Getting Into The Holiday Spirit

The Halloween spirit that is!
The holiday season is in full swing in my apartment. I live in an itty bitty top floor apartment, so decorating hasn't happened just yet, but I have been indulging in some other ways.

I bought myself these amazing Halloween flats a week or so ago and they finally arrived! I still need to break them in, but I love them despite the blisters. They add the perfect little festive touch to a simple outfit and they are taking the place of my old black flats which were a bit of a wreck.

I love to cook (you guys know that right? I DO have a cooking blog after all), and this cute new spooky apron is the best. I can be a messy cook so it's nice to have somethign to keep my clothes clean that is still nice looking. Bonus- I get to feel like a little witch stirring a cauldron when I'm cooking.

And it wouldn't be Halloween without cider and scary movies! This cinnamon hard cider is really tasty and is the perfect thing to sip when curled up in a blanket, watching vampires. I still hadn't gotten a chance to see Only Lovers Left Alive so I was happy to see it available at redbox. Made for a great night in with the Husbando.

Video Spotlight- Welcome to Hell + bonus fanart

So this past week I got really into this youtube cartoon, Welcome To Hell. It's a short cartoon about a demon kid named Sock, and the human he is tasked with tormenting, Jonathan. In fact I got so into it, I even made a little fan art doodle to give myself a break form my regular classwork/serious art.

Fall Fashion Finds Buys

Fall is here and that means fall fashion, which is my fave type of fashion. Hello dark colors, spooky details, knits and layers.

I just ordered these trick or treat loafers from ASOS. I couldn't resist the classic shape with such cute details. Bonus, they're gonna make for great, comfortable walking shoes, and the design is sublte enough for every day wear.

Another ASOS Halloween find. I'm not the biggest fan of crop tops or cute prints, but the minimalist palette and simple bat shapes seemed pretty versatile. I can see this with black leggings and a comfy oversized cardigan, or with knit tights and black booties and a moto jacket. 

This jacket is going to keep me warm all winter. Faux suede, faux shearling lining (in black!), oversized moto shape, it has everything I could want. It gets cold in NY so a good coat is important, you wear it most of Fall and then all Winter.

A light jacket is also a good buy. Some Fall days are brisk, but not quite cold enough for a full on heavy coat. This all vegan jacket is the perfect way to deal with autumn winds and chill. Cozy, cute and would look great in my closet.

Anyone else planning some Fall fashion buys?
