in chestnut, but would love to add a different pair of ankle boots to my closet. I really love this trend paired with boyfriend jeans rolled up. Add a blazer to keep the look casual but sophisticated.

My favorites are definitely Madewell’s Perrie Boots in rock and suede (bottom left and top right). Do you have a pair of ankle boots that are must-haves? Let me know in the comments below!

On another note, this is my 100th post! Yay! Here’s to many more.

The Best Scarf in the World

This outfit consists of some of my favorite fall basics: a great pair of combat boots, a cozy sweater, and my trusty army jacket. These will continue to be wardrobe staples for me this season. It’s just so easy to put together an outfit like this.

Wearing: Zara blanket scarf (most similar here) | Urban Outfitters jacket (similar here) | Banana Republic sweater (love this year’s version) | Steve Madden boots 

This scarf is without a doubt the best scarf in the world and the shining star of this ensemble. Beyond cozy. I am in love with the blanket scarf trend this season. If you follow a lot of bloggers, then I’m sure you’ve seen this Zara scarf before. This is last year’s scarf, and I was devastated when it was no longer available. Believe it or not, I actually found it on Amazon for around $23.

Luckily for you lovely readers, many companies have come out with their own version of the blanket scarf. I’ve shared some options with you below. The best part? All of these come at affordable prices, so you can buy one, two, or three!

What I’m Into Volume 13

One midterm down. One to go. Ugh. As much as I don’t want to wish away this time, I’m so ready for mid semester mayhem to be over.

This week is homecoming at Pitt, which I’m very excited about. We have a big game this Saturday. Go Panthers! My dad is coming to the game, so it’ll be fun to meet up with him, although I know after seeing him I’ll be extra anxious for Thanksgiving and break. By the way, Thanksgiving is a little over a month away. OMG! I’m already thinking about the holidays. Is it just me, or did this year go by really quickly.

Some of my favorite links this week are from some of my favorite bloggers. I hope you enjoy the links below, and I hope you enjoy your weekend too! xo
