Peachy Peplum and a Busy Week

It's only Wednesday, but this week feels very long already, mostly because I've had so much going on:

Our work Halloween party at Local Marketing, Inc. 
I love giving the staff an opportunity to have fun and bond with co-workers. Halloween is the perfect time to do that: costumes, candy and scary movie trivia!

Halloween at home in our neighborhood.
I love seeing all the kids dressed up and handing out (good) candy. It's such a fun night and a childhood rite of passage. I felt very old, though, when I would see costumes I didn't recognize, like anything from Minecraft.

Celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary.
This week, Chapin and I are celebrating 17 years together and 13 years married. Chapin surprised me by stopping by the office with these beautiful flowers from Petals A Florist. He knows how to make me smile!

Now, on to the fashion! Here are today's dress details:

Dress: BCBGMaxAzria Ashleigh Sleeveless Zipper Peplum Dress in Light Geranium

On Lips: Clinique Pink Honey Almost Lipstick

I love when my shade of lipstick perfectly matches the shade of my dress!

Earrings: Three Sisters Jewelry Diamond Bar Stud Earrings

I adore these earrings. They go with everything, and I always get so many compliments on them. They make a great gift, too -- just ask my sister, Laura.

Sandals: Jimmy Choo Fearne Glitter Criss-Cross Wedges in Beige

You can buy these exact wedges on Saks Off 5th (on sale), but they also come in a variety of other colors: Anthracite (black), Champagne, GoldNude and more. This particular shoe tends to run small; I'm normally a 38.5 (8.5) in Jimmy Choo, and I'm a 39 (9) in these sandals.

Jimmy Choo is probably my favorite of the designer brands, mostly because the shoes are designed with real feet in mind. Be careful when buying shoes from designers like Manolo Blahnik, who tends to think most women have very narrow feet!

Since I've gotten more into running over the past few years, my feet have changed. Calluses have developed, and I feel more comfortable in a slightly wider or bigger shoe. As always, if you're not sure about your size, just go to the store and try on some different options. Shoe shopping is always more fun that way!
