Group Halloween Costume Ideas: DIY Scooby-Doo Gang

Group Costume Ideas: DIY Scooby Doo Costumes

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love seeing all of the kids dressed up, but I love to dress up too! Here is a fun group Halloween costume idea (or family!): the Scooby Doo gang! I think that this would be fun with a group of friends or if you dressed up your little one as Scooby! Check out these fun DIY Scooby Doo costume ideas!

Group Costume Ideas: DIY Scooby Doo Costumes

A few things I love about these costumes:

A. They are inexpensive.

B. They use pieces of real clothing that you can wear again throughout the year. I hate spending a ton on a costume that we wear once for a few hours. Putting together our own costumes isn’t just a fun look, but it’s a great excuse to expand your wardrobe a bit. 🙂

Let’s start with Daphne.

Fall Date Night Outfit – Get the Look For Less

Fall Date Night Outfit - Look For Less

I don’t know about you, but around here the end of summer vacation is bittersweet. I wish it would last forever and I’m sad when Joshua heads back to school, but on the other hand…it means fall is just around the corner! I love fall. Like loooove it. I’m the stereotypical fall girl – bring on the hoodies, bonfires, colors and of course the pumpkin.

While hoodies can be a perfectly acceptable fall clothing option, sometimes you need to look a little more pulled together. This is a great fall date night outfit, it’s good for your budget and even includes a few Kate Spade items!

Fall Date Night Look For Less

 

If you are looking for a little more trendy outfit, swap out the leopard ballet flats for a pair of wedge booties! Bonus: Wedges are easier to walk in than heels, so if you usually say no to a few extra inches try wedges!

Here is what we used!

It all starts with the basics. This sweater comes in a ton of different colors and is only $12.99. You can’t beat that!

Fashion For Women: Striped Maxi Skirt

Fashion For Mom - Affordable outfits for women

I’m all about casual fashion. I love my yoga pants and it is so easy to wear them since I work from home, but I’ve been making sure that they are only worn to the gym. (You know, for real yoga… 🙂 ) But maxi dresses are the dressed up version of yoga pants. Super comfortable, but still presentable. Easy to wear, but still adorable.

[Tweet “Maxi skirts are the classy yoga pants. You need them in your life. #Fashion #Style”]

It all started with the skirt. This one is available in lots of different colors and stripe patterns. It also has great reviews!

Get the skirt here for $22.98!

I have major problems with my feet. If I don’t wear shoes with good support, the arches hurt the next day. Recently I discovered Sanuk flip flops. Oh my gosh. Y’all. These are amazing. They feel SO good on. The shoe is made from the same material that yoga mats are made of. Once you try them you will fall in love. Luckily they have lots of colors and styles available!

Get the flip flops here for $22.94!

You can always count on Kohl’s for picking up great closet staples like this tank. I like my tanks long so they are perfect for layering and this one is the perfect length!

Now I love diamonds like the next girl, but sometimes I want the look of diamonds but not the price of them. Ever since I took Josh to an amusement park and one of my diamond studs got lost, I have been much more aware of where I am wearing them too! I have this pair of Swarovski Zirconia earrings and the look good enough to be the real thing. For less than $20.

The original handbag that was used in this outfit has sold out. 🙁 But no worries, this bag is very similar and is from the same company. And it’s still just $29!

Pottery Barn Inspired Living Room: Get the Look For Less

Pottery Barn Inspired Living Room

I love getting catalogs in the mail. Do you remember when you were little and the toy catalogs would come before Christmas? I would circle the cool toys that I wanted and hoped for. Plus, everything new that I found that I didn’t even know that I wanted!

Many years later, I still get excited when catalogs get delivered. Flipping through dreaming of stocking my closet, redecorating our home, or cruises to take. And while I may not circle everything in them anymore, I do keep the catalogs around for longer than I should. And I keep my eyes open for look alike pieces that I can use to recreate the looks in my budget.

Pottery Barn Inspired Living Room ORIGINAL

This living room is from Pottery Barn. Their website is just as full of inspiration as their catalogs! I love the neutral colors with the pop of patterns (and color) on the pillow.

Pottery Barn Inspired Living Room

I’m a big fan of splurging on things, but I also know I need to create things in my budget. Here are some great look alike pieces that we used to recreate the look.

The Sofa:

The original sofa from Pottery Barn is available in many colors and looks like you could just sink into it. But with a price tag of $2,299 (and living in a house with kids and dogs) it’s not in my budget. This Baxton Studio Leather Sectional Sofa has good reviews, ships for free and has the same shape that this room is looking for! Plus, it’s $888.38.

The Tables:

I love the look of the Tanner Cube Tables. They have a classic look, slightly industrial, clean lines and it will never go out of style. The end tables are $259 from Pottery Barn, but I found these Southern Enterprises Metal Frame End Tables from Target for just $66.99.

The Sofa table is also from Southern Enterprises at Target! It is only $129.99.

The Lamp:

I really love the Emery Floor Lamp from Pottery Barn. Originally $499, it’s on sale for $399. Luckily I found this Illuminada Glass Ball Floor Lamp that is half of that!

The Rug:

This Nate Berkus (LOVE him) Diamond Area rug from Target is a great neutral and will add a fantastic layer and awesome texture to your room!

Pottery Barn Inspired Living Room ORIGINAL

The Pillows:

Ask my friends and they will tell you that I am a sucker for two things when it comes to shopping for our house: pillows and blankets. I think both items can completely change the look of your room! Don’t be shy: Colors don’t have to match, mix up the textures and fabrics, and patterns.

The Details:

A room isn’t complete without some decorative accessories.

Navy & Silver Summer Fashion Outfit For Women

Navy and Silver Summer Fashion Outfit For Women - Affordable and Adorable!  LOVE!

If you were to ask me about my style I would tell you that it can definitely be described as classic. I like classic colors, classic styles, and classic pieces that can be mixed and matched time and time again to create fantastic outfits time and time again. I like being able to find favorite things and be able to wear them five years later because some things just never go out of style.

Don’t get me wrong! I love having a few fun trendy pieces to add to to the mix. But every outfit is usually made up with the classics and maybe a trendy piece here and there. Just like today’s outfit! Classic accessories and jeans with a swing top. All in classic colors. All affordable. All gorgeous!

Navy and Silver Summer Fashion Outfit For Women - Affordable and Adorable!  LOVE!

I love this shirt. The color is a gorgeous shade of navy. The fabric is perfect for summer and the shape of the shirt is perfect and flattering. If you are like me and have a few insecurities about a few um, acquired extras, this top will help you look and feel like a million bucks!

Get the top here!

Navy and Silver Summer Fashion Outfit For Women - Affordable and Adorable!  LOVE!

The top had some really amazing silver detailing. It would look great with dark denim, but there is something so pretty about a pair of crisp, white denim.

Get the jeans here!

Navy and Silver Summer Fashion Outfit For Women - Affordable and Adorable!  LOVE!

This is my favorite brand of nail polish. Their colors are beautiful, they go on super smooth and they last longer than other brands do on my nails. (I’m notorious for painting them and having them chip a few hours later! A good polish like this helps so much to have my manicure last longer.) A pretty navy shade will help pull this look together.

Get the nail polish here!

These shoes from Ralph Lauren are available in lots (and lots) of colors. The wedges have a great shape and are made well.

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. But unfortunately they are not my bank account’s best friend. Luckily these earrings are pretty enough that no one will know the difference. Well, except for your bank account!

Layering together watches and bracelets are a great way to add texture and interest to an outfit. This sweet bracelet is a great reminder!
