Must Be The Season Of The Witch

I am ready for Halloween. No, I haven't figured out my costume or made plans or really done anything, but I am still ready. It's my favorite holiday, and once Fall rolls around, my mind gets consumed with costume ideas! ;) So while this outfit isn't a costume, the bow and bell sleeves make me feel a little like a witchy woman (especially with my hair dark now)... thus the post title.

This is only the second week of school, and it's pretty much kicking my butt! Last Saturday, also known as my only day off from school and work, I took three naps... and one of them was on the floor! As a result, I have been just too darn tired to put much effort into my outfits, especially since our heat wave from last week took a dramatic turn towards the brrrr cold/rainy-side of things! The only thing that has been making me dress in anything other than jeans and sweatshirts is T.A.ing, for which I try to at least look somewhat presentable.
Oy Vay... starting to look so pale :(
Dress: Luxe ($10 from CrossRoads secondhand) Shoes: Lucky Brand Shoes ($50 from Macy's) Lace Bandeau Top [worn under dress]: Free People ($20 from Macy's)
Got any costume ideas?


  1. Super cute! And that color is really great! Hah, I actually have a ton of costume ideas, and I'm seriously excited too! And I'm even being silly and trying to keep them hushed up because I actually get to post them on my blog in a few weeks! I don't care if anyone (or everyone even) copies my ideas, I just like the idea of having surprises!! And your dog is being so cute in the pictures too! I hope the T.A.'ing and the rest of school is going well! :)

  2. Love this cute little dress...the tie is so feminine:)
