Belated October Favorites

I’ll be honest - I don’t write much here anymore. I was doing round up posts of things I’ve been loving lately, but I wasn’t even sure if people were even reading those. I thought that maybe no one cared. Well turns out I was wrong! Today I had two separate friends text me telling me that they miss seeing my style posts. So I’m here to remedy that. Here’s a belated list of October favorites.

Vampy lips

One of my favorite favorite fall trends is a dark lip. While I shy away from wearing black, blue, or anything too cool, a lovely dark dark berry is my preferred lip color for the fall. I like to balance out the lower part of my face by darkening my eyebrows. I feel like this keeps me from looking washed out. I’ve linked to some of my favorite dark lipsticks in a variety of budgets.

Sporty Casual Sneakers

In my last post of monthly favorites, I shared my newfound love of Spanx Leggings. They are worth every penny and they hold everything in! You can still breathe and eat in them. They’re basically perfect. What I’ve been to find are shoes that work well with them. Booties work, but sometimes I want a more casual look. I’ve been searching for some sporty casual (is that a thing?) sneakers that aren’t Stan Smiths - because we’re not all Pam Beasley, amiright?


Glam Holiday Style

I feel like most (all?) of you know that fall and winter are my favorite seasons. I love the jewel tones, richer colors, and cooler weather. It’s also usually the one time of the year that I can dress up a bit. Unfortunately my only occasion to dress up (Hubs’ work holiday party) has been a family-friendly affair since last year. While I’m glad to do something fun and festive with the kids, I really miss getting dressed up! If I were going somewhere fancy this year, you’d find me in either sequins, velvet, jewel tones, or brocade. Actually, you’d probably find me in the emerald green jumpsuit that’s the first linked image - and it’s breastfeeding friendly!
