Happy Wednesday, lovelies! We’re right at the end of October, and that means… Halloween! I still have no idea what I’ll be wearing as I get into Halloween fun this weekend, but Alena’s costume is picked out. She’s going to be Katniss Everdeen/Th “Mockingjay” from The Hunger Games. Her costume is really cool… it’s amazing how much my 10 year old has grown up… after years of being characters like Tinkerbell, Belle and Elsa… the last couple of years Alena’s “tween side” has been showing. Last year, Alena was a vampire (appealing to her love of Twilight, she’s a twi-hard fan) and this year, she’s appealing to her love of The Hunger Games.
Speaking of Alena, this past Sunday, we went for brunch at a tasty breakfast spot called Nosh located in the Historic Downtown Geneva, Illinois. Alena and I had a date to discuss “mean girls.” As mentioned, Alena is getting to be a tween and with that comes the typical unkindness and gossip from a handful of unhappy, young people. The focus of our conversation around “mean girls” was about putting out positive energy, and the ability to roll things off your back. Alena is such a sweetheart and I’m confident that she will continue putting out goodhearted vibes.
The outfit featured in this post is the look I wore when we were out to brunch. Playing with some new neutral pieces that were recently added to my fall wardrobe, I was determined to wear my grey leggings (they are oh so soft!) and keep my entire look casual, comfortable and effortlessly stylish. Nailed it? I think so…
Tell me some things… Halloween plans? Thoughts on raising a tween and encountering “mean girls?” How about this light and dark look for fall?
With Style & Love,
