Happy Halloween from Lula LaShonda

Happy Halloween to all of you from Lula LaShonda!!  #threelegsandfabulous

She usually reverts to the same witch Halloween costume, but it looks so good on her why mess with a good thing?

Have a fabulous and safe holiday - I'm typing this with a mouthful of Snickers...but it's bite-size so it's like, not even real candy, right?  Good thing I have this guide to help me match my vino to my candy - thanks for sending, Mom!

I've always loved the J.Crew preppy look on others, but it just doesn't feel "me."  I don't really know how exactly to describe my style - feminine while still a little edgy, classic meets trendy, or as my husband would say (literally I just asked him), "baggy."

This is about as preppy as I get, but I really love the way this outfit turned out.  I was playing in my closet and wanted to pair these killer pants with a sweater, but just the cashmere sweater with the pants just wasn't enough.  It needed a little something else - enter the classic button down.  

And let's be honest, anything looks great next to this personalized python tote.  Love at first sight!

Wednesday Wish List

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11

Christian and I are heading to Big Bear for our second wedding anniversary next weekend and I am so excited!  We plan to take Bailey and the Jeep along for a weekend in the mountains and can't wait to be surrounded by trees, crisp air and lots of beautiful hikes.

I'm pumped to bring out some of my Mississippi goodies that I don't really need so much in Orange County, like my Hunter boots, some cozy vests, leg warmers and lots and lots of warm scarves.  Bring on the chilly weather!  Do you have some favorite items you always pack when you go away for a cozy weekend?  I'd love to hear.

Transitional Fall

While we were in Mississippi, we met my brother-in-law downtown for lunch.  He told us to check out Farish Street on our way home and while a little scary considering it is  mostly deserted was also really neat to check out some of the old architecture, like the brick wall with the Coca Cola logo.

I did my best to dress for fall while still staying cool (those who know me well know I strongly dislike sweating and I'm easily hot - call me the Ice Queen), and this was my best "transitional fall" look, layering a vest over a summer maxi.  Y'all know I love my maxis and I think layering them is a great way to get through those in-between summer and fall days.
