Fall Colors Dress + Faux Leather Jacket

Dress: Jack by BB Dakota | Faux Leather Jacket: H&M (similar) | Booties: Kelly & Katie (similar) | Bag: Kate Spade | Ring: Meredith Kahn for mark. (similar

Guess who woke up this morning before 6 a.m. to make Jell-O shots? This girl. I’m making candy corn Jell-O shots for a party tomorrow night but it requires waiting for each layer to set before adding the next. With a full-time job and having a life—or so I like to think—and getting my beauty sleep, I don’t have time to sit around for Jell-O to set. Hence, waking up before sunrise to make shots. That is commitment.

Anyway, as I was going through my closet this week trying to figure out an outfit to post, I came across this cool, multi-colored patterned dress from BB Dakota. I had picked it up last year sometime through Hautelook and thought the colors would be perfect for Halloween week! Paired with a shorter faux leather jacket (I am loving cropped jackets with dresses this season!), and my favorite pair of black booties, this outfit was made.

For the budget babes, this dress is a sweet deal currently under $30— get on that!

Good HUES-Day: Dark Nail Polish for Fall

I am the absolute worst with my nails. I never get salon manis (I probably should) and I smudge my nails minutes after painting them. Oops! Even though I’m not the best nail painter, I still love to do so and try new colors—especially dark ones for fall. Try one of these dark & bold shades on your nails at your next mani!

10 Cute Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

One of my favorite Halloween traditions is carving pumpkins with my family, or sometimes just my boyfriend.

If you're like me and NOT a carving master, here's a few other cute pumpkin decorating ideas:
