video: october favorites

Happy Halloween!

Halloween means the end of the month of October, which means that it's time for another favorites video. Two videos in one week? Just a little treat for you!

Some makeup, perfume, and home scents made it into this month's favorite things. And have you seen Orange is the New Black? If not, I highly suggest carving out some time to do that! What were some things you loved in the month of October?

video: what's in my bag? {work edition}

I've been meaning to do this post for awhile now and was glad that I finally had some time to film it over the weekend.

When I was looking for a work bag, I needed something that was structured and roomy because I carry a lot with me on a normal work day. This Michael Kors tote is the perfect size and the shape that I was looking for.

To be honest, this bag is kind of empty for a work day. Sometimes you can also find my iPad, a pair of heels {or flats}, and a water bottle stowed away in there. Trust me, this thing is really roomy.

If you're looking for a work bag, I highly suggest giving this one some thought. It may seem pricey, but it's worth the investment!

eat this, wear that: candy corn bark

Halloween is just a few days away and while it may not be something I'm that excited about, I still couldn't resist in taking part of the celebrations. This candy corn bark just looked too delicious to pass up and style.

Candy Corn Bark || TopShop Geo Quilted Jumper || H&M Sleeveless Chiffon Blouse || J Brand Twill Skinny Jeans || Tory Burch Reva Flats || BaubleBar Bold Beaded Strands || Formula X for Sephora Polish in Turbo || IIIBeCa by Joy Gryson Leather Satchel

I'll be honest, the idea of styling a look that had paired such bold colors of orange and yellow was too intimidating. I took a safer route and used them to brighten up the neutral color palette of this simple outfit. You can never go wrong with black and white, adding orange and yellow just make it more festive for Halloween.

Happy Monday!

friday's fancies: halloween boo-tiful

When I set out to create this week's Friday's Fancies look, I found this dress and decided immediately that it would be the one piece I needed to include. The black and white print just screamed "Halloween horror film" to me. It looks a little bit eerie, don't you think?...

Like I mentioned in my Fall in Love Tag video, I'm not a huge Halloween fan so this look is pretty minimal. I still love it though and think it has just enough bright orange, eerie white, and vampy purple to keep in the spirit!
Happy weekend! Hope it's a great one!

what to wear: navy & black

Navy and black has been my favorite color combo as of late. I used to think that there was no way you could wear these two together; both colors are so dark that it was almost monotone and kind of clashed. Well, I have been so wrong. Whether it's clothes or just accessories, these two look chic and classy together. And no matter the occasion, this pairing is great for the season.

Sprinkles and Style || Navy & Black: Daytime Casual

Sprinkles and Style || Navy & Black: 9 to 5 Chic
Sprinkles and Style || Navy & Black: Night Out

Three outfit ideas that, if I had all of these pieces in my closet, I would definitely wear at some point this season. I just can't get enough of this color pairing!

What are some of your favorite color combos this season?

I'm a makeup lover, that's not much of a surprise. While I mention some pricier products on my blog in posts, there are a ton of drugstore finds that I am a huge fan of. So, I thought I'd share some of those with you in a new video!

What are some of your favorite products from the drugstore? I'm always looking for new things to try out!

eat this, wear that: blood orange crème brûlée

Sprinkles and Style || Eat This, Wear That: Blood Orange Crème Brûlée

The color palette of this delicious looking dessert has me thinking of fall. Warm yellow, chocolate brown, and deep reds with a hint of orange - colors that most definitely work together for the season. This ensemble would be perfect for the chillier weather that has hit the New York. A tucked in tee with a textured skirt and suede boots paired with a blazer and chunky accessories is a good go-to outfit that is appropriate for lots of occasions.

Happy Monday!

friday's fancies: travel chic

I'd be lying if I said I didn't typically wear leggings and flats and carried a backpack when I travel by plane. It's probably not the chicest of looks, but it is most definitely comfortable and easy. I thought I would try and step it up a notch while staying true to my travel style for this week's Friday's Fancies.

Sprinkles and Style || Friday's Fancies: Travel Chic
I love the simplicity of this outfit with the fun touch of a plaid backpack. This is most definitely an outfit I would wear during a day of travel.
Happy weekend!

eat this, wear that: pumpkin cream cheese bread

The story behind this week's Eat This, Wear That post: I saw this picture on Pinterest and wanted to run to the store and get the ingredients for this because it looked and sounded delicious. To me, that is a clear sign that a recipe should be included in this series... don't you think?

Sprinkles and Style || Eat This, Wear That: Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bread
I was immediately drawn to this orange matte drawstring pants, though I don't think I have the guts to wear them myself. Paired with a slim sweater and metallic heels, this outfit is one that I would consider wearing out on the town - something to spice up a Monday night! Neutral makeup and a pretty glam bracelet are the perfect accompaniments.

If you have the day off, I hope you're enjoying the long weekend! I am spending today watching Orange is the New Black. Have you seen this Netflix series? I watched a few episodes last night and am obsessed!

Happy Monday!

friday's fancies: celebrating 150

With the busy week I had, it seems like it's been so long since I did any type of fashion-related post. But with this week's special 150th edition of Friday's Fancies, I just couldn't pass up on this fun celebration!

Sprinkles and Style || Friday's Fancies: A Celebratory LBD
Sometimes there's nothing better than a LBD. A little black dress really can save the day, make you feel beautiful and chic, and fit any occasion. Armed with some darker toned accessories and some added color on your lips and your shoes, this outfit is one that screams party and sophistication.

Check out other party outfits on long distance loving!

Happy weekend!

eat this, wear that: mini buckeye cheesecakes

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I took a short trip this weekend with my parents to watch the President's Cup in Ohio. And with Ohio being as the Buckeye State, I couldn't help but make this week's Eat This, Wear That an ode to the delicious treat.

Sprinkles and Style || Eat This, Wear That: Mini Buckeye Cheesecakes
If you love peanut butter and chocolate, I don't think there is any way that you could pass up these buckeye candy-inspired cheesecakes. This outfit may be completely neutral but I like the little bit of sparkle from the BaubleBar necklace and Lucky gold tipped flats.
Happy Monday!

delicious steals: stuart weitzman 5050 boot lookalikes

It seems that every fall I am always looking for new boots. One that I've had my eye on for a few years now are the Stuart Weitzman 5050 boots. I absolutely love these, especially its elastic and stretchy back panel that looks like it will fit my wide calves. The one thing I don't love? The price. I honestly can't even imagine spending $598 for a pair of boots. It seems like a huge investment, one that I'm not willing to make even if they are most likely amazing quality and will last for years.

So this year, I decided to look for some alternatives. And I think I've found a few good lookalikes!

Sprinkles and Style || Delicious Steals: Stuart Weitzman 5050 Boot Lookalikes

I think these four are good choices for a similar look. The Franco Sarto pair is my personal favorite. And if black leather isn't your thing, a few of these five boot selections come in suede and other colors.

So what do you think? Are these good budget-friendly picks? If you know of any more, let me know!
