Monthly Muse: October 2018 Favorites

No comments
The end of October is just around the corner. The month feels like it went extremely slow and I'm so grateful for that! I always get a little depressed heading into November because I know my favorite time of year is coming to a close. I'm going to make sure to enjoy every day of my favorite seasons before I have to say goodbye to them again.

October was good to me. There was a lot of anxiety, a lot of realizations and some things that didn't work out but I'm hoping that things fall into place soon. It sounds so cryptic but I promise when I'm able to tell you, I will!

I loved so many things, as usual this month but mostly fashion items, including two handbags!

Tory Burch Minnie Ballet Flats

As much as I love Fall, I never quite feel prepared for the weather shift. Thankfully this year, I had a pair of comfortable flats that fit really well. I've been having so much difficulty with finding shoes that fit but this past spring when I found these flats on sale, it was a match made in heaven. They are so comfortable and fold up for travel which is a great little perk. I need more pairs and I have my eyes on the quilted ones.

Erin Condren Planner


This was a spur of the moment purchase earlier this month and wow, it has changed my life. I will be doing a full post on this later in the month so I won't go into too much detail but I've been using the Erin Condren Life Planner, Vertical Edition, as my home/main planner. I've been decorating it with stickers and really using it as productively as I could. I'm obsessed and really don't know why I've never purchased it before.

Tory Burch Perry Tote

This is an old favorite that I used for the better part of the month as my work bag. I can't say enough good things about this tote. The leather is very soft, pliable and the bag itself is lightweight. No matter how much time passes, I always go back to this as a work bag. It's stylish yet plain and fits everything you could ever need. I want to get another one in a different color and I'm curious to try out the new version Tory Burch recently put out.

Kate Spade Cameron St Flock Roses Binx


You might've seen me post this on my Instagram a few weeks ago but I was able to score this bag at 50% off on eBay, still in the wrapping and with the tags on it. It's currently on sale at Kate Spade so I recommend picking it up ASAP before it sells out. I am obsessed with this mini backpack! It is so cute, very compact and fits a lot of stuff, more than you would suspect. It is perfect for Fall and Winter, because of the black color and velvet roses but it's still stylish for the warmer months as well. I've worn it as a backpack and as a shoulder bag and loved it both ways. Wearing it as a backpack is very convenient when shopping and I don't know how I'll ever use another bag again when running errands. I HIGHLY recommend this bag but if you're not into the velvet roses, try another mini backpack from Kate Spade

Franco Sarto Mules


My mom was cleaning out her closet this month and she was going to throw out a pair of mules she never wore. I was in the market for a new pair of mules so I figured I'd just take hers! They are a tad bit small but I make them work. They're a little more masculine than I'd like but after wearing them once I fell in love with them. I got so many compliments on them, they're comfortable and I just love how they go with every outfit. I must get another pair of mules soon! They aren't available anymore but these are similar!
