This Halloween is going to be a good one! I’ve had so much fun playing with Elf Cosmetics and creating easy looks from home with pieces I already own. I paired this gingham top with my new favorite distressed denim from ShopBop, then added my leather fringe booties and added eyeliner in their intense formula for my eyes and in their soft clickable pencil to my face to create the stitches of a scarecrow. Then I added my favorite black hat and poof! I have a Scarecrow Halloween Costume xx ShopBop.
I’m all sorts of excited for Halloween this year, especially since G and I have been decorating for our epic 90’s band, spooky haunted house themed Halloween party. I can not wait to spend time celebrating the holiday with all of our friends, just like my parents used to do. It is such a fun tradition and one I hope we continue throughout the years. Have a very happy, spooky Halloween weekend!
This last trip to Utah I couldn’t help but stop at my very favorite boutique in Provo called Soel. They have the most incredible clothing, jewelry, candles and more and I could wait to try on these cute blouses and sweaters.
Carmen and I stopped in to try on a few pieces and I couldn’t wait to share them with you here!

I was so excited to receive ELF Cosmetics Halloween inspired products in the mail. Their false lashes are amazing to work with as well as their intense eyeliner. I created this dark bunny Halloween costume xx ELF cosmetics look using their eye palette, their black lipstick, their false lashes and lining my eyes with their intense eye liner. Then I used their black clickable pencil liner to create my bunny nose and whiskers. Playing with makeup is so much fun especially for Halloween and ELF Cosmetics make it easy breezy as well as an incredible price point. I paired a black body suit with leather leggings and a leather jacket to create a dark palette, then added simple lace bunny ears and my suede black heels. I love creating costumes from things I have in my closet already! I’ll be sharing another simple to create Halloween costume later this week.
This weekend was full of beauty treatments including a manicure and pedicure and planning and decorating for G and I’s Halloween party. I’ll be sharing another ELF Cosmetics costume here and I also found the cutest little pirate costume I can’t wait to share here!
These skin care products are heavenly! c/o Colleen Rothschild their Radiant Cleansing Balm and Face Oil #9
Two of my favorite Fall Lippies c/o Makeup Forever in Matte M401 and Creme C211
This pink dress is one of my favorite purchases this fall. I first saw it at Nordstrom and tried it on a dozen times. I headed back to pick it up on sale but they were out of my size. Fast forward a couple of months and I scored it for under $20 at Nordstrom Rack! I love a good deal and pretty pink dresses are my favorite! I paired it with loads of pink accessories from my aviators to my shoes, bag and bangles and then added my Daniel Wellington Watch for a pop of darker color! I also added this dark look by Kokie Cosmetics and am sharing some of my favorite lippies by Makeup Forever and skincare by Colleen Rothschild. I love good beauty products and they are two I’ve been using a lot of lately!
Yesterday Shan and I shot the first of my Halloween looks and I can not wait to share it with you next week! It was so fun doing Halloween makeup and getting into the spooky spirit of All Hallows Eve. My parents had a costume party every year and really got into it and G is doing the same this year so I can not wait to celebrate!
This past weekend in Utah I headed to one of my old favorites – American Eagle. It was so fun to be in my old stomping grounds, a place I worshipped in middle school, high school and college and even worked for a semester. I love their stretch denim leggings with such good distressed details! Their tie dye, choker and criss cross necklines were so gorgeous too and they had such a great pick of fall hats.

This Tied up Bordeaux xx Nordstrom is one of my favorite purchases from Nordstrom’s Anniversary. I love the rich bordeaux color, the bell sleeve and the fit. I paired it here with leather leggings, dark green suede booties, and then accessorized with a dark floral Ted Baker clutch, bangles and dark sunnies. I love simple black leggings for fall paired with sweaters and often layered with a cardigan and coat but with fake fall happening over here in San Diego it’s one layer only needed.
This weekend was magical! I spent time with my friend Sandy getting our hair done at Runway Hair by Meg (see more of here work HERE) and shooting with Shailynn Photo and Film, meeting my blogger gals for sushi, enjoying my niece’s and grandfather’s birthday parties, enjoying dinner with Meeno and then driving the Alpine loop before family pictures. I love Utah but I’m so glad to be back home in San Diego!
Its here it’s here it’s here! One of my absolute favorite clothing sites is having an incredible sale! Just head to ShopBop.com now through Friday October 14th at Midnight PST to shop all the best deals on incredible brands including Free People, Rebecca Minkoff and more! Don’t forget to use MAINEVENT16 at checkout to save! I’ve rounded up some of my favorites.
This two piece ruched blouse and skirt by Kulayan has the best fit, the prettiest neckline and a lot of ruching for added texture. I love the look of the pieces worn together and these pieces are made organic cotton and bamboo which makes them incredibly soft and breathable.
I’m headed to SLC this weekend for a quick little trip! I love fall time and family and friends and have loads of plans squeezed into those 3 short weekend days including meeting up with some of my blogger babes, my niece’s birthday, my grandpa’s 90th, family pictures and loads of family time.
G and I went on a date to our favorite steak house – an old leather and wood most delicious food on Earth place here in San Diego called The Butcher Shop. They have the best food on the planet and it was so nice to have a cute lol date before heading out of town!
This Style Me September Challenge has become a yearly tradition! This is the 3rd year I’ve participated so thank you to G, Tash, Mckenna, Kaitlin, Josalyn, Michelle, Erica, my family and coworkers who helped me capture these 30 looks in 30 days! It was such an incredibly fun challenge!! I’m already looking forward to next year’s challenge!
In this week’s Dressing Room Dilemma xx Falling for Nordstrom Rack I’m sharing my favorite picks for fall blouses, denim and pretty skirts for fall.
