haute halloween

Morning! I’ll be honest, it was not easy getting out of bed today. Like it or not, I’ve officially been plagued with my first fall cold. This sore throat is somethin else, and I wish I could just hang in bed all day. I grew up in an OJ / Advil / plenty of rest family, but I’m always intrigued by other people’s remedies for when they’re feeling under the weather. Tell me, what are your tricks for when you have a cold? Homeopathic or OTC, tell me your secrets!

Speaking of tricks, I couldn’t help but put together a little Halloween mood board for the upcoming holiday. I think I’ve got my costume down (here’s what I was last year), but I’ll be running out to purchase some finishing touches later today. What are you all being?

There’s nothing better than testing out your favorite Fall purchases on a chilly beach in October. If you’re wondering, the answer is yes I did change shirts crouched behind a car. On the real though, you don’t have to dramatically change up your wardrobe every time the seasons change. Buy two stand alone pieces like I’ve done here and wear them all season long. Each of the above can be paired with a skirt, slacks, or blue jeans, with or without a shirt underneath. And that’s not even including accessories. Just like that, I spent $150 on 2 pieces and gained 10 new outfits.

what i’m up to…

Oh HI friends!

So, I realized that it’s been a while since I showed you all what I’m working on. This week I’m e-styling a family photoshoot, and I could not be more excited about it. I knew I loved dressing up my nephews, but I had no idea I would get so much of a thrill sourcing clothing for little bodies. Turns out, I do! Check it:

The Mama’s only requirement for this shoot was colorful pants for the boys. And if you’re thinking “CHRISTMAS!” then you’re wrong for two reasons. The first would be, they’re not red, they’re burnt orange. And the second would be:  just open your MIND!

And if you’re wondering what the parents will be wearing, here’s a very preliminary sneak peek:

Her: Jacket // Shirt // Jeans // Shoes

Him: Sweater // Shirt // Pants // Shoes

I might push a pop of color for Mom…probably shoes. You see how we keep things cohesive but not matchy matchy? No two pieces are the same. What do you think?

LRW birthday giveaway!

Morning friends! So…funny story, Raven and I got home from Baltimore last night and wanted to relax with a drink or two. I was too tired to run out to the store, so I got wine delivered. Yes, you read that right. I called up a store, told them what I wanted, and they delivered it to my door like takeout food. I’m not sure what kind of person I am for doing this, let alone admitting it, but all I can say is only in New York!

We had a blast in Baltimore this weekend and I’m ready to hit the ground running this week and bring you guys some awesome posts.

Oh, and this week is the final week of the #happybirthdayLRW giveaway extravaganza! I cannot think of a better way to celebrate the birth of this blog than to giveaway a gift certificate to one of my favorite retailers. That’s right, this week I’m giving away a $50 gift certificate to ASOS!

Check out some of my favorite items from ASOS below, and then comment below with your favorite ASOS item to enter…winner announced on Friday!

Happy Friday, friends! It’s supposed to be a nice one today in NYC, albeit cold (which I love). Raven and I are headed to Baltimore tonight to visit his brother and see the BROS production of The Electric Pharaoh. If you’re in the DC/Baltimore area, please check out the BROS (Baltimore Rock Opera Society), they’re hilarious and magical and so much fun, and it’s a wonderful thing to support local theater. We’re bringing Charlie with us, who loves a good roap trip, so be sure to check Instagram for some updates! Below are some of my favorite links from this week:

Affordable find jewelry.

How to throw shade via GIF.

This NYC nail salon sounds amazing.

Oh, I want these shoes.

Vibrator roundup (NSFW).

Apple Pay guide (anyone else excited?).

RIP Oscar de la Renta.

A cozy sweater and the raincoat that reminds me of growing up.

Jaime King’s closet is perfection.

Thank you, Cup of Jo, for this!

And the winner of this week’s Amika shampoo set is…

KARIN!!!! 

I’ll be emailing you shortly, congrats!

See you Monday!
