(Creepy) Crawlers!

I'm not much of a Halloween girl, but I do love those who get in the holiday spirit- no matter what holiday it is.  My friends K and C have been hiding this hideous plastic mask (they call him Harvey) all over their house to scare the other when discovered...or my other friend S preps for the 300+ trick or treaters who come to their house every year (yes, you read that right- THREE HUNDRED).  It's great to see us all taking a little break from reality to dip into fantasy.

Since I'm more of a fashion girl, my Halloween contribution is this adorable trend of crawling earrings...they are positioned on your ear as if they are literally climbing up...kinda creepy and yet, super cool.  Here are my favs:

Like ice...
Bauble Bar $32
Starlight, Starbright
Anthropologie $32
Geometrically inspired...
Etsy $25
Happy Halloween, y'all!

Break in the Backpack

I took a little respite from blogging, but fear not- my ideas were still flowing over the last few months!  October is here...transitioning us to all things harvest-y and fall.  I spent the summer purging (and consigning) a ton of clothing and accessories that just don't need to live in my quaint little condo anymore.  I came across my large bin of handbags...scaled back and assessed a few possible updates.  Some gals carry a different one every day, while others carry one until it falls apart.  I fall somewhere in between.  I carry a handbag (or pocketbook as they say here in New England) for a month, and then change it up. 

October inspired me to try a backpack.  Not like "I'm headed back to school" backpack, but an adult version with some classic details.  What do you think?  I'm going to give it a shot.

This caught my eye in a recent issue of Redbook magazine. 
LOVE the tassels.
I covet this if I ever win the lottery.

Honestly, faux leather looks amazing!
Happy October shopping, friends!
