A high end  Halloween look is easily attainable on a budget. We do a huge Halloween production at our house each year for the neighborhood trick or treaters. It involves lots of props and role players. There is usually a theme each year- zombies, clowns/carnival, etc. Unfortunately, there is often little money left for costumes. Keep reading to find out how I come up with costumes without breaking the bank.

How to wear plaid to the office- 9 to 5 Style


Welcome to 9 to 5 Style! The third  Monday of every month Jennie of A Pocketful of Polka Dots and I will showcase a theme featuring our individual takes on a professional look. Our aim is to inspire and show professional style does not have to mean boring and without personality. We hope you enjoy our 9 to 5 Style!

It's my favorite Monday of the month- 9 to 5 Style with Jennie at A Pocketful of Polka Dots. This month we chose plaid as our theme.

Plaid can be a little tricky for a conservative office like mine. Most plaid shirts would be frowned upon at my work, so I have to stick to skirts, pants and shirt dresses in a more traditional subtle pattern.

Cozy fall sale picks- Saturday Shopping

We took a little vacation in the mountains this week. I had visions of snuggling by a fire and drinking coffee while wrapped in a blanket all week. It didn't happen as the temps remained quite warm for the week.  It finally started to feel like fall the very last day, so I still have cozy things on my mind.  Express is having 40% off sale and Loft has sweaters and tops 40% off this weekend. Macy's is also taking 25% off purchases this weekend with code FRESH, so here are my picks from these sales.

Camel and grey

As soon as fall and winter rolls around, I break out my camel blazer. Even though it's still quite warm, I didn't waste any time breaking it out this year.







Blazer- JCrew Factory
shirt- Nordstrom  option
pants- Loft  option  option
shoes- Payless
necklace- Rocksbox try for free code FONDABFF


I love pairing camel with grey, and I was really pleased with the pop of burgundy with this. You can get a lot of mileage out of a camel blazer, whether you work in a conservative office environment or a more relaxed environment. It's perfect with jeans and a top for fall. I highly recommend you add a camel blazer to your closet. This is my second one.

A dark floral print kimono makes the perfect layer for a warm fall. I should also mention this one is less than $11!
