Candy Corn

Happy Halloween weekend everyone! If you are like me, you celebrated Halloween this past weekend. Having the normal 8-5 job makes weeknight partying almost impossible. Luckily for me, Nashville had a lot of great options going on. On Friday night I went to a Zombie party in a sweet warehouse space. Steve's band Scale Model entertained the crowd. There was even a professional make-up artist turning regular people into flesh eating monsters.
Saturday included a quick trip to the flea market (thanks Lauren!) and a few hours spent at work. At night Steve and I got dressed up again and went to a friends house party. I always love seeing my friends all dressed up in super creative costumes. On Sunday Steve and I took a nice trip to Percy Warner Park and took a nice fall hike. If you watch the show Nashville, you might recognize this park from last weeks episode. Rayna and her guitarist dude had a deep conversation here. We took these pictures while walking around Percy Warner. PW might be my new favorite park for the sheer number of dogs people bring there. I was stopping every five feet to pet a puppy. I can't wait until I have a little puppy of my own to play with in the leaves.
The weather was perfect. At first I thought I was going to be cold- the forecast said only 55 degrees. When I opened my door to have morning coffee on my back porch I was pleasantly surprised. It was almost hot in the direct sun. I figured this might be the last time I get to pull off tights and shorts this season so I ran with it. Oh, and these tights? I actually picked them up at JoAnn's fabric. They were having a super discount sale on a bunch of random Halloween things- and I'm not one to turn down $2 tights. I feel like the bee girl in these.
 
I was also pretty stoked because on Friday my package from Kelsea Echo arrived. I ordered one of her trick or treat mystery bags during her fundraising effort Help A Heart. I was really impressed with all that she was doing and I wanted to chip in. So happy I did because she raised a lot of money and I got a bunch of really cute jewelry.

Sweater: JCrew, super old
Shorts: Posh (sale)
Tights: JoAnns Fabric and Crafts
Shoes: Puma
Necklace: Kate Spade

  6. What you're wearing is already too cute, but now I can't get the picture out of my mind of you in the entire bee girl outfit! I swear only you could pull it off and look amazing! I love how you always look like you're having so much fun!

    1. I would love to wear the entire bee girl outfit. Not even on Halloween. Just put it on, go bowling, see a movie, buy some groceries!

      It would be even better if I had a little boom box with me that played No Rain on repeat.

    1. Oh thanks! I stalked these shorts for two seasons. They were SO expensive and super out of my price range. But I have patience and kept checking (and hoping) that they would go on sale. I guess no one else liked them as much as me and I picked them up for $15. They are meant to be!

  12. You are so freakin' cute! I'm so glad you had an awesome Halloween styled weekend. I wish that I could've gone out here in Athens but, alas, I had to work. Still, I loved seeing everyone in costume walking the streets. Maybe you have some pics to share, eh? :D
