Weekend Steals & Must Have Fall Plaid Scarves

Happy almost Halloween Friday friends!  We've got a first grade classroom party to attend today and it should be loads of fun seeing those kiddos all dressed up in their costumes! James is Texans football player JJ Watt, and Jordan will be Snow White. I even found her these adorable red glittery shoes (they seemed to run big- the 3-6 month size fit her perfectly, and she's 8 months) to go with it! I'm not dressing in costume, but I did pick up this skull tank top at a recent Target run and will call that good!

Today, I'm sharing my favorite way to add interest to your fall outfits - by simply adding a colorful, patterned scarf.  I look at my closet and see so much tan and white and black and grey, which I'm naturally drawn to, but I also like adding color here and there.  If you're like me, an easy way to dip your toe into the color pool is to add a scarf in colors you like.  You can find so many pretty scarves for under $25, so it's not a huge investment to stock up on a few you'll wear often.  I linked some gorgeous ones at the end of this post for you.

First, I'll show you a pretty Fall blanket scarf that you can wear many ways, (see 3 Ways to Wear Your Scarf here), but to show off the shoulders of this orange cold shoulder sweater, I wore it looped around my neck with the ends hanging down.

Still shows off that little bit of skin while keeping you toasty.

Here's a better look at the cold shoulder sweater without the scarf and just a necklace.  Of course I liked it so much, I also got it in grey/white stripe. #greyismyfavoritecolor

But isn't it cute with the scarf?

You remember these leg-lengthening bootcut jeans I shared a few weeks ago?  Not only do they give the illusion of more height, they are super soft and comfy.  They run big, so you may need to size down.  I'm wearing 0P.  And they're under $90! 

To make the most of the leg-lengthening effect, wear a top you can tuck in.  See here for example.

I'm really glad that this scarf came back in stock- I've had mine for two years, and have gotten so much use out of it.  You can also incorporate a blanket scarf like this into your Fall decor by layering it over the back or arm of your couch, nestling it in a woven basket, or place it on your table as a tablecloth. 

For an infinity style scarf, this one has been a big hit.  My v-neck sweater has been on repeat lately, with just switching up the jeans, boots, and scarf.  It's a roomy fit, and I'm wearing XS.

Sweater | Ripped Jeans $45 (Similar Here $64) | Peep Toe Booties | Bag | Infinity Scarf | Similar Earrings | Sunglasses

I love how the pretty colors in this scarf add instant life to an otherwise neutral outfit. 

Have you gotten a pair of peep toe booties yet?! I swear, I'm living in mine lately! 

My blingy statement necklace came in my latest Rocksbox (you can get your first month free with my code HONEYWEREHOMEXOXO).  It's a fun way to get to change out your jewelry each month without committing to buying unless you really love a piece you want to keep.  The earrings (similar) were in that Rocksbox too! #definitekeepers

I keep watching for this bag to go on sale again so I can let you know.  It's perfect for an organizing fanatic like myself because it has separate compartments to keep everything in it's place. It also comes in black, dark green and plum and all are really pretty. 

As promised, below are several scarves guaranteed to perk up your outfit! And when in doubt, just go with leopard!

Cozy Sweater & Soft Boots

What are your go-to winter boots?  Now that we've gotten a taste of cooler temps, I'm all in sharing some cozy, cozy looks with the cozy of the coziest boots.  Weather permitting, I love to run around in my soft boots.  They keep your feet super warm even on the coldest days and are always so comfy.

Fall Dining Room Decor

Here's to a fresh, new week! This weekend, we went to a fun pumpkin patch with pony rides, a haunted trail, petting zoo and face painting and even managed to get a family photo with everyone in it!  That never happens!  It's been challenging to get stuff done around here with having to watch our baby so closely.  She's everywhere and at that stage where she has no fear and can easily get hurt.   I'm always on high alert and her energy seriously wears me out! That's life with a baby for ya! At home, I did manage to put the finishing touches on our Fall dining room and even got it photographed for ya!

White Jeans After Labor Day | Weekend Steals

Now it's legit!  Temps in the 50s this morning! Woo-hoo! I'm not sure how long this will last- but we're sure soaking it in today!  I've got lots on my to-do list and some home decor posts to share with you soon!  We've made big progress on the nursery bathroom, our living room (see InstaStories) and also our Fall dining room.  I'm going to photograph that this weekend and share it with you Monday! You can see last year's here.

Today, I've got lots of Weekend Steals to share with you! First up, if you're not quite ready to give up your white jeans, I have a great neutral look for you! You can (and I do!) wear white jeans year round.  That old rule 'no white after Labor Day' is out the window.  My favorite white jeans are by AG but they're pricey and rarely go on sale.  I love them because they fit like a real jean (98% cotton) and not a jegging like so many white jeans, so they fit really nice and smooth.

I searched and found two more pairs of white jeans with 99% cotton and 1% spandex that are great for the budget this pair for $69 and this pair for $79.

Faux Leather Spanx Leggings

Oh hallelujah!  Houston got the memo and now is just showing off with temps getting in the 50s tonight!  And perfect timing because I have a fun post for you today- something a little out of my comfort zone, but worth giving a try - faux leather leggings.  But not just any faux leather leggings, these are by Spanx and we all know how I'm a fan of those

How To Dress for Fall When it's Hot Outside

Oh man, this is so our dilemma here in Houston and maybe yours too if you live in a climate that inconveniently forgets to realize that it's FALL already!! Hello! We're in late October, Houston - did you miss the memo?!?! #rude We want to wear boots and sweaters and scarves and all.things.fall while drinking our pumpkin spice lattes!!!! Actually, make mine a white mocha. ;)

We'll show you, weather!  We're not gonna let a little thing like 80 degree temperatures stop us from wearing the clothes we've been politely and patiently waiting to wear since the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale back in July! #somuchgoodness

BH&G Stylemaker Recap

How was your weekend friends?  Ours have been packed lately with sports but we did have a nice relaxing Sunday and I got lots done around the house.  On Saturday, in between soccer and baseball games, my girlfriend and I took a quick trip down to Galveston for my trainer's bodybuilding show. As luck would have it, we arrived while the show was at a break, but we took advantage of being at the beach and had lunch on the patio at The Spot, dug our feet into the sand, and browsed some local shops before heading home.  I couldn't stop smiling the whole time we were there.  It felt like a mini-vacation with my best girlfriend.
