What I'm Loving October 2016

Solange - A Seat At The Table: A lot of people have been talking about Solange's new album A Seat At The Table all month. I've been listening to it for weeks now, and I'm really diggin' the vibe. It might sound silly, but I'm actually surprised at how much she sounds like Beyonce (that is, when Beyonce does her more mellow tunes). But Solange's sound truly stands out and separates her from her sister. It makes sense that many of the songs were co-written by Raphael Saadiq (remember him from Tony! Toni! Tone! or maybe on Luke Cage?) as they have that soulful vibe. On her album, my favorite song is Don't Wish Me Well (a very Tron/'80s vibe), followed by Junie, Borderline and Rise. But the interludes are just as important as the songs and the album's overall message, especially during these troubling times in America. So apropos!

Clear Heel Boots: I think I saw a few of my blogger friends wearing some clear heel boots back in the spring. I always thought that those are really cool, but probably not for me. I seriously didn't think I could pull off the look. But now that I've started to see them more and more -- and the fact that it is boot season -- I'll have to give this trend a shot. What I love so much about about the ones that I linked, in particular, is that the black boots have clear see-through heels; the gray boots have pink see-through heels and the nude/blush boots have gold see-through heels.

Floral Bomber Jackets: To be honest, I've wanted a floral bomber jacket for months! I mentioned them back in my September Style Fall, but I really wanted to get my hands on one back in the summer. Now that fall is here, I think it's time I bite the bullet and just buy one already. There are so many beautiful ones around and that's making the decision quite hard for me (#thestruggle). Do I want a dark one or a colorful one? Do I want a lot of flowers or just a little embroidery? This lilac floral bomber jacket is pretty fab, isn't it? And it's only $18!

Ready Player One: In 2044, the world is a dystopia. Most people escape the real world by logging on and living in a virtual reality world known as the OASIS. The OASIS is filled with puzzles, video games and pop culture references of the 1980s that form clues. And the first person to put all the clues together and win the game could end up becoming the richest person in a world where that kind of power puts a massive target on your back. So, are you ready, player one?

Fall is in the air, PSLs are everywhere! What are you loving in October?
