Fall is playing games with my heart this year. Just when I thought things were finally cooling down, the weather decides to heat back up again to practically summer levels. I guess I shouldn’t complain too much though because it allowed me to wear something that would otherwise be a bit out of season.
Though I consider myself to be a huge fandom nerd I’ve noticed that I prefer making up costumes out of things I already own or I buy things that I can incorporate into regular outfits over buying costumes. I guess it could be considered “subtle representation of fandom.” This was the kind of reasoning that made me buy this dress back in September.
This weekend, not only was I able to get brunch with two of my dearest friends after 8 months apart, but we also got to go pumpkin picking for the first time ever at a local farm. I love this time of year because the colder temperatures let me wear some of my favorite staples like my faux leather jackets but also because I get to eat pumpkin-flavored food. Yes, I know that is totally cliché but whatever, I love pumpkin.
We’ve made it to October so you know what that means, spooky season is officially upon us!When it comes to holiday loungewear and/or pajamas I’ve noticed that it is more popular to buy specifically for the winter holidays like Christmas. Yet as most of us are spending more time at home and traditional Halloween festivities are not really an option, I figured that this may be the year that we look for more cozy spooky-wear to wear at home. So I searched the internet for some and compiled this list for anyone looking for something cute, cozy and spooky to wear while watching their favorite Halloween films on tv for the 31 Nights of Halloween. I also made sure to only include items less than $40 on this list. Happy shopping!

I particularly like the bat design in the middle and can totally see myself wearing that for a zoom call or Netflix Watch Party with my friends because who doesn’t like a good pun? Hahaha.
Autumn is hands down my favorite season. The temperatures finally get cold enough to wear a sweater while enjoying a huge cup of tea with a good book, pumpkin, apple and cinnamon flavors reign supreme once more and I finally get to layer on scarves and jackets that make up my massive collection. Also darker style aesthetics suddenly become more mainstream making it easier to stock up on accessories and new clothes. Yes, we may all still be in quarantine but fall fashion is top of mind for me at the moment, even if it is still too warm for me to start layering.
Yet my “season transition style” this year has been inspired by black’s more colorful cousin, plum purple. This is an Autumn color that doesn’t seem to be as popular as harvest orange, wine red, or mustard yellow, yet I’ve been obsessed with it for years even though I don’t own much of anything in it other than some lipstick. So you can imagine how fast I pounced on this Torrid plaid skirt once I saw it on their site. Continue reading
