Happy Halloween, gorgeous readers!!! I hope y'all had an amazing weekend! So I know I have said before that blanket scarves are part of my fall uniform. Well, I'm here to tell you that oversized sweaters are right up there with blanket scarves on my fall obsession list. Oversized sweaters have it ALL: comfy, cozy, & CUTE (the 3 c's if you will, lol). Sometimes with fashion, I feel like you have to pick between comfort and style (i.e. 6 inch heels aren't the most comfortable); however, this is totally not the case with oversized sweaters which is one of the reasons I love them! Also as the temps drop, these are super cozy & warm--yet another practical reason to love oversized sweater. So why not get the best of both worlds & even pair an oversized sweater with a blanket scarf when the temps drop more?! Plus, these are long enough that you can wear them with tights...another major positive in my book (of fashion lol). 

Also some of my new favorite shoes are these Converse sneakers I just bought from DSW. This white/blue/red combo has been EVERYWHERE this past summer & fall. I'll be honest, I have never bought a pair of Converses before, but as soon as I tried these on, I had to have them (along with another adorable pair, which I will feature soon!). My 2 older brothers always wore Converses while I was growing up and I always thought they were pretty dang cool, so I feel like my cool factor goes up a couple of notches in these shoes ;) And, needless to say, they go with literally EVERYTHING. I love to make a dress more casual by adding some sneakers or "showing them off" if you will by rolling up my jeans as I did in my OOTD above. So many ways to style them! And, bonus, my version above is the "slip on" style so you don't have to worry about tying your shoes (lol...yes I have been known to trip over my untied shoes before. This totally eliminates the problem! Is that embarassing I admitted that??? Anyone else?? haha.....). 

So what do y'all think of the oversized sweater trend?! 

Also, what are y'all doing for Halloween? I'm currently in Nashville for school, so I wasn't able to spend it with my fiancé, Dad & precious nephews like normal. It made me reminisce on Halloween pasts, so I thought I would share some of my fave looks from Halloween over the years!:

Thank you so so much for reading dolls, as always I appreciate you all taking the time to read!! :) 

Happy Halloween and have a great evening!
