they call me spooky.

 For my fellow X-Files fans, you'll get why this post title goes with this outfit!

Photos by my husband.






What I'm wearing:
Sweater: secondhand
Blouse: Target
Skirt: ThredUP
Tights: Target
Boots: Steve Madden, gift

This was one of those rare outfits where it actually turned out exactly how I planned, and look how I pictured it. A couple months ago, one of my friends was looking to rehome this sweatshirt and I jumped on it because it's such a perfect nerdy understatement. And how cute is this little stack of cat pumpkins pin?! And yes, I will be wearing these boots with all of my Halloween-related outfits.

the craft realness.

 When my husband saw this outfit he described it as "The Craft realness" and I was excited because that's basically what I was going for (or casual witchy).







What I'm wearing:
Dress (worn as skirt): Pact, old
Top: Urban Outfitters via ThredUP
Tights: Target
Collar Pins: Dapper & Swag
Boots: Steve Madden (gift, old)
Belt: eBay, old

These sleeves are dramaaaaatic. I had to take a few photos to show the volume of the sleeves—it takes 'batwing' to a whole new level. I plan on layering this top over a few things, but it's a little tricky because it's a bit long and oversized. But it was a good ThredUP score and certainly seasonally appropriate.

Stay tuned for a few more Halloween outfits!

holographic.

 This is my first Tilly & the Buttons Lotta dress, and it's one of my favorite makes of late!

Photos by my husband.








What I'm wearing:
Dress: made by me, Lotta pattern, fabric from JoAnn's
Boots: DSW
Earrings: Target, old
Lipstick: Winky Lux

This dress was super easy to make and really comfortable and easy to wear. I love how simple Tilly & the Button's instructions are for every pattern. I'm definitely going to be making a lot of Lottas, since you can use knit and woven fabrics! This one is a cotton jersey that I impulse bought at JoAnn's once—holographic moons and stars, and Halloween right around the corner? Sign me up. But I'll definitely be wearing this year round.

I also love how these photos turned out—I'm getting a little better at smiling and it looking like an actual smile instead of a grimace!

on the grid.

 This dress was actually the first I ever made, but it was way too warm to wear it until now!

Photos by my husband.







What I'm wearing:
Dress: Tilly & the Buttons Stevie pattern, brushed cotton from JoAnn Fabrics
Jacket: Old Navy
Boots: DSW

I was so excited to finally wear this dress, and I absolutely love the feel of this brushed cotton. I know I'll be getting a lot of wear out of this as it gets colder! Also, the Stevie is one of my favorite patterns—highly recommend for beginners!

don't blink.

 A simple jeans & t-shirt outfit, but featuring a t-shirt I made!

Photos by my husband.





What I'm wearing:
T-Shirt: Made by me, modified Seamwork Rory
Jeans: Old Navy
Boots: DSW
Necklace: Loft, old

I snagged a little more than a yard of this fabric from the Finch Studio sidewalk sale, and honestly was a little afraid to use it because I love it so much. I used the Rory pattern for the most part, but didn't do the bottom band or tie, and didn't turn the neckband under. It was a really fast project and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out! Obviously, I have a thing for eye prints lately 👀
