Happy Halloween! As you can see, I've gone all pink this year with my furry sidekick! Legally Blonde is one of the most popular chick flicks during the early 2000's, and I knew I wanted to recreate this look one day for Halloween:
It was something about the pink leather jacket, flashy sunglasses, and cute pup in this photo that made me wish I was Elle Woods when I was in first grade. Every Halloween, I always try to make a costume that reflects my year. Elle Woods, a fashion student who pursued attending Harvard Law, dropped everything for the guy of her dreams...only to find herself proving to others her capability to be a successful lawyer despite her colleagues (and now ex-boyfriend) believing otherwise. Although my life story isn't entirely aligned with the movie plot, the obstacles Elle Woods faced when she was building her career really spoke to me now that I'm an adult trying to overcome the ideal expectations from my past and embrace the new changes in my future.
And of course, with my new pet Rajah, I knew he was the Bruiser to my Elle! To me, this costume is a big statement for female empowerment! Plus, I also wanted to wear pink to showcase Breast Cancer Awareness Month, too. Continue reading on to learn how you can also create this Halloween look!

October is here, so it's time to celebrate Halloween! Being labeled as the "DIY Queen of Halloween" from my friends for many years gives you a little indication of just how much I absolutely adore this holiday. The idea of transforming into someone else once a year makes me try to find new creative ways to DIY iconic costumes on a budget (if you want to see my Halloween costume last year, click this). Since I want to challenge myself in outdoing last year's costume, I knew I had to start a Halloween costume series this year, and what better way to celebrate early than by exploring the Big Apple: New York City.
If you ever watched Gossip Girl, then you'll completely understand why I chose to run around looking like a wannabe Blair Waldorf in NYC. To keep it short, the show consists of the best fashion outfits to have ever graced television, the most iconic scenes are taken at the most popular areas of the city, and anyone would wish to live the luxurious life of an Upper East Sider. When the television series was running, I remembered drooling over Blair and Serena's wardrobe each episode + wishing I would find a guy like Dan Humphrey. As I was recreating three different looks, I was surprised to find out how easy it was to style Gossip Girl-like outfits. Keep reading on to find out just how easy it is to achieve a stylish Gossip Girl Halloween costume.

October has arrived! What a wonderful season to be in Texas! No matter how much I enjoy living in tank tops and shorts, I can't doubt my love for this month. I'm so excited to start wearing sweaters, booties, and cute scarves, but I know that it will take a while until Houston gets a cold front! Until then, I'm enjoying my time transitioning my summer pieces into Fall-appropriate styles.
Based on what I've seen in magazines, stores, and online sites, a HUGE trend to watch out for are "retro-chic" looks. Pieces that are popular this season are culottes, palazzo pants, bell sleeves, and flared hemming. I wanted to arise to the occasion when I found (probably one of the cutest) folded culottes! Read on to find out how I styled this comfy-chic Fall outfit...
