Double, Double, Toil and Trouble

This look is a little more…witchy than my usual look, and I’m absolutely loving it. I’m on a total velvet binge right now, and the more in my closet the better. It adds such a fun texture to any outfit and instantly adds some interest to a neutral look (yes, this is a neutral look for me haha).

This past week I have been in a very homemaker mood, for a lack of a better word.

I've been snipping recipes for cookies and sweets to make for Thanksgiving, hunting Pinterest for cute fall DIYs to spruce up the house (if you have any, link them in the comments!), and crafting pretty, lacy invitations to mail out for Thanksgiving dinner. I’m surprised my hair isn't flipped out in a classic Peggy Olson do by now.  Since I’m back home and not living out on my own, I want to make these holidays extra special and super festive, because next year we’ll probably be apart again!  

I’d love to know how you’re getting into that Thanksgiving mood (other than sewing elastic waistbands onto your pants…)- share, and inspire me : )

  2. Oooh love the velvet "witchy look"! I seriously am obsessed with it right now, my post for tomorrow is really witchy too! (I am even wearing a freaking crystal necklace in it!) I saw that you are getting Marisa's dress after me, can't wait to see how you style it. The dress I already have (for tomorrow) is pretty much the same dress with a different floral print I am pretty sure haha. Ooops!
    As for thanksgiving, last year i made paper feather head dresses for all of rob's family to wear (they think I am insane). I have been cooking lots of squash and scrolling through pages of sweets as well :)

  9. Never thought of layering like that but it looks really cool! Can totally understand the velvet thing - I've got a total (strange) obsession for mixing up textures too...

  10. I don't own anything velvet but I kind of want to now :). I wish I was more crafty and into the Thanksgiving spirit! I think I need more time in the day to incorporate that. Maybe one day <3

  14. Fun "witchy" look.

    What a great idea to send out fancy, formal invitations (heh...we might actually be a bit lazy about that and just ask verbally.)
