Can you believe we’re already almost halfway through October?! It BLOWS my mind y’all. But here we are, Halloween just around the corner and there’s nothing I can do to slow it all down. Speaking of the 31st, it’s on a Monday this year. Womp womp. Does anyone have any fun plans?

I feel like I’ve been traveling a lot lately and so it’s been really  nice to be in town for the past few days and into the weekend. And I’m SO excited to be home for this coming weekend too! That is, before jetting off to my next location. BUT then after this upcoming trip, I’m going to take a legit break from traveling and get ready for the Holidays IRL (in real life lol) and for the blog (aka business).

What’s in the BTD Pipeline?

But for now, I wanted to update y’all on some of the posts I’ve been working on and some that are still in the works but that I wanted to update you guys on the status. If I forgot anything, please feel free to weigh in like y’all have been in my recent BTD WEEKLY blog posts! I LOVE LOVE LOVE hearing from you!

I just realized that my favorite tunic sweater was restocked in all sizes AND another color was added. Okay but hold on because I’m actually not wearing it in this photo – this outfit is actually from last year (from this original bog post). BUT this long tunic-length sweater reminded me of my CURRENT favorite long sweater that I’ve been wearing SO MUCh lately because it’s long enough to wear with leggings and I like that it covers my rear (ha!). Anyway, I wanted to let y’all know that it was restocked and you can find it here!
