What I'm Loving in October

10/18/2013


I've been getting more than my fair share of Snapple this month. I can't help that it's so readily available, but I try to switch it up a bit. I get Mango Madness for the taste and Green Tea when I want to not feel so bad and convince myself that I'm being healthy. Plus, I learn so much just by reading the caps. Where else would I have found out that a group of goats is called a trip?

Hello fashion inspiration Gwen Stefani! This look is actually from a year ago, but I stumbled across it back on her birthday on Oct. 3. Sidenote: Can you believe this broad is 44? She is a total Betty! Anyhoo, I know plaid is all the rage now, but I don't feel comfortable in colorful squares, so I'd rather go with this black and white tartan style. Someone please let me know where I can get a dupe version of Gwen's pants.

Dexter and Breaking Bad might be over, but do you know what October means? The return of The Walking Dead Sundays and Scandal Thursdays. There's nothing better than some zombie gore and fast-talking government betrayal. Am I right?

After I found an awesome Helmut Lang dress that I wore to iFabbo (post coming soon), I've been all over this designer this month. This slouchy suit jacket would look so haute with a pair of Polo Ralph Lauren white shorts. Note: Now I just need some white shorts. White shorts are sort of like the devil to me, so I'd have to be very careful and make sure I buy the right pair.

So if you follow me on Twitter (and you should) then you might have remembered when I tweeted in September that TJ Maxx has officially launched an online store. Yes, that's right! Now we can all be maxxinistas online as well as in store. You can shop a good amount of TJ Maxx items online for women, including clothes, shoes and bags. Unfortunately, they haven't opened the door to men's items or home goods just yet. But hopefully that will happen some time in the near future.

What are you loving this October? I ask because I really do want to know.

  2. I've not had Snapple in years!! I used to get it after gym class from the vending machine. Loved that stuff. And Gwen always looks amazing, loved her since highschool as well. I wouldn't mind her trousers either. That top will look great on you. I like b&w designs. Yes yes, I am ready for The Walking Dead too...it's a favourite in this house. I've never seen the other one, I'll have to look it up. Online shopping is always great, avoid the crowds and people trying to swipe what you have, haha. I hope you have a great weekend doll :) x
