Yellow Fall

When Dolly and Dotty approached me to do a collaboration with them, I was beyond thrilled! Their online shop is full of vintage and retro-inspired dresses, separates, and more. It was pretty hard to narrow down the dress I wanted to choose, but I finally went with the Lola Dress in yellow. I have been needing a yellow dress for a while, and this was is so classic, fun, and comfortable! It has a great 50s shape to it, polka dots, and comes with an adjustable matching belt.

I love pairing yellow with orange and brown in the fall to mirror the shades of the leaves. I also love that this dress is very easily remixed into lots of different outfits. It's a great standalone piece, but can also be layered for cooler months. Yellow is great because it works in almost any season. I might even use it to Disneybound as Belle when I go to Florida! Is anyone else dying of anticipation for the new Beauty and the Beast movie? I CANNOT WAIT. Beauty and the Beast was my favorite when I was little and it's also my mom's favorite Disney movie. We both can't wait to see it together!

I know that I have said that I usually keep a low profile in November after the craziness of October, but so far, November has been full of travel as well! I went to Amish country for a weekend with Nadia at the beginning of the month. I also went to three different cities to see Good Charlotte on their current tour. Teenage dream complete. They were awesome as usual. I always leave their shows with a good feeling.

My November has started to slow down now, though. Last weekend I worked and then celebrated my dad's birthday with our family. Thanksgiving was pretty quiet since a lot of family is away. I definitely felt like I was going to explode by the end of the day from all the food I ate. This weekend I didn't do much. I slept and rested a lot, which was nice.

I am getting more and more pumped for Christmas despite it not feeling like it's Christmastime yet. I'm not complaining about the weather, though. I've started listening to Christmas music and I did a lot of Christmas shopping online this weekend during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales. I think I got the majority of my shopping done already! Now I can focus on all the upcoming Christmas festivities that will be happening next month and deciding what to do for New Year's. :)

Snapshots from Salem

I actually didn't take many photos in Salem, but I did manage to snap a few. We mainly just walked around, took in the sights and atmosphere of it all, shopped, and ate. We visited the cemetery and went to a bunch of the witchy shops. We ate at a yummy BBQ place. Of course, we visited the Harry Potter shop as well. We also checked out this hard cider place that makes their own right in Salem called Far From The Tree. I tried the Ember and Beetlejuice ciders and they were amazing. Ember was my favorite, though.

There's really nothing like Salem, especially in October. It's Halloween all month, basically, and there are people everywhere and there's constantly something to do and see. It's so historical, nautical, and spooky all in one. I really would love to live there. I can't say it enough. Next to Disney, it's probably the most magical place I've been.
