power colors.

I don’t remember how it came to be, but my high school best friend and I once declared turquoise and purple to be our power colors and somehow it just stuck.  At debate competitions (nerd alert) she wore a turquoise blouse with turquoise pumps and I wore a similar purple ensemble.  We thought we were pretty badass and to this day, this color combo still brings a smile to my face.  We were definitely onto something because this jeweled-toned pairing is boldly perfect no matter the season.

pumpkin hunting.

Although I didn’t have time to make it out to the pumpkin patch this year, I did find an alternative closer to home.  Surprisingly, Trader Joe’s had a decent selection of pumpkins and gourds galore.

The options ranged from miniature to fairytale shaped (think Cinderella’s carriage), to “ugly” (or should I say … unique?).

One of my personal faves were the pumpkin branches.  Festive, miniature and adorable.  What more could you ask for?

In the end, I scooped up a typical carving pumpkin for only $2.99 and a special treat to boot.  I’ll be attempting to carve the little guy tonight so stay tuned for the final result!

step on it.

I’m slowly coming to terms with the fact that it’s time to put the flip flops away.  Just kidding.  I live in AZ, so it’ll be another month until it’s really time.  Still, I can’t wait to get my hands on a hearty fall shoe.  My favorites include wedges, loafers, and stacked heels.
