SALE ALERT: Had to update this post to mention that Express just announced a 40% off Storewide Sale. So most of my tops and jeans in these outfits are currently 40% off!

Notes: These Leopard flats were a killer bargain at under $25. They do run a little big so I had to go down a half-size to get them to stay on my feet when I walk. I had a question about their comfort level on Instagram, and for me, they're decent. I don't really find flats to be the most comfortable in general (which is one big reason why I don't wear them often), and these are about average for the price. (Similar in comfort to what I've experienced with similar-priced flats from Target.) I may end up adding a padded insole for extra cushion.

Notes: My pink cami and cardigan are both from Express last year. The exact cami style is still available in a light pink like mine. And while my exact cardigan didn't come back they do have a very similar option (see it in the widget below) that comes in four neutral colors.

Notes: Here's another example of what I talked about in Tuesday's post of making simple changes to outfits with my year-round staples to give them a Fall look. I wore basically the same outfit this summer (see it here) except with shorts, but added burgundy shoes and dark nails to make it look like a Fall outfit despite temps in the 80s!

Notes: Although I do find this tee a little fussy to get tucked exactly right (and unfortunately it looks very sloppy untucked) it really does have exactly the right relaxed fit that I like. I'm wearing an XS here, which is what I wear in all of my tops from Express. It currently comes in eight colors, and since a burgundy tee has been on my wishlist for Fall, I think that will be my next pick!

Stranded: Halloween Candy
And now let's go on to the Bonus Material today! I'm joining Erika and Shay today for their Stranded series where we share three things in a given category that we would take if we were stranded on a deserted island. This month's topic is Halloween Candy, and since I have a major sweet tooth I couldn't resist participating.
1. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
I can't find any nutritional justification for these Twix bites but I love them anyway! I find this bite-sized version a little better than the regular full-sized Twix candy bar. I can have just a couple of pieces and reseal the bag since I don't usually want a full sized Twix all in one sitting. I do have a sweet tooth but I also have a conscience about consuming that much sugar and fat all at once.
I do love chocolate but I imagine if I were stranded I'd want an alternative to chocolate now and then, and Skittles are my #1 favorite non-chocolate candy. They are also the candy I pass out every year at Halloween now. I'm a Halloween nerd (not to be confused with the candy) and for a few years I kept notes in my phone about how many bags of candy I purchased for Trick-or-Treaters, what type of candy I bought, and which seemed the most popular (particularly when I bought the mixed bags of candy). Long story short, Skittles came out on top, and now that's all I buy to pass out each year!
Even though I can remember to get Skittles every year, I still have keep notes in my phone on how many bags I purchase and how much is left over. Otherwise I honestly don't remember how much I need. It's hard to figure out the right amount so that we don't run out early but also aren't left with a bunch of extra Trick-or-Treat candy, especially considering my own kids bring home plenty!
* * *If all goes as planned this week I should have another set of outfits to share on Friday along with some favorites so I hope you'll check back then!
