If you follow me on Instagram you know that these shoes have been on HEAVY rotation (like 5 days a week heavy - here here here here...) & if you read my Cold Weather Essentials post then you know I'm currently on the market for another pair of slip-ons because I've been wearing these SO much! My life and schedule have been kinda hectic this month and I've been really lazy about getting up and working out in the morning which results in my hitting the snooze two three times then scrambling to get dressed, so this or some variation of it have been what I'm wearing on a day to day basis all October long!

What have you been wearing & re-wearing?

Head over to The Right Shoes for all the details on Tracy's look & check out last month's Go-To post, it's one of my favorites!

East vs. West Style: Fall Beauty

*

My Fall Beauty routine has revolved around bold lips & fun nail art! Bold purple, burnt red, bright pink, wine & fire engine red have all made appearances over the past 2 months and I don't foresee me ditching these favorites anytime soon, especially with the holidays quickly approaching!

As for my nails, I'm all about spending a little extra time on them this season to get that perfect eye catching manicure! In the summer I feel like I'm always on the go & want to spend as much time as possible hanging by the pool & doing outdoor activities so my nail art game was seriously slacking, but now with the temps dropping and it getting dark a little earlier I'm finding a little more time for fun manicures! This one was super easy to create & I hope you'll try it out for yourself! All I did was paint my nails a bright red/magenta color, and once it was dry I taped off the area I wanted to keep that color and painted the rest a matte black! For fun I added a strip of holographic silver nail tape! Follow my nail art pinterest board for more inspiration!

When highlighting my favorite Fall Beauty Trends I knew I had to keep my outfit pretty simple. White blouse, black midi skirt & burgundy pumps, but to draw attention to my mani I added a fun sequin clutch to the mix!

This may be the last East vs. West post of our Fall Series, but check back in December when we'll be styling for the Holidays!!

Halloween Nails | Candy Corn

Last, but not least, my final Halloween manicure of the year!! I hinted that this mani was coming Saturday morning on Instagram and couldn't wait until later in the week to share it, so this week Makeup Monday is becoming Manicure Monday! This manicure is MUCH easier to do that you think - all you need is a little bit of time, some patience and a lot of tape!
  1. Paint your nails white & let them dry (or use a quick dry top coat like Seche Vite)
  2. Tape off the portion of your nail you want to keep white and paint the rest orange, then let them dry
  3. Then tape off the portion you want to keep white and orange and paint the remaining area yellow!
  4. Then for a little something extra I sealed the manicure with a clear top coat & dusted white, orange and yellow loose glitter on top of each stripe!

Super super easy & you have plenty of time to recreate this on yourself before Friday!! If you do make sure to send me a pic!!

Cold Weather Essentials

While we haven't quite hit "cold weather" standards in New York yet, you can definitely start to feel that chill in the air & now is the time to start thinking about those cold weather essentials you want to add to your wardrobe to get you through the ((hopefully not as brutal as last year) winter!! Year after year I try to put off my winter shopping until the very last minute because I'm in denial about the fact that it's going to start snowing, and I immediately regret it because everything I was dying to have was sold out!!! That's NOT happening this year!! Here are the 6 essentials I'm absolutely adding to my closet + a couple things I'm lusting after!
Cold Weather Essentials | #LivingAfterMidnite

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 15 / 16 / 17 / 18 / 19

The Fur Scarf - I've had a faux fur collar for a few years that I pretty much add to every single outfit in the winter, so I figured it was time to add another! Piperlime just released these awesome fur scarves just as I was starting to look and the idea of another collar is out of my head & the only dilemma I'm having is tan or blue scarf?

The Everyday Satchel - I know this isn't technically a "cold weather" essential, but there's nothing better than finding that perfect carry all purse that's the perfect size & perfect color & goes with everything in you seasonal closet...so that's why it's on this list. And these bags are ah-maz-ing ((& super inexpensive!))

The Leather Bootie - I finally did the big switch of summer & winter clothes a couple of weekends ago and I realized that I don't have ANY leather everyday booties! ALL of my low heeled, walk around all day booties are suede, and lets be serious suede in the snow slush is a big no-no!

The Blanket Coat - This is probably the most trendy item on this list, and probably not an essential for everyone, but this year it's a must have for me! I'm not really into the whole blanket scarf trend that everyone and their mother is obsessed with, but blanket coats....a whole other story!!! It's like getting away with wearing the softest, warmest blanket you own around all day...who wouldn't love that!

The Slip On Sneaker - I've been wearing my leopard slip-on sneakers pretty much every other day since they arrived at my front door and I need another pair (or two) immediately before I get a hole in my current pair!

The Winter Coat - Living in the Northeast a warm really warm coat is a must!! I try to purchase a new one every year so I've grown quite the collection! While I'm gravitating towards something red, I can't stop thinking about these plaid & cream wrap coats...maybe this year calls for 2 new coats!

Also on the shopping list - a new fur vest, OTK flat boots & these favorites that aren't quite essentials but I just couldn't leave them out!

This is the third neutral outfit on the blog this week, but if these 3 looks don't make you forget the phrase "neutral is boring," than I don't know what will! I never thought I was the girl to gravitate towards browns, blacks & grays, but when leopard print, fur & gold hardware are involved all bets are off! ((PS is it just me or does my mouth look unusually large in these pics?? I guess I was either really happy or laughing at something during these!))
