The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Halloween Costumes

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always been a bit lazy when it comes to Halloween costumes. Sure, I’d love to channel my inner Martha Stewart and spend weeks concocting some clever show stealer, but I’m rather craft-challenged and never seem to find the time. If you’re looking for some simple, foolproof costume ideas, today is your lucky day. Below, explore some of my favorite fun (dare I even say “chic”!) Halloween ensembles. Some of the pieces you’ll actually wear again! READ POST

The Daily Hunt / Life Update / Weekend Sales

Ruffled Dress, $80

Friday is here at last. I hope, despite the heartbreak of Las Vegas (get involved in the fight for gun control here, here, and here), you’re all safe and doing okay. We found out on Tuesday that our fifth round of IVF has also failed, but I’ve been plodding on. We’ll try yet another frozen embryo in a few weeks. Quite frankly, I’m trying not to think too much about it because when I do I fall apart. I always took for granted that I’d become a mother and that raising children would be my greatest achievement. Now I feel like my very life purpose is in question. I’ve tried to remain so optimistic throughout our infertility journey, but right now, the future just seems very dark. Hoping I’ll feel better soon. If you’re struggling lately too, please know I’m sending you a huge hug. Moving along to lighter/happier matters, there are tons of great sales going on this weekend. World Market is offering 30% off sitwide with code FAMFRIENDS. Serena & Lily is offering 20% off sitewide with code HAPPYDAYS. J.Crew is offering 30% off your purchase with code GOSHOP. Ann Taylor is offering 50% off sitewide with code FALLFAST. Loft is offering 40% off everything with code FALLFEST. Pottery BarnWilliams-Sonoma, and West Elm are all offering 20% off sitewide with code FRIENDS. I hope you all have a lovely weekend. I’m sure I’ll be popping in with some posts. This blog is my little refuge of happy, beautiful things and I need it right now more than ever.
