First Friday of November and I managed a TGIF post- this bodes well for the rest of the month. It’s going to be a crazy time leading up to the holidizzles, but an exciting one! We have our cake tasting this month, we’re seeing Iliza again, Thanksgiving, another wedding… all good things!

Lately on The CaroLøve:

If you’re a Stranger Things fan, I really hope you’re following this twitter account.

No idea how I started following Alissa but I love her posts! How cute is her bar cart?

Speaking of prettiness for homes- woof. West Elm. You’ve outdone yourself with this duvet cover! One day, when I have a guest room, it’ll be pink.

In my perusal of Amazon where I just have a never-ending wish list that I rarely actually buy from- I found a Millennial Pink list. I have lots of thoughts about this which I will put in a whole other post but I’m just super loving this color.

I finally jumped on the loafer slide train with the Siena Haircalf Bow Loafer Slides. I got mine half off free but that’s a story for another time when I can get my life together and do an outfit shoot.

I <3 Hocus Pocus as much as the next witch, but what if it isn’t really a good movie? via Entertainment Weekly

Have a great weekend!

As much as I love playing with color and fun accessories, I realized that my style has matured in the past year or so. Yes, I still love Loft, but recently, I’ve been all about Ann Taylor. They’ve had some killer sales and I see no problem paying for pieces that I know will hold up, both in quality and in style. I normally go with dresses, but having some great solid pieces that I can mix + match is important too. I’m kind of shocked at the fact that I just got the items in this post a couple weeks ago and they’re already gone from the Ann Taylor site, but I guess that’s just how retail is. I linked similar pieces below!

Pause for a sec- didn’t realize that you couldn’t tell the skirt I’m wearing is actually a great green. I’m still learning my camera, and my sweet boyfriend actually took these pictures for me. Lesson learned- use the flash? Or something. Blogging is a learning experience. Thank you Kendall for indulging me in taking these! x0x0

The bag was kind of a whole situation to get. I finally bit the bullet and ordered it, since I’d been eyeing a customized Roll-Up Bag for forever. There was a huge price drop, so I went for it! I figured since this was a company started in Georgetown, I should rep the city and designed my bad with a cherry blossom stamp. At the same time, I also ordered the Mini Wings Bag as presents for Kendall + my friend Tiffany. Everything came in looking wonderful, but my bag didn’t have the cherry blossom stamp. It had this other chevron-type pattern that I was way less excited about. None of the email addresses I had for the company worked, so I reached out to their (old) PR reps who put me in contact with the owners. I had my new bag within the week, and have been using it ever since. I don’t have to tell you the company that these bags remind me of, but I adore that my bag is personalized just for me. 🙂

I think a few of you know this but my main photog is a very sweet coworker. I just send her an email request for a meeting and we take a little break in the afternoon to go shoot. It works out really well because I work right near City Center and it’s perfect for pics. It also gives Alex and I a time to chat, maybe vent, and get some fresh air. Win, win right? As we were walking across the street to our favorite picture spot, I was telling Alex that my outfit made me feel so ladylike and I had this song stuck in my head. Even when I’m feeling ladylike it’s like POP PUNK FOREVER.

I talked a little bit before about how I was going to really showcase some of my older pieces because I love them and I wear them. When I first started at the firm, a male, fashion-forward paralegal and I were discussing my style. He kind of pinpointed it as business casual Zooey Deschanel- feminine and a little quirky. This bow sweater was one of my first purchases for work once I got a hang of dressing for my office. I wear it pretty constantly in the fall/ winter. It goes with everything and honestly if you want to add a bit of personality to your sweater collection a bow is a great place to start. This one is like 3 years old, so I linked some other adorable bow sweaters below!
