HELLO November + that means Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner. While I am ready to jump head first into the holidays, the temps here in LA are still on the warm side so I am embracing some chic fall dresses from Red Dress Boutique to get me through the rest of the fall season, Thanksgiving + any other autumn days!
Red Dress Boutique has always been one of my go-to online shops for all things cute and affordable and for fall they certainly don’t disappoint! This Rust colored dress I am wearing is a favorite of mine (I own this style of dress in SO many colors).
This will definitely be my dress for Thanksgiving dinner (even though we are just staying in + cooking up some turkey) hehe. I paired it with RAYE booties from REVOLVE + my trustee Louis Vuitton Pouchette Metis. These boots are super comfortable by the way + match with so many different options when it comes to outfits 😉
Now back to my love of Red Dress Boutique! I love their site because they have easy shipping + returns, a plethora of styles that are all super cute + they are AFFORDABLE! Most of the items I get from Red Dress Boutique are under $75 + the styles are great quality that last me a long time. Anytime I need new sweaters, dresses or skirts I instantly think Red Dress Boutique because no matter what your style they have options for you (girly girl like me or not haha :p)
♥ Here’s Some Of My Favorite Fall Dresses From Red Dress Boutique ♥
Spooky Season is in full swing and ICYMI I recently headed to Walt Disney World a few weeks ago to check out all the Halloween decor, snacks, merch + more! A key part of my trip was shooting some fun Halloween outfits with a touch of Disney magic and that’s exactly what I did! From fun tulle to Halloween tees to festive Minnie Ears + more, I loved the looks I put together and I thought you would too! Whether you are heading to WDW to experience Halloween at Disney for yourself or if you are simply staying home watching Hocus Pocus, here are some fun Disney Style Halloween looks you will love to wear!
TOMORROWLAND HALLOWEEN OUTFIT
I love this skirt because it has a bit of tulle and a fun trim…Paired with the right accessories it is a great skirt to wear year round (Halloween + beyond). This Mickey Mouse belt is from Buckledown products and has become one of my favorites as of late because you can wear it with so many different outfits!
I love this double-sided Shop Harvey’s Bag (sold out) because one side is Mickey and one side is Minnie. I also LOVE this orange lightweight skirt pair with this black denim jacket from REVOLVE. I love mixing fashion forward pieces with some Disney accents for a really trendy look!
Halloween is just around the corner and while there may not be many parties or much trick or treating since we are still in a pandemic, something that is bringing me a little Halloween joy is decorating our place for the ultimate haunted holiday! Whether it’s fun inflatables for outside, a spooky doormat, a new Halloween mug or more, there’s something fun about decorating for Halloween especially now when the world seems like it needs a little fun!

Disney Wedding planning is underway and with all of the uncertainty currently happening in the world one of the parts of wedding planning I was most looking forward to was finding my dream dress! I am beyond excited to share that Demetrios Bridal reached out to me to help me find my dream gown and let me tell you they didn’t disappoint! Prior to my appointment Demetrios Bridal let me know they were doing a Trunk Show at one of their stockists, Mon Amie Bridal in Costa Mesa, CA so I decided now was the time to try on some gorgeous dresses and find the ‘ONE‘!
Prior to my appointment I sent over some of my favorite styles from the Demetrios Bridal website over to the team to assure they had those top picks of mine at Mon Amie Bridal. Since I am having a Disney Wedding at Walt Disney World I knew I wanted a princess style dress…a ball gown with tulle and some embroidery and sparkle…something that felt like Cinderella so I was beyond excited when I got to Mon Amie Bridal with my bridesmaids in tow to begin trying on some gorgeous gowns!
The team at Mon Amie Bridal was beyond sweet + helpful, they had dresses perfect for a Disney Wedding from Demetrios already pulled and they all were flawless so it was quite a tough decision. Here’s a look at some of my favorites I tried on that made me feel like an angel!
The dresses were all so beautiful and it was a surreal moment to actually step into some of these gorgeous gowns. I definitely shed some tears + got pretty emotional. My maid of honor facetimed with my dad in NY so he could give his opinion and it was fun to get a guy’s perspective haha But he cried and we experienced all sorts of emotions thinking about me walking down the aisle.
What I love about Demetrios Bridal is that their gowns feel so unique, special + feminine which is exactly what I was looking for…something dreamy, magical + one of a kind. Demetrios can even customize the dress to my liking which I am so excited about because I am going to add some pretty sleeve detailing to the style I chose (which you will have to see when I walk down the aisle).
The entire Demetrios Bridal collection is impeccable…whether you are looking for a ball gown or an A-line or a mermaid style etc. They create gorgeous dresses for every type of bride which is what made me feel so at ease when picking and choosing different styles.
It was so fun to also add a veil and bouquet when trying on the gowns…it really helped me envision what I would look like on my big day. I am still deciding on my veil but I did pick my dress that day after trying on a variety of styles…it was a tough decision but I went with a gorgeous ball gown which I can’t wait to share with you all!
A big thank you to Demetrios Bridal for helping me find my dream dress and Mon Amie Bridal Salon for the amazing experience for my dress try on! All photography shot by Vanessa Hicks Photography.
I’m back to reality this week after spending a magical week in Orlando at Disney World to kick off the fall season as part of #DisneyCreators! I had the amazing opportunity to hang with other influencers + experience everything new for Halloween at Walt Disney World Resort from new merchandise to tasty treats to spooky decor + more. There were so many favorites so here’s a few Halloween highlights I wanted to share with y’all!
One of my favorite parts of Halloween at Disney World are the festive decorations. Nothing makes me happier than seeing Mickey pumpkins line Main Street and this year they are back in full force along with fall leaves and adorable signage.
Since there are no character meet + greets currently at Disney World as part of their safety guidelines for COVID, there are fun character cavalcades that go around the parks at various times throughout the day. I loved the Halloween ones at Magic Kingdom like the one with Winnie the Pooh and friends dressed up in Halloween costumes or the Nightmare Before Christmas float complete with spooky music from the movie + more! This was one of my favorite parts of Magic Kingdom to keep the spooky spirit alive and well.
You know I love stocking up on new Disney merch and the new goodies didn’t disappoint from Spirit Jerseys to Popcorn buckets to Ears to Plushes, Decor + more…I love all the spooky must haves and definitely stocked up on a ton from ShopDisney and from WDW!
Villain Clue was a must have + I couldn’t wait to buy it and I can’t wait to play it!
OK, other than stocking up on merch you know one of my favorite things to enjoy during Halloween at Disney World are the yummy treats! From desserts to drinks to savory snacks + more, Disney never disappoints when it comes to the food! One of my favs? The Pumpkin Spice Milkshake – how cute is it?
I also LOVED the Pumpkin Spiced Waffle Sundae + Orange and Black Sugar Churros. Honestly all the food is way to yummy! Full food roundup on the Disney Parks Blog!
While there are more safety precautions in place this time around, it didn’t make the experience any less magical, in fact smaller crowds, more opportunities for photos + short lines for rides + food! It was pretty magical if you ask me!
