Happy Halloween my friends (or family if you are reading)! What are your plans tonight? We are taking our kids around the neighborhood for Trick-or-Treat. We have had our fill of fall festivals and Halloween celebrations over the weekend and it feels like we will never recover but it’s fun nonetheless. For today’s outfit I am bringing you another skull scarf as my last post “2 Ways to Style a Skull Scarf” was such a fun inspiration for many that read it.

2 Ways to Style a Skull Scarf

2-ways-to-style-skull-scarf

Halloween and all things fall are in the air. This past weekend we took the little ones to Layman’s Farm where they had fun with the corn mazes, jumping pillows, cow car rides, petting zoo and more. We didn’t pick a pumpkin at this particular farm, but the kids had fun none-the-less. By the time the farm closed for the evening we were wiped out, as you can imagine.

Speaking of fall and Halloween I wanted to share with you one of my skull scarves that was gifted to me last year from a good blogging friend named Whitney. Now I mentioned it was given to me last year, but up until now I have not known how to style it. Alexander McQueen is famous for putting out fabulous skull scarves, see here and here but you don’t need to go expensive to get your own. Below are affordable priced ones.  With Halloween being Monday I thought I would pull it out and give mine a wear and today I am sharing with you two ways to style it. It’s actually as easy as 1..2..3.

Lucked out

Happy Hump Day! I normally don’t post on Wednesdays but I couldn’t help but show off yesterdays green outfit, because since blogging I actually care to wear green on St. Patricks day. Before blogging I almost cared less if I wore even just a hint of green. I even have a lot of Irish in me, what is wrong with me!?!  Here is what I wore last St. Patricks Day.

My day started out great and with the busyness of taking care of toddlers I misplaced my phone so I looked all over the place and even asked my two in a half year old son Xander where it might be. He started looking in a few of his boots and said the phone was in them, but no luck.  Since it was nearing nap time I disregarded the phone and actually took a nice pleasant uninterrupted by the phone nap while the kiddos did. Then when I woke up I searched some more and remembered the “Find iPhone” app on my icloud account so I did this from my laptop and found the phone- in a boot near the basement door. How lucky am I to have such a handy finding device? How awesome is my son for trying to tell me it was in a boot? and he was right for the most part, just not in the boots we were searching in.

I had a hard time thinking and even finding a green item in my wardrobe when I remembered this lovely top that was gifted to me from my mom (even though the color seems more blue to me depending on the lighting).It is a Michael Michael Kors, I might add. This top still had the original MMK price tag (originally $89.50) but the top also had a Stein Mart tag and it had been reduced to $19.99 due to beading on the front coming loose or off. Because I didn’t know how to wear the top with missing beads in the front I thought last minute that adding a light grey metalic scarf would work perfectly to hide the imperfections and viola that and adding leopard print flats and my new black skinny jeans, the look worked like a charm.

Speaking of charm I added my “Gems” bracelet from My Arm Charms to add another element and hint of green and gold tone to the look.

I got lucky enough that my hubby let me run out and get some Starbucks and while I was away I managed to steal away to a neighborhood park and take these pictures. It was just a lovely breezy weather kind of day and while rain seemed to be on our horizon no rain came. I call that luck right there.
