October Fever . . .

Hello Loves,
So this whole weekend was amazing! I finally had 3 days off from work & I spent the entire weekend relaxing and spending time with my family and friends! As October came to an end this weekend I had plenty of events to dress up for! First off, I got these amazing cupcakes delivered to my In-laws for the 25th wedding anniversary! Maria at Thats My Cupcake in Oakville, Ontario made them for me! They are absolutely gorgeous <3! I'm glad my In-laws enjoyed them.. mmmmm
So on Friday I went to lunch with a couple of friends after class.. before we headed out for Halloween costume shopping at Party City. It was a perfect day outside. The weather was just right. A little chilly so I layered a couple of pieces together for a very casual, comfy but stylish day out!
Linen White Blazer is from Forever21
The Navy blue striped tee is from Hollister
The Pants are from Banana Republic
Boots are from Charlotte Russe
Watch is from Michael Kors
Handbag is LV
... Hope you guys enjoyed that look!

Also, I had a little fun for Halloween and dressed up as Genie. I really really wanted to be Princess Jasmine but since I'm in a long distance relationship and my fiance lives in Canada.. I chose a different costume. I really wanted him to be Aladdin & I'd be princess Jas.. but theres always next yearr! So for the makeup I did a dark Arabic eye look that I'm obsessed with recently! I always do dark eyes and my signature nude lip.. If you guys would like a tutorial, let me know! I'm no professional though haha.
And here is my costume... 
By the end of the night we came to a conclusion that I was a Genie Barbie <3

Soooo let me know what you think!

Fall is hereeee!

Fall is here! Finally I can whip out my boots and not look dumb wearing them around in the warm Texas weather! What a gorgeous picture of the trees changing colors in Toronto! My Father-in-law sent me that lovely picture to show me how the trees change colors and everything looks so magical!! Today was most def. a preview day of what winter will be like here. The rain had brought about a whimsical cold front and with that came out the boots, scarves and winter coats!!! I spent the entire day today on campus, just working on an assignment and walking around campus. The weather was amazing, I loved how it was cold and windy with a drizzle of rain. All I was missing was my fiance holding my hand and a Starbucks Vanilla Latte in the other...I think it's supposed to be warm again tomorrow, so the layering and boots were def. a one day stand till the cold weather shows up again.  I'll put up a picture of my outfit of the day! I lost my memory card for my camera, so the iphone pics will have to do for now.. :)
The Blazer is from: Forever21
The Sweater is from: American Eagle
The pants are from: Banana Republic (ILOVETHESE)
The Boots are: INC by Macy's
The scarf is a Vintage piece that belongs to my mom!

Happy Layering Dolls!
