Halloween in Salem!

Halloween in Salem Rent the Runway Salem Witches

Happy Halloween Witches! This past Halloweekend I was lucky enough to visit Salem, Massachusetts with two of my BFFs from college. I’ve loved witches, horror movies and scary things ever since I can remember. So a Halloween visit to Salem is one of the best things to ever happen to me. It was a cloudy and windy day which normally isn’t ideal, but in Salem it really set the mood.

Salem is super small so if you’re anywhere near the Northeast, it’s a great place to go for a day trip. There’s a ton of history, cute shops and of course witch culture going on all year. While October is the most popular time to visit Salem, you can really go anytime of the year and still get a scary cool experience. I recommend visiting HausWitch Home + Healing for candles, spells and home decor. I spent more than I would like to admit there on candles and tarot cards. You should also go to Brew Box for a coffee. If you’re there during Halloween, I recommend getting a psychic reading at the psychic fair. It’s basically a room full of psychics and you book one for a half hour to 15 minutes. I had a great reading that really centered me. After my reading, we walked around the graveyard.

Believe it or not, there’s a lot to do in Salem in the non-witch category too. It’s a cute New England town with some of the sweetest boutiques. My favorite so far is Curtsy. Speaking of fashion, I’m wearing a super witchy Jill Stuart Black Lace Retro Sleeve Sheath Dress from Rent the Runway. I paired it with Tahari Corbin Over-The-Knee Boots and Star Power by Spanx High Waist Shaping Tights because those always work magic.

I’m so glad that we’re making this a yearly tradition because that’s what Halloween is all about – friends and witches (who can become your friends too)!

Apple Picking at Beak & Skiff Apple Orchard

I recently experienced the perfect fall day at Beak & Skiff Apple Orchard in upstate New York. I even broke out my new UNIQLO Women’s Flannel Checked Long-Sleeve Shirt and Hunter Boots for the occasion. My fiance and I had a blast picking apples in the orchard and exploring Beak & Skiff’s winery and cider house. We picked fresh Jonagold apples and have been enjoying them ever since.

I can’t wait to go back next fall. There’s still so much of this farm that we have yet to explore.

In The Details

Kendra Scott Naomi Two Finger Ring Crazy Skakes Milkshake

Crazy shakes can make any day feel like it’s your birthday! But, be sure to share them with multiple people because no one can eat that much. Even if you and your friends don’t want to eat them, they’re still worth it to order to post on Instagram. Let’s face it, half of what we do is for Instagram and the other half is anticipating the next Instagramable opportunity.

This crazy shake is from Mom’s Astoria and even has a cupcake on top. While I only ate the cupcake, it was the perfect backdrop for my Kendra Scott Naomi Ring.  This ring is the best cocktail ring I’ve ever owned. It’s also the best statement piece. I get compliments on it whenever I wear it. The Naomi Ring also comes in Gunmetal BlackRose Gold and White.

I’m really big on vintage jewelry and unique pieces. This necklace belonged to my great Aunt Claire and I absolutely love it. A few of my great aunts recently passed away and my relatives saved their vintage pieces for me. I think they’d be happy to see their jewelry live on. I feel so lucky to have such beautiful one of a kind pieces that once belonged to such amazing women.

Shine Bright!

Anthropologie Iana Striped Skirt

It’s starting to cool down here in New York. So this very well could be my last summer outfit. As I prepare to say goodbye to #summer and hello to #sweaters, I can’t help but look back at all the fun I had in Maine, Central Park and sitting poolside. Summer was fun, but fall is by far the best time to be in NYC. If you’re planning a trip here, try to come in September or October when the weather is perfect for walking around the city streets.

Now that I’ve declared my love of fall, it’s time to get back to this bright summer outfit.
