Nordstrom, Halloween and other Weekend Things

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. We snuck out for a date night Friday and then had a BBQ with friends on Saturday and my parents over last night for dinner.  A perfect way to spend a perfect fall weekend!  The weather has been absolutely amazing around  here and I'm trying to enjoy every second of it.

I was lucky enough to sneak out of the house on Sunday for a little solo shopping trip to Nordstrom.  I had to return a dress and couldn't resist browsing while I was there.  I'm trying really hard to only buy things I know I will wear all the time when I stumbled upon this sweater.


The pictures do not do it justice at all- it looks so much better in person! It is a nice soft (not itchy) over sized cardigan that will be perfect with leggings or skinny jeans.  It's also long enough to cover my backside without out being too big, if that makes sense, which is hard to find sometimes. They also had a gray color I loved by didn't have it in my size in store.

BP Skater Sunglasses
While browsing I found these sunglasses and had to have them.  As I've said 100 times with small kids I prefer to have cheap sunglasses right now and these are great wayfarer knock offs. At only $12 it's a win win!

Our Nordstrom just recently started carrying the Topshop line in store and I fell in love with this vest. I still  can't decide if I can pull off the faux fur vest but I love it. 


Kyle picked up a new red wine the other day and we're totally hooked.  It's pretty cheap but delicious and doesn't taste cheap at all which is a must in my book if I'm spending under $10.  If you're looking for a good inexpensive red give this one a try.



So I'm a little behind but I'm thinking of doing a firefighter and dalmatian for Halloween for the boys this year. I figure this might be the last year Miller let's me pick his costume so I better pick something cute :)
I love these costumes from Pottery Barn kids but do not love the price tags so I'm the hunt for some cheaper options and or possibly making my own costumes. 



Here is my inspriation picture...
How cute is that above with the wagon turned  into a firetruck!!?? I'm pretty sure that is what we're going to do.  The cul de sac next to us apparently has a big Halloween party every year so we're so excited to see if it lives up the hype!

I'm picking up some paint samples today for the powder room and will keep you posted on what we decide!

Happy Monday Friends!

  1. That would be the cutest Halloween costume and I'm sure you can make/find it cheaper! Have you checked out the Melissa and Doug fireman costume? Possibly still 25% off at diapers.com too... I have my eye on a PBK costume (not sold in stores of course) for Emma Grace but even when they're offering a discount their shipping charges are insane!! Abby say their butterfly costume and fell in love but I'm not about to buy her a $90 Halloween costume!!

  2. I love that cardigan! My boys were a fireman and dog for Teague's first Halloween. We did the M&D fireman costume and it has been used for dress up for years now and I found a very similar puppy costume at Marshalls/TJMaxx. I made a puppy costume one year - out of a towel and felt but it wasn't for a walking/moving baby. Love the wagon idea!

  13. Those costumes are the BEST idea! Seriously, do all of the cute costumes you can force on them while you can! Avery is trying to talk me into some $150 princess costume this year and I'm all like NEVER!

  14. A fireman and puppy is adorable, and can't be hard to pull off handmade! Although, I know buying them is so much easier.

  18. Target has a great Melissa and Doug Fireman costume! I think it was under $18.99. It is not in Halloween, but in the toys as it is part of their dress up collection. IT comes with fun props like a hat and walkie talkie. SS dressed up as a fire girl last year! She still plays with the costume, which is a nice bonus.

  19. Yes I agree with Katie above. You can find a Melissa and Doug firefighter costume for a better price. I love that idea of making the wagon a firetruck. Too darn cute!!!

  20. I love that Halloween costume(s) idea!! And that cardigan and vest and sunglasses! You always make me want to shop!! :)

  21. Cute Halloween idea! I always loved PBK kids costumes (and was really sad when Mason outgrew them), but the prices..... ugh! I usually lucked out with finding them on ebay for a lot less and then was able to sell them the following year on ebay for almost what I paid (sometimes even more!). I don't know if Old Navy has their costumes out yet, but theirs are usually really cute, very warm, and a lot less money. Gymboree almost always has a cute firefighter costume too.

  22. Oh my gosh, that is the cutest costume idea!! I hope you find something more cost effective! Also, that sweater looks sooo comfy - I need to hit up Nordstrom soon!

  23. Open front, big chunky cardigans are my everything this time of year (or at least late in the evening and for early morning puppy walks). Love this one you chose! Your boys are going to be just precious on Halloween I do predict ;)

  24. I am loving those sunglasses! What a steal. And I am stumped on what to do for Sophie for halloween she may not be able to say the words trick or treat, but she'll be old enough this year to go.

  25. Noah was the fireman (from PBKids) last year and we loved the costume! Such great quality! No younger sibling to be the puppy dog so I instead bought some Dalmatian ears for myself to wear ;). I love the whole theme!
