I mentioned it a few weeks ago concerning chartreuse green, but I seriously feel like green is about to have a major moment in fashion and design in general. Call this olive green, moss green or army green, but no matter the name it’s seemingly everywhere at the moment. I love how this typically tough, more masculine color seems to be going softer and more feminine. Like this pencil skirt. I’m digging that the rich olive green takes something perfectly classic and transforms it to feel entirely modern and cool. I actually don’t think I own anything this color, but I’m thinking that may just have to change, because I am loving this look for fall and winter!

Happy November, friends! You know what’s about to happen here, right? We’re diving head first into the holiday season! As far as I’m concerned, it’s just about time to bust out my Christmas playlists and start decking the halls. Before we get all crazy with all of that, Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away and this color palette is getting me excited to gather with family and friends to feast in style. Turns out, paprika, hazel, emerald and peacock just look so stunning together! I think this palette would make the loveliest backdrop for Thanksgiving. T-minus 24 days!

So, real life. B and I are not typically the type who dress up for Halloween. You’re much more likely to find us wearing jeans, watching a Halloween movie and pausing it regularly to hand out candy to trick or treaters. This would explain why I’m never the blogger who gets all crazy crafting and sharing Halloween costume ideas. That said, this year we are attending a Halloween party, one where everyone dresses up. Needless to say, as is our way, we’ve kind of dragged our heels for months on this whole costume concept and now we’re up against a time crunch to come up with awesome, easy last minute costumes. Are you in the same boat? Then this post is for you! Liz over at Say Yes is, in my opinion, the queen of awesome Halloween costumes so today I’m sharing five of her amazing couple costumes, most of which you can easily pull off using things you already own with maybe a couple of additions from the thrift store or Halloween shop. Check them out and be sure to get a load of your weekly Friday Link Love. Happy Halloween, friends! Be safe and have fun! xoxo

Speaking of my current pancake obsession, I would be all too happy to have someone make me up a batch of these Halloween pumpkin pancakes tomorrow morning. Or, heck! I’d be down for having them for dinner, too. I don’t care what anyone says. Pancakes shaped like Jack O’Lanterns are my kind of awesome. Drizzle them with a big dose of maple syrup, and I’m pretty sure these make for the only Halloween treat I’d ever need. Pop over to So Haute for the how-to! Trust me, friends, it’s easier than you think.

I’m kind of in shock that tomorrow is Halloween! That said, I’m really really excited. I love handing out candy to trick or treaters so today I’ve rounded up a handful of fun last minute printable Halloween treat bags. The kind sure to make every little ghost and goblin exceedingly happy. Of course these double as great little party favors if you’re planning a shindig this weekend, too. We’re actually attending a party this weekend, but I also fully intend to watch Hocus Pocus at least once in the next couple of days. Best Halloween movie ever.
